Fodor's Review

This fine-dining restaurant occupies a quaint yellow building that once housed the historic Chock Inn Store, which catered to the Waimea ranching community beginning in 1900. Previously the landmark Daniel Thiebaut's restaurant, the new establishment offers a mostly organic, locally sourced, sustainable menu that includes everything from handmade pastas to grass-fed steaks, vegetarian dishes, and dry-aged organic rib eye. Saffron offers a Sunday brunch from 10 to 2, featuring live local music and slack-key players.
