The food is constantly excellent. The whole fish is highly recommend among with the Sangria. The wait staff is friendly and pays attention to their tables. I would recommend the Spanish River Grill for any occasion.

We had mediiocre food, at best. The chicken and rice came out cold and undone. The pork chop was dry and tasteless. Can't figure out how they can charge so much for such terrible food!??? Never go there!

Hello Peter, Thank you again for your response. Please let everyone know that it was the voucher you were disputing and not the food as you previously expressed. No one in our industry is in the business of providing 2 guests with FREE 3 course menus from the Chef (not offered to other diners) without payment. Yours was offered for... More

We had said we would not go back here. But, friends from out of town wanted to try it so we gave in and went with them. None of us will be going back. The high price is not the issue...It's just not great food. Lots of better choices in this town.

This Spanish restaurant is top notch! From the imported cheese board paired with the Tempranillo wine to Taco Tuesday night, the pork belly & chicken liver taco...wow! We went back twice in just three days! Best server in the world, Jeb, took us on a culinary adventure and made us feel like family, as dueling guitars serenaded Spanish classics, creating... More

The food is perfectly prepared, interesting and unique. Just order whatever your wait staff offers as the special of the night and you will be off on a tasty adventure; from appetizer to dessert. Chef Henry creates dishes that pleasure your palate.

First time here in 3 plus years - this was my favorite place in NSB. Service and atmosphere were great - food quality, while still very good, his slipped down some. You can have spicy and bold flavors, but the food didn't taste fresh or original. Sangria is still outstanding.

We visit Spanish River Grill when we are in New Smyrna Beach on vacation. We usually visit when their two entertainers from Orlando are there with their Latin/ Classical/ Jazz music. We missed them this trip but found the service to be excellent with our waiter Jared. He knew the menu well and the preparation and presentation was excellent (except... More

The menu has changed and not all for the best in my opinion. Two of the best dishes aren't on the menu anymore but the waiter said they could still make them. That was probably my mistake. Neither one was what it used to be. I used to get the gambas (shrimp in a spicy oil based garlicky sauce) and... More

It's a very nice place with friendly staff and excellent service. The main entrees are a little pricey. We had appetizers and salad along with some great Sangria. Worked for us.

After seeing the rave reviews of this restaurant we thought it was a no brainer. Unfortunately it wasn't up to par . The brightest part of the meal was the apps. Main meals were mediocre at best. Maybe we just caught them on a bad night but for the money they are charging they have to get it right. Service... More
