Excellent wine by the glass. Calamari appy great with a light coating and a bit of chili bite. Enjoy the chowder and if you like lamb get the rack.

Had dinner at Saffron Salmon. Food was fantastic. Service was equally as good. It is a small restaurant so be sure to make reservations. So happy we gave it a try. It will be on our list for top stops in Newport.

Pricey restaurant for Newport. Food well prepared, but menu is limited. A bottle of local beer was $6.50. Stay away from their steaks, way too much salt and pepper.

Perfection! Right on the water, great service, casual but very pretty dining room, absolutely delicious food. Wow! They have a nice range of meal prices, too, from full-on entrees to just salads with added fresh fish or chicken.

It depends. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy with amazing views and a small number of tables in a small room. The staff is very kid friendly; however, this is an upscale linen and cloth napkins restaurant. Your kids... More

Our corkage fee is $15.00 and only ask that the wine you bring in isn't something we already carry. Hope to see you soon.
