We've been a number of times and this is one of our favorite places to eat in Banff. We find the upstairs restaurant to have a warm feel and enjoy the ambience. The food is always excellent, but the service on our most recent visit was a little lacking. Our waiter mentioned he was losing his voice and we had a very difficult time hearing him, and that makes the ordering experience a little more challenging and to be candid a little more of a hassle than it should be. If you haven't eaten here before, plan on sharing side dishes, probably one for each two people, and don't really worry about saving room for dessert as they are pretty pedestrian. The stakes however are fantastic.

I would firstly like to say that the service we received tonight deserves a better rating than average, in fact it was excellent, but the food was high priced and slightly pretentious. We've had just as good steak (and drinks) in other restaurants in Banff at half the price. This restaurant is trying too hard to be a fine dining experience.

Going to the saltlik when the family visit my hometown Banff has been a tradition, but since they wouldn't waive a charge for bringing our Dads 60th birthday cake to the table I'm left with a bad taste in my mouth.

Sorry Saltlik, we didn't go to Earls who you apparently base your policy on. The 7 of us came to you for good food and good service. You were unfortunately let down by an arrogant manager.

Working as a local tour guide I've had the pleasure of recommending your restaurant 100's of times but those reccomenations will be no more.

Hope it was worth it.
