Was highly recommended and did not disappoint. Service was impressive: old style class and attention to every detail. Sirloin prepared at our table, scallops cooked just right and crepes Suzette to finish. Wished we lived here so could partake more often!

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!

We went for a birthday dinner and really enjoyed our experience. The ambience in the restaurant was just what we wanted. It was cozy, but not tight. Our waiter was impeccable, a real professional. The food was excellent - for the most part. The sides that came with our meals - particularly the mashed potatoes could definitely have been warmer. We also ordered an extra side of potatoes and that was much warmer than what came with the meal.
The waiters preparing food at the table was fun and added to our experience. If you are heading to Quebec City, I would recommend Le Continental.

The escargot were very good. House wine was ok. My cocktail was very good. Making Caesar salad at the table was a joke, basically putting their house dressing in a bowl and mixing in lettuce like it was a big deal. Main courses were acceptable but not noteworthy. Cheesecake not very good. Irish coffee was super good way to end meal on a high point.

steaks are good. The "show" ....cooking table side was fun. The waiter , like everything else was old school. pleasant enough. Hate the mandatory white dinner jackets, they just look cheap.

My husband enjoyed his meal more than I did . I prefer steak done with simple rub or just salt and pepper. Don't love gravy on my fillet. Vegetables were excellent. nice variety and nicely done. Crisp but still cooked. Squash and mashed potatoes both very good. Desserts were fine, not special but certainly good.

Overall, a pretty good old school experience
