    The food is amazing as always. The tables along the windows are very close together, to the point it almost felt communal. Our server was less attentive than our neighbors table.

    Saffron is one of our favorite places. Everyone is so nice and attentive. If you are unfamiliar with the food, all you have to do is ask and they will tell you what is in it and make a recommendation if you like. The food is very flavorful and plentiful!

    Really good food. Service less than spectacular for a restaurant that automatically includes 20% gratuities for groups of five or more. Don’t mind the gratuities just make sure the service is up to speed which it was not.

    We really liked our waitress who made excellent suggestions and had a very nice manner. However, we arrived at 8:05pm and were finally checked out at 10:15pm. It was New Years Eve, a busy night, but most of the dining room cleared out by 9pm. The food and drinks were very good, but our waitress could have made more money if she would have been more attentive.

    Wonderfully accommodating for a party of 10 ( with 3 different checks!!). Service great considering how packed they were with large groups on NYE. My ONLY quibble is with the noise level. We were in the side room where all the noisy, large NYE groups were seated and most of the tables were very, very loud. No one’s fault but I will only eat in the main room Winter) or the outside patio (summer). Food was really, really good.

If you’re looking for a nice date night spot or a place to meet up with friends Saffron should be at the top of your list! I dream about my chicken masala every night and can’t wait to go back! 11/10

    The Salmon Buhna was delicious! I also had a Coconut Mojito that was really good. The veg samosas weren't my favorite. The service was a bit awkward. It's a beautiful space! I love all of the plants! It gets a little loud when the dining room is full. Overall I was really pleased! I'll definitely be back!

    Selected a cozy nook on the reservation, the waitress sat us in between tables. Beer was served in a wine glass and extremely flat, ended up with a fly in it and the waitress didn’t mention anything or ask if we needed another one. As the food came out the waitress put the food down on the other side of the table so we had to transfer it each time, not a big issue but just weird. Chicken Kadai was chicken thigh and had load of fat in it, rice was overcooked and chicken korma had no flavor. Server was nice, restaurant is nice, food is poor.

    Unbelievably, they have no artificial sweetener for iced tea for diabetics. We waited for a long time and what was brought was some kind of syrup, hardly sugar-free. It’s not a show-stopper and the food is very tasty. I put some Splenda in my purse for future visits.

    We sat outside so evaluating the noise level is relative. We were seated promptly and graciously, waiting only a minute or two for our server to bring menus. She explained food items we asked about and was very pleasant. Once our generous portions of food arrived she checked back regularly but was not obtrusive in the least. It was our first visit and we intend to return.
