The Continental is a restaurant in Naples, Florida that has been in business for approximately 2 and 1/2 years. It is part of the D’Amico and Partners local empire of restaurants including Cafe Lurcat, Campiello, Masa and D’Amico and Sons.

As you enter The Continental, there are a number of wonderful dining options. There is a very aesthetically pleasing outdoor dining area that includes cabanas in addition to dining at the outdoor bar. Should you be in the mood for a more private dining experience for a job interview or whatnot, that is available as well.
Some in house baked bread were brought to the table before we ordered.

My dining companion, being a Francophile, ordered steak tartare. This is a dish of finely chopped meat with seasonings of onions, capers, peppers and Worcestershire sauce. The whole preparation is known for the tasting sense of Unami (savory) before anyone knew what that was. The dish was made that more contemporary with the addition of a quail egg on top of the tartare, a Dijonnaise mustard mayo sauce, shredded horseradish and sliced radish.

I am a fool for Nicoise salad, and seeing that on the menu, felt compelled to order it. It was fantastic, and was the traditional salad with Nicoise olives, green beans, carrot, egg, perfectly cooked Ahi tuna with a mustard vinaigrette.

My dining experience at The Continental was most positive. The ambience was very good, the servers spot on and knowledgeable, and the food excellent. The price point is at the upper end of Naples dining options but in this case, you get what you pay for. Highly recommended.
