“Excellent atmosphere, Top notch service, and definitely a delicious approach on seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

This is a lovely restaurant that sits right on the bayfront. The atmosphere was wonderful, not too noisy, and we enjoyed watching the people outside the restaurant wrestle with the crab they caught. The restaurant is very cramped though, so make a reservation! The food was delicious and was elaborately served in a creative but elegant design. I ordered the Fish and Chips which were served with asian coleslaw and well seasoned vegetables. The waitstaff was warm and friendly and served to the best of their abilities. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and this was definitely the best meal I've had on the Oregon Coast!

“Delightful, good views---seats only 46 folks, so book!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Absolutely delicious food, with an appropriate emphasis on seafood. Each plate was attractively styled, and the portions were large without being ridiculous. Like so many places on the Oregon coast, they strive to be local and sustainable. Great, relaxed (but never maddeningly slow)
service. A wonderful meal for three, topped off by a splendid warm Marionberry Cobbler a la
mode!

“Salmon Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Saffron Salmon is a nice place with a beautiful Sea view. It is less crowded than some other places in Newport. The food was delicious. A fresh caught Chinook salmon. We had a relaxed Dinner with a beautiful view. The service was very friendly. Finally we finished with a nice desert.

“pricey but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

I liked being right on the bay kitchy front and the view of the harbor. Staff attitudes were a bit on the upscale side, not like the usual casual atmosphere in this area. The food was fine, but didn't make me want to return any time soon.
