Quaint Mediterranean

This restaurant is small but cozy, so call for reservations. We could see the kitchen from our table, which was fascinating. The service was good, and the food was great.

Chris and Island are amazing. Chris for the menu and preparation..Island for running the front end..Island make you feel like your either family, or a long and loved friend. Honestly, I cant say enough for this warm, cozy, comfortable mediterranean feel. Lately..my fave is the Bison Rib eye...dont forget to try the flatbreads!

This is a cozy restaurant away from the crowds in the center of Walla Walla. Chef has created an interesting and diverse menu, which changes depending on availability of local produce and product. It was recommended we sit at the counter, which afforded a great view of the kitchen. Tim worked with us, explaining all the dishes. We had a... More

Enjoyed a fabulous meal here. Food had great flavor and very creative dishes on the menu. We enjoyed our meal and evening until we looked at the corkage fee -- $20!! Are you kidding me? We bring in two $95 bottles of wine and get charged $20 for each bottle!! We don't mind paying corkage fees, but that is way... More

The restaurant has a great atmosphere, not too loud and good soft lighting. We made reservations a bit late, so all they had left were seats on the counter. It was so much fun watching the kitchen staff. The waitress was knowledgeable and attentive, the food excellent and the dessert delicious - a flowerless chocolate cake that even my husband... More

Incredible Mediterranean fusion restaurant in downtown Walla Walla. Lamb tagine was to die for--delicious, served traditionally. Flatbreads always tasty. Cozy atmosphere and attentive servers. Don't expect to get out on a budget: between the wine list and entree prices it's definitely a "special occasion" restaurant for me.

We came expecting a "fancy" meal that we could not find elsewhere. We were not disappointed as our meals were both unique and tasty.

This was way beyond my expectations. A delightful late lunch after golf. Had the lamb, sausage and shrimp flatbread and pomegranate blood orange sorbet. Some of the best food I have ever had at a restaurant! The service was excellent although we were the only party dining in at the time. It was slow since it was early Sunday.

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,...
