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.

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Ed was our waiter and he was great! He made several recommendations that were excellent. Other than the baked potatoe side (which was the size of a nerf football!) felt that they could have been bigger. 4 of us shared the sides and they were completely finished. The Japanese Wagu was too expensive and cost and we steered away from it. Will be coming back for sure!

Perfect place for an anniversary date night! Modern Steak on Stephan Avenue is your one-stop shop for outstanding food, service, ambiance specially made for Stampede week. All the extra attention to detail made it this special night even more memorable for us. Highly recommend it for your next date night or celebration.

Probably the best experience we’ve had in over 5 years. The staff was super helpful and interactive. The manager made some outstanding wine recommendations and we loved the steaks and beef tartare! We will absolutely be back as this our new favourite spot.

We decided to give Modern Steak a try as they offered a Wednesday night date night special and it was close to our hotel. The food was excellent. It was flavourful and the portions were good. Our server, Bruna J, was exceptional. She definitely enhanced our experience. She was friendly and provided the right amount of attentiveness. Plus, her suggestions were welcomed and spot on. We will definitely eat here again.

Great food and service but very pricey (food and wine for 4 over $800) Side dishes are very small compared to other high end steakhouses.

My steak was a little over cooked for medium but I didn’t worry about seeing it back. For a place with “Steak” in their name they could certainly use better steak knives! My index finger was sore by the end of the meal from using it to apply pressure while cutting. Same comment from my date.

Too much ribbon steak and not an overly tender piece of steak, mine was chewy. Salad and side dishes were good. Dessert was nothing to wrong home about. No ability to crest shade so I was stuck sitting in the blaring sun. Waiter was nice and attentive and ensured my water glass was full all the time. Staff walks a few feet past street balcony to smoke which then just goes right into the face of customers.

The food is very good but some things are quite over priced. Almost $15 dollars for a pretty small Caesar salad but it was a fantastic salad. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Took my bestie for "date night" on her birthday. There was a mix-up and we were not seated on the rooftop patio, which is why I gave a lower rating for ambiance. The streetside patio has no plants or anything, so not the prettiest environment, but they do have tableside heaters which were nice after the sun started going down. We ordered 2 "Grand 75"s and oysters to start, loved the citrusy, bubbly cocktail! Mignonette for oysters was underwhelming. Then we had the "date night" deal; 2 steaks, 2 sides and a bottle of wine for $80. We both had tenderloins from different ranches, and ordered the truffle Parm fries and brussel sprouts. All were delicious! We had the house red wine from Portugal and enjoyed that too. Service was friendly and prompt. The staff left a birthday card on the table for my friend as well, which was a nice touch. Would happily go back, next time to try the rooftop patio! Thanks Modern.

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!
