Really great small dishes. We didn't have drinks but they all looked amazing. Next time!

Great! A trip to Philadelphia with my girlfriend continued to go very well when we stopped at the Continental restaurant for lunch. at this point in our trip we were both starved for vegetables, having eaten lots of cheese and meat type hors d'oeuvres plus seafood. We luckily were strolling by at the time and went in for lunch to discover two of the most impressive looking salad plates we had gotten in a long time. My girlfriend got a roast chicken breast salad with a Greek theme, and I got the calamari salad which had chopped cabbage carrots bean sprouts and lettuce in addition to calamari in a nice soy ginger dressing. Both were enormous and delicious, and the service was outstanding. If memories serves, Courtney was our server. Nice drink menu too though we did not partake.

A lot of vegetarian options. Nice place to have a chat with friends. Food does take sometime to come out.

Menu seemed a little strange but everything was really really good. We had a large party and they were very accommodating! Yummy mimosas

Wow! Sit at the bar and enjoy the friendly staff and clever cocktails. The restaurant was nearly empty before a concert and the employees were supportive of our festive vibes. It was a great start to the evening and would recommend for anyone at any time of day.
