Diner Reviews
  • "Saltlik was very disappointing. Service was terrible, we were never offered to hang our heavy winter jackets and it took 15 minutes to have someone greet us and bring water to our table when the dinning room was only 75% full. Our food was very subpar for the price. The vegetables were overcooked to mush, and the steaks were overcooked. They were supposed to be medium rare; however, when they arrived they were cooked to medium, no longer pink and juicy on the inside. After our bill was brought to the table we sat there for over 30 minutes before our server came to take our payment."

  • "My husband and I are honeymooning in banff and this meal likely stole the show! We shared a porterhouse that was cooked to perfection! We had maple Brussel sprouts that were unbelievable!!! The dessert was also outstanding! Overall this Resturant will be making us return to banff! It's a must have while you are here!"

  • "The steak here is the highlight, but for the prices, professional servers would really help. Ours took 3 of 4 appetizer orders and then walked away. He brought one soup then took the 4th person's starter. He was very cheerful, as if from the set of Glee, but said things like "don't you worry about getting wine ordered - your steak isn't ready." I guess he'd not heard of wine breathing for a few minutes or having some with a starter. The service doesn't do the food justice. Two steaks were perfectly medium rare and flavourful and both the mushrooms and asparagus sides are wonderful shared. The ahi tuna was great albeit with a tad strong vinaigrette. The sister restaurant in Calgary has good food too and superior overall."

  • "I had eaten at Saltlik previously and it was delicious as always. My husband and I made the trip from Calgary to Banff just for this restaurant and it didn't disappoint at all. The food is amazing; tender, flavourful steaks, delicious sides and our favourite beyond favourite food item in the whole world... the duck tacos. The one change was that this time we decided to eat in the upstairs, near the kitchen. The kitchen was loud, the chefs were shouting to each other an asking servers to push certain items, at one time there was even a wee bit of swearing. It could be distracting but overall I would still recommend Saltlik, just request a table away from the noise. :)"

  • "The food was absolutely delicious! From the salad through the steak and dessert all of the food we had was really good. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. The restaurant was very nicely decorated and the atmosphere was perfect for a nice evening out. Ithe noise level was not too hig h so you could actually have a conversation with the other person at the table. The prices were reasonable for a high end restaurant. All in all I would recommend Saltlik as a great place to eat."

  • "What a find on our last night in Banff. My chicken and hubby's steak (which he got with rosemary butter, yum!) were sooooo tasty. And our sides of mac and cheese, and scalloped potatoes (i know, carb city) were akldsdjfkasljfkfdj (that's me drooling still!). I even managed to find a bit of room for the amazing carrot cake - best ever! Server was cute, sweet and appropriately attentive. Other staff were very friendly. Even the 80s music was awesome, man! Reading this it sounds kinda down-homey, but it was upscale and trendy, Really. Definitely will go again when in town."

  • "We were looking for a really good restaurant to go to on our day's visit to Banff. Saltlik came highly recommended, so it was the restaurant that we choose. The service was very good, as were his recommendations of sides. We decided to share the 17oz. steak and then order sides and a salad. The macaroni and cheese was outstanding, I would return there just for that. The house salad (beet, orange and goat cheese was also very good. However, the steak was disappointing. Being that Saltlik's claim to fame is their steaks, this one definitely fell short. It was full of grizzle that made it difficult to eat, and made for a lot of waste. I would recommend this restaurant, but would say to make sure you choose your cut of meat wisely."

  • "As self-confessed meatatarians, we've been wanting to eat here for a while now. Love the idea of a la carte steak and everything was very tasty but the lobster mash was to die for!!! This might be our new favourite place in Banff. Definitely worth another visit to check out the bar downstairs and then again for the outdoor patio...looks like we'll be back a few times."

  • "Excellent bone-in ribeye with rosemary butter. I don't usually appreciate the extra fat, but this was very, very good. Note that everything is a la carte, so the side dishes are large enough for 2-3 people. We sat inside on a somewhat cool evening, but the outdoor porch seating looked inviting. The traffic below on Bear Street is much less than on Banff Avenue. My biggest complaint was the lack of high quality wine choices to go with the excellent food. Somehow they ran out of their best cab by the glass, and the bottle choices are heavily weighted to BC wines across the board. Now, I'm not a BC wine expert, but there are certainly many other great regions out there."
