Great place great food. Really enjoy the ‘lunch all at once’ option and the changing soups and sandwiches. it was quite loud today which made the conversation a bit strained but otherwise great place for a business lunch.

It was a complete mess, waiter forgot the appetizers, the plates came twice wrong, the risotto was kind of a soup. After many back and forth the manager of the house gave us good discount trying to make it up, but the overall experience with the place was very disappointing. Maybe it was just an unlucky bad day for the place, but considering the impression we had today I don't feel comfortable recommending Charcut to others.

Food was great. Waiter was very average for a fine dining experience. Not very friendly. Forgot drinks didn’t get everyone’s drink order before leaving the table. Other waiter brought food to table- did not check in on our food until we were done. Rude about tip while we were trying to pay. Won’t be on the top of my list of places to come back to.

Overall was happy with food and service but was disappointed the slow roasted prime rib was served in two slices and cold. It was promoted as single slice as big or as small as you wanted ($/oz). When I saw it featured on Food Network it was said to come on a wooden board with trimmings of choice. I got it on a cold plate and sauce had been put on it and started to congeal from being cold. I will try it again one day and hopefully have a better experience.

My favourite place for lunch in the City. Its incredibly fast, and tasty, and ending it with cookies just tops the meal off.

Booked a reservation for three at CHARCUT for my fathers retirement dinner. Staff is very friendly and warm but the food was just okay. My dad ordered the full charcuterie board and my mom and I ordered pasta dishes. My dad loved the charcuterie board but both my mom and I were not keen on the pasta dishes. I ordered the pappardelle and it was in a very loose/watery sauce. The flavour was good but the consistency was not. My mom ordered the gemelli and she did not like it whatsoever. She also advised that the sauce was very loose/watery. She compared it to alphagetti. :S Our waitress comped my mom’s dinner and she also provisioned my dad with a complimentary dessert for his retirement. That was very nice. We also ordered a dozen oysters and the raclette cheese. Both of those dishes were very good but I don’t see myself dining at this restaurant again. You can find far better food in Calgary for more reasonable prices.

We enjoyed a fabulous family meal at CHARCUT!

It was a wee bit noisy but it was Stampede week, so understandable.

Waitress was helpful in my drink decision making and knowledgeable in making recommendations.

Would highly recommend

High noise level over lunch hour. Maybe due to Stampede?

I came to this restraunt as my uncle from out of town wanted to check it out. It was accommodating for a vegetarian for the most part, however anything fried is done so in duck fat, so no fries ect are available to veggies. My pasta was slightly undercooked however the appetizers were great and the dessert was delicious! I wouldnt come here on the regular, but over all it was a good experience.

Watching everyone’s facial expressions at their first bite of the sublime prime rib is extraordinary. As good as mine was the first time, and every subsequent time

This is THE premier Calgary restaurant.

Arrived at 4:50 pm for a 5:00 pm reservation. Was advised they did not start service until 5:00 pm so started out with a negative. Waiter was too attentive...coming by the table too often. Food was okay.

We loved the food! The portions were large, and the taste was excellent! My only suggestion would be to make the 2-person tables slightly bigger, it becomes difficult to manage food and drinks when everything is on the table.

Steakhouses are usually overpriced disappointments. Charcut offered inventive, delicious food with helpful -- at times charming -- service. The best steak house we've eaten at, ever.

Every once in a while I bring a friend who has never been to Charcut and I always get a convert!

Food is flavorful and fresh and for lunch - is truly of great value! My friend ordered the squash salad with green goddess dressing and she can’t stop raving about it!

I had the daily spit-roasted (pork shoulder) and had the greens and soup. So yummy!

Once again, a wonderful visit! Thank you!

The Bison Briscuit was one of the best things I have eaten in my life. Fell apart and tender was an understatement. Would love to come back to Canada and eat again. We saw this restaurant on the show "Big Food Bucket list" and it did not disappoint.
