I have paid a few visits to The Continental while in Philly for business. Both were very good experiences. First was with a colleague for a business dinner. Shared hummus platter and a mushroom flatbread. Good wine selection but too pricey. Their wines by the glass are $2-3 more than like offerings elsewhere.
Second visit was with a larger group of peers. We did a lot of sharing. Excellent vegetarian options. The haystack is addictive. The premise of their menu is for sharing. When I was there with this group, everyone loved what they ordered and shared.
Big place. Lots of space. Check out the swings on the second floor. Same with the second floor back bar area. Pretty cool seating.
Service was ok. A bit off-putting at times. Casual indifference. Almost as if some requests were an inconvenience.
Good place for groups, couples, many gathering options. Can get really busy, especially Thursday through Saturday night.
