Melon gazpacho, sounded a little "odd" especially when our server stated it features diced Walla Walla sweet onions.....excellent, and the experience went up from there! Makes a soul want to visit Walla Walla more often.

Saffron came highly recommended by locals, and we were glad we had followed their advice. We had a very enjoyable evening dining at this restaurant. Saffron is very small, and consequently it was somewhat crowded and difficult to get a reservation--even on a Tuesday night. We shared "the counter" with another couple. It was actually a great place to sit;... More

We ate here six years ago and had high hopes that the quality had remained high. We were pleased to find out that it has indeed remained so. Our dinner was delicious from top to bottom. Our wait person was charming, attentive, and helpful. We both had the steak from the menu (rather than a special for the evening). It... More

Showed up on time, gave the owner our name and party of 2 and was told that we did not have a reservation, that we probably made the reservation at another restaurant (not a chance!) and would seat us only if another table did not arrive in 3 minutes. Besides being embarrassed by this woman owner, she told us we... More

Wonderful food place recommended to us by a former resident of Walla Walla. This person also suggested a reservation as Saffron is both small and well discovered by many as a Mediterranean restaurant not to be forgotten. We had fried peppers and flatbread to start before launching into two other offerings too complex and delicious to describe in detail. If... More

As a destination inn and restaurant owner, I am a foodie who enjoys great food in a great setting. Saffron NEVER disappoints. I am always amazed at what quality of restaurants generally are found in such a small area as Walla Walla, but I suspect we have the wine industry to thank for that!! (And, I do:-) I travel all...

Great service, magical ambiance and terrific food. We ordered a special of flash fried peppers that were killer, the Blood Orange salad was fantastic and I had one of their special flat bread dishes. All tremendously flavorful. My husband ordered a calamari pasta dish that was a bit disappointing (little seafood present) and overpriced but that wouldn't stop us from... More

This is a very casual restaurant downtown but the food is superb! My husband and I sat at the bar (wooden seats - O.K., not my fav), so we had access to the manager and her tips. The fresh, tiny green peppers that had just arrived from a local farmer were recommended; sauteed in olive oit and laced with salt,... More

I always try to look at the terrible reviews for an establishment, but did not have a chance to do so this time around. The big complaints seem to be with the haughty service provided to some visitors. We were perhaps lucky, but the service was very good during our visit. The waiter was friendly and helpful in selecting our... More

Great food, outstanding service, can't wait for next visit. The halibut with clams was perfectly cooked, my dinner partner kept trying for more tastes! We enjoyed heirloom tomato salad and onion appetizer, each was large enough to share easily. His chicken was moist and tender. Too full for desert--although the choices were plentiful.
