Great breakfast but pricey. Buffet was great and they had some good beers on tap. Did not eat dinner there but looks good.

Located in the Marriott Hotel near downtown Charleston. This would not be a person's number 1 choice if not staying at the hotel, but it was for us this particular night. We were staying in a nearby hotel that did not offer dining in, so this was a 2 minute drive away. For a downtown restaurant you don't need to fight for parking or find a spot 5 blocks away, parking is ample and we were at our table 30-seconds from arrival.

The restaurant was tucked away in a romantic and quite part of the hotel. Way to go is the 3 for $30. Appetizer, entree and dessert for $30 is a GREAT deal. Wine by the glass is actually a half-carafe. Service was very attentive, Russell did a great job for us w/out being intrusive.

1st round of bread was very crisp and fresh, can't say that about 2nd round (we are big bread eaters and asked for 2nds)... That is about the only detraction. Would be a good place due to their excellent acoustics for parties of 4 or more. Was the FIRST restaurant in over 6 months that we have eaten that we can actually HEAR a conversation at ''normal'' inside voices. Most other places are overly LOUD.

On the Saleeby Scale: 8/10

I had the coob salad which was only 9 dollars and came with jalapeno poppers instead of croutons and my husband the honey peach wings which he enjoyed very much.

Met friends for a drink and quick dinner at Saffire as they were in town for a quick overnight visit and it was convenient to meet there. With so many other options in Charleston, Saffire would not be a top choice but it was decent. My husband had a burger which he described as good. I had a flatbread specialty pizza that wasn't all that special. The atmosphere feels just a little too dark to be festive; I've always wondered why Marriott hasn't done anything to brighten things up. Otherwise the food is decent and the service is good.

I actually went to the Marriott to check out the terrace bar on the third floor...which was spectactular. Great view of the Ashley River, good beverage selection and nice service. I decided on Saffire at the last minute and made a great decision. The design of the entire hotel is spectacular, with great open spaces and colors. The restaurant is no exception. The quality of the service and food matched the beauty of the facility...both were spot on. The menu has great variety and my salmon entree was very unique in its mix of flavors. It will be tough for this restaurant to stand out in a city of great dining options, and that is too bad. I will definitely try it again.
