Wonderful evening! Highlight of our trip. Caesar salad and flambé table side made a truly memorable experience. Our waiter worked very hard preparing several meals through the evening. Makes you wonder what the chef does??😊 Highly recommend!

We chose this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and the staff had recommended it to us. So happy we went. Although our first impression was that it might be a bit stuffy, we were pleasantly surprised by the fun we had with the servers. There was a large selection of wines by the glass, necesary when everyone is ordering different entrees! I had the Dover Sole and it was fantastic! One of the best I've eaten. There are many patrons ordering tableside-prepared meals and they usually involve a flambe method of cooking. Very fun to watch. The servers here sure earn their tips! Although there was a large selection of desserts, we were too full from the delicious dinner. A great, warm, cozy place not to be missed in Quebec!

Absolutely one of the most elegant restaurants in Quebec City. This is our third time visiting this restaurant and is my favorite. I love the flambe filet mignon and the dover sole. Wonderful wine list. The service is perfect. Expect a perfect evening and you will not be disappointed.

We were visiting for an overnight on cruise ship. A friend recommended. It was absolutely the best dining experience! Can't remember the last time we enjoyed a meal so much. Super food, great service, in beautiful Old Town Quebec. Old style, they cooked the food by your table. Nothing bad about it. Our waiter/chef was Sebastian and he was fantastic! For 4 ppl it was about
$500 U.S. We drank wine, ate the best food, had a wonderful experience...worth EVERY penny!

You can't do much better. Great classic food. Great service. Beautiful room. If you can, go for the various flambé dishes. The Poire Pernod is unusual and delicious. Understandably pricey, but definitely worth it.

Went here on our last night in Quebec. It was a block from the apartment we rented, so it was just a quick walk. The food was amazing! I don't review many places, but I had to for this place. I ordered the Filet and it was cooked perfectly and so delicious! Also tried the whiskey shrimp, also very good. But the best part was dessert. We order the St Honoré (pie/cake?). Best dessert we had the whole trip! I need to find a bakery here in Chicago because it was just so good! If I find myself in Quebec again I will definitely be stopping back!

We waited very long for our entrée -The wait staff and manager were indifferent to our queries. The waiter appeared too occupied preparing meals at the tables of other guests to pay attention to us, and, frankly, he was rather snooty.

We so enjoyed our dinner at Restaurant Le Continental. The service could not have been more attentive and the food was excellent. It was a special celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary, and it was just a perfect evening. Thank you! Next time we are in Quebec, we will be back!

We had a great meal here starting with warm foie gras with roasted figs and port sauce.
The best foie gras dish ever, even better than Hotel Crillion, Paris
Followed by duck l'orange Flambe...delicious!!
The waiter was engaging and knowledgeable and fun.
All in all a great place to DINE!

Was our first time there for all 3 of us. Waiter seemed impatient with us whe we asked questions. We ordered salad which we did not receive until after the entree came when we reminded him that we had ordered the salad. Waiter was unfriendly . Food was good but not fabulous which we expected for the price!

We had high expectations for this restaurant and it disappointed. The onion soup was average in taste as was the shrimp Newberg. We make better at home! The salad with goat cheese was very good. The maple sugar pie was outstanding. Service was spotty. It started out as good but our waiter disappeared near the end of the meal. We waited at least 10 minutes for the deliverance of our check. We will not return.

On the event of both a birthday and a 10th anniversary, this classic French, while in the busy and somewhat "touristy" part of Quebec City, filled the bill very nicely for a special occasion. Dressing up is still fun, and this is one restaurant where it is not yet out of place. The atmosphere, very congenial French/English waiter and staff, excellent table- side food preparation, both tasty and to order, were all well set. As far as price, a bit pricey perhaps, but a good value not necessarily found at some of its trendy "New Canadien" competitors...

Everything was perfect. We really enjoyed the traditional tableside service. I was very impressed by our server Alain who was able to cook our steaks perfectly tableside and serve other tables. The restaurant has wonderful ambiance and is a must when visiting Quèbec. It is worth every penny.

The entire staff were so very professional and could not do enough for you. They were so attentive that they refilled your wine glasses continuously. They even brought a selection of reader glasses when one of us had left their eye glasses behind! That is what I call fantastic customer service.

A real "trip down Memory Lane." Waiters in white dinner jackets and bow ties. (But, friendly and accommodating.)
Delicious food, much of which is prepared table side. Quite a show!
Would highly recommend this nice, warmly appointed restaurant.

My wife and I had previously been to this restaurant, separately, when we were in our teens, in the 1960's. The restaurant has been there since 1956. Our meal was the best meal I have ever had. This is an old style, french white glove service restaurant. A lot is prepared table side. We had Caesar salad, duck l'orange and Crepes Suzette, all prepared tableside. The restaurant is not cheap, but worth every penny.

My father was instrumental in helping the original owner to start this business. I have been going there since I was a young child, and I am now soon to be 70 years old, so that has to tell you something. Still one of the best restaurant in Quebec City and they specialize in "flambes" and their "Canard a l'orange" is to die for... but please do stay alive.

My husband and I went for our 30th anniversary. We could not have been happier with our choice. The ambience was beautiful and the waitstaff could not do enough for us. They did not know it was a special occasion for us. The food was delicious , but a bit overpriced, and we come from New York, so that's saying a lot. All in all I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.
