This is, quite simply, the most creative restaurant in Walla Walla, one that would stand out in a much larger city. My wife and I ate here twice in a recent stay. The quality of the dishes ranged from very good to OMG. The kitchen's...More

A Washington Wine Country gem! A small menu on which I wanted to order just about every item - thank goodness there were four of us who tasted one another's appetizers and entrees. Brilliant flavor combinations without being pretentious or avant-garde. Service was exceptional and...More

This restaurant is pretty expensive, but quality of food does not justify the price. We ordered lamb & beef tartar (Carne Cruda) as appetizer, which was very good. Our entrees were hunger steak and king salmon. The steak was fine, but salmon portion was small...More

Service was fantastic and the food was very good. Ambiance was cozy cafe. The only reason I gave it four stars is I expected more vegetarian selections. The kitchen worked with us making existing items vegetarian but more selections would have been nice.

Very nice service. Limited menu. The quality of the food, in terms of imaginative combination and blending of flavors and so on, was disappointing. I had the ravioli, which was quite good. My partner had the salmon, which was a big let down: a thick...More

Saffron is very small in size (we hear they are expanding into the space next door), but the flavors of the food were huge and yummy. We enjoyed the potatoes with yogurt-tahini sauce, the beef cheeks (incredibly tender), the cuttlefish, and the carne cruda (lamb-beef...More
