One of best in Newport

Beautifully prepared food, and wonderful view. It's a little off the main street so unless you know where it is you may miss it. I would recommend reservations.

We have been coming to this delightful restaurant for several years. View of the Yaquina Bay and bridge. Sightings of sea lions and lots of birds. The food is unconventional coastal cuisine, good portions and always a daily special.

Restaurant was crowded. (I didn't make reservations). Entree was excellent, appetizer mediocre. Squashed into a corner table next to the door. Somewhat snooty service without any reason. No view as stuck in a nook. Enjoyed the people fishing on the dock. Price was steep.

This place was amazing!! We ate goat cheese, brussel sprouts, chowder, linguine, risotto, cobbler, & cake and everything was marvelous! Great views too. We watched seals and boats and the sun go down while we ate all this wonderful food. Lonna was our server, she was great! She gave great suggestions and made me laugh a few times as well.... More

My wife and I had lunch here this past Saturday while staying in Newport over the weekend. What a wonderful change from most of the restaurants down on the waterfront. This place is smaller in size but the food is well above all the others we've tried. The portobello sandwich well exceeded our expectations. The view, relaxed atmosphere, great service... More

i would expect a good view and okay food, but a good view and good food is to be appreciated. saffron salmon is on a dock above the bay. I had lunch there a squid pasta dish, nicely flavored tasty as a puntanesca should be. unexpected good food always a delight.

The first time we went to Saffron Salmon was on New Years Eve. We thought it was going to be obnoxiously busy and the food lack luster (previous NYE restaurant visit experiences). We were surprised. We had a table by the window, and although too dark to see much it was still a treat. The food was exceptional. Perfect portions... More

The food was good, but no better than many other places with more pocket-friendly prices. The prices at Saffron Salmon were absolutely exorbitant.

We had lunch at the Saffron Salmon and it was a great experience. Weather was great and enhanced the setting which overlooks the Yaquina Bay waterfront and historic Yaquina Bay Bridge with crab fishing being done of the pier just outside your window. My wife enjoyed the Seafood Cake ($21) which is a blend of crab and shrimp meat with... More
