    Worst steak I ever had. It was literally worse than a Denny’s special. I fed a 90 dollar rib eye to my dog when I got home. I couldn’t even cut into a piece that wasn’t tough and full of grizzle. A rib eye is suppose to have nice fatty rippling, this was absolutely full of fat, a steak knife couldn’t even cut into it. They should have never plated that.

    I would have gone 5 stars across the board but we were seated in a corner by a door with a wonderful view of a pile of propane tanks and felt squeezed in instead of part of this beautiful restaurant. I had asked for a nice seat because my wife and I dont get to go out much but hopefully we never get that table again as it cast a negative feeling over our experience from the beginning.

    Food is great. Ambience is lovely. The service is not great. Our server wasn’t just inattentive but flat out rude. There was a fly in our drink and one of our orders was missed, we were treated like a massive inconvenience. Ultimately we asked for a new one and the second server was great but poor experience, it was so uncomfortable Unfortunately won’t be back

    We went for appetizers prior to a show at Arts Common. The calamari was very good. The French onion soup was terrible with no flavour and the grilled chicken salad did not have grilled chicken. It had shaved deli chicken and very little of it. A disappointing experience.

    Nice place, good service. Our only complaint was to do with the somewhat over-flavoured food. For us, the steak was appropriately seasoned, the Brussels sprouts were very highly flavoured and seasoned (and charred, and sauced … but then again, anything to disguise the taste of Brussels sprouts) but the side of mushrooms, described on the menu as “mushrooms” were really spicy. Why? It was a different spice combination than in the steak so they didn’t really work, and if you’re going to spice up mushrooms that much, a mention in the menu would be nice. I found them inedible.

    Another rave review for Saltlik from me!! It has become our go-to place for special occasions. We’ve now gone 3 times and each time we have had amazing food, incredible service and were made to feel so special. I reserved for my birthday, using OpenTable. I detailed my dietary restrictions/allergies and what I would be ordering in order to make it easy to accommodate. I mentioned it was my birthday celebration and I requested the same table we’ve sat at before (I’m in a power wheelchair and this table is perfect for not being in the way.). They thanked me for putting my dietary needs on the reservation. They were able to talk to chef ahead of time and organize it all. They treated us to some champagne, for my birthday, which was a delightful surprise! We also ordered a Caesar (hubby)and an espresso martini (me). Both were delicious! They made me a special calamari to accomodate my allergies, as well as a filet mignon dinner to accomodate them. So tasty!! I will dream about the calamari. The filet mignon was like butter. Amazing! My husband had the butter biscuits and the new York steak with extra mushrooms. He loved it. Closed his eyes in joy with the first bite of steak. It was cute! Haha. For dessert we shared the sticky toffee pudding OMG so good! And they put a birthday candle for me which was a nice touch! We ended with cappuccinos. Several staff came to wish me a happy birthday throughout the night. It was perfect. So I had to write another review. I almost chose a new place for dinner but I’m so glad I stuck with Saltlik. They always make it feel like a real treat, a special occasion, a memory maker. Our waiters name was Jared. Thank you Jared and thank you to the chefs and lovely hostess and everyone for a great evening!

Also appreciate the speed of the food & drink service, we had an outing to get to afterwards and our food and drinks arrived with plenty of time to enjoy. Highly recommend!

    A very NICE steakhouse in a heritage building in downtown Calgary. We were all there for lunch. I ordered a chicken salad....not much greens in it :) We were a group of people just hanging out. The restaurant is very spacious and it is great for large parties! I was at Saltik a few times before for happy hours. The Wagyu beef is AWESOME. I live nearby, so definity will be back many more times!!!

    My nephew raved about the Wagyu carpaccio. My french onion soup was delish. Our steaks were cooked perfectly the accompanying potatoes and brussel sprouts were so tasty! Disappointed they didnt have the butter cake for dessert as I was looking forward to it. Pricey though it seems to be all over now...reserve eating out for special occasions only these days.

    Great service! We enjoyed the menu but would have preferred to ordered the rib-eye steak but the portion seemed really big. We opted for the sirloin knowing it would be a bit tougher. It was cooked perfectly and very tasty. The calamari was amazing as was the apple pie.

    The rib-eye steak I ordered was excellent! We both enjoyed the complementary champagne (my wife and I were celebrating our 49th anniversary.) Very good service. A little noisier than we'd like. Parking was a challenge. Overall, it was a lovely dinner we both enjoyed.

    Our server was awesome (I think Matt?) And the food was great. We had the Wagyu carpaccio to start. The crispy capers add an extra texture that just works! Then on to the scallops and gnocchi. The gnocchi was super good. Different to any others we've had. Then the New York strip. The brussel sprouts are so good! And excellent apple pie to finish. Great meal out for a long overdue date night
