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

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?!

We went at 5 PM on a Wednesday night for happy hour. 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.
