I hadn't been to this place for years, but recently had little time pre-theatre...tapas and wine at the bar were outstanding and the servoce could not have been better.

The diners in our party were generally satisfied with the restaurant , food and service. My meal was just so so and the environment was very dated. I would return once more to try other dishes. I'll just say it wasn't an exciting experience and with so many other choices in NYC, this would not be at the top of my list.

I really enjoy eating at Meson Sevilla when we are in the area. We go for the tapas which are really very good, especially the cod croquettas and the shrimp with garlic. I was disappointed by the patatas bravas on this last visit. Traditionally, they should be crispy on the outside, creamy inside and served with a spicy sauce. These failed in all respects. But everything else was delicious, the service was excellent and they were well-experienced to get us out win time for the play.

Service was ok - except that one person in our party didn’t receive his entre untill 15 minutes after the rest. We all had to give some of our food to him while he waited. The seafood was good - paella was a little salty but still tasty. Large portions to take home for another meal. We got out in plenty of time to make the show at 8 with a 6 pm reservation.

We spent a Valentines Day early evening at this delightful Spanish restaurant in Restaurant Row. Four tapas. A bottle of Marquez Aldeanueva rojias plus desert lasted comfortably through 2 hours of conversation.

Crab cakes with a roumillade sauce, olives, pulpo a la Galencia, and Queso Con Membrillo were all delightful.

Desert was Crema Catalans (described by the waiter as “Spanish cream brûlée”) was an unexpected pleasure, soft and very creamy with just the right touch of orange.

A great spot for dinner before Hamilton. Attentive service without being pushy or overbearing, paella hit the spot without being too heavy before the show.

The price fixe lunch is a great deal. The salad alone is big enough for a meal. The seafood paella and the shrimp in garlic sauce are delicious. The desserts are excellent too. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We went to Meson Sevilla for a pre-theater dinner on a Saturday night. We had all tapas - though many other tables seemed to be ordering the paella, which looked quite good. They do have a large selection of tapas, including most of the "classics" as well as some less typical choices. The food was tasty - certainly not the best tapas we've ever had, but also not the worst. Reasonable portion sizes for the price. The service was excellent and very fast - they definitely are experienced at getting you out to the theater on time. Overall, very enjoyable, reasonably priced, and quick. If you like Spanish food, a good choice for pre-theater on Restaurant Row.

Seating was very prompt! I ordered a cocktail (a vodka Collins) and what I got was more of a bay breeze. I also got the pallea. The rice, vegetables, and chorizo were delicious, but the chicken and seafood tasted overcooked. It wasn’t a bad meal, but given all of the options in the area, I’m not sure I’d return.

It was my husband's Birthday, and we love visiting New York, so I searched a few spots online in on restaurant row and found this gem. The food was amazing, we went with the tapas menu, which allows you to try several dishes presented on small plates. We had the octopus, calamari, lamb chops, shrimp and potatoes. The sangria was amazing and they even sung happy Birthday to him with a small piece of Flan which was also amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant.

if you love tapas this place did the trick. We had the octopus and lamb as well as traditional Spanish tapas and all were very tasty. The wine recommended was also very good. We were going to a play so we did not have time for desert but we will go back and try them out. Overall a very nice pre-dinner theater place to visit.

Took my wife here for her birthday. We've been here before but it was always for drinks and tapas at the bar, never dinner. When I suggested it she said yes because we knew at least the tapas we're good so we expected dinner to be the same. Meson Sevilla lived up to our expectations; plates full of great food, a wait staff that makes sure you're glass is full and a relaxing atmosphere. Some reviews on other sites may say the interior is dated but I find it reminicent of old Madrid. Definitely will be back again

We enjoyed our meal at this restaurant very much. We were given a comfortable table in a corner for our party of 6. Ambience was fantastic, food was delicious, servings ample, service attentive. One server initially balked when we asked for take home boxes for the food left unconsumed, but he did bring them to us and my niece and her friend were quite delighted that they'd get to enjoy leftovers the next day. Overall a positive dining experience. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone- and we'd all dine there again.

Don’t order the paella. Not even the rice is of the right kind. The dish was bland and there was sand in one of the clams! The tapas were okay overall. Some were quite good. If you are looking for an authentic Spanish fare that is not the place.... on the plus side the service was prompt and attentive enough and the wine was quite affordable.

Very busy restaurant in the Theater District. The tables are a bit cramped, but in a cozy type way. The restaurant is small, but lively and if you are going before a show you need to make reservations. The service was fast and efficient. The menu has an excellent assortment of tapas and paella dishes to share, as well as other heartier entrees. The wine selection was slightly limited. It was an enjoyable evening and I would definitely go back.
