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

Went here during Dickens Christmas and got seated immediately. Friendly staff and speedy service. Best chicken-fried chicken I've ever had! Definitely returning one day.

Saffire is in The Factory, about a mile outside of the center of the main part of town. The Factory is a refurbished stove factory that is an up and coming (still a little funky) retail, restaurant center. Saffire is a great restaurant with southern cuisine with a beautiful bar. It is a great place to eat on a Wednesday... More

This restaurant is a neat place to maybe go at least once but I wouldn't bother to go back.They have a small menu that's way over priced for what they offer and the food wasn't anything special. I had the Fried Chicken dinner with Mac and Cheese and greens. It wasn't bad but again nothing to write home about. Nice... More

I went here for brunch with my husband and I got the chicken and waffles. It was my first time trying chicken and waffles and it got me hooked, it was amazing!
