Our group of 9 ate at Saffron this past weekend and had a really good meal. The restaurant is very attractive and comfortable. Easy to talk with others at your table, even in a group as large as ours. While everything was very good, there were a few dishes that were standouts. The chicken and porcini croquettes literally melted in your mouth with a superb combination of flavors.The squash and mushroom farrotto was equally good - very rich and creamy as a good risotta should be and bursting with flavor. Among the starters the only one that we thought was a bit weak was the figs and foie. Nothing really wrong with it, just nothing special. For mains the gnocchi was perhaps the best I have ever tasted and the lamb chops were great as was the Branzini. Our group had two of the tagines - duck and the seafood. Both were quite good, but not quite as great as the ones mentioned above.
If I had to make one criticism, i would say that the waitperson was a bit indifferent. She was very attentive and did her job professionally, but with not much personality.
