Restaurant Le Continental Ratings and Reviews

Outstanding in every way! The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Our servers were very attentive and knowledgeable about our food. They cook your steaks at your table. The snow crab dish was huge and fabulous. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We were in shorts after a long journey to get there and they told us that was fine and we should not worry about our attire. We were treated like kings and queens! Just wish we had this restaurant where we live...My new favorite restaurant of all time!

This was my first visit to Restaurant Continental; I had read a bunch of reviews and some suggested it was dated and stuffy and no longer earning its reputation. That was not our party's experience at all; we all thought it was terrific. Two of us split the tableside orange duck preparation, one had the tableside filet preparation, and one rack of venison. The rack of venison was just fine, but the tableside preparations were ranked by our party as among the best meals they had ever had. It takes some skill to cook a filet to a perfect medium rare over a tableside flame while attending to similar preparations at other tables, but our waiter did it and made it look easy. The duck is partially cooked before going into the tableside prep, but still with the sauce and served piping hot at the table it was outstanding. He also made an Irish coffee with a lot of pizzazz. Everyone was friendly and you could tell it is a place where people return time and again and the staff knows the regulars. The only downside on ambiance is that you have some tourists coming in in shorts and tshirts which just looks silly in a place where everyone on the staff is in a coat and tie. There are a lot of places that pretend to be classic but are just expensive; this place is expensive but in our experience it was definitely a classic.

A dining experience to rival the best of old style dining when dining out was elegant, exciting (extraordinary flambé), and service was thoughtful, personal, and professional. The best of the best in Quebec where only the exceptional survive! Whether speaking French or English the translation equals an experience unrivaled in any language.

We were visiting Quebec City and the restraunt was just across the street. What a lovely surprise! We had our 13 yr old granddaughter with us. They flambé d her dinner and she was enthralled. The food was excellent, the service, impeccable ! Would highly recommend this restraunt.

Amazing atmosphere. Delicious food. Impeccable service. Would recommend to everyone visiting Quebec and we will definitely come back on our next trip here.
Location - The location was conveniently close to our hotel (Le Chateau Frontenac) - a 5 minute walk. Food - The freshly made caesars salad and flambé peppered steak made table side were great. As was the rack of Lamb and Maple Creme Brûlée . Service - The service was great; it feels personalized. Please note: The table side service takes away from privacy and intimacy. We would go again.
Great meal, great service

A true dining experience. We were sat in a lovely dining room and treated like royalty. We started with the Caesar salad that is prepared table side. It was delicious. We then split the duck, which is also prepared table side. Everything was top elegance from start to finish.
High End Restaurant in Quebec City
My wife and I visited Quebec City for the first time recently. It's a beautiful city with a rich history. For our visit knowing it would be a busy weekend, I made reservations at a couple of restaurants in advance. Restaurant Le Continental was our choice for Saturday night. Restaurant Le Continental is a very nice restaurant with a diverse menu and excellent service. They also have a very nice selection of wines to choose from. There is a section of the menu that is prepared Flambe style - prepared and cooked at your table. I ordered a filet and my wife ordered a shrimp dish. We also enjoyed an appetizer as well as desert. Everything about our meal was fantastic. The restaurant is decorated in a more formal style - you can dress up for the night or dress more casually. If you're looking for a more formal dining environment with a high level of service, this is the restaurant for you. It's also a favorite with the local residents.

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
Perfect Christmas Eve in old Quebec . Great service wonderful ambience . Staff attentive and funny . Was beautiful evening
