Heard others talk about how fabulous the food is and we were not let down. Best tenderloin ever. Our server Jeremy made our dining experience rewarding.

Came with my entire family. OMG amazing, the appies were awesome. Crab cakes and lobster fritter's were both out of this world. I would say the rib eye and fillet were the best steaks in town. The service was above and beyond what everyone comes to expect. Jerry Lynn our server was one of the best we have had. She... More

Very good service in a very comfortable restaurant. We dined in the Tavern and on Fridays and Saturdays a band starts at 10 pm and the place gets a "cocktail lounge" vibe going. We ate before they started up. My steak was delicious as was my wife's halibut although, this was slightly overdone. Caesar salad and iceberg wedge salad to... More

In my opinion, the best steakhouse in Calgary. The ribeye is to die for! Brought some guests here recently and all were impressed. I have to say that their non-steak items (short ribs too salty, seafood pasta too bland and heavy) were not great but I suppose they do specialise in steak. Great and friendly service as well!

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
