Diner Reviews
  • "Ordinarily I am not the type of guy would likes to spend a lot of money on dining out. But whenever I feeling like treating myself or others Vintage is always my spot. The food is always consistent and delicious, I recommend the cowboy cut prime rib, brocollini and lobster mashed potatoes. And the wine list is second to none. If you ever have a question about the wine list or need a recommendation Dean is your man, easily Calgary's best and friendliest sommelier."

  • "Dined at Vintage for the 4th time this past weekend and continue to be amazed at the stellar quality of the food and service. We've had a different server each time and each has brought their own charm and smarts to perfectly round out the whole dining experience. The food is so good just the aroma starts to work on your senses upon arrival at the table. You can't beat that. For us it's a bit pricey, but probably not by Calgary standards these days - and it is so worth it, without question. Can't wait till next time."

  • "We were overall impressed with our experience at Vintage. Although, I believe my boyfriend's steak and my steak were mixed up. I ordered medium rare, and he ordered medium - but he got medium rare and I got the medium. They were delicious though, so we didn't mention it to our server. The sides were wonderful, we especially loved the mushrooms and jalepeno corn. My oscar topping for my steak was to die for. Cocktails were very tasty as well. Overall, it was a great experience, and we will be back."

  • "This was the best restaurant we found in Calgary! Steaks delicious and the toffee pudding dessert fabulous (although it is NOT toffee or pudding). Wonderful way to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary!"

  • "man does that chef know how to cook short ribs. Flavor was unbelievable and melt in your mouth meat."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "ask them for it! (they'll offer it if its your first time) it's so educational and seeing the actual meat before it's cooked is pretty neat too!. great quality steak. i got the butchers block which is a special and i got the wagyu beef steak for $66 .. amazing!"

  • "We were celebrating mt husbands retirement. We were greeted at the door by 3 staff, seated immediately, water glasses on table constantly refilled, server was very professional, very prompt, not overly chatty - much better than most other spots. The wine selection was great, and well priced (which was expected, as they do not have a corkage policy so we couldn't bring our own ) The servers knowledge of the beef cuts was impressive, and the taste of our beef was fabulous. She recommended the Butchers block at med-med rare, we would have preferred it to be on the rarer side. The veg are served family style, and again, all were great, good flavour and not overdone."

  • "Our server Mike was phenomenal and he have good wine and cocktail recommendations. He was very pleasant and offered great information on the rest and menu. Our appetizers were phenomenal - oysters and the crab cake (though the bearnaise was really rich and unnecessary for the dish) but when our mains came we were totally underwhelmed! The night was saved by the amazing sticky toffee pudding, the ambiance and great service. But given the pricing, I'd expect a lot more! Similar establishments in other cities have always blown us away, Vintage was more a B+ than A+!"

  • "The food was amazing...maybe the best rib eye I have ever tasted! The family style sides were fun and delicious!! Service was superb and not at all intrusive. The atmosphere was perfect for a friends dinner or a romantic evening. I will be back."

  • "Vintage Chophouse was the perfect choice before heading off to a concert. Our server was attentive, professional and readily made suggestions when we were ordering. The result was an incredible dinner. Both the baked and the fresh mussels were fantastic. The rib eye steak was cooked to perfection, the steak tartar was outstanding and the sides (beets and asparagus) were great. It's hard to beat Vintage for great food and service!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "I found the service to be very good, especially as I had to return my steak because it was overcooked. The waitress and the manager apologized appropriately for the inconvenience, and I was not charged for the steak. I was less appreciative when I was told I was not ordering the 'correct' cooking level. I have been ordering steaks for many decades now and have never been disappointed in places that categorized themselves as 'real' steakhouses. The rest of the food was good, especially their tuna tartar appetizer and crunchy asparagus. Decent wine too."

  • "We are a younger down to earth couple. And we were treated at less value than the patrons around us. The food was good but it was upsetting that we were judged this way... You cant judge a book by its cover and when our server spent time talking and engaging with people around us and would not give us the same time of day and treat us equally. We were there for my fiances birthday and I felt horrible when we leave disappointed. we dont go out much especially to "upscale" restaurants but when we do we hope for some WOW in our experience."

  • "Been there a couple times in the last couple weeks. Both times the food quality has slipped. NOT the vintage I recall. The one thing I couldn't believe is to make sure the father's food should be spot on when it's father's day"

    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Menu was somewhat limited (especially appetizers and desert). Good wine list and selection. Steak that was ordered medium came out quite rare. Other steak (New York strip) was quite tough, especially with an inedible strip of gristle along the edge. Peppercorn sauce was very tasty, but not nearly enough of it (should have been double the amount). Service was very good. Desert was uninspired."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "Was a little disappointed with lunch, I had a Cobb Salad...it was OK, but the presentation was very plain, and so was the taste. I then had the lemon pie which was grainy, very odd. This was unusual as the last time I had it, it was fantastic. I think lunchs there are not the best, best to stick with steaks! I didn't mention this to the waiter as I've been there quite a few times and this was not the norm from my experiences. Service was excellent as always!"

  • "One of the best steaks I ever had ,professional and efficient service. I would recommend the shrimp and crab cakes for appetizer. We had the creme brulee for dessert and it was nothing special."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Uncomfortable, cold. Meat was good, service was horrible. When you're paying $50 for small piece of meat you would expect better service. Tried to ask for creamy blue cheese sauce - got dome gravy mud with "this is only blue cheese that we have". Was sitting half an hour with my hand raised - nobody paid attention. "

  • "The food was absolutely amazing! I only wish I could have ate more of it! We were so full for our steaks (mine was a salmon steak - too die for) and our sides (lobster mashed potatoes, truffle mac & cheese, and mushrooms), that we had absolutely no room for dessert!"

  • "I had traveled to Calgary many times in the past but never had the opportunity to dine here. My wife and I were on our way back from a meeting in Banff and took the opportunity to have dinner. We were certainly not disappointed in our choice to have a great dinner before flying to our next destination. Service was excellent and our food was prepared as we had ordered."

  • "The Vintage is a classic Steakhouse, great cuts of meat, unbelievable wine list and attentive service,It's the same group that owns Redwater Grille and Ocean Prime!! Its a gem."

  • "Vintage atmosphere and service is always fantastic. I was disappointed in the tuna I ordered (it was way overcooked) - I know what you're going to say "who goes to a steakhouse and orders fish" but I can't eat beef and don't want to deny the rest of my family. My husbands steak was overcooked as well & the other couple switched steaks as they got theirs wrong as well. Probably should of sent it back but everyone agreed the taste of the meat made up for the fact it was cooked wrong. "

  • "I went for a business lunch and it is a great location for the beltline crowd. Very male focused with dark wood and a bar on the right with short skirted waitresses. On the left were booths perfect for business meetings and the noise level was low, allowing for easy conversation. The food was good, better than the average Calgary fair. The salads were a good portion, soup and steak sandwich excellent and sliders very good. Only gripe, we had good service but when the credit card machine arrived it was preset with 20% tip. Either their not paying their staff properly and relying on tips, or they are relying on people being on expenses or not checking. "

  • "Vintage is always a fantastic experience. With so many Steak restaurants it can be a daunting task to choose one. Save yourself the time and misery of being disappointed elsewhere and just go to Vintage."

  • "My husband and I booked here to celebrate our 11th year anniversary. We had a later reservation but the host/hostess was nice enough to find an earlier seating for us. The drinks are stiff but really good. We received some complimentary sparkling wine for our special occasion. The main courses were delicious. My husband and I like to share appetizers and I found there wasn't much to choose from that we both liked. The waiter comes around and explains all the different cuts of meat before the meal which was really helpful. The tables are a little too close. You can overhear the people next to you which I found interesting but others might not like. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience."

  • "I wanted to go out for a nice dinner with some family from back east that were visiting so I chose Vintage Chophouse as it is usually pretty good. The food wasn't bad, the service was ok and the music which plays on weekend nights was too loud to sit and have a conversation. Normally I love sitting there listening to the music, it's usually blues music that I remember, but this band was a bit too loud for this venue."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We were six diners and everybody was delighted with their meal. The food was exceptional and the service impeccable. We always choose Vintage above all other restaurants when hosting folks from out-of-town, because we know we can count on a 'five star' dining experience and are leaving nothing to chance. The beef is outstanding (always cooked to perfection), the sides are generous, and the staff know very well how to make your dining experience memorable by giving attention to every small detail."
