Very small and cozy. The food is very good. Choices are limited. Service poor. We waited at least 10 minutes before our waiter came to our table once we were seated. Once drinks appeared, it was at least 10 or 15 minutes before he reappeared.

Anytime we are visiting Walla Walla, we have to remember to make reservations ahead of time at Saffron! It has always been excellent and this visit was no different. Our reservation was at the "bistro bar" and it suited us perfectly. Our waitress (Kimi) was excellent-very attentive, dealt with our uncertainty on what to order with a smile and suggestions,...

We arrived in Walla Walla, and on checking into our hotel, we were recommended to this small restaurant, and our hotel check-in clerk even phoned ahead to make sure there was a table available. The available table was for 10pm, but we were running on East Coast time, so wanted to eat a whole lot earlier, So as it was... More

We came here because the food is said to be excellent, with a lovely warm decor and a fascinating menu. Reservation recommended gave us a nice table and we began in some abandonment, highly recommended though I saw numerous couples quietly dining. A walk to the guest room revealed a strong presence of chefs in the rear, perhaps too hidden... More

Ambiance Saffron is well appointed in casual wood and wine themed furniture. It is a bit cramped, we have often made friends with our fellow diners since the tables are very close. Also, Saffron fills up fast. Please be certain to make reservations a week or more ahead or you'll not get in. Staff Cheerful and helpful. Always a good... More

Creative and exciting choices or small or larger plates. We tried several. Especially recommend the flat breads. Very crowded which made the service a bit slow but worth the wait. Great wines as well as food.

Was here for a fun birthday dinner and it didn't disappoint. Food was sublime, I especially enjoyed my Orechiette and snails and hangar steak was excellent as well. Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

It was a very cold night, but definitely worth venturing out to Saffron for dinner. The wine list is great and the food was amazing. My pork chops were very juicy and full of flavor. The Chocolate Terrine was deep and dark, pairing very well with full-bodied red wine.

This small restaurant in Walla Walla, WA, is large in all aspects of the dining experience. The food selection is grand (with emphasis on local), preparation of meals is expertly accomplished, and the wine list (loaded with locals) is excellent. We have not encountered poor service nor attitude, in any manner, in the two visits to the Mediterranean Kitchen. The... More

Meh!!! Just not all that it's cracked up to be. According to some this is the best restaurant in Walla Walla. Well let's just say it didn't quite live up to that. We came 6 people and ordered a variety of appetizers, main dishes and dessert. One salad (a carrot salad) and one dessert (Pena Cotta) got rave reviews, everything... More
