I went to Le Continental with my husband for lunch. The restaurant is very fancy, and therefore I would dress up if you are going for dinner. The restaurant is very expensive. If you are looking to save money, go for lunch and save 30-40 dollars per entree. Lunch was 20-30 dollars per entree. Dinner was about 60. We had... More

This restaurant was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Table-side preparations of Caesar Salad, to Steak-Au-Poivre. Outstanding attention to detail and very knowledgable and courteous staff. The wine list is vast and suits any taste or budget. The food was delicious, prepared perfectly and at no time did we feel rushed, or neglected. Absolutely great experience!

Probably the best tenderloin I've ever had. Not inexpensive, but you should save up and try this tenderloin (cooked at your table to your desired level). Perfectly veined about 3 1/2 inches thick, served with potatoes and vegetables, just excellent!

The food was wonderful. Our entree was prepared table side. The service was excellent and the ambience superb. We ordered a price fixed dinner. I would recommend this restaurant.

Although being on the pricy side this restaurant is well worth it. It offers Classical French cuisine and service.

Atmosphere inside is very opulent..service at the beginning was perhaps a tad overbearing. Many servers attempted to assist, which we found confusing. Food was very good...and our server was very helpful with choosing a wine. Food does take time to perpare, so be prepared to spend some time on site. We did enjoy the overall experience as other posts state,... More

We chose Le Continental when we could not book in Chateau Frontenac. What luck! The decor, ambiance, variety, service, food, table side preparation and staffing could not be improved. When the parking valet told us we would probably be the only foreign license plate in the lot, and then we found the restaurant was full, we knew - this is... More

We had to try this wonderful restaurant after reading and hearing about it from people we have met. We were not disappointed. They have a manageable wine list, great bar drinks and a food selection that is wonderful. The tables are managed by many wait staff and chefs which is not seen in many places. Each menu item we ordered... More
