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.

Nice food, steaks were absolutely great,,, Parmesan fries,, Heaven.
Waiter, eye on every finger, nothing to say there.

A shame that the bearnaise sauce was cold and the loaded mashed potatoes had a taste of powder mash potatoes, not fluffy at all,,, compact and narggh, not the best.

But all in all, we would come back again for sure.

Anniversary dinner with my wife. Attentive, pleasant service. Nice to have the manager check in briefly.

Alberta-grown steak was excellent! Baked Alaska for desert was perfect. Nice to have Calgary Craft beer available as well.

First-timers. We’ll be back!

As always Modern Steak in Kensington was a delightful experience. After a long day it’s a pleasure to eat food that is made with such care and comes from reputable producers. I always enjoy the service, which leaves me without any wants or needs.
I will continue to return, being guests and celebrate with Modern Steak.

It was overall quite pleasant. The girl greeted us right away and showed us to the table. It was nice, a little dark but nice. I guess i was not a fan of the Flat Iron steak .. which now i know. And the Caesar salad had a few brown bites in it, so we mentioned that as it was a $14 salad with not much to it. She corrected it and was very pleasant about it.

We had the Filet Trio and it was amazing. Perfectly cooked and great to see the difference between the three farms. Tristan was a fantastic, energetic, engaged host. Calling him a server would downplay the experience we had with him as our table host. This was an incredible meal and made our anniversary special. One that we will remember and try to repeat every year!

We had a wonderful evening with two friends who we hadn’t seen since Covid started.
Our waiter Tristan was very helpful and pleasant. I spite of us being seniors, he joined right in with our banter. The manager coming by was an added bonus.
The food was excellent as was the wine. Highly recommend this place

Delicious dinner and excellent service by the staff. Only issue was you could smell a bit of age in the restaurant and the menus just felt cheap. But everything else was perfect.

The lighting was a little too dark for me and the server at the door wasn't very friendly. The food was amazing though. Everything was delicious (don't recommend the southern hospitality,
it was too sweet). Where we were seated was comfortable and our server Jeffrey was awesome. He was so kind and attentive. Our cups were always full and we never needed to ask him for anything cause he already thought of everything. The lady who came after to ask us how we were doing was super sweet too. The candle and birthday card was a great touch. Thank you! Will definitely recommend and go again!
