Cool place with great atmosphere and wonderful service. The menu looks like it would be great but the kitchen executed everything poorly. Over-cooked octopus that was devoid of salt. And everything else we ordered was just ok. The cocktail was way watered down.

Enjoyed our meals. We sat at the bar and had a great conversation with our bartender/server for the evening. (he may have been the manager). Octopus delicious, Brussels and we both had lamb pappardelle. Would certainly return in the future.

Wow - what a great Father’s Day brunch! Saltyard served a variety of on-menu and off-menu selections that all tasted great-especially those breakfast items! Service was attentive and they place looks as hip and cool as ever. I especially appreciate that it isn’t as noisy as so many Buckhead restaurants. Keep up the great work Saltyard - we’ll be back!

The kids decided to take me to Saltyard for Fathers Day lunch. I’ve gotta give the kids huge props for their choice. They didn’t have their regular menu, but had a buffet set up for the day. Wow, just wow! What an amazing spread. From the charcuterie table, to the sausages, shrimp and grits, pastas and cheeses. And that was just the appetizer to the main courses! The prime rib was amazing. The pulled pork, salmon, and spaghetti and meatballs were all amazing. Best Brüssel sprouts I have ever had, as well as the potatoes and Mac and cheese. Just phenomenal. And to top it all off the desserts that we had. The bread pudding and peach cobbler were delicious. This was our first visit to Saltyard, but it will definitely not be our last. The service was fantastic, and their signature cocktails were terrific. We’re looking forward to our next visit and trying their regular menu.

Celebrated Father’s day at Saltyard last Sunday. They had special Father’s day brunch buffet and it was really fantastic! I’ve been saltyard several times and it always on point! The chicken is probably the best in the city. The Brussels are amazing. The drinks are great. I just love this restaurant. I will definitely be back.

My husband and I live in The Brookwood, and so Saltyard was a convenient choice for they are in the building. It was wonderful! Saltyard offered a special buffet for Father’s Day. Expansive selection of delicious food - amazing Prime Rib, out of this world French Toast (nothing ordinary about this French Toast), Mac N’ Cheese, Petit Fours for desserts - and much more. Reasonably priced at $45. a person for adults, and $20. for children younger than 12. Perfectly prepared Peach Bellinis for an additional cost. Excellent Customer Service. Helpful, attentive and friendly. Perfect celebration for Father’s Day.

I'd probably go 3.5, but since this is based on 1 visit, I'll round up. Service was good overall, but not noteworthy. Overall, I'd describe Saltyard as a place I'd be happy to go back to if it were convenient, but I'm not going out of my way to go there. Food details...
-Cheeseburger sliders - basic, but really good. Good quality meat, properly cooked. Recommended
-Salmon Ceviche Taco - not good at all. Incredibly bland, actually - I'd describe it as a total waste of calories. Highly not-recommended. 1 Food star deduction for serving this.
-Crispy Brussels Sprouts - fairly typical, but very well done. Would order again.
-Pappardelle with lamb ragout - Nice fresh pasta, but the sauce did have a bit of a gaminess - not overwhelming, and there were good flavors otherwise, but it was noticeable. Good overall, though.
-Spaghetti and Meatballs - I was shocked at how good the meatballs were. Really delicious.
-Rabbit poutine (special) - Excellent - would definitely order if they had it next time.

The cocktail list isn't extensive but it's unique and the two I tried (blanking on the names) were both very good.

This is great place for a little something different, but the food is pretty expensive, and it's not a place to go if you have hearing problems. We will continue to come back, but wish our final bill weren't so pricey compared to other places we go. Oh well - that's Buckhead/Midtown, right?

We visited the Sunday evening of Memorial Day weekend. We assumed it would be quiet, but not that we would be the only people there! Still, the food was delicious, and our server was great. The only hiccup was that I ordered a small plate for my entree and it came out first before the shared small plates. Not a huge deal. Every time I dine here, I don't know why I don't go more often because it's delicious!

This place is terrible. I’ve tried it twice. The service was so slow. Our food came at different times and when it did it was not hot. It was not busy —- so there is no excuse. The frittata is spongy and tasteless. The only food half way decent was the peach pancake. I could go on and on....

Place wasn’t very busy when we walked in, which is typically not the best sign. That was a misperception on how good the place is. We were really impressed with the cocktails (Spa Water), appetizers (shishito peppers and gazpacho), and entree (pappardelle).
