Steakhouse

Our décor is warm and modern. The tradition has always been dark wood, leathers and a muted palette 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 in to produce our beef.

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.

We use a 1800 degree Infrared Grill to cook your steaks. The high heat creates a flavourful crust on the outside of the steak and leaves a juicy centre.

                                                  I took my Son here for his birthday and we both extremely impressed. Our waitress was very friendly, professional and knowledgeable and the kitchen outstanding. The octopus and crab appetizers were great (octopus fantastic) and the steaks were cooked to perfection. If you love fine dining and excellent quality then you should go here but if you’re looking for a good meal at an affordable price this isn’t for you.

                                                  Birthday celebration for my spouse. First visit to Modern Steak for both of us. Food was awesome with the Tomahawk Ribeye being as good as anything we’ve had before. The two sides were very good and the Caesar salad had a wonderful dressing that wasn’t all raw garlic. Will definitely be going back in the not to distant future.

                                                  We had excellent service. The food was a bit slow coming out but we had a very nice evening with friends so it didn’t bother us. Our steaks could have been hotter. Our server was very good!!

                                                  We went for a treat for my daughter’s birthday. We were treated like good by one and all! Trio of filet was wonderful! Lovely evening.

                                                  I had the 8 oz. Filet with blue cheese crust, excellent. Probably the best steak I’ve had in a restaurant. However, I paired with the Prawns which I thought were bland and only marginal at best. Also, they should offer something between a 5 oz. glass of wine and a half or full bottle.

                                                  It was our first time in the restaurant. The waiter (Jermey) was very good explaining the special on Wednesday and responding well to all our requests In general the food was good except for one of the steaks that was requested to be well done, but it had a lot of red in it. One of the managers came over and apologized and offered us a free dessert.

                                                  We had the Tomahawk steak done medium rare, it came exactly as we ordered, very juicy flavourful cut of beef. We enjoyed using the grill stone on the table to heat up pieces of the steak as needed as quite often in other restaurants the remaining portion of larger cuts will cool off at the table before you can eat them. The wine was a 20 year old Napa Cab that was a superb match with the steak. The roasted brussel sprouts and polenta sides were a nice accompaniment to the steak.

                                                  Way too loud. I was disappointed to be in a “special”restaurant to celebrate our birthdays and was surrounded by people on sweat pants, ball caps on, flip flops, etc. Also… medium well steak requested and I was only able to eat the outer edge as it then became very bloody. The waiter took the dessert off our bill … appreciated but it did nothing for the disappointment as the food that I could eat was very delicious - just could not get past the bleeding on my plate so surrendered the remainder of my steak to my husband:( The noise of people at other tables laughing and yelling so loud made it difficult to communicate even with the waiter!

                                                  By far the best steak I have ever had! This was our first time there but it would be our last! Can’t wait to go back. Really reasonable costs for a beautiful steak dinner and a couple of drinks. Our waiter went above and beyond, explaining all the different steaks and the cuts. Perfect amount of check-ins with us. Most places are either not enough and way too many. I love everything about this restaurant and would highly recommend it!

                                                  Awesome, as usual. I cannot say i ever have anything bad to say about this place. Servers are nice and polite, food is good. I wish it was cheaper, but i wish everything in life was cheaper... so...

                                                  Food and service was incredible, fairly loud music which isnt that great if you’re looking for a quiet fancy dinner night. Relatively expensive but the food was very tasty. Will definitely go back.

                                                  Very disappointing. They advertise a 40 ozs tomahawk steak, but leave out the part that that weight value includes the bone. Our steak was at least 1/3 fat. We felt there was very little value going to this restaurant. However, the service from our waiter was outstanding!

                                                  We dined here on Mother’s Day and had a great time. We often go to to the Kensington location but decided to try this new location and were pleased the service level and food was consistent.

                                                  Way over seasoned for my taste. left me wondering why they bring extra salt to the table.

                                                  Service is great food is better. Date night on Wednesday is stupid affordable. Select menu which makes sense but good steaks incl.

                                                  Service and food were outstanding. We really enjoyed ourselves. Waiter was great and very helpful and informative as he reviewed the menu items, the different cuts, ranches and types of beef. We'll be back!
