Had the seafood stew and while it wasn't a huge bowl it was perfect for lunch. Very fresh seafood, great broth, tasty bread on the side. This is a place I'll surely go to again on our next visit down. Right on the water. Nice servers, very clean. Absolutely no complaints.

We had a spicy seafood stew and gluten free clam chowder and a very good beet salad for dinner. The restaurant is right on the harbor and the sea lions entertain you throughout dinner. The service, view and food were excellent.

The bay front view is so relaxing from this very small and excellent restaurant. We started with calamari, not your normal deep fried stuff but sauteed with goodness. I recommend the spinach salad that was dressed perfectly. Salmon caught locally was in season so that was the perfect choice. They also have a very nice selection of wines.

Well worth checking out. The location, the service and the meals were all excellent. The grilled filet of cod I had was fantastic, and my wife's chowder was just as good. The menu is unique, but pretty limited, otherwise 5 stars.

Wonderful restaurant! I arranged a corporate function through Saffron Salmon, after they were recommended to me by another Newport eatery. The staff were friendly and accommodating for my party of 10, and easy to work with for the reservation. The diners loved the food and drink, and all had very positive reviews of their food and the overall experience. After... More

My family and I ate here for dinner and had a great time. The hostess and servers were friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent. My boys had the fish and chips and they thought it was great. I had the bayfront platter and it was outstanding. The salmon was perfect and the crab cakes were very good. The view... More

We had salmon and it was ultra fresh , so moist and tasty. The service was very attentive , the wine appropriate and the location on a pier overlooking the bay. Not much lacking. When in Newport , drop by for a delicious meal.

We have been to Saffron Salmon several times when visiting the Central Oregon Coast (twice during this last eight day trip). The restaurant is at the end of the Western most waterfront pier, so there is a great view of the bay and bay bridge. The menu is well thought out and creative. The food is fresh and a cut... More

This is a lovely restaurant that sits right on the bayfront. The atmosphere was wonderful, not too noisy, and we enjoyed watching the people outside the restaurant wrestle with the crab they caught. The restaurant is very cramped though, so make a reservation! The food was delicious and was elaborately served in a creative but elegant design. I ordered the... More

Absolutely delicious food, with an appropriate emphasis on seafood. Each plate was attractively styled, and the portions were large without being ridiculous. Like so many places on the Oregon coast, they strive to be local and sustainable. Great, relaxed (but never maddeningly slow) service. A wonderful meal for three, topped off by a splendid warm Marionberry Cobbler a la mode!
