Great craft cocktails, knowledgeable wait staff and the food is top notch. The restaurant's signature dish is the Paella and we were not disappointed. Highly recommend.

La Rambla 238 NE 3rd St, McMinnville, OR 97128 The day was sunny and the streets of McMinnville downtown, busy with outside diners, window shoppers, and tourists. I entered an interesting store front and discovered a cozy Tapas restaurant. A friendly server invited me to...sit. We fell into conversation about world class scotch which she was just recently learning about and I ordered my favorite, Lagavulin. The server returned a few times and we continued our discussion. An experience most solo travelers enjoy, meeting a stranger and finding a common interest. Before I left I made a reservation with the manager for the following evening. I asked for six o'clock because that tends not to be a busy time and I wanted to make it easy. I looked forward to my dinner all day. When I arrived, that same manager invited me to sit in a lousy table jammed under the bar top. The place was almost empty so I asked for another table. She said no. I asked for a different one and again, she said no, that the tables were reserved. I mentioned I had a reservation and she said, but she had to keep those tables for couples and groups. I finally talked her into letting me sit at a table which was reserved IN 90 MINUTES. I assured her I'd be gone by then. Even though there were few diners and there were three servers, service was not swift. When My food finally came, it was missing one thing I had ordered. Another table had been seated after I was seated and had received that same order a full five minutes earlier. I flagged down the manager to ask about it and was told it would be 6 more minutes, the exact time it would take to prepare it. She asked me if I still wanted it. I declined. Clearly, she was trying to shorten my stay. A server came to my table to ask if I wanted another drink. No one asked how I was doing and no one refreshed my water. When I left I mentioned to the manager I had not felt welcome. She made excuses, defended the service, and gave an unconvincing apology. Clearly, the policy is to give low priority to solo diners in the belief they don't spend as much as couples and groups. We do. And we also become emissaries for any place where we dine. We are always asked for our opinion, especially when it is about an expensive or upscale restaurant. While the menu was wonderful, the experience was not. I won't return.More

La Rambla sits unpretentiously on the Main Street through McMinnville, the food is really special. Patatas bravas was perfectly cooked and spiced, albondigas was very good and the stuffed peppers really good too. The paella really stands out; we washed it down with Albariño and...draft Pilsner. We thoroughly recommend this restaurant!More

The selection and quality were perfect. So much detail to locally available sources and the drinks were perfectly tailored to complement each other. Everything we tried was tasty.

Wow, this restaurant would be near the top of any city's culinary experience, so to find it in McMinnville was a wonderful surprise. The execution of the Spanish menu is spot on with a knowledgeable chef creating succulent and varied plates, the atmosphere follows suit...with dark woods and beautiful light fixtures, and the service is charming and reasonably attentive. And the virus protocols didn't detract from the experience!More

Very good restaurant but weekend reservations are suggested. Dropped by one night and they were too busy to accommodate us so we made a reservation for the next night and were very pleased we did. Good selection of tapas and very reasonably priced.

Having been highly recommended by the staff at the Beaux Freres tasting room nearby, we decided to try out LaRambla for appetizers as we were tasting our way through town. The Empanada's were so good, we decided to stay for the highly acclaimed Paella. The...small version was more than enough for the two of us, and lived up to the billing of a flavorful homemade recipe. The entire staff was very attentive, friendly and appeared to truly appreciate the guests who visit. Be safe, make a reservation and you will not be disappointed.More

My husband and I went to celebrate my birthday. Between us we have laundry list of allergies and sensitivities. Our server, Nicole, was excellent at guiding us to dishes that didn't contain things we couldn't eat. The food was delicious and her wine suggestions were...spot on. Thank you, Nicole for helping make my birthday a memorable one. We'll be back.More
