Saltlik, A Rare Steakhouse - Calgary Ratings and Reviews
With all the other restaurants on 8 Avenue closing down the Salt Lik was around 70% full for this lunch and had a good vibe. Service and food are good but the prices are a bit high so value is my one area of concern.
It was nice to see a romaine lettuce salad as opposed to kale. Kale salads are all the rage and I prefer good old fashioned Caesar with romaine so that was a real bonus.
It was my husband’s birthday and we wanted celebrate with something especial!, we order at the restaurant a ribeye and Bbq ribs, the ribeye was a bad steak with more fat that meet! I understand that the ribeye is a piece of meet that has marbled fat between the meet, but this steak was beyond that!! The customers services girls said that our order was coming late if we wanted to had an appetizer but 2 min late she cancel our appetizer because the appetizer and the food will come out at the same time! When my husband was trying to eat the ribeye we told the waiter that the ribeyes was not good! The manager came and offered free dessert for the horrible meat and she didn’t remove from over bill! Terrible experience!!
It was a birthday celebration. The steak was delicious. Cooked to perfection. Potato was included but had to order veg separately. I don’t like that
Love the ambience in an old building looking out onto the mall and other old buildings. Nice and close to Vertigo theatre where we went afterwards
Overall the food was quite good and it was a nice atmosphere sitting by the fireplace. The service was fine - nothing made it great or not okay. The sirloin steaks were done just right (medium), and the sides of broccoli and mushrooms were both quite tasty. The peppercorn on the New York cut was a nice added touch of flavour.
We were greeted with a flute of Prosecco and shown quickly to our table. The server was around when we needed her and answered all of our questions with expertise. The food was delicious! The duck fat fries, lobster potatoes and steaks really were fantastic! Would definitely go back!
The food was delicious; however, the service is the reason I will never return!
Had 5 different people serving us, our water and wine took over 20 minutes (ordering and waiting), ordered an appetizer which was cooked and showed up to the table before a server even came to take our dinner order.
Parents visiting from out of town, took them to dinner here.
On a busy Friday night, service was friendly but music volume and overall noise level was high for anyone wearing hearing aids.
Portions are hearty, menu is solid comfort food classics with upscale twists - ahi tuna tartare had a tangy mexi-cali fusion flavour profile with cilantro and avocado. Some items were hard to eat (burger was good but too big to bite into without slicing it first) and desserts are big enough for 4. Apple pie is more like a tarte tatin, about the size of a CD, served in a crispy, flaky pastry crust with buttery flavour and visible layers, earthy spices, oats, praline and a generous scoop of quality vanilla ice cream.
Wine list is decent but not deep, showcasing some BC products.
Design of the interior leans towards semi-rustic, semi-modern, like a pricey mountain retreat. A fireplace crackles, there are many padded leather booths, 2-top and 4-top tables, all solid, no wobble (a pet peeve). The back area features a soaring ceiling with a sculptural chandelier, and the front is a bar with high tables and two flat-screen tvs tuned to sports.
Given the balance of portion size, flavour, ingredient quality and service, the price was eminently reasonable.
