Very nice location, and a nice interior. That is the positive. I was seated in a restaurant that had only a few customers, and lots of staff. One would think that is a good sign. My order was onion soup to start to be followed...by a prime rib steak, medium rare. The waiter took the order, and about 15 minutes later returned with my main course. No soup had been served. At first the feedback was that he ‘missed that’. I requested the soup to be brought and the steak returned to the kitchen for another use. The waiter took the steak, and retuned in a few minutes to say the soup would be out shortly. Then he added that he thought the soup was brought out before he brought the steak. If he was paying attention rather than watching tv in the bar side with the other waiter and bartender he may have noticed it was not. Or not changed his story.. The onion soup arrived and it did taste good. The steak was delivered and was well past the medium-rare stage, and moving toward well done. I suspect it had been kept for 25 minutes under a heat lamp. I sent it back. At the price for the steak it better be right. However, the manager who came by to take the overdone steak back was going to leave the fries on the table. I suggested that she take them and then bring fresh ones when the new steak was brought to make up a meal that is served at the same time. Before the new steak was prepared yet another manager came by the table to see how thing s were. At least he confirmed the first steak was indeed overdone. When the new steak was brought it was done as requested. In the end a big disappointment overall. Clearly lots of staff and few customers does not equate to good service or high quality food. After all these months of covid lockdowns spend your money elsewhere, where you can get good service and great food.More

We absolutely enjoyed our meal here while we stayed in Calgary for our 15th anniversary. The service was awesome and the food was delicious. I had the salmon with lobster ravioli, one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. My husband had the ribeye with...shrimp and lobster mashed potato, every bite of was amazing!!!More

The food and service was fantastic! The staff was knowledgeable about their menu and wine, they were very attentive- we had multiple people check on us to see if we were happy with everything. The restaurant was very clean, they remember to clean the table...and the seating! We had someone come to us almost immediately for a drink order, they never let our glasses stay empty! The appetizers came out unbelievably quickly, and they were absolutely delicious. We ordered Wagyu Beef Carpaccio and the Wok Fried Calamari, both were very tasty, extra big rave for the calamari though! Our steak dinners were cooked beautifully, the lobster mashed potatoes and maple mustard Brussel sprouts were to die for. Such a great evening, I will highly recommend to anyone visiting Calgary. Thank you guys so much!More

I had the hanger steak, the flavour was good, the beaf was tough, but at least I was provided an actual sharp steak knife to use. My wife’s rib steak was basically shoe leather; it was 30% fat and gristle and 70% bubble gum. It...was tough and difficult to cut with the knife she was provided; I cut her steak for her. My sons steaks were a little better, but tough nonetheless. The upside is that the flavours and the sides were good.. not great, but good. This restaurant needs a serious review of the quality of beaf being used.. our meals did not meet our expectations.More

So glad my husband and I had the chance to eat here while passing through Calgary. Such a great place; the ambiance, service and food are all awesome! Definitely try to make it in time for the Happy Hour specials to start; we shared the...Wagyu beef carpaccio. I enjoyed the Saltlik Spritz with my meal and the choice of sides with our steak entrees was terrific!More

My friends and I stumbled upon this place while looking for a place to eat by our hotel. We were there this past Sunday night, 9/12/21, and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. The restaurant had just the right ambience and noise level so we...felt like we could easily hear each other while not being overheard by other tables. The food was absolutely delicious, as were the drinks. Standouts for me were the pan seared mushrooms, warm apple pie, and the Vanity Fair cocktail. The filet mignon was quite tasty and the food my friends had looked equally delicious. What truly elevated our experience was our waiter, Moe. While interacting with him we discovered that he had only been working there for a little over a week which was hard to believe because he seemed like he had been working there for ages. He was knowledgeable of the menu but also was able to pick up on the vibe of our group and played along with our silliness. It felt like he was part of our friend group even though he wasn't sitting with us. We wanted to make sure someone there knew how fabulous he was so we asked to speak with a manager. When Cameron came over it was clear that she was an excellent manager and set the tone for her staff. She too melded right in with our vibe as we were singing Moe's praises. If I am ever fortunate enough to be back in Calgary I know where I will be eating dinner!More

Hi Tamara, I replied to your Yelp review. Thank you again for sharing.

First dinner in Calgary and this restaurant didn’t disappoint! Food was good and waitres was super attentive! Might be a bit loud if you are looking for a restaurant with more ambiance. The tomahawk steak was tender and flavourful. This came with 4 side dishes....Perfect to share. Among the sides my favourite were the maple brussel sprouts and roasted tumeric cauliflowers. I wouldn’t reccomend the asparagus in truffle cream sauce though. The wagyu carpaccio was pretty good too.More

I always make a point of visiting Saltlik every time I am in calgary. I love the Bernaise sauce they have with their filet! I did find the service a little slow the night I was there, but I wasn’t in any rush.

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.
