Reviewed 20 January 2018

Saffron is new; the owner let us know it'd only been around for a few weeks, and so I have a feeling they will move into the "excellent" range as they expand their menu and address some of the noise concerns my spouse and I noticed with the 24 hour gym above them.
1. The food: is delicious. I noticed that the Aloo Gobi a tad sweeter than I usually experience, but this did not detract from my meal. I ordered it with medium intensity on the spice and found this to be an accurate gauge; the food had some heat without losing flavor, which is crucial. The Carrot Halwa is the best I've had- it had a more pudding like texture than other places I've enjoyed this dessert, which really made it special.
2. The price: reasonable. With many restaurants in Coconut Grove overpriced for what they offer, Saffron's prices in relation to portion sizes is spot on.
3. The staff: knowledgeable and friendly. Despite it being quiet when I was there, the staff were attentive enough without it feeling like they were bored. I've eaten at other new restaurants where this privacy/courtesy was not granted, and so I commend the staff.
4. The noise: this is 100% not the restaurants fault. Apparently there is a gym just upstairs that allows people to throw/drop their free weights around. My spouse and I enjoyed a pleasant meal and noticed the noise stopped sometime during our time there, so I am hoping the gym talks with their patrons about proper use of free weights or the restaurant owner addresses this issue (if he has not already).

Overall, Saffron has a lot going for it. I think with a few small tweaks it will be a great fixture of the neighborhood.
