    Told (host-2X and waiter 1X) is a birthday for my husband. Sad that they didn’t said anything and told waiter again when we pay the bill and he said said Oh! Happy birthday. Guess they don’t do anything special for the birthday man.☹️sad. They why even bother ask what the occasion for. The only dish which was the Caesar salad for CAD$36/2 person was way over charge!!! And nothing special about it. For the price u pay go somewhere else . I gave overall four star cos if the lady taking your coat was super sweet and the atmosphere was nice but seated too closed to each party I won’t recommend or go back again.

    Food was surprisingly mediocre. It’s wonderful how they flame everything which creates a fun ambience, but the quality of the food was lacking. We had the duck a la orange which is expectedly, a sweet dish. Our duck was swimming in volumes of pure sugar. The service was OK until we asked for the bill. It took 15 minutes to get the bill after a second request, a bit too long in my opinion. Clearly, our server completely forgot, yet made no apology. With the amazing food in Quebec city, I would avoid this overly high rated restaurant.

    Giving overall 1 star because you can have meals just as good or even better in QC (try Champlain or Aux Anciens Canadiens) without having to subjecting yourself to the worst customer service experience you'll ever encounter. In no other restaurants, lower or upper-scale, I've been too have I experienced so much attitude from the staff. They were beyond rude and condescending. I called to simply ask if I can push back my reservation and they instantly responded by saying I need to respect the hours of the restaurant as they want everyone to have the full 2hrs window - could not have just said no sorry we can't do that like any other restaurant? While serving, one waiter in particular kept rushing us to finish out meal when there were still 45mins left in our window - I thought they wanted everyone to have the full 2hrs? Also saw that same waiter do an eyeroll when my brother called him after he had just left our table because he forgot to ask for something. I can try to understand that can be inconveniently annoying, but in an upscale restaurant like this, that's really not acceptable. My mom also doesn't speak English well and when she tried to talk to him he just did not respond to her or even try to make conversation. Overall, just don't come here, the service is really not worth anything else.

    So dish was not clean and I point out to the server, I was expecting him to change the dish, but he just WIPED it with a very unpleasant attitude. The dishes tasted very weird, orange duck is way tooo sweet, and the appearance was very unappetizing. The daily special steak with foie gras had absolutely no flavor, the foie gras was not hot enough so it’s really greasy. Last but now least, we had a French fries side dish, it looks like it been sitting on the plate for days. The meal including tips was 280, what a waste.

    When we sat down at our given table our server informed us that the only option on the menu was the tasting menu. This was not what we had wanted but went along with it. That said, the food was quite good although the meal along with wine parings was quite expensive.

    Anthony Bourdain was right. Le Continental serves up un-ironic and classic cuisine in a setting some may consider ‘nostalgia a la tourist’ but is actually an example of proper dining of days gone by. Yes, there are tourists. Yes, the staff is all male. Yes, an air of pretentiousness exists. However, put your phone away and you will find a dignified appreciation for the art of cooking classic meals—something that will never go out of style.
