    Why so slow?

    We have eaten brunch here many times and the food is always pretty good. However, the kitchen timing and service is ALWAYS disappointing. It NEVER fails that we order a soup or app and then an entree. We wait forever for our soup or app, then as soon as we get it, they immediately bring our entree. Being a chef or cook is about timing, not just a tasty product. Our only other complaint is that we find it highly irritating and ridiculous that your restaurant is represented by a huge olive, yet, every olive we have ever had there in a martini or Bloody Mary is old, dry, and a horrible grey green color. Easy fixes so make them!

    great dinner!

    coming from NYC, i was surprised to find that this trendy and fun restaurant had tables ready to go at 7:30 with fast and efficient service. we tried the korean pork tacos, lobster mac'n'cheese, french onion soup dumplings and the shoestring fries, all were terrific (although the dumplings were not really soup dumplings, but still tasty nonetheless). the drinks are good, though err on the side of sugary, although non-sugary drinks can be found on the menu. terrific dinner!

    Still looking

    Still looking for a decent brunch. Poor service, kitchen does not pay attention to requests, portions small and food mediocre at best.

    Not that great

    Went there with my brother from Pittsburgh, not impressed. Food was average and terribly overpriced. The atmosphere was nice but not wort the visit.

    Fun and Yummy

    I love, love, love this place. The decor is different, futuristic, and fun. The service is friendly and efficient. The drinks are awesome--loved the pomarita! I had the crispy calamari salad--yes, the calamari were crispy and tasty, the soy ginger dressing was to die for. My friends had the Asian chicken salad and the frittatas. Both raved about the food. Coffee was delicious also. Can't wait to go back. I love the AC Continental, but this one was even better. Highly recommended.

    On A Whim

    Love Phila restaurants and found a parking spot near Whiskey on a rainy Sunday early afternoon. Whiskey opened later in the afternoon so decided to try the Continental which we had stuck our head in a couple of times but decided it was too upscale for us. Wow were we surprised. First the atmosphere is very different. I don’t even know what you would call it. Modern maybe? Kind of reminded me of one of those very old Popular Mechanics homes of the future. Jetsons maybe? Thought the food looked a little expensive looking over the lunch/brunch menu but that was my mistake. Did not know that the portions were very large. I ordered a Continental hamburger. I rarely order hamburgers but the atmosphere called for it. My wife ordered a Chicken Salad sandwich. Both were tasted excellent and beyond expectations in size. I had a side of shoestring French fries and my wife got the dinner salad; both of which were included with the meal. The salad was wonderful and next time I’m going to order a Crispy Calamari salad. If it’s as good as dinner salad it will be worth the money. Service was also exceptionally good.

    Awesome in Philly

    I first tried Continental in the Atlantic City Location then decided to try try the one in Philadelphia both locations the food was wonderful but they have different menus. When in Philadelphia the waiters where more consistent then in A.C. and friendlier and I tried the cheesesteak eggrolls which was like a modern spin to a city favorite and i tried almost all the desserts and by far my favorite was the restaurant made cotton candy. Bring your friends or family whoever you bring they are guaranteed to have a great time.
