The Spanish River Grill is a gem hidden away in the corner of the beach-side Publix shopping center. This upscale cuisine is both creative, delicious and reasonable. Spanish River Grill has the kind of menu, quality of service, and creativity of dishes that one would expect to find in true foodie" cities in larger metro areas. While there are a... More

While the Jelly Donuts are a must, As a tourist I did not like this place at all. I am assuming only rick, pretentious people go here. The Jelly donuts which an appetizer were 15 dollars. If you go here be prepared to dress nice and deal with a bunch of people trying to be pretentious The food was nothing... More

Using a coupon received on my recent birthday, the Spanish River Grill (SRG) was one of our first stops during this year's vacation in New Smyrna Beach. One of our favorite restaurants, and this visit did nothing to change that opinion. Terrific food and service. The Paella was great!

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The food was really good, the service prompt and friendly, and the atmosphere was really nice. Probably one of my most memorable meals in New Smyrna Beach.

We went as a family to eat at this restaurant hoping to have some authentic Cuban food, but it was a disappointment . Too expensive, no flavor, and it took too long for the food to arrive. The waitress was impatient and did not serve more water . The sodas tasted horrible and the chairs were uncomfortable . I will... More

Every single time we visit NSB, we come to Spanish River Grill. While they don't take reservations, you can call head and they'll work with you. I would highly recommend you do this on the weekend. We LOVE this place. The restaurant is in a strip mall, but once you step inside, that won't matter. Decor is upscale, waiters are... More

The no-reservation policy for small parties seemed intimidating on a Friday night, but Dave, the host, remembered our names, asked us to call when we were 20 minutes away from dining, and seated us immediately. The cuisine takes the Spanish and Latino classics and reinterprets them with a commitment to local ingredients and lovely presentation. The menu is designed for... More

Although the service was good and the decor attractive, the food was unexceptional at best. Over priced and tiny portions. I left hungry and very disappointed.

We recently had visitors for three or four days. Naturally we took them to what are our favorite restaurants in the area. Everyone in our party agrees that our meal at Spanish River Grill was head and shoulders above all the rest. You can always tell when everyone is enjoying their meal because everyone is offering "tastes". Not only was... More
