There is something about Saffron's that makes me feel like I am indulging myself. The lighting is nice, surroundings pleasant, staff knows the menu and are courteous, and the food never disappoints. My problem with Saffron's is trying to decide what to have, which of course means I am not having other items which also look delicious. I find that... More

Service is always great, food is impeccable. You should be willing to try something a bit different-ask your server for suggestions. My husband loves the rack of lamb and I had a filet and chicken shish kabob. The pistachio ice cream with lady fingers is to die for!

We were in town for a family event. After dropping our stuff at the hotel, we started walking to a restaurant. While walking I pointed out Saffron's as we passed it. We all agreed that we wanted Persian food. The food was really good. I had a vegetarian dish and we shared an appetizer. It was lovely and delicious.

Their againsignature dish, which is a rack of lamb was special. However make sure to ask the price as it bears no relation price wise to the rest of the menu. Most of... More

We took the recommendation of our server and I cannot tell you what it was but it was delicious. Just a little spice. Service was spot on without hovering. Prices were good and drinks as well

Had an amazing meal . Salmon with dill rice and husband had lamp chops with Saffron rice. The food was fresh and made with every care. We cleansed our palette with a rose, saffron and pistachio ice cream. Imagine skimming the water of rose petals and adding it to make this ice cream. Victor was an amazing waiter. Knew the... More

Last July when I was visiting Louisville, I walked past the Saffron though I didn't eat there. Later when I checked the reviews, I learned that the restaurant had been rated highly. Last week while I was visiting Louisville, I found myself walking past the restaurant again. This time I stopped in and ate. The food was delicious. I had... More

The food at Saffrons was good. Enjoyed the traditional Persian stew. The waitress was incredibly helpful in recommending items on the menu.
