Restaurant Le Continental Ratings and Reviews
Le Continental was the perfect spot for a Friday night date in the old city! The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. We chose the prix fixe which was very reasonable $64 Canadian for four courses), had excellent options, and full portion sizes. I was expecting much smaller plates. Their extensive wine list was the icing on the cake. We plan to be back again next year when we are in town.
What a special dinner! We enjoyed every single bite and the table-side preparation was so incredibly unique and special! The wait staff did everything and prepared our food just perfectly! It was a fun experience! The caesar salad and the filet mignon were the favorites of the table! The service was outstanding and the food was just as wonderful! I can't wait to return! I would go to Quebec City just to dine here!
On a very busy night during Winter Carnival, our group was seated timely. Although our waiter was balancing multiple tables with flambé requests, he was able to keep up with our requests and was particularly personable when things slowed down to a more reasonable pace.
Everyone was very pleased with the variety of meals we had from shrimp scampi to filet. Watching the filet and crêpes suzette prepared flambé style at the table is a fantastic experience!
I appreciated the effort at preparing the filet mignon medium well. Je vous adresse mes plus vifs remerciements.
My wife and I were in Quebec City for 4 days and had great meals everywhere we went. Restaurant Le Continental was, however, the best. The ambiance hits you as you walk in as do the marvelous smells from the table side cooking. We had escargot and foils grois for appetizers followed by the filet and mustard sirloin for dinner. All were fantastic. The service is impeccable and we will return here on our next visit.
We were in Quebec to celebrate an anniversary and chose this restaurant to culminate the trip. The food and presentation was amazing but the service took it over the top. Our waiter asked about the reason for our visit and went out of his way to ensure the evening was wonderful. He made my wife feel extra special and even if everything else was bad, that would have made the evening. On top of the amazing food that we got, the evening was fantastic.
When we have the opportunity to return to Quebec, we will spend and evening here and hopefully get the same waiter.
If you want a special experience, this is the place to go.
Nous avons adoré notre soirée au Continental et la nourriture était excellente. Le seul bémol, je trouvais l'odeur de cuisson un peu intense vers la fin de la soirée (chateaubriand et steak cuit aux tables). Probablement parce que nous avions moins faim à ce moment !!!
Nous en étions à notre première visite au Continental qui est fonctionnel depuis 1956!. Ce fut une expérience inoubliable. De l'accueil au départ le personnel est toujours à l'affût de ses clients. Le service est impeccable et la nourriture cuite à point. La bisque de homard au cognac est sublime ainsi que les fruits de mer. La prochaine fois ce sera les grillades ( filet mignon,canard à l'orange, etc) cuites aux tables qui semble être très populaire à cet endroit. Réservation de mise. Service de valet pour votre voiture.
Pour une soirée inoubliable ou un repas entre amis vous ne regretterez pas votre choix.
We were in Quebec City and the Continental had been recommended to us on a previous visit so we decided to visit this restaurant once again. We celebrated our granddaughter's Birthday and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. They were able to accommodate us when we were a little late. Many thanks
Exceptional restaurant in all respects. This is a classic fine French restaurant, impeccable service and wonderful food. My wife and I both had seafood dishes which were excellent and the presentation was beautiful (e.g., caviar on top of seared scallops). Many dishes are prepared tableside: salads and dressings; flambé steaks, flambé desserts. This is a perfect special occasion place.
Le Continental is quite "traditional", with all the best connotations of that word. The dishes are classics, so well-prepared that one realizes why they have endured as favorites for so many years. The service is formal without being pretentious. The room is also of traditional decor, but very comfortable, with a warm feeling. This is a special place, preserving all that is best of old world fine dining.
Recently ate at this restaurant while in Quebec for Christmas. It was highly recommended and rightfully so. The food was delicious and the staff was attentive and friendly. My only complaint was even though I'm a true believer of " you get what you pay for" I thought the prices were a bit steep. My wife's Dover Sole though delicious was a bit pricey being north of $60. I would recommend for a special occasion but you should know that you will be paying a premium.
My husband and I have been coming to Quebec City in December, for 13 years. Our holiday is not complete without going to Le Continental. The steak is outstanding, the table side preparation is spectacular. The rack of lamb is flavorful beyond belief. And the irish coffee, prepared at table side, is the perfect way to finish a perfect meal. Can't wait for next December. The staff is the best.
Fabulous, classic French restaurant in the Old City of Quebec! We would highly recommend this restaurant, if you're looking for that classic French experience. Waiters in white coats preparing the meal at table-side. Foie gras, escargot, chateaubriand, and creme brulee were in the menu - and quite fabulous!
The duck l'orange was over cooked. One of the desserts (ST Honore) was below standards
The service was outstanding in everyway. The dining noise level is perfect for conversation. Actually the duck was too much food for two people. The sauce for the duck was good but its power flavor stayed with you. The appetizer was creative and delicious.
The Continental remains the premier restaurant in Quebec city. We make a reservation to dine there whenever we visit Quebec city and it always retains the highest standards that have made it famous for 60 years. This time we had the pleasure of introducing our daughter, son-in-law, and grandson to its cuisine. Sebastian, our waiter, was very knowledgeable about every dish and good wine pairings. He prepared a Caesar salad table side as well as Duckling a l'Orange and Filet Mignon. My son-in-law said he can never have filet mignon or Caesar salad anywhere else again. My grandson loved the escargots in the shell and I enjoyed an escargot appetizer in puff pastry. In addition we tried the fish of the day and a rack of lamb. All of our dessert choices were memorable. We are already looking forward to another visit!
