Big dining in a small town.Del Alma is an oasis in the mid valley where very casual dining is the norm. Located in the only "tall" building on the downtown riverfront, Del Alma serves excellent Latin inspired food with a non-traditional flare. You'll find well chosen and rare beer, wine and spirits that buck the latest brand trends. The atmosphere is energetic but relaxed. Service is professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their offerings. Prices are higher than average but reasonable given the quality of dining and experience.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SpotWe had a terrific dining experience. Best. Dinner in Corvallis. Our waitress, Danielle was informed and helpful. We had 4 appitizers to share. The stuffed Chile was amazing.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Tapas in TownWe've been to Del Alma several times, always going the tapas route for dinner, because we like variety. Speaking of variety, we wish that there was a choice of potatoes on the tapas list. The restaurant always gives the option of asking for a side of some kind of potato from the regular dinner list, so that works for us. The food is interesting, and we love saying "albondigas". Oh, and the martinis were great. It's also refreshing to be able to order a pisco sour. The restaurant is on several, set-back levels with huge windows looking out toward the river. Sometimes it can be very noisy, but not intolerably so.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMexceptional experience all aroundAll I can say is I drove an hour from Eugene for a first date and del Alma was the perfect place. The quality of food, service and ambiance made for a perfect evening. I only wish del alma would open a restaurant in Eugene. Kudos to all who make the restaurant all that it is.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMKeeps getting betterI have been to Del Alma no less than four times since their opening a few years ago. Each time I go the food gets better, the service gets better and I enjoy my time that much more. This place is a perfect date spot and great for celebrating that special occasion.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous New Latin CuisineThis was our second time at Del Alma since Sept, and we'd visit every week if we lived closer! Every dish was generous and very tasty. From 5 - 6, there are reduced price tapas. We had a fish of the day taco--fresh Pacific halibut, guacamole and more; and a meat taco--with chorizo, potato, etc. From the dinner menu we had a pulled pork and scallops tapa that was extraordinary--a mound of pulled pork in "chipotle cola bbq sauce" surrounded by seared sea scallops, all on a bed of parsnip puree. Though satisfied with these large servings, my husband clamored to try the "plato grande" of lamb mole. Glad he did! It came with a piece of succulent, tender lamb topped with thin crispy onions on a bed of sweet potato puree and veggies. Awesome!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecialThe service was great...the food was unique and fabulous...I would definitely go there again...well worth the visit.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMdel almaGreat dining experience.

Pink shrimp guac and ceviche - devine.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional flavor, great service.My daughter and I recently had dinner at Del Alma. We started by splitting two of the Tapas plates, marinated beef tenderloin and scallops with pulled pork. The last was such an interstesing pairing we had to try it - it did not disappoint. Wow. For entres, my daughter had the Halibut and I had the lamb mole. It was a generous portion, though not overly so, tender and flavorful in a mole sauce topped with crispy thin fried onions. It was delightful. The halibut was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. We topped it off by sharing the deconstructed banana cream pie which although not the prettiest, was delicious with wonderful texture and flavor. Our server was very attentive and helpful in making a wine selection.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good experience. WeVery good experience.

In our opinion, the menu was lacking on variety, but the filet mignon was delicious. A tad under-cooked for medium, but it was tender and full of flavor. From appetizer to dessert it was an extremely wonderful dining experience.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at Del Alma is likeDining at Del Alma is like being at a far away vacation spot with a four-
