Felt really disappointed with the service, the waitress announced to the whole table that I didn’t notify them of a small bday cake and their would be a charge per piece. Then they added 20% gratuity but never told us and when we noticed it she said oh yeah it included. We all felt like she was trying to double up on the tip. Loved the food and atmosphere but just let the service could have been a bit better.

Service was awesome thanks to our waitress Anna-Marie. She helped us with menu options and made sure our water and drinks were always topped up. Food was excellent - based on all six of us!

I have to start by saying the food was excellent. We had the artichoke dip and it was so good we ended up ordering another! The wine was excellent and smooth (both red and rose), all the entree were well done, and the sides were surprisingly fantastic considering they were just sides. I could eat a whole meal of those Brussel sprouts. But the best part of the entire meal was our server Carson. He gave great recommendations and went above and beyond to make my birthday special. He was making us laugh so hard with this great stories that the whole table was crying from laughter. Next time we have an important dinner we will go out of our way to come to charcut to have Carson as our server again. He made a great meal an unforgettable experience. He was training another server mark who was also great!

Only downfall was that we had to sit in the bar of the adjoined hotel. But this was understandable as we had a last minute reservation.

Food was great and the service was pretty quick.

First visit for the year and was not disappointed. The lunch all at once we ordered were the pork loin sandwich and barley and beef soup and hubby ordered the roast. With always a limited time to do lunch, the service turnaround is always great - efficient and of course, delicious food!

Server was super inexperienced and flustered. I don’t think math and problem solving are skills she has fully developed.
Disappointed that the charcuterie board was only meat. Cake cutting fee?!? Seriously?! $3.50 per person?! Plus, if a bottle of wine is ordered for the table please charge everyone who your poured it for not just one person. It makes for a very awkward point to bring up if the one who is stuck with the full
Cost to pay for it.

Charcut is one of those restaurant experiences that are second to none. The food is always fantastic and the flavors un paralleled. I haven't been in a while, and we went to celebrate our anniversary. I was disappointed that even though I specified it was our anniversary in the OpenTable reservation no reference was made to it.

The only thing that was disappointing was during our meal a family with children were sat right beside us. The parents asked for a children's menu, which they don't have because this restaurant doesn't cater to that demographic. The children were loud and unruly, which really diminished our dining experience.

We ordered truffle duck fat poutine, smoked prime rib, beef tenderloin, brussel sprouts, salted caramel chocolate pudding, and two cocktails.
We were a bit disappointed on not being able to get a table and were seated at the bar with a reso, however the bartenders were attentive to us our entire stay so the experience was still really good. The chairs had backs which I liked so I could hang my coat. The food was really good and I thought the greens that accompanied my cut of prime rib were a nice touch. The option to choose how many oz I would like to order for prime rib was why we chose this restaurant. Overall we really enjoyed our dinner!

Such an enjoyable evening. We were served by Raven and we loved her vibrancy and knowledge of both food and beverage. She was a definite asset to making our evening special. We started out with the charcuterie board and as have always found, the meats were tasty and a great start to the meal. Our table had prime rib, porchetta and cod dishes and there wasn’t a crumb leftover. The flavours were phenomenal, well plated and we were all very happy with our choices. We don’t order dessert often but we had the sticky toffee pudding and cheesecake and were glad we did. Decadent! This was one of the best meals we have had in a while. Service, food and ambiance will be what brings us back again soon.

Prime beef for sandwich was off; small portions, foccacia isn’t the best choice for a wet sandwich, fell apart easily.

Only 2 bathroom stalls for the restaurant and one had no toilet paper. Please just leave extra rolls under the counter in a basket or something. The server seemed rushed and not interested in her work. Steak was good, but Brussels sprouts were too salty. Pasta was delicious. My biggest issue was the poor attention from the server and no TP.

This was our first visit and will not be our last to Charcut, it will likely become our go to dining experience when in Calgary. Service was impeccable, from the moment you walk in the door to the moment you leave you feel like an appreciated guest. There was a Calgary dining experience special on when we went, it allowed us to try many dishes at a fantastic price. The charcuterie, cheese and olive board was amazing. Things I don't normally like, such as terrine, were a treat coming from this kitchen. The pasta was the highlight of my night - we had the gemelli with white bolognaise I am still thinking about it a few days later. The steak, mushrooms and brussel sprouts were also fantastic. There was so much food we were unable to finish the dessert, brussel sprouts and steak and they were happy to pack that up for us. I would highly recommend this restaurant, it is an experience not just a meal.

Service was more casual and less attentive than it was during my last visit (two years ago). Tenderloin was really 'meh' and underwhelming. Should have ordered the butcher's steak instead. Brussels sprouts were phenomenal. Raclette cheese was amazing. Good, quiet, cozy ambiance.

It was such a wonderful experience. I arrived a bit early (as I am a guest using Uber in Calgary), and the front staff was able to accommodate me half hour before my reservation. The server was fantastic and she gave great recommendations for the food. Everything was mouth watering and I wish my stomach was as big as my eyes; I wanted to eat everything that I saw come out of the kitchen. I experienced wild boar bacon and was NOT disappointed. Oh Good Lord I am still thinking of the meal I had and am drooling. Met my expectations and more. Would recommend to anyone visiting Calgary!
