We shared a salad while visiting with a friend. There was a good selection of salads. We chose a spinach salad. It was large enough for two and very tasty. The place was very busy with a waiting list. We were seated quickly enough. Service was great and there is an extensive menu, if we had been hungrier. It was... More

Like all other Starr Restaurants, centrally located, fun destination and decent food...BUT, if your budget and you interest will allow, you may also want to try the original Continental on 2nd St., Buddakan, Morimoto or other of the terrific Starr Organization destination locations....

We had a great evening at the Continental celebrating my daughter's birthday. We were seated in a booth on the first level right in the center of the restaurant. We ordered lots of small plates and enjoyed sharing. A fun, loud, lively spot great for a dinner with family and friends.

Great place for a drink and meal. Making simple food look and taste great. I have been here many times and always ordering something different. One downer was trying to eat whimsy sitting on a swinging chair!

It was my Birthday and I meet my 3 sisters and 2 girlfriends at this establishment. To begin, I called at 10:00am to make a reservation for 7:30pm that evening. Upon our arrival they only had us in the system for 10:00am. Now why would I call at 10:00am for reservations for 10:00am? Make no sense. However, everything it still... More

As soon as you walk in, you know the food is going to be good. Interesting small(er) plates to share. The French Onion Soup dumplings were great!

Terrific food and service. Jon was patient, efficient, and attentive. Con: Menu lacks any kids choices. Atmosphere was high energy and the decor was unique and hip. Portion size was perfect. Priced correctly. Good coffee. We were visiting from Virginia and stumbled upon this popular local favorite on a Saturday night, no wait on 650pm but there was a line... More

Funky lounge decor. Great ambiance for a fun night out. Food was just okay. Service was great. We were seated upstairs by the bar without any wait on a Friday night. The best thing we ate here was the Szechuan fries piled high! Interesting & delicious.

Thank wooilovepancakes
