On hearing the name of the restaurant I thought East Indian? Looking at the reviews I didn't get a sense of the restaurant, other than it had a great view of the Yaquina Bay. Several people in town highly recommended Saffron Salmon, in particular, citing...More

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.

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

It is a small place. Service was ok and the food was mediocre. So I would suggest eating somewhere else if you are looking for a great food and a fun experience.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Newport, OR! I love their platter that has Salmon, clam chowder, salad and crab cake! They also have bottled cokes, great desserts and a great view of folks crabbing, fishing boats and the bridge. Small, intimate restaurant....More

Excellent wine by the glass. Calamari appy great with a light coating and a bit of chili bite. Enjoy the chowder and if you like lamb get the rack.

It depends. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy with amazing views and a small number of tables in a small room. The staff is very kid friendly; however, this is an upscale linen and cloth napkins restaurant. Your kids... More

Our corkage fee is $15.00 and only ask that the wine you bring in isn't something we already carry. Hope to see you soon.
