I was taken to this great place for the music. However I discovered that not only do they have great live music they have a great food menu as well. We were not eating this time but the menu did look very appetizing. The restaurant was packed and we could not get a seat so we nestled up to the... More

We enjoyed our meal at Vintage; from the appetizer through to desert, we weren't disappointed. Our server made excellent suggestions, and helped us pair our meal with the perfect wine. Great, warm atmosphere, and a well presented, delicious meal. We will definitely return!

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. The place was so loud, the service was spotty and the food tasted like something I could make at home myself. Not worth it for the price, I will... More

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
