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.

One of our favorite restaurants in Quebec City. For my appetizer, I had the onion soup, and for our main course, my wife and I both had the filet mignon, which was prepared in front of us, and cooked to perfection. It was really delicious.

Very nice atmosphere and nicely decorated. The service was also excellent, although our waiter really didn't have much to say.

The portion sizes were adequate, and the prices reasonable.

All in all, a very pleasant experience - highly recommend.

In Montreal our classic french places are disappearing slowly in favour of "fusion" type joints. Le Caveau is gone as is Les Halles.

We came to Quebec City for a weekend and decided to eat at Le Continental after seeing Anthony Bourdain eat there on Parts Unkown.

It's great to know that classic french cuisine is alive and well. Our service was superb. The waiter, Bruno, was 100% attentive and super nice to my young kids. He helped us order the good stuff and prevented us from over ordering. He arranged kid size portions and special deserts for the kids. He also prepare a great Caesar salad at the table side - and the duck a L'orange was one of the best ever. My wife's fillet mignonette was prepared at the table - delicious and perfectly cooked.

The maître d and managers checked on us multiple times to make sure we were good. Really wonderful service. The decor was wonderful - also very classic in a nice old building.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice quiet classic french meal in QC. For a lively atmosphere, they have a more club-like place attached called Cozzi.

Highly recommend for families, dates, and any other group. Appropriate for any event. Overall, lots of fun and a great Quebec City experience overall.

The restaurant is known for flambe and they do a truly outstanding job in this regard. Their Caesar salad is made at the table in a traditional fashion and is to die for. Our server prepared shrimp at the table which were perfectly cooked and had an amazing flavour. Additional meals were rack of venison. Yum! The staff are very friendly and helpful. All courses were outstanding. Wine recommendations were excellent. Not a cheap place but worth every penny. Be sure to have at least one meal they prepare at the table. We will definitely be returning.
