“Very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stayed in Springfield overnight, and asked our hotel where we could get a good meal within walking distance of the hotel. They suggested Sebastian's. I was less than 2 blocks away and when we got there we thought it wouldn't be very big, But what a surprise. They had a downstairs bar, and the seating area was on the main floor. Decorated very nicely. Service was very good. Our food was wonderful. I had salmon on a plank which was wonderful and my husband had scallops. They were huge. He said very good. If we are ever in Springfield again, we would go again!!

“Great Dinner Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very romantic spot to celebrate a special anniversary with my honey. The booth we were in had a dimmer switch, we dialed down the light and ate by candlelight. The food ranged from very very good to excellent. I would definitely go back.

“We loved it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Sebastian's is a bit more expensive than other Springfield restaurants so its in the special occasion for us. That said, this was our second visit, and we recommend it for their excellent food. I had a seafood special, scallops and fish with orzo and asparagus, and my husband had the pork tenderloin off the menu. Both were delicious! Large portions, but the menu is a la carte. Service was surberb, unobtrusive and not rushed. Decor is loung-y (dark reds, velour) but nice. We had one of the booths, which are very private. There is a nice bar below the restaurant. Reservations are accepted.
