Salinas Ratings and Reviews
Newly designed decor hasn’t compromised the quality of food or service which is excellent. Authentically Baelaric island feel adds to the sexy ambience...Relatively small wine list but the sommelier is extremely helpful. Tapas menu makes the meal exciting from the outset. Great for a date.
Lovely ambience with the fire on a cold night, the scent of roses and beautiful arrangements of roses throughout the restaurant. We would have liked to linger but due to pre-theatre were very gracefully handled to ensure that had optimal dining experience with great selection of pre-fixe price dinner menu.
Salinas is a lovely restaurant serving delicious and attractive food but sadly, left us very disappointed. We arrived early for dinner after notifying the restaurant on Open Table reservation of Theater time. We reminded our waiter who assured us that he would make sure to have us out on time. Sadly, this was not the case. The waiter “disappeared” after our first course, and after complaining to the lovely and very apologetic manager our beautiful main course arrived! We declined it as there was no time to enjoy it. Restaurant was very apologetic and but this experience left us confused and very disappointed.
Will we give Salinas another chance?.... we’ll see!
Wonderful experience! Complete knowledge of the menu by our waiter. The food is so good! The Duck Salad was our favorite. Yum! Delicious drinks resulting from a glorious mix of (never heard of) alcohols by their talented bartenders. The ambience was romantic and intimate but with a lively feel. Will absolutely be back!
I love this place and they have kept it at a high level of service and food for a long time. For once I didn’t get the steak - which is my go to - but all the smallmates we got were amazing especially the patatas bravas, eggplant with pistachios and octopus.
The service is here is really impeccable- from the welcoming and friendly hostesses to the knowledagble wait staff. You won’t get any of the attitude and bitchiness that you get at many other NYC restaurants with similar chic clientele (for example, at Barbuto).
These people know how to make glorious food, and create an atmosphere where you feel right at home, whether you are a regular or going there for the first time.
Got there 5:20 for 6 o’clock res. Manager disciplined can’t stay inside until after they open at 5:30. It was 5:20, cold and, well, I ended up outside until after 5:30. Just dumb. Eaoecially the lecture at the door about his liability because they were doing construction (no where near front door)
Waiter excellent, food just OK. For price expected more. Table crammed in, not spacious, doesn’t match price point.
Overall? Not again. Can think of better high end Spanish restaurants. Still, so e folks may like it.
We have been to Salinas on many occasions but this is the first time since they have reconfigured the bar and front. While I like the original version the new version does not change your experience - although we will avoid the semicircular banques by the bar as they are not comfortable for us
Continues with fantastic food that is wonderful to the taste and creative. Same for the wines both by the glass and the bottle
I had a reservation for 4 people at 6:45 PM on Friday 12/1/17. I was the first of my party of 4 to arrive, and I was on time at 6:45 PM. Two other people in my party arrived by 7 PM, and the last one was running late due to her job as a surgery fellow and she was coming directly from work. We asked to be seated but was told that everyone had to be present for us to be seated, and that after the 15 min grace period, our reservation would automatically be canceled.
Eventually, the hostess did seat the 3 of us around 7 PM but instructed that we must order right away and that we had a strict out time by 8:30 PM. We finished our meal but chose to go elsewhere for dessert because we ran out of time by 8:30 PM.
Food is ok, service is extremely poor. Everyone in my party works in healthcare, and if we treated patients like this, we would all be fired. The food is not that great enough to make up for the lack of service.
Great place, but the automatic cancellation of my OpenTable reservation because I failed to respond to a phone call from the restaurant (unknown number to me) takes it off the list of places I'd book through OpenTable, and - therefore - probably means I won't go there again. Reducing the friction/increasing the ease of my reservations is the whole point of the OpenTable service. Salina's policy defeats the purpose. Perfectly OK as NYC has plenty of other options.
Great lighting and wonderful service was my first impression. The sangria was arguably the best I've had. A good simple menu for a romantic night out eating light on tapas but we were surprisingly satisfied by the end of the night which was a first for a tapas night(a good thing). Maybe the menu is too simple because we both left feeling like there was nothing left on it that we simply HAD to go back for. I would go back for the sangria although it was pricy. My date loved it and she was very happy.
What was once a warm , welcoming and beautiful restaurant made for special occasions has become one driven by the reservation book at the front door where attitude presents like a century at the gate. Woe to the guest who arrives early or late. One minute can ruin an entire evening. You’re banished to the cramped front bar room to cue up should they choose to honor your reservation and if so, you’ll have a restriction imposed on the amount of time you can occupy the table. . If it’s a celebration you’re planning I’d stay far away from this place.
I lieu of beautiful flowers, personable service and excellent cuisine, mediocrity now takes center stage. The front staff are full of themselves, wheeling their power with a rigidity, insensitivity and arrogance I found “distasteful. This should be a no reservation place with seating first come, first serve.
