The New York Times
Try the Rosejat Rpidaa paella riff made with short noodles instead of ricewhich incorporates poached chicken, chorizo and briny cockles. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
Time Out New York
The service was fantastic, the food was amazing, but the smell of fresh flowers is what put this place on a whole other level.
Tapas were ok but the hostess was extremely rude. I ended up eating at the bar even though I had a reservation just because my husband came in 5 minutes after me. I wouldn't recommend this place
For brunch, get a pitcher of sangria and the Bikini A La Plancha, soooo good!
The name Salinas is an homage to the areas along the Mediterranean Sea where salt is harvested. This translates into tapas like fried shishito peppers and mussels in a wine and smoked paprika sauce.
Pretty good selection of cocktails. Staff could be a bit more inviting. Not authentic Spanish.
By far my favorite restaurant in Nyc. Great deco. Great food.
Try fideos, morcilla and really just about anything you haven't had before at a "Spanish" restaurant. Thank you Salinas for bringing home more than just jamn.
The restaurant is so sexy.
Squid ink pasta is extraordinary.
You're likely to have a pleasant meal, with plenty on the menu to enjoy. The problem is, with tapas that start around $8 and entrees in the mid-$20s or higher, we wanted something more.
According to John Tiblier "The bathrooms smell AMAZING!"
We love the patatas bravas and gambas al ajillo here, as well as the pretty setting.

Very good great for a date
This sucks actually its good.
The food was good but not memorable. The seafood and chicken paella was a very hearty meal. I advise to opt for the seafood. There is a pork belly appetizer that is not to be missed.
The cocktails! Great for dates
They import the flowers from Argentina every week! Do your research on wines if you can before hand, as your standard white and reds are not available!
