I went there with my friends for my birthday.
It's was very nice to know the restaurant because they had very tasty food and nice staff and elegant atmosphere.
I had smoked salmon and red soup something beet vegetable soup. The salmon had vey nice texture and the soup was also good as a starter. I could tell they are professional :)
So delicious and definately want to go there again :D

My wife and I went to the Continental Treat on Friday night and both order the Schintzel special with beer and dill pickle soup. It was amazing! The server was so pleasant and accommodating, which I found to be a surprise, as Edmonton service tends to be average. The evening was perfect and this is a new favorite restaurant for us! We have seen the restaurant for years and are wishing we had first gone 5 years ago.

Thanks for saying such amazing things about us! I'm glad you and your wife had a great time dining with us. We pride ourselves on fine service and great food—so you've come to the right place for a memorable evening out. Our Schnitzel and dill pickle soup are definitely favorites among our longtime guests. We're honored to be your new favorite restaurant. If you haven't already heard, we also regularly host prix fixe beer dinners. They are always a lively good time with live jazz, a cheese reception, and guided tastings. Our next one is happening on March 12. If you're interested, feel free to poke around our website for reservation details (under "Events"). We'd love to have you and your wife there!

Cheers,
Sylvester, Owner

The food was different and nice to try. We walked in one day when they opened and they said we could not eat as they were all booked up but there were only a few people in the resturant so they really are not into walk ins i guess. definitely need a reservation. its ok and something different to try. a couple visits is enough for me.

Thanks for dining with us, Chris. I'm sorry we weren't able to accommodate you when you walked in. Sometimes a seemingly empty floor may have already been reserved for later in the evening, which is why we always advise that reservations be made. We'd hate to have to turn you away! On another note, did you enjoy your meals when you visited? How did our service staff do? Quality food and top-notch service is important to us, and we always welcome suggestions on how to improve. Your ratings directly affect our business, so your feedback will help us ensure that our guests enjoy a 5-star experience with us.

Sincerely,
Sylvester, Owner

We have been dining here for over 6 years and we have not been disappointed yet. Tonight's meal was celebrated in honor of our mother's 70th birthday. This milestone only comes once and we knew we would not be disappointed. The Birthday girl ordered her favorite, Flaczki and Tartar, whom in her humble opinion is the best Flaczki outside of Poland.
Once you are inside it truly feels like a European Bistro. Great beer selection and of course the food never disappoints. The Filet Mignon was exceptionally exquisite this evening.
In summary; It is expensive but unlike some things in this world we feel that you receive what you pay for at this gem of a restaurant. Smacznego!! (Polish for Bon Appetit)

My wife and I dined for our anniversary and it was perfect. Table 5 is the one to ask for - best table in the place, but only for 2. The pickle soup was excellent and the gluten free options were good. Overall, a great experience.
