What Insiders Are Saying
With all the Spanish food in this ‘hood it’s a big statement to make, but there is no better restaurant to get your Español on than Salinas.
Beautiful restaurant with great service and delicious food.
The surprise find of a week in NYC - wonderful feel, fabulous small plates, friendly & professional service. We’ll be back.
Outstanding experience. Food was perfect and on time. Service was marvelous.
My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant last week. The food was great, especially the Pork Belly !
I would recommend the small plates menu. This was our second time at Salinas, and we will definitely be back !
Great food in a charming atmosphere. We were worried that we didn’t order enough food but the portions are generous.
Service was good, staff was friendly and attentive, and the cocktails were great -- but overall a little pricey and not much variety on the menu. Good place to meet for drinks, a small bite and quiet conversation, but perhaps not ideal for a dinner date.
Extremely cool ambiance! Great food wonderful service. Very cool decor!! Will definitely return my next nyc visit!
Found the seating a bit cramped but otherwise everything was excellent.
One of the best dining experiences I have ever had.. food was outstanding service was fantastic and the atmosphere was perfect. Will be returning many times and def highly recommend this restaurant
While the restaurant design and ambience is amazing, the food is extremely subpar. There are better tapas places in Manhattan and specially in the Chelsea area. The food was utterly disappointing and the beautiful garden area and decor did not save the meal. The octopus was fried so much that every bite felt like chewing plastic. The cheesy croquettes tasted like movie theater cheese. Will not come back and do not recommend.
Excellent! Beautiful decor! Will visit again. Somewhat expensive but worth the cost. Popcorn crusted octopus was outstanding and unusual. Cheese plate was excellent.
wonderful spanish / tapas menu; our waiter Garrett was very knowledgeable about each menu item and ingredients used..his recommendations were spot on
OCTOPUS WITH SQUID INK AMAZING; SERVICE WAS VERY ATTENTIVE BUT NOT INTRUSIVE
Excellent restaurant, service is on point, delicious food
Garden room is beautiful, great for a special occasion (birthday in this case)
This restaurant is totally underated! Great food!! Amazing ambiance!
Great food and a great neighborhood restaurant vibe!
Very quiet, great food & service in a cozy place
I have eaten at Salinas the last 3 occasions on which I have visited New York and chosen the tasting menu. The food and service are always excellent.
Dinner was good. Not great, not bad, just good. Far too expensive for the quality of the meal.
I would give this restaurant raving reviews if not for the fact that they cancelled my 8pm reservation for 4 people at 4pm on the same day without any reason and did not return my call after i left a vm. It wasn't for overcapacity either because i was able to obtain the same reservation for 7:30pm (but my guests had to scramble to adjust their schedules). No one bothered to apologize either when I showed up and and in addition we were squeezed into a small booth table in the bar area more suitable for 2-3 people then for 4 with hardly any room to breath and little air conditioner. After dining there on multiple occasions it was very disappointing to be treated this way.
Tasty food. Really enjoyed everything I got. Pretty pricey but I didn’t pay for the date so I didn’t mind. Really good drinks as well.
This is one of my favorite New York restaurants, and I always think of it for special occasions. A gorgeous room, good food, attentive and energetic service, very good food.
A pleasant surprise! This authentic Spanish cuisine with a modern flair in an absolutely breathtaking and comfortable setting made for a memorable meal.
Dinner with old friends.
The food and wine was spectacular, the decor was beautiful in the back room, and the service was perfect.
We all agreed we’d love to go back.
Wonderful food and service in elegant surroundings. Gambas al Ajillo were fabulous.
Great paella and romantic candle-lit dining area! Great for anniversaries.
My wife and I had a very nice evening at Salinas Restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff was very accomodating and atentive at all times. I would absolutely recomend it to family and friends!
Good food, wonderful service and a beautiful and romantic atmosphere for a summer evening in the garden dining area!
The food and wait staff were terrific; but can’t say the same about the hostess who greeted me at the door. My friend arrived to our reservation on time and had a drink at the bar while waiting, but due to train delays, I was 16 minutes late. I was greeted by the hostess who informed me in a rude manner that they were only allowed to hold my reservation for 15 min (reminder- my friend was already there; and I was 16 minutes late), so I had lost my reservation, but that I was welcome to still have dinner with them. Because of her reaction, I assumed the restaurant was packed. But to my surprise, all of the tables were empty!!! So rude! Why make a fuss and tell me that I lost my reservation when my friend and I were the only ones in the restaurant. Luckily, the food & wait staff were excellent. Hopefully, the management of the restaurant will wise up and replace the hostess....ASAP!
Wonderful creative Spanish Tapas. Locally sourced. Has great bar and seating.
I had been to the restaurant three times previously and enjoyed it greatly. This time, despite a reservation and many empty tables, we were seated in the banquettes in the bar area. The seats are exquisitely uncomfortable. The temperature in the room was too hot. Daniel, our server, was great, but the rest of the experience was disappointing.
Amazing food, perfect service and an outstanding evening provided by the wonderful folks running this gem!
It was the best dining experience we have had in NY. From the beginning to the end everything was outstanding! Hostess was very nice to us, everyone while we were walking to the tbl said hi. You feel very special. Hospitality is on a very high level! Our server was incredible (Garret not sure about spelling the name)! Very knowledgeable (we had a great conversation about Spanish wine) , polite and always there if anything needed. Support stuff was elegant and at the right time. The atmosphere is unforgettable... the decor, music. Food.. delicious! Everything! It was our anniversary and first time in NY together. We had couple more dinners out during this trip but we’ll never forget this dinner. It’ll be our favorite spot in this city and definitely will recommend to everyone! You’re doing excellent job!!
Best Sangría in NYC, we tried several tapas but our favorites were the heirloom tomatoes and the roasted pig...fantastic! Please don’t leave without smelling the beautiful fresh roses from Ecuador.
Fantastic synthetic Spanish food!! Wonderful Michelin star gem in Chelsea
Food was outstanding. The cocktails are unique and bring you back!
Unique Spanish food and atmosphere - love the crusted octopus and squid ink pasta.
Great meal and wine. Courteous staff. Pretty surrounding. Small plates were special.
