Fun restaurant

Loved the ambience, large restaurant, two levels, the waiter was fantastic and overall so is the staff and the food. Started with edamame followed by the Asian chicken salad which was simply delicious. Crispy and a great dressing.

Went on a whim with my colleague an boss. Mid century modern meets fusion tapas at this location! Although busy, the server was great and the food was good. Best part of all is their killer Brussel sprouts!!!!

There are a few Continentals in Philadelphia - this one is larger and has two levels. I have been here now three times - food is always good, servers can be a bit curt. Recommend the crab pad thai.

Superb food and a lovely location. We went with our 2 little kids on a Saturday night and that was probably not the best idea - but it was ok anyway. We enjoyed our dinner!

Took the family here and they loved it! I'm talking about two teenage girls, one 17 and one 14. The food and atmosphere was terrific. We ordered a variety of dishes: French Onion Soup Dumplings, Steamed Edamame, Meatballs and Steak Frites. Everything was amazing. All of our steaks were tender and delicious and that is really what the girls were... More

The restaurant has great food. Continental is known for the tapas, but they do make some very good entrees. The rooftop deck is amazing, it is the temperature of being inside, but you feel like you are outside.

Service and food were awful. Waited forever for a waiter to come and even poor glass of water, forever for him to take order, he preferred to stand around and talk with other waiters. Food was greasy and not fresh

The concierge at the Sonesta Hotel recommended this restaurant, which is about a block from the hotel. It is very modern decor, eclectic menu with small plates (we got brisket-stuffed steamed bao dumplings, fried brussels sprouts, and beef kofta) and large plates (we got veal and ricotta meatballs and chili short ribs). We shared a marscapone cheesecake for dessert. Each... More

Went and celebrated my wife's birthday. Different then I expected and much more appealing on the inside. The food was outstanding and our servers were superb. Lobster and Mac is to die for! I can't wait until we go again.
