Beef-driven restaurant in Calgary's center

We wanted Alberta beef, and we got it! My husband had a New York steak, and I had prime rib. Both were delicious. The restaurant has a clubby feel with lots of wood and dim lights. The food is expensive but the price didn't seem to have much effect on patronage since the restaurant was full on a... read more

The food is expensive but the price didn't seem to have much effect on patronage since the restaurant was full on a week night.

You cannot go wrong with the service, food and wine at the Vintage, the complete menu is well planned for any and all tastes. I would suggest making reservations. The entrance seating area in front of the bar offers a good place to wait for company and have a good cocktail waiting for your table. This place makes you feel... More

This restaurant has it all going on. The atmosphere and ambiance was perfect for fine dining. The service was exceptional and the food was outstanding. I recommend this restraunt without any reservations. I had a braised short rib. The meat was tender and the sauce was heavenly.

I have travelled all over the world and usually love finding good steak restaurants to go to. Everywhere my wife and I go we compare the steaks to Vintage. So far, nothing has compared. Every time I come I get the filet and it is cooked to perfection and the red wine demi sauce is just amazing. Also, the truffle... More

I hadn't been to Vintage for lunch in a long time so when we had the opportunity we booked a business meeting there. We got one of the booths so that we could discuss items over the food. It did get loud but the booth helped. Service was, as always, good but with not too much hovering but we could... More

Our meals were excellent and my New York was one of the best steaks I've had in years. This was so much better than the typical US steak house experience (overly solicitous waiters, massive portions, crazy prices). I would absolutely come back again - it's all about the food instead of the experience... as it should be.

Nice atmosphere, casual but upscale, it's a large restaurant, but seemed cozy given the setup, definitely good for any size group or couples. Service was really good, attentive but unobtrusive. The tableside presentation of the cuts of meat was very nice and emphasized their focus on great steak. I had the Wagyu steak and it was simply amazing. It's from... More

My husband and I went for dinner at The Vintage Chophouse and Tavern downtown Calgary in May of 2015 on a Wednesday evening. We made reservations the day before but showed up half an hour early and it was not busy so were seated right away. The place has a great atmosphere with soft music playing in the background. We...
