Intimate restaurant with a classy atmosphere. Beautiful view of the bay and my children enjoyed watching the boats coming and going. Great all natural food consciously prepared. The salmon was superb and my daughter loved the chowder. They were welcoming to my toddler and ready with a snack until our meal was prepared. Definitely recommend!

Fresh local seafood and careful preparation. Would suggest a reservation in the summer season. A bit expensive but worth it.

Our top favorite, Local Ocean, doesn't take reservations for large parties, in our case, a table of 8, so we decided to venture West on the main drag and found ourselves enjoying a new discovery. This is a very cozy and intimate space right on the bay and very impressive in their fresh seafood offerings. The wine list is small but adequate. The kitchen is kinda slow so be prepared to order appetizers first to hold off for the 'main event.' Cheers

I have never taken a picture of food. Should have this time. Might be the best I have had. Great location on water and you can watch boats come in and out. The stew was about as good as I have ever had and really can't remember something better. Service was great and restaurant was in great shape

Saffron Salmon continues to be one of the best restaurants in Newport and certainly the best bet on the Newport waterfront. The restaurant is at the end of a dock, so you are right on the water with a great view of the bay and the bridge. Service is always welcoming and attentive. We are not Brussel sprout fans, but the flash fried version they offer may convert us. The chowder is delicious, crab cake appetizer one of the best I’ve had, and for those not into seafood (e.g., my better half with seafood allergies), the burger is large and flavorful.
