My favorite is the roasted beet salad, pairs great with a crisp white wine. The food is expertly prepared and presented. The staff was helpful and friendly. The menu is limited but the food is delicious.

We made reservations to dine at Saffron Salmon but did not go. We were going to be about 2 minutes late for our 8:30 reservation (last seating). The woman we spoke to over the phone was quite rude about it and seemed very unwelcoming. Oh well, we ate at Georgie's instead and had a lovely meal with excellent service. The... More

We were visiting Newport for the first time so we didn't know where to eat. This restaurant came up in Tripadvisor and sounded like one we would like. We decided to try it. It's a small place with an ocean/bay view. I recommend making reservations. I ordered the salmon with fingerling potatoes and assorted vegetables. We started off with the... More

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, while staying the night in Newport, we really wanted to dine here, but arrived in town a few minutes too late. When we inquired, the waitress said she could serve us dessert though, which we decided to do. It was delicious! There was an excellent view of the bay to go along with dessert. Saffron Salmon...

This place is great; it's modern looking, clean, and has an ocean view. They also play some great music. We ordered Salmon sandwiches and clam chowder with Asian slaw. The woman who owns the place was our waitress, she was very hospitable and kept the drinks filled. Since we were starving, she gave us a bowl of mixed nuts to... More

Do yourself a favor and go here for a perfect meal. I have been here many times when living in South Beach, Oregon. We sadly moved away a few years ago but we still have to eat here whenever we go back for a visit. Anything you order is great and the view is the best. Do try the clam... More

The food is out of the world. The Pacific cod was cooked perfectly. Their clam chowder is the best on the bay front. Love the vibe and the energy of this place. The staff is wonderful, helpful and knowledgeable. By far our best meal in newport!

Friendly service, excellent view of the bay and very good food. The seafood stew is wonderful! We don't recommend the House Pinot.

The atmosphere at Saffron Salmon is unique and unprecedented. Northwest artists' work are available for sale on the walls, and the view is not just beautiful, if you time it right you can see that which makes this working port's character: sea vessels coming inland under the Newport bay with fresh fish from the ocean. It's relaxing and you feel... More

Ok, we like to visit local places to eat wherever we go anywhere, and I must say, this was hands down the best meal we have had along the Oregon coast! It was fresh, local, and perfectly seasoned. We had the special which was cod, the rib eye steak, the salmon, and the linguini and prawns. All exceeded our expectations.... More
