We had a great time here. We ordered several different tapas plates and enjoyed all of them. The restaurant itself has a great vibe, friendly staff, delicious wine and tasty food. Highly recommend the halibut, the dates, and any of the vegetarian tapas (esp. the one with honey black truffles!)

I've been going here occasionally for over 5 years, and every experience has been phenomenal! I love how it's like stepping in to Spain. The service is always fantastic and the waiter (owner?) pays attention to your needs, reactions to every dish, and caters to your reason for dining well. It was my friend's birthday, and she only really drinks chardonnay so I chose a place that didn't have chardonnay on the menu to make her try something new. The server was killing it with the wine recommendations - she loved every one! I like the partially open kitchen because you see how quickly the dishes are made and immediately served to you. The wine selection is like none other - types you've never heard of unless you're a somm or an Iberophile!

I'm sure all the food is made in house and fresh. My only complaint is this place is I wish I had room in the budget to eat here more! The food itself is always delicious, but the portions are on the smaller side for the price.

Fantastic place, super quaint and the food was as advertised! We sat at the bar, to be a little closer and feel less crowded. Tables are quite close together, so just be prepared for having close neighbors but all in all, very well worth it. Would go back in a heartbeat!

My parents have eaten here a few times and gave us a gift certificate. We really liked the food, especially the meat paella and the dates. It was fun to share the dishes and try a whole bunch of different things. Sangria was also good and my husband liked it because it wasn't obnoxious and sweet. The tables were pretty close to each other, but it wasn't full so we had some elbow room (and a wall next to us). We would go here again.

Food is always great and never changing which eliminates surprises. Occasional new items but with the existing menu, they’re not needed. It is our go to restaurant and recommend it to everyone.

A hidden gem in south Minneapolis and one of the best restaurants I've ever been to, Rincon 38 is a deliciously authentic restaurant from a culinary culture that should be higher up on people's radar. It's clear that the food is made with a great amount of passion, and it boasts flavor to match. Dishes as ordinary as patatas bravas become high-brow in the hands of the master chefs, and food as adventurous as octopus is made approachable (and in this humble reviewer's opinion, the best dish on the menu). If Spanish food is what you're looking for, Rincon 38 is simply the best.

Great options and variety of food. We enjoyed all our selections. Restaurant is loud in my opinion but sitting at the bar got us away from some of the noise. Will come back

What a cozy date night place! We got there shortly after they opened so there weren't many people and it was quiet. The food was excellent with a huge variety on the menu. On the pricey side, though.

Everything we had was fabulous. We had a group of four people so were able to try a lot of different foods to share. One in our group was a vegetarian who eats fish and we found that there were more than enough options that everybody enjoyed, even the meat eaters.

The food at Rincon 38 is inventive and tasty. One thing I wish they would ask about is the sangria; they brought it in a carafe with ice and ice in the glasses too. I prefer it without ice. Otherwise, it was a delightful evening with a very skilled and attentive server.
