My co-worker and I were headed to one of our anual networking events and decided to have dinner at the Saffire first. For the appetizer we ordered the bang bang shrimp, and it was delicious. For dinner I had the creole shrimp and grits which were good, however, the sauce did overpower the shrimp and grits making it somewhat soupy.... More

Located inside the factory, this restaurant has always had great food. They also have some very interest adult beverages . The atmosphere is rustic/industrial and prices are within the normal range for upscale eateries.

Thank you for treating our group of nine like family. Great bang bang shrimp. The food was not only beautiful but delicious too. Great live music for a Saturday night. Loved the shrimp and grits.

We went to dinner at Saffire last evening for the first time in several years. Our waiter (Richard) was great and very friendly. We both started off with oysters which were very tasty. My wife had the pork chop and I had the ribeye....... Both were very good. Portions were ample and we ended up taking some of both meals... More

My family loves this restaurant. The children's menu is very inexpensive. The food is always wonderful and the staff is very friendly and always provides excellent service. Scott was our server last time we went and he was awesome!

Had dinner there, tonight, with some friends. A miserable serving of house wine $11.00. Two of us had " the chicken fried chicken", supposedly with macaroni and cheese and greens. A very large, semi tough chicken breast fried (touted as the best chicken) penne with a goopy sauce and greens that were horrible. Orleans pasta, okay and shrimp and grits,... More

Safire seems to appeal to folks who like poor acoustics and poor food and poor service. I guess it fits with the "new" franklin hipsters but this place is seriously over rated. Fried food is greasy and the staff is pretty indifferent to making things better

Followed the wife to the Factory antique stores where this restaurant is located. Away from hot, crowded downtown Franklin and delicious.

We went with friends as two couples and had some awesome service and the food was pretty spectacular too - sat out in the patio area the staff catered for every need - they knew shut the menu dishes inside out and gave full descriptions to what we may or may not choose. The old factory surroundings gave the restaurant... More
