"My negative experience stems from the lack of tack exercized by a manager. We went to the bar area to listen to music and have drinks and tapas. We sat at a big table, where approximately 6 other people were sitting, at the opposite end. The other party eventually left after they finished dining. About 30 minutes later, a manager came up to us and told us the table was reserved for 8, apologized for their mistake in not marking the table. He told us we didn't have to move, but warned us that other people will be coming to the table. 15 minutes later, another manager told us that another party is coming and that we should move. (There were no other tables available where you can see the stage.) I told her that the other manager has already addressed the issue and that we were told we didn't have to move. The other party came and it was evident they were hostile to our sharing the table. Sevilla cannot be faulted for the hostility of their customers but when the manager herself stands there with the customer and kept looking back at us, every 5 minutes or so, the dining experience turned into a hostile negative experience. I felt pressured to not order additional drinks and not to order additional tapas, and to leave. So based on that, I recommend for Sevilla to train their managers better in customer service."

I am vegan, whenever I go out to eat I usually only get side items because everything has dairy or meat. The menu at cafe sevilla cleary shows you their vegetarian items, very nice. The food was delicious and it didn't take very long from odering to eating!

I love the happy hour specials here. The drinks are delicious and well priced, my favorite is the sangria. Head out after work and make a stop at Sevilla's from 5:30 - 6:30 pm everyday and enjoy the inexpensive yummy tapas and have a drink. If you go on Friday night they have live music. It's a great place to be at. Also ask about the Sevilla rewards card!

Had a Christmas party at Sevilla's years ago. Loved the dancing. Food was good, but with over 200 people attending, some were served cold food. Plus there were other groups attending.

I've been here twice. The first time we went for my husband's birthday. we were seated in the very nice dining room. The service was excellent, though a little slow. The food was amazing. The Tapas are reasonably priced and portioned. The beef empanada, seafood crepe, and lamb shanks with fabada beans deserve special mention. For desert, go with the Walnut Tart. The creme brulee and the flan were forgettable.

The second time I made a reservation for my Mother's birthday. A woman typing on the computer at the reception desk didn't even look up and acknowledge us. She just held up a finger muttering to herself until a very nice maitre 'd helped us. We were taken to the Sports Bar upstairs which was not what I had in mind when I made the reservation. Service was excruciatingly slow but the waitress had LOTS of tables.

Sevilla is amazing. There is formal seating downstairs and then there is more casual seating upstairs by the bar. The food is expensive but delicious. There is also a Flamenco Dinner Show on Friday and Saturday nights. We ate upstairs by the bar. There are two tvs upstairs and some high booths to sit at. We ordered Sangarita which is a mix of sangaria and margarita. It was wonderful. We started off with french bread which came with two dips one being a garlic alilio...yum yum, Then we ordered the Meat Lovers Platter which had lamb, sausage, empanada, and chicken skewers. The only thing that was not excellent was the lamb because it was overcooked. We will definitely be going here again!

Skip the club next door and check out the live Spanish trio in the lounge above the restaurant. It's becoming a hipster hangout. Very cool for the IE.

The atmosphere is lovely, the food was excellent, and the service friendly and accommodating (we got there early). Although pricey, the dinner portions were more than generous and very tasty. The two of us shared a combination plate and there was enough to feed 4, maybe more. I look forward to going back.

This is not your typical restaurant. But, if you like this Mediterranean style food, it is good. My favorite is the fillet. Delicious!!!! A bit too pricey though. Best for a special occasion or if you are trying to impress a first date.
The night club is totally not my style but the bar upstairs is alright I guess. The dance show is very entertaining.

PROS: Atmosphere
CONS: Price. Very specific style of food that isn't for everyone.

There's such a great variety of food at this place! The marinated olives and marinade selection are among the best appetizers I've had anywhere, and the aioli sauce is fantastic. I was more mixed on the entrees - a few of them were delicious, some less so, but all slightly overpriced. Still, it was generally worth our money.

The service, however, was quite slow - once we had a 15-minute wait despite having made reservations, and another time long periods would pass without us seeing our waiter.

This place has a nice atmosphere but the only problem that I noticed was that whenever there would be a club party going on at the same time as another event. They would stick us upstairs on the patio. Other than that the whole dining situation looked like it was romantic with the dimmed lights and great service

PROS: Nice looking atmosphere
CONS: not good for clubbing

The feel of the restaurant was great...quiet and romantic downstairs or louder and more bar-like upstairs. Live music finished off the feel and the food was delicious. A bit pricey, but well worth it. The seafood platter was delicious.

Editorial from

Come for dinner and stay for tango, flamenco or other live music that further enlivens this already vibrant establishment. The rustic dining room offers the flavor of Catalonia, with beamed ceilings, Spanish tiles and bold Mediterranean…
