Located in East Village and housed in the historical Simmons Building along the Bow River, charbar is spearheaded by executive chef Jessica Pelland with the support of co-owners and Top Chef chefs Connie DeSousa and John Jackson. One of Canadas best restaurants partners with Sidewalk Citizen Bakery and Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters to create a collaborative and communal destination. Charbar restaurant features cuts of ultra-dry aged Alberta beef and an ocean wise seafood raw bar, that spills out onto the open air riverfront patios with views of the bow river. At its heart is a custom-made Argentine wood-fired grill honouring the art of asado and the culinary inspirations of Spain and Italy.

    This review is for Connie and John’s Rooftop which I booked though Charcut. Great patio for drinks, do not go there to eat… it’s terrible. Baked fatty chicken wings Mignonette for the oysters does not go with them, huge fail. Only other option was basically huge pizzas which we just wanted appetizers. Honestly amazed they could serve these items at the price they are asking and they aren’t out of business already

    Our food at Charbar as usual was top notch. Our group had avocado pistachio bruschetta (served with Sidewalk Citizen Bakery sourdough), shaved summer squash salad, Alberta tenderloin and a New York strip both cooked perfectly. Our friend was from Texas and she was impressed! Our server was great and I love the Simmons Building.

    Very good food, great service, our out of town guest was well impressed. The pork steak was fantastic, as what ever the sliced steak was. Burger was well built. All in all most good. A little noisy at times, lots of hard, reflective surfaces.
