Great food; great service; great atmosphere – Awesome restaurant. The service and food were outstanding. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic evening. Definitely the place to take your wife or a date you are trying to impress.
Good Times! – Where else can you eat great food upstairs and then go downstairs to be transformed into another world with live music? All I have to say is tapas in the bar upstairs (get the dates) with live music late night, and salsa dancing with live music downstairs. Amazing time to be had, feel like you are in Europe!
Great tapas restaurant with delicous food and fantastic atmosphere. – Sevilla was the perfect evening for my husband and I. The portions were perfect and allowed us to try many things on the menu. The prices were very reasonable. The service was excellent. Everything about the atmosphere was enjoyable: music, decor, very romantic. Most of all the food was AMAZING. Very flavorful and unique. Even simple items such as the fresh bread and dipping sauces was to die for. Great location in Gaslamp, close to many other bars too. You have to try this restaurant.
Best TAPAS in town! – I must tell you, I have been a frequent patron at Cafe Sevilla and I am always content when I leave.
How can you not love the romantic, authentic ambiance and the friendly bar staff? I would HIGHLY recommend the Cheese Fundido & Shrimp Brochetas... ohh, what lovely presentations!
Wonderful atmosphere and tasty food! – We chose Cafe Sevilla for a less formal option while at a conference out in San Diego and had a great time. The atmosphere was really nice and the food was WONDERFUL! I would recommend this to anyone!
Great cocktails, good food, horrible service and management – I have been to Cafe Sevilla several times and for the most part really enjoyed it...until this past time. I used to work in a restarant and understand that the server's job is to upsell but our server took it much further. We ordered a round of mojitos and asked for the regular rum. Throughout the evening he pushed other upgrades to us but we passed. When the bill came, there was nearly $40 in upgraded rum fees. When we brought it up to the server, he said that he ordered us the top shelf and we asked to speak with the manager. The manager said he would take care of it and then when the bill came back, it was more expensive!!! Then he disappeared and we couldn't get a hold of him again. It was the most ridiculous experience ever. It took 45 minutes of back and forth to clear up the mess. The tapas are great and so are the cocktails but the constant push to upsell and poor taste of the server to charge us for stuff that wasn't ordered ruined my experience at Cafe Sevilla.
Awesome tapas, intoxicating sangria – San Diego in May allowed me to sample some of this wonderful restaurant's sangria and paella. The atmosphere is electric, everyone having a great time, and you can see why. The food is great, paella was amazing; almost as good as being back in Spain. Sangria was good enough to make the night a bit blurry after dinner. Do try this place, it is worth it!
Excellent service, curteous professional staff, exciting dinner show, good time was had by all. – What a wonderful dining experience we had. The food was excellent and served promptly while still hot. The service staff was very attentive and responsive to every request.The flamenco show is definitely one you don't want to miss. The Sangria is out of this world. Needless to say I had my share of it
This was our second visit and our out of town guests were impressed and had a great time.
