“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Forgot if I visited here because of it's TripAdvisor review or friend recommendation...but anyways:

Yum. I ordered a steak along with some side dishes, fries and mushrooms. Then finished it off with a dessert. Waitress was friendly and accommodating, and prices were reasonable.

I would come back here again.

“Enjoyable meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We were staying in Banff for 2 nights and ate here both evenings - despite looking at menus on a number of other restaurants. The first evening it was extremely busy with only one waitress downstairs who did a sterling job and we did not have to wait long for our drinks or our food. We enjoyed our meals but have to say my steak was 100% better on the 2nd evening. We would eat here again. We felt the prices were economical compared to other restaurants.

“Hungry in Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Popped down to Banff for the day and decided to stay for the night> Driven by the Salt Lik many times decided this was the night to try it out. Hostess was friendly our waiter was above excellent the meal was enormous I had the Halibut and the wife had a steak the sides were also delicious the veg special was butternut squash cubed and drizzled with maple syrup the lobster mashed potatoes were loaded with perfectly cooked lobster claws I highly recommend this place for a night out

“Huge Disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This was a returned visit to the Saltlik. After a great dining experience last year with my colleges, I was looking forward towards a similar second visit with my wife and in-laws . Except our server could not have made our dinner any worse...He messed up our orders from start to finish including our drinks. Our food took forever - half our meals arrived cold, and sides took over 15 minutes to be dropped off after we reminded him of them. Considering the restaurant was half empty we don't think it was justifiable to have our dinner ruined that way. It was extremely frustrating as we didn't expect amateur and inconsistent service from a reputable establishment especially when your paying the price for it. I was looking forward to impressing my family same way I was impressed but instead It was a huge disappointment.
