Visiting Quebec City for my 50th birthday, we decided to visit given that I wanted to visit a Steakhouse. This place was outstanding, with a great selection of wines, and fresh, table side preparation of much of the dinner. Situated on Rue St. Louis close to the Fairmont Chateau Frontenac, it is a very convenient option that is a true... More

This is a very elegant, old- school establishment. The service is attentive, but non-obtrusive. The decor is impeccable.There was nothing really astonishing about the food, except for the table-side preparations that made it all seem extravagant.. Lots of flames! It is difficult to ruin a $52.00 steak. The waiter told us local ladies come in each day and make the... More

You MUST go here. I picked it because we wanted Chateaubriand. We didn't get the filet mignon flamed table side but another couple near by did. I thought ours looked better. The mushroom sauce was to die for. I tried the french onion soup but the broth was too clear for my taste. The best part was the smell of... More

This is just one of those experiences that you will never forget and will always be special and a MUST to come back. The atmosphere is awesome. It's located on a super cute Quebec City cobblestone street. The service was excellent. I truly have no idea how the waiter does it. He remembered all 6 of our orders without writing... More

This is the 3rd time we have been to this restaurant and it has never let us down. The service was top notch (Michel was super) the presentation spot on, and the beef cooked to perfection, it melted in our mouths. This place is not cheap but the only comparable place for chateaubriand I could compare it to would have... More

The Continental is always very consistant in offering a couple hours of real pleasure and gastronomy, first class service (but not stuffed up) and old french charm. We love going back year after year.

A high end French cuisine restaurant in the heart of old QC. From the moment you walk in, you know you are in for high quality service and divine French food. Service is attentive but not intrusive. The Flambé dishes are a must for their taste and the experience of the cooking. Michel explained every part of our meal especially... More

Had maybe the best dinner of our lives here. Celebrating out honeymoon and we were treated like royalty. Never lifted a finger! The food is absolutely amazing. They treated us to a complimentary champagne toast. Don't miss the creme brûlée. You won't be disappointed.
