  • Awful Food!

    Inexcusable for a Spanish restaurant in NYC to be this awful! Good wine and flan. And coffee. Good service. But come on, you surely can do better than this. Frozen vegetables microwaved, tiny shrimp in tasteless sauce out of a jar, rubbery calamari on top of paella, tasteless salad also awful. Shame, shame, shame on you Meson Sevilla!

    My mom and I came in sept for her birthday. I mentioned to them that we had a show and needed our food quick..they did just that we bith got the complete dinner she ordered shrimp in garlic sauce app and salmon for dinner..the shrimp was awesome very flavorful..salmon was well cooked and a great big portion..I ordered stuffed mushrooms for app..they lacked very much in taste..dinner I ordered the chicken emperanza... It was delicious and a nice portion with veggies...bith came with rice for share and it had no flavor at all..for a Spanish place rice should have been a highlight but it wasn't. We didn't give ourselves much time so we were able to get to dessert..but I will def come back I thought service was very good n location was perfect

    We went for dinner after watching 'Once' matinee show....four sisters celebrating one sister's birthday. I chose the restaurant because of the ratings given by other reviewers. I was quite disappointed with the food. The veggie and Valenciana paella were just okay. We ended up taking 2/3 of each dish home. The tapas were unimaginative. We ordered croquettes, lamb chops, patatas, shrimps with garlic. The service was also sub-par. We felt rushed through the meal. I probably would not go back. Too many other restaurants on Restaurant row to try!

    Tapas....great. You don't even have to order an entree. The best part is sharing the tapas and they are genuine Spanish tapas, not invented American ideas of what tapas might be. A little Spanish oasis in the heart of the theatre district.

    Or food was good, especially for the price. But I wasn't thrilled by our tapa selections for appetizers. They were good, but somewhat pedestrian. Maybe I'm spoiled by a recent visit to Spain. You can order prix fixe for $32 per person, but that menu is basically Italian. Although you can order paella for $9 extra. Our cost, off the menu, not prix fixe, with a bottle of wine was $122. About average for a "Restaurant Row" establishment.

    The extensive menu at Meson Sevilla accommodates every appetite. Our party was happy to share several plates of tapas, all of which were delicious. Of special note were the the portobello mushroom in balsamic vinegar and the shrimp in garlic sauce - we emptied the bread basket mopping up both of these! Even though the place was packed, the service was prompt and attentive, and we made it to our show (only 2 blocks away) with time to spare.

    ....in a somewhat dim and dated feeling restaurant. If you just want to sit at the bar and watch world cup and have some albondigas and croquets you won't be disappointed. Sangria was good, too but if you go before a theatre matinee, the place will be a little packed with little old ladies who have nothing better to do than complain!

    Meson Sevilla is right next door to the theater district and has speedy service so it's great if you're in the area to catch a show. The tapas and sangria (made with brandy) were delicious. I recommend the crab stuffed peppers and squid in ink. All the tables are close together so know before it is not private or quiet. As long as this is not an issue for you, I'd recommend this as a great tapas place. Food: B Service: A Price: C Total score: B

    We ordered martinis which took an exceptionally long time to arrive. While waiting for them, our food arrived way too soon and all four tapas at once. Not enough room on the table, some of them got cold while we were eating others. Waiter spoke very poor English and brought the wrong calamari (fried instead of grilled). We complained to the manager, but got no satisfaction. A better manager would have at least given us a free dessert! We have had much better service at Meson Sevilla before, and will give them another chance as the food is wonderful. If this happens again, we will not return.

    Liked some of the food here but there were issues. Two glasses of sangria took 15 minutes to get to our table which was weird considering a) the bar was very close to where we were sitting and b) as we left, we noticed the sangria was pre-made in large jugs. Waiters were snotty in a way that I would never expect at this quaint little Spanish place. Their attitude was almost "French". We liked some of the tapas but will probably not go back.

    My husband and I returned to Meson Sevilla (I believe this was our 4th visit over the years - but the past were quite awhile ago) and we found the fixed price menu outstanding and a bargain, even if you up grade to stuffed lobster ($9 more but worth it). The service was very good and they honor reservations! We will be back! The restaurant is conveniently located just outside the theatre district (a short 1 block walk) and be sure to leave enough time to enjoy your meal. We had a 6 o'clock reservation but arrived a little early - had great food - were not rushed - and left at 7:40 for our 8pm show.

    The best thing about meson Seville is its close proximity to the theater. The servers were friendly, the table large, the sangria tasty, but the food very average. We had the paella, and while it was a large portion with a variety of ingredients and served warm, it was a mediocre meal.

    I can't really say much in favor of the restaurant except that we were able to get a reservation at 6:00 pre-theater when most other places were booked. At the same time, the place was packed and people seemed to enjoy themselves; the food was passable, the service too. Just not a stand out in any way.

    Having enjoyed this Resturant before, on a weeknight, we felt comfortable making a reservation, on a Saturday, before a Broadway show. We arrived five minutes early, 6:25, for a 6:30 reservation. We were made to wait fifteen minutes while the hostess arranged a table for a larger party, walk-ins. Twenty minutes after we arrived, we were lead to a table, and forgotten about. We had to ask"Who is our waiter"? We managed to get one drink, a salad, and bread, and place an order. By 7:30 we still had NOT been served our entrees. we decided to leave. The only positive comment on this evening, was that the Resturant management did the right thing by not charging us for the two drinks.

  • Our worst experience in NYC
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 4/19/2014
    We were seated in the basement part at the wall where we were blocked by 3 other tables; the waiters gave us menus, water & bread over the heads of other 3 tables. Waited for 30 min with no one attending to us (no surprise, it was inconvenient & dangerous); we had to wave the waiter to get more water. I asked to be moved to another table (2 empty tables all this time). After awhile I told our waiter that we were leaving in 20 min to go to a show. We ate both courses at the same time. food was average; didn't show the skill of the chef; frozen veggies were ok, branzino was dry. the waiter never spoke to us, nor answered when we addressed him; We go to NYC 2-3 times every year but have not experience such blatantly poor service ever before.

    We were in NY for Easter Weekend but had found the restaurant ahead of time by surfing internet. The tapas are delicious we shared them. I didn't taste the Paella but aparently it was good. The sangria was great and so was service. The kids (teenagers) really liked it. If ever we're in NY I would think of eating there again.
