We were there to celebrate a University Graduation. They asked us when we got there if we were celebrating anything special but not sure why they asked as did not do or offer anything.

The food was good except with our cheese buns the cheese was not melted. Everyone enjoyed their meals and we had a nice dinner. Enjoyed being able to chat without having to yell.

The only thing we thought was the appie menu and drink selection is quite sparse.

We had an amazing dinner. Our server was awesome. Food was great as were the drinks. The only downside was the busker playing depressing songs in a semi operatic, semi cooked manner. We would have stayed for dessert if it wasn't for her. Her violin playing counterpart was good ... But we would have tipped her to leave.

I took a group of 7 here for a business dinner during Stampede. Great service and great food! My husband and I shared a tomahawk steak, and it was the best steak we’ve ever had… cooked to perfection.

Highly recommend!!

I've been to Saltlik in the past and it was fantastic. The servers and hostess' were still great so I don't want my review to affect their great work.
I was disappointed with my steak though. It wasn't the high quality that I expect from a top quality steakhouse. I ordered the tenderloin which is usually easy to chew and cut. This was not the case last night. So definitely overpriced for the quality.

Attended during Stampede 2021 (post covid) and service started very slow, for the restaurant not being full, but we spoke to a manager and service improved significantly after that, she was a great waitress. We all loved the whiskey sours, the tuna tartare and the calamari. I felt the quality of the steak could have been higher. Everyone loved the lobster mashed potatoes and the kobe fat fries were very good. Overall a great night.

Service was fantastic, on all fronts. Everyone enjoyed their food. I didn't. I ordered the Salmon, it was way over cooked. I am allergic to lobster and it came with lobster ravioli, I told them that so I wouldn't get any. I didn't, but they didn't substitute it either. I told them I wasn't thrilled with the salmon (super hard, super dry), nothing happened, I just left my plate basically untouched but ate my mashed potatoes and my asparagus.
Don't order salmon. Everything else is fantastic. Apple pie dessert is to die for.

Came here for boyfriends birthday dinner. Restaurant was empty so we got seated at a nice quiet and cozy booth. Had three different waiters checking up on us throughout the night to make sure we were okay. Food was great, got the filet mignon and salmon lobster ravioli. Def recommend the steak over the other entrees, so flavourful.

We expected something special since it was a birthday dinner, but was a bit disappointed there was nothing prepared. Overall, still a very nice experience.

Came in for my friends birthday on Monday evening as he wanted a steak! Boy was he not disappointed!!!!!!!!
The fillet was phenomenal, this steakhouse has the BEST steaks in all of calgary!!
The service was extremely attentive and knowledgeable, and we found that absolutely everyone who worked there was willing to answer a question and take our orders.

I ordered the fillet with a side wedge salad and mashed potatoes, I definitely was not disappointed! We also had calamari to start, and it’s probably the best calamari that I’ve ever had!
The price is justified by the incredible food, and overall service.
Highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a great evening out.

10/10, will be back!!!!!!!

NY steak tasted like a frozen grocery store steak. Filet came out super rare. Waitress offered to re cook the rare steak . NY was probably one of the worst pieces of meat I have ever had , made it through a third of it. We decided to try salt like since our go to (Modern steak) was closed. Needless to say we will never be back

Wok-Fired Calamari was delicious appetizer. Had the Red Wine Marinated Hanger Steak, it too was excellent. The Lobster ravioli that comes as a side with the Grilled Salmon should be a dish on its own. Everything was great, really enjoyed our meal.

The appetizers were great, but our waitress never came to take our dinner order. We were there 1.5 hours and by the time she came around we had to leave (pick up kids, also it was about to rain). Only 4 tables so wasn't too busy. I'm sure the food is good, would have been nice to try it! We settled for A&W on the way home.
