One of the best dining experiences in years. Everything was perfect. We had the three-course special and each course was simply wonderful. The service was very friendly and competent and professional.

A totally excellent experience in every way.

I am sad to make this an issue but only because we go here frequently I need to say what I am about to write. Long story short 3 years ago TO THE DAY we were BADLY served by a lady that worked at LUC, she was so terrible at her job that we literally threw our $300 on our table and walked out with out eating a bite of our food! Needless to say we NEVER went back to LUC because of this lady. So last night here at del alma on dec 31,2017 at 5:00pm seating on the floor level, we noticed we had not seen our server for 26 min. ( which was very odd since this has never happened to us ) I had to ask another server if she can please take our drink order. Colette was the server that was kind enough to get our drink order. We have had Colette as our server a number of times and we LOVE her. So since I am comfortable with her I said to her we have not seen our server once n it's beed 26 min it reminds me of a server we had 3 years ago at LUC. And guess what ???? It was the same server from LUC!!! I can't not believe that we were PURPOSELY ignored for 26 min because she recognized us from 3 years ago!!!! I can not believe that she had the audacity to have that control to ignore us at this restaurant. She finally asked Colette to take her table because she had a bad experience w us 3 years ago. I am appalled by her immaturity of a women!!! If this happens to us again I will go over and beyond the nice manager that does work there. Unbelievable! We are very upset about this and sad because we love the manager Hector and he is an amazing man that takes his work very seriously.

We like Del Ama for special celebrations, especially when we have out of town guests. Even Portland based food people are impressed with the menu, the ambiance, and the formality in a rather small city. Another couple who have been in the food business all their lives and travel yearly in Europe rated Del Ama as unique and "you are lucky to have place like this".

We went for our 49th anniversary. Great ambiance, not very noisy despite several office parties and large groups. I am not a great fan of Latin food (Japapenos, chiles) but found the tapas outstanding, and the spices not too heavy. We had the filet mignon and I asked for a lighter rub of adobo. Just perfect! lightly spiced, but delicious. The most outstanding part of the meal was the tapas. The delicata squash with hazelnuts and pea shoots. It was absolutely amazing. I think next time we will go for just the tapas. Saw several I am dying to try, like the sirloin with chimichurri, the guac and bacon,. etc. Yum. I felt a bit sad for the waiters who had to go up and down the stairs about a million times we were there. Good exercise, I guess.

We had our office Holiday at Del Alma and enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Although the restaurant was full, we were able to enjoy our conversation without raising our voices. The food was also a celebration sensation of its own. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

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.

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.
