I went here for lunch with some co-workers and can't say that I would recommend this place. Walking inside, Saltaire has a very nice decor with a large outdoor patio. We sat indoors, next to one of the large windows and had a good view of the water and Stanley Park.
The tables and chairs are way too close together, as my co-workers who sat across from me had to interrupt the people eating behind them in order to get to their chairs.
The menu sounded delicious - I ordered the Pesto Chicken Focaccia sandwich with yam fries. Also ordered was the Spinach & Roasted Apple Salad and a Prawn Fetuccini. No one was overly impressed with their meals - my sandwich had absolutely no flavour other than a hint of burnt chicken. However we all agreed that the yam fries were good.
As far as service goes, I just had an ice water to drink which only got refilled once over the entire 1.5 hours we were there. It wasn't busy (Wednesday, noon) but our server was nowhere around. Also, back on the seats being too close together, our server couldn't reach one plate to add fresh ground pepper to, so she completely leaned over the plate of my co-worker to do so.
If the food was good, I'd say the prices would be a 3 or 4. However, the food wasn't outstanding or memorable - how do you put a price on tasteless?
Won't be back.
