We went for a family birthday dinner. Menu accommodated everyone's tastes and service was great. The restaurant is tiered so it feels cozy and I think that might be what buffers the noise. This is a great find in Corvallis.

This was a third visit for us. We’ve had tapas on one one occasion, filet mignon on another, and Latin fare—really terrific Dungeness Crab enchiladas and Cochinita Pibil, a Yucatán-style barbecue pork with beans and guacamole—on this last visit. Superb. A wonderfully quiet, elegant setting with comfortable space between tables. Each time the service has rivaled the best that my wife and I have had anywhere, anytime. Oh, and common to all three visits—Key Lime Pie that is the real deal. We love this place.

Was it our good fortune? Or was Del Alma paying close attention to a very special birthday for which we received the best seat in the house! Wait staff were attentive and responsive, friendly and still very professional. The birthday dessert was perfect (i.e., not overdone!) and all elements of the evening were perfect. Thank you so much!

Pleasant meal in a nice atmosphere. We had mostly tapa, which were all very good. The tenderloin, scallops, beets, Brussels sprouts were tops. For dessert, the sorbet and panacotta were excellent. The cocktails were very good as well. All in all, a very pleasant evening and definitely several steps above other restaurants in town

This is the second time we have eaten at this great restaurant. We went with two friends and split 9 tapas plates and 3 desserts. Our waitress did a great job of serving us our food and drinks in this tri level establishment. The craft cocktails were amazing and the tapas sublime! We plan on making Del Alma one of our go to spots in Corvallis.

My husband and I had to go to Corvallis to pick up a shipment. We live about half an hour away, so decided to have dinner in town while we were there. We picked Del Alma because of good reviews, but we were frankly shocked at how amazing the food was. I would characterize their food as Pan-Latin. We decided to have Tapas so we could try a variety of items. We tried the Bacon Guacamole, Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Chorizo Verde, Scallops and Tamal, Albondigas, Yellowfin Tuna Cruda , Poblano Chile Relleno and a Ceviche that was the special that day. We also tried the Sangria, and my husband tried the Piña del Fuego with house-smoked pineapple juice. Everything was so full of flavor, although, because we had it last...the Poblano Chile Relleno suffered a bit by comparison. The sauces were remarkable. The smoky sofrito served with the Albondigas was eye-rollingly good. The tomatillo butter sauce with the Brussels Sprouts and Chorizo was very spicy but accentuated the other ingredients so well it was impossible to stop eating it! The plantain chips served with a couple of our tapas were light, delicate and perfectly salted - completely different than the thick, hard plantain chips that are normally found. We really wanted to try their delicious-sounding dessert list, but we just couldn't eat another bite. We are already planning our next visit. We will definitely make the 30 minute drive on a regular basis for the quality of food at Del Alma.

We have been here several times, and it never disappoints. The service is thorough but not intrusive, the atmosphere was great, beautiful setting, and although Latin food is not my favorite, there are quite a few things that I love on the menu. This time we had just tapas, and were very satisfied and full with 4 of them that we shared. The tenderloin, delicata squash, brussels sprouts, and albodingas were amazing. I wish there had been more tenderloin, like about a pound of it, but it was a tapas. The chard that came with it was spectacular!!!
Love love love this.

I have always loved the setting of the restaurant even before it was Del Alma. I would request a table farther back in the restaurant for a quieter meal. We had the bar noise which really wasn't that bad. Took my son for his 50th birthday. The cocktails were great as well as the food. Waitress was a little slow getting to us but really no complaint about service.

We dine here often- food is always on point. Service varies according to where you are seated, as does the noise level. High levels have bad service and are incredibly noisy- request seating on main level.

The general dinner was fine. We just feel that the lighting is very dark especially if one needs glasses to read the menu. Perhaps you could add more candles or lights on the table.

This was our fourth visit to del Alma for dinner. The food was very good on the first three visits, but this last visit was somewhat disappointing. The restaurant has great ambiance and a nice location by the river. The main dish featured a large portion of pork, but It was tough and had little flavor. For the money one should expect better quality. The rock fish soup was excellent and their desserts are always superb. The service has also been very good on each occasion and we will probably visit them again.

We love this place. It has the convenience of being close to OSU, just in case you're going to an event there, but I'd go to Covallis just to eat at Del Alma. The delicata squash was magnificent, as were the beets. The chili relleno was unusual and excellent. We had the bunelos for dessert, and it was one of the most unusual, creative, and outstanding desserts we've had in recent memory.
