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.
