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.

The only real negatives for the ambiance were the fan and road noise. Otherwise a nice job of creating small outdoor booths. Our food was delicious. The Lobster pop tart appetizer was spectacular, the star of the meal. Our server was very friendly. The biggest downer was that it took so long for our appetizer to arrive that it actually arrived AFTER our entees!

I specifically made a reservation for outdoors and called the day before to ask about rooftop seating. Even though I was told that rooftop is not guaranteed and on the first come basis, I was not told that there was a private event scheduled for exact same day and there was no chance for my party to be seated on the rooftop. I felt like I was cheated since they knew I was really interested in the rooftop and didn’t mention private event before I came. I wouldn’t be coming myself and would not recommend this restaurant to any of my friends.

We had a party of 3 and each of us picked 1 lite and 1 main dish. It was plenty of food and a great variety. Salmon Poke was excellent. Steak with bib lettuce was exceptional. I also felt the price was extremely reasonable given the quality of the food. We ate upstairs and we're glad we did. Downstairs is much more vibrant.

Menu updated - most of favorites still there. Brussel Sprouts delicious and Steak wraps - great flavors - just need bigger lettuce cups so bite is not as messy! The shrimp devils were not anything special. Rather noisy at times - especially as it got past 7pm - hard to have a conversation at times!

Ordered multiple appetizers and 3 entrees. Overall good but Wished for more vegetarian entrees. Our vegetarian ended up with pastrami fried rice minus the pastrami.

Yummy froze and excellent friendly knowledgeable waitress.

We have enjoyed the Continental many times and will definitely be back.

I reserved a seat on the rooftop deck for my boyfriends birthday and when we got there they said the server upstairs was overwhelmed/over seated and they sat us at some make shift outdoor seating on the side of the building. The food was really good and I would go back solely for the food!

This is a tried/true spot. My only complaint was waiting an inordinate time for my food. Others at my table nearly finished their dinner salad before my chicken skewers arrived.

Food was kinda gross, weird combinations, trying to incorporate some asian fusion into dishes. Got the chicken kebabs, shrimp kebabs, cheesesteak egg rolls, french onion dumplings. Dumpling were great taste wise but just looked gross, shrimp looked and tasted gross, chicken was delicious but the portion was tiny, and nothing wrong w the egg rolls. We sat upstairs and for some reason there was an odd smell, like an indoor swimming pool or something. Overall weird experience.

I love everything about this restaurant. I am a frequent customer and love the rooftop atmosphere. Everyone has always been so super nice upon arrival i.e. host and waiters
This Saturday night was a little different. Upon arriving to the restaurant I waited about 10 minutes to be shown to my seat even though I had a reservation and then when it was time to go to my seat the host asked me pretty much if I knew where I was going in a very unfriendly tone. Which I replied yes and headed to seat myself and my guest.
The waiter that we had, was another just as bad. I’m not sure what his name was but he’s pretty much going bald. This guy was absolutely rude and unaccommodating. I certainly felt unwelcome as soon as I sat down and was greeted another 10 mins later with a “what’s up” by him. The food was super delayed it’s OK them forever to come and get our drink orders and I said down without water for quite some time as we waited more time to even place the order. If this is the level of service you guys offer then I probably won’t be coming back to your restaurant. Respectfully.

My apologies for choppy message I’m currently in the car driving but didn’t want to get this out when I received this email regarding the review.
