Seated almost right away (we had reservation). Great ambiance. Attentive server. Food excellent; our guests loved it. Didn't take long for orders to arrive. We had a great experience.

I could not love this place more! The food is amazing, the desserts are even better (get the KeyLime Pie even if you don't like key lime pie - I promise), and the staff makes everything a perfect experience! If you want to save some money, get the tapas plates or don't drink, but go and eat things. I recommend the Brussel sprouts, the beet salad, the tequila prawns, the miti crema, the hacienda salad, the albondigas, and the best steak around.

Had the $30 three course set menu. Each course was very good with a unique twist to the traditional flavors. Good wine selection and left feeling full and satisfied.

Everything was excellent. I especially like the pace of dining there, we never feel “rushed” and enjoy taking our time with our friends.

My wife and I consistently find Del Alma to be one of the highest quality and best service dinner restaurants in Corvallis. For years it has been our go-to place for special occasions. The staff are superb and the food is always very high quality in its preparation and presentation. The ambiance is elegant is a relaxed way. It's not the only place in Corvallis for a fine dinner, but we've found it to be one of the best.

Used to travel nationally for work and ate out at a lot of nicer restaurants over the years. Del Alma was surprisingly one of my Top 10 of all time.

We sampled a number of Tapas and all were excellent! Highly recommend for a date night out or excellent location for business dinner.

This is one of my favorite, go to restaurants in Corvallis. The ambience is very trendy but cozy, it's right by the river which is nice in the summer months. The food is always fresh and creative. We love tapas and this reminds me of some restaurants in Spain! Nice drink menu and always good selection of wines. Very nice place to go if you want something a little more upscale and special.

This is a familiar place for Corvallis locals. We have been here many time, we know what to expect and their are rarely any surprises. Good solid choice. The food is OK, which is puts it near the top in Corvallis, but what Del Alma has is a cosmopolitan , bigger city, feel that is rare in Corvallis.

I had made a reservation for two through OpenTable. I picked the time that was available (7 pm) and I there as a question regarding if this was a special occasion. I indicated that we were celebrating my husband's birthday. The table that was reserved for us was right by the entrance where there was busy traffic of servers and guests going back and forth. I would expect that table if we had come in w/o a reservation. Very disappointed with our seating. Plus bit puzzled at why ask if this was a special occasion if the restaurant was not going something special.

We love Del Alma as a place to eat in Corvallis. Great, warm and comfy ambiance, good food, particularly the selection of innovative tapas.
Three little quibbles this time:
The bread comes with 3 separate spreads, which are excellent, but would be better if served with a small teaspoon for spreading rather than trying to do it with a table knife.
We ordered the Del Alma salad, which we enjoyed, but the 2 small roasted pear slices seemed a bit skimpy.
The salmon empanadas were dry and hard to cut, and a little light on the salmon filling, which was very good.

My wife had filet mignon , it was cooked as ordered and was a decent steak. I had lamb mole it was terrible the lamb was dry and over cooked , rolled into a thin disk that looked horrible and tasted just as bad , the mole sauce was good. This dish was poorly done and was terrible. I should have complained at the table.

We were looking for a "fine dining" experience in Corvallis to celebrate my birthday. Del Alma did just that. We have lovely, unique cocktails and then a most amazing dinner (difficult to decide; so many amazing choices!). Be prepared for a spicier flare in the cooking. I loved the pace, the ambience and the friendliness of the staff.

Unexpectedly wonderful. As a Bay Area resident with the opportunity to dine at many well rated restaurants, Del Alma was the equal of almost any dining in the Bay Area. Unique flavors and dishes. Pesoli, shrimp, ribs. All wonderful. Simply the coolest place in every regard.

The interesting and rotating menu is always worth stopping by. I enjoy the adventure of trying novel and unusual food creations, especially the desert, which are often a piece of visual art in addition to being scrumptious. The experience usually justifies overcoming the sticker shock.
