I prefer the other locations. The food here was just ok which was not at all what I was expecting from the other sister restaurants I’ve been to many times. Nice place and nice staff

Nice meal in a cozy dining room. The various tapas were well prepared. We loved the goat cheese stuffed dates. The garlic shrimp was also nice, if a bit mild to our taste. I might suggest that the presentation of the shrimp be altered. It's a bit difficult heading and peeling shrimp that already have sauce on them. Maybe provide a wet wipe? The pollo and meatball dishes were also quite nice. An enjoyable meal overall.

Service was excellent and the tapas were very good. The tapas are over priced. We spent $160 dollars for 2 people. That did include wine.

A wonderful variety of Spanish Tapas. We tried several and they were all wonderful. Cost wise, it adds up quickly. Each dish we had though was so flavorful and the presentation was fantastic. The service was excellent from when we walked in the door and then through the entire meal. They also have a very nice selection of wine.

Delicious dinner, terrific service. We enjoyed four small plates, several with seafood and a bottle of wine. This restaurant is a bit pricey but definitely worth it! We'll be back.

Rincon 38 is truly one of the best spots in MPLS. The service and the food is just over the top! Go here to celebrate a special occasion or just to celebrate being alive and being able to enjoy such a fantastic place. Looking forward to going back soon!

Yes, we would recommend Rincon. The restaurant offers an extensive and varied menu from which choices are made to be shared between people or enjoyed individually. The selections are tasty and attractively presented. An efficient, pleasant, and knowledgeable wait person assisted us with making choices
Excellent wine and beverage list. Including non-alcoholic selections.

We always enjoy our meals at Rincon 38 ... ate there just 10 days ago, and then again this week with our teenage granddaughter who is visiting from out of town. We have been going to Rincon since our son and his family moved to Minneapolis 4 years ago. We're happy to say we've now relocated here ourselves and will be able to walk to Rincon from our new house. The menu has an excellent and varied selection of items including many seafood and some very tasty vegetarian options. The portions are a perfect size -- my husband and I really like small plates menus -- we can eat very well without ordering huge portions. Service is very friendly and attentive without being overly fussy. Wine list is good, desserts are also excellent! Nothing negative to say at all... it's perfect the way it is!!

This place blew my mind! They have the traditional Spanish tapas I was looking for, but with lots of added flair. The fried Manchengo cheese appetizer was like a giant flat motzarella stick with balsamic sauce drizzled - cheese lovers you need to eat this! We loved the meatballs, the sauce they came in was so good we asked for more bread to soak it up. The patatas bravas were beyond the ordinary and had amazing flavor and beautiful presentation. All in all, the food was fabulous, the ambiance was quaint (small in size, located in the Kingsfeild neighborhood or Mpls), and we were well taken care of. Most definitely will be back very soon, and this will make it into our rotation of favorite spots!

The food was delicious but far too costly. I know “tapas” means “small plates,” but even after an appetizer and two $16 and $17 entrees, we were both still hungry when we left—-after paying $86.

Rincon 38 is a unique restaurant, with unique food offerings, a casual & welcoming environment and helpful, responsive & non-intrusive service. We took a friend there for his birthday, and it was the perfect special place for a special occasion. We all agreed that we plan to return to taste other offerings from the restaurant's exceptional and ample menu.

Every one of the nine or so tapas we ordered and shared had deep, rich flavors and sauces, whether seafood, vegetable, or meat. The Spanish Riojo wine we ordered was a lovely complement. The restaurant is relatively small, so we were glad we made a reservation. Although it was full of customers, we had an easy time conversing at our table, and the service was excellent. We would definitely go to Rincon 38 again.
