Steakhouse
THIS IS NOT A ROOFTOP PATIO BOOKING | No Children under 12yrs of age allowed.

Our decor is warm and modern. The tradition has always been dark wood, leathers and a muted palette 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 in to 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 a 1800o Infrared Grill to cook your steaks. The high heat creates a flavourful crust on the outside of the steak and leaves a juicy centre.

Fantastic Weds Date Night! We tried 2 different striploin to see if we could tell the difference (which we could: both delicious, but subtle differences). The sides were inspired and generous (carrots and poutine). And since it's Shucktoberfest, we started with the most beautifully shucked oysters I've seen in a long time! Modern Steak has set the bar for food and service.

My first experience at Modern Steak, my boyfriend has been before, and we were celebrating his birthday with their weekly feature of “date night”. Two steaks, two sides and a bottle of wine. It was also shucktober fest so got in a few oysters for appetizers. The entire meal was delicious, both steaks cooked to perfection. Definitely recommend the oversized baked potato (it’s massive) and the heirloom carrots. The service was outstanding and beyond generous by comping a delicious creme brûlée for the celebration.

With a party of 20, the staff did an amazing job. Service was on point and the food was absolutely delicious. Having a wine connoisseur in house with wine tasting & pairings was a great bonus. Bronwyn was our server and she was outstanding. She Had plenty of knowledge and Was super helpful. We’re looking forward to going again!

Expensive for what you recieve. Portion sizes are super small. My steak was cooked perfectly to med rare however it was not that tasty. There’s was near 0 seasoning I’ve made better at home. Also 1 lobster tail for $40 is crazy however it was cooked well but comes with nothing at all. Just a boiled tail for $40. Service was good however and desert was good.

Had a great night!! Lovely service. Server was nice. She did seem to be in a hurry. However most of the meal was excellent, the Ribeye we ordered was just ok, it was a bit cold. and lacked some flavour. But all in all nice night.

It was our first time in Calgary and this restaurant exceeded our expectations! We really wanted a great steak and Modern Steak definitely hit the spot. We came to Modern Steak on Stephen Ave. The service was amazing and they were very hospitable. We ordered the Filet Trio, as per recommended by our waiter, and all three were delicious. We also ordered the octopus, mushrooms and broccolini, in which all were amazing too. We ordered the Primeras Vinas Malbec wine and loved loved loved it! Everything about this restaurant was amazing and we would definitely recommend it! A must go!

This restaurant is a gem in this city! We had the crab in the jar to start which was AMAZING. The rib eye steak was the best I've ever had in Calgary. Ypu are required to wear a mask until seated which is honestly no big deal. Service was fantastic. This will be my new go to steak place from now on. Simply superb!

The food exceeded our expectations. The jumbo shrimp were as good as you get in New Orleans. The rib eye and filet had wonderful seasoning, and were cooked to perfection. The price is on the high end, but the expense is well worth it!

The food was okay, nothing special. For the price point it wasn’t worth it. The steak wasn’t cooked to medium rare as requested. The poutine came out looking like it came from Mac Donald’s and they just shove it all on a plate. Did not look or taste appealing at all. For a fancy restaurant the food was disappointing. The service was good though

We were looking for a place to get a good Alberta steak and this is what we got. It was delicious, cooked right and with a decent price tag. We enjoyed the fact that the waitress took the time to explain where the animal comes from and that we get to choose. I would go again and recommend for sure.
