Terrible food and service

One of the worst steakhouses I have eaten at in Calgary. Read all these great reviews and was extremely excited to try this restaurant and it was such a let down.

I went to this restaurant specifically to try their Beef Tartare. I went during a quiet time in order to relax and have a few appetizers for lunch. While here I had some of the best wine I have had before at a restaurant. The beef tartare was outstanding, it left me with a desire to come back and try... More

If you are wiling to pay a big dollar for a great steak, this is an excellent choice. They age their beef and it's special. Service meets expectations for a special evening. Overall, a memorable meal. My wife thinks it's better to just buy a great piece of meat and cook it yourself with a wine off your shelf, but... More

If you're in the mood for a really good piece of Steak - this is where you want to go. The prices can get a tad bit expensive. I was there the other day, and had the Prawn Capanelli. Other than the prawns being a tad overcooked - but still super delicious and completely edible - I had one of... More

As anyone who lives in Calgary knows, our restaurants are not known for their service. Well the Vintage Chophouse is a typical example of that. We were a group of 10 there for dinner, which means they automatically add a tip of 18% to the bill. Our waiter was SOOOO RUDE, I wouldn't have tipped him 18 cents. The food... More

My husband and I ate at Vintage and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. My husband said the steak was one of the best steaks he's ever had. We also appreciated the service. It was nice having a server who was knowledgeable about the product. Also, I liked that the servers bring out sample cuts of the steaks to show what the... More

Popped in to Vintage Chophouse this past week on the suggestion of Amanda, my Conciege, at Le Germain. She did not steer me wrong. I called ahead and they held a table for me near the bar. It was only 6:00pm. The restaurant was packed within an hour. I was fortunate to have Lani as my Server. This woman is... More

My friends and I decided to try Vintage for its Wagyu steak. It was $70 per steak, and therefore we expected the best. The steak came with a side (which are usually $10 if ordered separately), but we upgraded to a premium side (which was about $15 or so). First of all, we expected that the waiter charge only the...
