We were excited to get a reservation here at the last minute, as we had tried two years ago but it was full. The food was amazing and the service outstanding. Although they were busy, on a Thursday night, they took the time to go through the menu with us to help us select a perfect meal. The only negative... More

And in Walla Walla that is saying something special. Great local wines by the glass as well as the bottle. My Bison ribeye was perfectly set up by two local reds, the Leonetti was superb. The vegetables, particularly the grilled asperagus, were perfectly done. Jackie had the equally excellent striped bass. Service was fast, knowledgable and unpretentious. Desserts limited, but...

I have been to Saffron couple years ago and had a good experience. I returned with my fiancé this May and had a horrible, horrible experience. We were 30 minutes late (I called ahead of time, and was told not worry about it, just that the menu maybe limited). We were greeted politely, and given a table for two and... More

It’s great to hear from you since you spoke little or nothing at all, during your time with us. We thank you for your time in posting your review and we understand that as... More

really good tapas, attractive space and outdoor seating option. Good wine list. Didn't eat main course, but food served to others looked very appetizing.

I had hoped someplace called "Mediterranean kitchen" would have a vegetarian option, but no. The whole menu was very meaty including the pasta choices. I asked the server if the chef would do a veg meal or if I had to just choose sides. She suggested a pasta dish that could be made without duck so that's what I chose.... More

This is the third time visiting Saffron in the past several years, and while it has always been great, I have to say this meal was at a pinnacle. Perhaps in part we were sitting at two of the few bar seats facing the chef/cooks. It is something to see, all the organized bustle. Everyone is doing something, every minute.... More

One of Walla Walla's greatest restaurants. The food is perfect, the wine list great, and the staff - the best wait staff in town. They source food ingredients locally and if you're visiting, this restaurant has to be on your go to list!

For the last 3 years we have eaten at Saffron and we have had a nice dinner. We were surprised when the restaurant contacted my husband several months ahead to make a reservation for April when we have generally gone there. We made a reservation for 4 people and when our party shrunk to 2 the week before I called... More

Though this was my first time visiting this establishment, it will NOT be my last!! It has an intimate dining room conducive to a relaxing evening. Then, it was difficult choosing just one entree from the list of seasonal alternatives. I had the sturgeon, and it was perfectly prepared. I will go back again and again to try all the... More
