We saw this restaurant on Anthony Bourdain's show and decided to try it out. The service was impeccable and the flambe was amazing! We had caesar salad, filet mignon (BEST cooked steak I've ever had!), and shrimp newburgh. Everything was so delicious we even booked...More

My wife and I chose Le Continental because of it's location near the Chateau Frontenac. It was an excellent choice. The best descriptor I can think of is elegant with tuxedoed waiters service that takes me back many years. We chose the table d'hote which...More

This is an excellent choice for a special occasion, especially an anniversary. They do table side cooking and you won't find a better ceasar salad in Canada. Delicious. Great steaks and French onion soup too. A little on the pricey side but a nice treat.

Walked in having heard about the very good reputation of Le Continental. Decor was pleasant and appropriate. Even the servers were decked out properly. But then 1980 hit you in the head when you start in on the menu. Nothing innovative among the offerings. Yes...More

Where can you find tableside service with flambe preparation in the US? I'm not at all sure it exists anywhere. Le Continental is a bastion of grand old-school cuisine and an essential experience if you love that. Exquisite sweetbreads with mushrooms and raviolis as first...More

We decided to splurge on supper and this was worth the money. We both had the filet mignon cooked at the table. Some may think this is a throw back to the 70's steakhouses and they would be right but great service doesn't go out...More

Service was very good, food was ok. Very expensive for what you get. But the atmosphere was very nice. We had the flambé, it was very different to have your food cooked right in front of you. Decor needs to be updated but all in...More
