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.

As usual, the food was excellent and the service exemplary. We ate outside (first time) and enjoyed not having to worry about Covid-19. Glad Del Alma is open again, and we continue to think of it as the best restaurant in Corvallis.

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.

Didn’t really care for the food. Guacamole shouldn’t have hazelnuts and bacon. Serving sizes were small for the price.

Really superb dishes carefully prepared with local ingredients. We started with the BLT -- a medley of perfect heirloom tomatoes, with glazed bacon bits and a spicy cream sauce. We shared the prawn tacos, a generous serving of two tacos, and will repeat it when we return. My husband always has the mole special, this time with succulent lamb, which he loved. I enjoyed the smaller dish of pinchos, medallions of tenderloin beef, cooked to order, which were served with a sauteed kale -- both simply delicious. We chose the flourless chocolate torte for dessert, and it was sublimely rich. It was perfect to finish off the Troon-Cowhorn vineyard syrah blend from southern Oregon - a rare bottle to find in a shop or on a wine list, and a great choice for a special occasion. Of course, there is always in-house baked bread accompanied by three dips - white bean, sweet red pepper, and tapeanade. We liked the option to dine outside, in quiet, leafy space along the Willamette. All staff are masked and the tables are well-spaced, inside and out, in keeping with Covid safeguards. If we didn't live 40 miles away, we'd be at Del Alma every week - it's that good.

Wonderful food; just less-than-ideal ambience sitting on the sidewalk in front of parked cars. Other diners were facing the river and walkway - so much better. Reservations don't allow you to specify where you can sit outside - first come, first served I guess.

Excellent meal and service. Was disappointed that Key Lime "pie" was not a pie at all. More like a golf ball sized lime mousse on a Graham cracker. Sorry, but it was a real disappointment.

Del Alma is hands down the best restaurant in Corvallis. Could there be more low carb items? Yes, but the food and dining experience is well worth the cheat.

We love Del Alma. The service is fine, very good mostly, but they suffer from that thing that happens when it is slow - in our case end of the evening, last reservation of the night - and the servers get to chatting and not clearing the table. It shouldn’t matter that we were spending over $300, downtime is the best time to take great care of the tables. Del Alma is in a college town in an area where it’s hard to get long term servers, we understand that because we own restaurants and are therefore more forgiving, but at the very least the servers should work together to keep the tables cleared and to stay on top of things and if they’re going to visit whisper so the patrons can’t hear it :-) we would eat at Del Alma every week despite the menu that hasn’t changed in years, If only we could get consistent service. Nevertheless, it remains the best restaurant in the area and we are grateful that it is open during this challenging time.

We have been looking forward to visiting since last December when we came to Oregon. Did not disappoint! Excellent service, food and wine selections. They were very respectful towards social distancing and seated accordingly. We are returning next week. Can’t wait to try more dishes. Our fave is the tapas!
