Yes, it is expensive, unless you remember that at the time of this entry the Canadian dollar was worth 30% less. My wife and I were seated on a snowy, late December '16 evening. The restaurant is cozy and the menu excellent. Our waiter was superb. I marveled at how he could attend to 3 tables AND serve our meals... More

Waiters and their manager are very rude, treat people like bugs, totally ruined our family Christmas dinner. They gave us 2 hours slot to finish our meal and we were fine with it because it always takes us around 2 hours or less to finish our meal because we have a 6-x years old son with us always. When we... More

We had Christmas dinner at Le Continental. It wasn't the mind blowing experience that nearly 500USD should provide a family of 5. We had dinner at 1640 the night before. The menu and food was much better at about a third of the price. I enjoy fine dining but this is a lot of pomp and circumstance without the food... More

I know this is one of QC's top restaurants, but I wasn't particularly impressed. The only thing that is impressive is the service (think 50's fine dining). Other than that ~ the tables are close together and therefore it was noisy. The food: mediocre. I had the vegetable soup as my appetizer….could have opened a can and gotten better. Had... More

We ate at five of the top-rated restaurants in Quebec City over the New Year holiday weekend. Chez Boulay and Le Clocher Penche served up tasty brunches, while iX Pour Bistro and Panache offered excellent dinners. Unfortunately our first meal, dinner at Le Continental on the night we arrived, was merely average. Le Continental’s reputation and charm relies heavily on... More

Overall: this restaurant has the pricing of fine dining but it is not fine dining as far as food or service. Service: the service is very slow where we had to wait for 30 minutes to get our first course and another 15 minutes to get a soup (which should just be ready). Our server needs to learn a little...

We booked Le Continental for our Christmas Dinner and we were not disappointed. This establishment is top shelf. We were greeted at the front door with staff ready to take our coats and take us to our table. The wait staff were professional and friendly, knowing the menu and wine list well. The setting was traditional and very French. The... More

We met with some friends from Connecticut at this restaurant to kick off their vacation during the week before Christmas. The restaurant was highly recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. The waiter cooked the steak at our table - it was quite entertaining. The filets must have been 3 inches thick, and literally melted in your mouth. I... More

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.
