Made reservations well in advance and still had to sit right by the front door where cold air and all the people come in!! WOW. really??
Fabulous place for a gathering of old friends. Enjoyed the family style tapas (dates were our tables favorite) and the paella was delicious.
This is our second time dining at La Rambla, visiting from the Seattle area. It is a cozy restaurant in the heart of downtown McMinnville with excellent Spanish food, a nice wine and spirits selection, and a friendly staff. We had a quality local pinot noir that was not significantly priced above the retail off the shelf cost at the large discount wine shop... overall, a very good value for a quality dining experience!
Wonderful food and atmosphere. My husband and I met another couple for the third Saturday McMinville Art and Wine Walk and enjoyed a fantastic meal afterwards. Reservations needed for that night and although the restaurant was packed, we had no trouble hearing each other at a table for 4. Exceptional service. This is the kind of food and atmosphere that you want to take your time and enjoy. Just as when dining in Spain, it's about the experience and the good company and conversation and you have no sense of being rushed. The paella takes a while to prepare, as it is made from scratch and it is worth the wait. We got appetizers and drinks to start, which worked out perfectly. Fantastic desert as well. An amazing value for the quality of food! We drive from Salem for special occasions to this restaurant. It's that good.
Second time eating here. We love it even more. The lamb dishes are excellent
We have been here multiple times now and it never disappoints . One dish is better than the next. The calamari was some of the best I've ever had. It is a must visit if you are in the area.
We had a get together with special friends. One needs GF options so this is a great place for him. The rest of us can get a fabulous meal also. Love the variety of unique items not found at every other restaurant. Perfect for a special occasion.
More than what I expected. Will go bsck
We were originally going to celebrate a family members Birthday in downtown Portland, but at the last minute decided to try La Rambla and head South. The small plates are excellent! We really enjoyed the lamb moruno...tasty! The sauteed green beans were excellent and so was the tortilla espanola. We also shared a large order of the mixed paella. While it was good, it was left in the oven a little too long, so the mussels, clams, and chorizo were dried out. The flavor of the dish was mild and pleasing. We had a party of four and the paella serving was perfect. To top it off, we ordered the chocolate picada torte and it was decadent!
We'd definitely go back but order more of the small plates as they were really good! If we order paella again, we might remind the kitchen not to over cook it. One of our party is a "manhattan" connoisseur and said the signature manhattan was very good...
Love this place and eager to return. The tapas are very good and we typically order off that menu. This time in addition we had the vegetarian paella and were very happy with it.
Beautiful atmosphere, terrible dinner. Mushroom soup tasted of the forest floor- in a bad way. Short ribs- beyond greasy. Foie gras- hurt til morning. The sangria was nice. GoodMorning 2018.
We made a last minute reservation for late afternoon on New Year's eve using Open Table. When we arrived they told us they were only serving at the bar as that night they were doing the NY Eve special event. Not sure why Open Table allowed us to book when they weren't taking reservations for just dinner (not the event.) When we told them we had a reservation the host immediately changed gear, seated us, and was attentive. It was obvious that we weren't in their plans but they made us feel welcome never the less. Unfortunately they weren't prepared for anyone to order of the menu so somethings were just not available but they still were troopers and prepared our small dish tapas. Every dish was better than the one before and that's hard to believe. We tried the Oregon Mushroom Flatbread that was rich, flavorful and the crust was soft and perfect. The Empananas and another potato dish were excellent also. Try the house Sangria. At $6 it's flavorful, just a little sweet, and incredibly smooth. I will definitely go back again. The food was fabulous and for making us feel welcome despite throwing them a curve ball with our reservation the service respectful, helpful and attentive. Any business that can treat unexpected customers with that level of service rocks in my book.
Amazing food!!!! The portions were decent sizes too! The waitress was super sweet and very helpful! The cocktails were delicious! Couldn't recommend this place more! We will absolutely be back
Our waitress was lovely -- attentive, well informed, and fast with a recommendation.
The food, however, was mediocre at best -- especially for the price. The patatas bravas were fairly unexciting, and the pork migas (a meat hash medley) was quite salty. The shrimp were under-seasoned and rubbery. And the spinach salad looked like a bag of spinach poored into a bowl with about a cup of shredded cheese on top. It was bland aside from the overabundance of cheese.
Desserts were a brighter note, with a lovely berry sauce drizzled flan and a nutty chocolate tort.
Again, our service was great, but the food was somewhat of a let down.
Food was good, as was service, but the overall restaurant could use a little cleaning. Menus were spotted and dirty, there were several used cloth napkins on the floor under the table, and the silverware had a multitude of water spots on it and did not look attractive.
Great Place for Lunch when visiting wine country. A group of 6 went wine tasting in the Willamette Valley. Stopped in for a bite to eat. Ordered off the Tapas menu to share and really enjoyed it. Food was delicious and the service was attentive. We even found Cabrales, Spanish blue cheese, on the menu which we love but not easy to find. Will definitely stop in again.
Would have been nice to have empty tapas plates taken away when a new tapa was brought out.
Had to ask for a second cup of coffee and was charged $2.00 for a refill and had to ask for cream.
A great time here!
Great little restaurant with good atmosphere and excellent Spanish influenced Tapas and entrees. Be sure to make your reservations on openTable, so you are assured of a spot tobdine!
We have been to LaRambla many times over the years, and it does not disappoint. The space/ambience is comfortable & fun, the cocktails are lovely, the food is excellent, and service is friendly and knowledgeable. Always a great experience.
Great options and prepared wonderfully. Service is first class and prices very reasonable for a restaurant of this class. We will be back with others for sure.
Everything exceeded expectations. A great date spot and a must return. Food was out of this world.
Flavors are great. Menu change for us since it had been awhile since dining there. Quantities seemed reduced and our food that had to be fried was very greasy. Atmosphere is always good though not very private and can be noisy. Small selection of yamhill county wines by the glass was a surprise.
I ate here 10 years ago and it seems that the food quality is not as tasty. I would consider it average.
Pleasantly surprised to find a Spanish restaurant in McMinnville. Food was excellent.
Went there for our anniversary dinner. Excellent food and service. The complimentary glass of Champagne was out standing. Other people who have eaten there say its a bit pricey, but for what you get, its really quite fair. Go and enjoy
It is a perfect stop for a wine country visit. Food was flavorful and staff was friendly.
Very good paella and wonderful tapas. I also had soup while my wife had several different small plates. We each had delicious sangria and the service was quick with a fun decor.
Very good food & drinks. Especially liked the lamb nachos! Will recommend to others & come back! Service was very good too!
Great food and service!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our meal!!
Everyone loved their dinner selection. Even our friend who ordered a Caesar salad said it was the best one she had ever had. In my opinion some of the high end restaurants in Yamhill County have become too expensive. But La Rambla was reasonable for delicious food.
Very good overall. Loved the ambiance and the food was perfect. Excellent winelist.
Out-of-this-world paella...! Great bartender (very accommodating)! He had great suggestions. Love the atmosphere, feels European.
Very tasty small plate. Good variety of choices. Service was good also.
Great place to enjoy with friends and share excellent tapas.
We love all the vegetable dishes and the waitress, Patty, is attentive and excellent at helping you choose dishes. Our favorite in Santa Rosa!
Love this restaurant!
This is a tapas restaurant, very competently prepared and served. The flavors were marvelous. Our waitress was excellent and the dishes brought to the table in perfect sequence. Really a very nice, relaxed and enjoyable experience. Sangria was well- fortified.
Tapas after a day of wine tasting. Sounds good. It was good!
Outstanding atmosphere, service and food. Will return for sure.
