My husband and I own a timeshare in Newport. We used to love going to Newport in November until we learned that Saffron Salmon closes that month. So now we don't go to Newport in November anymore. That is how good the food is! So we were a week in Newport and ate at this amazing gem twice, once for... More

Had dinner here Jan 2, 2015, and was it ever excellent! Picked it from restaurant reviews on Tripadvisor, and although it wasn't rated the best, it should have been.mi have eaten at all the others, and the menu, food, fresh seafood, wait staff and view were outstanding. We started with the special cheese plate with our bottle of Chardonnay. Chose... More

The owner does not understand good customer service. She is rude and disrespectful to customers. Food does not make up for her lack of class.

goes out to eat on New Year's Eve. We did and were delighted with both the service and the food. The salmon was tasty and not overcooked. The brussel sprouts, although fried, were tasty and not at all greasy. The chowder had good flavor and was not thick and glumpy like you find at some other spots. The berry cobbler... More

The food and service are always top-notch. We often eat there on our anniversary. There are usually vegetarian options, and the kitchen does a great job with fresh fish.

Top dinner recommendation in Newport area! We went for dinner on a weekday evening - so glad that we had a reservation. The restaurant overlooks the bay and in the evening, you can catch the perfect dusk lighting. We had the fresh Pacific Cod Fish and Chips and the Wild mushroom Risotto. Both were evidently fresh and really well done.... More

Stopped here for lunch and the view of the harbor was real nice. We had a table by the window and there was a laminated card to help identify waterfowl. We saw a lot of cool birds while enjoying our chowder and salads. The salad was fresh with top quality greens and the service was good.

In an enchanted setting on Bay Street Pier overlooking the Yaquina Bay – a working fishing bay, complete with a bridge in background – sits this amazing restaurant. At the end of a long, exhausting voyage, this intimate (read: small) dining room filled our tummies and nourished our travel ravaged souls so completely we dined there two nights in a... More

This small restaurant just off Highway 101 is on a pier overlooking the bay and the bridge. At night the navigation lights blink a happy red or green. The local fish dishes are truly well-prepared. It was October and after high season and a wonderful stop along our drive.
