The restaurant has a very pleasing ambiance - a relaxing atmosphere. A small and open dining area. "...a little slice of the Mediterranean in downtown Walla Walla. Inspired by our travels, Saffron reflects some of our favorite aspects of food, service and atmosphere. Our menu is Mediterranean inspired, using seasonal, local, organic and all natural ingredients whenever possible. From our breads to flatbreads, pastas to cured meats and sausages, anything that can be made in house - will be." That quote from their web page definitely tells the story behind this delightful restaurant. Food presentation is superb! The plates are presented in a delightfully pleasing visual picture. The food quality and the taste is excellant. The Duck Tagine, Lamb, and Seafood Pasta plates are artfully displayed. The service staff is superb - pleasant and helpful and not over whelming. They just seem to know when you want something and they appear. It is also nice to have the owner, Island Ainsworth, come around to each table and personally engage the patrons. The prices are in range for the quality of the food and the service that they provide.     
If you are in Walla Walla, or if you want to travel from Boise to Walla Walla for dinner, this is the place to go! Thhe "Saffron Mediterranean Kitchen" is well worth the trip and the time. Do not miss this restaurant! We asked 5 people in Walla Walla where they would eat and 4 out of 5 (80%) said "Saffron Mediterranean Kitchen". They were right!
