The food is delicious, the location is tremendous, the service is average and it is a little pricey.

Great menu with original recipes created from fresh, quality food. The calamari is the best I've had anywhere. The service is always tops and of course, you can't beat the front row views of the Yaquina Bay. Highly recommended.

We came for my wife's birthday. The meal was superb. We had the nightly special of rock fish which was very very flavorful and generous proportion. The wine by the glass was reasonable, the squid appetizer very flavorful and the service good. Plus you are right on the bayfront with gorgeous views.

A grand combination of service, food, and view! Mentioning the service before all else may seem odd, but it really is outstanding -- cheerful, attentive without hovering, and genuinely pleasant. Match that with very good food, a much better than average wine list, and a lovely view. We've eaten at the Saffron Salmon a number of times, and it never... More

We live in Newport so we hardly ever get to visit this great restaurant in the summer months, so winter time allows us to enjoy their good food, great staff and nice view. There are so many good dishes, had to recommend one to you. Food is nicely presented, but not over stuffy. Ample portions so you aren't going to... More

Where SW Bay Street and SW Bay Blvd converge in Newport, OR, the "Saffron Salmon" restaurant overlooks Yaquina Bay from the end of Bay Street Pier. The chef specializes in fresh seafood prepared expertly and the friendly wait staff are accommodating without being intrusive. If fish is not what you crave, there are other selections (portabella mushroom sandwich, hamburger) to... More
