2/4 of our steaks were overdone, they did ask if they were done to our expectations but we knew sending them back would interupt the flow of our meal, the veggie side dishes were all excellent, our server was ok but we had better interactions with the people bringing out our food, the table is small due to all the side dishes being on separate plates, but these things didn’t ruin our night, overall it was very good

We always go for the tomahawk Sunday special. It's so good. The carrots with mascarpone was very good. Carrots were a bit undercooked but other than that it was great. Brussels sprouts also delicious!

Once again, Modern Steak in Kensington was amazing. Our server was once of the best I’ve had, extremely passionate about the restaurant and how they do things there. Amazing service.

Food, as always, incredible.

Went there for the mother-in-laws birthday, as her and her husband had never been. They loved every second of it.

I will continue to recommend Modern Steak as my go to steakhouse in Calgary.

How have I not been here before?! My boyfriend and I had dinner at Modern to celebrate and it could not have been more perfect! I’m not sure why we haven’t been there before but we’re happy we finally did.

I called the day before our reservation and spoke to the manager explaining that we’d be celebrating and requested a bottle of champagne be waiting on ice at our table. I asked him to choose a bottle of Brut off the N/V menu saying I would trust his judgment. When we arrived for dinner we were greeted by the manager I had spoken to who led us downstairs and introduced us to our server.

Our server first brought us some water and then presented and poured out glasses of an exquisite bottle of champagne the manager had chosen on my behalf. We ordered several east coast oysters and the best steak tartare I think I’ve had that our server suggested as appetizers.

The manger stopped by just after our appetizer order was taken to see if we were enjoying the champagne (definitely) and congratulate us. We asked his opinion on which tomahawk we should share (the black angus with mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts) and if he had a wine suggestion. I don’t usually like wine and only remember that it was red but it was so good! The tomahawk was perfectly grilled and the dog was thrilled when we brought him home the bone.

Our server was friendly without being too familiar and kept our evening moving at the perfect pace. We finished off our dinner with a couple of shafts and the brulee which were also delicious.

Thank you to the manger and our server for making our evening as wonderful and special as it could possibly be and to the kitchen staff for making everything taste so delicious. We will most definitely be back again and again!

Hi, I was hoping for a much better experience than I had. It was supposed to be a special date night for my wife and I. When we arrived we were told we need masks on to be seated. They had no to give us so back to our car we went, 3 blocks away, wife in heels. Came back and right in front of us customers with no masks on moving from the dining room to the washroom. Didn’t make sense to me. Had a beer and Clamato to start, order another after appetizer and it never came. Temperature was quit cold and wife didn’t want to take her jacket off because so cold. Steak came which was good, side of mash potatoes came 5 minutes later when steak half done and they were ice cold? Disappointing experience, expected so much more

My boyfriend and I went for a Tomahawk Experience for our anniversary and we were so pleased with everything. We were served by Kadie and she’s kind, honest, accommodating and overall amazing. We’re very happy with everything and will definitely come back. Thank you for the card and free dessert as well!

Dinner with friends . First visit was three years ago at least.
They called day of reservation to ensure I understood our party of four at 7 on Saturday was only reserved for two hours. We arrived on perfect time and it was 20 min to get to a dining table (from bar) and then our nonalcoholic drinks were weak so they replaced. I’m very sure the staff aren’t trained to set up or serve food, other that to plunk it somewhere on the table which we were encouraged to rearrange to help them. Steaks were fine, not special and truffle fries were cold so replaced. Trying to light the candle to keep butter warm for seafood took four tries even when we lightly suggested a different candle. Wine again was plunked at the table and we self served. The worst problem was the unbelievable noise, which I think is part of the three open floors and high ceilings, not likely to change. I really dislike giving negative reviews, but offer this for customers to have realistic expectations of a very highly promoted and high priced restaurant. Final comment the place was not full and we’re weren’t rushed out despite the time limit they set.
