Pasta was good.
The steak on the other hand, would have expected more "char" and colour on it.
Place was nice though

Ana Marie was the hit of the evening. Found the prices to be on the high side. Quality was average but the evening turned out to be very enjoyable. I still don’t understand what constitutes a $59 charcuterie board (without cheese or bread)? If you go ask for A-M.

Great food and great service. Our server - Mark was fantastic. Went for a steak and was intrigued by the burger and I ate the whole truck. Overall an awesome experience. Watch the bartender. Cleary very good at what he does. Care in every glass.

Been going to Charcut almost as long as they’ve been around and it’s just as good as always, maybe even better. The occasion was an impromptu Friday night date as the kids were at the grandparents for a sleepover.

Some cocktails (boozy and virgin) to get us going, then shared the raclette and bread to start. It was very good, but who doesn’t love melty cheese?

I had the prime rib and my wife the half chicken. Both were outstanding. The prime rib was a little salty in places, but that was my only gripe. The roasted garlic and the horseradish cream paired very well.

Sides were the tomato salad and asparagus. The tomato salad was the standout hit: very simple but a great counter to the heavy meats.

Stuffed full, but not too full for a bag of cookies for the road. A great meal.

Poutine came a bit cold but they re heated for us ( they wanted to make fresh but we declined) gave us free cookies for this small glitch. Overall really great but just find the music
Choice and volume to much .

The restaurant was kind enough to accommodate our request for Impossible burgers, even though they were not on the weekend brunch menu. The burgers were fantastic and we will be back for more.

Well.,as a vegan coming to your restaurant. My burger comes with fries that fry in duck fat and I ask to modify it and I was not as a true vegan there si no way I would eat fries in fat.. so you server and your kitchen was not accommodating

Very very tasty, worth the price. We would recommend to take an additinnal side if you are very hungry, the portion of some plates (not all) are not that big.

With Covid, it was very quiet. They removed so many tables it lost quite a bit of its vibe. The pulled rotisserie chicken sandwich had multiple cartridge pieces which totally turned me off. Daily soup was excellent.

Enjoy the lunch specials. Makes it easy to still make it back to the office in a reasonable time frame. And the cookies are a nice perk.

Overall a very nice experience. We had the Grilled Octopus appetizer which was spicy and really interesting. For mains we had the Bison Brisket with polenta, mushrooms, and bacon and the 12 oz. Prime Rib with creamy horseradish, roasted garlic, and delicious au jus. Everything was really flavorful and the service was outstanding.

I had the beef tenderloin. The cook was spot on! The seasoning on the meat and polenta was under and there was a few bits of asparagus that where stringy and hard to chew. The three cocktails we had were great and I appreciated seeing the bartender taste his drinks to ensure they were good. Our waiter was great. The ambience was perfect, loved the open kitchen. I would definitely come back next time I'm in Calgary, but would stick to cheaper appies as I thought our 250, bill wasn't quite worth it. Either way, it was a good time.

CHARCUT does brunch! Yes - thank goodness they do because we were able to enjoy a reservation for 6 and the food and service is tops as usual! 😄👍🏼

Like many businesses, CHARCUT has to pivot and adapt to the new landscape. The business hours was from Wednesday to Sunday and brunch is available on Saturday and Sunday. Everyone in our party were happy with our choices - including a very picky 5 year old! My nephew ate his cheese and the house-made charcuterie and enjoyed the croissant and all the fresh fruits!

This birthday brunch was truly exceptional. Thank you!
