My second time in Calgary was nothing short of perfection. Last year I dined here for my birthday and when the thought of what to do rolled around this year, flying to Calgary seemed both extra, and hilarious. But it stuck. Saltlik, you outdid yourself....I’ve been thinking of the Beeswax Old Fashioned for 366 days and it just hits the spot. Victoria B.C. hasn’t latched onto it yet but it’ll come. Dinner was exceptional but the real star or the show was Trevor. Exceptional service is becoming an almost lost art and this guy has it. His energetic read on the table and tailored charisma is what 90s career servers were made of. The kind of server who questions himself “how do I elevate this experience?!” And then executes. His tag team with Chris to make this birthday nothing short of Calgary perfection is exactly why we ended up here. Thank you for making us feel special, our dinner incredible and leaving us with yet another Saltlik memory for the books. Thanks over many thanks. We will see you again!More

Good premium steak, but there are better. What sets this place apart is a wine based steak sauce you can purchase for the steak. It is amazing and does not overpower the steak. Normally I don’t want any sauce on a good steak. Definitely opt...for the wine sauce if you get the steak.More

Came here on a cold Tuesday evening andvtje place was very busy I think it's because the Flames were playing. The decor and ambience is good, the service was fair and the food was good and not bad value. My only issue they forget to...bring my coffee and when they did it was cold but that's not worth moaning about. Left happy being well fed and watered, will return and recommend.More

Plethora of choices of places to eat but after looking at various places/menus decided on this place. How lucky that turned out to be. The food obviously was great-all dishes were lovely but steak was exceptional. Bur better than that was the service- special mention...to Rae(?sp) and the duty manager Drew. He came and talked to us and made the whole meal feel really special- even with the discussion afterwards about his street art and spelling on the board. Top bloke and top place.

Amazing!!! Front the moment, we were greeted on the sidewalk by a lady serving taste tests of steak n mash, to the moment we stepped inside, the service was wonderful Now for food, this couldn't get any better. The steak was cooked perfectly, and the...sides were great. As I couldn't decide on a wine, the manager Chris came to my aide and helped with choosing me a perfect wine.

Depends of day and time really - we go quite often and can vary from casual (jeans / smart casual) to a more formal business attire - definitely no shorts.
