Steakhouse
Four key pieces separate us from a traditional steakhouse.

1) We only serve ranch specific Alberta Beef. That means we don’t serve beef from anywhere else on the planet. We know our farmers and ranchers personally and respect the hard work they put into produce our beef. We like our beef to be, hormone & antibiotic free and pasture raised. Happy cattle make for better steaks.

2) We are one of just a handful of steakhouses in Canada that serves, Grass-fed, Grain-fed, Wet-aged, Dry-aged and Wagyu beef 365 days a year. Our beef is always fresh never frozen.

3) We use an 1800o Infrared Grill to cook your steaks. Our grill stays at very consistent high heat versus a traditional open flame grill. The high heat creates a flavourful crust on outside of the steak and leaves a juicy centre.

4) Our décor is warm and modern. The tradition has always been dark wood, leathers and a muted palate for a steakhouse. We broke the mold and decided to add hand selected music that reflects us!

    Short and sweet… Steaks always consistent and perfect. Ambiance is amazing, I love the architecture of the dining room, hostess was friendly and no fake talks, manager respectfully came for quality and service check, music was delightful , timing was great, wine had great value for the buck, and service maintenance and mise in place was impeccable. Ryan is captivating if you talk to him, if you talk further, he is fascinating, because he’s very knowledgeable and got vast experience in the hospitality industry. It was a great pleasure and, as a bonus, we learn a bit with a wine connoisseur. And guys, bring back the lobster with mash, also an exquisite baked potato would be great, I mean, it’s great how it is now, but it doesn’t hurt to ask. Thank you!

    We had the Benchmark Filets which were done to perfection. They have a great selection of other cuts of beef we will be back to try. There is an extensive wine selection as well. A little loud, but otherwise very enjoyable.

    Steak was cooked perfect, sides were very tasty. Down fall was service was so slow for a night that wasn’t busy. Out server never checked on us, the gm cleared our plates and another server topped off our drinks. What could have been an 1.5 hrs dinner took 2 hours. Our server was just not attentive

    The AAA Black Apron sharing plate was delicious and well worth the price for the amount of food. The service was friendly and our server was always there when we needed, checking in at just the right time. We also enjoyed the complimentary meatballs as an appetizer...a nice added bonus. The only downside was that it was difficult to hear each other as we were seated in a smaller, more intimate area with a large and rambunctious table of 8 or 10 folks who were yelling quite loudly at times. But it was also new years eve so the restaurant was busy. Once the loud table left we enjoyed the atmosphere a lot more and could hear the music and each other.

    We went to Modern Steak Kensington for our anniversary dinner as it is located in the space formerly occupied by Café Calabash. Service was warm and welcoming. Despite the dress code stated as "smart casual" we were honestly shocked to see a man wearing a ball cap--not the restaurant's fault-- and servers in frayed jeans. Some wait staff were dressed more formally though. That jarred with the fine dining environment and experience. The prices being on the high end did provide good value although the separately priced sides detracted. Overall it was an enjoyable experience, although we wouldn't visit a second time.

    The food and service were excellent. We were placed in the middle of the restaurant next to a very loud Christmas party, which took away from it being a romantic dinner, but everything else made for a great dining experience.

    Modern steak house was pretty good. It took a bit to get service in the beginning as our server had other tables he was waiting on. I let our server know I was gluten and dairy free, unfortunately my broccoli I side came out with a sauce which had dairy in it. I already had eaten some of it when my server noticed and got it swapped out for one that didn’t have dairy. They tried to make up for it with free desert and coffee, which was quite nice of them to do, but because of this mistake I will not be going back.

    You walk in and you’re taken with the multi level beauty that await, you are seated promptly and appropriate, your server is prompt and gives you all the time you need whilst being near for questions, the good tool an appropriate amount of time to be delivered and my goodness was it exquisite. The Wagyu is perfect and buttery, the steaks are perfectly good every time, your sides are some of the best you’ll have while being simple (the truffle fries are a HUGE HIT) and the dessert was free for our special occasion. The price is to be expected for the quality of the food, I would visit again very soon. Thank you Modern Steak. I can hardly ever order a steak anywheres anymore, but you restored my faith in this.
