Great seafood

Best food! Clean and bright and on the water. We watched the Coast guard pull in to dock. Freshest ling cod fish and chips and the side dishes had amazing flavor.

Thanks to Trip Advisor we happened upon Saffron Salmon Monday May 11th for dinner. I called Saffron Salmon to see if they had any gluten free options...they did so we decided to give it a try. I'm so happy we did! The view is beautiful, the restaurant was really clean, service was great and friendly, and all the food the... More

My first visit here when SS opened left me with the impression that the restaurant was a bit twee. No longer, I am glad to say. Excellent food, great view of the bridge and harbor and superior service. Fish & chips, thin fries, Asian cole slaw and veggies were all perfect. Try the brazed brussel sprouts for a treat!

Surprisingly quiet and small restaurant located along the Newport historic bayfront, with solidly good food. There were four of us for dinner, and we shared bites. I had the bayfront platter which included small portions of the crab/shrimp cakes, grilled salmon, clam chowder, cole slaw and fries. The grilled salmon was the best of the bunch. I wish they had...

This place sits right on the water so great views from most tables. We also appreciated the restaurant providing entertainment by little harbour seals just below our window. You can go outside onto the big deck and take photos. The food wasn't the best we had in Newport but pretty good chowder, OK fish & chips. Worth a lunchtime stop,... More

We had dinner at Saffron Salmon tonight (Sunday). Not many people, maybe just four tables occupied. We ordered thd House Combination. It comes Salmon, crab cake, fries and vagetables. It was excellent. A red wine from Washington State was a perfect combination. The cherry on the top of the cake was this full moon rising.

We had dinner at Saffron Salmon at the suggestion of a co-worker who raved about this spot. What a disappointment. The good: the view was very nice. We were seated at a window table and watched sea lions, birds and boats. The bad:The chowder was mediocre and the shrimp cocktail was not very cold. The ugly: The daily special was... More

We had dinner here on a Monday evening and it was not particularly crowded. Our window table had an excellent view of the harbor and the Yaquina Bay bridge, and various sea life floated or swam by during our dinner (sea lions, cormorants, etc). The food was exquisite. Our party started with clam chowder, Oregon shrimp cocktail, and Caesar salad.... More

Had lunch at the harbor and would recommend this restaurant completely. After a terrible meal at another highly rated restaurant yesterday, it really wiped out the bad memores of the other place. This place rocks. Highly recommend the shrimp/crab cakes. Wife had mussels - incredible!
