The atmosphere is super neat in the factory. Cool copper bar and fun bartender. Creative cocktails. The Lion in Winter is a must try beverage. All of the food is delicious. The burger and shrimp were our top favorite.

Our new Franklin favorite. Food was outstanding. My husband said the gumbo was the best he EVER had. My fish was cooked perfectly and even though there was a bit too much 'lentil broth" making the fish a bit more "wet" than my taste, I'm truly splitting hairs on that comment, because I would have the dish again. My husband's... More

I was disheartened to have an extended stay in the Franklin area, only to find big-name chains everywhere within a 5 mile radius of my hotel. Bummer! I was very pleased to discover the Factory of Franklin during my last day - and finding Saffire in the middle of the afternoon was a great treat. I did a quick search... More

We went to Saffire this past Saturday night and had a pleasant experience. It has a nice atmosphere, very good service and the food good. My husband ordered the gumbo and I had the Caesar salad that had molasses drizzled on it- thought that would be much better than it actually was- not bad, just different.For entrees- my husband got...

We were able to book a reservation for 4 at Saffire on New Year's Eve. With it being a very reasonable $65 prix fixe, I wondered if they would take the opportunity to offer less expensive items on their menu, or perhaps the quality would suffer. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised. We started out with an amuse... More

We dined here on a Thursday night. Made reservations through OpenTable. Were seated as soon as we arrived. This is a fun/nice atmosphere restaurant in the Factory at Franklin. There was a pianist playing while we were there and the bar area had a nice crowd. Everyone loved their entrée -- the filet mignon was delicious -- the slab of... More

The staff at Saffire were great! We had a corporate event with over 100 people and we heard nothing but good things about the food and the attentiveness of the staff! The steak was delicious! Perfectly prepared medium-well over a bed of mashed potatoes and asparagus! The atmosphere and ambiance of the place was relaxing and fun. Certainly a place... More

We have visited Saffire in the Factory at Franklin several times and for various reasons - always a lovely meal prepared by an expert chef and staff. Our first experience was a "date night" dinner where we went all out and had several courses. We went with our friendly server's suggestion and had the fried avocado appetizer - so good!... More
