Modern European
With a stunningly warm and inviting atmosphere reminiscent of a family-run restaurant in Tuscany or Bordeaux, Continental Treat Fine Bistro in Edmonton serves charming continental cuisine. The traditional cheese and potato stuffed pierogis with sour cream and the vegetable-laden red barszcz soup make excellent starter dishes. Some of Continental Treat Fine Bistro's specialty entrée dishes include the marinated pork chop Munich style with smoked sausage and mushrooms in a rich pearl onion sauce, the chicken stroganoff in a creamy tomato sauce with spaetzle, sour cream and diced pickles, the famous Hungarian goulash with tender beef cubes stewed in a rich and fragrant paprika sauce and the rainbow trout with seasoned with lemon, dill and capers, pan fried until crisp and golden. Continental Treat Fine Bistro also serves an excellent array of beers and wines from across the globe; the perfect accompaniment to the hearty and rustic fare.

    Good room. Pleasant service. They continue to have interesting presentations but the quality of the main courses seems to have been dumbed down with overpowering sauces and without full slices of meat. Still enjoyable but not what it has been for years.

    We enjoyed the ambience, including the music. Service was excellent. The only thing that detracted from our experience was that though the meat in the goulash was tender and the spicing was good, the dish was much too salty.

    I was disappointed in the server and how she provided almost nothing to my son for his birthday. Continental treat used to provide just a month ago a big piece of cake as a part of the celebration. We are regulars at continental treat and he should have received something more than a tiny little sliver I mean it was very very small token strudel for his birthday.

    The whole menu is gluten free so the restaurant was the perfect choice for our group of five as one of us has celiac disease. Pickle soup is terrific. Generous portion of schnitzel but meat a little tough to cut. Substituting spaetzle for potatoes is only a $1 surcharge. Alsace Riesling was delicious and reasonably priced.

    Continental Treat Fine BistroResponded on September 9, 2022Sffoodie, thank you for taking the time out to provide us with a review. Gluten free cuisine has provided us with the fantastic opportunity of pairing refined food with our signature service to serve those who have trouble finding restaurants that suit their diet. Thank you as well for letting us know where we may be falling a bit behind - we will make sure this feedback is used to improve our processes! Warmest regards, Sylvester and Borowka family

    Have eaten there for years. The dill pickle soup have been a favour, but this time the soup was lacking flavour. Was interested in the cabbage rolls but it was served with red cabbage which I thought was a weird side. The pork schnitzel was a bit on the dried side. Hopefully this is not indication of things to come. Service was great.

    Continental Treat Fine BistroResponded on September 9, 2022Hello Ann, thank you so much for your honest review. We value our guests critique of our food and provide our kitchen team with this valuable feedback - our pickled salad is our standard side provided with our dishes but can always be substituted for a salad or soup if you'd prefer. We can assure you that we strive not only to maintain standards but elevate them - it's through reviews like this that help us set and maintain the bar. Thank you, Sylvester and Borowka family

    Too much paprika in the Hungarian goulash; more than I remember from last time there. Otherwise, my wife's pork was fine. But. This new patio destroys 90% of the parking. Where do we park now? And will Continental pay for it?

    Continental Treat Fine BistroResponded on September 9, 2022Hello John, thank you for taking the time to review our third-generation family bistro - we value our guests reviews on our food and will pass this along to our chef's team to keep in mind. As for parking, we've added an outdoor dining space for our patrons that enjoy the sun and fresh air while sacrificing a number of parking spots - keep in mind that parking on Whyte avenue is free after 6 PM and all day Saturday. Regards and hope to see you again soon, Sylvester and Borowka family

    We enjoyed our evening out to Continental Treat. The food and atomosphere were great. We were not rushed despite there bring people waiting to get in, surprising for a Tuesdsy evening. The servings were large snd very tasty. The knly thing I did not like was the Gluten Free beer. They need to find a better option and there are some out there. Will definitely go back there again.

    First time trying this restaurant, and it did not disappoint! I am celiac and being able to eat whatever I wanted was the best feeling! The homemade gluten free perogies were phenomenal! And the gluten free schnitzel & spaetzle was also fantastic! We had a great server who was very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be back 😊

    Had not been in a while and found the food not as tasty as in the past. The soup was Luke warm. The Munich pork chop had way to much heavy cream sauce that overpowered the dish. It literally covered almost everything on my plate. I have ordered this many times and loved it, but this time it was not good and I could not eat it. Traded with my husband. Was also very disappointed in the dessert. The pastry on the apple strudel tasted raw, no flavour at all, a soggy mess. The filling was sticky and almost rubbery, not sure what they used to thicken it. I understand that they are gluten free but if you can’t make a dessert taste good, you should not serve it. There may be better desserts but this was not one of them. FYI, both there online menu and the QR code menu in the restaurant are not updated so the prices and offerings are not accurate, they said those are precovid. In this day and age there is no excuse for not updating your menu. Service was good. We will not be back.

    It took a long time for us to receive our orders despite the restaurant not being overly busy. The bread we received after ordering was buttered with very garlicky butter which neither of us liked and the bread became very gummy in our mouths. Once we received our meals, I was surprised to see how small my husband's portion of veal schnitzel was. Mine was only slightly bigger. As the only vegetables offered with the meal are all pickled and he doesn't eat pickled foods, I ended up giving my husband all of my mashed potatoes plus one third of my schnitzel and I took his vegetables. Normally, this would have been fine except the cucumbers and beets were both very soft almost to the point of being mushy. I expect they had been around for a few days as they completely lost their crunch. The wine by the glass was reasonably priced, but some of the bottled beers are way too high at $18 and higher. Service was good and the restaurant was not too loud to talk at a comfortable level.

    As always, the food and service are second to none. However, I am surprised and disappointed that such a fine bistro provides cheap (and small) paper napkins. What happened to the cloth napkins? Also, what happened to the white tablecloths? Again, this is a fine bistro, not a fast food joint. The atmosphere and sense of value would be greatly improved if the dining experience included proper cloth napkins and white tablecloths on each table. Consequently, a 5/5 is downgraded to a 4/5.
