CHARCUT Ratings and Reviews
This was my first time at Charcut. I really enjoyed the Prime Rib - it was cooked to perfection & melted in my mouth with every bite. We also ordered the octopus and oysters to start which were also fantastic. The octopus was cooked in an amazing sauce & was very tender. The dessert was great too! Overall, I really enjoyed my experience here and would definitely come back.
The washrooms were absolutely disgusting. For an upscale restaurant, washrooms should be checked for cleanliness and need a renovation.
I probably wouldn't come back because of the washrooms. Even though I have dined at Charcut many times and that was the first time using the washroom.
Went with a couple of colleagues and as usual was just blown away by delicious food and efficient service!
The All at since meal at Charcut is so on point - fast and tasty! This is why we come here almost every time for all our business meals!
Thank you for another wonderful meal. See you Tuesday! 😁
I have been to Charcut mostly for their lunch. It is high quality food at a very reasonable price and the staff is amazing. A few times the chef has gone around and introduced themselves for an added touch. I recommend Charcut as a nice relaxing place to sit down at lunch.
Was disappointed as not enough different main course dishes! Most of all booked ahead and it was my husband's b day and they didn't seem to care where they seated us! And no b day cake as I saw one delivered to a table but larger crowds count more as we both noticed! Anyhow are waiter was excellent with service & suggestions! Won't be going there again as we usually stay at least twice a year at Le Germaine!
Food was great, didn’t get a hello from the server. The only greeting we got was asking whether we wanted still or sparkling water... No food quality checks on any of our courses, drinks took >10 min in a non full section. Tad bit disappointing for the caliber of restaurant that it should be.
I came in on a Tuesday afternoon right after the lunch rush. We were seated in the corner by the large windows that overlook the street. I ordered the hot cocoa while I waited for my friend and her baby to arrive. The hot cocoa wasn't anything to write home about and I found it not worth the money but the service was absolutely amazing. We had a server who I didn't catch the name of who I thought was such an amazing personality. She had short, around chin length blonde hair. Super friendly, came at the right times, wasn't intrusive. She was just perfect! My friend and I had ordered the 16$ sandwich lunch that came with the soup, fries and cookies. Everything tasted really good, even cold as I ended up spending most of my time engrossed in the baby. Coming from someone who used to work in the industry, what really stood out was the service. She wasn't offended when my friend and I were deep into conversation, checked to make sure we were alright at just the perfect time intervals, our glasses were always filled with water, she even cooed at my friends baby as well. At the end, my friend had left her credit card and we were already a block down the street and the server came running to return the credit card. Whoever you are, thank you! Thank you for putting up with a baby and us, we had a great time and mostly in part to you. I hope management recognizes that because you are certainly great at what you do.
This was my first time in Charcut with the place having a good vibe . The couple I invited were retired with the lady having a birthday that day . I specified this on the reservation & spoke to
the person who called in to follow up the date & time . I had expected as I had ask for this small token of a candle at desert time . Nothing was done & I didn't bring this up because it was a minor request .
The restaurant for us was too noisy but the food & service was very good . Will go again but with a group of younger people . Thank you !
The food was excellent and we were glad that the waitress suggested eating family style. Left feeling full and happy. The server was quite pushy with trying the upsell menu items/dessert and the bill at the end was higher than we initially expected. Overall, would recommend for a special occasion - the prime rib was divine
Well first of all I guess the restaurant failed to confirm that I was there, because I received a nasty little note from Open Table that I was a no show, which was obviously incorrect. I had to go back and request that they correct this so that my reputation was not adversely affected.
As for the experience at the restaurant I can say that I would not recommend it. Service was so, so..... the menu items were rather strange to the point where my friend didn’t find any entre to even order. Limited wine list.
This restaurant has by far the worst wine list I’ve ever come across. I shouldn’t need to spend $100+ for a bottle of wine. And even then it was just average.
We looked through the menu and seriously struggled to select anything. The octopus and tuna small plates were good and the bison brisket however my fellow diners didn’t rate the food or choice... sorry.
Reviewers rated this high, which is why I chose it. But we won’t be back. So make up your own mind.. it’s a thumbs down from us.
we were there midweek. Not very busy. Our waitress was very good and made good suggestions but we felt she was distracted as she was always looking away while speaking to us. we had 3 starters, the oysters, tuna and octopus. Enjoyed each very much. it was the mains that brought the food down. Prime rib was average fish pieces were over cooked and Rotisserie chicken way too many fries. Ended with the salted caramel which was very good. What really got us was the bill. 3 people with wine and drinks over $150 a head. Not worth that price.
