"My wife and I went to Saffires this past Saturday night (Feb. 6) arriving in the bar at 5:10 p.m. We had looked online before booking our dinner reservation at 6:00 through Open Table. After seeing the happy hour offerings online, we decided to go earlier to the bar, have some drinks and an appetizer before dinner. The bartender told us happy hour had ended at 5:00. We ordered drinks anyway, but the wine charge was $13 opposed to the $5 happy hour price. The PROBLEM started when a party of four women came and sat to my right at the bar. The bartender (Adam) immediately told them about happy hour, presented them with a happy hour menu and the drink specials. My wife heard him and Adam looked up and knew she had heard him. He came over and took something off our bill with a couple of excuses. Then he did so again. Not a very good practice in my opinion."

"A great place in Franklin's Factory...I have been a fan of Saffire since it's original opening. They have the best Southern Caesar in Nashville, never mind Franklin! The oysters were fresh and perfectly served. Cocktail menu is innovative and worth exploring. The entree sizes are large and priced accordingly. You could surely split a dish if you were not starving. One of my favorite places that always delivers and so close to home. Keep up the good work Tom!"

"We have dined at Saffires multiple times. The food is always great, and we generally get good service. The issue on this visit however, were the hostesses. We showed up 20 minutes early for our reservations, but they refused to seat us regardless us of several open tables. My wife and I naturally assumed that maybe the tables were reserved for others maybe. However, when they finally seated us, the same tables remained open.
As a past server, I understand that sometimes sections are closed, etc. However, this was a weekend night and there was clearly coverage. The hostesses were dismissive and snooty when we inquired.
It is only because of our history with Saffires that we will return. However, if this had been our first visit, it would be our last.
Get it together Saffires!"

"We went during Nashvillle Originals restaurant week. We had to ask for the special menus, it was not promoted. Both meals were a little bland. One main course was described as having 2 eggs on top, but only had one. The special menu clearly stated that the pricing did not include drinks or tip, but when I got my credit card recipt back, it already had a 20% tip added. Never saw the waitress again to point this out. Food and service were good, just not as high as I was expecting from this restaurant."

"They could not find our reservation. They sat us right by the kitchen even though there were plenty of empty tables. Once we requested and got moved service was very good. Wife got Cuban Pork and it was too spicy to enjoy. She had just visited Cuba three weeks prior and the food is not overly spicy. My chicken fried chicken was very good. When we got the bill there was a 20% tip automatically added. I see no reason to add for this when it was just the two of us. They never even had to refill our glasses."

"I've eaten at Sapphire many times over the last ten years. The food is always solid, as is the service. The ambiance is always that comfortable dark and busy that eclectic restaurants often have (unless you eat on the porch, which is clean and bright and uncluttered). Hit or miss over the years has been the family-friendliness. This last visit was very friendly to the kids. We were offered children's menus, which were not always available. We sat apart from the other diners at a table large enough to fit our party of six that happened to be right next to both the sushi counter and the live jazz ensemble. The sushi chef absolutely made the evening special for the kids, giving them an ongoing lesson in his craft and allowing them samples of a few of his ingredients. The kids found food items that they enjoyed from the children's menu and expanded their palate with pickings from our appetizer and meals. Service was speedy enough and had enough entertainment that we could enjoy our entire meal before the youngest got too antsy. I'm glad that we can put Sapphire in a more regular rotation rather than just reserving it for those rare babysitting occasions."

"Matthew made sure we had a wheelchair accessible table. Our waiter (don't recall his name) was great. He recommended food for us, and was attentive throughout our meal. Great experience. Great staff."

"Consistently good, Saffire is one of our local favorites. Menu has changed a bit over time, but always creative and delicious. Our "go to" when dining with folks from outside the area."
