Saltwood – Charcuterie & Bar
Saltwood celebrates the new Southern hearth, a gathering place where warming spirits and authentic flavor come together. Inspired by the alchemy of Salt and Wood smoke, a charcuterie-driven menu features heritage cured meats and game, locally sourced ingredients and artisan flavors that marry Old World techniques and recipes to new farmhouse traditions .
My favorite salad bar in Atlanta. Wish they were open on Saturday’s.
This restaurant is going through a re-launch and they are trying new and exciting menu items. We tried the Grilled Octopus and the Pork Belly appetizers, both excellent. We also tried the Duck Confit entree and were not let down.
The service was fantastic, very attentive and courteous.
You HAVE to try their deserts.
The weekday lunch salad bar is so good! I love being able to build my salad just the way I want it. This spot used to be a known secret, but the masses are catching on. If you're feeling carbie, the cornbread and the bread pudding are both yummy!
Terrible service. And the food was just meh.
Service and food were outstanding. My server (sorry I forgot her name, she worked Sat night and Sunday brunch) was amazing!! My only suggestion would be to expand the menu selections to have more choices for dinner.
An excellent salad bar presentation---the very best I have ever seen
We had a great experience, and since we had no idea what to expect- it made it more fun. We got a sample of everything- I think the fun is in the experimenting (what cheese goes with what meat and which topping).
If you decide to skip the meat/cheese/bread plate, they still have some good dishes. Both entrees were good, but if you're looking for cheap, then this is not the place for you.
Second time at Saltwood. Experience has declined significantly. There is no charcuterie carving any more and variety has really deteriorated.
Best salad bar in Midtown ATL
Waited an hour plus on our entree. Just as we were cancelling our food to leave, our food arrived. It was warm at best. Other tables that were seated after us , received their food. Something was very wrong.
Our waitress was phenomenal. Very accurate fine dining experience.
Salad bar is amazing, so is their tea. Love this place
We live so close and it was my gf’s birthday and had never gone. Their food was amazing, very fresh, very flavorful!
We enjoyed trying the different items on the menu although too many are fried. Service was great! Drink options were really nice too!
This restaurant was so delicious! I had trout and my friend had the rib eye steak. We also shared a cheese board. The atmosphere was beautiful and the creative cocktails were delicious and the wine selection was great. I can't wait to go again.
Just not worth the prices at all. The place was pretty empty, so I guess I missed the memo. For these prices, I would expect professional servers, but it was more like Ruby Tuesday’s. Food was okay, but fried chicken was not $29 good.
Arrived to empty tables but staff told us our table not ready bc they just received the reservation from open table. I had made the reservation hours earlier.... then, they told us the kitchen was backed up, even though no one was actually there dining. They need to hire more staff

Went for Christmas brunch. Once we learned they were only serving a burger menu, we had to relocate to another restaurant with more options.
Good food...but for the price point, service was not good. We were the only people in the entire restaurant but the service just was not attentive. Service was unable to assist with wine selection.
Service was terrible -- we waited forever to order, and then to have the food delivered. When the food was delivered, it was cold and we sent it back to be warmed. 15 minutes later, the food came out, and it was of marginal quality. I called the manager over, he apologized, then the poor service continued.
Sunday afternoon must not be a good time to go to Saltwood. It was almost empty, and still the service was extremely poor.
It was a very poor choice for a special occasion. We will not be going back and I will spread the word to avoid.
Our brunch experience did not live up to expectations; while the restaurant is comfortable enough, and the service was pleasant, it took over half an hour to get our food. We had an 8:45am reservation to beat the brunch crowds, and the restaurant only had 3 other tables of patrons when were seated (so not busy or crowded), and while the food was alright, it was stone cold upon arrival (chicken and waffles, the ham and cheese). Coffee wasn't that great, and refills were served tepid. They pushed their buffet (both the hostess and server), and it wasn't anything special, especially at the price point, and besides, if I'm going to have a nice brunch, I want food cooked to order. Atlanta has too many wonderful places to have brunch so I can't say that I will return to Saltwood.
The menu is confusing and misleading. Nowhere does it say the charcuterie for one is only one piece of meat and one cheese. Once we figured that out, and attempted to order, 2 of the 5 meat choices were not available. The pulled pork was more like a cold sausage... The pork pate was very bland. The Caesar salad was a pretty presentation, but whole leaves of romaine are difficult to eat or cut!
Perfect setting, food and service
I'm not sure I've ever had slower service. When we came in, we were the only customers in the restaurant. Granted, there were 5 of us, but we didn't order anything out of the ordinary. Just the standard charcuterie. By the time we left, about 4 other parties had come and gone (they had another waiter). Our waiter would leave to go check on something and it would be 15-20 min before he'd show back up. We were all very disappointed in the service, me especially so, as I chose it for my birthday celebration.
Enjoyed a quick bite and drinks before a concert Saturday Night. Food and drink were great . . . although we ordered very HEAVY appetizers and dessert, felt the waitress' attitude changed when she realized we weren't ordering entrees. That was the only negative . . .
Our server Shauna was the bomb, very knowledgeable on wines and cheeses
Have been wanting to try this place for a while! The food was very good. Although, the menu layout can be a little confusing. I think if the restaurant is going to branded as a charcuterie bar there should be more additional tapas like dishes to go along with it. The service could have been better.
The good was fresh and ample. The service was pleasant.
Menu selections very limited. Visited pre-theatre but I did not enjoy the meal.
The lunchtime salad bar is a must! With fresh, high-quality ingredients, the salads are delicious and an incredible value. A personal fav in Midtown!
Favorite salad bar! So many ingredients, great quality dressings and well seasoned proteins. And the dessert was good too!
I enjoyed Saltwood three times during my business trip--twice for breakfast and once for lunch. Each time the service was great and the food was delicious. The restaurant is beautifully designed, also.
Service is too slow and if you don’t get the salad bar the food takes forever to come out of the kitchen. Service is the problem not the food!
The server took forever to come by and ask for our drink order and only came by twice more the rest of the time we were there (Mind you, there were only 5 other tables seated). The charcuterie was below subpar for a place that has “charcuterie” in the name and the grilled bread was so stale I almost lost a tooth! All in all, we were very disappointed with this whole ordeal.
We had a good meal, but it was not as other meals we have had here. It was short staffed and difficult serving the guests in lobby eating area as well as those inside the restaurant, but the staff was doing a good job despite the situation. The bread with the charcuterie was not freshly toasted but our request was made quickly and the bread was great. The skirt steak dish was tender and well seasoned and the noodle bowl was good (tofu would be a good addition).
Perfect spot after a busy day to share food with coworkers. Everything we tried we really liked - chicken nuggets were plentiful, asparagus/ham salad was very fresh (although not the easiest to split 4 ways) and short ribs were very well-prepared and tasty. Would definitely go again!
The menu is tricky, each dish seems to have a few too many ingredients. The “Caesar” salad was odd, why call it a Caesar of the only classic Caesar ingredient is Romain? None of us enjoyed our dishes, not as expected. We left at least half of every dish uneaten. Servers didn’t find this unusual, and didn’t ask if everything was OK. We would not go back.
This place has become my favorite go to for lunch. Love it.
