Fifth time at this restaurant and always look forward to going back. I had the dover sole but is hard to pass up the steak. Elegant restaurant, impeccable service, and outstanding food. Highly recommend for those special evenings.

The menu is not fancy: steak is emphasized, although other things are available. While they emphasize steak, they deliver. The food was excellent and the experience of having it prepared at the table made it exceptional.

Food was very good and service attentive but I gave service a "fair" grade because staff was a bit aloof. I also witnessed some unhappy guests leave and the staff did not seem to care. They were being quite aloof with them. All the other restaurants or cafes we visited over our four day stay were so much more warm and welcoming to their guests.

Was in Quebec for 50th anniversary and birthday. Le Continental was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is elegant, the service outstanding, the table side preparations fun to enjoy and the food was delicious. We had the Caesar salad, the special filet mignon, and cherries jubilee all prepared table side. It was all wonderful.

We just celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary in Quebec City and dined at Restaurant Le Continental on our last night. I have been an Open Table diner for many years and I have never given any restaurant a five star review, but I am very happy to be giving my first one to this restaurant! From the moment we arrived we were treated like special guests and made to feel like they were doing everything possible to make sure this was a memorable occasion for us. The service was perfect, the food was truly some of the best we've ever had and the ambiance was perfect for celebrating our special anniversary. I would recommend Le Continental to anyone going to Quebec City, and especially anyone who might be celebrating a special occasion. True perfection!

We’ve been here many times and the food is always outstanding. Our waiter/ flambé cook had little personality and was somewhat surly at times. That was disappointing but the food was worth it. Will not let this keep us away. Always eat the at Continental when in Quebec City.

The Continental never disappoints. We usually go once a year to celebrate my husbands birthday, it's our favorite restaurant in Quebec City. It's not just a restaurant, it's a dinning experience. We had the table d'hôte, duck a l'orange for two....so good. What a fantastic meal, the sorbet was also outstanding. Truly a gem in Quebec City!

Le Continental is a classic French experience with elegant surroundings and attentive wait staff in white jacket and black tie. Their specialty is table-side preparation. My wife had halibut and I had veal medallions in mushroom sauce. Both entrees were delicious. They offer a fix price option and chef recommendations (aka specials). We were pleased overall.

Very good experience. However, we would have loved more assistance with the drinks. We happen to buy a bottle of champagne without knowing, thinking it was only a glass we were buying. Turned out to be a waist because both my husband and I do not like strong drinks.

Maybe my expectations were too high for this restaurant. I really wanted to love it, but left feeling underwhelmed. We started with the Caesar salad which was prepared table side and very delicious. Next was the filet which our server was nice enough to prepare between medium rare and medium. I wanted to love the filet, but it was just okay. The red cut was a nice size, but it was slightly tough and I didn’t love the rosemary gravy they poured on top.
I’ve read other reviews where people talk about their amazing servers and can only say that our guy prepared our meal the way we had asked. There was no friendly banter. I think this restaurant may be more about the experience and less about the food.

We found the le Continental many years ago when we visited Quebec City and have gone back every time we visit Quebec. The service is impeccable. The waitor is so attentive. The meal is prepared table side. The meal is so good you have yo take your time and saviour it. No one makes you feel rushed. I had the escargot for appetizer and filet mignon for main course. All I can say is excellent. I always recommend it to anyone going to Quebec City. It is right in the heart of the old city. Just steps from the Frontinac Hotel. Love, love, love it.

Had a wonderful experience at a restaurant with perfect service and excellent food. Went with older family members who have hearing and mobility issues and everyone at the restaurant was so kind and gracious. (Sadly this is not always the case.)My parents and my aunt were thrilled by the experience and so was I.

At first the prices seem high but after seeing your meal cooked table side you appreciate the quality and effort behind the meal. If in Quebec City, I highly recommend Le Continental for some authentic French cuisine.
