Sunday supper
Always on the look out for something a bit different and we could walk to Saffron's from our hotel. We nearly didn't go in when we looked through the door but we have had great food from some not so great looking places in the past.
Big open dining area - plastic table tops and banquet chairs, looked clean though.
Waitress was pleasant and attentive, she was the best thing about this restaurant.
The menu looks interesting at first but then it all just comes down to rice, meat and vegetables.
We ordered rice balls & stuffed vine leaves to start. They came out very quickly, so obviously prepared ahead. They were presented nicely and tasted okay. For our main dishes we ordered the

It's so nice and relaxing inside. The decor is subdued and it creates a nice ambiance.
As for the food, both the salmon and the chicken & beef kabobs are very good. They come with rice and several roasted veggies. Also, there is a complimentary salad and some pita bread.
Unfortunately, this restaurant was out of several items we tried to order.

Great service but the food was not a wow.
My husband and I and I visited for dinner. He had a beef stew and and had seafood stew. I specifically asked if the seafood tended to be overcooked because I like my fish just cooked. It was overcooked. My husbands beef was not as tender as I would like. I love the sauces, lentils, etc. but it could be better.
Ice cream was great! Prices very reasonable.

Not as impressed as some
We are always looking for good Middle Eastern Food and reading the reviews convinced us to try this place.
We had quite a large group for dinner. The setting was very Persian and relaxed. Our server, Alan, did a marvelous job of explaining the presentation of the meals, which were beautiful. He also did a great job of explaining why the spicing might have been different than what we expected. Apparently, some of their guests had complained. Well the truly Middle Eastern spicing was what we were looking for.
I found the Ghormeh Sabzi that I ordered rather tasteless, not at all what I was expecting.
I didn't hear any overt complaints, but I was rather embarrassed as th
