Enjoyable food and atmosphere!

We stumbled upon this restaurant when antiquing at The Factory. It had a relaxed, attractive setting. We both enjoyed our meal--my husband had Chicken-fried chicken and I had shrimp and grits that were delicious. Would highly recommend!

The waiter and the pie were terrific. We had chicken fried chicken for the main course. Gravy was heavy. Greens were strangely spiced. I am thinking the chefs in Franklin are trying hard, but they are missing something. The Sangria was watery. The waiter was so nice I wish I had something better to say about the food.

We arrived before 6, so we could only order appetizers. The Caesar salad was one of the best I have ever had. We also tried the Buffalo chicken on a biscuit, gumbo, and bam bam shrimp - it was all wonderful. Look forward to returning and trying out the full menu.

I had the halibut with grits special ($36). The fish could not have been cooked better. Served on a bed of very slightly cheesed grits and turnip greens with a hint if apple cider vinegar.

Great local establishment. It's worth seeking this place out. The vibe is eclectic, the service is 5 star, the wine list is excellent and the food is top notch. Live music most nights. There's a cool bar and the "Blue Room" can be secured for private events. The highlight, though is the food. Imaginative twists on some mainstay dishes (Country... More

We love the Studio Tenn theater productions which take place literally 25 steps away from Saffire, so we always stop here for a few drinks and a Cheese Plate prior to the performances. We sit at the bar, chat with others, most of whom are locals, and it's a really great vibe. Good service and great food overall!

A friend and I had heard good reviews for Saffire so we tried it for lunch. I had the fish tacos and she had the chicken sandwich. Both meals were ok but nothing special. The atmosphere and service were good. Based on the price of the lunch and the quality, I will not be back.

We recently went to a guitar show in the Factory Shops in Franklin Tennessee and stumbled upon this restaurant. We decided to go there for brunch and were delighted with everything! The food, atmosphere, service were all top notch! We loved it! If were were in the area longer, we would have loved to come back for dinner too! Highly... More
