My family have started to make Chairman’s our go to place for special occasions. Wonderful servers and the food is beyond great. We have not been disappointed with any choices we’d made. Highly recommend🤗

We had a lovely night. The meal was amazing ! We go to the lounge regularly and I absolutely love the Waldorf salad . I had it of course and my husband had Caesar salad that he said was very good ! I followed up with the pork and gnocchi dish - loved it. My husband had the salmon and said it was amazing ! ( we would have considered the special but I do not eat beef ). We then had a crème brûlée for dessert !
The service was very good and we really like Chairman’s . It’s nice to have a top notch restaurant in the south end.
We were celebrating our 49th wedding anniversary! So going to Chairman’s for dinner really met and exceeded our expectations!!

Thank you !

Michael was a real pleasure to have at our special family dinner. Andreas (I believe) helped us choose a lovely Italian wine to compliment our meals. We had one guest from Norway and one from Malaysia and they really enjoyed their first dinner at Chairman's.

The food was excellent overall. The service was good but it felt a bit rushed and small things that you would expect at a fine dining restaurant (like keeping water glasses full) did not happen.

Will likely return but only for special occasions.

A couple of suggestions:
1.Notwithstanding that your steak knives are certainly of good quality & large enough, particularly for male carnivores, consider a version similar and smaller for your female carnivores. Ladies all dressed up beautifully and eating with a machete is not becoming!
2.The staff were excellent and please consider a revisit on the skirt design used for the female colleagues!
3. Certainly would recommend friends that have not been to try the experience and adventure as for those of us living in the core it is ,rightly or wrongly, a long trek! Maybe begs a downtown location potentially??

This was our 4th visit to Chairman’s we brought family from Toronto. The overall meal and experience was outstanding, our waiter Micheal was made a number of great recommendations regarding food choices and wine. The only omission is the lack of a decent white wine list. I have mentioned this in the previous 3 reviews I have posted. I spoke with Alec about this and nothing yet. Look to the higher end Steak restaurants in the US the trend is adding big whites. I will keep up the hope that one day I will see interesting whites on Chairman’s wine list.

I’ve been many times and usually it’s absolutely excellent but it really fell short this time in terms of food quality. The scallops were positively drenched in bacon foam, so much so that it looked like soup. The Caesar salad had so much dressing, it was tough to get through even half of it.

The steaks were cooked perfectly but were not seasoned very well and nearly cold by the time we got them. I tried the Potato Rosti, I do not recommend. It’s basically crispy shredded hash browns with glops of sour cream, meh.

The service was good, the atmosphere was great as usual and I’m ok with the higher prices because the quality is usually worth it but this time was a big disappointment.

Amazing food and the Wednesday $99 ribeye steak for two special is hard to beat .
Lower rating due to a few times our dishes were not removed from the table. However this wasn't the case the first time we went. The running joke at our table is we got the service that matched the special.

Food was good , although our porterhouse that was asked to be medium ended up arriving more on the well done side.
It was nonetheless delicious but in hindsight we wished we would have had that corrected.

Ambience & service were awesome though as was the medium rare porterhouse the other 2 guests at our table shared!

What a great new find! My wife and I are both Celiac and need to eat gluten free and they took great care of us. It’s a busy place and I would recommend booking weeks early if you want a Friday or Saturday evening dinner. We will be back.

It was a Wonderful date night with my wife. The beautiful ambiance was bested by the absolutely delicious food which was incredibly topped by the service! All the staff we encountered were motivated to make the evening special but Larae was our main server and she is one of a kind! Everything she recommended was perfect and she made us feel like royalty. We highly recommend Chairman’s Steakhouse & we will be back on a regular basis!

Have been eating here since it opened and the food has gone downhill. 3 of 4 steaks at the table were fatty and underwhelming. Sides have shrunk and are masked with oil and butter versus flavour.
After thinking Calgary had finally a gotten a top tier restaurant the hope is gone. Why do Calgary restaurants start off great and slide into mediocrity?

It was a wonderful birthday dinner for our daughter. Thank you. The staff was SO knowledgeable and kind. There was a rowdy table of older couples that were quite loud by the window. A bit distracting but overall great.
