Vintage is one of my favourite big-steak nights. The food is always exceptional; the meat is always exceptional grade, perfectly seasoned and prepared; and the service is always personal and friendly. Add to that a great wine list and it's always a memorable occasion.

I don’t think I’ve had better service anywhere else. We went with a group of 6 people for my husbands birthday which I noted on open table. When we got there they made a birthday card for him with signatures from everyone!! The food was great and I like how they show/explain the cuts of meat.
We had an amazing time and next special occasion, we will be back!

Visited the VC&T while in town for a business conference following a recommendation in the hotel magazine. We were not disappointed as even though it was a Monday night the restaurant was lively, the service staff all excellent and the food and wine recommendations from the waiter excellent too. Would definitely go again.

Visited the restaurant for an anniversary dinner. Service perhaps a bit cold and more in line with meals having a business purpose and this makes sense with a downtown location. Food was delicious and server assisted in providing suggestions / choices when asked and happy with all selections. Sides are of generously sized portions, quite enough to share between two people. Tenderloin cooked to perfection. Recommend the Brussels sprouts and truffle mac and cheese. The pre-dinner rolls are heavenly!

Made a reservation for our anniversary. We never been there before. They brought out a board with all their steaks that they serve and explained each one to us. We opted for the porterhouse steak. Best steak we’ve ever had, cooked and seasoned perfectly.

After rave reviews from several friends we decided to go here for my husband’s birthday. Unfortunately we we disappointed with many aspects of our experience. We had an 8:15 sitting and (due to a large table) we didn’t eat until 9:38. Our sever tried to explain this to us when he dropped off the second basket of bread and apologized.
My wine tasted oxidized so I requested our server ask the bartenders if it was an older bottle or just opened this evening. He did take it away and replaced it for me.
When our food did arrive my steak was not med-rare but rather blue (slimy texture was a big problem for me). But we were so hungry and I felt bad about complaining about the wine that I just ate what I could and brought the rest home for our dogs. :(. My husband ordered the Wagyu Beef though and it was tasty.
I had clearly put “birthday” on reservation and that was obviously not reported to our server.
Just overall we were disappointed for the price point and the type of experience we received.

Excellent food and service. Best of all, no minors allowed. It’s not often you can go to a restaurant these days without having kids nearby so this is a great place to go for those times when you want to enjoy a birthday or anniversary dinner and leave the kids at home for the night.
Steaks are outstanding here. The fresh buns to start of the meal were so fresh and they were almost better than the steak.

It was a pleasure to visit once again Vintage Chophouse. This classic fine dining establishment checks off every box perfectly. My partner and I enjoyed the tenderloins which were prepared perfectly. As I raised the knife to cut into the 8 ounce steak, it felt as if the blade would simply melt through the meat, it was so tender. We elected to try the new blistered snap peas which were lightly seasoned. These were crisp and bright to the taste. Our second side was the honey roasted carrots. Honey makes a perfect sweetener for carrots as it doesn't overshadow the clear carrot flavour of the bright orange and pale yellow carrots used in the dish. To finish we enjoyed a shared key lime pie. I have enjoyed KLP in many places in the south, and Vintage's can easily rival those with it's balance of sweetness and tartness. But the meal is only half of the pleasure (albeit a fabulous half!). The service and ambiance remains stellar. In a city full of noisy bistro style restaurants, Vintage stands out as a unique establishment to share the dining experience with a special person, family members, or colleagues without having to shout across the table. Looking forward to our next visit.

Linden our server was excellent and was always on hand to make recommendations. The food was AMAZING and we found the portion sizes to be just the right amount.
We appreciated that our large group was taken care of after our meal where a booth in the other side to the restaurant was held for us to enjoy the wonderful band they had playing.
This experience was beyond excellent and we will definitely be returning. THXS:)

The food and service was spectacular! We were celebrating our 19th anniversary and our server reserved a table for us in the lounge for after our meal. We listened to the live band and had dessert. We were unaware there is live music every weekend! Highly recommend both sides of this amazing restaurant. We have a fantastic night!

A mostly classic menu executed really well. We shared the prime rib with peppercorn sauce and lobster mac and cheese, as well as a side of bone marrow butter to go with the bread. Everything was rich and delicious. Service was excellent. Would come again for a special occasion.

I brought my dad here for dinner to celebrate his 61st birthday. He had never been before and I had been a couple times prior. I have always been extremely impressed with the food, service, wine and atmosphere and this evening was no different.

We shared the Wagyu steak with honey carrots and scalloped potatoes and everything was cooked to PERFECTION.
The service was exceptional, the cocktails were exceptional and the wine and meal was again, exceptional. My dad was so impressed, he noted the meal as the best steak in the city (which I would agree)! He said from now on when he has company come to Calgary, he will be taking them to Vintage from now on!

All around I would give Vintage a 10/10 because it is consistent, delicious and always a fantastic experience!
