MODERN STEAK on Stephen Avenue
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.
Amazing food and service.
Great place for a business lunch! Has options for all types.
Great experience! Highly prefer for any occasion.
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.
Fantastic service and a wonderful lunch menu! Thanks George!
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.
Went for my birthday with a large group in the private area. Food was outstanding as always and service was great. Highly recommend this place.
we had a fanastic experience; great atmosphere; food was good; service was excellent; ask for george, he will look after 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!!)
The 4 course NYE menu was outstanding! Our server was very knowledgeable on the liquor menu and had great recommendations. Each course came out very quickly and everything tasting amazing. We will definitely be back!
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.
We enjoyed our first experience at Modern Steak very much with our two teenaged sons. George was an exceptional server with a great personality, sense of humour and knowledge of the menu. The food was delicious!
An amazing experience and service. Thank you for making our night magical
Wonderful all around and particularly great service!
Rushed, inconsiderate, and unenthusiastic service, absent concierge.
My wife and I had a great time, thoroughly enjoyed the food and the server was delightful.
We’ll definitely be going back as there is much more on the menu I want to try!
Our server was George and he was fantastic. He was helpful, knowledgeable and clearly enjoys his job. He made us feel welcome and contributed greatly to our dining experience.
George was a fantastic waiter and the service was perfect. Thank you!
This was our first time at Modern Steak Stephen Ave and it did not disappoint! We went on a Wednesday night so we took advantage of the Date night special. The sides were small so we did opt to pay for an extra side (the Brussels sprouts and mushrooms were AMAZING!).
The staff were great but a special shout out to our server, George. He was informative about the menu, friendly and just an all around great addition to our date night. We will definitely request him the next time we go!
Our waiter, George, was fabulous! From the moment we sat down he greeted us warmly, gave us options for our food order, reviewed the main course items, side dishes and had our drinks on the way.
The evening was to celebrate our daughter’s 16th birthday. George brought her a baked Alaska dessert at no charge - a great way to end the evening.
The food was great as well as the ambiance.
We plan to return for our son’s birthday in January.
Staff were knowledgeable and made sure we were taken care of. Always checking in and filling water etc. They were on point and made for a great evening out.
Our waiter Brendan ( I believe) was so attentive informative and amazing !
We came in for our 10th anniversary dinner. We had an amazing experience: superbe service, amazing food and recommendation from our service. This was an exceptional date night dinner and a perfect prelude to the proposal that came later that night! :)
Server was exceptional. Steak was great!!! Entertaining clients and I was told they absolutely loved it. Thank you!!
Great atmosphere and the best steak in the city. I strongly recommend "All the Waygu Super Platter"!
It was a birthday. Food was great and service was awesome!
Server was well informed and attentive. Explained the various cuts and grades clearly and her pairing suggestions were spot on. Great meal and overall dining experience.
Streaks were fantastic, sides were hire light and we had 4 sides plus the risotto
Service was bad.
Situational awareness of waitresses was so low that she insisted on continuing an explanation of a food item that multiple people at our table had told her they couldn’t cope with and was off putting.
We would have ordered dessert but the waitress walked away to attend to another table halfway though a question about the dessert offerings.
Food was good but I don’t understand how this level service is viable.
The food was awesome. The waiter was good, not quite 100% knowledgable on all the food item questions our table had. Didn’t really impact the meal though. Just wasn’t as polished as a waiter at Hys or Vintage. I would go back.
The steak Caesar salad entree I had was perfect. Everything, the way the steak was cooked, the size of the steak was great. My husband had the beet salad with local organic beets from Poplar Bluff and the octopus which were both delicious. We were heading to the theatre after so they expedited our service. We shared a half bottle of wine and finished the meal with limoncello. Service was great, decor was pleasing, modern and bright and the noise level was tolerable.
Top notch service and incredible food! Definitely a must visit.
Thank you so very much for providing such wonderful service to the team last Thursday. Our friends at Travel Alberta and Infuencer guests from China had a wonderful time. We so appreciate the team at Modern Steak for being so wonderful to work with and providing such outstanding service. Thank you!
In town for the Grey Cup and really glad we chose this restaurant, excellent service - very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The atmosphere is cool (modern and chic), and the food choices were excellent and perfectly cooked. Next time we are in Calgary will definitely go back - especially to take advantage of the upstairs patio when the weather is nicer! Check this place out.
Any time our co-workers are in from Texas, this is where always want to go. Our server Brendan was attentive and didn't skip a beat.
We started with 2 large tartares, ceasar salad and waygu dumplings - Tartares are by far best in the city and Brendan brought more chips when we ran low; my boss wouldn't share any dumplings, but wanted more, so i'll say they're 5 stars. For mains we had the flat iron, 10oz filet with bacon jam, bison ribeye, and striploin and for sides we had mashed potato, truffle fries, hash, brussel sprouts. Plates were licked clean - enough said.
18th birthday. He was very happy and enjoyed meal
Very excited to celebrate my birthday here! Great food, great wine, great venue. A little busy and tight quarters but everyone had a great time. Appreciated the local sourcing of beef, including options to try out variety of cuts / sources. Definitely high on my list of top steak houses in Calgary.
My husband and I celebrated our 20th anniversary at Modern Steak and they did not disappoint. They were attentive, congratulated us verbally and with a signed card, and the food was amazing! We had the steak trio with shared side dishes and the steak melted in our mouths! Wonderful date night and we will definitely return!
