I came Friday and there is still not a lot of people, the server was the worst, it was snowing heavily and I was wearing my snowboots and coat and I look disheveled from the weather, I came in and told them about my reservation. The server gave me
a cold stare and was VERY RUDE, they took my order and I ordered the butchers block which is sooooo salty, the caesar salad was overly acidic, i feel the chef or line cook did not even taste the dressing!! Hy's is way better and for the price of the food in this place i would say its not well worth it.

My mom took me out to dinner for my birthday here, was my first time. Every food item was delicious!! I had the French onion soup, the shrimp pasta and the sticky toffee pudding. That pasta is amazing!! I couldn’t eat enough!

We always enjoy Saltlik as a pre-Calgary Theatre or Jack Singer event. The food is always good, consistent, and the service is also always good.

The luncheon special during YYC restaurant week offered a Caesar Salad, a choice of a hamburger and a grilled chicken salad and sticky toffee pudding. Would a starter of Caesar Salad or soup be worth considering so the person ordering the grilled chicken salad wouldn't have two salads (unless, of course, the person loves salads).

Brought wrong wine, basically sat us and then ignored us.
We left after our appetizer, corked our wine and left.
Disappointed. Then when we asked for bill, they didn’t ask why? Weird.

Our server was great
The food was great
The restaurant was closing early for a function
We felt rushed and were also unable to order something as simple as another Diet Coke
After ordering a baked potato I was served French fries as they were closing the kitchen and no potatoes available
Very poor experience considering the cost of the food.
If your going to accept a 7:30 reservation, don’t ruin the evening for your guests

We have been coming to Saltlik for years! It was actually the last meal we had before having our baby! With that being said, we were sad to see the restaurant doesn’t offer high chairs or a diaper changing station in the bathroom. It won’t stop us from coming, but hope we can still bring our little guy! Service is always amazing and fast!

Service was amazing from the minute we entered. One of the first questions was whether there were any allergies (my partner has a dairy allergy) and the server immediately checked with the kitchen to see what mods could be made.

Tuna Tartare appetizer was incredible. Our steaks were melt in your mouth. Definitely order the ribeye when it is available as the marbling and quality is top notch.

Wine pairing suggestions made the meal even better. Would definitely go again

The food, service and drinks were excellent. Had the striploin with mash, short ribs, and the cheese bread. Everything came out hot and prepared as expected. Our waitress for the night was also the best of the entire trip in Calgary.

Well I can only speak for myself as I had the Michelangelo pasta and believe it or not, it was too big a portion. But because it was so good, I had to keep eating. Not a habit I want to maintain.
