Always delicious

Love the atmosphere/decor, but the food is why I come! Delicious food, and fun drinks at the bar from a great bartender-ess. Have come for last 2 years and have never been disappointed with fried chicken or pork chop.

It can be a little noisy here, had to move away from the music so we could talk, but overall a good experience . The fried oysters and steak and biscuits were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The desert was a chocolate pie with whipped cream and a strawberry. Enjoy the diverse menu and try something unusual here.

Visited Saffire for holdiay dinner with family while in Franklin for Christmas. They did a great job of accommodating our party of 10 with excellent service. Food was wonderful and well prepared. A true Franklin gem.

My family ate at Saffire on my daughter's recommendation. Several of us had the chicken fried chicken which was wonderful! The pimento cheese burger was also declared very good. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and reservations are recommended. I would definitely eat there again!

Called to make reservations 3 weeks in advance and they were very friendly and organized. The best prime rib ever tasted! Hear to celebrate special event. Was leary of comments about being too noisy. Had reservations for 5pm....perfect on a thursday. Got very crowded by 6pm. But it was noisy fun! The energy was great and the manager visited our... More

My first visit to Saffire (Saturday night dinner) was a really good one. The second (Sunday brunch) was as good - both with the same excellent server (Rachel).

This is still one of my top five Franklin restaurants (Saffire, Red Pony, Stoney River, J. Alexander, Bonefish Grill, and an honorable mention to Cork & Cow), and has been for 15 years. The New South Caesar is my favorite recommendation. You can't go wrong here. I also like this as a lunch choice because it tends to be less... More

We ate from a brunch menu that had enough options. The salads and entrees were good. The atmosphere was good, but the waiter just didn't appear like he wanted to be there! This restaurant was in The Factory which had shops open after our noon reservations so we did some window shopping after brunch. I would recommend going to Saffire... More

Eclectic atmosphere with a nice menu. The fish and grits is really good! The southern Caesar salad is excellent and a nice alternative to a traditional salad. It can be a bit noisy, but it is fun!

I haven't been to Saffire in a few years, so we went for my husband's birthday dinner. We waited for over 45 minutes on a Wednesday evening to get in. When we were seated the first thing we noticed was that the atmosphere was very loud and the staff around our table were in a hurry and a bit frenzied,... More
