First time dining here was really good! The food was delicious, the drinks were lovely, and the service was great. The only complain I'd have is that my father wanted a different side of veggies, because he doesnt like Brussel sprouts and asked if he could get the roasted carrots. Our server said they didn't have roasted carrots, yet it was on a couple other dishes on the menu. I don't understand why it wasn't aloud to happen so it kodn of ruined the mood. When paying prices like that I think it's a bit silly. The last this is that we had to ask for steak knives for our steak, that was a bit silly I think the front of house should know to give proper utensils for the meal as we shouldnt have to ask for it.

Overall our dinner was good though just some small complaints.

Our reservation was for 5:45pm on Saturday night. We were seated by about 5:55pm. Placed our drink orders, over 15 minutes to get drinks to the table. Server was asked about the mustard Brussel sprouts that came with the meals and if we could change them out, he said no, but could buy another side dish.
Ordered 1 appetizer and 4 meals as one couple was sharing the bone in Rib Eye steak. Well over 70 minutes and the appetizer still hadn't arrived, then the server told us our food was up next. Meals and appetizer came all together, great we were all hungry and had an 8:00pm event to attend. Everyone cuts into their steaks and almost at the same time we look up and asked each other... "is your steak cold?" Correct all 4 steaks were cold to luke warm at best. Still took the Manager about 10 minutes to swing by our table after I brought it to another servers attention. The interesting part is he said I understand you have an event to attend and you don't have time for us to remake the steaks for you... If you want we can look after your meals for you?? Really ?? Shouldn't have even been a question... They still charged us for the appetizer that arrived with our meals and not before. BIG disappointment for a high end steak house.

Service was slow. Problem with dessert was not mentioned for at least 15 min and had to change our selection. Would have enjoyed a decaf coffee but was told they don’t make it. No effort to accommodate the long wait for dessert. Restaurant was cold at our table.

We each had the sirloin steaks which we both ordered medium rare.
My girlfriend's was close but mine was closer to medium well, they apologized and took it back no problem.
They brought us 2 complimentary non alcoholic drinks which was nice and then took 20% off the bill, service was excellent.

We went for dinner at Saltlik and it was delicious. I had the Filet Mignon, it was so tender and perfectly seasoned. The creamy mashed potatoes were amazing. The Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir was a great bottle of wine. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere lively as it was before a Flames game. I would definitely recommend having dinner here.

Ordered the Tomahawk Steak 40oz - turned out to be the kind of cut you would expect at a non steakhouse. Calamari for appetizer was terrible. Used to be a signature.

This was an annual occasion for us - been doing it for the last 6 years. Maybe we just caught them on an off night.

I am giving a fair review based more so on the good food and ambiance but our group felt rushed to leave because there was supposed to be another reservation at that time, even though there were large tables available when we left, and nobody was waiting to come in .. too bad, we would have ordered desert and more drinks but forced to go elsewhere. Also, covid passport rules were only followed partially; 2 people from our group left the table to go outside (twice, about 15 minutes each time), and both times there was nobody to greet them on re-entry, so they walked right in through the restaurant and back to our table without being stopped so it's not fully watched here .. too bad, if they are not diligent with this then I have to wonder about other things like proper cleanliness.
