Initial impression of the building is very unique from the outside and in. We were greeted quickly and sat down. Host/servers were all very friendly and helpful with the menu. Menu variety is impressive and so well thought out. I was a big fan of the citrus and sour tones throughout. Very refreshing. The Crudo and the Prawn toast were standouts for me. Recommendations and introductions of each plate was awesome. Most impressive aspect was the speed of service. Each plate was brought out one after another at a perfect pace. Crudo took maybe 5 minutes - so good because my partner and I were starving. Would definitely come back to try the rest of the menu. Thanks for the great evening Bar Gigi!

About the restaurant
Welcome to a modern and luxurious take on a classic steakhouse. We are honored to have partnered with Vintage Group to bring to life a dining experience, unlike anything you have ever seen in Calgary. Chairman’s Steakhouse embodies the glitz and glamour of Old Hollywood; the days of the Rat Pack and Frank Sinatra. A tribute to this iconic era brought to life by Alvin Westman’s fedora hat is a symbol of a time where everyone knows your name. Join new friends and old at Chairman’s Steakhouse.

We have been at Chairman's on several occasions and we are never disappointed - Our guests from out of country were very impressed with the food especially the large porterhouse steak cooked to perfection along with the exceptional service from Brian. Kudos to the staff/management team for creating a restaurant that we can be so proud in our Mahogany community.

Absolutely fantastic place to go for Tequila drinks! The mixologist was on point for each drink. The level of service was fantastic! The charcuterie board was delicious and fed 4 adults easily. I highly recommend this place and we will be back to try more drinks.⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
