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

Romantic atmosphere and fairly good food make for a nice night out. Menu is sometimes puzzling. It seems as though they change from rustic/country to hip/urban with some regularity. But whatever you are served, you will find it enjoyable. Good cocktails. DON'T take your children. Please, can we have a place for adults?!

Although we had read that there were free appetizers that didn't seem to be the case. the happy hour wines were 2 for 1 so most everyone there was getting tipsy. We order appetizers which were tasty and large enough. they serve raw oysters too but the prices... More

An interesting combination of a good wine list and good entrees, but everything just a little bit ... fried. The fish in the blackened fish tacos were very much over cooked. The cheese and meat tray were ok (not much meat, by the way). But I will say that the bread pudding was awfully tasty (as was the Mississippi mud... More

Went to Saffire with friends for dinner and really enjoyed our meal. Made it for 1/2 priced wine bottle night on Tuesday, which was terrific! The 5 of us each ordered something different and we enjoyed it all. I will definitely go back to Saffire next time I am in Franklin.

This place was recommended by the woman in the bookstore I was in earlier. She said it was artsy and interesting. I loved the decor and wanted to photograph everything. They have chalkboard specials including a farmer's market plate which was a nice break from the heavier meat plate specials in the area.

Enjoyed the porkchop, the collards are awesome. Chicken fried chicken was also excellent, the four of us were very pleased.

Always great food - no matter what. Very fresh and very local when possible. Artistic presentation. New ideas for food combinations. Very good selection of wine and beer. Wait staff is always fantastic!

I love going to The Factory and Saffires is, by far, the best place to eat there. It feels like the menu is a bit limited but everything I have gotten is really good. The Tuesday 1/2 price bottled wine is nice.

Excellent salads and bread. Probably the best sweet potato fries in the area. Wonderful atmosphere with varied menu!
