In 2015 we had a family meal the evening before our wedding. It was so good then that we chose this as our place to go for our anniversary meal on our return to Canada. We were not disappointed. The place was a little quiet...but it didn’t stop there being a lovely atmosphere. The food was fantastic and the staff could not do enough for us. If you like good food, good service… and simply amazing steaks then don’t walk past this place.More

We wanted to try this eatery because of the reviews. We wanted to take it back to our hotel so we ordered and then waited. We got back to the hotel and wondered what was up. The food was good but the order was screwed...up. We ordered 2x7oz steaks with broccoli and mashed potatoes for each and a starter of gnocchi. What we got was 2 steaks, 4 broccoli (should’ve been 2) and the mashed potatoes. They gave us the scallops and gnocchi and not the starter shared one. So they messed up the order, charged us for a much more expensive gnocchi order ($35 instead of $12) and charged us for2 extra sides (the extra broccoli). To too it off there was no cutlery nor napkins. What a screw up. Check your orders!!!More

Great food - my steak was top notch. Prices are the usual for Banff but the quality is also there. Service was good. I came for a good steak and I had a great one !

My husband and I were travelling through Banff, and decided to stop and make a night of it. We sprang for a nice hotel, and doggie daycare so we can go out for dinner without worrying about leaving the dog alone, and looked forward to...a nice night out. Saltlik's hours state they're open until 11pm. We dropped by around 8:30 and were told it's a 45 minute wait, but they'll text us when the table is ready. We debated trying somewhere else with less wait, but had heard good good things about Saltlik, so we waited. After an hour we asked for a status update on our table, and were told they're closing early and we couldn't have the table we'd waited an hour for. No apology, just a statement that the hostess should tell people tables aren't guaranteed (she didn't). They had our number the whole time, and didn't bother to text us to say we were out of luck. Instead, we had to inquire after a long wait only to find out we wouldn't be seated after an hour of waiting with our name on the list. Everywhere else decent was closed by that time. Our one night in Banff was ruined. And the best part was that the employee (manager?) at the door when we inquired about our table (after an hour of waiting) didn't even apologize. He acted as though we should have known better, and just kept repeating that the hostesses are trained to say table isn't guaranteed. I've heard good things about this place, but I'll never know. Never coming back here. (BTW the Keg down the street seated us 25 minutes befoe closing time, and treated us like gold. Unexceptional and rushed meal (self-imposed, the staff never made us feel rushed), but I'd trade that in a heartbeat to this place who acted as though it was our priveledge to *maybe* get a table there.)More

My wife and I shared Roasted Beet Hummus with corn chips, followed by a Caesar salad and Certified Angus Hand-pressed Beef Burger. We chose their Crispy Baked Potato 'Salad' as a side with the burger. All were flavourful, nicely presented and freshly prepared. The burger...in particular was excellent, and the Crispy Baked Potato Salad, served warm with zippy spices and melted cheese was a delicious surprise. Staff were polite and engaging. A pleasant place for dinner. Recommended.More

Ordered the 10oz filet & wife got the burger - both were awesome. We had to sit outside due to limited staff, so inside wasn't available. Was gorgeous outside so not really an issue.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Saltlik. The atmosphere is nice with fairly private booths. Andy from Lethbride, our server, added some humor to the evening while being attentive to our needs. The food arrived hot and tasty. I found the steak...to be slightly over salted but enjoyable. Overall a good meal experience. Would recommend for a nice steak meal.More

We booked this restaurant well in advance specifically to go back and have their scalloped potatoes after we fell in love on a previous trip. Since this is a franchised restaurant the scalloped potatoes have been removed from the menu and we were soooo disappointed....We did follow through and eat there, trying a range of appetizers which were all very good. Our waiter was very personable but should be careful about assuming traditional marital roles (I will leave it at that). Have fun, dress up and enjoy the views, it is still a great place to eat.More

The appetizers are so good. They have lovely wines and servers were very friendly. They also have a very nice patio!
