A great find. Lots of choices for small plates of a variety. We had the lamb nachos and shrimp which were recommended and excellent. We also tried a flatbread and paella. Paella needs to be ordered when you sit down. Good food and service!

We wandered in off the street, hubby had never been to a tapas restaurant, to be asked "Do you have a reservation?" Oops, nope, we didn't. And the place was packed. On a Tuesday night. But the staff were gracious and friendly and offered to find us a table if we would be willing to sit at the bar (very... More

While on a wine tasting vacation to the Willamette Valley we enjoyed dinner at this establishment. The staff was friendly and efficient. Our waitress suggested a wine when we asked for her assistance and it was a fabulous Spanish wine called Coto de Hayas. Perfect for the food we ordered and very well priced. The food was delicious and savory.... More

I arranged a wine dinner here for a group of New Orleans food and wine lovers with Patrick Reuter from Dominio IV winery. It was the first night of the trip and everyone was wowed by chef Jesse Valle's food and wine pairings and quality of the meal. It definitely set the bar for our winemaker dinners for the rest...

We love to share small plates and therefore get to explore a variety of food choices. Sometimes places just serve little plates of nondescript food. That is NOT the case at La Rambla. We talked with the wait staff (all of whom were very friendly) to get their recommendations. We took some of their suggestions and did a couple on... More

This is a foodie stop....as is Nick's down the street. Classic tapas bar....feels like Madrid! Go about 8 or later BUT order the paella early in your visit (we ordered it last and waited awhile but worth the wait. The shrimp is one of their best tapas dishes. Value seemed good. Location is great....lots of parking behind.

The cheese course and shrimp course for 1 was good. We ordered the flat iron steak for an entree. After waiting over 30 minutes for the steak, it was so salty we couldn't eat it. The waiter indicated he had heard this comment before. He apologized and said he would have another one ordered and tell them it was too... More

Visited this restaurant based on a recommendation from a vintner in Carton. The food was unbelievably delicious. The service was impeccable and all the employees were very friendly and professional. We had dates with bacon, olives, beef empanadas, stuffed peppers, and fried green beans with aioli. Loved everything. Ate so much I could not order the chocolate torte I wanted... More
