I see at least one review listing this as a Florence Oregon establishment. It is not. Rather it is out at the end of a pier in Newport. It is decidedly not a fish and chips, down home, bay front cozy. The interior is modern sparse, but the view out side is wide water, big bridge and myriad working boats.... More

We spent a long weekend in Newport and this was by and far the best meal we had. Great little restaurant directly on the water with great views and plenty of seal sightings. The salmon dish was out of this world! We had to make reservations.

My friend, visiting from Florida, and I arrived at this little gem right as they opened. The view is quite nice, although I imagine it's nicer in the evening, with lights on across the harbor. I ordered a sample plate which was a lot more food than I can eat so I had leftovers. The shrimp and crab cake was... More

This little restaurant on the bay front near the bridge at Florence, OR has a wonderful view of the bay. Across from the restaurant is the port for the Coast Guard and a large marina. We watched harbor seals during our entire meal. The food was excellent. My wife had grilled shrimp with fresh vegetables, whipped potatoes and house salad,... More

This was my first time at this restaurant, and I am so glad I tried it! Their signature salmon dish was out of this world good! So fresh and tasty, and well presented. The place was spotless, and the staff was very friendly and professional. They really have their act together. Good wine list too. Very impressed overall with this... More

Had the seafood stew and while it wasn't a huge bowl it was perfect for lunch. Very fresh seafood, great broth, tasty bread on the side. This is a place I'll surely go to again on our next visit down. Right on the water. Nice servers, very clean. Absolutely no complaints.

We had a spicy seafood stew and gluten free clam chowder and a very good beet salad for dinner. The restaurant is right on the harbor and the sea lions entertain you throughout dinner. The service, view and food were excellent.

The bay front view is so relaxing from this very small and excellent restaurant. We started with calamari, not your normal deep fried stuff but sauteed with goodness. I recommend the spinach salad that was dressed perfectly. Salmon caught locally was in season so that was the perfect choice. They also have a very nice selection of wines.

Well worth checking out. The location, the service and the meals were all excellent. The grilled filet of cod I had was fantastic, and my wife's chowder was just as good. The menu is unique, but pretty limited, otherwise 5 stars.

Wonderful restaurant! I arranged a corporate function through Saffron Salmon, after they were recommended to me by another Newport eatery. The staff were friendly and accommodating for my party of 10, and easy to work with for the reservation. The diners loved the food and drink, and all had very positive reviews of their food and the overall experience. After... More
