This is my third time here and it has been consistently delicious. The menu is limited but I like that as they do a wonderful job with their tapas. I typically order a bottle of wine as I like their list, but ordered one of their signature cocktails and it was perfect. Our server was always aware of our needs. The layout of the restaurant is unique with its levels. The lighting and ambiance is perfect.

Del Alma is always a delight. The foid and service was exceptional. The prices are appropriate for the offerings. My girlfriend had an outstanding Chardonnay that impressed her so much that she bought a bottle. I had a blood orange margarita that was among the best I'd ever had. Del Alma is a class act in every sense.

A great dining experience every time we go. We feel blessed to have such a wonderful, well-rounded restaurant so close to home. Big city dining in small city atmosphere. I'm proud to be able to share it with out of town guests who have sophisticated taste. Always a delight from the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by the friendly and professional staff, to the friendly and knowledgeable waiters. And of course, the fabulous food.

First time visit to Del Alma. Surprised at the upscale ambiance and capacity of the property. The menu was interesting with an expansive offering of appetizers/tapas and a fairly sophisticated wine list. The spoon bread was VERY good as were the taquitos. My entre', Duck Fajitas was well presented but excessively salty as was the posole' that my partner had. I would have preferred to have less salt/brine and more chili on the duck. Our server was pleasant accommodating but slightly slow.

If you are stuck in Corvallis, this is a good option. The service was top notch. If you are ordering your wine by the glass make sure you ask if is from the “keg.” I sent my Pinot back because it the taste was off and it was cold.

I love going to del Alma! I want to mention how hard it is to find nice gluten and dairy-free desserts in town, but del Alma has these nice truffles and sauces and sorbets. I also like how it has four small stories to help it feel more intimate.
It's spendy, but makes sense for a more upscale restaurant. If you want to save, just get drinks and dessert.

Have always loved the restaurant. This time, even though we had made reservations through open table, we were seated in an overflow room that was cold (next to an entrance from outside) and it had no ambience. The room was lined with chairs along a wall and we were seated at one of 6 tables. Disappointed this time around.

This is only my second time dining at Del Alma so I have limited experience with it. The food was, once again, excellent. Well prepared and well presented. The proportions are good both for the price and for comfort. I like to leave a restaurant feeling satisfied, not stuffed, not hungry. I did think the side salads were a bit overpriced, they should be a bit less or a bit larger. We were seated off to the side of what I would call the main room. The tables were pretty widely spaced, almost oddly so, but it was quiet. The last time we ate here the waitress was exceptional, we were not as lucky this time. Our waiter did a pretty poor job. Empty plates were left on our table even after the next course had been presented. The waiter did not remove the bread or salad plates until the main course arrived. When he presented the bread and spreads he did not take the time to tell us what the various spreads were. He just laid everything down and left before we had a chance to ask. When my wife said she did not want another glass of wine, the empty glass was left on the table. These are all things a competent waiter would have taken care of. It did not seem like a very busy night but everything seemed to take a long time. We did have plenty of water though! The service was so slow that we opted not to order dessert as we were concerned it would add another 45 minutes to our experience. As it was we were there for almost 2 hours. We will certainly go again and roll the dice that our next waiter is more competent.

Del Alma is our go to place for special occasions, in this case our anniversary. Service is always spot on. The servers know the menu well and are present "just enough" but not too much. We have found that the tapas are quite good and Del Alma offers a nice variety. We will order one to three tapas then share an entree. Food presentation is very well done and the flavors are well balanced to provide an exquisite dining experience. The drinks are creative and have a nice balance of flavors as well. The ambiance is always a treat, not too noisy and plenty of space between tables.

This is probably the best restaurant in Corvallis at the moment.

The service was great! Friendly staff, only had an empty water glass once the whole night. The food was very good. My only mild complaint is that there is no indication of serving size on the menu. We got an appetizer (beef pinchos for $12), and it only came with four cubes of beef, two skewers of two cubes each. It was delicious, but the portion size would've been nice to know up front. The meals were plenty large though, and the complimentary bread/toppings were delicious!

Nice place to get together and have a conversation. No loud music that might make communication difficult. Easy access and easy parking on the south side of the building.
