We had a birthday celebration dinner at Saffron Salmon last Friday night and it was wonderful. The view of the bay was just beautiful, we were literally sitting over the water as the restaurant is built on a pier.Our service was attentive, friendy- excellent.For appetizers, we had the goat cheese platter and the roasted fresh Brussel sprouts. Both were divine... More

DH is a big Fish and Chips fan...he said his order here was "OK". My Ceasar salad was too dry, and my crab/shrimp cake was bland. They do take reservations, were open on a Monday night, and the service was good.

We had a lovely lunch this afternoon at Salmon Saffron in Newport, OR. The view is unbeatable (window table overlooking the ocean!). Every table has an ocean view. Our waitress Lonna was fantastic - super friendly and really attentive! I suggest the Seafood Stew - don't miss it! My boyfriend had a sandwich with halibut - large chunks of halibut... More

Great view of Yaquina bay from every seat. Lunch entrees were $15-18 but presented with culinary flare and lots of flavor. We tried the mini sandwich combos - dungeoness crab blt, salad of choice and clam chowder. It was good but the sandwich was tiny. Should have sacrificed variety for full serving size. They were willing to ale anything special... More

One of our favorites for a quality meal at lunch or dinner. The restaurant is on the Bay and if you have a window table you have some nice views of Yaquina Bay. It is a small place with a casual ambiance and always very experienced servers many of whom have been there for years. The food quality is excellent... More

Just got home from a delicious lunch at Saffron Salmon. The food and service are consistently excellent. The restaurant offers a good selection of fresh, local seafood cooked in a lighter manner than coastal restaurants offen use. Vegetables are fresh and thoughtfully prepared. The dessert menu offers tempting standbys with modern twists. The restaurant over looks Yaquina Bay, busy with... More

While walking along the bay front today we decided to try this instead of our usual place. It was a good choice. The restaurant is small but was not terribly crowded when we stopped and the view of the harbor is spectacular. The server greeted us promptly and in a friendly manner, inviting us to take our choice of the... More

We have eaten here several times and it never disappoints. It's great in every season. The service is "fine dining" class. The food is always good, sometimes gourmet. They have a varied menu, designed to suit the needs of a range of dining tastes. There are burgers for the kids, fish and chips for the economy minded and real taste... More
