“Great Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

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.

“What a waste!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

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 never eat there again. Definitely not worth the money.

“Our favorite restaurant in NSB”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

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 competent, friendly and knowledgable, and the food is outstanding. The menu is incredibly creative, and wine list is fun and fairly inexpensive. We've never had a bad meal.

“For Locavores and Lovers of Latin Cuisine”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

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 grazing and sharing with many tapas or small plates. We had empenadas, ceviche, crab cakes and fish tacos. Yumm. We had professional yet friendly service from our waiter Todd. The restaurant has a great list of artisan cocktails, as well as unusual wines by the glass.

“Food was a real disappointment”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

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.
