Three full stories of fun await you at the Continental Mid-town. Whether you’re relaxing in the lounge, swinging in a basket chair on the jet-set mezzanine or taking in the night along the airy rooftop patio, it’s a total reprieve from the expected. The mouth-watering menu features bold and eclectic flavors, from signature jumbo lump crab pad thai and Szechuan shoestring fries to playful spins like cheesesteak eggrolls and French onion soup dumplings. Expertly mixed pop and retro cocktails ensure there’s something for everyone to sip on, no matter the occasion.

Love this place. Food is great. Our waitress was very attentive. We dined outside in the Streetery so that the noise level was not an issue.

Great food and nice setting on the roof deck of Continental Midtown. Music could have been a little softer. Could use more vegetarian options.

Good. Apps were great. Main courses were pricey for what you get. Main courses didn’t have sides or salad. Overall was good. More of a cocktail/app restaurant. Cocktails were very good.

The staff at Continental did a fantastic job of meeting/exceeding my expectations. It was the first company dinner we have had since the pandemic began, many of us were meeting in person for the first time. The staff arranged so that our entire group of twelve was able to sit together. Our server was excellent and he was training a new server, who also did a nice job.

This was my second visit to Continental and I must say, I will be back. We ate a variety of small plates, more food than I thought possible, and EVERY SINGLE ITEM was delicious. Not one complaint from anyone and plenty of compliments about the great restaurant that was chosen.

Keep up the good work!

The host was very nice and accommodating. We picked outside seating for our reservation but wanted to sit inside when we arrived and saw the ambiance of the inside. The host found us a table inside right away with no issue and very kind.

There were 4 of us and we ordered and shared the short rib skewers, lobster Mac, fried chicken and cheesesteak egg rolls….. each one of those was amazing in their own right, down right tasty.
Vibe was on point.
We sat roof top.

Can’t wait to go back

We had drinks and small plates on the roof - the service was great - not the polished setting of other places, but perfect for drinks and a meal with friends.

I haven't been back to Continental Midtown in about 10 years and I was glad to see the same great food and the same great service is still going strong. I was also happy to see the place was crowded, especially in this post-pandemic (?) world. It's always a great experience. Thanks!

Had a really super meal at the Continental - dined outside in one of their covered pods, which protected us well from heavy rain.

The meal was very good. The fried chicken was literally one of the best things I ever ate - crazy good. Also quite good were the French onion soup dumplings. Pad Thai, and shrimp skewers. Drinks were excellent too and service was friendly and attentive. Still a go to location in Center City.

15 of us came to celebrate our friends 40th birthday. Disappointed with the service a little. Shouldn’t have to ask where my food is, I ordered a salad! Supposedly we had an additional sever but she was non existent. Food was pretty good, small menu. Not sure I’d go back again.
