Excellent service and food - a bit expensive for the portions of food, though.
$7 for a bottle of water? Could be better...

Our server Jill was incredible, she really saved the experience with her excellent service. The food was so disappointing. We had issues with both appetizers and our mains. Our appetizers were really badly portioned and excessive in some coleslaw garnish. My salmon was the worst, completely dry and flavourless. Same with my friends’ gnocchi, and his steak was overcooked. Oh man... maybe the kitchen was having the worst day of its life.
I’ll pay good money for even a small portion of something done with excellence. This wasn’t that. It just wasn’t good. Save your money and go to Earls or Cactus club or something- Saltlik was like a higher priced, but lamer version of that. I won’t be back.

We go here semi- regularly because we have always had a very nice evening. But this time was much different. We made a reservation 3 days prior and then got sat in the basement at a bar table. When you want a romantic evening at a high end restaurant, sitting at a bar table isn't ideal. After being served our drinks, they tasted nothing like they had in the past and we made poorly. Once our food arrived, I ordered the hunters chicken (one of my all time favorites) it was also very different and you could tell they are cutting corners/costs, also it did not come with the red wine jus but was just sitting in mushroom water. My fiance's steak was cooked 2 stages under what was ordered and and blood pooled on the plate.
We love this place and have loved their food. We have even recommended it to other people. I feel their was just no love put into the food or drinks. The service was great and they were very understanding and polite about the whole situation.

This was a unique experience given that the new restrictions make dining a bit uncomfortable. There was one person taking our order. They brought a water glass and then another person took dirty dishes away. if you required more water, they brought a new glass. The masks are way over rated and take away from the dining experience. Hoping this changes soon! The wine list is very mediocre and should be reconsidered. We love Saltlik but hoping things get back to normal very soon!

Overall this was good but not as good as expected mainly due to the food and steak in particular. I had the NY strip (medium rare) and I would recommend Buchanan's or even the Keg over Saltlik for steak quality and flavour. The service was excellent and my salad, my baked potato, and my wife's salmon were excellent but a steakhouse should have good steak above all else and that's why I likely won't be back.

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.

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).
