Simply Fabulous! This was so close to our hotel. Exceptional service and food. The Lobster Bisque is one of the best I have had. Would definitely be back.

Best filet mignon!
It was our first visit to Quebec City and we heard great things about le continental. The fois gras was superb. Extensive wine list. Best filet mignon I've ever had in my life. Service was impeccable. Would recommend this wonderful spot to everyone and anyone!! Such a fantastic experience.

I was not impressed by the food in this restaurant. The fish was overcooked. The meat was good but not worth the price. The desserts were just ok. Nevertheless the restaurant is beautiful, the service is very professional and friendly. The restaurant is very close to Chauteau Frontenac.
Traditional French fare
The menu is very traditional as is the preparation. The service is outstanding as is the ambience. Prices are to match. I think $35 for cherries Jubilee for 2 is stretching it.
Felt like an extra in a Gangster movie
The food was decent, and the venue seemed to be a little dated. The service was great, but we likely would not return.
Much like House of Prime Rib in San Francisco, Le Continental was clearly born in a different era of dining. The dishes are near impossible to find anymore (le filet minion en boite, and Dover sole, for examples) and the at-table preparation is fantastic. If you appreciate a different dining experience, and are willing to try a few new things, Le Continental cannot be recommended more highly.

Tops in Quebec City
One of the reasons we visit Quebec City is to have dinner at Le Continental. We go there each time we're in QC and have never been disappointed.
A great restaurant to experience real "Flambee" at each table. Service 5 Stars A place to go in the Old Quebec Don't miss it !
Awesome and exquisite!
We visited Quebec last weekend for Valentine's Day. The meal was outstanding. Our waiter and flambe expert Hugo, was awesome! We had a wonderful experience and plan on dining here again when we return . I can't say enough good about this restaurant. We have dined in other restaurants but they do not compare. Romantic and the best for special occasions!
Flaming at the table
The food cooked at your table is outstanding, besides being fun to watch. Service is fast and the wait staff is able to recommend dishes and wines for every palate.

We had a first rate dining experience. The tableside preparation of Peppercorn steak was amazing. Escargot was perfectly prepared, and presented in the shells. There is no doubt that we will return to this restaurant.

It was excellent, this is the second time me and my spouse dine at the Le Continental and we where not disappointed, we will go back next time we visit Quebec city. We just love it ( the food, the service, the ambiance ).
Great night out
We were visiting from NH and decided to dine here after searching high and low. The service was top notch and food was very good. We dined at our hotel testy ran the night before and we were lessed than impressed and spent far more. We loved this place and enjoyed our meal very much. I had the veal medallions (I think that's what it was called) and my husband had the veal chop and both were amazing. Our waiter was very good, always there when you need something and never let our water or wine get below half a glass. Would definetly recommend this place
Romantic Classic French Resturants
This is a romantic french restaurant with fantastic food and an even better wine list. Our waited for amazing and helped us with any questions we had. I highly recommend anything off of the Flambe portion of the menu - wonderful experience!
Excellent choice for a great experience
While the atmosphere feels a little 70's, I wouldn't change a thing. The service is unparalleled and the food quality is absolute top notch. Drinks were great, dessert was great. This is not a restaurant if you're on a budget. However, if the price is not an issue, it's a highly predictable, enjoyable experience. The table side cooking adds another dimension..
Exceptional in all Respects
Exceptional restaurant. Food is perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Service is polished and professional. If you are looking for a special place to dine in Quebec City - this is one of the best.
A fancy affair
Exceptional wine list. Whole experience was superb with one major exception: They didn't cook my steak properly. Expensive meal, but service is top notch.

Best Dining Experience Ever!
Having food made for you and in front of you is taken to a new, classy level that I've never seen before. Definitely go here! Especially if you're traveling! My fiance and I stopped here for the first night on our trip and treated ourselves. It was very delicious, very romantic, and the perfect start!

Fantastic on every level, food is delicious and well prepared, service is great. Continental is a must in Quebec City.
Great for a special occassion
Great place for a special occasion It is about the presentation here with lots of flambees Expensive but good food with good wine list They should do something about the outside signage as it is a much higher quality than it looks

Over the top
We celebrated our 49th anniversary at Le Continental, our favorite special occasion dining spot. Everything was perfect, just as expected. Very classy; they know what they are doing!
We thoroughly enjoyed this evening and would highly recommend dining here. The service was excellent and the food exceptional.
Great for Couples!
Visited Restaurant Le Continental to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Table side flambe was a first for both of us, and the experience did not disappoint! The wait staff were extraordinarily knowledgeable and attentive, but not overbearing. Food was terrific! Wine list was amazing. If I ever return to Quebec City as a millionaire, I will have to be more adventurous. This time around, I went with with one of the MANY French wines priced under 60$C. Overall this was a wonderful, intimate experience. Prices were much more reasonable than I had anticipated.
The food was fantastic. The restaurant was upscale, but not snobbish. The service was impeccable.

Flambéd main course specials, and Caesar Salad prepared at your table. Truly a gastronomic experience from days past. The servers are expert in what they do and they are always there to cater to your needs. It is so interesting to watch the servers cook the meals at the various tables. You'll find many diners more interested in what the staff is cooking at each table than their dining partners! Of course all this comes at a cost which proves that you get what you pay for. If you are on a moderate income, I would save up for just one meal here. It's that special. I just can't figure out why they don't use olive oil in their salad. :)
This is a very special spot in every regard. The operation is professional to the minutest detail. Service table-side, done magician-like with flames, great aromas and delectable flavors -- just not findable elsewhere. Don't even think about passing Le Continental by! The truest test of the extraordinary quality is to observe the clientele, a large proportion of whom are clearly up-scale local residents. The couple next to us, American tourists, were back for the second night in a row of their weekend stay, bypassing other great dining opportunities close by. The last couple we sent to Le Continental did the same thing! Go figure.

They take good service to another level! Food was very good but a touch overpriced. The restaurant has a great ambiance with classy decor and good piano music playing in the background. Free valet parking was a positive as well. Overall a great experience!
Dinner on Oct 30. Nice venue and ambience. There was nothing wrong with the food (apart from being a little cold), but it was overpriced and uninspiring. The ambience made up for the culinary disappointment, and we had a nice evening.
