I don't have anything particularly negative to say about this place. The service was on point, but I don't think I've every had a bad fine dining service related incident. The steaks themselves were decently made, but nothing outstanding in my opinion. The sides however, were quite delicious. Macaroni, mashed potatoes, and beets were my favourite.

Visited recently with some friends, had a great meal, server was knowledgeable and the wine list full of BC wines which is a nice treat when you from Eastern Canada. Selection of cuts was vast, which are presented at the table. Sides were good, lobster Mac and cheese was disappointing, but otherwise very solid. They even have live music, band... More

I had the Wagou striploin and it melted in my mouth. Great service, great atmosphere. Probably the best steakhouse in Calgary, maybe Canada.

Six adults dined at the Vintage Chophouse. The seafood special was halibut - my favourite. I asked our server whether I should order beef short ribs or the halibut. She recommended the halibut. So two of us ordered the halibut and one person ordered the seafood pasta dish. Should have gone with the short ribs. Both halibut dishes were really... More

Best steak of my life. Impeccable service. Had oysters on the half shell, 10oz ny, creamed spinach au gratin and carrot cake cheesecake. Can't decide what was the best item!

Prime Rib was cold, soaking in a pool of cold eau jus. Lobster tail was the size of a large shrimp. Scallops were only seared on one side, slightly under cooked. Very over priced for very average food

It was a piece of beast kind of night. Easy to get a reservation, even on a Friday. Impeccable ++ service from an intelligent wait staff. Took a chance on a Canadiana wine-like when in Rome. Went with the prime rib- this is a chophouse, after all. Buttery and melted in the mouth. Their own ground horseradish was intense. Choice... More

We hosted a business dinner at the Vintage Chophouse earlier this week and they did a great job taking care of us. The service, food quality, and ambiance were all great.

I attended a dinner business presentation at Vintage Chophouse. The food and service were both very good. Often at a chophouse, I find the steaks a bit flat in flavour, but this was not the case at Vintage - I enjoyed my beef. The server was polite, prompt and professional. I would be pleased to have a meal at this... More

My wife and I dined in the tavern where it was a little quieter than the restaurant. It was a Sunday evening, so not too busy. The tenderloin that my wife ordered and the prime rib that I ordered were superb. Nice wine list and a good selection of draught beers. Our waitress was extremely personable and very knowledgeable.
