It had been a long time since we dined at Saltlik & we enjoyed our meals last night. The only downside was a mistake on my filet (they added butter, when the server noted not to) & the re-fire was medium rare, not the medium I requested. I didn't want to sent it back again, so I ate it. The cauliflower & broccoli sides were delicious, definitely a redo.

While the food was amazing I can't say the same about service. Not sure if our server was new or not but we waited a very long time to receive our meals (1.5hrs approx). Only once did he check on us, to confirm how the tomahawk was to be cooked. Safe to say he put through the original order with the wrong cooking request and so we waited even longer! Then wait over 40mins to pay for a bill that was sitting on our table.

Food was great, our server was great but others were off. A server that wasn’t ours was rude when asked where bathroom was (eye roll, sigh, “down the stairs over there i’m sure you can find it”). maybe it was just an off night for them due to hectic new restrictions but i did expect a little better for staff attitude, seemed to be unimpressed even at her tables. Thankful that ours was lovely. very happy with the food and ambiance & our server. the squash appetizer was AMAZING. Shannah was very very sweet, i hope to be served by her again. Host was also very welcoming upon arrival

We unfortunately were sat beside some ladies who were quite a bit louder than we hoped. There didn’t seem to be other seats available so we understood there wasn’t much that could be done.
The food was incredible and our server was very friendly, there were just a few things (not bringing our bottle of wine until 5-10 min after our food arrived when we asked for it prior). Again we 100% understand times are a bit different and difficult to navigate so we will definitely still be back for the great food! Thank you

I never write these but I'm a celiac, mentioned it a few times to the waitress and was pretty much immediately sick after lunch - likely from something in the potatoes. Shouldn't happen at a restaurant that charges what this place does.

We came here to celebrate the engagement of my firstborn son. I wrote Celebration in my online reservation. We were a party of 5 and to our surprise! Champagne! for each one of us!!! How generous! The staff was very welcoming. Everyone of the staff- the reception guy, the lady who took our orders, the server ladies, guys_ they were so very nice, warm and sincerely engaging. I felt at ease and started liking the place.

The food and drinks were superb! I loved the Saltlik spritz! with grapefruity taste, it complemented the Grilled salmon I had. Plated on a bed of lobster ravioli, roasted asparagus, grape tomatoes and a generous serving of true buerre blanc (buttery-sauce), salmon was so tasty and just-about-right tender. Actually, on its own, the grilled salmon would still stood out.

My son and his fiance were steak-lovers, got the AAA ribeye (medium) and petite filet mignon (medium rare). My hubby got the filet mignon, as well. These steaks were outstanding! If a "clean plate" was not a complement, I don't know what is? My youngest, feeling a little adventurous, got cacio e pepe and gnocchi. Turned out, gnocchi was not a little adventurous as we got all our forks dipping into his order.

Their apple pie and chocolate lava cake were yummy. The reviews were on-point correct! I'm glad I read the reviews.

We had calamari and crostone for starters. They were so tasty as well. If we're not gunning for steaks that evening, we would have more of these two. Just-about-right tender.

We were glad we chose Saltlik for our dinner place. Saltlik staff and food made our celebration more meaningful and enjoyable. Definitely, we'll be back, celebration or not. Cheers!
