The steak was of good quality, though a fillet should not come with a big tender running throug it. Creme brulee was undercoocked...

Went here for birthday dinner and found it to be a great experience. Steaks were delicious and the sides recommended by our great server were Delicious! The atmosphere was cozy and warm. Prices are on higher side but definitely worth it

We have been here on the last two trips to Banff, have truly enjoyed the food both times. The steaks are outstanding and cooked as ordered. A little on the expensive side, but it's a great place for a nice night out for a special occasion.

We went to Banff for thanksgiving, we have eaten here before and the food was and still is great the scallop potatoes are the best and an order of them is enough for 2-3 people. The lobster potato were also good. My favorite was the California cut New York with blue cheese.

We had a party of five and our food was absolutely wonderful!! The server was excellent as well!! We all had different dishes but we ordered a side of scalloped potatoes and the mac and cheeze!! We all shared the sides and it was well worth coming just for the potatoes!! They are a must have!!

We decided to try here for a second time after leaving before even getting service the first time over a year ago. The experience was so poor and disapointing we will never return. The service is terrible and the foods well over cooked.

Our dinner at Saltlik was the best meal we had during our 4 day stay in Banff. My boyfriend had steak and I had cod and both meals were incredible. We had cocktails during the meal rather than wine and this turned out to be a good choice - the grape smash cocktails went down particularly well! The staff were... More

Was a little hesitant about coming here as it is a franchise. Generally find franchises good when in larger groups or with the full family but can be disappointing for a couple. Not the case here. Food was good, drinks were good and atmosphere was fun (we were on the main floor). Server was very good as well. We weren't... More

We tried this place on a recommendation from a friend and it was a lovely evening. The service was very attentive without being too 'in your face' and when we couldn't decide which wine to have the server offered us two samples of a decent amount, which we also drank! He knew his stuff about the beers on offer and... More

Came here for dinner mid week, fantastic atmosphere. Sat at the bar for a drink then headed up stairs to the beautiful dining room. Steaks were cooked to perfection, highly recommend the blue cheese sauce to accompany your steak. If we are ever back in Banff it will be the first place we visit.
