The hype about the Beef and the menu far exceeds the dining experience! Not sure that it is possible to live up to actually. I ordered a “standard” 8 oz filet. It came on a large plate with a smear of balsamic reduction. Filet was about 3/4 inch and looked very puny! Cook was right MR, but seemed to be a thin butt end cut. Flavor …. OK. Brussels sprouts, pretty charred and not much flavor. My wife ordered dumplings. They came cold and not to her taste. Her steak rib eye, again little flair so she simply took it home for our dogs. When one spends $300 plus for dinner for two……. I guess we expected a much better meal than we were served! Oh, ordered but never revived the polenta!!!!

Ryan was our server. His knowledge and service blew us away. Yes, the food was fantastic, but we enjoyed it all the more because of the knowledge he imparted about beef that informed the choices we made while ordering. It was a much more tailored and personalized dining experience because of his expertise. We will be back!

Had never dined at Modern Steak before.we went with friends who had never dined at Modern steak either,So we had high hopes.
Modern Steak did not disappoint.We were treated wonderfully from check in until the time we left.
We were seated on the lower level.There are a fair amount of stairs to reach the lower level .I do have some mobility issues.The strong railings are a great help.
Our waiter was knowledgeable and did a wonderful job taking us through our dining experience.
All four of us had the same meal and all four of us were very satisfied with our choices.The steak was perfectly cooked(6 ounce filet) and the sides were large portions and tasted excellent. (Caesar salad,baked potatoes and Brussel sprouts all done perfectly.
We will certainly return.

The server was new and hadn’t tried much on the menu so couldn’t help with recommendations but he was friendly and brought lots of truffle popcorn so what more can you ask for! The food was great as always.

The food and service was amazing. They gave us a complimentary cake for our anniversary.

My only complaint was that were sat by the bar and the seating was very low and not comfortable. I felt I was sitting on the floor and the seat kept moving. It was also fairly loud.

Awesome service. Can’t believe the size of the steaks! And all AB local steak. Compared to the keg / Hys / Caesars relatively same price but a steak like you’d get in a high end steak house in Vegas. And way better atmosphere. We were there for 3 1/2 hours!

We have been to modern before, and this experience was different than our others. We waited an hour and a half for our steaks. It wasn’t overly busy from what we could see, so we weren’t really sure why it took so long. The server was nice and comped us a small salad, but considering we spent over $300… it didn’t really allow us to leave with a good feeling.
