THIS FOR THE STEPHEN AVE STREET PATIO | 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 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.

There was a table of super drunk screaming girls and our server seated us right beside them when there was lots of other tables. It was so horrible we ate and left within the hour. We were excited for this date night but cut it short because of the environment. The food was good, but we won’t be back

My boyfriend and I had our anniversary dinner here on their Wednesday date night! We had a blast! Sheldon, our server was fantastic! He brought us complimentary champagne, and took care of our desert. They wrote us a happy anniversary card which was so sweet! Sheldon took great care of us. He was knowledgeable and kind. The food was amazing! I highly recommend. The only thing I didn’t love was how quiet the music was. I felt like all I could hear was chatter. But that didn’t take away from the beautiful night we had. I’m glad we chose Modern Steak for our anniversary. We will definitely be back!!

We celebrated my fiance's birthday before restaurants were to shut down again. Everything was excellent, our server was amazing. We ordered a lot of different menu items and everything was awesome. The warm crab in a jar is my new favourite appetizer from any restaurant I've been. Thanks guys!

We booked Modern Steak, but got seated in their downstairs restaurant. (Modern Burger). Someone was trying really hard to be trendy with this decor, but missed the mark. It is so contrived and ugly, it detracts from their excellent steaks.

We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our 43rd Wedding Anniversary dinner at Modern. Food was excellent and our waiter Mathew was superb. Without hesitation I would recommend them as a great place to dine.

Went here for my partners 24th birthday. He received a birthday card from the team at modern steak and we were delighted and grateful for the kind gesture. Our waiter was very attentive with us and checked in regularly. The tomahawk special was very good and had a good fat to meat ratio. The creamy peppercorn sauce the waiter suggested turned out pleasant with our steak and we overall enjoyed everything. I’d definitely be happy to come back here again!

The service was extremely slow and getting our meals was slower. The steaks were okay.
It would be nice if for the price, the 6 ounce steak didn't look so lonely on the plate.
Perhaps once restaurants' can open at full capacity we would give it another shot. Perhaps.
As a side note even though the service was less than exemplary we tipped well to show our support for the staff that are continuing to work in these weird times.

Celebrating a 70th birthday at modern is our go to for all occasions.
Service was knowledgeable and the manager took the time to understand what kind of drink I was looking for and whipped up a specialty drink that was off menu. Seafood tower wasn’t a tower but it was grand and We’d order it again and the steaks were cooked perfectly.
Witty menu headers “intro course” and c&c mouse factory for dessert (much music 93 anyone).
Thanks for a great night!!!

Our waitress Barb was knowledgeable, prompt and friendly. She explained the concept of Modern Steak with enthusiasm and a desire to share - even though she has probably done this a thousand times. She explained the menu answer our questions, made suggestions. The beef dumplings are amazing! Our main arrived promptly and was wonderfully hot and cooked to perfection. From the bar tender, chefs and wait staff - were all fantastic. We are already planning another visit, hopefully with friends when the COVID restrictions ease.

We have eaten at Modern Steak, Stephen’s Avenue, several times. Since the Covid Pandemic began we have eaten there at least a couple of times for special occasions. The food is always outstanding and the service excellent. With Covid conditions I feel very comfortable and safe eating there. The distance from other diners, the mask guidelines that are in place and the sanitizing all contribute to my level of comfort. We chose to dine here on the 4th of March because the restaurant was offering a new special which did not disappoint.
