“You're in for a treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Every aspect of our visit to the Saffron restaurant was incredible. The service was top notch and personal. The food was some of the best we have ever had. It is fresh and exquisitely prepared. The menu changes periodically with the availability of foods. We had numerous appetizers but the octopus was incredible and melted in our mouths. The pork belly flatbread was also incredible. Our entrees were amazing. Like I said the menu changes often but I'm confident that anything they prepare would be amazing. The seating is limited so advanced reservations are a must. Don't forget dessert as they are definitely worth trying out. Great selection of beverages.
We will definitely go there again when we are in town.

“Nice suprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Did not have a reservation it was busy still managed a couple of seats at the bar . The owner and chef ran a nice clean kitchen and his wife kept an interesting array of local wines coming . The food was local and inovative , and all dishes were well done .

“Great variations of food, wonderful fun was had by all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

We had heard about this place a couple of years ago and never made it until now, what a great find. Such interesting dishes and choices were hard for our group of five. We loved everything, plus the wine the waiter suggested was perfect. Dinner was relaxed, the evening was wonderful. Keep an open taste bud when eating here as it is so interesting and flavorful and like nothing anywhere else. I will be back next visit to Walla Walla. Reservations are a must, do not arrive without them. And if you are not going to attend call and cancel, this place is small which makes it work so well.

“Great things come in small packages!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Though small in size, Saffron offers an incredible menu filled with inspired dishes. I chose the hanger steak which was cooked perfectly and my wife selected the calamari fettuccine which was also quite good! In our opinion, it was the finest meal we ate all week.

“Loved everything about it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

They had us at "Mediterranean." It sounded perfect after a day spent driving the backroads around Walla Walla, and we weren't disappointed. We arrived early for our reservation, and were given a table along the wall. The place is small; make sure you make a reservation!

We both ordered a lamb special, and a grilled asparagus appetizer that was incredible (I'll never steam asparagus again!). We asked our excellent server for a wine recommendation, and were impressed that she didn't rattle off the expensive bottles. Instead, she suggested a very good red blend that was $25. We wrapped up our meal with dessert.

Everything was excellent, from atmosphere to service to quality of food. We will definitely come back again.
