Salon de Tapas

They had a large variety of tapas. We ordered 7 and soup. All were well really good and a good size portion for tapas. We sat outside which was very nice. Waiters were great. Would definitely return. It was much nicer than some other tapas places we'd been to in the past.

I have come to this place a few times a year fro about 3 years, I think the food is great, havent tried everything.. but the escargot is one of my faves. The drinks are great, pitchers of sangria/mojitos are pricey, but powerful. The place is small, as are most places in this area, but nice and cozy. good for brunch with a girl, or the fellas.

The place is small and really not anything to write home about in terms of ambience. The food is merely OK and, again, nothing to write home about. I definitely wouldn't go out of my way to eat at this place if I were you and I, personally, would not return.

A friend introduced me to this restaurant two days ago and I returned the very next night. What delectable food in a cute, candelit atmostphere with smiling service all at an incredible, incredible deal. Both nights I spent $80 for a cozy dinner for twoand enjoyed three tapas (of generous portions), a paella, and a bottle of wine (tip and tax included)! I can only describe some of the [select]ions as ambrosia: clams with garlic sauce, fresh anchovies on melba toast, split/flowered grilled shrimp. With almost every bite, my mouth exploded with the flavors of garlic, lemon, and sea, and I was in food heaven. A few other dishes fall short of this but are solid fillers and enjoyable nonetheless: the paella, the croquettes. We enjoyed plenty of nectar to augment these delights and chose from a good [select]ion of ruedas, albarinos, and vinho verde (and a couple bottles of pinot noir and pinot grigio for those who don't want Spanish wines with their Spanish meal) we had a crisp rueda one night and a round rioja with banana flavors the next. Both were less than $20 per bottle! The only downside is its location in middle Village is well-trodden by careening NYU students, but not to worry they bypass this gem for Senior Swankys down the block.

We fell upon this place by coincidence last Friday night. We waited around 15 minutes for a table, not bad considering the place is pretty small. When we were seated, we were given some bread with olive oil and olives which was nice. The Sangria was excellent and BIG. We ordered shrimp in garlic sauce, calamari, Pulpo and tortilla. We loved them all. The staff was also very nice. We will definetly return.

I ate at Salon de Tapas on Friday night and was absolutely disappointed. I always order a few tapas basics (tortilla, chorizo, polpo) as a comparison to other restaurants and was astonished at how poor everything was. Shrimp and scallops were undercooked, and their briny taste was only drowned out by the reek of garlic in the sauce for the shrimp. The pesto sauce for the scallops combined to something truly uninspired. The polpo al gallego was also half-raw and unspiced. Tortilla espanola was greasy and burnt, with almost no egg. Quail was at least marinated but also overdone. Asparagus tasted canned and was too salty to eat more than a bite. All flavors were either totally overdone (especially garlic) or, unfortunately, too nonexistent to hide an inability to cook shellfish. This was one of my first meals in years where I couldn't eat enough to finish dinner and had to find a second meal, and I am disappointed. I've yet to find a Village restaurant where I couldn't find even one thing to praise. Service was decent, I suppose. The ambience was nice. I've been told they have a beautiful garden but we ate inside.
