My wife and I recently attended Continental Treat to celebrate a special occasion. We had a wonderful evening . The cocktails and wine were great. The escargots in mushroom sauce was a topnotch appetizer while the steak tartar and pork schnitzel were outstanding. We will definitely be back.

I love the European style decor, the old world atmosphere and the unique menu options at Continental Treat Fine Bistro. At 150 choices, the beer selection is unparalleled. On each of my last two visits, we were grateful to have the lovely young Irish girl as our server. She is knowledgeable and knows just when to approach and when to stay away. I find the price point to be a bit high ($20 for salmon on a bagel and c$10 for a glass of wine).

Having orginally immigrated from Germany and grown up eating European cuisine this restaurant is my first choice for dining when staying in Edmonton. My wife and I usually enjoy a meal there each time we visit and have for years.

This is one of our favourite places to go in Edmonton. The food is delicious. We especially enjoy the various soups that they offer (dill pickle, borscht etc.). The menu is diverse and includes some German classics which are delicious.
The location on Whyte Avenue is easy to access. They have complimentary parking behind the restaurant.

My $50 filet was ordered m/r was delivered medium to medium well. The service was very good but you can for sure find better value for your dollar. Not sure why all the 5 star ratings but I give it 3 and if the service wasn't excellent which it was I would give this establishment a 2 star
Over the years we have been to the Conti ...
Over the years we have been to the Continental Treat restaurant a few times. A few things have changed.
The not so good:
First the food menu has downsized dramatically. The sign on the window by the door says, "Adults only after 4:00 PM", yet we arrived on a Monday at 6:45 PM to two tables that had children under 3 years of age (still in high chairs) that were still there at least 45 - 1 hour after we arrived. We wanted a nice quiet 35th anniversary supper, yet, we could barely hear each other over the noise of the other tables and squealing child. We had a party of 6 that went a few weeks ago that told us the food is not as tasty as it was a couple of years ago, my husband and I now agree with them. Disappointed to see one of the servers wearing jeans, female customer wearing flip flops (like beach flip flops). There are so few place to go out to for an evening that requires at least business attire... Disappointing this is being lost.
The good portion:
The Pickle soup is STILL delicious.
Our server was great.
Has some different meals.
Likely will not return and will try new restaurants.

That dill pickle soup was great, not overpowering dill. Escargot was different than the usual garlic butter variety, worth a try. None of us could finish our entrees as we found each dish to be quite rich with lots of it too.

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.

ABSOLUTLEY THE BEST DINING SPOT ON WHYTE AVE IN EDMONTON FOOD IS FANTASTIC THE SERVICE IS THE BEST FAMILY OWNED AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED THE BEST STEAK TARTA ANY WHERE IN THE WORLD A REAL GEM OF A RESTAURANT TRY IT YOU WILL FALL IN LOVE WITH EVERYTHING THEY HAVE TO OFFER
Pickle soup was interesting and pleasant ...
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
