Been coming to Seville for over 20 years.
Can’t complain about much. Wait staff efficient & helpful. Love George the manager. My go to dish turkey burger deluxe. Love this on a warmed pita. Hubby loves the wide selection of eggs.
The ONLY complaint maybe a little update on salad bar.

Thank ebmom48

Until next time,

We stopped by for a late dinner. There were not many patrons at 10 PM but we hadn’t eaten anything. Parking is always interesting because of the lot configuration.

Once seated, we began to notice the decor was old, tables scratched and worn, and chairs needed repair. The waitress was quick to take our order but getting served took time. She didn’t come very often to refresh our drinks or check on our meal.

The food was very fresh and served hot. The amount of food was more than adequate for the hungriest of patrons. The flavor was lack luster because of no seasoning, especially salt. The pastrami cheese melt was tasteless and the amount of juice made the bread on the open faced sandwich soggy. The coleslaw was delicious with not too much mayonnaise.

If you need a late night snack, they have everything on the menu but it may not be up to standard on taste.

We're sorry to see that your time with us was anything less than spectacular. Our place has a vintage feel to it that we enjoy preserving, but we understand it might not be everyone's cup of tea. It's unfortunate that it took a bit for you to receive your food, and that you weren't absolutely wowed by your meal. Again, we understand that everyone has different tastes, but we never want anyone to leave feeling dissatisfied. We're always looking for ways to improve, so thank you so much for this feedback, and we hope we'll have the chance to impress you in the future.

Take care,
Seville Diner

I went here around noon time after a business meeting. I ordered coffee, pancakes and two scrambled eggs on the side. Food was hot, tasty and it came out very quickly.

Even the coffee was decent.

Gave this place excellent review back in May of 2014 expressing our love for their shrimp with crabmeat stuffing. Been back many times without incident till a few weeks ago. We ordered our usual and the waitress got it all wrong! After having the salad bar and a cup of soup she serves us our meal. It was grilled shrimp on toast! NOT AT ALL WHAT WE ORDERED! Told her she made a mistake and she took it back to the kitchen. Then she returned and asked if we wouldn't mind if they just piled the crabmeat on top? We told her no, we wanted it served in the usual way we always got it. Called over the fellow that is always walking around that knows us from being in there so often and explained the problem. He goes into the kitchen and we think the problem is solved only to receive it again with crabmeat thrown on top on the shrimp, a total mess! After being there over 2 hours and being so disgusted we decided to leave! When we get up to the counter the owner was scolding our waitress. We told her we were leaving & she wanted us to stay and said they would get it right, FINALLY? After at least 2 hours of aggravation we told her we were not going to wait any longer! All she was concerned about & told us so was that the waitress made her loose $19 on each meal. NOT OUR PROBLEM! She proceeded to charge us for the soup and salad bar which she should of foregoed for the aggravation we endured! We feel she was only concerned with the almighty dollar! Needless to say we will definitely not ever be back due to the terrible treatment we had! Time to get waitress's that understand ENGLISH!

It's disappointing to hear that this experience was enough to undo the years of support and trust we've built with you. We took steps to address your concern with the crabmeat, including taking that meal off of your bill. We're truly sorry for the frustration the experience caused you. We hope to have another opportunity to demonstrate the quality service you know we're capable of.

Sincerely,
Seville Diner
