The staff is very friendly, atmosphere is nice. My only complaint, and all restaurants seem to do it, the place is almost empty so they put you right across from the only other customer!?! Food was exactly as ordered and their steaks are wonderful. Not expensive, and nice selection of beer and wines. They have a lounge which has sports... More

Perfectly cooked steaks, just cooked according to our preferences. Perfect meat. We have not made any reservation for the evening meal and the place was pretty busy but still some space was available. It was not an inexpensive meal, but it was worth the money.

2 of us found this place while in Calgary on business when we were looking for a great Steak Dinner and we were certainly not disappointed. This place came recommended by 2 different hotel staff we spoke with, as well as a Top Google result and TripAdvisor suggestion, the reputation is certainly in line with the expectations and taste. Mid-week... More

We wanted one last taste of Alberta Beef and we were staying at the Hampton Inn so we walked across the street to the Cattle Baron. When I asked our waiter, Emmanual, to talk to me about steak, he proceeded to give us the best description of the types of steaks I have ever heard. The filet mignon, Manhattan cut... More

We dined here due to good reviews in TA, and its location near our hotel. Both my wife and I had the NY strip loin steaks done medium rare. It was done almost perfectly. And the portion was just right. The service was about average or slightly above. If you are in the neighbourhood and looking for steak dinner, your... More

We thought being in cattle country that we would have great steak, but then we're comparing everything to the corn-fed beef of Iowa. I always get prime-rib rare and it wasn't red; yep, it wasn't rare and pretty chewy. I persevered and found some tender bites in the middle, but I was disappointed. My husband's prime rib was medium rare... More

A very good meal. Service was polite and efficient. We arrived from UK and looked on this site for a decent restaurant for a good meal. My wife and I were not disappointed , it was well presented and tasted great. Thoroughly recommend The Cattle Baron to anyone.
