Modern Steak

What sets Modern Steak apart is the beef: the restaurant works with Alberta ranchers to source the highest-quality local beef found ’round these parts. Alongside its Alberta beef menu is a wagyu program that rivals what you’d find in Japan.

Hy’s Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar

Hy’s Steakhouse delivers a quintessential steakhouse experience in an elegant, downtown atmosphere.

Vintage Chophouse and Tavern

Vintage Chophouse and Tavern has been one of the top steakhouses in Calgary since it opened over a decade ago. Vintage offers several Canada Prime steak options, as well as dishes like lobster mac and cheese and Alberta braised lamb shank. Complete the experience with one of the 600 wine options in the cellar.

Charcut Roast House

One of the most notable things about this downtown restaurant from chefs Connie DeSousa and John Jackson is how much of its ingredients and menu are made from scratch, including the house-butchered meats, the pasta and even the preserves. A big draw is the slow-roasted prime rib, which is a dish that summarizes the whole menu – highlighting quality, locally sourced food with simple techniques done well.
