Loved it ... We chose to be seated in the pub area ... with the comfortable seating .... but with full access to the full restaurant menu ... we all chose Alberta beef .... and were treated to truly wonderful food ... and warm and wonderful Alberta hospitality

They really know how to do steaks and if you want a high quality premium steak expect to get it at a premium prices. Went last night and two of us had the ribeye which was done exactly to order and two of us had the Prime rib also done exactly to order. The 12 ounce was well trimmed but... More

I was in touch with management after our last very disappointing meal at Vintage and we were encouraged to revisit. We did last night and had a meal worthy of this restaurant. I especially enjoyed the chicken friend lobster-big delicious wow! Thank you.

Came here with some friends on a Friday night for some steak. They serve free sourdough bread to start, and the steaks come with a side. All the food was delicious and cooked perfectly. Portions are good as well. There was a live band that started playing in the lounge around 10:00pm.

What a surprise this place was! Lounge music was at perfect sound level, playing Sinatra, can't go wrong. Our waiter Jeremy took the time to explain all the steak cuts, and helped us with our choice. For appetizers we had oysters Rockefeller paired with a glass of champagne and tuna tartar. The Best in Calgary, best in general. The steak... More

They have a solid selection of steaks and mine was cooked exactly to my request. They offer a number of sides that can be shared family style. Try the deep fried lobster. It was excellent, I've never seen lobster served up that way.

We went with a group of 20, they placed us in a room to ourselves. The service was excellent, the food was good and it was a fun place to just hang out. It is pricey; however, good for a special occasion. I love the decor, design of the building and the intimacy. While they seated several people, it didn't... More

Went with a group of 15 coworkers on a Saturday. First time visit. Found basically premium prices for a pretty standard product. One steak was inedible, 2 or 3 people also commented that a better feed was done on their own grill with supermarket beef. Drinks were fine, side dishes good but not incredible, desserts were quite nice. Service was... More

What a great place. Very nice atmosphere, top service and friendly staff. And the dinner was absolutely amazing. The free shuttle to the Saddledome for the hockey game was a great bonus Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Thanks for the great dinner
