I was with my GF treating my son and a friend of his on our last evening in Calgary before coming back home to Montreal. I started by ordering the full board of charcuterie assortment. My GF who is Italian made me notice that the mortadella didn't look like it and she was right, what they advertise as Mortadella is at best on overly salty ham. There was also another cut of meat which none of us could identify that had the same texture as leather, inedible. Then my GF had ordered the charred octopus. They might as well have replaced it by a rubber octopus, because that was the texture. I guess they forgot to tenderize it by boiling it at first. I ordered the sausage burger with the poutine. Not only was the sausage very chewy, they had melted more than 1 inch of cheese on top of it which just made the matters worst. The poutine had no taste of truffle and the cheese that was melted in the poutine was anything but cheese curds. Cheese curds don't stretch for more than 4 feet when trying to get a bite. My son enjoyed the bison and I don't remember what his friend ordered, but I noticed that she left more than half the plate untouched. Their wine list is decent but way overpriced (3 times cost). All of that for $450.00 for 4 people. We should have gone across the street to Ruth Chris. I wouldn't recommend Charcut to anyone. It was a very bad experience.
