La Rambla Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
