Steakhouse
Our decor is warm and modern. The tradition has always been dark wood, leathers and a muted palate 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 into 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 outside of the steak and leaves a juicy centre.

There were four of us dining. All four had different menu items and we all came away commenting that everything was a ten. Looking forward to our next visit.

Amazing steaks, amazing selection, amazing service... it has been a while since I had a good steak at a restaurant and felt like it was worth the price you paid. Modern delivered on that expectation.
Added bonus is that you feel good about supporting the local ranches around calgary when you eat at Modern. Great stories are learned when you understand who is behind the food.

If they're putting on another brunch buffet, don't bother. Scrambled eggs were terrible, eggs benedict was hard as a rock, salmon was cold, no snow crab was out, and the prime rib was the best part, but only "ok".

Service was great as always though.

Edit: The General Manager just reached out to me with a full apology for our poor experience with the buffet. Something that I really appreciated. Although that particular breakfast buffet was bad, I won't hesitate to go back for a superb dinner and drinks. The service really is always great there.

Was seated in what felt like the basement. Food was cooked properly and quite tasty once we switched our plates as they were reversed upon coming to the table, very minor and didn’t take away from the dining.

We had a fabulous Wed evening 'Date Night' at the special price advertised, so was so affordable for a retired couple celebrating a Birthday date night. It was terrific. I was however not too wowed by the caesar salad...my favourite ; but would not recommend theirs. Everything else was fabulous!!

Steaks were amazing! We went for their date night on the Wednesday and loved the service, the wine, everything. Get the fries they are a revelation (usually we don't get fried at a steakhouse.) Also the popcorn for the table was a really nice touch and it was so addictive! Can't wait to go back!

Came to Modern Steak for our second time to try Tomahawk Sunday! The steak was very tasty & I loved the rosemary butter and loaded mash potatoes. The wine by the glass is overly expensive for only a 5oz measure but overall an enjoyable dining experience with very good service.

The food was excellent! Service however was VERY slow. We had a 7:45 reservation but was not seated until 8:21. Once at our table it took about 10 minutes for our server to come by. By then we were hungry and ready to order, but our server was trying to get us to order drinks first and said he would be back with a wine menu. He dropped off the wine menu and left right away which didn't give us the chance to order once again. Finally when he came back we let him know we had picked out a bottle of wine and were also ready to order. He took our wine order and then left without taking the rest of our order. The food was delicious and one of the best steaks I've had, just be prepared for the very slow service.

Amazing server made all the difference, helped us understand Modern’s take on steak, helped us understand the menu, and guided us toward some excellent choices. Directed us away from a few things that, while would have increased the bill, she didn’t think would provide a superlative dining experience.

If you love steak then you have to check this place out. I have never experienced such beautiful cuts of meat that almost melt in your mouth they’re so tender. I was even impressed by the side dishes, good portion sizes and so fresh and flavorful. I can’t wait to be back!

We had never been to Modern Steak before, but it was recommended to us by a friend based on me researching into the best steak restaurants in Calgary. We were not disappointed. There were tons of excellent options for the steaks, and our waitress explained to us a little about each and how to make our decision (for example, the steak from one of the specific ranches was more grass-fed, or this other one might have more of a specific flavour). The steaks we chose were cooked perfectly and they were both delicious. Definitely a place to check out.

The Wagyu platter was great, would give it a 5 stars. Next time, we would get it rare though as it continues to cook as we eat and the medium rare became too cooked. The sides were not that good. We tried the potatoes, baked potatoes, loaded mash potaotes, mushrooms, and poutine. The loaded mashed potatoes was very good, the mushroom was good but on the salty side. We wouldn’t try the caramelized onions baked potato and the roast potaotes, which were too sweet, or the poutine again.

Service was excellent. I had a N.Y. Striploin which was good and tasty, but a little on the tough side. It was cooked medium rare. Cesare salad was very good. Ambience was good and reasonable quiet so you could talk.
Map showed location on 10street so it was a little difficult to find as it was one block to the west. I am not sure if that is 11 street or 10A street.

I am a big fan of Modern Steak and it’s concept but I found my ribeye very tough and not tender at all. My daughter experienced the same with her striploin. Very disappointed. I will reconsider before going again as there are so many other options available.
