    Great food, great service. We were seated in the back which didn’t offer the best view and the chairs weren’t the most comfy. I’m being picky, overall it was a great experience.

    I did not enjoy the food here, it made me feel unwell. I didn't like the flavor of the steak and it didn't seem to be a mistake, but a matter of taste and style.

    Went for YYC EXP and the steak and frites were quite bland. We needed to ask for salt. The salad was very good but nothing out of this world. Desert was cookies. I would go for lunch specials and never do Yyc exp there again. Service was great.

    We are from Saskatoon. Always stay at Fairmont going through to BC and go to charcut. Very disappointed in the meal this time, we were the only patrons in the restaurant at time. All around meal was very average and when we told the waiter the brussel sprouts were really Carli my he just said that it was the sauce and the way it was. My wife had the pasta which was very average and my steak was just ok. Always expect more that’s why we go. Won’t be going back unfortunately, too many others to choose from in area.

    Limited breakfast menu not a brunch menu and only open to 11:00am. Had the cold buffet that touted a cheese board with "local and Quebec cheeses". Only two cheeses brie and an old cheddar, no crackers. The croissant was great! Service was good, would have liked to have known that they offered only four items on the breakfast menu, not a brunch place.

    Used to be a great restaurant, now, the food is mediocre. The rotisserie of the day, pork, was tough dry and flavorless. The seating and decor of the restaurant is well worn,and in need of a refresh. Staff are pleasant and attentive as they’ve always been.

    Very very poor experience this evening at Charcut. We waited over an hour and a half for our food after our order was put in. No explanation was given as to why it took so long until we had to awkwardly get up from our table to track down our server who seemed to have forgotten about us. We were not given an explanation, but were told that our food had still not even started being prepared at that time. The manager came over to appropriately apologize and told us that we would “not have a bill” but then she proceeded to change her mind and charged us 133$ anyways. We were told the food would be made quickly at that point so we agreed to stay, then as the food was being delivered we were told they were out of the actual side dish we ordered and they decided on another option for us without telling/asking us about it. Very very very poor experience overall, we were really looking forward to this dinner and it was a complete let down. Very disappointed. Would not recommend.

    Hostess said our table would be ready in 5 min. She seated 5 couples before I went and found a manager. The manager seated us. She was great as she continued to be out server for the night. We ordered the $140 steak for 2. We ordered medium rare and the meat came out sliced and completely raw the whole way through... Wasn't a good first experience, especially on Valentine's day!! Very disappointed and only took off 1 order of drinks to try to save face. If you ask me our meal should have been free. Since I'm cooking it myself again tonight....

    Very friendly server. Food came out nicely spaced out. Did not feel rushed to finish up. Very busy but didn’t feel it. A little load but that seems the normal in downtown restaurants. Definitely recommend and will put it on the list of restaurants to return to.

    Took too long to get our drinks. The Bellini was not very good at all, the peroni draught beer was not cold. The entire dining experience took 1 hour and 30 minutes. Ordered a couple steaks and salads, should not have taken that long. Did not care for dessert, wanted to leave and go home.

    Have been to Charcut multiple times and have found the service to be efficient and pleasant so this is hopefully a one off bad experience. Sat down at 11:45. Got our drinks quickly but our order wasn’t taken for another 20 minutes which meant our food arrived very late. No offer to refill the soft drinks. Ordered the “lunch all at once” but the optional sides were never discussed (soup or salad). Very weak effort at apologies once the meal was finally over.

    The restaurant was so loud we could barely hear each other. Our food was brought to the wrong table. For the sandwich it could not be picked up by hand, the homemade ketchup was so sweet we could not eat it and for the burger the house cured bacon was more like beef jerky and was so hard to bite through that it hurt my teeth. We were also sat by the food line which was loud and plates were being dropped.

    Great food and service. Not the restaurant’s fault but the City Bylaw officer has to find another place to park or turn off their red and blue flashing lights as the lights were flashing inside the restaurant into everyone’s eyes.
