Happy hour was a great deal.
Happy hour was a great deal. Paella was delicious. Every dish was extremely flavorful. And the flour less chocolate cake is a must try! Staff is attentive and cheerful. The manager even came by to introduce herself. Only down side is parking. Would definitely return.

As a first time visitors to
As a first time visitors to this restaurant we were very impressed by the atmosphere, food and service. We were there on a Saturday night and although in the main dining area, we could hear the flamenco music and dancers from the showroom area. Will definitely return and probably will book in the showroom.

Overall the ambiance is GREAT;
Overall the ambiance is GREAT; very unique interior and nice lighting effects throughout. Love the concept of tapas; but felt it was a bit pricy for what you were getting for. But overall the food was tasty. On some nights they have live performances so you may have a difficult time carrying on a conversation depending upon where you are sitting. Drinks weren't as stiff as I thought they would be either. Would probably end up coming back here again.

Good experience, tapas give you a chance to sample lots of different things. The waitress explained everything and was honest and dead on in making recommendations.

Great tapas spot
What a great place. We had a gift certificate for the flaminco dancing show but went on a night when there was no show. Our server was stellar. She was training a new emplyee, so she was attentive to our table and great with her trainee. Her suggestions were perfect. the Barbacoa margharita was fantastic.

Like taking a trip to Spain
I have come here for years. A very nice getaway from the normal restaurants.

Lots of choices
The great thing about tapas is that there are so many things to choose from that jut about anyone you're with can find something they'll enjoy. Cafe Sevilla is just that place. The food, the service, the wine, the ambiance, and the music are just what you need for that romantic night out or hanging out with friends.

Sevilla is a "Spanish Themed" restaurant but, the weird thing is that they put like a mexican hot sauce on the Paella? They have Tropical music (Loud). I expected traditional Paella and at least a Spanish guitar sound somewhere - not timbales, congas, and merengue music in the bar area. Isn't that what theclub downstairs is for?

Great place great food!
Sevilla is a wonderful place for any occasion. I went there for my 21 st birthday and am always impressed by their food and service. There staff knows their menu and can answer any questions easily. There drink menu is extensive and their delicious. I would recommend this place to everyone. Especially the bacon wrapped dates!
6/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went because I was meeting a first date. She has been there before, so I went along with it. From the receptionists to the server, to the food, it was fantastic. Bacon wrapped dates stuffed with blue cheese? Are you kidding me! I am now craving that delicacy! The atmosphere was perfect. I was not fond of my seat, so I asked my server if we can move. She moved us with no questions, but with a smile. This place is just like a club, but without people just jumping around like animals bumping into you. Great energy levels. I can't wait to go back.

Eat here often
We eat here about every 2 months and always enjoy our meal. We order tapas and now have our favorites, but do try new ones. Our current favorite are the stuffed dates wrapped in bacon and served with a sweet sauce. This time we were there before 7pm and there was a happy hour which offered several tapas at half price, so not only was our meal super, the price was great too. I noted a scenic view, well its a view of Pine Ave, but the street is lively and at night there are colored lights so it is scenic in its own way.

Nice Place to Visit
Food: Consistant (do not do go during their busy times or before their club opens next door), tapas style, american authentic, red meat is ok, seafood is good, and house sangria is ehh... (flavored ones are way better), tap water is filtered, quantity does not fit the bill.
Parking is annoying and expect to pay, since they don't validate. (Always an excuse that they ran out...I've eaten at this location at least 2x per year for over 5 years)
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'll be back!!
Great mojitos, sumptuous food - the short ribs are unbelievable - the dessert to die for!
6/27/2013 4:00:00 PM

We spent a wonderful evening with old friends. Food was excellent. Ambiance pleasant and conducive for long conversation.

Best Anniversary Ever
I took my girlfriend for our 3rd Anniversary Celebration. I had ordered flowers and they took care of them until we got there. My girlfriend was surprised. We both Loved the food. The Drink Menu was very good. The Friendly Servers and Hostess took care of us perfectly. They helped me make my girlfriend's and my night Memorable. Thank you to all the Staff.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first visit and it was fantastic! To have Iberico ham on the tapas menu was a wonderful surprise and it tastes as I remembered it from my last visit to Spain. The sangria, choice of tapas, made for a great night.

Found Cafe Sevilla on-line,
Found Cafe Sevilla on-line, read all previous customer reviews and was pleased with the end result. Our server was very helpful in recommending various tapas and entrees, which were all delicious! We had a party of six, so reservations were recommended. We arrived a little early and were seated right away. Service was excellent and the Manager came by after our meals to find out how everything was. Will definitely return. Thank-you!

Sevilla-You’ll be back
If you've ever tried, Sevilla you will probably be sure to make a reservation the next time you visit the Long Beach area.
The food is excellent We tried the 5 course meal this time around, and it did not disappoint. From the great appetizers to the dessert, your taste buds will be titillated. My favorite was the pork in wine sauce and my sister favored the excellent chorizos.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must in Long Beach!
If you've never visited a spanish restaurant before than you're in for a big treat! It is amazing! The food is delicious! Gteat for sharing amongst the table. What you'll miss is having a bigger stomach, honestly. Both the white and red sangrias are perfect to accompany the yummy tapas! The sangrias had a cinnamon kick to it which gave it a nice treat for us that are spanish cuisine lovers! I've heard that the shows are pretty good too, wish we had dined later to enjoy that too. Happy hour is from 5-7 M-F where you can enjoy special price sangria and drinks as well as tapas and other appetizers. Please don't leave without trying the queso fundido, you won't regret it!

Wonderful first visit
My wife and I came here for our Anniversary, over Labor Day weekend. What a wonderful dinner, enjoyable evening and great ambiance. I do recommend Sevilla for a first or 1000th date!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good but pricey
The food was good. The server was great and everything struck me as being about 25-30% too expensive - $115 for 3 small gazpachos, 3 tapas, 1 entre shared by three people and 1 glass of sangria. Thankfully there was no charge for the water.

Fun place to eat
This is a fun place to eat. Servers are fantastic and helpful.

Had an amazing time with friends, the music and service was outstanding, we felt spoiled by the waitress, and safe all times. We are definitely returning. THANKS
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our foursome relaxed with a leisurely dinner of wine and tapas. Each dish was tastier than the last. We were not rushed in any way, and our servers were helpful in making drink suggestions. There was enough in each dish to share, except that the lamb chops came three to the dish, so that we had to cut them to share equitably. Not a major problem, but it would have been nice if we had been asked if we'd like four with an additional charge. The seviche was divine, the dates stuffed with blue cheese amazing. We also shared the charcuterie plate as a starter. There is live music every night, but not so loud that we couldn't carry on a conversation.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for girls night!
This was my first time at Cafe Sevilla, making reservations ahead was an smart choice and I recommend it to anyone who hates waiting to be seated. We tried the sangria flights and they were so delicious and offered us a great selection of the drink menu. It was only $5 for 4 different types of sangria. Tapas are the perfect way for everyone to be able to try a little bit of everything whiteout paying a ridiculous amount of money and over-eating.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We keep coming back
We enjoy the food choices and the fact that you don't have to overindulge to feel you've had enough to eat. It's great to dine on tapas before going to a concert.

Great place for a date, good
Great place for a date, good food, live music. The outside is crawling with police, make sure you call a cab.

Highlight of the Weekend
Decided to explore Long Beach with my BF to celebrate a special occasion and discovered Café Seville on Pine Street. There was dancing, delicious tapas (I especially enjoyed the bone marrow and oxtail), and an outstanding musical performance by Duende Camaron. Café Seville was definitely the highlight of our evening. TIP: When we stopped by at 9:35 pm the restaurant and bar area was full with the exception of a few tables with a "Reserved" sign on them. The party of 2 in front of us was put on a waiting list, but before the hostess could even ask our name, I went to my Opentable app and booked a table in 10 seconds at 9:45 pm with an outstanding location near the stage. It worked like a charm--no wait list for us! Thank you Opentable!

Sevilla is great!
One of the best overall experiences we've had in a while. The tapas are delicious and the service attentive without being intrusive. You must try them out and make sure to have the dates.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We booked a table for 7 when we knew guitarists would be playing. They provided soothing, lovely background music for a romantic evening. The wait staff was extremely efficient and friendly, and the food was outstanding--the ajillo sauce is great, the meatballs were delicious, the grilled lamb chops were perfect. The French bread and fried calamari were wonderful, and the mushroom and fig coca was a surprising treat. We travel to Spain and eat in tapas bars in the US whenever we can. This one's among the best.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food, go early for quiet
Sevilla has excellent food; everything our group of 3 shared was delicious. I never order Pulpo a la Gallega because nobody ever gets it right. NOT the case here-it was perfectly cooked! The short ribs and flat-bread with figs made us happy. The restaurant itself hosts live flamenco and classical guitar, so it's too loud to talk once the music starts. Go early if you want converse with your date. The front patio allows smoking, so, while you can escape the music on the patio, you are at the mercy of brainless bimbos using menus to fan smoke away from themselves towards everyone else not stupid enough to live with addictions we can't control. They also own a club -- next-door/upstairs so the place gets over-run by partiers later in the pm.
