Wonderful experience on a street filled with outstanding restaurants. Every time I drive by I want to go to LaRambla again. Even love the way the name rolls off my longue :)

Make a reservation for dinner, but stop by anytime for drinks and Tapas. Beautiful bar. House infused liquors that make outstanding cocktails! Friendly staff too. Make sure you take the time to explore McMinnville's historic Downtown.

We discovered this place while visiting the McMinnville area and planned on maybe eating here. Then, while wine tasting down the street we started talking about it with the owner of a wine store. He said he knew the owners and would make a reservation for us. When we arrived we were greeted by one of the most enthusiastic and... More

This was a fabulous meal. We shared stuffed peppers, salmon with sweet potato & chorizo, and beef empanadas. The food was well prepared with just enough spice to make it interesting. Each food item was obviously individually prepare. The highlight was the salmon - it was perfect and the accompanying sweet potato / chorizo was perfect. Our server was extremely... More

This was our dinner destination after meeting up with a friend who just flew out from Washington DC to visit the Evergreen Air and Space Museum. We didn't know when we were going to finish up at the museum, so opted not to make dinner reservations that we might not be able to keep. We took a chance that at... More

We weren't sure what to think at first...but with the high recommendations that our bed and breakfast gave us, we decided to try it. We absolutely loved this place. It was one of the best meals we have had. The tapas were delicious...I found it quite interesting that some reviewers call this 'misunderstood Spanish' etc etc, these were eclectic dishes... More

I have heard of La Rambla in McMinnville for a while now and we finally gave it a try after spending the afternoon in wine country and I already know we will be back. Everything we ordered from the garlic shrimp to the potato's bravas with egg, the mixed greens salad and fried green beans with ginger aioli were superb.... More

Having only ever experienced tapas at this restaurant, I can't say whether they are authentic Spanish, but I can say that they are wonderfully delicious! Everything we had there on both visits was great, the shrimp are the best shrimp every, I highly recommend ordering the large portion. The drinks we have tried are good too.

Poor dining room service, took forever to get our courses; desultory server. Menu is much less interesting that it sounds! Most dishes would make a real Spanish chef blush with embarrassment. Not worth your money or your time

I took Trip Advisor's review advice and recommended this restaurant on a recent business trip. The three of us arrived for lunch and sat down at a table that was a combo table/couch. It was very comfortable and even though other people arrived there was enough space between tables to keep it divided. We asked the waiter how to order... More
