I'm implementing a RemoteApp solution on a Windows 2012 server. One of the applications available to the accredited logged in user is Excel, and they will need to save files from within Excel. However, I do not want them to be able to browse the server's drives nor save to them. Instead, they must save their files to their local computer.

How can I implement this?

Create a loopback policy and apply it to the server.  In the policy you could specify local drives on the server from being visible.  This is common practice on RDS and Citrix servers.  Refer to MS article below:
