On a street filled with so many crowded and noisy restaurants and so many tourists, Meson Sevilla is an oasis of calm. Down a flight of stairs and set back from the hustle and bustle of 46th Street, you enter a long bar room. To the left is the dining room. Only two, we were seated at a comfortable table for four. We had the red sangria, filled with fruit and with a nice brandy kick. We shared the Pulpo A La Gallega, a grilled octopus with potato, served piping hot and simply splendid. My husband had the Paella Valenciana and I had the Chicken and Rice. The entrees were authentic, moist, and delicious. For dessert, we shared the Nohila (?), a flan with cinnamon and coffee liquer. It was heavenly with a slight perfume from the liqeur. I asked our waiter, who couldn't have been nicer or more attentive (and had opinions, which we always welcome) about the dessert. He explained what it was and how they made it. Because I had complimented it, our waiter comped us to the dessert, a very nice gesture. We will definitely be back.

I went to Meson Sevilla with a friend and we both really enjoyed it! I've been to Spain to stay with friends who live there a few times and feel that the food here reminds me of my experiences in Madrid. We tried several tapas and they were all delicious and the staff were helpful and friendly and provided wonderful service. I look forward to returning soon.

This has got to be my favorite Tapas/ Spanish restaurants in NYC. No one in New York has Tapas as big as they do and the prices are fantastic. Most tapas restaurants make you leave hungry, but not Meson Sevilla. I also love the old world charm of the place rustic, old, cozy and warm, some thing you do not see in todays modern restaurants. Try this place order 2-3 tapas you will leave full and not break the bank.

Patatas Bravas to die for. Delicious serrano ham. Their tapas list is long and delectable. A little pricy for Entrees, but I'm sold on the tapas. Love it.

Frankly, the food was unimpressive, given the prices and small portions. The artichokes were tasty but too fatty, the cheese and ham platter tasted like supermarket food, the tuna tapas were filled with fish paste and had more fried dough than fish. I found the service to be quite lacking. The waiters were very pushy in selling drinks (refusing to accept orders until they took drink orders) and not bring water until we asked for it twice. I was surprised that they added a gratuity for a party of 6 as well. There are so many good restaurants in the area, and you could do better.

I came here before going to the theater on a Friday night. The service was very good - the waiters were attentive and even sang 'happy birthday' to me. The food, however, was average. In our opinion, the chef seemed to be better at cooking the Italian dishes than Spanish, as the paella was definitely NOT true paella (and it is possible to cook a good, quick paella), however most of the pastas ordered were tasty. The appetizers were ok. The best thing was the bruschetta. And the flan wasn't good. Overall I'd say this place is only average in terms of food.
