  • I so agree with the "Horrible ...
    by  on 12/19/2012

    I so agree with the "Horrible Terrible Attitude towards Disabled People"! I just had lunch there with my father-in-law and his 89 year old mother-in-law. There was a 25 minute wait and she has trouble standing for that long, as you can imagine if you are 89 years old. The hostess told us we could sit at the bar while waiting. She sat down, and the bartender asked her to move since she was not going to eat at the bar and he wanted the space for his eating patrons. We offered to buy a drink (3 of us, 4 bar stools available, we are using 1 bar stool), but he said no, she had to stand unless she was eating. She has problems standing that long and almost passed out! He just didn't care. TERRIBLE HORRIBLE ATTITUDE TO DISABLED AND ELDERLY!!!!!

  • Like Steven Starr's other places, this is highly over-rated

    A restaurant that bore the ""Steven Starr"" label used to count for something... nowadays it usually means this; cool decor, pricey albeit interesting drink list, snobby crowds, sub-par food and completely average overall experience. It's happened to just about all of the Starr places, and Continental Mid-Town is no exception. When you walk in, the ambiance is promising. But then, you check out the other people there, and interact with the employees, and already your enthusiasm falters. Looking at the menu, you may get excited again-- the offerings looks appealing. And then they arrive... Steven Starr is a genius, but he seems to be spread too thin. After yet another abysmal experience in one of his locations, I'm done. If you're hungry and in this area, feel free to skip here, Parc, and Barclay Prime. There are much better places to go in that immediate vicinity.

    HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am disabled woman and require a service dog and the Continental on Chestnut St. refused me and my friend service b/c of my service dog who was very visibly in his uniform and on duty. I talked with the waiter and staff and told them my rights and that he needs to be with me at all times and why and they demanded that I provide them with paperwork. I told them I was not required by law to carry or show ANYONE his paperwork and the vest and ID badge he was wearing is all they need to see. They cannot legally demand I tell them my disability either. The manager Tracy, yelled at me in front of other patrons. Everyone was staring at us, I was so humiliated I cannot even tell you. My blood sugar was dropping and I knew I needed to eat something quick so we went elsewhere since they refused to give me anything to eat or drink. I wonder if I would have had fainted or had a seizure if we had waited around, then they could have seen that my service dog always does his job. It is now 2010, ADA was passed in 1990. What really needs to happen so that disabled people or those with medical needs requiring service dogs like myself are on equal footing with the rest of the population?? Are people still so ignorant that they will not educate themselves on these issues when managing a restaurant in center city??

    I went here on a date, and I really had a nice experience. Wait staff was very attentive, the place with busy with a good ""buzz"", and I enjoyed the creative choices of food to eat. Everything we sampled was excellent. They have an eclectic drink menu as well. Highly recommend it!
