    Very knowledgeable staff. We took our two young daughters and they were very good at keeping them comfortable late in the evening. Even gave them nice warm blankets for the chilly evening on the rooftop.

    The food was amazing! We ordered the rib-eye tasting with brussel sprouts, polenta and carrots! Everything was delicious. The cocktail menu was a little disappointing as there was only a few options. The wine menu has tons of options which was nice. The view was great you have an amazing view of the Calgary tower! There was a live DJ who was playing great music however it was quite loud but we didn’t mind. I would suggest suggest downstairs if you want a more intimate experience. Our waiter was good but not overly friendly and didn’t make and effort to engage in conversation.

    Unfortunately we sat for 30 min, finished our drinks and no one took our food order. The manager did come over and apologize. He did not charge us for our drinks and offered us to stay. We decided to leave, but will try a different location.

    It was a superb experience from the moment we were greeted at the door by the lovely hostess. Our server took us through a tour of the menu and the wine list and made the perfect recommendations because everything about our meal was delicious. The view of the city from the rooftop topped off our lovely evening. Thank you for the perfect date night!

    Booked for a work lunch. Service was totally not responsive. We had to rebook meetings and one colleague had to leave for a flight. We sat on the patio. Our server was in the bar on her phone most of the time or chatting with other servers. When brining up the fact that our entrees took almost an hour and 20 minutes, our server just said “I’m sorry.” Some sides were incorrect and upcharged, however I couldn’t be bothered to deal with it because service was so brutal. All of the food was good, however for the price point Modern Steak needs better trained staff. Also professionalism is an issue. Wearing sundresses with flip flops and a full body of exposed tattoos doesn’t match up with the environment or clientele. The entire experience felt like it’s a restaurant that needs to be on Bar Rescue.

    A long walk up about 7 sets of stairs, leads to the roof with good views of the top parts of downtown high rises and the Tower. Some tables are inside but with the whole of one “wall” removed. Some are comfortable looking banquettes mainly covered by a large awning. Some are uncomfortable counter height rickety tables with a small sunshade. It appeared that the banquettes are kept for parties of 4 or more. Food was extremely well cooked, if a little “uneventful”, except the dessert “C&C Mousse Factory”, which was a triumph. Service was good, if a little formulaic such as server starting a conversation sounding like she knew she should be clearly not listening to the reply and going off part way through the (short) reply. The table was very obviously off balance to the server, partly as a bottle almost fell off due to that when the table tipped her way as she was putting it there—but this was ignored until I asked for it to be dealt with. But quick, efficient and generally helpful. It was our anniversary and it was nice to be given a card with “Happy Anniversary” on the envelope, even though the card inside said “Happy Birthday”!

    Our family from Winnipeg was craving steak, so of course we took them to Modern Steak Rooftop. From the cocktails, 5 appetizers, rib eye tasting platter, crab and all the sides, oh and then dessert..... literally nothing was left on our plates. The DJ was awesome and service was fantastic. We always have a great time and no other steak can compare.

    Had made reservations online two weeks in advance, I also called and confirmed for the booth on the roof top and the lady that picked assured me that she put the notes in and it's done. But got a flimsy table for two right next to the bar with all the noise. I've been to modern a bunch of times and let's say this will the last.

    We had a lunch reservation for four people on the rooftop and when we arrived we were given a table inside. I asked the hostess if there was anyway to get a table in the sun,where a double table was unoccupied simply because we were with two older people who were experiencing muscle pain and the heat would help, and she said we can't accommodate you because that's a table of 8 and you're only 4. I didn't understand seeing that we had a reservation and I asked if she had a reservation for that table and she said no. Then I heard her mumble to another staff member that I was asking for too much and that I should "f" off. It's was at that point I told our waitress not to pour us any water as we will be leaving. She was so kind to ask what was the reason and when I explained the situation she moved us without an issue and said this wasn't a big deal. After being shut down due to covid you would think that customer service would be better but I guess not. I was so excited to bring my guests to your rooftop as I have always had a great experience. That won't be happening again.

    MODERN STEAK ROOFTOPResponded on August 10, 2022Hello Michael, Thanks for talking the time to talk to us today and being so kind, this review was heartbreaking to read. We apologize again as this behavior is unacceptable by any standard. This employee is no longer in a host position with Modern, so this can never happen again. What we truly look forward to is having you back in again to show Modern's true spirit of hospitality. All the best, Stephen Deere Owner

    Food was amazing. Roof top patio also gorgeous. Waitress was efficient and knowledgeable but not particularly friendly which was a little surprising at such a great restaurant.
