Rating system needs a six for this place. Salmon must have just got off the boat. Grandson, burger judge extraordinary, declared the lamb one the best of his 30 year life. Saffron will be a standard stop on our annual trip.

First time here, good service and view. Food was ok, had the calamari which was different, beet salad fresh, rissoto was not done well...under cooked. Seafood stew very peppery but no REAL flavor and over cooked fish, no comparison to the jong bong that use to be at noodle cafe next door. Wil try somewhere else next time.

Saffron Salmon is easily overlooked in it's out of the way spot at the West end of the Newport Bay Front. But, if you should take the time to find it, you won't regret it. We love their calamari and crab cakes, their fish and chips and Salmon. The chowder is delicious, and salads are fresh and satisfying. I especially... More

Saffron Salmon was a real find. The place is small, but so light and inviting and right on the harbor in Newport. We had a great table by the window with sea lions swimming by the window! The menu was not overly complicated which was great. A limited amount of well prepared selections. The flash fried brussel sprouts and kale... More

We had heard such good things about the restaurant. We usually go to Local Ocean, but wanted to see for ourselves. It's small and looks right out over Yaquina Bay. Sea lions swim by right below you. Now the food: some of best we've eaten anywhere. I had Alaskan halibut over risotto with amazing shrimp, squid & chopped mussels in... More

Food was hands down one of the best meals we have ever had! My seafood linguine was filled with fresh yummy chunks of seafood. Husband had the lamb which was grilled perfectly. Service outstanding. Pricey but will return!

Dependably great food, service and ambience. Probably my favorite restaurant in Newport. Typically the menu features unique versions of classic dishes, composed from locally-sourced seafood, meats, and veggies. Prices are comparabe

I have never been disappointed eating here. I usually go for seafood, which is always fresh and prepared perfectly. The service is good, and you can't beat the harbor view.

We tried this place for lunch, on recommendations from friends. Wonderful setting, excellent service, but the food didn't seem particularly special Our panko fish and chips were just OK -- nothing to get excited about. Not sure we'd bother dining there again.
