Was in NYC for business and colleague suggested Sainas for dinner meeting. What a great choice. Food was fantastic. We ordered a few small plates and 2 entrees to share between 3 of us. Everything was just perfect. Definitely going back when I am in NYC again.

I found Salinas online, liked what I saw, took a chance. This place did not disappoint! The ambiance, the service, and the food was all that we could've asked for,... More

The place is really romantic, and the decoration (especially the bouquet of roses throughout all the restaurant) amazing. We sat at the bar as we were early and the cocktail were great. For dinner we had some tapas, octopus and a very good flan as dessert. The service was as great as the food, not a cheap place for sure... More

This is the spot for a romantic dinner or one with an old friend. The room is absolutely gorgeous with an intimate feel, dominated by fresh flowers. The roast pork special was amazing. Trust that everything will be good, but don't be late -- reservations only have a 15-minute grace period.

If you are the only one at your table who wants Red Sangria it is not your lucky day. The menu does not offer it by the glass, they offer just a container, for $36, serving three glasses. I ordered from the small plate portion of the menu. I had the Pancetta con Castanas ($16), which is Pork Belly. The... More

Wonderful food - interesting mixtures of flavors. Many meat and fish dishes. A bit light on the vegetarian offerings, but the ones I tried were delicious. Our table had the chicken, duck and dorado to share as mains. We also had the 3 sides. I loved the eggplant. The potatoes were also quite tasty. For appetizers, we had the arancini... More

New York offers thousands of options for great dining so it says a lot that when we returned to NYC for a break having lived here before, we chose Salinas as our first meal. It was a great decision. We adore the ambiance, fresh flowers everywhere and great cocktails - and then when you get to eat, you remember exactly... More

From the special sangria to the appetizers and paella, this restaurant exceeded expectations. Gorgeous ambiance as well. Not cheap though!
