    Getting together with friends was perfect at Saffron! We dined with 10, the service was great, and the food was amazing! The server guided us through the menu and pointed out favorites. We were able to order at our own desired spice! I will definitely be back with my family!

    Wow, what a wonderful experience at Saffron! From the moment we walked in we felt welcomed into a special place. The ambiance was classy, busy crowd for a Friday evening but we made reservations and were seated right away. The server was extremely friendly, and the food was over the moon. We started with a Mumbai cocktail which was a spin on a Manhattan and a gin martini made with Jin Jiji Indian gin. Both were so great we had a second round. We then shared ground beef samosas and naan bread (best simosas I’ve ever had), then ordered lamb biranyi and lamb vindaloo. Absolutely delicious. Finished the evening with a delicious sample of three flavors of ice cream. Highly recommend Saffron, we will be back!

    The food was impeccable --I've been craving an encore ever since. Our server was friendly and professional without hovering or interrupting our conversation. Wine selection was impressive and included nice wines at a reasonable price as well as higher end options. The décor is really beautiful--the only notes I have are: softer lighting at night would make everything feel sexier and more special; and bar code menus force diners to be on their phones instead of engaging with each other, the server, the atmosphere. I had trouble connecting with the wifi, so the first 15 minutes after I sat down, I felt like I was at a meeting, not a nice dinner out with friends. When the check came, it was also electronic so had to be paid whilst our server was standing right there, which was awkward and felt rushed. I'm 💯 for paperless, but I think the execution needs to be workshopped to make the first and last impressions of an otherwise fabulous dining experience more seemless. I truly loved Saffron, though, and can't wait to return.

    Staff was very cheerful and efficient. My husband didn’t care for the salad dressing and the only option is the house dressing. The soup was good, albeit a bit spicier than I would like for Mulligatawny. The entrees were delicious. There are three options for spiciness. I had medium and just be aware that by many it would have been consider too spicy.

    Always a wonderful experience! I do have to say I’m adjusting to the window tables though. I always liked the windows because you got the views of the aksarben night life and the pleasures of watching the restaurant in action.. Just my opinion, I do love the new ceiling lights and the new chairs are wonderful. Thanks for always making it special.

    This is our second time dining here and for being New Year’s Eve, we appreciated how relaxing and enjoyable everything was. Typically we don’t like to go out to eat on New Year’s Eve because it can be loud and the service lacking, but that wasn’t the case here at all. Everything was perfect and the food is just outstanding!

    We arrived at our reservation time (7:15). Our table was not ready, had to wait a while to be seated. Server greeted us and gave us water and menus, never returned. We left at 7:40 without ordering anything. We felt 25 minutes was MORE than enough time to at least have a drink or appetizer order placed. I love Indian food, and have previously had a good experience at Saffron, but I may have to reconsider coming here in the future.

    Drinks are a little pricy. Food was good but could use a little better description for people that have little to no knowledge of Indian food. Maybe a little legend on the menu to break down what some things are?

    I have been wanting to try this place for sometime now and it did not disappoint. I had made a reservation for outside seating, but it was chilly that night and they got us seated immediately inside. The waitress was attentive and sweet. The food was AMAZING and not over done with flare…perfect. 10/10 would recommend.
