Went there with my family for dinner, service a very slow, had only one waiter for the entire dining room. Food was all right, their Paella was too greasy and the quantity was quite small.Hot bread was delicious. Bottom line, you will pay a kings ransom for average food and service.

I haven't yet had the good fortune to go to Spain, but I've traveled to and through several countries in Europe on a number of occasions, and while I make no claims for being a gourmet, I have eaten in several dozen medium to high-end European restaurants, most of which had a wonderful ambiance as well as great food and...

This was our second visit to this location. Our first was some years ago when we went for Sunday brunch. This time, armed with a Groupon, I was determined to try tapas for the first time. Nena was our server and she was a gem. She helped me to understand the menu and the concept of tapas. With her guidance... More

My friends and I enjoyed the tapas immensely. Any choice is great. Don't be afraid to explore other items. Service is great and staff is very knowledgeable, and can explain what many of the items are. The menu items are those found throughout different regions in Spain, and are very well done. Don't overlook live music.

Delicious options for a large group, attentive and efficient service. Short ribs a huge hit! Any tapas a good choice. Convenient and good parking.

I can highly recommend this restaurant and their food is very delicious. This is the third time i've been here and we always get the Traditional Paella Valenciana. We tried there Manchego Cheese & Chorizo Empanadas, WOW! This is really good. There so many things we can try next time come here.

This review is for the Easter Buffet, 4/16/17. I usually avoid holiday buffets--huge crowds, long waits in lines and sub-par food. I'm a retired chef, cooked in Europe for many years and I know what a strain on the kitchen staff such an event brings. But I was visiting relatives in Perris and it was my cousin's birthday so we...

We planned for a birthday lunch here and arrived around 2 p.m. In comparison to the lively music scene in the evenings, it was quiet and relaxing in the afternoon. Cafe Sevilla's decor and ambience reflect a high-end establishment - white tablecloths and cloth napkins and lots of decorative details where ever the eye rests. The table was set with... More

We got there at 9:00 p.m. on a Friday and they immediately found a quiet, cozy booth in the corner for my wife and me.
