It's been years (decades?) since we've been somewhere that offers meals and desserts cooked table-side...and that's pretty cool. White linen and servers in Tux's. The decor while more old school is still contemporary - nicely done - not overstated. Lighting is great - subdued and romantic. The food is excellent - this is a very competent restaurant - definitely recommend!

This is an old-school, white-table-cloth, professional-server restaurant that has excellent food. We had Caesar salad and filet mignon prepared table-side, as well as the veal medallions from the kitchen. The food was excellent. The server cooked the filet and sauce to perfection. The dressing for the salad was made fresh at the table. The service was refreshingly cordial but not... More

Some friends and I made our way to Quebec for a weekend visit. We were hoping to find a restaurant that featured local food. The place we hoped to go was booked so we asked the concierge at our hotel for a recommendation. She booked a reservation at Le Continental. It was a perfect meal from start to finish. We... More

This restaurant was recommended by our daughter-in-law. We are very happy to have taken her advise. We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary and wanted somewhere special. This is the place. The food, service and atmosphere made the evening one to remember. The only complaint is that we were sitting near wall lighting and it was a bit bright for... More

Located a few blocks from both the Citadelle and the Château Frontenac, Le Continental’s cozy interior invites to delight. We tried the Smoked salmon as appetizer, and felt in love with its delicate texture. The Noisettes of veal tenderloin was simply SPLENDID in every aspect, and the Continental's filet mignon flambé, prepared right next to our table, was superb. All... More

Although the prices may be slightly high, the service, atmosphere and food will have you feeling very satisfied for the money you'll spend. You will be able to tell from all of the waiters being professionally dressed in all white suits that your mewl is going to be special. With many of the dishes prepared or fully cooked table side!...

If your in Quebec City, Le Continental is a must go to for a great meal. Let me start by saying, while we were in Quebec for a little vacation, we planned on dining here, and when we asked the local people where should we go, everyone said to eat here. You won't be disappointed. This was probably the BEST... More
