“worst ever”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

the beginning no one help us get a seat and the owner was a jerk told the waiter to sell us only bottles of wine instead of glasses like we didn't hear him when he said it we where right there food sucked heavy wined down ,for the alcohols a party was too load no one looking after us and it was as we weren't even there. keep asking time n time again for drinks and help all in all a very untasteful night n will never go again , its jerks like this that give Italian restaurants a bad name.

“Great place”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Have been going to Cafe Continental for many years and always get a great meal. The food is exceptional and the service great. Last week we were 6 and everyone had a different meal and all were superb. On weekends it is a little loud but that is part of the fun. The experience the other reviewer had must have been an aberration as we have found management (who are always on site) to be very customer oriented.

“one of the guests bit my husband's ear and threatened us”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

We used to go to Cafe Continental every weekend until we were there one Thanksgiving weekend and the people at the table next to us were drunk loud and obnoxious. They were at least 12 sitting next to us and when we asked them to keep the noise level down (the place is small and can get very loud, so given a large table of drunk folks, you couldn't have a conversation during dinner) one of the guys stood up came over to our table and headlocked my husband, bit his ear and threatened him.
Management, waitors, and others watched and DID NOTHING.
No phone calls followed from owners to apologize, nor were the people kicked out. All our waiter did was come over and offer to move our table... which means he knew what happened. we declined and left. Will never set foot there again. Not sure what type of clientele the place is attracting, but the way was handled was really disappointing. We were scared that the guys at the table were going to follow us into the parking lot and harm us. Pretty disturbing.
