MODERN STEAK - Kensington
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.
It was a beautiful atmosphere and the food and service where perfect. I will definitely be back again :)
Excellent date night special
Modern Steak was the most amazing experience we have ever had! The food 10/10! I will d ram about that 40 ounce Tomahawk for two until my dying day! A new favorite for all our special moments!
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.
Awesome service and delicious food. Is a very noisy place if people are loud. Great overall experience
Great atmosphere. Well informed staff with great recommendations. Exceptional food
Food was fabulous. Service was great. We'll be back.
Great fooe, great server. It was an outstanding dinner experience. I've already recommended this place.
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!
Excellent service, awesome food! Highly recommend 😊
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.
Food and service were both spectacular. Definitely a great place to go if you like steak
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.
Service excellent from the moment we arrived to when we left
Veg under cooked, 1 of the steaks rare rather than med rare
Our sever took care of our concerns
Will definitely go back
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 the seafood platter and it was delicious. We came in early for drinks and sat at the bar. Alex was amazing, she was friendly and went above and beyond to make our experience one that we thoroughly enjoyed.
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.
We were very impressed with everything about Modern Steak. It was our second time and we wanted our friends to try it and they thoroughly enjoyed the evening, the food, and our waiter was amazing (Ryan)
Amazing as always! Had the Waygu sampler did not disappoint, so good, great service, great experience!
Delicious! Baked Alaska was spectacular. Also loved the “date night” special!
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.
Baked potato was a little sweet and poutine a little too salty
It was our 20th Anniversary- the evening was excellent though no one was aware it was our Anniversary even though it was filled out on line as per App. Our Server Jarod said he wished he knew prior however he treated us so great and the food was exceptional- we will be back.
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.
We got the wagyu steak platter. It was incredible. Very cool experience to have 4 different cuts to compare and a selection of salts to compliment.
Place is showing its age. Waiter was outstanding but for the cost the food was just okay. Much better food to be had in the city at this price point.
We ordered the trio of steaks it was great to taste the variety of cuts.
Great experience. Felt Welcome from the moment we stepped in the door. Attentive service, excellent well prepared food and the perfect wine.
Will definitely be back.
Best steak in Calgary. Love the modern vibe vs tired traditionalism.
Probably the best meal we’ve had in a long time. The steak was unbelievable, but the sides stole the show. Amazing meal!
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.
Best steaks we have every had! The service was awesome and the decor and ambience are great for a special occasion :)
