We wanted to go to this place for a while since we love Spanish food and there is always a line... Well we very much regretted coming - the food is not good at all! We had the croquetas (incredibly bland, the filling mealy with clumps, no ham in sight, the crust greasy), the empanadillas (again zero flavor and greasy), the pulpo (the only decent dish) and the paella Valenciana (a tragedy! It was simply bland rice with tomato sauce mixed with two rubbery pieces of chicken and a handful of mussels and shrimp.) Service was pushy and unfriendly. It is a mystery to my why people actually go there and even stand in line.

After reading reviews for restaurants in the Village I selected Sevilla because of it's devoted following. Four of us arrived excited to experience this little treasure. Boy did that illusion disappear quickly. This place is little more than bland expensive fast food. If your looking for a place that delivers your entre before your half way finished with your appetizer this is the place for you. If your looking for a place where the "chef" checked out and is mailing it in, this is the place for you. One can only hope that someone in charge buys a plane ticket to Spain and discovers what real Spanish is tastes like.

I was just here on Saturday I took my boyfriend there for his Birthday. It was his first time at Sevilla and he loved it! The Paella was GREAT!! The Sangria was AWESOME. I have been in love with this place since 1996. The service is warm and friendly. Come for an early dinner the place gets packed around 6 and 7 on weekends.

Sevilla has always been our favorite go to spot for paella. However, we were there recently and were a bit dissapointed. The paella was a bit flavorless and, the chicken and shrimp in the paella were bland, as if they were just thrown in at the last minute. The clams in green sauce was flavorful but, the portion was much smaller than in past visits. I hope this spot isn't changing after all these years!

Ok so this review is coming from someone who is NOT a picky eater in any way, shape or form. I went to Sevilla expecting a great meal and was extremely underwhelmed. I ordered the Paella de Valenciana (with lobster) and the rice tasted like boxed Goya rice. This is definitely a meal you can share with your date. For apps we ordered the shrimp ajillo (garlic sauce) and the shrimp was NOT seasoned AT ALL. We actually poured some of the leftover garlic sauce into our paella and that gave it a little life. Don't bother ordering the croquetas as there's NOTHING tasty about them. The best part of our meal was the sangria! The restaurant provides a nice classic scene for dates, even though the waiters looked like they could have been exact replicas of the waiters that were working there when the restaurant first opened. I'm open to revisiting and trying a different dish and would definitely recommend giving it a shot because they have plenty of other dishes to offer aside from Paella.

I grew up in BKLYN. Went to Sevilla as a child. I am now 34 years old, living in Florida. I honestly believe that eating at this restaurant is/was the best meal that I have ever eaten in a restaurant! I would recommend it to anyone that wants to enjoy some amazing, quality food!

Came here for mothers day... The steak is delish as are all the appetizers, the sangria and the salad dressing that comes with the food. Would really really recommend this place even though it is not cheap.
