Steakhouse
No Children under the age of 12yrs allowed

Our decor is warm and modern. The tradition has always been dark wood, leathers and a muted palette for a steakhouse. We broke the mould and decided to add hand-selected music that reflects us! We’re more like Jay Z and less like Sinatra.

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 in to produce our beef. We like our beef to be, hormone & antibiotic-free and pasture-raised. Happy cattle make for better steaks.

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

We use an 1800o Infrared Grill to cook your steaks. The high heat creates a flavourful crust on the outside of the steak and leaves a juicy centre.

We enjoyed Date Night Wednesday - wine and steak special was just the perfect meal for the two of us. Our Server was excellent and took great and special care for any special requests or questions we had. The value was fantastic. At first we worried we'd not be able to drink the whole bottle of wine, but no worry...with sipping before our meal all the way to dessert ...it was the perfect amount for the two of us! "Our steaks were done exactly as ordered. Covid protocols were in place and obviously being followed. Felt very comfortable. So so so so nice to get out and have a meal made for us!

first time here and loved it. We definitely will return when restaurants open again. Service impeccable and the steak recommendations were delicious. Every part of the meal was wonderful. A great quiet, romantic atmosphere with amazing food. I hope this place can make it through the tough unfair restrictions on our restaurants.

Food was great as usual but uncharacteristically, the service was surprisingly disjointed.

Our sides came out late enough that my steak was cold and we had the hostess looking after us for half the meal and eventually a waiter for the rest of the meal.

Not the usual service but maybe they were slammed due to pending Covid pending restrictions coming?

All in all good great, atmosphere great both as usual but the mix up with our sides really detracted from the usual experience.

We were in town for business and decided to go for a tomahawk. The cook and flavour was perfection. Excellent customer service and the manager introduced herself and checked in with us.

The staff was friendly and the menu has some great choices with a great concept farm/ranch to table. The Sunday tomahawk special is for sharing and boasts a tomahawk ribeye for two with two sides for $99. The issue was not the quality of the meat, it was the fact it wasn’t a tomahawk ribeye at all. The cut was a sirloin roast with a bone laid beside it on a plate, with no ribeye to be found! The sides were rather pathetic in size and depth of flavor. It wasn’t a great value for the price and it wasn’t a deal at all.

A great meal and Date Night is an amazing value. We were a little surprised though when we were given a 7-10 minute warning that they wanted our table vacated when we had only been there for an hour and a half, and had ordered after dinner drinks. We’ll be back, but now that we know you only get 1 1/2 hours for dinner we know what to expect and won’t order the extra drinks. I don’t like feeling rush, but the food was excellent!

Modern Steak is one of our go to favourites, the service is amazing and steaks are delicious. Thanks to Jeff for always taking great care of us.
We tried the dumplings for the first time and I could honestly eat a dozen of them, they were amazing.

Pretty disappointed with the overall quality of the food, marketed as a top end steakhouse I decided on the $84 waygu ribeye which I was told should be like butter and to be ordered “medium” so I did, it showed up under cooked, closer to rare they took it back after a few bites and recooked it to more medium. The texture however still chewy and tough definitely not like butter and definitely not worth $84, at this point we were running out of time for our table and told our table is booked so I kept it and carried on. Overall I’m not sure I will return. Also not sure if these get read, but with COVID and us wanting a nice dinner after being locked insider for what seems like a year, frankly this restaurant didn’t hit the mark. The Keg would have been better and a 1/3 of the price.

We have been wanting to try Modern Steak for some time; unfortunately, it was not the experience we were hoping for. A bowl of dry, tasteless popcorn does not replace some good bread (none) and the 'steak' itself did not have a pleasant appearance (brown) and was quite tasteless; we were very glad we had ordered bearnaise! The best part of the meal was the parmesan, truffle fries; however, the good fries did not compensate for the outrageous price we paid for a very 'ordinary' meal!
