Steakhouse
No Children under 12yrs of age allowed.

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.

Modern Steakhouse always satisfies me for good food and excellent service, but only one comment was garlic piece was dropped when waiter cleared the dishes and even after coffee was serviced, but garlic piece was not removed from our table. A little disappointment.

They attended to my food allergies quite well. It can be hard to find a place to eat but they took it really well. Was the perfect place for a date night.

Our dinner was fabulous. We’re still talking about it days later! On the expensive side for us but we agreed it was worth a splurge for a family birthday. Geoffrey was our server; A+ service!

Did Valentine’s Day dinner a night later with a double date. Was very lovely. Side portions are a little small/ intro courses could have been a bit bigger for price. Service was excellent especially for a first time. Attention to detail was there with making sure drinks were refilled and table was monitored but not hovering.

food there is mostly pretty good, the 14oz steak kind over cook a little bit, and after we eat like 15 mins, the meat are all been cool down, not that good for taste, but the wine price is not really expensive, kind recommond to come to drink.
Good to plan a date and eat in the MODERN STEAK

The food was gorgeous and delicious. I would have given 5 stars but our servicer was lacking. Waters stay dry for over an hour and not much attention. The restaurant was 2/3 occupied so no excuse there. I would definitely recommend to everyone with the budget to eat there.

The best steak I have had in Calgary bar none. Cooked perfectly, excellent sear and cooked a perfect rare. Ordered the striploin and again, it was perfection. Where we lose points is the sides - the brussel sprouts were fantastic but everything else was mediocre. Poutine, mash, baked potato -- none of it was worthy of remark. The balsamic glaze on the plate with the steak also seemed to have lost character due to having not been freshly plated. Could be wrong but that is what it seemed like. Steak again though, perfect.

This restaurant is amazing. We went to the new restaurant and the modern decor was beautiful. Big open space intimate lighting and you could hear each other speak well. Our server for the night was Brandon and he was outstanding. Also a sommelier, he made great wine pairing suggestions. He informed us in detail about the origins of the meat we were ordering as well has how the meat is cultivated and prepared. He made excellent suggestions and it was all delicious. He suggested the Wagyu plate as we were 4 people and didn't know a lot about steak. We learnt about the complex preparation process and the different cuts of meat and even how the beef is raised in specific standards. It is not an inexpensive restaurant but they were very, VERY generous with what we ordered and I recommend Brandon and this establishment 200%

Modern is hands down the best steak house I have ever been to. One of the best meals I’ve ever had, with wonderful service and excellent ambiance. Prices vary so it won’t break the bank, either. It’s officially my new go-to spot for a meal downtown.

My boyfriend and I went for a date night.
First timers and we had a great time. The server was amazing, very knowledgeable and informed us about the local ranches and about wagyu! We had the wagyu tomahawk steak and ITS TO DIE FOR. Recommend this to anyone who loves steak and fine dining.
I wish I remember the servers name as he made the night great too with his personality and service.

Wait staff was excellent. One steak was undercooked, one overdone. At this price point it should be spot on. But generally a good experience.

This is a beautiful place. Sophisticated but still fresh and warm. The lighting could have been a bit darker. The food here is delicious. We started with the warm crab in an jar. Big sweet pieces of crab that have been soaking in a warm melted garlic butter. Served with lightly toasted bread. We also had the lobster cocktail and wagyu dumplings. The dumplings were a bit dry but tasty. The steaks are cooked beautifully and I appreciated their commitment to a more humane raised beef (though they don’t claim human certified. I ordered the best salad with goat cheese and a side of prawns. Definitely going back to try Modern Ocean.

Went here for our first time tonight on our anniversary. The servers and host made us feel so welcome and loved. George was our server, and he was AMAZING! We enjoy going out and trying out many restaurants in Calgary, and BY FAR George is the best server we have EVER had!! We appreciated all the little touches to make our anniversary even more special. Thank you so much Modern Steakhouse, you guys are absolutely Phenomenal, completely blown away from the AMAZING food to the AMAZING service.

I would recommend Modern Steak as an outstanding place to go and celebrate a special occasion or not - just go and try out. George and Brandon did an outstanding job in serving our table. It was my birthday and I feel that the Modern Steak team did an outstanding job on making my birthday dinner feel special and memorable. Thank you.

The appetizers are better than the main's... this isn't really a value for dollar establishment, and we are very happy to pay for a high end spot, however this is our second time this year at Modern Steak (we wanted to give it another try), and we won't be back. For the $$$ you will fork out there are WAY better steaks and meals in the city, and for a much better price point. If you can hit a happy hour here and share the crab in a jar that would be wonderful. And the service is truly outstanding!!! Otherwise rethink if you are seeking best steak in YYC. And do bring a wheel barrel of $$$. We were 2 adults + 3 teens, with a few glasses of wine and bill was near $450... Had a far superior meal at Notable for half of that (with a full bottle of vino!!)

A little disappointed in the NYE dinner.

I come to Modern Steak often and usually have the absolute BEST steaks, however our table found that our steaks were tougher and chewier than usual. We were not asked how we would’ve liked them done, or informed they would come medium rare which was unfortunate for a few guests at my table who don’t eat medium rare like myself. The steaks were still seasoned superbly, but the quality I have had previously at Modern Steak was not there.

We did not receive our drinks until after the amuse bouche and appetizers had already arrived. While tasty, the appetizers were also quite small.

For $100 I don’t feel that the value was worth it sadly. I have been more satisfied during a normal dining experience. The date night promotion is a much better value!

I would not necessarily recommend coming for a full course dinner, but I will continue to come on regular nights for my steak!

We went for dinner on New Year’s Eve. We had an early seating for 6:30. They really rushed you through as waiter mentioned they had four seatings. We had three course meal and we were done in just under an hour so that was really quick and took a bit away from the evening. However the salad (Caesar) was very good. The strip loin steak was cooked medium rare and it was perfectly prepared and tender. Dessert was less than desirable. It was a chocolate mousse cake and it was very dry. You could not cut it with a fork and needed a knife. Needless to say I never ate mine.
