The dining experience at The Vintage was outstanding. Although the exterior of the building needs work, the inside is very nicely done and a great dining environment. The food and wine recommended was superb and our server - Stephen, was outstanding. Could not recommend higher. Will definitely be back soon.

Came here from Edmonton for my 30th birthday. I loved the French onion soup. I ordered bacon scalloped potatoes. They were absolutely perfect.

This was a fairly disappointing visit.
Vintage has always been my favourite Calgary dining spot, but it certainly didn't live up to expectations this time around.
Drink orders had to be changed multiple times because of a poorly stocked bar.
There were several lengthy periods where no servers came by to check on things or refill our drinks.
Our food was all mixed up when it was brought to the table, and steaks were not cooked as ordered.
Though the steak was ultimately very good quality (and delicious), the side dishes were fairly underwhelming.

This is not the Vintage I have recommended to so many people over the years.
I certainly hope this isn't a trend, as there are much better options at this price point in Calgary than what we experienced on this visit.

This was my second visit to Vintage since my very first time was an excellent experience. This time , we were excited to hear the live band. The website advertised a live blues/jazz band for the night but it ended up being covers of old disco songs which a group of diners enjoyed and started dancing. I would rate the food as 3 out of 5. I ordered the exact same thing (seafood spaghettini) as my previous visit since it was so delicious but this time, it was a bit disappointing, the food tasted and quite bland. Not sure if it was the different time of the day, maybe a different chef. The tomahawk steak did not disappoint. All in all it was a good experience.

Awesome staff. Everyone enjoyed the food. Large portions. I had the Beef Dip, and while very tasty, I found it was dripping pure grease/fat from the bun onto my plate. It made it almost too rich to eat.

The service was impeccable and the ambience was also great but the food lacked flavour. We had the tenderloin and the prime rib and both really lacked any taste. They were cooked perfectly but it’s unfortunate when you pay that much for meat that requires so much seasoning

From the moment you walk into the door, the ambience and service are amazing. The host greeted us with a smile and was very friendly. He made us feel so welcome. Our server was an absolute delight, he knew his wines and made great recommendations. Again, he made us feel welcome and valued. The food was excellent, we all had steak and they were cooked to perfection. Thank you for the amazing service and food. We will be back!

Steak was salty and tough, although was supposed to be a medium tenderloin. Literally comparable to a 9 dollar steak sandwich I had for lunch, only more salt.

Onion rings as a “classic” side for a 40+ dollar plate is also laughable.
Onion rings looked like doughnuts and tasted like greasy batter by the way.

Waiter was odd/ borderline grungy but on point and kept lurking, serving at a good pace.

All aspects of our evening exceded our expectations, from the atmosphere to the appetizers, the friendliness of the hostess and the superb knowledge of our server (it says S-JC on our bill). Could not have asked for a better birthday dinner. Our server was so quick and educated on every single question we had, from wine and their vineyards to the cuts of steak and their tenderness! Steak was cooked immaculately, sides were more than generous and both me and my boyfriend are leaving with full and content bellies. I would highly recommend Vintage to anyone and everyone. Thanks again guys!

Vintage has always been one of my favorite restaurants. However, this last visit was disappointing. We tried the big taste menu, the beef kofta came out incredibly dry and cold, and the striploin came out cold as well. The wait between courses also seemed quite long. Overall this was a disappointing experience and not up to the high caliber that I normally associate with Vintage. I would not recommend the big taste meal to anyone who asked, but I will still be back for my favorite beef tartare, lobster mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, and 10Oz New York striploin!

Be sure to call the restaurant after reserving with open table as you will be seated in the tavern and not the restaurant. I was there for a special occasion and was offered a dessert menu choice free of charge. My partner did not order one, but got charged for one anyway which eliminated the so called free dessert. The background music was distasteful and interfered with our conversations. Overall the main course steak selections and portions were abundant and good. Their wine list was extensive and the waiter was attentive to top up your glass whenever needed as you have no access to your beverage.

There was no offer to help with coats
The plate ware is terrible. Small and cheap, so many elegant options are available now
Chipped votive holder
The table was too small to hold side dishes and have a side plate.
Very poor selection of beers
server was very good, personable
Steak was okay, mushrooms overpowered by thyme. Very doughy bread.
Steak tartare good flavour but very coarse.
