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.

What was prepared at our tables was surpurb. What came from the kitchen was not. The side plate of potatoes and vegetables were cold. Wine was relatively priced to other restaurants. The service and attention was a real treat and will be remembered as a special night. Crepe suzette is IMO the best dessert item on the menu. The food quality may be comparable to other establishments but the servi e and expérience à not compete anywhere.

What an experience! The wine list was great, we had two bottles of Chateau Gaillard Bordeaux which complimented the meal nicely. Three of us had steak, one had the lamb - all delicious. The cherries jubilee was also very good. The best part of the dining was the geridon service at the table. It was amazing having the food prepared right there no smoke, fumes, mess etc. Wait staff was incredible.

We wanted to do a night out experiencing the amazing food that Quebec City old town has to offer and was not disappointed. Fro. The time we walked in the services was friend,y and they did not rush you at all. Our table was ready at arrival and we could dine as long as we wanted. We had multiple servers all very knowledgeable on the food and wine/cocktails they offer. Staff was very friendly and they want you to enjoy your experience.

This was the best food and cocktails we had in Quebec City although pricey, it was well worth it. We will go back anytime and very much worth experiencing if you are in town.
The one thing I would call out is the dress code says casual, but most people we saw were dressed with business attire or better.

One of our best dining experiences ever! We came here because we saw an episode of Anthony Bourdain where he ate at this restaurant. It really was amazing, French cooking at its finest! We started with Ceasar salad for two and then the Filet Mignon was out of this world as was the Langoustine Newburg! Oh and we ended with Cherries Jubilee, which was a delicious sweet treat. If you are ever in Quebec City you must dine here!

We were here 20 years ago for our wedding dinner after eloping to Quebec. It was worth the wait! Truly a trip down memory lane as virtually nothing has changed! Which is a good thing! Le Continental is an institution and an icon that screams “old school” and “old world” charm!! Service is professional and extremely proficient with just the right touch of aloofness that totally captures the quintessential French experience! If we are still married and still able, we will be back to celebrate our 40th...if not sooner! Enjoy!

I along with my partner learned a valuable lesson when traveling to Old Quebec City. If you are a foodie and want to to experience fine French dinning cuisine you need to book your reservation the moment you arrive in the city. Because these places fill up quick! Lucky for us we were able to book a late night table at the renowned Le Continental - a favourite of the late Anthoney Bourdain. And one of the main reasons that we had to come to Quebec City. To put it simply the food was magnificent.

We came to know Le Continental from watching Anthony Bourdain's Québec episode. He gave the restaurant a rave review and without question, they deserve it. We had wanted a very special meal, because we had travelled from Vancouver to Québec to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the ambience was lovely and relaxed. My husband started with the Lobster Bisque and I enjoyed the Minestrone. Both were the perfect "amuse bouche" for what was to come. For our mains, we had two of their signature flambé dishes, both prepared expertly, table-side. Our server, Matthieu, was even sweet enough to accommodate my many questions about his technique. My husband had the Mustard Sirloin Steak and I was treated to the Filet Mignon en BoÎte. It is no exaggeration to say that these were probably the best steaks we have ever eaten and both of us were born in Alberta! For dessert, we had the exquisite Crèpes Suzette, again prepared at the table by our lovely waiter. Every mouthful of our meal was perfect and the entire experience was at a superlative level. Should we ever be fortunate enough to find ourselves in Québec City again, Le Continental will be a MUST. Bravo Bravo Bravo!
