Had a wonderful dinner at le Continental as part of a romantic getaway in Quebec City this past weekend. We found the venue to be posh with a nice romantic ambiance, and the staff are very attentive.

We thoroughly enjoyed this quintessential French fine-dining experience. The cocktails were nicely crafted. The Caesar Salad and steaks were prepared table-side to perfection. We capped the meal with St. Honore... More

At one time in my life I worked in a formal old style French restaurant and Le Continental is exactly that. The service is friendly and attentive, the waiters know what you need before you ask. The food prepared at the table not only provided an interesting show but the flavours and presentation were excellent. The escargots were perfect, the... More

We went early on on a Saturday night in early March. No problem getting a reservation, but they did get markedly busier as the evening went on. Splendid old school service, with a special mention for our waiter, who was tolerant of our weak attempts at French, and he made a nice personal level of connection. As for the food...... More

On a very busy night during Winter Carnival, our group was seated timely. Although our waiter was balancing multiple tables with flambé requests, he was able to keep up with our requests and was particularly personable when things slowed down to a more reasonable pace. Everyone was very pleased with the variety of meals we had from shrimp scampi to... More
