My wife and I ate here on a Saturday night during a weekend in Philly for business and pleasure. The menu is friendly to all palates, and the cocktails were well made. The service was friendly and attentive. The rooftop bar was great, the mid century modern decor reminded me of a scene out of Mad Men. Great all around... More

We've been here several times and have always enjoyed it. We stopped in a few weeks ago and my wife had the Spinach Ravioli with toasted pine nuts, tomatoes, and fresh basil and she loved it. She also had the Steamed Edamame. I had the Korean Pork Tacos and Grilled Thai Chicken Skewers. The tacos were awesome but chicken skewers... More

This eclectic (you can sit in hanging chair swings while dining) restaurant is mostly Asian Fusion. Portions are pretty big, and prices are reasonable. CAUTION... before ordering, ask your server how spicy your selection is. We ordered RAD NA, which is basically an Asian chicken salad with romaine. We both like spicy (hot) food, but this was too hot.

PK, our bartender, made our visit the best bar experience ever. Engaged us in conversation and made us curious to try different cocktails that we hadn't tried before. The drinks he made were absolutely delicious! Fabulous drinks and we learned things too.

My last rooftop bar (after visiting 3 prior) turned out the best. A must visit in Philly - not for the view - but for the warm, relaxed and friendly ambience. Choose from comfy lounges, dedicated alfresco tables or a seat at the circular bar. Plenty of heater to keep you warm when the sun sets and a diverse bit... More

We were a party of five for Sunday brunch. Everyone's food was excellent. The choices were quite broad and everyone was veryt happy with their meal: huevos ranchers, smoked salmon eggs benedict, brioche French toast. Portions were generous, price reasonable -- 10 to 15 dollars per person,-- and the service was excellent.

I stopped with friends here to have a small lunch and I was not disappointed! When you walk into this place it is so laid back and relaxed and the inside is so unique! Alot of places that have a unique building or interior don't do a good job with their food but Continental is not one of those places.... More

I stopped here while shopping in Philly hoping for a small plate and some wine. I ended up on a rooftop sipping a Negoni and eating some of the best Poke this side of Honolulu. What a lovely afternoon! I will visit again when I am in town, it was perfect.

Friday lunch - Food is a little fancy for picky kids but everything we had was tasty. Service was a bit slow and the restaurant wasn't very busy - could have just been the server we got. I would visit again if in downtown Philly. The bathroom situation was weird though. Elevator to basement and then only 1 small bathroom... More

Just walking by and saw the huge olive on the side of the building and the cool decor and my 9 year old said "let's eat there"! The kale beet and goat cheese salad was fabulous. Service was quick and friendly. We sat upstairs in the hanging bamboo chairs! Portions are large and prices are decent.
