Diner Reviews
  • "I had the express lunch with warm cookies to go. The food was fantastic, portions generous (I couldn't eat it all) and I really liked the way the wait staff worked as a team - attentive and lovely people!"

  • "We had supper at Charcut based on a friend's recommendation. We were looking forward to the creativity and flavors that we had read about in restaurant reviews and from our friend. We were unfortunately disappointed. We both had salads to start, the beet salad and tomato salads. They were presented nicely but lacked flavour. We both had prime rib as we had heard about Albertan beef and were looking forward to it. The roast was cooked nicely but the meat again did not have much flavour and was a little on the tough side. The sides were huge portions but I was disappointed to see that summer squash was only zucchini. Overall, I felt the meal was lacking flavour and was expensive for what we got and did not justify the rave reviews."

  • "Fabulous meal with superb flavours! The charcuterie board had a great selection of meats, so much so, that the four of us couldn't finish it. The pork entree was very good and the fries second to none. I would recommend having one or two familiar beers on the menu for those who aren't adventurous. A good selection of wine!"

  • "Good food but very limited options for steak considering its name"

  • "We had a good time at Charcut, but given all the hype I don't think it held up. It was extremely noisy, I could barely have a conversation with my fiance and the menu is quite small although from what I understand always changing. The tuna conserva was a fantastic starter, mains were good as were drinks. Fine experience & service but in no rush to go back."

  • "I've come to Charcut for their lunch many times and am always blown away by the quality of the food. This most recent experience was marred by incredibly poor service. I recognize it's busy during lunch, however our meal took an hour and a half due to the large waits to actually get orders in and getting our food. Meal was delicious, but when you need to get back to the office, it's unacceptable to have waits like we did. I'll be coming back for the great food. I hope I don't get a repeat in the service experience."

  • "I always eat at CHARCUT for special occasions or for lunch with my sister and I've always tried something different and am never disappointed. Service is awesome, love the waiters/waitresses and I personally love the interior."

  • "Went to Charcut for lunch for a friends birthday. I had the meatball sandwich which was more like a meatloaf sandwich and my friend had a steak and it was superb. Unfortunately the cookies which we got for desert that are usually served warm weren't warm and not as tasty. The most disappointing part was our service. Our server explained she usually worked nights and that's why she was "off". She may have been off but she sure didn't take anything off our bill."

  • "Over priced very limited menu totally directed to hitting the corporate expense account hard. Service is fine What other restaurant in the province has a menu that sells wine by the taste (Jacked up at $11/ 2 oz?)"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I came from Edmonton to the Stampede and have always heard great things about Charcut. We made a last minute reservation for dinner and arrived a bit early but they accommodated us quickly. The decor was rustic and stylish. It was our first time here and the menu was a bit confusing. Got the prime rib and steak. I liked that we were able to choose how many ounces we wanted for the meals. It was cooked to absolute perfection! Would definitely come back again to try more food at Charcut."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Charcut is my go-to spot for week days lunch dates. Their lunch specials are always delicious and well priced. Service is fantastic and the décor nice. I even love the piggy paper clips they attach to the bills! I highly recommend this place."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My boyfriend doesn't get easily impressed or excited but he thought our experience at Charcut was outstanding. The service was good , the waitress knew the menu inside out and when he saw his favourite beer it was pretty much a slam dunk. I really like this restaurant so we will become regulars."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Lunch at Charcut was excellent! First time there. Food and service were outstanding! More than met its advanced billing around town."

  • "Love this place! Always consistent in quality, always amazing food, never disappoints!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "The prime rib is great (as well as their other appies) and the service is excellent. It is a bit loud so it can be difficult to have good conversation, but all in all, a good experience. Will return for certain!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Should have greater number of menu selections that are NOT "for two". This would have provided greater opportunity to sample menu offerings, and to determine IF we would choose to come back as a 'two-some' again."

  • "We dined there during Stampede. We found the food to be just OK. The prices were high for the quality/quantity of food we received. Our server was very knowledgeable."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Ambience and service are fantastic. Our server was very social and friendly, as well as knowledgeable with the menu. Great beer and wine section. Food servings were quite large for a restaurant of this particular tier. Thanks for a wonderful experience!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The food and service were both outstanding. The best charcuterie board, and the most amazing carrot cake that I`ve ever had."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "This was our third visit to CHARCUT, but our first time sampling the house-made sausage! The bar rose admirably to the challenge of making me a delicious and fruity but non-alcoholic drink! Have not yet had anything I didn't adore here!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "My US-based family was blown away from the awesome cuisine made the Chef Jessica and the culinary team. The rabbit terrine was tasty (first time for us to try it!) and the mortadella and the house made sausage were divine! Our men ordered the 9oz burger and was very impressed with the taste and the ladies got the chimichurri steak which was fabulous as well. Would have loved to see Chef Connie or Chef John but we were equally delighted and honored to meet Chef Jessica - and we're looking forward to the opening of the charbar next year! Kudos all around. Our Washington based relatives were ecstatic that we chose Charcut for dinner! Thank you for the wonderful meal."

  • "Great spot to watch the end of the Stampede Parade, but the food is the attraction at this restaurant. Tables set up along Centre St near 9 Av provide the perfect spot for parade and people-watching. The lunch special featuring sandwich of the day, Parmesan fries, soup/salad and 2 warm chocolate chip cookies keeps me going back - delicious every time! The service is consistently attentive and friendly."

  • "Love it! Never been disappointed with the food or service!"

  • "Charcut is our favourite place for birthday lunches because of the variety, tasty, fresh, and meticulously done food! We were taken care of from the moment we got in to the time we checked out and we always enjoy going to Charcut because of the stellar service and food! Drinks are great too but unfortunately we can't indulge as we have to head back to work. It's 5-stars all the way! Thank you!"

  • "Food was fantastic from appetizer through dessert. Loved the fresh herbs they used. Service was fantatic. Never felt rushed but everything came at just the right time."

  • "A wonderful evening with both the food and service enjoyed by everyone at our table. We will all be back."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Although a bit overpriced, it was justified with great food. The dinner for two we ordered (NY strip steak) was cooked exactly to our liking. And it was a whole lotta food, we could not finish it. You will definitely not leave hungry!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We order "charcut board" and some cheese as an appetizer and it was super. Then some of us order prime ribs and I order the chimichurri steak. 100% satisfaction."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Restaurant offers very tasty food that could make the dining experience quite memorable. The noise level, unfortunately spoils the experience. It's so loud we can't have a decent conversation."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I had come there for dinner tuesday June 24th. We had an amazing dinner. The food was exceptional. Not to mention a great server who made our time there much more laid back and relaxed. Her name was Aisha I believe. Will definitely be back to try more of the great food and wine."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The food here is fantastic all of the time, however, they have a top-quality affordable lunch special that gets you in and out in 45 minutes, and even comes with a bag of freshly made cookies. I love this place for lunch."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "I am a big fan of CHARCUT and the food is ALWAYS amazing. We appreciate the updating menu - but when you remove amazing items like the pretzels - we were sad. As one who continually returns, having some consistency on great items is king."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Went here for my boyfriends birthday. The food was good but I felt that the server didn't explain the menu very well. The sides are HUGE and didn't realize that half orders are available so we had a tremendous amount of wasted food...in my opinion, the servers should tell you if you're ordering too much food for in this case 2 people. Another restaurant to scratch off the list. I wouldn't rush to go back."

  • "My husband and I went To Charcut to celebrate our 10th anniversary. It was a perfect choice. The food was great, service was amazing. We'll definitely go back, and not just for special occasions."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "One of the finest meals I have had the pleasure of experiencing, unique food, great service, relaxed atmosphere, excellent wine. A little pricey but as the old adage goes, you get what you pay for. A great place to enjoy my wife's company on her birthday. Will be back."

  • "Had the beets with house made goat cheese. The beets were heavenly, but the goat cheese was incredibly salty. The main was the butcher steak with chimichurri which was fantastic, but the pickled vegetables were also terribly salty. The service was amazing though!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Was my first visit here and had heard read good reviews. Have to say was somewhat disappointed - sausage burger was salty and very dry."

  • "Consistently reliable, fast and predictably good food. Love the option of eating in the windows of the hotel lounge. Great service."
