Went for a birthday dinner, quality of food was fantastic. Service and knowledge very good as well. Ambiance and decoration top tier! Not sure why there are poor reviews in regards to water or lack of service there was definitely no evidence of that whatsoever. I would recommend visiting.

My birthday dinner at Chairman’s started with “floaters” in our table water, followed up by a completely rare petit fillet (asked for medium). When we mentioned it to the server he politely agreed the steak was under cooked and took it to the back. I was surprised to see that I received the same petite fillet back that I had cut down the middle to check the cook. They simply placed it back on the grill and served it back to me completely burnt now (including the small pieces of meat I had made from the side of the steak before cutting down the middle). We were then billed full price for the meal! At this price point I would have expected a much higher level of service. Service and quality definitely do not meet the price point at Chairman’s.

Amazing food! I would highly recommend you go here. The scallops appetizer is to die for!!! When we got the dessert menu we saw at the bottom Thailand Coffee made table side for $50. Of course for $50 you know there must be a story behind it. And there is lol. It is a must have experience! Oh and you must make a trip to the washrooms while there. You’ll see why lol.

Where to start..had a great experience a year ago….today was hugely disappointing. My petite filet was over cooked and tough on the outside…how is that possible. Could not taste truffle (very distinctive flavour) in truffle gnocchi. Nobody checked in on is to give feedback to until we were almost done and then we were met with excuses and zero apologies even by the manager. Zero customer service, total amateurs. For this price point…don’t bother. Go to Alloy or Hy’s where the food is perfection and customer service is impeccable. Embarrassing for a “high-end steakhouse in Alberta to screw this up.

We absolutely love chairman’s so it was a no brainer for our 5th wedding anniversary. I called a week in advance and let them know of our special night. We understand that with the lifting of restrictions things are getting busy again however having to wait almost 2 hours for our food is a little much. There were numerous open tables around us and upon arriving we waited a good 10-15 minutes before we saw our waiter. We arrived just after 7 to have a drink while we waited for our table. All in all by the time we were seated to the time we left it was well after 930. By the time our food arrived shortly after 9 we were so hungry we scarfed every bit down and asked for the bill. We love the food here but sadly we’ll think twice before making reservations again.

First time dining at Chairman’s Steakhouse. Had heard many great things about their amazing steaks. Arrived and easily found parking in the parkade. Entered the restaurant and immediately greeted. Was sat without wait and hanged the menus. So cool as they lit up from the back and allowed easy reading of the selections. Our server was amazing all night and very knowledgeable of the cuts of beef, their preferred cooking and history of the beef. Never once did we feel pressured or rushed and our time their was valued. Appetizers and main courses were simply amazing and even a mistake by the kitchen, custom making a side that wasn’t offered on the menu was gifted to our table. Overall, Chairman’s delivered the best tasting steak and other items I’ve had in the city. Ps; the bathroom had a bidet- WOW!!

Let’s start by saying, I love steak and eat it frequently, so I know a good piece of steak.
It was a bday so I decided to make it special by booking Chairmen’s. I’ve been wanting to try this place since it opened, two years ago.
To my surprise they had a Wednesday special for two on the menu. A 20 ounce steak, cheese toast, 2 sides of your choice and cheesecake for dessert. We debated if it would be a good choice to order a “special” at a steakhouse, but decided to do it.
For appetizers, we ordered oysters and beef tartar.
While the oysters were very mediocre, (i eat a lot of raw oysters) the tartar was good. (Not the best I’ve had)
Moving on, cheese toast, underwhelming. Wasn’t cheesy enough in my opinion. (My favourite cheese toast is HY’s)
The 20 ounce ribeye was probably the most disappointing. Tenderloins and ribeyes are our go to cuts for steak. The ribeye they served us was not tender, in fact pretty tough and some parts chewy. For the sides, we choose the Mac and cheese and mash potatoes. The Mac and cheese was so salty that it was not edible and the mash was not creamy like the waiter described.
Overall, it was the worst steakhouse I’ve been to. I hate to leave negative reviews but it is because we were so excited to try it but came out so disappointed with the food. It was actually shocking how bad the food was.
I am somewhat confused with the reviews as everyone thought the food was excellent. Maybe it was just an off day for the chefs.
The ambience was really nice though…
