  • Recommended dishes: Crujiente mahons, shrimp with garlic, jamn Ibrico, braised tripe, pumpkin-and-chicken soup, poached octopus, rosejat rpida, grilled chicken, suckling pig, torrija caramelizada.
  • 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.
  • The service was fantastic, the food was amazing, but the smell of fresh flowers is what put this place on a whole other level.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Wonderful ambiance, perfect for date night! Dimly lit dark wood dining room with retractable glass roof. They also have gorgeous roses from Ecuador everywhere that they fly in on a daily basis
  • The wine is excellent
  • Everything was spectacular. Amazing drinks and food.
