Interesting selections. Some items smaller portions than expected. Next to somewhat noisy bar scene with no separation wall.
What a little gem! And all hidden in the back lobby of the Loews Hotel Midtown. We
Started with a small cheese board and the deviled eggs - absolutely delightful! From there we had the Roasted Cauliflower - the first words from my wife’s mouths after tasting it was “can you make this?” - seared scallops in broth (just heavenly), and the steak frites with a chimicurri sauce we fought over. Can’t go wrong here.
Service was inattentive at best. For example every bottle of wine we ordered we had to pay for and we had to ask for water.
Food was mediocre. Cheeses plate could have been bought out of a grocery store.
The salad bar was great, but the line for it took half the lunch hour. I’d have to have more time to do this again.
Salad bar is awesome.
We had a wonderful meal with excellent and interesting small plates at Saltwood. We ate outside with the warm weather and had a pleasant time with the great staff service.
Horrible lighting. Tables around us were not bussed and reset. The whole dining room was still set for breakfast service and we came for dinner at 6pm.
We had the Saltwood Charcuterie followed by the apple cake, both were delicious. It would be nice if the charcuterie came with more than 2 meats and cheeses.
There was an event that evening and stood waiting for a host to show up at the entrance of the restaurant for 15 minutes. No one showed up so my friends and I sat in the bar area instead. We had to order everything (drinks and food) from the bartender since there were no servers floating around I suspect due to the event. Overall, the food was fine and the bartenders service was good but was sort of a pain to have to go to bar for drinks and food. Won't come again on a busy event night.
Staff was friendly but the rest of the experience was disappointing. The food had miniscule portions for the price. Steak was seriously underdone and served with the type of French fries you get from McDonald's. Service was really slow. Self-parking was not validated but it would have been if the valet service handled your car. Burger bar menu was not offered. Save your money.
It was great first time going there Food a little pricey but was good!
All service people were fine, food was not good, mostly cold to warm temperatures. Basic hotel dining room. Big disappointment .
Service was terrible, constantly waiting on drinks and the service team seemed disorganized not knowing what to do. The food seemed spoiled, would not go here again when there are so many other places in Atlanta that are far better.
Perfect date night place romantic and chic! Service was a little slow being that it wasn’t to busy but the fried chicken and the shrimp and grits made up for it we did the bbq empanadas which my husband seemed to really enjoy only advice i would give is bring new silverware between courses 8 out of 10
The menu needs to be updated on open table, but the overall experience was good.
Everything is always great at Saltwood. The salad bar at lunchtime is fresh and there is always a lot to choose from. Can't beat the cobbler and the house made chips.
Very slow service in a very slow restaurant. Food was acceptable but not anything special at all.
This restaurant is in Loews - the atmosphere is good but the menu isn't great for a hotel. Nothing too good for travelers. Salads - plain good food. Everything has bacon or pork. I understand that is the theme - just not good for hotel.
The food was really good. We had bloody Mary's they were just ok, need improvement. The nigh before we were at the same place for drinks and snacks and it was great with good service. However, the server for our lunch was not the best, she was just not a good waiter, I am not sure if she was new, untrained or just did not know her job.
Amazing server. Nice atmosphere. Pricey but quality food and great portions.
Wow! The service, cocktails and cuisine was amazing. Our server Kiayanna was knowledgeable and attentive, truly fantastic. Chef Jeremy stopped by the table and we totally geeked out on their home made ham and his version of pumpkin spice for the season. I’ve written a lot of reviews on hotels that I’ve stayed at but this I my first restaurant review. Saltwood is that good! Thanks for a wonderful evening.
We went to Atlanta to see our son for Christmas, and chose Saltwood because the online menu had enticing choices for meat-eaters and veggie-lovers alike. The Saltwood Board included wonderful cheeses, jams, and mustards to go with the meats. The steak frites had marvelous flavorings, the cod was delicious, and the only problem with the roasted cauliflower was the generous portion! The wine list had sufficient variety of grapes and prices, so we could get a bottle of something we liked without feeling overcharged. Some of us found the smoked ice cream more attractive than others did, while the apple butter cake was fantastic. Our server Kiyanna was a real pro and very friendly. The whole staff was professional and courteous despite working on Christmas Day. I loved the wood seats, tables, and walls. We ate early (5:30), making it quiet enough for easy conversation, but it felt like the noise would not be an issue at any hour. I would return any time.
This was a great place and the food was amazing. We had Christmas breakfast and although they didn't have a Christmas Menu the regular breakfast menu was good. Our server Nathan was great with an upbeat personality who really went over and beyond to provide excellent customer service.
The was a charity event going on while there so the service was a bit slow, but our server did a good job of dealing with the volume. The food was exceptional, especially the Venision which was cooked to the perfect temperature. Drink selection was average, but the food was exceptional!
Good food, loved the local cheese selections, cocktails fun and tasty. Our food presentation was great.
WAitress was very nice and accommodating. Great attitude.
Love the lunch time salad bar! So many options and the prices are great!
The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We were pleased with our experience.
The food was good. The service was fair and really had to chase the waiters for service. It was just a strange experience.
Food and service were wonderful, drinks were okay
Food was good however disappointed with very very slow service even though the restaurant was not at capacity. Being to many other Loews hotel around the world, this hotel doesn't seem up to the standard to those outside US.
The food was decent, but the service was not great. It took too long to get waited on and then longer to wait to get bottomless mimosa's for Sunday Brunch. I would try again for a night cap.
Delicious brunch with family!!
great lunch place. the salad bar is outstanding whether for business or friends
I took my husband to Saltwood for lunch on his birthday. Initially, I had expected to be able to enjoy the charcuterie and bar however this is only available for dinner. However, they are known for an INCREDIBLE salad bar so we decided to give it a try. It does not disappoint. You can build the salad of your dreams; high quality ingredients, variety of vinegars and oils, dressings and FRESH COOKED chicken, steak and shrimp options. They also have a lunch menu that includes various gourmet burgers. We will definitely come back for dinner.
Ok the salad bar is as advertised awesome! However they really don't encourage you to order anything else! We had to beg for a drink. Again had to flag downs waiter to get a refill and the first person was just downright rude. Having said that I would go back. A great bargain.
I would definitely like to return for personal dining. This was a business lunch and quite noisy. Service was exceptional. Food overpriced for lunch salads for 5 ($125.00) with no alcohol.
Thanks for the opportunity to give insight to my experience.
Apparently this place is a glorified Salad Bar at lunch. They really need to warn folks.
Having looked online and seen the substantial burger menu, my partner and I were quite surprised to find that this place is a prissied up salad bar at lunch. Quite affordable and on the same level as Whole Foods , when it comes to quality, but thats it. A salad bar.
That was not at all what we were expecting for a sit down business meal, and the substantial line of office dwellers who clearly appreciate this cafeteria style meal significantly distracted from what we were expecting when making the reservation.
PRO TIP, do NOT self park. They validate valet, but you pay to self park.
In the end, it is a nice salad bar. The meat was over cooked, there was a huge selection of vinegars and oils, and it was certainly better than Kroger, but not as good as Eatzi's used to be.
My wife would love it. NOT a place for a business lunch though. Disappointed we were not warned on the website.
We were really looking forward to an amazing brunch but that is not what we got.
To start off the service was just OK. It would have been phenomenal for a casual dining chain restaurant but not what we were expecting. The server spilled the water bottles on one of our people when delivering and did little more than an amusing apology. My water and coffee went empty and sat empty for quite some time despite me trying to flag someone down. The server barely checked on us and didn't come by once after the food was delivered.
The starters were pretty good. Nothing special
About any of it. The atmosphere was probably the best thing going for this place. I had the build your own Benedict. My eggs were over cooked. The potatoes were room temperature. The grits were fantastic though.
For the price not worth it. Will not go back
The kitchen seemed distracted, and really did a poor job of preparing all the dishes. Wait staff was wonderful, but the food was either to salty or in the case of the fish, overcooked. The lamb looked good, but was extremely tough and the sauce oversalted. Not a good experience for my wife and I.
Delicious salads, amazing homemade chips, always fast and easy.
