Steakhouse
Our decor 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 Waygu 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.

What a great location! Nice to have a great restaurant in the south. The lighting was very bright which is different from the Kensington location. The restaurant wasn’t that busy, they sat us right by the kitchen which was weird considering there was so much other open seats, why sit us next to the noisiest area with the most staff around?

Service was great. Food was incredible! All in all, we will definitely be back ❤️

We had the tomahawk steak, gnocchi and sprouts, all of which were awesome.
Sunday night pricing was great to try this cut.
Dumplings and octopus were good but we’ve had better.

The Brussel sprouts were amazing, the steak good, I had the $64, 14oz ribeye. I thought the steak was lacking a bit. I was expecting something more tender for the hype and the price. But I would definitely go back for the Brussel sprouts and chocolate mousse.

The presentation of the steak on a hot stone is clever but by the time you are 1/3 through your food the meat is overcooked and undesirable. Would not order there again.

Really quite awful. Service was horribly slow. Brought the wrong wine. Forgot to bring multiple things we ordered. Food runners placed entrees in front of the wrong people. Everything was amateur and unprofessional. Food was equally disappointing. Two steaks were very over-cooked and almost inedible. Server told us he’d have the kitchen recook them — we declined because of how incredibly long everything else was taking. No manager came to visit. Server asked if we wanted to take our inedible/uneaten steaks home — so I had to tell him once again they were unacceptable. He ended up removing the steaks from our bill, but it didn’t make up for such a bad overall experience. Awful service. Awful food. Nothing at all like the downtown location.

I had very high hopes for Modern Steak Southport. My husband and I have eaten at some of the best steak houses ( it’s our thing). But Modern Steak disappointed with the steak. The crab in a jar and the grilled octopus were amazing. The cocktails and wine selection were on point.

We ordered the Tomahawk for 2 . I loved the presentation of the hot stone. We ordered it medium rare, but this cut was the driest,toughest piece of steak I have ever had. We took it off the hot stone immediately when it was served as we realized it will continue to cook. For 167.00 dollars we would have been better off ordering individual steaks.

I hope that we just had a bad cut. But Modern Steak I think you can do better.

My wife and I tried out Modern Steak for the 1st time last night. Very impressed overall. Top notch service, good steak, and some really unique appies and sides (Wagyu dumplings, polenta and carrot sides) that we found delicious. Great wine selection too. We aren't huge eaters, so we shared one appie, a salad, one steak and two sides. Loved it all and couldn't quite eat it all. We'll be back!

Our server was excellent. Knowledgeable, and quick to make recommendations based on our inquiries. Truffle oil popcorn to start was very welcome! Appetizers were great. We had the oysters, the steak tartare and the Signature Wagyu dumplings. Caesar salad for the table to share. We ordered the 14 oz house ribeye with sides. For a steakhouse, I would have expected the ribeye to be the star of the show, but it was disappointing, not tender and while we expect good marbling in the meat there was just too much fat. Sides were good!

My wife and I went to the steak side for her 30th birthday and it was a wonderful experience. Food was great, steaks cooked to perfect as was the lobster tail. And the portion size on the side dishes was great. Service was top notch from every staff member. Will certainly recommend to others and be back ourselves. Keep up the good work folks!

A “rare” combination of perfect service, atmosphere and steak.

Love not eating steak in a quiet library setting. Modern Steak is vibrant with service and decour to match.

The Wagyu and Benchmark ribeyes were the best we’ve ever had.

Planning our next visit with friends as we speak.

Deliciosious !!!!! Absolutely love Modern. I dine out alot and I never have a bad experience at Modern Steak. Just from when you walk in the door with the friendly staff to the fantastic service you get. Yesterday we had the scallop crudo and beef tartare to start and for mains my girlfriends and I shared the ribeye tasting soooooo good. Love the hot rock it’s presented on and the sides were to die for. Thanks again for another great night out.

Love the new restaurant. The price is good for the quality of the steak, definitely a must try. Our server recommended the benchmark steak, which is there own bull and it was sooooo tender.

Best steakhouse ever!!!

The restaurant was poorly designed, much like an oriental (Hollywood) style. The menu was extensive but meant to maximize the revenue for the establishment. The food, very expensive and over-rated, when it came was only mediocre. My table, despite a resevation, was the worst seat in the room, part of the area used for the serving staff to arrange plates, cutlery and to prepare the billing.

I waited for this place to open and was sadly disappointed. I will NEVER return!

First time at this location - still preferred the Kennsington location as the mashed potatoes are slighter better there and I love the idea of choosing your own steak knife which the Southport location did not offer. The decor was nice but because half of the restaurant is Modern Ocean it does smell very fishy in there

Great service, delish food.
A nice New Years Eve dinner with my teenage sons.
Here’s a tip, when it’s really cold outside it’s a bit chilly sitting in the first booth by the entrance doors.

We had a great night out- expectations aren’t too high with all the challenges restaurants have been facing with staffing shortages etc due to no fault of their own, but the food and especially service was so awesome! Will be back for sure, try out the Ocean side next. And love that all the beef is locally sourced. Excellent!

The service was lovely! But the food was just ok. It wasn’t special. We ordered the rib-eye taster and it came on a heated slab. I understand the concept of wanting to keep it warm, but it just overcooked it and make it tough.

I’d go back for a work lunch or something like that, but not to celebrate a special occasion again.
