I’ve had the pleasure of dining at Saffron Salmon several times over the years for lunch and dinner, and it is consistently a favorite of mine. Very small, and intimate. Don’t miss it!

The cost of the dinner was justified by the great view. The food was well prepared and presented beautifully.

Their Salmon Spinach Salad was the best I have ever had. And I really enjoyed their marionberry cobbler.

The food here is excellent, and the prices reflect that fact. Kudos to the chef. However, the service is somewhat snooty and the place has the ambiance of a school cafeteria. Too many tables, too little space. Very uncomfortable.

First time to eat here, so no expectation. The view was outstanding. Boat going and coming, sea lions playing in the harbor made the views entertaining, but peaceful. The service was good and the wait for our food was short. (Or did it just feel...More

The Asian slaw was drenched in too much vinegar, but was good when rescued from the vinegar. Crab cakes were too "cakey" and not enough "crabby". The seafood stew could have been zestier, and lacked shellfish. The chocolate cheese cake was great. Wine selection only...More
