Reminded me of being in Paris decades ago--totally traditional French menu in lovely old-fashioned restaurant. Flambe dishes a speciality, so lots of drama at the tables. Caesar salad, prepared table-side, was excellent and fun to watch being prepared. Sweetbreads were delicious. Service was friendly and professional.

Really special... More

Very nice restaurant in the center of Quebec. Good choice of menu and a la carte and excellent service. Some of the courses are prepared right by your table. Recommend excellent sweetbreads and crepes suzette.

We hadn't visited Le Continental in many years so we were due for a great meal. Many of the dishes are created tableside and watching the waiters perform their magic is part of the fun. We started with the Caesar salad for two created tableside. It was delicious and a healthy portion. My wife had baked salmon, and I had... More

Absolutely fantastic dining experience. Had filet mignon and crepe Suzette cooked at table side. Ambience was very romantic. This was the best meal I have had in 25 years of traveling to Quebec (and first time to Quebec City).

This restaurant is a standout. The food is fabulous whether you have one of the flambé items or choose something off the menu the meal is perfect. The service is attentive and the waiters are in white tux jackets. Very special, romantic in a great setting. Treat yourself and be totally pampered.

We dined at Le Continental our first night in Quebec and it was fun and delicious. There are many dishes prepared table side and it's worth having at least one for the experience.

Absolutely loved everything about this place from the food and beverage to the ambiance to the impeccable service. We had the CeSar salad which was prepared table side. Followed by the chateaubriand and maple cake. Very memorable evening.
