I was looking forward to going to Modern Steak as I heard good reviews but honestly I was disappointed. For the price I paid my steak was far from satisfactory. I had to wait an an hour & a half for my steak and it was over-cooked. (I requested medium rare). I have much preferred my steaks at The Keg

We were celebrating our anniversary and everything was perfect. Our server Braunwyn was exceptional. She was knowledgeable and her timing was spot on, as were her recommendations. We started with the octopus appetizer that was so delicious and the filet trio beat our expectations. We will definitely be back soon.

Steak was absolutely fantastic. We went for the date night special and were treated fantastically.
Because we didn’t try any of the really high end steaks it felt like just a normal steakhouse.

Went to Modern for a group birthday celebration. Arrived at the table and a birthday card was there from the restaurant. A very nice touch
Service was excellent and the food was the high quality I would expect of an Alberta steak house.
Steak was perfectly prepared and the sides were great.
Overall a fantastic experience at a high end steak house

Wednesday date night is an incredible deal - I go with friends fairly often and we always enjoy it. We had a table at 9pm, so it wasn't very busy and our steaks arrived quickly after ordering. Their truffle fries are the best ones in town, crisp and delicious. Steaks were cooked perfectly to temperature and very tender. Can't go wrong with Modern Steak!

The meal was amazing, but a little pricey. $297 for 2. We had one drink each, 1 glass of wine, an appetizer, and a steak dinner for 2.

Marginal dining experience, service doesn’t match the price of the food. Wasn’t able to order wine to have with our meal until we were almost done our meal and it didn’t arrive until we were done eating. Steak wasn’t cooked to preference and was eventually taken back to the kitchen to be heated up and brought back rather than being replaced (as we would expect at a restaurant that is supposed to be top notch) we did receive a discount on the steak when all was said and done. As people who have eaten at many high end steakhouses all over the world we were definitely disappointed in the overall experience here.

For me this is an expensive restaurant. However for a special occasion it was worth it! The food was amazing. Service was great, and the ambience was cool. Because we had a birthday in the group (well, 2 of them) the restaurant offered a free dessert. When they found out we didn’t want dessert, they discounted our bill for the approximate amount a dessert would have been. Very nice gesture!!

Waiter was good and very accommodating to special requests.
Enjoyed the cocktail
For a ranch specific restaurant, there should have been a legend that discussed the details of the husbandry, processing, aging and other factors of which they are clearly proud. The waiter did answer questions on those factors but we needed to ask.
The other staff did not appear to know the origin stories of the meats or salts for instance.

In short for those who want to know, the experience could have been more engaging and better honour the producers/ranchers

Some of the best steak I've had in a while, if you're a savory lover, this is terrific! Seldom that I ever really notice a difference in quality of the meat too... high end/mid range, it's typically similar... this was noticeably better. Nice work :)

Disappointing comes to mind after this last experience at Modern Steak. We visited before at the Kensington location and had their Valentine's take menu and wanted to try out the Stephen Ave location.

We were there to celebrate my wife's 45th and the plan was dinner and a movie, y es cliche but with COVID, it was a safer bet. Things started off good. We ordered, got our drinks and appetizer, then the long wait for our main course ensued. We ordered the Fillet Trio with scallops and 2 sides (baked potatoe and mash potatoes).

It was about an hour by the time our steaks came at 9:07. Our movie started at 9:30 so we had them pack up our dinner. As it was my wife's birthday celebration, she was really looking forward to enjoying a dessert, but it was definitely a no go. I can't sit through a long movie without having had anything to eat, so we got our tickets refunded and went home to eat what was packed. The baked potoate was overcooked, scallops were really small for the price and overall my wife was so disappointed. She didn't get to enjoy the meal as intented and we didn't get to see the movie.

The waitress took off our two drinks and appetizer from the total bill, and we left a decent tip despite the experience.

Our server Barb was exceptional and her service made up for the otherwise subpar food. We were given cold plates to eat on - at such an establishment warm plates should have been a no brainer. We ordered the wagyu tasting menu. At almost $400 you'd think the presentation would be better. They presented us with 3 pieces of steak lumped on 1 plate. People eat with their eyes first and this was not the best first impression. Plate was unsurprisingly cold. Steaks themselves were alright. We think the $54 tasting menu would have been a better bet in such a restaurant. The sides (baked potato, brussel sprouts, mushrooms) were nothing to write home about. We also ordered a side of scallops and octopus. Scallops were ok. Octopus was tough and chewy. Dessert was great- you can't really mess up a baked Alaska. Overall this was an underwhelming experience. Perhaps you would do better with their tasting menu or their more classic Alberta/Canadian steaks.

Used to be my favourite restaurant but not anymore. Came for my birthday and was not happy, all of our steaks were tough and my was extremely rare and not mid well. Asked for another did not receive it for 45 mins I was the only one not eating. It wasn’t busy. Very disappointed.
