Salina's was sexy, the aroma of lilies and roses filled the room, lit candles warmed the room and set the ambiance for a great night. The waiter was very attentive and knew the menu well. He was not overbearing and allowed us to enjoy our dining experience. Salina's was recommended and I would recommend it to all my friends. The food was amazing and very tasty! To end the night, the owner took a shot with us and it was a great way to end our double date.

Couldn't have had a more different experience from the nay-sayers below: everything we had at Salinas was SUPERB... verging on flawless. I have to wonder if they haven't entirely revamped since those abysmal reviews: perhaps even a new chef? Because there's no way any one could be disappointed with the food here, from what we tried- and we ate a lot. The most spectacular dishes were the coles 7 coliflor, the fideos with scallops and rabbit, a wonderful merluza, and pumpkin bread pudding. If in 2011 it wasn't up to snuff, in 2013 there's not a kink left to iron out.

We were a party of five and ordered a wide variety of dishes. Everything was terrific. We all felt that the quality of the food supported its prices. There appears to be several reviews that indicate subpar experiences, but I would absolutely go to have your own experience here. I will return, for sure.

Just discovered Salinas and glad I did. The space is beautifully designed, the food was excellent and the staff and owners couldn't be nicer. We didn't want to leave...and look forward to trying the garden once they start opening the roof.

How this place stays in business I have no idea. We ordered the tapas of gambas (shrimps) and also cauliflower. There were three tiny and tasteless shrimp -- we had to ask for salt. As for the cauliflower, also absolutely tasteless -- and expensive. They serve some kind of second rate sliced bread, but only if you ask. And no butter or olive oil. We also had the chacuterie plate. We should have told the waiter that we did not ask for the small. The room is pretty. But other than that, don't waste your money.

Nice enough place, but for those thinking it has anything to do with food from Mallorca, or more generally, from the Balearic Islands, had perhaps better think again. There is nothing on this menu that is actually a dish specific to the islands, and given the culinary reputation of Mallorca across Spain (especially when it comes to desserts), that is a disappointment. Having said that, the food is ok, but nothing to write home about

Went to check out this place after reading about it in NY Mag and regretted it. The place is well designed but thats about it. After waiting 1 hr for our table (with reservations, even though they told us only a few minutes when we got there) we finally had a chance to sample the either bland or over salted food. I love spanish tapas and really wanted to like this place but it was overall extremely disappointing. The tables are crammed, the hostesses are arrogant and useless. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
