Steakhouse
Four key pieces separate us from a traditional steakhouse.

1) 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.

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

3) We use an 1800o Infrared Grill to cook your steaks. Our grill stays at very consistent high heat versus a traditional open flame grill. The high heat creates a flavourful crust on outside of the steak and leaves a juicy centre.

4) Our décor is warm and modern. The tradition has always been dark wood, leathers and a muted palate for a steakhouse. We broke the mold and decided to add hand selected music that reflects us!

    You must eat here! Don’t even think about passing this up. Our first dining experience with MODERN, and it won’t be the last. Our waiter, Jay, was a totally cool, down to earth guy. Very knowledgeable about the menu and making recommendations. He brought out this complimentary tasting of truffle popcorn which now is my new guilty pleasure. The rib eye was cooked to perfection, and the Brussels sprouts are a must try. Can’t wait for our next visit.

    Wonderful experience! Best meal we have had in calgary in a long time. Our server Kayla was so personable and offered lots of great options. We ordered the trio, truffle fries, polenta, Brussel sprouts and ceasar salad. Everything was perfect. 10/10 experience, we will for sure be back!

    Love love Modern Steak. Every time we go we have exceptional service (thank you Jay!) and an excellent dinner. The steaks were cooked to perfection and I love trying their less standard sides. The polenta was noteworthy and I highly recommend it! Can’t wait to go back.

    Jay, our server was awesome. The steaks were really good and even had some great seafood/non steak dishes. It did take a long while to get drinks, even coffee, but our server had realized this and gave compensation for it. Overall great experience and they do have good deals during the weekday that I would use and go again, like Wednesday date night.

    It was our weeding anniversary and the steak was undercooked, they took the steak and them brought it back with burns outside. It was bitter and cold, unfortunately that ruined our dinner Although they apologized, this is not what you expect from a steakhouse

    Was just ok. Certainly not worth the price tag. All the folks working were very nice and pleasant. Table service was glacial. But the food came out quickly once we ordered. Found out about a delicious sounding tomahawk steak special on the bathroom wall after we had ordered our food. Would have went with that had we known. If you are looking for a good steak in Calgary there are several much better options. Especially at this price point.

    We were visiting Calgary and went to this restaurant for an impromptu birthday dinner. The food was excellent, and so was the ambience. Steaks cooked to perfection and the sides were delicious. Portions were a reasonable size—we were travelling the next morning and didn’t want to feel overstuffed so each couple split a main and ordered an extra side and it was the perfect amount. The decor is sophisticated and funky with in ways that blend nicely with the historic nature of the building. It’s worth going there just for aesthetics but do yourself a favour and eat there, too.

    The staff and service were great. Very friendly and attentive. The food did leave a bit to be desired. While the steak was delicious, the sides and appetizers were underwhelming- it did feel overpriced for what we got. The romaine lettuce in our salad was brown and looked to be going bad and the roasted potatoes were okay at best. Not sure that I'd return given the price for quality of food.

    Waitress was rude and sarcastic, bar couldn’t make a proper old fashioned absolutely terrible yellow orange peels lack of bitters, there was none no bitters or orange peel on the first one. Extremely loud and yelling table next to us, made our nice first date almost unbearable due to noise level and vulgar conversation, no one told them to keep it down! Honestly expected better out of a higher class restaurant
