The Spanish joint has a San Sebastian native in the kitchen making everything from small plates like Iberico ham on toasted bread & garlicky head-on shrimp to bigger, sharable portions.

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.

The service was fantastic, the food was amazing, but the smell of fresh flowers is what put this place on a whole other level.

For brunch, get a pitcher of sangria and the Bikini A La Plancha, soooo good!

Pretty good selection of cocktails. Staff could be a bit more inviting. Not authentic Spanish.

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

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.

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.

We love the patatas bravas and gambas al ajillo here, as well as the pretty setting.
