Okay, I get it. Eat at a fine French restaurant while on vacation with exemplary service but pay the price. Still, I paid $250 for 2 and I just can't feel great about it. I dined with a friend who lives in Québec and we were so excited to be together and looked forward to our evening ahead. However, this... More

Le Continental delivered an exceptional dining experience through its superior service and unique steak preparation. The attentive service was almost like a throwback to previous days where there was a greater emphasis on guest service and meal presentation. The table-side preparation of our filet mignons was unique. The flambé was begun, the steaks were seasoned and then grilled according to... More

Great food, great atmosphere and great service! We love going to dinner here when in Old Quebec City. We have wonderful table side preparations and have always had a very personal waiter. It is lively yet also with a romantic feel. They are very accommodating with reservations and when we have asked for special tables they have been right in... More

To my opinion, the Continental Restaurant is a must for anyone touring around Quebec City. This high end restaurant offers a wonderful mix of French and Italian cuisine with the best professional sevice at your table. Don't miss this great spot.

Always good, slightly touristic, but with a continental elegance. We were there 30 years ago and brought the old menu. The maître de was quite perplexed. Nice evening Would go again.

My cousin, a Canadien, had told us to go though he hadn't been in 20 years, said it was a must. And it was delightful; full of old time charm; delicious food; lovely Chilean waiter - very close to hotel.

A wonderful experience of table-side service, to have a beautiful Caesar Salad prepared before your eyes and to pick your steak out and... More
