  • DO NOT EAT AT SAFFRONS on Corydon:
    Just went there last night and it was the worst dining experience I've ever had:
    1) Both my girlfriend and I were puking after from food poisoning (old meat)
    2) Terrible and rude service that forgot every request including water refills, extra napkins, and ketchup.
    3) Took 1 and half hours to get our food which was simply a pizza and a burger.
    4) They served me my pizza 20 minutes before they served my girlfriend her burger.
    5) Our cups were filthy dirty.
    6) My rum and coke tasted simply like coke.
    7) The food was absolutely disgusting and flavourless.
    DO NOT EAT THERE. PLEASE TAKE MY ADVICE!

  • Order: Pizza, fries, hamburger

  • Just went there about 2 weeks ago with a girlfriend of mine and was super disappointed. We went for drinks and wanted a little snack so we ordered the burschetta....we were on the patio and had good music going..but it was very loud, we could hardly hear eachother talking but our server was very nice. Once we got the food...we took one bite and both looked at eachother with disgust! it had goat cheese on it. So we informed our waitress and said we'd like the quesadillas instead, She said no problem took the burschertta and went to put in our order. 5minutes later this man that worked there came to our table and informed us that "the manager said we would still have to pay for the burschetta because the menu explains that there is goat cheese on it."..and we said excuse me? What does it matter if the menu says it..we didn't like it! If it was dropped on the floor accidently would you still charge us for it?" NORMALLY restaurants would swop the orders no problem and not charge you for the food you didn't like. I Told him why would I still pay for it...when the food has been taken away from our table. Im paying for something you already threw away and im still sitting here without any food and he said nothing and walked away. So another 5minutes went by and I got hold of the waitress and told her what the guy told us. She was very surprised and had no idea about it. So she went to speak to the manager and was gone for like 10minutes...once she came back she said "The manager wouldn't budge, so I paid for your burschetta and the quesadillas will be out right away" I couldn't believe the manager wouldn't take the $8 off our bill in replacement of the quesadillas! There was no need for the server to take money from her own pocket and pay for part of our meal. That is the worst costumer service I have ever experienced and the manager needs to go for training on how to properly treat costumers. Like really ,how much money would they have lost for tomatos cheese on 4 TINY pieces of bread..it was$8!!!!! I will never go back there knowing the manager is such an A$$
    ps. the quesadillas were tasty but you only got half a quesadilla (4 pieces instead of 8)
    Just because your on corydon doesn't mean you can treat your customers badly.,,,if you ask me corydon is going down hill

  • Order: wine, ceaser and burschetta(GROUSE) and quesadillas

You don't get things for free or taken off the bill if you just don't like it, you get it taken off if it wasn't made right. Big difference. It's not their fault you can't read!!

  • This was one of the worse meals I've ever had and I will never eat there again. The mussels had cream of celery soup dumped on them, the 'grilled' chicken was boiled and tasteless, and the entire salad was completely swimming in a horrible sauce. The waitress showed little concerned that I left my meal untouched and was not interested in trying to make my meal worthwhile. The only thing Saffron's has going for it is its location, otherwise I don't see how it would have any business.

  • Order: mussels and the grilled chicken salad

  • The food is great , the selection is big especially for corydon and for a restaurant that big the food took a little long but if you order appetizers time passes and there calamari and saffrons mussels are to die for. The server we had was very pleasant and the drink service was pretty fast, unlike some other patios in the city where you ignored for half an hour before you are even greeted. The patio has a great view of the busy street I highy recommend..

  • Order: Chicken Saffrons, Penne Bomb,Bison Ribs,Gyro Pita, Sangria, Bellini, calamari,saffron mussles, ganache, Ny cheesecake with cherr

  • While people rave about this restaurant, I believe it is more because of the drinks than the food. The chicken breast was half frozen and the rice did not have the fragrance of safron in it despite it being advertised as such. The only thing that would save the meal was the vegetables, which, by the way, were so oversteamed that they were extremely flabby and soft. Definately not a place to take someone, or to eat by yourself. The staff there also did not seem to care for the customers, except if they wanted drinks. No asking how the meal was, if anything could be better, or anything else. I paid for a half eaten meal and left, vowing never to return.

  • Order: Chiken a la king with safron rice

  • I've never rated ANY restaurant this low in my life but I'm very motivated to alert people of the extremely poor all around quality of this place.

    Don't make the same mistake I made. You're better off at McDonalds. Or even snacking at your cat litter box. It couldn't leave a worse aftertaste than eating at this horrible restaurant.

    To top it all off, the condition of the washroom certainly didn't reflect the price of the meal. And believe me, you'll need a washroom shortly after eating the entrees.

  • Order: Spaghetti Atlantic, Chicken Saffron, Pickerel dish

  • What can i say!!!! loved it. and cant wait to go back, ok waitresses could of looked a bit more happy & a bit of speed in service would of been nice from them, after all they want tipped, but the food was flavourful and fresh, patio was clean and plenty of room at the table, food was priced accordingly, The restaurant was packed, but we were not made to fell rushed at all, I would have no problem sharing this gem with others.

  • Order: bushetta, seafood linguine, chicken pitta & garden salad, chocolate ganash!, red wine x4, blush x4.

  • 1am on a Wednesday: The waitress was shy or something, After the host found us a table 15 mins passed and no one even walked past us, it wasn't busy it was far form full capacity. I had to go to the host and she directed me to a waitress who in turn sent out for another person to get the manager and finally another guy came and took the orders, the service remarkably changed once all the staff know you want to order (is it too much to ask!). Service is lame, Location and Patio atmosphere is great, Price and Value are OK.

  • Order: Beer & Nachos
