The bold flavors of Saffire's seasonally inspired menu reflect a belief in "the cuisine of today," healthy, eclectic, imaginative, unrestricted by ethnic boundaries...always evolving. Our chef elevates fresh, organic, carefully chosen ingredients above mere quality...to culinary artistry. Each meal is complimented by superb selections of wine. The atmosphere at Saffire restaurant and lounge is casually sophisticated, yet warm and welcoming.

Family came here for restaurant week and my dad's birthday our server was I think Abby, she was very sweet and did a good job. The ambience was nice for a hotel restaurant. We had a half booth half table and it was very comfy. Great options for dinner! I had a pecan glazed chicken with peaches and asparagus. All of it was Deeeeeelliiicciouuussss. I also had tomato soup which was thick and yummy with a little balsamic. And the ceasar salad was light and well tossed. Not doused. My dad had a yummy mushroom ravioli. For dessert we split the chocolate torte. Tastes like rich fudge. Creme brulee was tasty but I wanted a little more vanilla. I still ate it all. Mmmmm. And the ricotta cheesecake with a very very good crumb cake crust. To die for.
Great service from server and hostess. Very quiet when we went. And fair priced for this kind of restaurant! I worked in one similar. I'll go again for sure :)

Sadly Underwhelming. Despite the pleasant friendly personality of our waiter, service was painfully slow with 20+ minute wait between courses. Food was just fair, at best- none of my 5 companions felt delighted by either the menu or the food itself. Bartender was annoyed by simple requests. Overall, for a Marriott, I was really disappointed.

Impression: Lacked both Southern Hospitality and Quality

Recommendation: Go Elsewhere.

We were visiting from out of town and looking for a nearby restaurant and found Saffire. At the time we didn't know it was a restaurant inside the Marriott hotel. Upon arrival, parking was easy. The restaurant is nicely appointed and quiet and pleasant. Our server, Brian, was pleasant and attentive. Our group ordered a wide range of items and all were really good. Great drink variety at the bar and bar service was quick. Prices were typical for a hotel restaurant; not a bargain but not over the top. Overall a great experience.

The food and service were both fantastic. Definitely a restaurant I'd visit again.

My omelet was good but the so-called breakfast hash my husband had was terrible. Service was quite slow--when we asked about our food, our waitress responded that several meals were ahead of ours, instead of saying I will go check and see if I can expedite, or something equally polite and helpful. So we would not recommend this restaurant. The description should also mention that it is a hotel restaurant.

Located in the Marriott Charleston, it is so convenient for guests at the hotel. The food was excellent and prices reasonable. My husband had the shrimp and grits, which he had at numerous other restaurants. He said this was the best of any.

I was in town for a race, this restaurant is located in a hotel close to mine, it was getting late, I could walk to it , so I went. The buffet was obviously geared towards the runners in town with pasta. Zero proteins. I didn't realize that until after we ordered. Nothing of note or impressive. Service was lacking, my water was never refilled, I had to take my boyfriends as our waiter never fulfilled my request to fill up my empty glass when he came by. The hotel and roof top bar are amazing but this is a one and done visit for me. It's worth the $7 Uber ride to downtown if you are staying in the hotel attached to this place.

Our server Russel was very nice, professional, and helpful. The food was higher-end quality hotel restaurant food. No complaints. Sandwiches were good, and the flat bread pizzas were outstanding.

Came here when visiting Charleston, South Carolina on Christmas day. They had a prefix dinner menu which was a bit too much food. They had a smaller bar menu that they allowed us to order from which was great. Our waitress/bartender was super nice.

Being in the area on a vacation, the idea of reservations was great and we were received with friendliness and treated great. The food was awesome and the atmosphere was very relaxing.

My family and I ate here for Mother's Day, we had a group of 5 adults, 2 children and a baby. We were charged an automatic 20% gratuity, which okay we could live with that. However, we were also charged a 20% "service fee" on top of that! My son's salad was forgotten during the meal, as well as my daughter's drink. I am no cheapskate and I always tip well for good service, but they definitely did not earn that much gratuity along with a service fee.

Food was decent, nothing spectacular, and service was lacking.

Very very attentive service and a stop by the manager. For 4 of us, the flatbread was a hit, perfectly cooked pork tenderloin and great gnocchi. The portions were good size and we all left full. The misses in our minds were the bruschetta and the potato skins. Bruschetta with Tapenade, Reggiano was ok and the potato of potato skins was still frozen in the middle.

As a Charleston local, this restaurant was very disappointing. All of the food was just okay. Nothing special or memorable. I had blackened shrimp on my salad and my mouth was on fire. There are so many amazing restaurants in Charleston. This is not one of them.
