CHARCUT is an Italian Roast House run by co-chefs John Jackson and Connie DeSousa, who you might recognize from her appearances on Top Chef Canada, Top Chef All Stars and most recently, as the judge for the Food Network’s Fire Masters. Together, they are two of Canada’s most celebrated chefs. CHARCUT is celebrating its 12th year as the best destination restaurant in Calgary. It is a meat-centric and fresh pasta paradise with a custom-built rotisserie, smoker and char-broiler, featuring amazing cuts of Alberta beef, whole rotisserie chickens and house made bronze-die-cut pastas. Ingredients are sourced from small, local farmers, ranchers and artisan producers, minimising the miles food travels while supporting local.

    Steve our server was not only a lovely human being but his service was second to none. He explained the food and wine menu to perfection in order to make our choices. The food was delicious and was a lovely way to celebrate our last night in Canada.

    The prime rib was perfectly cooked but nothing was amazing. The horse radish had no flavour, the truffle poutine was tasty, the asparagus had a sauce that was blah. I don't think I would go back, not worth the price.

    The branzino my colleague ordered looked like beef jerky / the sole of a shoe with lots of miles on it. The server said he noticed that when he picked it up from the kitchen. It never should have arrived at our table. It was appalling. I would never go back to your establishment.

    Was decent but for the price wasn't wow'd. We all ordered the prime rib and none of us were able to order to how we would like it as they can only do medium or well done on it. But the drinks were fantastic, and the waitress was lovely.

    Exceptional food, wine and service, local products. We ordered the charcuterie board and that was truly outstanding. I'd heard rave reviews about the poutine and was probably expecting too much (it was very good still). I wish the server had pointed out that we ordered too much food for two, we would have enjoyed the meal more if we didn't feel we were wasting. Also, when we inquired about the cute ribbons on top of the salad, our server said "oh those are the fried capers" (she clearly had no idea what either "fried" or "capers" meant, because that was neither fried nor capers). They turned out to be shaved celery... In such a good restaurant, I expected servers to at least be aware of the ingredients on the plate. But seriously it's our only negative point.

    We went with friends and we were greeted by our server for 15 min then he took another 15 to get our drinks. He ended up putting in our entire order to come at once including the appetizers so we were overloaded and starving. Our server was unapologetic and then we were charged an automatic gratuity after our terrible service. The food was good with the exception of the pasta. Likely will not return!

    Really superior service from Stephen. Steaks and drinks very good although sides could have better variety (needs a lighter salad choice). Kitchen did not follow specific request to leave peanut butter cream off the chocolate torte: not a huge deal but it was an easy request.

    Both my wife & I ordered prime rib medium-rare for both of us. First the Parmesan fries came & then the prime ribs. Hers was perfectly cooked & mine was well done. When I sent it back the waitress appeared 5 mins after to inform me that they were now out of prime rib. She offered a filet at a higher price of course which I got. 20 minutes later my steak came, coke fries left & no offer for new hot ones. My wife of course was finished w/her dinner so she got to sit & watch me eat. For the prices this place charges, trust me & go elsewhere. Definitely not worth it!!

    I really wanted to love this restaurant - and I did really like it, but there were a few items that prevented it from getting 5 stars. It is a beautiful restaurant - quite picturesque. However, that beauty comes with a cost - the chairs were incredibly uncomfortable to sit it - and the booth wasnt that much more comfortable. Service was excellent - I do think he may have sold us more that what was needed. We started with the cheesy focaccia and wanted to order 1 order of the charcuterie - he talked us into 2 - it was clearly one too many. Food was top notch - the meat on the charcuterie board was made in house and was delicious - as was the focaccia. the pork chop could have been one of the best (and biggest) I have ever had. Two of us split the pork chop and a third person was considering it as well - we should have been informed that the chop could easily feed 3 - but alas, we went home with practically a full chop - everyone at the table said it was one of the best they ever had. the rump steak special was good - not outstanding. The filet mignon is exactly what you would want in a filet - moist, tender and delicious. I was stuffed after dinner, but one of our diners insisted on the dessert tray - so we got two of them for the table. we plowed through those like a hot knife through warm butter - they were excellent. Wine list was good - lots of high end wines and some mid range prices. If you like meat, this is a great restaurant for you - go easy on the ordering as the portions are quite large.

    The entire staff at charcuterie was amazing! Our server Nikki was very attentive, made sure we were well taken care of throughout our meal and was very kind and pleasant! We were treated to some cocktails the bar staff was experimenting with that turned out fantastic. Everything that came out of the kitchen was absolutely on point, and Sous-chef Hannah stopped by the table to chat and make sure that was the case! As a former restaurant manager myself, it was a pleasure to sit back and watch the way everything operated. Overall fantastic food, great service, and great atmosphere made this one of the most enjoyable nights out I’ve had in years. Bravo CHARCUT team!

    Drinks were great and refreshing. Ordered the butcher cut steaks (striploin). The steaks themselves were good, but not great. Could have used a little more seasoning on the steak (either just salt and pepper or something). Ordered side of asparagus, and some pieces were a little undercooked.

    Really disappointing! We booked for 7pm, our table wasn’t ready and the hostess was too busy on the phone to deal with us. We then tried to order and they were out of three entrees.Ordered a 2017 bottle of wine and got a 2019 which we noticed halfway thru and mentioned it to the waiter. His response. “Caught” then the bartender came over and tried to sell up sell us a 2017 bottle for double the price. All of us felt this place was over priced, food was good, not great and dinner for 4 with 2 bottles of wine was $600. There are way better places in Calgary to spend that kind of money and have honest service.

    Terrible experience. We waited for over 1 hour for our food. We were told our order was not placed somehow until 40 mins later. Instead we were asked multiple time if we want more drinks. At the end, we spent 90 dollars on 3 bottles of beers and 3 cocktails without food. Ridiculous
