Great atmosphere and service; not so great on the wallet

Went here with my girlfriend for a nice birthday dinner. Although expensive, the food was great. We came across this place after walking around exploring and there was a vodka sampling. How could we say no to that. The atmosphere is wonderful, with a beautiful fireplace in a central area. We went... read more

The restaurant has a very nice upstairs dining room with an excellent outdoor balcony of tables overlooking the street mountains. We made a dinner reservation through OpenTable.com for a table on the balcony. When we showed up, the hostess had no reservation for us and no knowledge of OpenTable. She indicated that they took reservations by phone, but "were not... More

My boyfriend and I went to Saltlik Steakhouse during a 2 day visit to Banff. They had a decent offer of the day for a flatbread starter and house wine which we took up. The flatbread was very nice. I had the hanger steak while my boyfriend had the ribeye steak. Both were very tender. The hanger steak was full... More

We happened across this restaurant, and I’m so glad we did. We chose to eat in the upstairs restaurant rather than the downstairs bar, which was a nice setting. I had what was probably the nicest starter I’ve ever had – the baja shrimp, and my husband enjoyed his duck tacos. For mains I went for the rotisserie chicken and... More

We went to Saltlik looking for a fancy meal as a couple and it went above and beyond our expectations. We went early, around 5:30, and it was not busy. The server was attentive and the food came quickly. I had the hanger steak and a Berry fresh cocktail. The steak was cooked perfectly to medium. I would definitely recommend... More

Went to Saltlik on a Wednesday evening and the place wasn't very crowded. We asked if we could sit in the outdoor area upstairs and were told that it was reserved. No big deal. The wait staff was inexperienced, confused and really not up to par for a restaurant of this calibur. The drinks came 20 minutes after ordering and... More

Good portions so I recommend sharing with others - we split a large steak and ordered several side dishes that had plenty for two to share. Quality and taste very good! will be back.

One of our family follows the rule--if you want a good restaurant, ask a server. While many steakhouses had been recommended in Banff, our server for breakfast said the best was definitely Saltlik. She was totally correct. The service was outstanding, The atmosphere upstairs is very pleasant & conducive to an enjoyable evening out. The duck tacos were unbelievable! Grilled... More

We went to this restaurant as part of a small wedding party. The decor and atmosphere are nice, and they had a small section reserved for us. We placed our orders over a month ahead of time, however they were out of almost everything when we got there- fish, mashed potatoes, etc. so we were extremely limited on choices. We... More
