no complaints about the food and the service. the prices are somewhat high, however if the quality and taste is very good, my wife and I are willing to pay for it.

I've fallen in love with the dish I order, and I can't seem to change this. Never less, I am in love with Continental Treat, and it is by far my favorite restaurant I've... More

My family and I have eaten at Continental Treat several times. It is always a pleasant experience. This time we went for my husband's birthday. The steaks were incredibly tender and the Wiener schnitzel crisp and tasty as usual. I love the lemon mousse cake for dessert. We have never been disappointed.

We found this place by accident, but have enjoyed it a number of times since then. The menu is broad enough to suit most tastes. The presentation is nicely done, the food is delicious and is served piping hot. I also want to say that the service has been above average every time I've been there. It's not inexpensive, but...

We had eaten here before - about 2 years ago and had forgotten just how good and comfortable the restaurant is. There were 6 of us and the service was great; we never felt rushed nor did we ever feel forgotten. My parents both went with the special - choice of soup, then a pork chop with all the fixings....
