MODERN STEAK on Stephen Avenue
Great service, fantastic wine list and of course a fabulous steak!
We always enjoy our dining at Modern Steak. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Ryan was our server Thursday. He had a nice wine recommendation and our steaks were done to perfection. Half price wine Thursday- can’t beat it!!
The food was fine but underwhelming given the price point. Our server was great. The food runner was unpolished and awkward. He came back to the table twice to tell us he had forgotten to tell us something.
Lovely way to celebrate a birthday! We got Flatiron steaks, and the portion sizes were just right! The truffle popcorn was a great treat.
Amazing night out with my hubby! Barb was fantastic, food was amazing and well priced. The only down side was that after I tasted my hubby’s steak tartare, I was sad that I did not order it! We had a great meal and will be back for sure. The renovation really modernized the space making it bright and airy.
My party and I ordered wine, appies and main as well as a dessert and everything was amazing however I didn't love my scallops dish. Don't get me wrong it was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing but as for the cucumber and hummus underneath I didn't much care for that particular combination. I supposed it just didn't appeal to me but again the scallops on top was cooked beautifully and the crab appetizer wash delicious. My friends and I enjoyed our time there and Brenden our server was fantastic. I will definitely come back again. Thank you for a great experience!
Wednesday Night “Date Night” special includes a beautiful meal and a great bottle of wine for $ not your typical $$$$. The food and service was fantastic! We also recommend ordering the Baked Alaskan ... absolutely fantastic dessert!!
Food quality was awful for the price you pay. Everything was drenched in butter and salt. 100.00 for two appetizers and two 5oz house wines.
I’ve been to Modern Steak in Kensington so was familiar with the cuisine and service. Modern Steak on 8th Avenue didn’t disappoint either. Steak was outstanding and service from Kyle was superb!
The food was absolutely amazing, and the service was even better! We will definitely be back, and I would for sure recommend to friends and family!
Atmosphere is nice, service was very good, but food came out cold. Didn't want to complain so just went with it. However for the cost, I guess we should have said something.
The food and service were expectional! We will back for sure.
Our waitress was superb---very knowledgable and great personality. We were very disappointed with the food being a restaurant specializing in meat. Two ordered shortribs that were dry and extremely fatty--more fat than meat! One ordered meatless shepherds pie which was enjoyed. Two ordered halibut which was delicious and moist. My husband ordered steak which was only mediocre. truffle popcorn was a nice touch. Our bean side was delicious. Desserts were outstanding! Unfortunately because your specialty is steak I would not recommend it to anyone coming to you for meat. It was our 44th anniversary party and it was very unmemmorable. Just being honest!
I found the server to be a bit aggressive - they were not very happy when we did not order alcohol or large meals.
Our server, Dana, was absolutely amazing. Professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Food was great and Satish, was really helpful and friendly.
Had a great time, until the very end. The waiter went from being a nice guy to being extremely rude. After paying the bill, the waiter through my wife’s credit card up on the table and seemed very unappreciative. He turned a very special night in to an embarrassment for me and my guests. I don’t even recall him saying thank you or have a goodnight. He just walked away. We rarely dine out downtown but wanted to make this a special night for our guests and because of this experience, we will not be returning customers. Food was great but quite pricey. Not a place for a commoner looking to splurge for just one special night out, and it was quite evident at the end of our dining experience in how we were treated.
Very good food but very expensive. No smaller options for smaller appetites. Smallest red meat offering is 6oz. Adding a protein to your salad doubles the price. Even with half price wine, two salads -one with protein - and an appetizer, lunch for two came to $150. Would have been $200 if not for the wine deal.
Amazing! We went for the date night special and didn't think it would be fabulous because of the great values, 2 steaks, 2 sides and a bottle of wine for $79! Not only was the food and wine fabulous, we paired it with a cocktail and a few oysters and the entire evening was just perfect! Our server was very knowledgeable about our food options and wine and super friendly. We will be back for sure!
Our server, George, was both attentive and entertaining. It was a great experience on all sides.
Great atmosphere, excellent service. Really yummy food!
We felt the restaurant was too loud.
We would have stayed longer but it wasn’t the romantic feel we were looking for.
Very expensive for the experience we were looking for. The ambiance was no better than cactus club...
We expected more for the value.
This was a perfect evening for my sister and I. The atmosphere was perfectly comfortable, staff genuinely friendly and happy and the food superb.
Had a wonderful evening at Modern . Food was very very good , the service was very very good , our waiter was very informative and fun loving . Everything was over the top and the Benchmark steaks were so flavorful and tender . For sure we will be back !!!
Ordered the candied salmon salad as a meal and there were 3 tiny slivers of salmon in the dish. We walked away starving. The server should have informed us that it would be best as an appetizer and to order more food. Pricey for the lack of salmon, even though the rest of the salad was tasty.
My colleague and I had lunch upstairs and had 2 amazing bowls of the truffle popcorn (she'sd addicted). I had a few new items: Pan Pacific Waygu meatloaf and the summer salad and my colleague had the steak frites. Everything was amazing and service was impeccable. My colleague said she would have to bring the hubby back. Can't wait to come back and try the other new items.
Our server, Brendan was phenomenal. Food was delicious and we had a wonderful time.
Excellent! Definitely going back! Best steak hands down and our waiter was awesome!
Best steak ever. The service was great and the ambiance very pleasant.
I will recommend Modern Steak to others however I want to say that I think it is a little expensive so I cannot come very often.
Mother’s Day meal was great. The service was a bit slow but the food was amazing.
The staff was amazing and their attentiveness was superior to other restaurants. The food was mediocre some dished amazing some quite disappointing. For the $400+ bill, there are other restaurants such as Ruth Cris or Charcut where I would feel more value for the dollar. Also, there was like 3 menus provided which was confusing. Other than that, great wine selection, loved the care and attention the bartender took in preparing the drinks.
The food was excellent. Thursday is 1/2 price bottles of wine! Brendon has been our server for the past 2 visits and he is excellent! Ask for his section when you make reservations. The ribeye was a little better than the filet tonight, however both were still excellent.
The service was a bit lacking. The server that was taking care of us totally forgot about the oysters that we ordered as an appie... and realized he forgot after we asked about it 45 mins later. We knew that ordering a Tomahawk steak would take longer to cook, but oysters...?
The food was amazing and delish- highly recommend going here for the tomahawk and the baked Alaska, even with the so so service.
Wonderful restaurant. server George Morrison was outstanding
We came as a party of 8 people with the intention of not holding back. We all enjoyed several appetizers before getting into our main courses, followed by dessert. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed all of the food from start to finish. The atmosphere was very pleasing. All of the staff that we encountered was very welcoming and helpful, especially Nick, our server. Nick took time to explain the menu in detail and helped with recommendations for food and wine. He made it feel as if we were his only table (we were not), and was friendly and personable the entire evening. The whole evening was great thanks to the fantastic food and great service!
Best steak in town !!!! Very tender and delicious....
Best steak in all the land!!!! Will definitely come again!!!
Wow! This was a great experience! Probably the best service of any restaurant in town (our server was Stuart). He was attentive, knowledgeable, made recommendations, explained the different types of beef etc perfectly. The food was excellent, we had the Modern steaks and sides were perfect. It was a very busy night with large group reservations so our table was right in the middle by larger tables so noise level was quite high but once the experience started we forgot about that.
Excellant food and service wholly recommend if you really want good alberta beef
Very attentive service and detail explanations of the menu. The server was great and the food was even better. I will be back.
