Great Steak and Chicken

Let me start by saying this place is not cheap but it really does do a great Rib Steak. They must put some kind of rub on it, but boy is it good. My wife had the chicken which again was great. Would recommend it to anyone visiting Calgary

The Vintage Chophouse is without doubt the best steakhouse in Calgary (if not the world!!). The celebrated AAA Alberta steaks are amazing! Make sure you have a reservation and enjoy the dark, chic ambiance. The waiter brings a tray of the meat selection for you to choose from and talks you through each cut. There is a great wine selection... More

Went for a romantic dinner and a true "Alberta Steak" experience but was very disappointed with the atmosphere. A live band started belting about 10 mins after our arrival. We had expected a more relaxed and intimate atmosphere, not a dance party. The service was decent and the food excellent but overall it was nothing special.

Went for a special dinner with the family of 4. Appetizers and mains were fantastic. Service was great, waiter was outstanding. Had a very large wine list as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience.

We came here for lunch on a Thursday. We got a reservation and were seated promptly. The menu offers a variety of dishes from appetizers to side dishes. The calamari was very good. The steaks were excellent, tender and flavourful. The sides broccolini and Yukon whipped potato were delicious. The cost of the steaks includes a side dish. Service was... More

We came here for our 18th anniversary dinner, and we had high hopes. I would like to tell you about the food, but we didn't even get to have any!! Why? They don't allow minors anywhere in their restaurant, and our son was very upset. What the heck?! Why? Because of their "Liquor Licence." The receptionist wasn't very pleasant at... More

We had a very nice business dinner tonight. We were seated promptly with our reservation. We sat in a booth. The waiter had a black napkin ready for me, since I was wearing black pants. The waiter recommended a nice red wine; Neal from Napa. Our steaks were excellent and prepared perfectly. Our sides, baked potato, steak fries and asparagus... More

I hosted a birthday party for my husband in the private Legacy Room. From start to finish everything was amazing! The food was spectacular, the beverages were plentiful and our server was phenomenally efficient (especially considering how many people there was!). I really appreciated that all the food was dropped off at once as opposed to slowly trickling in. It... More

Service was attentive and efficient. Food was average and not inspired. A steakhouse with the usual choices.
