We loved this place with a very interesting tapa menu & good wine selection. Our experience was enhanced by our awesome waiter who was so very professional ,yet friendly. Food was delicious & we had a wonderful meal here. Was in Barcelona on Las Ramblas with same friends a year ago making this perfect !

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

We had lunch here on Labor Day Monday as we were out and about wine tasting. Authentic Spanish food and good service. We ordered an app, flatbread pizza and some tapas - all were excellent! La Rambla offers paella, but it does take some time to prepare. We wished we had called ahead to order because it looked amazing. It... More

La Rambla is a fun place right on the Main Street of McMinville with authentic Spainish cuisine. Service seemed a little slow, but the food was great--I had the salmon. The wine list was extensive and included many local wines. Some dishes are quite spicy--ask first if you don't like spicy food. It is not a place for kids, and... More

I cannot eat overly spicy food, so we called the restaurant, talked with the chef, and asked if the fish stew could be made without the hot spices. He said he could do that. So that is what my wife and I had. It had a considerable amount of a variety of seafood and was excellent. It was still a... More

We spent a few days in McMinnville and had heard this is one of the spots to stop at. We especially enjoyed the tapas, as it allows you to try a couple different options. The fried green beans in ginger ale batter with aioli are amazing! Good atmosphere, good prices, and service. Highly recommend for a nice night out in... More
