Dined here for my boyfriend's 25th birthday and all I can say is wow. The ambience, service and food was absolutely incredible and completely surpassed our expectations! We definitely recommend trying out the ribeye tasting.

Took a long time to get meals. I specifically told our waiter to bring our wine 5 min before our meals came but meals came out about 45 min after the wine. We think it wasn’t the server’s fault but more a slow kitchen service. Quite disappointed.

Good food - server was not great.

I would not recommend modern steak to a friend simply because for a meal that expensive I expect the service to match. Server was inattentive, brisk, hard to flag down and somewhat condescending to two people in our group of four.

Don’t get me wrong… the steak (benchmark ribeye) was excellent and prepared with care. The sides were delicious. But this isn’t the only steak place in town and I expect a $400+ meal to come with service that matches.

We went for dinner and everything was so delicious! The Benchmark flat iron was perfectly cooked and the prawn risotto was rich and satisfying!

My husband and our 3 grown children ordered the Benchmark Showcase. Although it was recommended for 3 or 4 people, we enjoyed it and even took a small to go box home. Super delicious and the sides were prepared to perfection. Nice wine selection too.

Not what we expected. The staff were really fantastic but dining on Stephen Ave was a letdown at this place. There is plenty of parking nearby and it is right at the corner of Centre Street and Stephen Ave. The old elevator ride up to the patio, stopping on the 2nd floor was not appealing. The set up where you can't see the street view was disappointing and most of the metal rails were rusted. The food was just ok and tiny servings for the $200 spent on their Thursday evening offer - 3 course meal and glass of prosecco. If we did not order the upgrades, we would have definitely gone to another restaurant to actually get full. I think this restaurant would be more suited for the Bar crowd and not for couples

Outstanding! I’ve always enjoyed the dining experience that I’ve had at Modern Steak. This time was different, for better!
Three observations: 1. They are consistent, the looks, flavour and quality of the steaks stayed top notch for almost ten years! Now I can say Modern Steak is also traditional.
2. The new location is unbelievable! What a nice rooftop! I was impressed with the view, the vibe and the vines! Well done, Steve (owner), you have an amazing taste!
3. Even though they’re always expanding, the value of their food, cocktails and wine remain fair and worthy! And the service continue to be kind, personal and fun (special thanks to Natasha) ;)

Went for the “date night” deal for my moms birthday. They had a birthday card for her upon arrival which was a nice touch. The steaks and all food was cooked to PERFECTION. 10/10 would recommend.

Food is amazing! View is good but I asked for a better view when I booked it cause it’s my anniversary and I didn’t get it. Rooftop is nice but it’s nicer if you are out that you can see the tower. It’s pricey but the steak is awesome!

Such a joy to still receive good quality service and food in an age where that seems rarer to find. The decor and ambiance are exceptional and the staff is well trained and professional. I highly recommend Modern Steak.

So happy we came here for my partners birthday. We had Barb as our server and she made our night so special. Her service is second to none. The food was delicious. I tried waygu steak for the first time, and it lived up to its expectations. Cooked to medium as ordered. The sides were also such a treat. The baked Alaska was out of this world!
Next time we’re in Calgary, we will be back for more!

The food is well presented, tasty and a great deal for the price $80 for two (Wednesday date night deal). Our server was nice, not intruding and attentive (other servers stop by too, to fill up your water or wine glasses). Will definitely be coming again.

Had a fantastic Birthday Dinner for my husband! Our server, Sheldon was nothing shy of amazing with his great customer service, recommendations and his attention to detail! He made both, my husband and I feel very comfortable and welcome. Sheldon was very accommodating considering our dietary restrictions and made the night one to remember! Thank you, from Hassan and Amira Hamdan.

If you like steaks, its a good place. The food is good and the meat is very good quality. Service is nice. If you take the showcase of meat on the cooking plate, dont leave the meat on it otherwise it will overheat and overcook quick and wont be that good after. Also the food its a bit too salty. Its not healthy and not necessary to put so much salt all around in the food. Beside that, we enjoyed the meal in general.

The rooftop is a great space for dinner with friends or for a special occasion. Our main complaint was the cook of the steak as it was overdone for what we wanted, however the staff did make it right by promptly bringing a new steak.

I have eaten at Modern Steak many times and was always very happy. This time I ordered the featured menu and was very disappointed with the steak. it was very fatty and small. I will still go again but not order the “set”3 course meal. Service was poor at best. It was busy so I understand but at the price you pay at Modern Steak I expect slightly better sevice.
