This restaurant was recommended to me through a FB group: NYTimes Cooking group and we were not disappointed at all! We were warmly welcomed at the door by the host, David, and then welcomed again by our very professional, warm and capable waiter. The service was outstanding and the food even better. We chose to eat tapas style, and the food came out incrementally at a pace that was perfect and allowed us to not feel rushed and enjoy the experience. The food was flavorful, and beautifully presented. The ambience was cozy and comfortable. We truly felt like we were in a restaurant in Spain. Without any hesitation we will visit Sala One Nine when we travel to NYC again.

Pros: tasty food, it is authentic. The ham is ballots and is very good. Excellent croquetas, only the
Cons: the service was way too fast, with the empty plates being whisked away as the last mouthful was being eaten. Pan tumaca was excellent, but consisted of two slices of bread the size of my thumb, with jamon bellota, this is not a good value.
The sound level is cacophonous as all surfaces are hard - brick walls, tine ceiling, etc. The prices would be fair if the portions were not so tiny. This restaurant is very interested in turning the tables over as quickly as possible to maximize the number of covers per night.

Cute, romantic place with very good food. The ham croquettes and empanadas are a must have.

Fantástico, me recuerda del sur de España. El show era muy excelente. Espero que el lugar era más grande par mostrar más artistas a una vez. La comida deliciosa y la sangría era rica. 5 estrellas

Consistently delicious. Having been to Spain often and having delighted in some new and evolving Spanish cuisine, I enjoy a restaurant where the food represents traditional Spanish fare. Tapas now mean shared plates and anything goes, but at Sala the tapas are what Spain was and still is even today in most restaurants. The patatas bravas, tortilla, dates have the right flavors. With a large group we end with one paella and one arroz al horno. Everyone is always happy. It’s not geriatric but young and everyone is enjoying. A great place to bring friends for delicious food.

Paella was so bad. Seafood were over cooked. Muscles and calamari tasted like rubber. Over priced for such lousy paella. Everything in there were overpriced for what it is. They need a new management team because it used to be my favorite Spanish restaurant. Not going back for a while.

It all went well until I used the open table app to pay for dinner. The was a lot of confusion and we were kept sitting there for about 20 min without an explanation. They would not take my word for it, even though I had a receipt. Ironically, they were completely aware that I used the app to pay and it made them weirdly unhappy

The food is amazing- from the beet salad to the grilled cauliflower, asparagus... all great veggies. The octopus comes 2 ways- both great. Chorizo was also delicious
Wine list is all Spanish and affordable.
The staff is attentive and the place is always busy but they keep an eye on your needs.
The happy hour from 5-7pm has the place jam packed and very noisy but grab a table in the back and eat up.

Nice interior, but it is EXTREMELY loud. I could barely hear the person sitting across from me. The food was fine, and maybe we ordered the wrong stuff, but nothing knocked my socks off. Weird service, our waiter took one of our menus about 3 minutes after sitting down and told us we only needed one.

Felt like we were in Spain. Loved every we had — stuffed dates, roasted beets, grilled asparagus, lamb chops and scallops. Enjoy a refreshing sangria and the flan for dessert.

My fiancé and I went here with another couple for dinner. It was a little louder than we hoped but we were still able to talk to each other.

We ordered the paella for two and three other tapas to share amongst all of us. My fiancé and I went to Barcelona for vacation last year and had the most amazing squid ink paella at a restaurant on the beach. No paella we have had in the states has come anywhere close to being as good as the one in Barcelona until this restaurant. We thought the paella was great. The fish was very fresh and it was not overloaded with tons of rice like most paella around here is.

We also ordered the potatoes, scallops, and octopus. The scallops were delicious. I have tried a octopus a few times before and have never liked it. But I gave it another try at this restaurant and thought it was great. I would definitely have it again.

Service was also great and we didn’t wait very long for our food even though the restaurant was completely full.

Thank you for a great experience. We will definitely keep this restaurant in mind for future dinners and recommendations to others.

We just got back from Spain, so we were super picky. We had the solomio, pulpo gallega, patatas bravas, Gambas ajillo, and the bellota plate. Everything was tasty, but I didnt see the value in $13 for patatas bravas.

Great food and very authentic. It tends to be a little loud - so I'd say a little difficult for a first date. It could have been due to where we sat. Other than that excellent!
