Description: Chef Frank Castro serves nostalgic dishes with his deft culinary signature as well as modern creative interpretations of Spanish cuisine. We have an extensive tapas menu and also serve a full service dinner. One of our signature dishes is the Paella Valenciana - lobster, scallops, mussels, clams, chicken, shrimp, and Spanish sausages with saffron rice. Pair this savory dish with one of the wines from our carefully selected list or with our famous secret-recipe sangria. The decor is reminiscent of a baroque Spanish castle and brings to mind stories of unrequited gothic romances - intimate, sexy and candlelit with an air of mystery. Flor de Sol features live entertainment on Wednesdays from 7:30pm to 10:30pm.

“Yummy tapas, great atmospher, fantastic flamenco band on wednesdays, steer clear of the entrees”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

I've wanted to try this restaurant for quiet a while after learning they had a flamenco band and dancer on wednesdays. We finally went last night with friends. We had a reservation for 4 and the resaurant was pretty packed when we arrived a little late. Our friends were about 20 mins late, but the hostess made sure to still hold our table while the two of us had drinks at the bar while we waited for our friends. Very rare in NYC. The atmospher was great. The service at the bar was phenominal. After being seated, the tapas were delicious and the service there too was above par even though it was packed. The entrees.. not so much. We had a seafood dish that was so fishy it was hard to eat. The steak was ok though. Would definitely stick with just the tapas menu in the future though. The flamenco band, the reason we wanted to come, was amazing. However, they only played for about 15-20 mins every hour, which was kind of disappointing. Wish they had played longer. Still a good time.

“Very enjoyable restaurant”
Reviewed April 12, 2010

We had a wonderful dinner here while traveling to NYC. The restaurant is very intimate, the food was great and the service was fabulous. I enjoyed this area of town and getting away from the crowds a bit. This is a beautiful, romantic and fun restaurant for a night out.
