Rec's for Centre for Performing Arts (YYC)?

My family has tickets for Theatre Calgary this Saturday, and my father wants to treat us to dinner beforehand. In total there will be 7 of us. Now, what we're looking for is a place with a good steak and or prime rib, options for those looking to reduce calorie counts, not over the top in terms of price (Entree's in the $20 to $35 range), and within a reasonable walking distance of the Centre for Performing Arts.

At this point, the options I'm considering are:
Juilliard's
Saltlik
Milestones (last resort)

Can anyone comment?

PS. Anyone know why, when I Google Saltlik, I'm directed to the website for Ruth's Chris?

    I'd suggest Centini's, they're just across the street and they're running a 3 course table d'hôte for $45, this weeks menu looks like they'd fit your criteria.

    PS: My 2 cents about Saltlik, I've only been there once...their choices were very red meat heavy and not a place I'd recommend when counting calories...or for stellar service.

      Teatros is loevley and on the upper end of your price range. Directly across the street from theatre calgary.. and one of my all time fav's inthe city!

        I like Divino's, it's only a little further than Saltlik, which I don't care for (although I've only been once). Murrieta's is good too, a little further. I've never been to Julliard, always meant to try it so if you go be sure to post up a review!

          I'm pretty sure julliard's has succombed to the economic downturn and is closed as of about 2weeks ago.
