We loved it.
Food was solid and fairly priced.
Our server was attentive and polite.

We tried six items all where really good. They even had a guy playing a little guitar in the background.
We are very happy my wife loves small plates.

Lobster pasta was a bit weak on flavor and lacking good meat. Everything else was great! Potatoes, cauliflower, and meat paella. Great service too!

I was disappointed. We presented a gift card with Rincon clearly stated on the certificate. It was refused and when I questioned why, the server/ manager became rude and pouty.

We dined inside - too hot for us on the outside.
We were greeted quickly and professionally, the food was excellent and the service/presentation was more than we had expected.
Highly recommended,

This is our go to spot in MPLS. Eat as much or as little as you like, try everything and you won't be disappointed. We have been going since they opened, and return multiple times each summer. Love this place!

We went for the first time for a quiet celebration of our 30th Wedding Anniversary. Everything about the place was outstanding - the tapas, the service, the ambience and the price.

Each item was prepared and served quickly (we ordered 2 or 3 items at a time, and kept ordering more until we were sated. Each item we tried was delicious, and was clearly made with the freshest, highest quality ingredients. We loved every item we ordered, and while we hadn't planned on dessert, the Tres Leches Cake and the Chocolate Torte were fantastic. The plating and presentation were photo-worthy. (And yes, we did take pictures!)

The ambience was just right for us, a casual, understated classiness, with soft lighting and an impressive display of Spanish wines stretching up to the ceiling behind the bar. The flags of Spanish Football (i.e., soccer) teams form an accent to the decor - and again, these are classy and understated, tastefully done.

The restaurant was quiet, with very few other diners - though we were there in the mid-afternoon, so it may be busier in the evenings. I hope that it is busier, because a place this good deserves support, especially since times are still difficult for restaurants.

We decided that Rincon 38 had become our favorite restaurant even before we ordered dessert. The tab for three people was very reasonable for such outstanding food. We plan to go there again soon. Highly recommended!

Love this restaurant. It serves tapas (small plates) ideal for sharing. Everything was delicious, from the beet salad to the seafood paella, to the lamb. The meatballs were amazing. Lots of great wine options. The desserts were a tad heavy on the chocolate spectrum, but well executed. Service was friendly and efficient. So glad this spot made it through 2021!

Because the reservation asked for an occasion and I stated that it was our 35th anniversary, I thought perhaps some mention of it would be made. Not a big deal, but why ask the question? My wife would have enjoyed acknowledgement. Our waiter, Marcel, was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and friendly.

It's been over 4 years since I first visited Rincon. It is a place you want to keep coming back to and never regret. The tapas are delicious--a rich list to choose from--the wine offered very decent and great for the price.

We had a table in the shade on the sidewalk. Great food, great service and great atmosphere. Best Spanish tapas bar in town! We tried the calamari, beef steak, gamba shrimp, charcuterie platter, and fried manchego cheese.

As always, another delightful array of delicious tapas at Rincon!! All of the tapas I've tasted are really exceptional, although, I do tend to eat a lot of the same (coliflor, halibut, sea bass, roasted beets, paella, Queso Frito, Vieras...) so it was fun to get out of my rut & we had the tenderloin & empanadas - also yum-meee! I can't say enough about Rincon 38. And the staff is always so welcoming, too. They're the best. A Kingfield treasure, enjoy.
