Portions for side dishes were quite small. Steaks were cooked really well as ordered. Music stopped for about 10minutes with no explanation why.

One meal had to be sent back twice due to it being incorrect and another had half of it forgotten. The manager did come out to assist and the waitress was excellent. I would suggest when someone orders steaks well done that the steak is indeed well done.

We had a very good evening with family. The restaurant was very slow as expected at this time.
The menu had a nice selection and we had a couple of starters and our group all selected steaks for the main course. The pan fried Calamari was delicious.

The steaks were cooked to perfection, the side dishes were very good but were only warm , not hot.
The service was good , timely and there when we needed something.

Overall the Saltlik delivered as expected and I would recommend this location and I would return.

For a fine dining steakhouse, it was rather disappointing. Both ribeyes ordered were extra fatty and 40% of the steak was fat. Nice gesture to offer proseccos when you walk in however they forgot to serve one of our guests.

Saltlik is always a good place to go out when you want to have a great meal! No complaints, every time we go to eat, the quality stays the same and the taste always so flavourful. Absolutely everyone needs to try the wagyu carpaccio, the way all the ingredients flow together, it's just a burst of flavours flowing through your mouth.

We, a family of four, celebrated my wife's birthday recently at Saltlik Calgary. Food was excellent and atmosphere was relaxing. Overall, we left satisfied with our meal.

Only minor disappointments were they no longer offer the daily specials as advertised on the menu at Open Table( thus the menu should be updated to reflect the actual menu you will see upon arrival.) Second complaint would be that they did not offer us a complimentary birthday desert despite the hostess confirming that we were in fact there to celebrate. For what we spent I don't think a piece of cake would have put them out anything.

Worth every dollar! This is the best steakhouse in Calgary! Four of us ordered the same steak meal but each asked to have it cooked different. We all got exactly what we ordered. Ambience was classy, and classic without being another dark steakhouse atmosphere. Presentation of food was great. But the best part - Service was just as fantastic as the food! The hostess, the manager, the waiter, the sommelier...each one was respectful, polite, and made us feel welcome. All covid rules were followed so that we felt safe and comfortable. For aides, we tried the creamed corn with bacon and the asparagus with truffle hollandaise. Sauce was very “truffley” so some liked it and some didn’t. We had the sauce on the side so it worked out perfectly. Next time we would get two of each! Yum! I would happily pay this price again for top notch service and food.
