    Wonderful dinner! The staff went above and beyond to make it a memorable evening for my friend and I, who hadn’t seen each other in 6+ months. Whenever I’m in town, we always go to Saltlik and this experience did not disappoint! We’ll be back again the next time I come to town, that’s a promise!

    Saltlik used to be a "go to" for us. Sadly, over the past couple of years it has slowly changed to just an average restaurant. The menu has changed, dropping some of our favorites, and the prices are a bit high for what you get. A $40 steak sandwich should not fit in the palm of your hand, nor should it be served on a slice of what looks like Wonderbread. And at that price attention should be paid as to how it was ordered, not overcooked (with was mentioned to staff). We brought guests from out of town, and the consensus at the end of the meal from our visitors was "it was okay I guess, but nothing special". Staff was friendly and attentive, but not sure it's enough to bring us back to what used to be our favorite spot.

    Our service with justin today was beyond we expected we appreciate the warm welcome as they knew we were flying in from Vancouver to experience the best steak house in Calgary. We ordered a wonderful bottle of cab sauv, Hunter chicken, filet mignon Chicago style media rare, and calamari, and the amazing sides just complemented everything so well I highly recommend 100/100

    My medium rare filet was pretty rare, so not well cooked for a steak house. Portion sizes were ok, but a bit small for the price. I wanted a glass of wine with my dinner, but no one asked, so I didn't bother. It was ok, not an amazing night for the price tag.

    We made a reservation online and arrived a little early expecting to wait. The incredible staff got us seated right away. They were all so friendly. The food was phenomenal and the building was clean and moden. I was very impressed with the ladies room too (haha). It had everything you could possible need.

    Waiter was polite and helpful. Always there when we needed him. Pork chop was super tasty but very oily - for some reason SALTLIK always uses a lot of butter, too much We ordered New York steak median and it came almost rare. We had guest from out of town who did not say anything about it so I didn’t even know until their last piece when they offered me to try it. They were too nice to say anything Salmon was a bit too fishy for my taste but the ladies liked it so no complaints The carpaccio was to die for - would come back just for that again

    Our server Sydney was upbeat and delightful and Logan who initially seated us came by to ask our thoughts on the shrimp tempura, which we had ordered as a starter. Apparently, it was just added to the menu and wanted honest feedback of which we gave it 10/10! The client I hosted always requests Saltlik and today just once again reinforced why we continue to choose it! Drinks were delicious, as was the filet and the chicken salad we ordered.

    The food was great, but my waiter is very rude and careless. He was very impatient and showed the attitude. The restaurant was pretty empty during my visit and I had to wait for a while before I could find him and asked for more water. As a high ranking restaurant like this I was not impressed with the quality of services they provided. That was just about the waiter who served us and the rest of the crew were pretty nice, friendly and professional.

    My mother, brother and I dined last night at Saltlik for the YYZ Exp experience and it was a great value! For only $45 per person, you get a four-course delicious meal. They are very generous portions too. Being from Toronto, this is unheard of! This four-course meal included a 6oz NY striploin steak and the martinis were a reasonable price too. The peppercorn sauce to go atop of the steak was yummy too! I would recommend it to Calgarians as well as visitors. Also, street parking is free in Calgary everywhere after 6pm!

    We had dinner at Saltlik and it was delicious. The tomato soup was very tasty and the salad was good. For the entree we had a 6oz New York strip loin, mashed potatoes & maple mustard brussel sprouts. The steak was so tender and seasoned perfectly. The potatoes were creamy & the brussel sprouts were so good, roasted and caramelized. Dessert was sticky toffee pudding with ice cream, a perfect finish. Our waiter was great, friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

    The french onion soup to start was amazing and the star of my meal. Very delicious. My steak was slightly overcooked and underseasoned. The lobster tail was overpriced for what you get, and did not come with drawn butter, which resulted in bland lobster
