Three full stories of fun await you at the Continental Mid-town. Whether you’re relaxing in the lounge, swinging in a basket chair on the jet-set mezzanine or taking in the night along the airy rooftop patio, it’s a total reprieve from the expected. The mouth-watering menu features bold and eclectic flavors, from signature jumbo lump crab pad thai and Szechuan shoestring fries to playful spins like cheesesteak eggrolls and French onion soup dumplings. Expertly mixed pop and retro cocktails ensure there’s something for everyone to sip on, no matter the occasion.

Food was AMAZING! Our server however was not. Took forever to get drinks and she asked if we wanted food, whole table said yes and she walked away and didn’t come back for another 20 minutes to take our food order.

We ate late so we had quiet outdoor seating. The food was very good with a twist on traditional favorites. Our waitress was very nice but a little less attentive than we would like.

Very noisy & music loud so difficult to hear my date. Food good but not outstandingly special. Szechuan fries were a nice shoestring crunchy fry but not Szechuan at all. All the appetizers & mains came out together- not ideal and we were told “that’s the way the kitchen does it”. No draft beers, odd for a bar restaurant. Good cocktail menu

Took some out of towners' (from Buffalo, NY) as they never have been to DT Philly. It was late when when they got in - but nice weather had us wanting to be outside and the Rooftop Lounge was a perfect spot. Had the edamame and cheese steak eggrolls, they were delish and as always the cocktails were spot on! Very accommodating and great funky atmosphere - you wont be disappointed.

Cocktail menu has little to be desired and the food is nothing to write home about but the atmosphere and service were spot on.

Love this place. Food is great. Our waitress was very attentive. We dined outside in the Streetery so that the noise level was not an issue.

Great food and nice setting on the roof deck of Continental Midtown. Music could have been a little softer. Could use more vegetarian options.

Good. Apps were great. Main courses were pricey for what you get. Main courses didn’t have sides or salad. Overall was good. More of a cocktail/app restaurant. Cocktails were very good.

The staff at Continental did a fantastic job of meeting/exceeding my expectations. It was the first company dinner we have had since the pandemic began, many of us were meeting in person for the first time. The staff arranged so that our entire group of twelve was able to sit together. Our server was excellent and he was training a new server, who also did a nice job.

This was my second visit to Continental and I must say, I will be back. We ate a variety of small plates, more food than I thought possible, and EVERY SINGLE ITEM was delicious. Not one complaint from anyone and plenty of compliments about the great restaurant that was chosen.

Keep up the good work!

The host was very nice and accommodating. We picked outside seating for our reservation but wanted to sit inside when we arrived and saw the ambiance of the inside. The host found us a table inside right away with no issue and very kind.

There were 4 of us and we ordered and shared the short rib skewers, lobster Mac, fried chicken and cheesesteak egg rolls….. each one of those was amazing in their own right, down right tasty.
Vibe was on point.
We sat roof top.

Can’t wait to go back

I haven't been back to Continental Midtown in about 10 years and I was glad to see the same great food and the same great service is still going strong. I was also happy to see the place was crowded, especially in this post-pandemic (?) world. It's always a great experience. Thanks!
