I loved the salad bar and thought the options on the bar and set up was so nice! The design of the place was really authentic and had a cool atmosphere. Unfortunately, there weren't many options besides the epic salad bar and the menus were not the same as listed online. If we had known what we were walking into before we went there we would've had a better experience. The website was very misleading. Our service was also not great which was surprising since the salad bar was self serve. Especially since the place advertises a charcuterie bar, I was expecting options along those lines but there were none.

Easter Brunch. They didn’t have their Easter Brunch menu or plans on line. Got there expecting their brunch menu, that was online. They told us that it was a prix fixe menu for $45 each. I thought well ok. I had two vegetarians with me. There were less options for them. Nothing was held in proper temps. No steamtables or chafing dishes. Everything was just in pots and bowls, or boards at room temp. My son is violently ill. Won’t be back. Sorry I went.

Easter brunch for $45 was not worth it. Hit or miss on the food, but absolutely not worth the price. $15 bottomless mimosa (no change to their normal menu) is a great deal for what you get. Wish I could say the same about the Easter brunch buffet.

Never thought I would crave a salad bar, but I've been to this place three times in a month! This is an excellent place to come for lunch with a coworker. Nice for chatting as you move through the salad line, and the decor and ambiance are lovely. Excellent choices and generous portions.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
