    Excellent food and service once again! The only negative was the skirt steak with mushrooms tasted like beef stroganoff...not good or up to their usual standards.

    The food was excellent and the service was great. They take their time and explain the menu. The menu is in Spanish and English, but it still helps if you are not familiar with Spanish food.

    Skip the mushrooms in garlic...they used to be wonderful, but this time they were flavorless...must have changed the recipe. Get the olive bread with aioli, the manchego and the bacon wrapped dates. Also the flat iron steak with blue cheese. Order extra olive bread and aioli...YOU'LL EAT IT!!!

    Dined on 9/5/2014
    We arrived at the restaurant at 6:40PM on Friday, 90% of the sitting was open, however hostess seated us by the door despite my repeated request to be seated at the booth. Her response was that those are reserved for party of 4 or more, and I asked to be seated to the larger table next to us, to which she said it was reserved. OK. I understand, and I am OK with this, only if it was TRUE. Later I find many people that came AFTER us, being seated at the booth (ofcourse, I am talking about 4~5 couples, less than party of 4) and the larger table next us (which was supposed to be reserved) was left empty until the very end of the night. Do not sacrifice customer satisfaction trying to squeeze in as many people as possible. and Don't Lie!

    This place had a cool vibe n colorful, artful ambience. The service was great n the food was delicious. My only qualm about the food was that the Paella could've used more rice Most Paella dishes r dense on a full bed of Saffron n rice but here they were kind of skimpy. Other than that all the food was from the tapas to the rice to the main course n dessert. I would recommend a changing station for parents w/newborns like myself, could be more family/baby friendly. Overall, Cafe Sevilla was excellent!!!

    Twas a vibrant, energetic place for dinner smack dab in the middle of the scene in Long Beach! Food was delicious, our server Maria was absolutely wonderful and have great suggestions. We sat outside in the patio and lots of hustlin & bustlin around at dinner time right there on Pine Ave. Quite the list of sangrias which were tasty as well!

    There was a mix up with attempting to make a reservation for dinner while also attempting to attend the dance/entertainment provided. While making reservations online, I am instructed to make accommodations for the live entertainment at the restaurant. Once at the restaurant, I am informed that accommodations for the entertainment are made online. The hostess said she would give us the number to the "box office" but never returned. Going to see the dancers is a big part of the reason I chose restaurant to celebrate my mother's birthday and am still interested obtaining tickets, if that is what is necessary, to be a part of this show.

    We have visited this beautiful restaurant on numerous occasions . In fact, we are members of their frequency club. Our most recent visit gives us pause for returning. Our waiter/server was nin existanr. No attentive - had to ask bus person to get him to order more wine. When we pointed out calamari was not at all up to standards-miniscule meat, bready, greasy, and overcooked - he just said he's tell rhe chef then took our quarter eaten dish away after asking:"all done"? Never made any attempt to replace or remove from our bill. I didn't want to make a scene as this was my wife and my few romantic dinners out. Ten dollars wasted. Sad as we really like the place but probably won't return. Have they changed ownership?

    The food is what sets this place apart, which is good as the service and atmosphere were somewhat lacking. They were out of our first two drink options, which was not the right way to start, before the waitress mentioned that all of the specialty Sangrias were unavailable. The ceviche with the mussels was fantastic. The scallops simply melted in your mouth. Next the I would go earlier ad once the salsa dancing started you couldn't hear yourself think.

    Having been to Spain recently, Sevilla in particular, we wanted to recreate the exceptional culinary experience. We discovered Cafe Sevilla in Long Beach. We booked our reservation with ease, thank you open table! We sat in a quiet, romantic corner on the outside patio. Our server was excellent. The drinks were fabulous. And the food was unbelievable! We will definitely be back!

    Went to this restaurant with my boyfriend as a pre- Spain trips date night. Had the living social 5 course meal with karaff of sangria. The sangria was ok, the food was heavy bit good. My favorite was the cerviche and the meatball soup. Kinda cool u could finish your meal while watching the show but we asked twice if they could take the paella we were done with out of the way ando aot they never did. The flan was alright. The flamenco show was good but u have to sit upfront or u can only see from their waist up

    We dined outside after an afternoon Saturday matinee at the Carpenter Center in Long Beach. Service was fair, our waiter suggestions seemed like he was more interested in padding our tab versus really helping us order. Our meal was VERY good and reminiscence of our time in Barcelona. We split a few tapas and then a small seafood paella.

    Great seafood, excellent options, attentive servers and an excellent selection of Spanish wines. Tried the meal for two and found the tapas were a bit over-rich and the paella a bit thin so be selective. Bread for the table would have been appreciated as would coffee offered at meal end. This was my second visit and most certainly not the last. Absolutely worth your time to check it out.

    Tapas are always good to share, and I feel like I can try more things on the menu. The Abondigas meatballs and the bone marrow something or other were very tasty. It's got a salsa band that plays later in the evening, so this is not the place to have a quiet romantic evening to talk about your hopes and dreams. Because its centrally located, this is the spot to start your caraaaaazy night on the town in the LBC.

    RSVPing was very easy via mobile and when I had to change times last minute, it was just a snap. Service was ok, but I won't blame the whole place, just the waiter at the time. He lagged and I had to call him back ever now and then to receive things. He didn't check on us once. Other than that, its noisy inside, live bad is great ,music great and food passes!

    We Arrived Saturday night without a reservation at 9 PM. The hostess basically refused to seat us without a reservation. So I went to open table and made a reservation in 15 minutes and got a table. The service was a little slow, but probably because it was very busy. They had a live band and a lot of dancing. It was quite lively. Definitely a fun place to hang out.
