We ate at le continental well, quite frankly, because we watch Anthony Bourdain. The food lived up to it's reputation. I had the goat cheese salad, shrimp cocktail and the shrimp flambé. All of them were the best dishes I've had in Quebec. The waiters wine choice for me was also correct-it was one f the best wines I've had.... More

This was probably the best meal I ever ate in a restaurant. I had the Flambe mustard sirloin steak which was out of this world. The Ceasar salad was absolutely delicious and what made it more enjoyable was watching our server prepare it right at our table. I tried a little of everyone's meal (party of 6), and they were...

Classic French Restaurant. Outstanding menu, food, and service. We had the Chateaubriand for two; LARGE portion, sauce was to die for. Short walk from the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac. Well worth a visit!

One of he finest dining experiences we've had in years. Equal to many fine dining places we've enjoyed in Paris and New York. Pricey, but we didn't mind because it was that good. Service was impeccable -- captain was always nearby although not intrusive. Great wine list. The lamb was prepared to perfection with a wonderful carre de cerf sauce.... More

Restaurant is on the pricey side; however the presentation and quality of food and the experience of the table-side flambé is worth it! If you go, be sure to order on of the flambé entrees or desserts. I had the tenderloin fillet and it was a generous portion which was cooked to perfection flambé style with a of delicious gravy....

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful dining experience at Le Continental. From the onset, you are greeted at the door and have the option of checking in your coat which is helpful given the chilly weather. We opted for the table d'hote for $54 pp which included an entree, soup, main, dessert and coffee each. My snow crabs were... More
