We left feeling a bit disappointed in the overall experience to be honest. Our server was friendly, but he was overrun with tables. It felt like he was on the run literally all night and we felt guilty asking any questions about the menu etc. It made the whole experience feel rushed. The food was good, but overpriced for just a piece of meat. Really wish sides were included. Overall it didn’t feel welcoming or like the relaxing date night out we were hoping for.

Delicious and very generous portions of food (the dessert was so good, I wished we had less meat on our plates and more dessert!!)

We've heard a lot about Charcut and were excited to give it a try. We found it...dull in comparison to similar restaurants. The atmosphere was sterile, the food was nothing to write home about, and pretty much the entire kitchen staff were leaning on the counters with their cell phones out.

Service was great, our waitress was friendly, knowledgable, prompt and professional.
Food was sooooo good. I hate brussel sprouts and they made them sooo good, I love it.
Great atmosphere.

I was really happy with the OpenTable booking process, and with the Charcut restaurant. Great food, great service, great place to meet and talk for lunch! Lunch deal (soup, salad with awesome meat, fries) was a great deal.

The food was mediocre and not at all what we were expecting based on the descriptions on the menu. I have been to this restaurant many times for lunch and have always loved their food, but this dinner was disappointing.

Meal was inconsistent. Charcuterie board was only meat. We added bread and cheese, and it was extremely small. The charcuterie board was very oversized. The entrees were also inconsistent, no plate looked alike, bison brisket looked different. The cod dishes looked very different. Slow service from appetizer to entree.

I brought a couple of friends who were new to the Charcut experience. We were all so impressed at the amazing service! The food was absolutely delicious! My friend wanted the tomato dip bottled to take home with her. I absolutely loved our time there!

Charcut has amazing food options, all prepared fresh with great flavours and combinations. The 'all in one' lunch options are always great, and I will definitely be making this a regular goto spot.

Had the burger, poutine, fries, and some drinks. The burger left a lot to be desired - the patty appeared to have been overly handled and manipulated. Also, the bun was overly saturated with condiment. Poutine was fantastic as were the accompanying fries. Drinks were made well too.

The service was fabulous. Most of the food was too but the porchetta and specifically the grits or lack there of was disappointing. It was a bit of a soupy mess. The taste was good but the grits were really not there

The restaurant and the servers are excellent. Prices are reasonable and service was fast over the lunch hour. My only question is that the food itself seemed a little disappointing. Personally, I want something more traditional and less creative. The menu items offer good choices, but the design and presentation were just not what I was expecting. Nevertheless, I will go back.

Always my favorite lunch spot! Love that they get you in and out in 45 minutes and you can't get a much better deal than the Lunch All at Once. YUM!

Typically the food is pretty good but this time the burger was way overcooked and dry. It was tough to get down.

Excellent service and food.
Only downside was being seated next to the entrance to the restaurant. There is a street entrance and then a 2nd door to the seating area. Even with the interior door closed it was chilly. If I were to dine there again I would want to sit elsewhere.

Overall food and service were amazing. We had the bison & polenta ... it was AWESOME.

The only drawback were the chairs. They were uncomfortable due to lack of back support and strange sizing. Also, the leather seats were a bit worn down so it felt like you were sitting in a dip. My husband suggested I collect my coat from coat check & fold it up on my chair which helped enormously. If we go again, we will ask for the half booth areas.

Had not been to restaurant in several years. Our server was excellent - Rachel was very professional and personable. Food was as good as we remembered, we enjoyed the charcuterie board and appreciated the focaccia- frankly, the No bread conceit was just as tiresome as it always was but Rachel was quick to provide us with enough to eat with the charcuterie. Sorry Charcut - I like to have a bit of bread with the meat, it just goes! We were four, and because we were off to Vertigo theatre for 7:30 show, we decided to share 3 dishes as the entrees, the poutine, which was delicious but we could have used a bit more gravy, the bison which was fantastic and the brown butter orichiette, also wonderful. It was just the right amount of food...we treated ourselves to dessert, which we don’t often do and we each had a different one x Nutella gelato - big portion but really good, blueberry white chocolate cheesecake, a salted caramel milk chocolate pudding and a whipped cheesecake. All four were delicious, but the pudding was really tasty and satisfying, a very balanced dessert - not too sweet, not too large and delicious crunchy crumbles on top. All in all, an enjoyable and satisfying meal. Thanks Charcut for maintaining consistency and quality over the years

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.
