A broad menu of tapas and full plate dinners. Portions somewhat larger than one would expect in Spain: 3-4 tapas would be adequate for a party of two. EXTENSIVE wine list (priced $22->$120), and many by the glass. Flavors of all the dishes we tried (3 tapas, 2 plates) were authentic, varied, appropriately complex. Service attentive and helpful but not... More

It was a dark cold and windy night.....you know the feeling. I was looking for comfort food and a warm drink. We stopped in La Rambla, the restaurant is tastefully decorated, what struck me most was the chandeliers, all of them look like blown glass, they were beautiful and gave me that warm feeling, but I still needed something warm...

The food is good... "Small Plates" .... Tapas... Yes. Expensive... Eat before you go. Very, very small plates...not sure how they make it in such a small town.

Six of us -- Mrs. OJ, daughter, adult granddaughter and their spouses -- stopped in for dinner after a day of winetasting (no "Black Friday" shopping travails for us!). Even though we'd noshed our way through hearty appetizers at several wineries, we all were ready for a good dinner. We decided to go with four large tapas plates (the menu... More

We stayed in the La Rambla Loft for two nights and enjoyed Happy Hour at both of Kathy's restaurants. La Rambla had an amazing list of small plates .....our favorite was the stuffed piquillo peppers....came back twice for those! Also recommend the garlic shrimp and chorizo "nachos". We sat at the bar and got attentive and friendly service, then it... More

We visited this lovely restaurant on our driving trip to California - we had stopped in McMinnville to see the Spruce Goose on our way. We had seen the restaurant reviewed on Tripadvisor so we tried it out. It was excellent. We plan to stay in McMinnville again on our drive back home mainly so we can have another dinner... More

I travelled from Sydney Australia to go to the Evergreen Aviation Museum and was recommended by a friend to finish my day with Dinner at La Ramba. I was so glad I did as the Staff were friendly but the food was much better than that. The Chocolate Picada Torte Desert was just wonderful, I actually told the Guy behind... More

The Tapas were amazing. Would drive from Portland any day to eat at La Rambla. The service was great and not too expensive.

Had lunch here with my husband and son after visiting a local museum. The restaurant was almost empty on this Thursday afternoon, which gave us a little pause, but we are so glad we ate here. My husband had the seafood stew, which was in a wonderful broth. My son and I shared several small plates, including a shrimp dish,... More

We tried numerous tapas off the menu and enjoyed each and every one. The local wine list was sufficient and the server was extremely helpful!
