I know I had reviewed the other Continental location, but in my opinion, there's definitely a difference between the two. I came to this location a year after I went to the other. I'm still not impressed with the food, but I do love the setup a lot more at this location on Chestnut Street. I went with two other people and we sat upstairs where it's open seating basically. I don't usually like open seating, but it worked out. I didn't know that after a certain hour though you must show ID to go there. I left the bldg for a moment to give my brother something, and when I got back, this man was asking me for ID. Since I didn't see him before, I asked if he were joking around. Long story short, just have ID. Our waiter was a bit wacky, but at least he was nice. I definitely loved the desserts here though. I had always wanted to try that peanut butter brownie, but I never found an appropriate time to order it. I'm still not in a rush to go back to this restaurant, but if someone suggests it, I won't totally revolt.

WHich tea, which tea, which tea? Well there are enough to have a new one a day for a long time. The staff is helpful and their knowledge is unsurpassed. I have had a couple of meetings there and everybody has been impressed with the experience.

More places on Lower Fillmore need to take notes from Rassela's. Solid place to listen to some Jazz and sip on moderately priced - and stiff - cocktails. However, I've heard that service is bad at the tables, so I'd try to snag a seat at the bar. I've never had problems getting served sitting there.
