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.

As fine dining goes, this restaurant is pure euphoria. It may be pricey to some, but to those who appreciate the unparalleled cuisine, cost is inconsequential. It is the service, the perfect culinary experience and the sheer ecstasy of the ambience that is all part of the price at the end of the day. It is the best of establishments for a very special occasion, or to simply celebrate life and your good fortune to be able to experience such a place. Life is to live. You must treat yourself to wonderful experiences now and then. This is one.

I made a reservation the previous night for 8pm on Saturday. I later ended up changing it to 7 and then again to 730pm. They were always courteous and accommodated my annoying time changes. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very formal and pleasant. We ordered the Escargot as an appetizer which were great. We then had the house special which is a flambe filet minion in a delicious gravy made at table side. The filet minion was the best I have ever had, melted in my mouth and although it was more than I could eat, I finished every last bite! The other main we ordered were the crab legs which were equally delicious. We skipped out on desert and had a glass of wine each. The bill was $155 taxes and tips included, which is quite pricy for 1 appetizer, 2 mains and 2 glasses of house wine. That being said it was delicious, so if you have the money don't think twice.

Waiters in white dinner jackets who prepare entrees, salads, and desserts tableside. Enough said.

The resaurant is timeless classic. Ordering a flambe dish is must! The flambes are prepared tableside by an expert waiter/chef. The filet mignon is perfect as are the shrimp. I also strongly reccommend the ceasar's salad, which is also prepared tableside (who needs the kitchen!).

A charming place that will take you back in time. My only criticism is that they could have a better selection of wines by the glass.
