While visiting a friend in Calgary we wanted to have a special meal. We used a website to search for the highest rated restaurants and Charcut came up as one of the top restaurants in Calgary. We made reservations a couple of days in advance as it was quite popular. Charcut is set right in downtown Calgary. We were seated... More

This was a very positive experience, but it just doesn't live up to the rank of number 5 restaurant in Canada. It deserves, perhaps, to be in the top 100, but 5 is far too high. That being said, if you adjust expectations accordingly you won't be disappointed. The service was very knowledgable - excellent. The food was good, but... More

It's an average to decent restaurant in its catagory. For the prices that are charged I expected a tastier meal. Sampled two appetizers and three main courses and they was nothing truly exemplary. I appreciated the sourcing of the food, but it appeared the kitchen and bar were rushed. The lamb was cooked nicely but lacked seasoning. That being said,... More

We were hoping for a memorable experience for a special birthday, and just ended up with a nice dinner in a nice enough place. The start was a little negative as our reservation was for 7 and they put us at a table that would have fit 6 comfortably. Having people at one side of the table a little elbow... More

There were 8 of us went to Charcut for a friends 60th Birthday. I had read several reviews & was a bit hesitant after talking to a few people who did not have great experiences at this restaurant. The birthday boy chose it & he's a meat eater. Our waitress was very helpful & put together an appetizer arrangement she... More

Worst restaurant experience in Calgary. The prime rib was the worst piece of meat, overcooked, flavourless. One of the guest had a 8 oz steak created by a 5 oz steak and a sliver of fat/meat that looked like leftover shards you feed a dog. There are no vegetarian options but they did offer the guest pasta which was likely... More

Charcut is an outstanding choice for a business lunch or an after hours dinner. Exquisitely prepared dishes in a warm and inviting space.

Charcut has received multiple awards in the shirt 2 plus years they've been in business for some very good reasons. The quality of food ( so much of it is handmade and to die for) is next to none, especially their country sausage, their super fresh salads and amazing specialty drinks. Get Jamie to make his amazing cocktail, you won't... More

I go here all the time for business lunches. They have a $15 soup and sandwich plate that's quite good.
