Our decor is warm and modern. The tradition has always been dark wood, leathers and a muted palate for a steakhouse. We broke the mould and decided to add hand selected music that reflects us! We’re more like Jay Z and less like Sinatra.

We only serve ranch specific Alberta Beef. That means we don’t serve beef from anywhere else on the planet. We know our farmers and ranchers personally and respect the hard work they put into produce our beef. We like our beef to be, hormone & antibiotic free and pasture raised. Happy cattle make for better steaks.

We are one of just a handful of steakhouses in Canada that serves, Grass-fed, Grain-fed, Wet-aged, Dry-aged and Waygu beef 365 days a year. Our beef is always fresh never frozen.

We use an 1800o Infrared Grill to cook your steaks. The high heat creates a flavourful crust on outside of the steak and leaves a juicy centre.

Private Dining

Whether celebrating a special occasion with family and friends or hosting a corporate outing, Modern Steak can accommodate all your special event needs.

Probably the best meal we’ve had in a long time. The steak was unbelievable, but the sides stole the show. Amazing meal!

I am a big fan of Modern Steak and it’s concept but I found my ribeye very tough and not tender at all. My daughter experienced the same with her striploin. Very disappointed. I will reconsider before going again as there are so many other options available.

Service was perfect, the steak was beyond delicious, the lobster was just ok. Would definitely go back for a special occasion. The husband was very happy with his birthday dinner, the birthday card from the restaurant was a nice touch.

Took a while for a server to approach our table, and even though we were in a nice, private corner that meant we didn’t get the same service other tables were. Overall food and drinks were delicious, and we didn’t feel too cramped in.

The service was great, but overall the price points are too high. For the price ranges, I was expecting a real "wow" factor when it came to the food, but it was just ok to good. 2 glasses of wine, appetizer and mid range steak was just over $100 for one person. Nice to try this restaurant once, but I probably won't return.

It was ok! Both of our steaks were cooked medium on the outside and medium rare on the inside - we asked for medium. The steak was tasty though. The wine was too pricey for 5oz glasses and was over charged to boot (was corrected once we noticed and said something). Service was great. Nice sides.

Very poor food quality - especially given the cost. Server appeared overwhelmed and frustrated (our table was 6 adults). My steak was cold (at a cost of $59) and my friend received an incorrect cut. He was given it for free and the kitchen remade his original order. When it arrived it was undercooked. Another friend (who was drinking only pop) waited until everyone else’s bar order arrived to receive his drink (including ppl who had shown up AFTER he ordered). All of these things would be more forgivable if not for the high cost per plate. If you pay $60+ per plate you expect everything to be cooked right and service to be on point. This was not.

A friend and myself did the food and drink experience menu selection. The appetizer was good but the steak was terrible. It was grizzly and tough. We mentioned it to the server and to the girl who we paid and were basically dismissed. We also overhead another table complain. We were very disappointed and will not go back.

We were seated next to the bar and it was a little noisy. Would request a table farther away next time.
Food was great and our server Rachelle was absolutely great.
Would absolutely go back.

We went for the set meal that was part of a special dining event and we were not disappointed. Great steak, the appetizer and dessert were both wonderful complements, and the wine pairing went very well with the meal. Note that this was a special event with a really great price point on the meal.

Each course was perfect in size, flavour and presentation. The steak was one of the best I’ve had at a restaurant in a very long time.

Also have to commend the competent and friendly service. Our waitress demonstrated ninja skills in her ability to refill and delivery without our noticing.

Looking forward to going back again soon.

Generally the restaurant is nice. It has a cosy atmosphere.

The service was great, on par with what you would expect from a steak house.

Good wine selection across a broad price range.

We had an appetiser and some sides with our steaks - all were excellent, but that's not why you go to a steakhouse.

I had the modern steak ribeye. It was not tender and the fat content seemed way closer to a sirloin. There was no buttery fat anywhere to be found and there was some gristle. Definitely not what I expected, but that's not to say it was terrible. Would not say it was worth $60. To be fair, I did not ask the waiter for a new steak.

The Mrs. had a tenderloin, which was slightly under cooked, but the kitchen resolved it without issue.

It pains me to say this but I've had better steaks at the keg.

Sean.

Jeff our server was well informed re: menu and different qualities of steaks. Dinner was for 4 and all were impressed with the service, quality of food. We had a booth on the lower level very comfortable on a cold cold night.
Coat check employees working in too small an area but functioned well. I was disappointed no one was tipping the hard working gals.

I have known of modern steak for over a year now but I had not had a reason to go. I finally went there for a date and was immediately greeted by a friendly host. She took out coats and lead us to our table. Our server was excellent. He read our table, gave us a knowledgeable walk through of the menu and gave us an excellent wine recommendation. He ensured that our table was doing well, constantly refilling our waters and wine glasses. The food was tasty (I fell in love with the butternut squash) and the steak was amazing. The ambiance of the restaurant was amazing, the decor was great and the music was at a good level. While it is on the pricy side it is a great place to go and experience if you haven’t. Could see it being a great place not only for a date but for groups. Will be back soon. P.S. (I can’t remember our servers name, maybe it was mark? But he looks like he’s in he’s 30s with dark hair, he made our experience great )
