Located in East Village and housed in the historical Simmons Building along the Bow River, charbar is spearheaded by executive chef Jessica Pelland with the support of co-owners and Top Chef chefs Connie DeSousa and John Jackson. One of Canadas best restaurants partners with Sidewalk Citizen Bakery and Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters to create a collaborative and communal destination. Charbar restaurant features cuts of ultra-dry aged Alberta beef and an ocean wise seafood raw bar, that spills out onto the open air riverfront patios with views of the bow river. At its heart is a custom-made Argentine wood-fired grill honouring the art of asado and the culinary inspirations of Spain and Italy.

The dessert was the layered chocolate cake (okay). So for the price I prefer to go to a Model milk or Pigeonhole which are around the same price but quality are very superior.

Hostess was quite friendly and accommodated our request to sit early. Okay spot in the restaurant. Waitress was cordial and efficient. Food we ordered was civeche, calimari salad and the tenderloin. We also ordered a on tap beer. Pro: appetizers were awesome. Beer quite tasty. Cons: two beers on tap out. Not a great look when two beers and maybe more are out. Tenderloin not really hot. Room temp. Not alot of flavour to the meat. At that price point i would have expected something alot more memorable. Cooked medium rare , good. Disappointing: waiting for out bull which took like 25 mins after our meal was done. I inderstand the flames crowd coming in and it getting busy but i would have expected to be seen a bit more frequently to touch base. Would i come back. Yes but really to try the other food on the menu amd not based on the service or ambience . Vish

We ordered the avocado bruschetta to share - fantastic! As we were pressed for time, we ordered the gaucho burger with fries to share. When it came they had cut it in half for us as we were sharing -- very thoughtful gesture. The fries were beyond phenomenal, soft inside and the perfect crisp on the outside. When it came to the first bite of the burger...that is when our taste buds hit a wall. The burger had an amazing flavour, however the intensity of the salt was extreme bitterness. We were enjoying the ambiance and service so we did not want to put a complaint. However we truly could not eat the burger so we waived our waitress and kindly explained the issue. Instantly and without hesitation, our waitress worked with the kitchen to make it right. They brought us a bit of deconstructed burger fresh out of the kitchen. And goodness they went all out! From the fresh new set of fries to the fresh oven melted cheese. All beautiful separated to allow us to put things together so we could identify the issue better. My co-worker ate the burger with the cheese and aioli in desperation while I added the aioli back into my burger and opted out for the cheese. There are not sufficient words to describe how delicious this burger was to us both and the incredible experience from the service of our waitress and the cooks. They literally all cared so much that they excitedly watched to make sure they got it right. Lesson here: be kind in how you provide the constructive feedback to the food. We certainly did as we wanted to make sure it was not our tastebuds that had changed over the last pandemic years. Give the staff the chance to see if they can make it right. Thank you Charbar for a sincere and caring moment by your professional staff. We will certainly be back again and with more friends.

As soon as we were seated we were all freezing cold (under a vent) so we told the server and she said that it's because it's an old building, but regardless we all ate in our coats. All of us got our food except for one person. He was told there was an error with his order but have some potato wedges on the house while you wait. The problem is, they covered it in hot sauce which he couldn't eat, so that was a waste. The food itself tasted good but everyone said theirs was cold. We didn't send it back as we were on a tight schedule. The server was very pleasant and helpful but she seemed overwhelmed/scattered. We had to ask twice to get our coffees refilled. Overall, the experience was only OK. I would probably still go back for supper but I think the brunch service needs some work.

I’ve been a few times with no real complaints about the food, but the service is usually garbage. This time, the food was forgettable, but our server was good. Host, not so much. It typically has come with the air of privilege that I am eating there. Like the attitude you get from a snooty minimum wage worker at Holt Renfrew, with customers to match. Place has the atmosphere of a seniors home. I guess this is the side effect of success, without humble oversight. Last time I’ll be eating there since the food is now gone to the dark side too. Charcut is better since it isn’t as stuck up, same goes for the the pizza @ Connie & Johns. Hope they turn it around.

Frozen hamburger patties, inedible under seasoned steak, awful salad. The only good thing about the night was the service (which was outstanding), and the bar made a decent cocktail or two. I will never go back. Yuk. EDIT: After this review that manager reached out and invited us back. I agreed because everyone deserves a second chance. We had a lovely rooftop patio table overlooking the river. The food was delicious this time. The service was again very good. I will now go back. Thank you Eduardo for the excellent customer service.

Calamari was decent, minus the big chunks of undercooked lettuce. My wife had the pizza, which seemed to be the best choice, and the butchers cut steak was the real letdown. Absolutely no seasoning and presentation was abysmal. For the price I would avoid Charbar and if you’re going for pizza, just go directly to Connie and Johns (in the building).

Would have been nice to know before sitting down and getting ready to order drinks. No bread with the ceviche, not sure how you’re supposed to eat it, thankfully they Upsold us on the sourdough bread instead of just including it or serving it with nacho chips… Never been told no so many times by a server. Too bad…

Exuberant diners meant the noise level almost prevented normal conversation. Food was just OK. A 10-ounce NY steak was not tender and presented as medium-rare rather than the requested rare. My dining partner’s chicken was very tasty but the portion size was excessive. Still, an Argentinian-inspired dining experience is welcome in Calgary.

One recommandation is, if you can provide any way to keep the steak warm while customers eating, it woule be awsome. The first bite was amazing for our porterhouse, but when the time goes the flavor is not the same as first. Thanks

The empanadas were dry, our mains took well over an hour to come out once we finally did order and my $14 asparagus was no more than 6 overcooked, soggy stalks. Steak was cooked correctly but very salty, pizza was ok. The worst part wasn’t even the food, but the service - our server took ~10 minutes after we sat down before we even got water and when she came to our table to do that she cracked a joke about how slow she had been which made me think it would be faster afterwards. It was not. A simple dinner which started at 7:45 did not end until well after 10pm and neither me or my date left satisfied. I noticed other tables also waving her down for standard needs like water, which led me to believe this was a rampant problem, not focused only on our table. I was previously a fan, but likely won’t be back.
