    Terrific tapas restaurant with great quality food, and terrific service. The only downside is select dishes were needlessly very expensive. I've ordered tomatoes with Spanish vinegar and oil (literally the whole dish) and paid $18 for it. ;)

    I went with co-workers this week and we sampled many of the tapas. I highly recommend: shrimp in garlic, fig wrapped in bacon, green salad and the prosciutto on bread. Everything we tried was excellent but these were the crowd favorites. Our waiter Pachito was very attentive and entertaining. I will go back on a Monday for the Flamenco show.

  • worst tapas ive ever had - so loud!

    Dined on 5/5/2014
    I never write reviews, but I love tapas and this was the worst food I have had. Their patatas bravas were okay. I got some shrimp toast thing that was so tasteless - it wasnt seasoned at all. We got grilled asparagus which was super oily and cost $12 (ridiculous). And they managed to serve bad fried goat cheese. I was shocked by their prices too. On top of it all they had live flamenco dancing in the bar area, which seemed cool but I could not hear my friend speaking at all - it was wayyyy too loud. Will definitely never dine here again.

    The tapas at Sala One Nine are fantastic. The dates wrapped in bacon, the chorizo, and the stuffed mushrooms are fabulous. While the shrimp in garlic and oil and croquettes de jamon are not far behind. We also appreciated our server, who recommended the sherry flight as a dessert drink. Shared by 3 of us, it was a perfect ending to a great meal.

    Dates wrapped in bacon? Tasty and give me 3x more orders, check. There were tasty octopus dishes (soft and not rubbery), the serrano ham on crostini (a better version of bruschetta). Although super dark, so sometimes tough to see the food you eat, it was a tasty venue. Order the paella first as you sit down, it will take a while.

The service is first rate and I highly recommend Sala One Nine. It is a charming and most romantic place to bring that very special person in your life.

    We arrived with a reservation on a Sunday night. The restaurant was not crowded and we were seated right away. Then we sat for 15 minutes before the waiter arrived at our table. He took our drink order and then we placed an order for paella and were told that would be a 35 minute wait. Considering we had been ignored for 15 minutes we didn't feel like waiting for 35 minutes more to get our meal so we left. Very disappointing!

    What's better than meeting up with old gal pals and catching up over pitchers of sangria and shared plates of deliciousness? I've never had bad service, enjoy the waiters' recommendations when we're stuck on what to order- and overall am always very happy with my experience when I leave. Must have's for me: bacon wrapped dates, ham croquettes, the fried goat cheese in honey and that absolutely delicious lamb Friends always enjoy the garlicky shrimp, patatas bravas, the duck toast- and pretty much anything else!! Enjoy!

    Went here with a friend for dinner. We decided to get a tosta and paella. The toast was outstanding with marinated mushrooms on top. The paella was flavorful and a good portion for two. The service was great, the dining room was packed (always a good sign on a week night) and overall it was a delicious meal. It wasn't cheap but nothing in Manhattan is. This would be a good place for a group to go and sample a bunch of different dishes.

    I made the reservations over a month prior - somehow we got stuck with the worst table in the house. My seat was CONSTANTLY getting knocked into by the service staff. The server acted like we were the biggest bother to him. HE got angry at us because he misunderstood what we ordered and had to take it back but still trying to leave the dishes so we would get charged for it. We brought in a small cupcake to sing happy birthday. We were charged $30 cake cutting fee for a SMALL CUPCAKE without giving us clean utensils/plates. I pulled the manager to the side to express my disappointment and hopefully just get an apology out of it so we would feel good about returning. He was SO rude to me and shrugged it off like he couldn't possibly care.

    First time here was on a Friday at 7PM. Place was packed. Venue has a small "front bar" and a larger "back bar." Both were full. the Sangria at $5.00 was good (could have been strong...but for $5.00 well worth it). Tapas came fast. Dates+Bacon; Octopus and and cheese stuffed peppers. All good; all good-sized tapas portions. Service was attentive - but not a place to dine with leisure. Were in/out in under an hour. Better than most Tapas places left in NYC and certainly less expensive. I would recommend it if this is the type of food you want

    Dined on 1/11/2014
    I used to consider Sala a great local tapas place and perhaps a hidden gem with those that didn't know better waiting at Boqueria down the street. However my most recent meal here after a year hiatus was not even close to the quality I remember. Standbys like bacon wrapped dates, shrimp in garlic and meatballs were still good, but a chicken special was severely lacking in flavor, the patatas bravas completely flat and the squid dish nearly inedible. In addition the noise created by a large party near our table didn't damper our evening but rather it was the waitstaffs disregard of our table once the larger group arrived. Not the hidden gem I remembered from years past
