Consistently excellent food and service at the Saffron Brasserie; it has become a regular place to treat myself, family and friends. The prices are very good value especially for the quality of the food and the tables are always immaculately clean with fresh linen.

I've been here a couple of times recently and both were bad experiences. The food is oily and leaves a horrible after taste. After I asked for a couple more minutes to look at the menu, the waiters appeared to completely abandon the dining area...More
