Wonderful service makes up for a mistake in the kitchen

Our meals arrived at the same time, but mine was cold. I had ordered salmon and asked if chef could heat mine up. It came back hot but overlooked (which makes sense). I left it on my plate and shared my husband's meal. This was not good enough for our lovely waiter. He insisted that I order... read more

Service here is very disorganized. We had reservations through OpenTable for 2, they had us down for 6! We were seated with menus and after 15 minutes with no one to help us, we asked the woman pouring water for a wine list. Then after another 15 minutes, we asked the same water pourer if we could please order wine.... More

This was recommended by various people and we were glad we took their advice. It seemed empty when we arrived but quickly filled up. Our waiter was wonderful, attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.We split a mixed paella (there are 3 on the menu) after a spinach salad and some boquerones (which I thought was the low point of...

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary with a tapas lunch at La Rambla. A mushroom pizza, sautéed green beans and sautéed spinach were delicious!

Our last night in McMinnville and at least three other restaurants on the must try list. So happy we chose LaRambla. If you like grilled lamb, this is the place. We could smell the fragrance as we walked in the door - and it did not disappoint. We had a platter of appetizers which included the lamb and it was... More

Our biggest problem here was making decisions on what to order. We relied on our server for some guidance, his choices {and some of our own}. We had the tapas sampler, a pork entree, and a shrimp dish. This was more than enough food for 2 and every bite was special. The stuffed dates were to die for, we each... More

Great tapas and complete wine list. We had a great experience. The flan was superb. I would certainly come back when visiting Willamette Valley wine country.

My wife and I came here on a Saturday night after arriving in wine country that evening. We have been to several tapas places around the country and this was a very good one in our opinion.
