This is one of my favorite restaurants in Corvallis for special occasion dining. The food is delicious, the specialty cocktails are unique and rival any in Portland, and the service is superb. The restaurant has also done an excellent job spacing out tables for adequate social distancing, making dining during the pandemic a relaxing proposition.

del Alma is our favorite restaurant in Corvallis. Everything on the menu is high quality, fresh, creative and well prepared. The cocktail list is extensive or the bartenders can make whatever you’d like that’s not on the menu. Wine and mocktails are excellent too. My favorite meal may be Hacienda Salad followed by filet or grilled chicken, but we frequently make a meal out of tapas. The restaurant is very spacious with high ceilings, so the ventilation is very good in this pandemic time, and they also have outdoor tables.

The entire staff was excellent. Susie, our waitress, was in top of everything. We ordered Tapas and the timing of everything couldn't have been more prefect. Other places we've been to bring everything you ordered at once. Our tapas were spaced out so we weren't overwhelmed with plates. As usual, the food was delectable! My husband ordered the Why Not Brazil cocktail. It was so delicious, he ordered another! We've been to Del Alma many times, and we will go many times in the future.

Great SA and Central American food. Spent many years in Chile, Brazil and Uruguay. This food is close to what I remember in SA. The pork was to die for.

The bacon guacamole with the house salsa was delicious to put it mildly. The Filet mignon cooked to perfection. Mocktails delicious. Service delightful. When I’m back in Corvallis visiting my daughter definitely returning to Del Alma.

The food was delicious! Loved the bacon guac, tuna crudo and lamb mole. The pozole was the star of the show - full of complex flavor. Fun to find a creative foodie place in a college town with lots of "bar food" type options.

Really excellent food creatively prepared and presented. We love this place. Awesome small dishes -- scallops and grilled pork belly, prawns tacos, pinchos (tenderloin of beef and greens), and more. Moles and the beef dishes are always outstanding and there was a new dish on the menu that was superb: prawns in a Dungeness crab-scented creme sauce. This is our favorite place to eat -- and we travel an hour to get here!

We met friends for a socially distant dinner at del Alma. It is about an hour drive for both couples and so is a perfect meeting place.
We were able to get an outdoor table (which are first come, first served).
The service was top notch. The menu was varied and interesting.
We will return as soon as possible.

In the time of COVID-19, with all the spacing and wonderful safety precautions, the great service and food was never compromised. Delicious innovative entrees, cocktails and desserts, enjoyed the roasted beets and the fabulous, juicy well seasoned filet. One of our favorite places.

The service we received was wonderful, attentive, and helpful. Knowledgeable about the menu and kept checking in to make sure we were happy. Refilled our bread and house made dips no charge. Brought out a free dessert and champagne toast as we were celebrating a birthday and anniversary dinner. Not to mention my main dish and tapas were delicious! The little touches here go such a long way. Will continue to be a repeat customer!

The cooking here is amazing, not inexpensive but you get what you pay for. My wife and I always choose Del Alma for special occasions, anniversary and birthdays. The service is always great too and it's a nice quiet environment making it easy to have a conversation. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Pleasant corner inside seating with good spacing. Bartender shaking drinks is hard on sensitive hearing aids. Or at least touchy to the ears.

Everything very nice as usual.
