    Mother's Day celebration. The food was alright, the ambiance was very nice and the location very convenient. Some of the dishes weren't great but not bad either. My favorite was the papaya salad yum!

    So I went back, my first experience was, meah. This time everything I didn’t like, I liked! First my servers appearance attractive (not like cute but attractive) she was clean and polished and but effort into her looks so I felt my food was safe with her because she cares about hygiene! She also made suggestions, I asked for no ice cause my teeth are sensitive but I asked for a straw and all was well. Food was tasty only thing is the salad at the bottom gets soggy in the dressing but I literally ate every bit because it was so good my noodles were not crunchy this time, perfect! I loved my server and the manager is ALWAYS ON POINT from attitude to looks and performance. My sushi was so good but like last time it tasted good so consistently wins my trust. I think when I had the dry larbb last time it was just a bad day. I feel confident in trying something new when I go back. Its not L.A. but it’s my second favorite thai spot since moving to a small city.

    My first time there and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and restaurant. The food was fresh and they were agreeable to modifying as I wished. For example, I wanted the egg left out of the fried rice and it was no problem. Service was prompt and friendly. I actually had enough left over for another meal. The pineapple fried rice was my choice and pad Thai my husband's. Both were worth the trip!

    Delicious sushi, tuna poke, seagreen salad, and pork tonkatsu. Menu is varied and it is hard to decide what to order! The chef added brown rice and I added the seaweed, to make the tuna poke into a poke bowl...that was a tasty accommodation! Excellent server, too.

    I love this restaurant. The food and service is always great. That having been said, though, sometimes the dishes are too spicy for me. I can order the same dish on different nights, and the heat can vary so much that I cannot eat the dish. Admittedly, I am a lightweight when it comes to hot spices, so if you love spicy Asian food, this is a win-win. We are not sushi eaters, we always order the thai dishes, but I have taken friends that are, and they say they love it. Overall, the quality of this restaurant is great. My husband and I eat there often.

    This was a comfortable talking ambiance for 8 friends celebrating 2 birthday (free dessert for them). The service was friendly, helpful and kept us on time without rushing through our meal of appetizers (toast, lettuce wraps), wine, main course (Asian with rice or noodles) and dessert (with exchange of gifts). Of course, it was Thursday and pleasantly full but not over crowded. Highly recommend.

    Restaurant was a little noisy but it was festive people. Our table was ready when we arrived. Sam was our waiter and was good. I ordered shrimp asparagus and it was very good. My date ordered the teriyaki glazed salmon. It was overcooks and neither the salmon or veggies had any flavor at all, even after he poured the extra sauce on. My creme brûlée was very good.

    We have often enjoyed Bistro Saffron. Tonight, the restaurant was full and the entire staff was up to the occasion. While always very good, the experience this evening, on New Year’s Eve, was truly exceptional. My wife and I both had one of the specials which featured salmon, shrimp, rice and vegetables in a superb, perfectly spicy green curry sauce. Thank you for making this Nee Year’s Eve one to remember!

    The food was great as usual. The service was good too. The only thing they have changed is they now have paper napkins. For the type of dining experience and the cost of the food. I think they should have kept the cloth napkins. I know I sound picky, but when you spend $175.00 for a table of 4 in Southeast Missouri, I think cloth napkins should be a given. Thanks

    We were in the mood for great sushi and Bistro Saffron has it under the capable design of Paula. Paula creates amazing sushi rolls not on the menu that will leave you wondering why you ever settled for California rolls. She asked us if we liked shrimp (we do) and how many rolls we wanted. We then allowed her to surprise us. The sushi most definitely did not disappoint!

    Our party of 7 secured reservations through Open Table. We arrived promptly for our reservation and we were seated immediately. Our waitress was professional, courteous and knowledgeable. We started off with 2 orders of Saffron Toast (which our waitress recommended) for an appetizer. The bread is crusty with a sweet taste, the cucumber relish added on top gives the toast a nice spice level. The consensus of the group was the items we all ordered were tasty but we all longed for more flavor and seasoning. We ordered a variety of menu items including Pan Stemmed Dumplings (I was told this item tastes more like fried dumplings and not the stemmed kind she was hoping for but still tasty). Also ordered was Chef's Fried Rice (good but bland). 2 orders of lettuce wraps (good but bland). Salad with Ginger Dressing (delicious). 2 orders of Eclipse Sushi Rolls (delicious). Octopus Salad Sashimi (delicious nice flavor level). Child's portion of fried rice. 2 Orders of Miso Soup (average Miso Soup, still yummy). We did not order dessert. 5 stars for the staff they are wonderful. 5 stars for atmosphere. 3.5 stars for the food (well prepared but a few items were just too bland to be memorable). Overall, I would still go again and recommend Bistro Saffron.
