Franklin's BestThere are three reasons this is my favorite restaurant: Excellent food, consistent quality, and friendly wait-staff. It never disappoints.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMover pricedit had been a few years since we been to Saffire's, and it was an impulse for us to choose this restaurant. I had remembered the great atmosphere and good food. but on this trip we were in sticker shock. the food was very good and service great, but too pricey for us to return. especially with limited quantity of side items...5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDate NightMolly was AWESOME. Food was great We will be back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding. NoiseFood was outstanding. Noise level was a little loud for a romantic quite dinner, but that didn't bother us. we just happened to be seated next to the kitchen which added some noise. Drinks were great, service was exceptional, waiter knowledge wonderful, and food was out of this world. TIP- they will substitute the sides, Try the blackened Fish and Grits, with the turnip greens instead of the green beans. The combination will bring you to your knees. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to go back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!Worth the drive from Nashville to Franklin for this gem - we tried several dishes- all were delicious!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMmothers dayI live shrimp and grits and theirs is the best around.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat. BrunchHadn't been in years, creative menu, great food, will be back soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite RestaurantSaffire has been my favorite place for years. It's southern, eccentric, unique, local, and just plain good!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGenerally nice, but be warnedWe have always liked Saffire. Food is interesting, service is good. Just be careful when ordering a salad and asking for chicken or salmon to be added to it. I ordered an $8 entree salad and asked to have salmon added to it. There was another salad with salmon already on it for $14 on the menu. Imagine my surprise when I received the bill and they charged $12 for the salmon, taking my salad price to $20! Shame on me for not asking the price, I guess, but I have never seen a restaurant in this price range charge anything close to $12 to add meat to a salad.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!The piano music was the best part of the ambience, along with the shabby chic atmosphere! Loved the food (peach pork chop was amazing), and the chocolate pecan pie was delicious. Thanks for a great birthday meal!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSaffire is a happening placeSaffire is a happening place in the Factory at Franklin. Using the reservation system was great and when we were stuck in traffic on the way, we called the restaurant and they held our reservation. They offer a nice selection of beer with local, domestic and import options. The menu provides a nice variety of food so you have options if you aren't sure what you are hungry for. The cheese bread they bring is excellent (although I wish they would bring more butter!). I recommend the pork chop with the greens. Not sure what they do to the turnip greens but can't remember ever having any better. I have heard the shrimp and grits are excellent and I look forward to trying that in the future.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Girl's or Guy's Night Out!Food here is always yummie comfort food. Pork chops are great! Pasta was great too! We tried the lobster empanadas were savory. Try them next time you go in!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fabulous. We hadFood was fabulous. We had appetizer of bam bam shrimp. Very tasty with a kick. Then we had the caesar with ham and sorghrum. I had never had anything like it. It was unbelievably good. Then the three entrees were the New York Strip, the special fish dish of the evening Hawaiian fish and grits, and the pork chop. Each dish was unique and unbelievably good.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood & Service were great,Food & Service were great, drinks were a bit pricey but overall the experience was enjoyable.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Find in Franklin, TNWow what a find! The food was amazing - I had the crab cake arugula salad and my friend had the grilled salmon salad. We had to try the onion rings as a starter and those were fantastic too. The cocktail list looked so good I came back a few hours later to try the Saffire martini with their homemade blueberry simple syrup and it was a treat. If you are in the area or visiting this is a must visit place.
The location in The Factory mall is great as well as there are so many intriguing antique and art shops there to look around in before or after your meal.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Saffire last nightWent to Saffire last night with my girlfriend and had an excellent experience. Our server, Patrick, was great: friendly, attentive and helpful answering our questions. The food was excellently prepared. We got the fried oysters appetizer, and then the pork chop and fish of the day for entrees. The pork chop was amazing (and huge)! Overall a great experience, we left very happy.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience and our server,Great experience and our server, Ally, did a fantastic job!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe prime rib was excellentThe prime rib was excellent and HUGE.

Blake & Kayla4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great Service!Saffire was exactly what we were looking for - dinner before a show, wine, cheese, very nice menu selections, and excellent food! This was my first time, and I was very pleased. I also loved the fact that parking was readily available. Service was efficient, and our server was fantastic (Alex). My friend was a vegetarian, and for an appetizer, she suggested a very nice cheese plate (which wasn't on the menu). They had some vegetarian pasta choices for my friend, and my halibut was excellent. Loved this place! It was tucked in the Factory at Franklin (collection of shops and restaurants in a renovated warehouse vibe). I definitely plan to return, and will always consider Saffire a dining option when in Franklin!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe arrived early and neededWe arrived early and needed to add another to our party - no problem with seating us early and adding one more. Great restaurant!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSaffires, a Franklin gem.Another great meal at Saffires. I met girls friends for an early dinner. To my surprise the place was already hopping. We had the fried avocado for and appetizer, it was excellent. Two of us had the pan seared Salmon, another the blackened fish taco and the chicken fried steak. All were wonderful. We ended up staying longer than we expected, it is a good place for a late night drink. There was a music group playing by he bar too.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent unique food!

The food is great as is the atmosphere in the restaurant.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner! The pork chopGreat Dinner! The pork chop was highly recommended by our waiter so we went with that as well as the vegetarian pasta. The pork chop was really to die for...SOO tender and flavorful. Will definitely order that again. Pasta was also good--the sauce was light and fresh. Great service, great food.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took another couple withWe took another couple with us for Easter brunch and all four of us had a great time. Gary3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NiceReally enjoyed my dinner, the food was over the top good!! The only thing was the lighting against the wall across from the Piano Player was a little too dark for us. Other than that it was a great evening. My date was very pleased. Thank You!!

The band is nice, but makes it a little more difficult to hear. Prices are reasonable and the food is absolutely delicious with plenty of creative options. I have not been for lunch, but definitely recommend Saffire for dinner.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't rule it outThis dinner sappire got an A. We went back, because the last time we were there it was just so so. I never rule out anywhere because of one time. I had the Grouper special and it was excellent, my friend had the prime rib, it was hickory flavored and not the typical prime rib,it may have said this on the menu but we missed it, so a bit of a surprise but a good one. It was different and tasty. I will say I had a bottle of red wine and after dinner looking forward to a nice chocolate desert to pair with the rest of my wine and the only choice was a chocolate peacan pie. We ordered it and it did not fit the bill for chocolate with wine. It was very tasty for what it was, but not exactly what I was hoping for.1/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
