Continental Treat Fine Bistro Ratings and Reviews

The restaurant was very busy and very noisy. Felt crowded. The wine list was very good. The pickle soup was tasty albeit luke-warm. The main course was adequate although i thought that other dishes might have been better selections.
Service was very good.

Introduced friends from out of town to Continental Treat, everyone enjoyed the meal and ambience. Mushroom and sauerkraut pyrogies were excellent as appetizers. Rainbow trout and wienerschnitzle were excellent entres, the duck leg a bit overcooked and dry. Everyone had the apple strudel for dessert, very nice finish

The Continental Treat is my "go-to" restaurant for special occasions. I try to avoid weekends because the restaurant is usually full and therefore noisy. On this occasion it was Wednesday and noise was not an issue. The food is always exceptional and the service prompt and friendly. Parking can be difficult but free street parking a couple of blocks away is usually possible.

Pickle soup was interesting and pleasant, heard about it so wanted to try it. Schnitzel was good, the crumb was delicate it was well cooked, however, I would have liked to taste some subtle herb in the crumb or something, it was quite plain. The table bread was disappointing, some store bought variety it seems, slightly stale. I would have liked to see a fresh homemade rye or something of that ilk. The butter was served in airplane plastic single serve portions. The prices of the eye fillet were outrageous we all thought. The wines were as well quite over priced for the common garden variety. The waitress kept reaching in front of me and over my head. My niece was ill that night with some sort of food poisoning she thinks, we are not sure if from here or perhaps the frozen yogurt place down the street? All in all, I would not go back, the menu is not something I could not achieve myself at home..

This is a favourite place to come with a friend or friends. Even though it's a bit expensive it is the place to enjoy excellent food and drink. I always leave feeling like we were welcome, appreciated and even a little fussed over.

Excellent European cuisine. Nice lunch menu. Lots to choose from. Try the dill pickle soup. You will not be disappointed! Goulash was tasty. Mushroom and cabbage perogies great! Great selection of desserts as well. Will definitely come back to try their dinner menu.

All food items had excellent flavour, very well prepared and presented. The beer and wine lists are excellent. The servers were very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu. This was probably about my 12th time at this restaurant and everything about it is very consistent.

Was a wonderful evening! They new it was a special occasion and did everything they could to make it just that, special!
From the moment we walked in too the time we walked out, we were served with a smile. The server who helped us was vary friendly but seamed to had just work a 8hour shift and seemed a little run down but we could tell she still tried to make our experience a moment to remember.
Food was very good but could use a touch more seasoning to truly make an immaculate meal. Plating was rustic and the garnishes seamed to love being all over the rimes of the plate. Above all else it had a certain je ne sais que about it that really made it feel like worm home cooking, especially if you have a very European grandmother.
Very much enjoyed my experience and would be very happy to go again

Always enjoy this restaurant. It is our to go to restaurant when don't want to cook at home. For those craving Eastern European dishes this is the real deal as authentic as you can get. Difficult to get a table on weekends so book early. The prices are reasonable, the servings are large. even if i can't get a table i phone and get the meal to go. Also the soups are really authentic and I will do frozen or takeout. This restaurant is addictive.

Mom and I have come a coupel of times a month for years. Staff is always cheery and friendly and extrememly accomadating. The food is delicious, a variety and of decent proportions. Price is not cheap but average for a fine restaurant, not over priced. We enjoy the ambiance of a european restaurant and the people watching as it is situated overlooking whyte ave. I would reccommend this restaurant and I have to everyone.

As usual, Continental Treat was outstanding. The food is second to none (dill pickle soup is to die for), and the schnitzel is always great. The service was prompt and friendly and the ambience is classy yet casual. One of the few restaurants left in town that still has an ambiance that suggests a special evening out. Always a favorite of mine!

Consistently excellent food and service. We have been going to Continental Treat for years and have never had a bad experience. Good variety of food and wine. Weekends you usually need a reservation to get a table.

Tasty European food. The pickle soup is a top pick for both my boyfriend and I to start with. The stroganoff was also amazing! Portions are quite large, therefore giving us lunch the next day as well. The selection of European beer was a delight to my boyfriend. The wine list for single glasses is somewhat small but they did have variety and I was able to find a new and very tasty white wine to celebrate our occasion with.

We are regular patrons at this restaurant. We had been away for six months and were looking forward to our meal here.
It was disappointing to find that the veal schnitzel was no longer on the menu, replaced by pork schnitzel. The pork was good but we much prefer the veal. Hopefully the restaurant will bring back the veal in the near future.
We go to Continental Treat specifically because we like the veal and this restaurant was one of the few to offer veal.
We have been regular customers for many, many years and have introduced numerous friends to Continetnal Treat over that time.
BRING BACK THE VEAL SCHNITZEK!!!
