    First visit to Saffron, beautiful day for a seat on the patio. Cocktails were excellent, try the house old fashioned! We had a naan/cheese/spinach appetizer which was really good, and all our meals were excellent. The biryani was the best I’ve had, will definitely be going back - even if it is big enough to feed a family all by itself. Highly recommend you try Saffron out.

    Food was great but the past three times we have been the service has been absolutely terrible. Really sad because it used to be amazing all around but because of service we will no longer be returning.

    With the great reviews, I had high expectations. The food simply wasn’t as flavorful oth chicken dishes were dry. Food felt very Americanized. On the good side was good cocktails and service.

    Cordial welcome, alert service (even while letting me linger), well-crafted cocktail (the Mumbai, a Boulevardier variation), assertive chutneys with the beef samosa appetizer, spice level as ordered for tender Lamb Madrasi, generous portions, excellent value thanks to three happy hour selections (including a glass of the house red blend). Saffron Urban Indian has been a favorite of mine since it opened.

    I have never left a review for a restaurant, but Saffron was such a wonderful experience I had to. The food was incredible and the portions are huge. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful and the workers were incredibly friendly and helpful. Overall 10/10 experience, will be coming back many times and I’d recommend this place to everyone.

    Delicious! This was our third visit to Saffron and it was just as fabulous as the first two! Their samosas are wonderful; great flavors, delicious crust, yummy mint chutney! We also tried the artichoke and cheese naan and it was another win! It all paired beautifully with a bottle of Prisoner wine! We will definitely return.

    Saffron is one of our favorite places. Everyone is so nice and attentive. If you are unfamiliar with the food, all you have to do is ask and they will tell you what is in it and make a recommendation if you like. The food is very flavorful and plentiful!

    Really good food. Service less than spectacular for a restaurant that automatically includes 20% gratuities for groups of five or more. Don’t mind the gratuities just make sure the service is up to speed which it was not.

    We really liked our waitress who made excellent suggestions and had a very nice manner. However, we arrived at 8:05pm and were finally checked out at 10:15pm. It was New Years Eve, a busy night, but most of the dining room cleared out by 9pm. The food and drinks were very good, but our waitress could have made more money if she would have been more attentive.

    Wonderfully accommodating for a party of 10 ( with 3 different checks!!). Service great considering how packed they were with large groups on NYE. My ONLY quibble is with the noise level. We were in the side room where all the noisy, large NYE groups were seated and most of the tables were very, very loud. No one’s fault but I will only eat in the main room Winter) or the outside patio (summer). Food was really, really good.

    The Salmon Buhna was delicious! I also had a Coconut Mojito that was really good. The veg samosas weren't my favorite. The service was a bit awkward. It's a beautiful space! I love all of the plants! It gets a little loud when the dining room is full. Overall I was really pleased! I'll definitely be back!
