This place is great; it's modern looking, clean, and has an ocean view. They also play some great music. We ordered Salmon sandwiches and clam chowder with Asian slaw. The woman who owns the place was our waitress, she was very hospitable and kept the drinks filled. Since we were starving, she gave us a bowl of mixed nuts to munch on while we waited. The salmon was so fresh and flavorful and the clam chowder was some of the best I have ever had. The asian slaw was a nice touch too. Plus they have bottled sodas and wine. If you go here you must try the chowder!

Do yourself a favor and go here for a perfect meal. I have been here many times when living in South Beach, Oregon. We sadly moved away a few years ago but we still have to eat here whenever we go back for a visit. Anything you order is great and the view is the best. Do try the clam chowder, you won't be disappointed.

The food is out of the world. The Pacific cod was cooked perfectly. Their clam chowder is the best on the bay front. Love the vibe and the energy of this place. The staff is wonderful, helpful and knowledgeable.
By far our best meal in newport!

Friendly service, excellent view of the bay and very good food. The seafood stew is wonderful! We don't recommend the House Pinot.

The atmosphere at Saffron Salmon is unique and unprecedented. Northwest artists' work are available for sale on the walls, and the view is not just beautiful, if you time it right you can see that which makes this working port's character: sea vessels coming inland under the Newport bay with fresh fish from the ocean. It's relaxing and you feel like you are a part of the local charm while dining in this fabulous location.
The chef is actually a chef, and the menu items change due to availability of local items and the chef's latest recipes.
Sometimes locals overlook this gift of a restaurant because it is a bit spendy for our small-town budgets, but the offerings are much more sophisticated than most local menus at Saffron Salmon, so the prices are justified. Small children aren't really catered to, so while it is a great small family restaurant, the guests should be at least 12 or over to really appreciate the menu.
The restaurant is cozy. There is limited reservation space. This makes this the perfect spot for a very special occassion like a birthday or an anniversary.
