The food is excellent. Not a regional cuisine and not a tapas place, yet the dishes were Spanish and tasty. Nice decor and efficient service. Only drawback is the noise level.

Gezellige setting, lekker eten, toffe ober, maar finaal vrij duur,
Voor hetzelfde geld kan je elders met 4 personen zélfs nog lekkerder eten.

Though I am aware of the policy I was a bit disappointed that my table was given away. I arrived at 5:48 for my 6:00 pm reservation and waited at the bar after checking in with the hostess. My date was running late and I so informed the hostess. However, when my date arrived at 6:18 our table had been given away! We were forced to dine at the bar, which was less than ideal. Our plates arrived in very quick succession, crowding our space. The overall experience was less than ideal.

Disorganized management. This restaurant seems to have a chronic problem with overbooking and sometimes not honoring reservations. When finally seated, service is slow and food is mediocre at best, and definitely over priced

There are definitely better options in Chelsea!

Such a surprise! Very unassuming from the outside but the ambiance inside was great(summer months I believe the roof is drawn back but the fireplace made it very cozy) The staff was very attentive even warning us about a taste profile we may not like. Bar was great as well. A new fav when in that area

Unfortunately our experience was much less than pleasant as the hostess who checked us in was incredibly rude and condescending.It is such a shame since the food was very good and our waitress was amazing.
Salinas deserves to have a better hostess.

I love this restaurant. It's intimate and beautiful. The roses are so pretty. Terrific empanadas, paella, short ribs. Dessert was also very good. Husband loved the rice pudding.

This was a gem of a find, while searching for recommended restaurants on the west side of Manhattan and had availability for an early Saturday evening dinner. Everything about the experience was superb. Nice bar area for a pre-dinner cocktails, intimate and romantic areas for dinner, well versed and knowledgeable waiter, and creative delicious food.

The only disappointment was that we ordered a bread course that was never delivered, but was not charged for it either.

Great establishment! Would highly recommend, as we will definitely return.

Our third visit; the ambience and consistent quality of food and presentation brings us back to this romantic, lovely place. We arrived slightly late due to subway issues, and the greeter was a bit frosty, but once seated (we waited about 5 additional minutes for the host) the evening rapidly improved.

If you enjoy great ingredients prepared with the consideration of allowing them to shine, this is the place for you. Excellent quality food at a fair price. The special of the day was a tuna belly dish that was my favorite seafood dish of 2019. I believe you are better off ordering multiple smaller plates than an appetizer and entree.

A trendy, well-appointed bistro typical of the Chelsea vibe. The place seems more attuned towards the Instagram crowd than the Foodie scene. The food & cocktails were tasty, well presented, but grossly overpriced: $18 for most cocktails, $28 for a cheese plate that looked, and tasted, like it came from Trader Joe's??!! $28 for 1.5 oz of 24-month Iberico Jamon??!!! Come on!! It wasn't even Bellota!

The Chefs' Mission Statement was to present the patron with his/her version of Spanish staples and s/he achieved that. Keep that in mind when you're in the mood for traditional tapas. I wouldn't recommend this place for dinner (because of the price point) but would happily suggest it for a drink; perfect for date night!

Service made up for the high cost of dinner, but it doesn't lessen the pain.

Food was excellent. Highly recommend the bread service and the lamb ragu. However, waiter was very aloof and unfriendly, and spent most of his time talking and laughing with the next table over.

Excelente opción de comida española en NYC con muy buena correlación calidad-precio. Ambiente muy íntimo y bien cuidado.
Como crítica, solo el precio de los vinos un poco elevado.

Excellent dining experience but a bit on the expensive side. Spanish food is generally not as expensive.
