We were so excited to visit Saffron but were so disappointed in the service, food, and cost. First, bring your platinum card for this place is expensive for what you get. The concept is great. The quality of the food is good. The portions are small. The wine is expensive, and go with your decision and do not be up-sold... More

Sadly another place in Walla Walla that didn't match the hype. The ambience and service were good but the lamb, octopus and salmon were all over cooked and grilled peach salad description on the menu didn't quite match the real thing. The menu and service were good; execution was off.

My wife and I arrived to a greeting of "have we saved a place for you?" We didn't have reservations but were offered a table or outside seating. We ate outside but there is very little traffic. The food was superb... fresh and perfect preparation. Hard to believe we were in small town Washington state as it easily compared favorably... More

A local said she eats here often because the food is so good. So we had to try it. We made reservations and the place was packed by 7:30pm. There was just two of us and we didn't have an issue with the service at all. The Peach & Burrata Salad was our favorite salad we ate all week. From... More

Four of us were on a ten-day road trip through Idaho and Washington. Our dinner at this lovely restaurant was by far the best meal of our entire trip! For starters, the house made bread is delicious and is served with flavored butters. My husband and I shared the radish/pea salad as our first course and the Tagine as our... More

The discrepancy between food preparation and service + ambience could not be more drastic. On a recent Friday evening we called to make a reservation for 2 and were told that the earliest availability was at 7:45 on the counter or a table at 8:30 pm, so we picked the counter having eaten at a bar counter in many restaurants...

Stopped by Saffron right at opening time on a Saturday afternoon. The octopus, beef cheeks, and pea & radish salad were perfect. But it was topped by the Flatbread dessert with homemade custard, blackberries, and fresh peaches that was superb. Very friendly service completed a great lunch.

I would highly recommend this restaurant while visiting Walla Walla. The food and service were great. It's within easy walking distance from the Marcus Whitman hotel. Make sure you make a reservation!

We arrived 5-10 min early for our reservation, selected outside seating ("first come, first served"). We then waited 10 min to receive a menu and another 10 min before water and silverware. Were asked for our order at ~20 min after being seated: cocktail, bottle of wine, and food orders. Another 20 min passed. Finally, a full 45 min after... More
