Business meeting for 4 people at 1pm, that went to 3:30pm. We ended up having two of the steak specials with salad, and two of the fish specials on vegetables (special). 2 of the 4 possible lunch specials. Drinks flowed, the the server was amazing, her recommendations for wine were spot on, and she was present without being in the way of the meeting. Everyone was thrilled. A+, the best lunch in town, would recommend.

The lunch sandwich, fries, soup and cookies are a sweet deal.
My colleague had the burger which he said was good but there was too much cheese on it.

My partner and I went for my 30th birthday on a Saturday night. The restaurant is nice, but it is quite loud. Our food was good - I ordered the prime rib, which was cooked perfectly. My partner had the steak which was also cooked well, though a little on the salty side. The appetizer sizes seem very small considering the price, so I would not order a starter again. Overall it was a good experience and I would recommend it, though not for an intimate evening.

I have eaten there several times and it has always been very good. When I booked this time, the system indicated “Bar seating only”. I didn’t realize this meant the lobby bar in LeGermain which is next door and completely void of any atmosphere at all. It took quite a while for the food, so my soup, fries and pulled pork sandwich were all cold. I suspect it sat around for a while before someone noticed. This was all due to the “remote” location, I am sure. Surprisingly, the pulled pork was as bland as the room. Well below the standard I was expecting. I will be back, but never again in the room next door.

Overall experience was good, however not as good as previous meals we have had there. The pasta dish my wife ordered was described as having a spicy sausage included with white beans but instead was pulled pork and over-sauced. Not typical for CC. Perhaps all the goodness has gone to Charbar.

Service , food, and location of the restaurant was amazing! Our overall dining experience was so enjoyable thanks to our server, who not only gave us excellent menu suggestion, but she was also able to offer perfect wine pairings with our meals. If you get a opportunity to dine at CHARCUT, I would highly recommend trying the poutine... GAME CHANGER!

We won’t be back!
Our waiter didn’t get our order right and didn’t fix it!
The food came out cold and was sub par ...and to top it off, after we paid our bill(our bad for not looking), we were charged for items we didn’t even order!?
Was a very poor dinning experience all round.

For the price of the food, the quality was sub-par. My $50 steak was overcooked, dry and small. The sides to the steak were bland, and the brussel sprouts were overly salty. Even the wine (for $17 a glass) was mediocre at best. The service was good, but I would not eat here again - if I'm going to drop over $100 on dinner for two the food itself has to be much better.

The establishment looks nice enough but the menus were worn, torn, and dirty. The food was over priced for what it was. On top of that, we ordered a side of crackers for the meat charcuterie and were charged an extra $12, which I find excessive. Our server was amazing but it's not enough to bring us back.

We took our younger step-son to Charcuts for his birthday. We've been to Charcuts before and have always enjoyed our meal there. This was no exception. The food came out promptly and excellent. Our step-son really enjoyed the food as well. He indicated if he were to go again, he'd get an appetizer - he has a bigger appetite than my husband or I. For dessert, a small candle was added to his dish. A nice gesture which just what he liked. He had beef brisket & my husband & I had the prime rib roast. For sides, we had the grilled brussel sprouts, the winter squash and duck fried fries. Dessert was the cheesecake for my husband & I while my step-son had the salted caramel. All excellent.

The food was excellent! the lunch specials never disappoint and so affordable! the potato and bacon soup was out of this world and they even brought dessert (for free) to my coworker since we were celebrating his birthday that day. The amazing chef DeSousa passed by our table to ensure the food was good and it really elevated the whole experience for the 5 of us...we will come back for sure!
