Great place for a business meeting if you want to impress a client. Incredible food, very reasonable prices and attentive service. It’s a Calgary institution for a reason.

More or less centrally located, Charcut for me offers great food without breaking the bank. And the staff are amazing.

We were a party of 6 celebrating an 85th birthday dinner as well as a despedida for our guest from Dubai. The whole experience was excellent from coat check till the end. Carson took care of us really well. He suggested a group sharing meal option which we were glad we took. The steaks we ordered were cooked perfectly to specific requests and the sides were plenty enough for sharing. The desserts “on the house” was a surprise and of course very well appreciated. Excellent food and dining experience!

We will be back Feb 21 with additional clients. We first got a knowledge of this restaurant from Top Chef Canada of which Connie was our favourite. Looking forward to eating there again.

The prime rib was overly smoked and overcooked. Charcut used to be one of my most favourite restaurants in Calgary but I wouldn’t recommend it anymore.

It was our first time to Charcut and we had a lovely meal. The Happy Hour menu was a good value for the quality of food. At our table we enjoyed the poutine, artichoke dip, tuna, burgers, steak, pasta and salted caramel chocolate dessert. All the staff were very friendly. We are looking forward to going back and would definitely recommend it to a friend.

The all at once sandwich was good, but not as great as usual. A very quiet day at the restaurant was convenient for a conference call meeting we had.

A bit pricey but well worth it. The octopus was outstanding to start with and our server, Rachel, was well on her game....when it comes to wine, she knows her stuff. There were five of us for dinner and after a bottle of wine and a few beer, there was no change from a $500 bill, but you get what you pay for.

This was our 3rd Christmas Eve at Charcut. My son is gluten intolerant and they offer to do everything on the menu GF! We had 6 plates, 5 out of 6 were awesome. Appetizer: Beet Salad & Artichoke Dip - Delicious! Side Dishes - Poutine & Squash with Goat Cheese - both to die for! Main Courses - Brisket & Prime Rib - the brisket was amazing, the prime rib was thinly cut, overcooked and bland. It was the only thing that was disappointing - unfortunately it was my main dish. The food, ambiance, wine selection, service is always wonderful! We will be back Christmas Eve 2020!

There was about an inch of oil at the bottom of my pasta dish, couldn’t finish it. Charcuterie was only meats, no cheese or pickled veg so became tiresome quickly, eating too much of the same thing. I had always heard great things about Charcut, but was very disappointed especially considering the price. Service was good.

Phenomenal food and service!!! We had a delicious dinner. The tuna appetizer with the chips was incredible and the prime rib with the Brussel sprouts was mind blowing! Then the salted caramel dessert was so amazing I could’ve had 10 of them. I highly recommend Charcut!!! 10 out of 10!

The rotisserie was absolutely fantastic at lunch. Charcut’s Lynch combo cannot be beat on flavour or on price! Our server was a real pro. Great experience overall.

We were staying downtown during the weekend and decided to go to Charcut for dinner and was happy with our last-minute choice!

Kristen and her team always have their A-game! We were promptly seated and had Carson as our wait staff. It was busy on a Friday night as they had both the hotel lounge and the restaurant abuzz with patrons but we had all our food served in no time.

We chose a squash (omg, this is SO good) and Parmesan fries as our side and I had the beef with chimichurri sauce and hubby had porchetta. We also had the tuna crudo and the chilies had the right zing to it.

It was a great evening! Thank you for the fantastic supper!

The service was great! Recommended we get the family platter ordered steak & prime rib. It came on one slab with our two sides. The meat was cut and everything was scrumptious!! It was a great experience.

I made a reservation over 2 weeks in advance for a client meeting. We received a call the day of, telling me we that we needed to be out by 6pm because someone else needed the table and then reminded again when we checked in. I have never felt pressured or told that we needed to be out by a certain time at any other restaurant. When the waitress came to take our order, after we said we wanted steaks, we were told that they were all out. Why weren’t we told when they called us or when we checked in? At that point we likely would have went somewhere else. Overall the waitress was friendly and the food was decent.
