    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.

    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!

    Try the Rosejat Rápida—a paella riff made with short noodles instead of rice—which incorporates poached chicken, chorizo and briny cockles. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011. Read more

    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.

    Fideos negros, steak for 2, fried Brussels sprouts with Meyer lemon yogurt, rice pudding with membrillo. The black fig infused bourbon is exceptional, too (and 100 proof - yowza).

    Loved this spot both for its food and ambiance. Highly recommend if you like Spanish foods or are willing to try them! I had the country bread and calamari salad. Both were very good and filling!

    Great date spot! Romantic and perfect for sharing. Start with a Comandante cocktail! And to eat, try the Pulpo Con Palomitas and the Nuestra Paella (with soccarrat).

    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. Read more

    Enjoy solid tapas in one of the nicest and most romantic outdoor patios with plush seating. Bonus: the outdoor area has a retractable roof in case in rains.

    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 jamón.

    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.

    Croquette appetizer is a must-get. If they're offering a white fish special in a lemon/butter/chile sauce - do it!

    Great service. Sangria is a must try, since they make their ice cubes out of sangria as well (#genius)

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

    Fun selection of tapas, pork belly and patatas stand out. Good cocktails, charming ambiance with roses

    Looks like a small space from outside but it's such a beautiful place filled with flowers inside. A romantic place 😊

    The Paella is a MUST it was Devine not your typical paella at all. Hounding regret it squid ink mixed with the rice gives it the best flavor.

    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
