Description: Total EnjoymentIn the gourmet world of Le Continental, traditional cuisine is classical. Enjoy the perfect service, the great flambéed dishes that pay tribute to the delicious French cuisine. The Continental's wine cellar is most impressive with its board of famous selection of French, Italian and American wines. It offers a choice of more than five thousand bottles, four hundred different varieties from Grands Crus classés to affordable prices.

Generally I find snow crab a little watery but this was fresh delicious solid and perfectly cooked. It was the best snow crab I have ever had. It was out of shell with a lovely sauce and vegetable sides. I also had the lobster bisque which was rich and delicious. My husband had to deal with a delicious mushroom wine reduction sauce.
The service was impeccable and it was a very welcoming warm atmosphere. Ambiance is very romantic old world yet clean and crisp. We had a nice bottle of wine and I am surprised that it did not cost more. Very reasonable for the price and the wonderful experience.

The restaurant is beautiful and traditionally elegant. Service is formal, but friendly. Food is very good. The 3 course lunch menu is a great value!

Lovely Restuarant just a few minutes walk from Le Frontenac. Excellent menu and cocktails. Friendly service in English.

We felt like time travelers, the restaurant having a menu from years ago. Maybe not for everyone who has to have the "latest", but flambe dishes everywhere, from duck to filet to crepes suzette, brought me back to my youth. Also great service, friendly staff.

Our dinner was amazing, that said this is not a restaurant for the "faint of wallet". The finest dining using french style, table-side service. Ceaser salad made table-side, steaks also cooked table-side were fabulous. Even the crepes suzette were done table-side. Fine wines, great food with ornate styling - what a great experience.
