Great place I have read a few reviews on this place most are good and a few bad but hey every one has there own taste and opinion. Our group went in for tapas and sangria we wanted to do the spanish thing and let me tell you the food was the best I had in a long time . We had octopus,shrimp in garlicsauce ,meat empanadas a few others i cant remember and we split a paella with the tapas and 2-3 pitchers of sangria. The food was great and the service was good a bit slow but the place was packed and it is the holiday season in the end it was all good and I strongly recomend this restaurant just try to avoid Saturdays and the 6-8 time because thats the time all the theatre goers are rushing to eat. If you want to enjoy Meson Sevilla go after 8 eat drink and enjoy.

A friend and I went for dinner last night. Based on other reviews, we were really looking forward to sampling the tapas. We ordered 3 dishes; 2 were excellent, and the third (mushrooms stuffed with crabmeat) was pretty good. The sangria was delicious, but they had trouble mixing a martini properly. We had to ask the hostess to send the waiter back to our table to get it fixed. Trouble really began when we ordered a fourth item from the tapas menu. We waited 15 minutes, no more food, and our waiter no longer in sight. We waited another 10 minutes, and decided if our dish (chorizo) had not been ordered, we would cancel it and order dessert instead. Other waiters walked past our table, but completely ignored us. Another 15 minutes (40 in total) passed, and my friend (who was facing the back of the restaurant) saw our waiter walk from the kitchen to the bar area. We watched, but he did not come back. We finally stood up, put on our coats, and walked to the front, to look for the hostess. As we rounded the corner, we saw to our surprise, that our waiter was now behind the bar. He ignored us, but another waiter rushed up behind us, and handed us the bill. The hostess came up to us, and we explained how long we had waited with no service, and no more food. She apologized and offered to get the manager. Much to our surprise the waiter/bartender was also the manager. It took nearly 10 minutes to get him to talk to us. We explained that while we would pay the check, we could not leave a tip, based on his poor service. He did not apologize and said "What do you expect me to do; it gets busy." (The restaurant was half empty) He did not offer to comp anything on the bill. I would give this restaurant a zero for service, but the hostess was nice. This is not a place we would visit again.

Went here for lunch with a friend from out of town. Place looks old and not well taken care of. Both me and my friend had the lunch special. We both had the soup of the day, tortellini in chicken broth, which was too salty. Then my friend had the penne with broccoli which was just ok. I had the paella marinera...big mistake. That was not a paella, just pre-cooked yellow rice mixed with seafood.

On holiday in NYC with my wife for my 30th birthday. Decided to go for tapas on the actual evening (halloween night). Although it was not very busy due to the halloween festivities, the service was great and the choice of tapas very extensive and very very tasty. The sangria was also fantastic. Definitely the best tapas restaurant in the area by far.

After reading the reviews on Citysearch and menupages.com for Meson Sevilla, I asked my boyfirend to take me here for my birthday. I studied in Spain for a summer during college and was in the mood for tapas, drinks and good conversation. I wish I had gone elsewhere. We ordered the tortilla espagnola, chorizo parrillo and paella valencia. The tortilla was served piping hot (tortilla is supposed to be served room temperature), but was tasty. The chorizo was the best part, garlicy and yummy. The paella valencia was poor. The shrimp and scallops were fishy and should have been used several days before the paella rice was salty and bland. The only item in the paella that was decent was the chorizo (which is not surprising). The rioja was ok. With regard to the bread, we initially were served warm crusty bread however after that was gone, we were served generic, old french bread. The ambiance is fine, nothing remarkable.

Went back last night for shrimp in green sauce. This place still does a good solid job with food, service and value. Well worth a visit.

All I have to say is that Meson Sevilla Restaurant is the best Spanish Restaurant in NYC. No questions about it!
