What ever you wnt to so. Enjoy yourself. I love the live music. The food is great . The Ambiance is romantic. If you like exotic foods this is the place to begn to venture. My husband had rabbit. I stuck with the Paella which was delicious.. drinks were great and danced all night.

Went for lunch hoping to have food like what we ate in Spain. Not even close. They need to rethink their pace they serve the food. We ordered tapas and were disappointed the were served all at once and were not that hit. But what really surprised us was the palleya came first and within 10 minutes of ordering this... More

We had dinner here during the festival of lights. Love the idea that you can order small plates (tapas) or larger portions for sharing. Love that there are vegetarian and vegan offerings clearly distinguished on the menu. The only issue we had is that everything seems to have a lot of garlic, which we don't tolerate well. The waiter helped... More

Share a number of the small plates and pair your feast with a nice bottle of Spanish Wine -- splurge with a bottle of the 2011 Muga! This is a busy place so it is wise to have reservations.

We had a weekend lunch here with a party of six. Although we did not make a reservation, our hostess Drea was very welcoming and accommodating. We weren't too sure what to order or how much food to get but our server, Eric, was extremely knowledgeable and had great suggestions. Excellent service and attentiveness! We got two appetizers and the... More

The food was absolutely terrible. You only two choices for your entre and both were over done and dry. The entertainment was very short kind of a teaser. First time I went to Cafe Sevella they had a wide menus and better entertainment. I don't recommend this restaurant at all.

This was my second visit to this place over an 18 month period. Both times, the service was good and the food was fantastic. Having recently traveled to Spain, the tapas are pretty authentic. I did not try the paella as the portions looked huge. You MUST try their house sangria. Muy bueno!

Service was excellent on this Friday evening. Flat iron steak was perfect! No entertainment on Friday nights but a live band from the bar area emanated through the dining room. Wish it would have been all Spanish music but it wasn't.

Café Sevilla is located in downtown Riverside, but not exactly in the center city. It's on the Southeast side of the 91 freeway, so it can be missed by the casual visitor. It's well worth the short trip to come here. They offer traditional Spanish cuisine and, lately have added a few Argentine items, like empanadas, which are delicious meat... More
