Saffron: "Off the Beaten Path" Sonoma Restaurant Tip by jakelorenzo

Sonoma Restaurants: 58 reviews and 89 photos

Saffron is a small delightful restaurant run by the chef/owner. It's in the sleepy hamlet of Glen Ellen about 5 miles from the Sonoma plaza. The menu is always interesting, featuring seasonal local products. Presentation is fun with a wide variety of dishes. Food shows elements of fresh California wine country, with Asian, Spanish and French influence. The wine list is terrific and reasonable. One free corkage for each bottle purchased from list. Friendly service, although things slow down when the restaurant is crowded.

Currently, summer 2009, Saffron is undergoing an extensive remodel. We'll see what happens when they reopen.
