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....More

As was posted, Sevilla offers valet parking. You can also park in the large lot just past the Spaghetti Factory (across the street from the Union Bank branch). Try the Sangria Royale. Tasty drink!
