Total Enjoyment
In the gourmet world of Le Continental, traditional cuisine is classical. Enjoy the perfect service, the great flambéed dishes that pay tribute to the delicious French cuisine. The Continental's wine cellar is most impressive with its board of famous selection of French, Italian and American wines. It offers a choice of more than five thousand bottles, four hundred different varieties from Grands Crus classés to affordable prices.

Everything was terrific unless you want a single malt to end the evening. Quebec City is notorious for its "pours." The $25. pour barely coveted the bottom of the glass and that's no exaggeration.

excellent service and atmosphere. They do a lot of table side prep...from salads to deserts. For some, this apparently is video worthy. Carpaccio app was good, not exceptional. The Venison (they call it deer on menu) was well prepared. Wife has chicken which was good. wine was reasonably priced as were mixed drinks and beer. short walk from many hotels and would recommend.

This was probably the most incredible meal of our lives. The steak was finger licking good. We cant wait to return to Quebec and eat here again.

We asked our teenager what she wanted for her birthday...”to fly to Quebec City and eat the canard à l’orange for dinner at Le Continental” This describes how incredible this world famous restaurant really is. It is a bucket list must-go experience that everyone should try at least once. If it’s good enough for Anthony Bourdain to enjoy... it will likely WOW the rest of us. Thank you to all the staff for such an awesome evening.

I have not had the opportunity to eat at Le Continental since December 2015, and it continues to maintain its very high levels of service, quality of ingredients, and wonderful ambiance. Dining here is a highlight of any trip to Quebec City, and I look forward to eating here again on my next visit.

From start to finish, this is a special place to dine in Quebec City! Food was good but service was outstanding.
Kevin was our waiter and he took care of our every need. Beautiful and comfortable dining room especially for the hearing challenged people in our group.
Would highly recommend a trip there for dinner.

The reviews of this restaurant are right on. This is a gem! Ambiance, service, food, and professionalism are what you expect from a fine restaurant. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for. I wore a sport jacket (no tie) and felt it blended in with the ambiance. Other men dressed more casually. We had looked at the menu online beforehand, so we knew what we were going to order. I had the escargots, rack of lamb, asparagus side dish, and a glass of Pinot Grigio. Wife had the fish special, tuna steak, and the roasted cauliflower. We shared the sweet maple pie for dessert because we knew it was a dish unique to Quebec. Waiter and staff were all excellent; we didn't feel rushed. Highlight of our dinners in Quebec City.

I have eaten at the Continental on two occasions. The entire experience is characterized by attentiveness, experience, and artistry of presentation.
The cost reflects the highest level of gastronomic delight.

My wife and I celebrated our birthdays (both on October 13th) at Le Continental, the experience was above and beyond our expectations.

Our server was a craftsman preparing the tableside caesar salad and cooking our steak. The dining room had a wonderful atmosphere and the entire staff made us feel welcome.

This is a uniquely Quebecois experience and one we would highly recommend while staying in the Old City. Thank you Le Continental for helping us celebrate in style!

What can be said that Anthony Bourdain hasn't already said about this place? Charming, old school French cuisine. Everything was cooked to perfection - ambiance was right and the staff were experts at everything they did - not a single shred of unprofessionalism. Le Continental should be a model for what every single restaurant should strive for. This was an engagement dinner for my fiance and I and it went perfectly. We had dinner and dessert and the price point (considering we were coming from the US) was on the low side so I can't complain about cost.

It was our second visit to Quebec City and we love it there. The Le Continental was highly recommended to us so we added it to our list. We stayed at the Frontenac so it was ultra convenient. It was a special birthday so we ordered everything. An excellent bottle of wine, caeser salad, escargot, steak with mustard sauce, veal, crepes suzette and ended with a Remy! Oh I forgot the complimentary birthday cake. Everything was fabulous. Our waiter timed each course perfect and was an expert on his food preparation. We felt he really wanted us to have a great dining experience. if you are wondering why I gave the food only a 4 star it was because although the sauce was wonderful on my husband's steak the meat itself was tuff. This can happen but had to mention it.

Classic. Just classic. Food served table side the way it was done in the years of fine French dining in the 50’s and 60’s. Pierre was our server who clearly knows his craft and is proud of his work. This is a quintessential French dining experience and not to be missed.

Our waiter for 2 successive nights was Pierre, who was delightful and VERY masterful in cooking meat to the ordered doneness, even while doing flambé at even two or three other tables. His Caesar and mustard vinaigrette were both memorable!
I didn’t give a 5 for overall because the area was quite warm, rather noisy and the price high for the size of the meat servings.
