This place is fantastic. All the entrees were excellent and the restaurant layout is unique and very cool. Probably the best restaurant in Corvallis. Highly recommended.

Delicious food. Cocktails were pricey. Pierra was a very friendly and attentive waitress! Beef tenderloin skewer tapas was 4 small cubes of meat for $12. We thought that was crazy but overall our meal was excellent.

One of my favorites in Corvalis. If you want something different than the typical brew/university type settings, this is it! I like the tapas style menu plus interesting entrees to fit everyone's hunger level. Staff is always very attentive.

My family went to Del Alma for a birthday celebration. Everything tasted amazing and the service was friendly and well-timed. Definitely higher end of a budget, but well worth the price in flavor. Cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and main dishes each delicious and well worth recommending. Will definitely return.

We were at Del Alma for our 41st anniversary this week. It was fantastic! We had tapas, drinks and dessert. The Poblano Chili Relleno was out of this world, best ever. And I can't say enough about the drinks menu, all very interesting and exceptionally well made. We will be back for sure.

Loved the food and service was excellent too. We were a party of 6 on the 2nd level and it felt very private and quiet despite the restaurant being pretty full. Menu was very creative and interesting. Waitress was knowledgable about food and wine. Great addition to Corvallis!

The drinks and the food were outstanding. The service was adequate but inexperienced. Everything arrived promptly however for an "upscale " restaurant the service needs coaching. The server was competent but not upto the level of a $$$ restaurant. I will go back and if the service improves I expect to become a regular.

We met another couple for dinner after the OSU game last weekend. Delicious food, nice atmosphere, really nice server. The staff were really patient with us and didn't ask us to leave, even though we were there past closing time. We'd definitely go back. Our only disappointment was they were out of their salmon.

Excellent service. Everyone in our party of seven remarked about how good the food was as well as ordering refills of wine and cocktails. One of the best fine dining experiences in Oregon.

I rated the food lower only because this is the second time we have had an early seating (5:30-6pm), and they had already run out of the daily special. One would expect that if you are dining late, but no way at 5:30pm they should already be out of the daily special when they just opened for dinner at 5pm! This is poor planning on the chef's part. Otherwise it's a great restaurant, however, a little more variety and selection on the tapas menu would be good - they don't seem to vary it enough.

Visited Corvallis to watch the Gophers defeat the Bevers (Ski-U-Mah). I made this reservation for our party of 9. Outstanding service. Truly the best service. Seated right away. Our server was always attending to our needs. She kept pur water glasses full and wine and food coming perfectly. I'm a vegetarian and found great stuff including appetizers. The other 8 people raved about their meals. I hope to go back to Corvallis!

I went there for our anniversary. For a restaurant that's considered upscale, it had more misses than hits. First of all, the appetizer was fantastic, but our main course was either not seasoned enough or too salty.
Our server was friendly and very kind, but he forgot to check in on us when we needed to order a drink or had questions.
Speaking of drinks, my wife ordered a drink that she said tasted like cleaning solution. I do commend you guys on taking back the drink and making her a different drink.

My second visit to DelAlma. Food is excellent. The layout of the restaurant is awkward, especially for the wait staff who have to carry dishes up several flights of stairs. And I observed more than one elderly guest having difficulty negotiating the stairs to reach the rest room. Probably not much to be done about this, but the service was very good and the food as well.

Food just okay, nicely presentated. Good salmon. Poor old tough flour tortilla. Desserts unimaginative. Lots of stairs to climb to get to various eating levels, but there is an evevator for top level. As restaurants go, the noise level was a tad too loud for relaxed conversing between old friends,. Food healthfully low on salt, no salt on table . Very well-trained, personable staff.

We sat outdoors partly because it was colder and noisier inside. Everything we had was outstanding, and the service - even though we were outside - was attentive without being obtrusive. If we're ever in Corvallis again, we would definitely eat here again.
