Looking forward to our last night in the city, I chose this highly acclaimed restaurant. It was 6:30 on Monday evening and not very crowded. Our waiter was anxious for us to make a decision. I chose several vegetable options for a vegetarian plate. My husband chose the veal medallions. The food was brought lukewarm. My husband returned his meal.... More

Yes it is a little pricey but totally worth it. We could not have been more pleased. As walk-ins we got a wonderful table and perfect waiter. The food was phenomenal, beautifully presented, and innovative. I would definitely go again

This is a fabulous restaurant, with incredible food, beautiful room, and helpful staffers who made the meal even more enjoyable. For a main course, we had the duck l'orange, which was incredibly delicious.

Think 30 years ago. Stuffy older waiters that look down their noses at you. This is the only restaurant during our stay that made me feel like I was out of place, and the food was OK, but nothing special. Some food I felt was under seasoned. Maybe just not my style. The salad dressing that was made at the... More

The Chateau Frontenac's concierge made dinner reservations for me and my wife on our last night in Quebec City...as I had asked for a restaurant that served fresh Atlantic lobster. This restaurant is only down the block from the hotel...so if it rained, it would be a fast run to and from the restaurant. The service and ambience was outstanding...very... More

The food was great and the service attentive. We had the Châteaubriand Bouquetière for Two Persons and it was superb! The place is however a little pretentious.

We had a memorable dinner at this classic French restaurant in the heart of Quebec City (upper town). Two of our courses were served table side by the best waiter, Alberto, who made our meal even more enjoyable. We highly recommend Le Continental.

With so many great restaurants in Old Quebec City, it can be difficult to decide... Do yourself a favor and pick Le Continental for one of your meals while visiting this fine city. Our food prepared table side was tremendous, and our waiter, Alberto, made our evening even better! Select the Filet mignon Continental en boîte Grand Spécial and you'll... More
