Food was mediocre. My wife dish had paper in it. But the waitress just took it and removed it and gave it back to us.

The waitress was annoying hovering over us all the time. As well as forgetting our drink orders.

Raven was an excellent host. She knew her stuff so to speak and got us in and out quickly in time for the play at Martha Cohen. 5 stars to Raven

With our table of 6, three of us had severe allergies. The server, and chefs did an incredible job to ensure we all had amazing meals cooked to our specific needs. One of the best meals I've had in my life. I will be keeping Charcut in mind for all future events.

Food and service was good. It was very loud and we had trouble understanding the waiter when he was explaining the days special.

The snowmaggedon did not deter us from going to CHARCUT for lunch.

We had the lunch all at once with cheesesteak and roasted tomato soup and it was divine!

Thank you for the awesome service and delicious food!

Best lunch in Calgary. A daily soup, a daily sandwich, a daily steak special, and a daily pasta special. And the guarantee you in and out in 45 min. What more could you ask for?

I love introducing a new person to the business lunch only to see them their a week later with someone else.

The prime rib was disappointing. I’ve had it 3 times before and was my favourite prime rib in the city. This time i felt that it was lacking flavour and plated very poorly.
This restaurant used to operate the food service more like family style, but it appears they have changed. The server said we could still order that way, which we did, but the overall experience was significantly diminished.
I’m not sure I’ll be back.

Thank you for asking:

-Service was very good, friendly and attentive
-Ambience was nice; our table was a good size for 5 people
-Food was somewhat disappointing:
oPortions were small
oThe bread with the artichoke appetizer was not near big enough to feed 5 people, and the dip itself was a small quantity
oThe steak I had came cut in pieces; not certain what it was called on the menu; the plate was not warm nor was the steak; and it came with nothing else
oI ordered potatoes with a feta? sauce; enough potatoes but not enough sauce, and I felt the potatoes were undercooked
oA manager did come by and ask how everything was, and I told her about the meal. She did offer to replace it; I declined, and she offered to remove it from the bill. I honestly don’t know if she did or not.

Respectfully,
Sherry

Both food and service were fantastic. Steak, beet salad, poutine, fries - so awesome! We sat kitchen side and were treated like royalty with extra treats - ham and parm taster and cookies to take home. Specifically went there because of Top Chef and Connie DeSouza fame. Wish I lived closer to Calgary!

Lunch was great- I love their lunch specials. However the last time we were there it was very loud. We were a table of 5 and it was difficult to hear the people across the table

Nice venue, good food and drink menu. The service felt as though I were part of an assembly line, very rushed and not exactly friendly or courteous.

We enjoyed the ambiance, the service was very good. My husband ordered the burger and although it was very tasty there was an excessive amount of cheese on it. We both LOVE cheese but this was way too much, he also had to eat it with a knife and fork as it was impossible to pick it up.

I had the Carbonara with added sausage it was tasty and very rich which was expected. Overall it was a nice evening.

Raven, our server, was excellent! We had the tenderloin and it was delicious. Restaurant was great with my gluten allergy. My friends also enjoyed their spaghetti carbonara ... they said it was the best pasta they had ever had.

For how expensive the meals are there it would have been great if they came out warm. Our server was very friendly at first but by the time we got to dessert, we were sitting with empty glasses and my credit card on the table for 20 minutes. Not super impressed with the quality of the food or service that evening.

The food is outstanding. The noise levels/acoustics are horrible, which made it a bit frustrating at times. The server was nice, but goofy, trying to “butter us up” a little too much. Otherwise a great restaurant.

Excellent all round. Acoustics the best for a restaurant that I have been to in quite sometime. You could actually carry on a conversation....something that is hard in a lot of YYC upscale dining establishments.
