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.

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.

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

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.

Great place. McMinville is a foodie town, and this is one of its best. Tapas is terrific and very good value. We arrived a little early for our reservation, and were seated at a perfectly good table. But after a few minutes a better table (in the window) opened up and we were invited by the staff to move there. That is excellent customer service.

Four of us ordered a number of tapas, most of which were quite good. Disappointing, however, was the large seafood paella we ordered, which was somewhat dry and lacked flavor. Service was good.

Once again, La Rambla proved to be consistently inconsistent. Silly me, I keep going back hoping for the old La Rambla, where every dish was delightful and the service as energetic as the noise level. This time, our service and server were great. Food, not so much. Changed the recipe for the fried green beans, no longer crispy with a tasty aioli but more like tempura (soft) and very bland (really, was it just mayo?) aioli. Shrimp were tasty but undercooked. sigh. I really really want to like La Rambla but it just isn't what it used to be, even as recently as a year ago.

Delicious Tapas. The pork shoulder was succulent and tender and lightly spiced. Anchovy crostini with whole anchovies... delicious but I would have liked a couple more anchovies on the toast.
Lamb nachos... using sweet potato chips. Unique and tasty. A great paring of sweet and savory.
