Excellent drinks, food, atmosphere and staff. We had a variety of menu items we shared, and enjoyed them all.

We stopped off here for supper on the recommendation of the Innkeeper at Youngberg Hill, and we were glad that we did! The food was great! The local pinot noir recommended by our server paired nicely with the tapas, and our server was charming and attentive. We shall return!

I am sorry you had a bad time with your mother, but I think you have your restaurants confused. This is not my restaurant that you visited.. I do not serve burgers or chicken or a side dish of green beans. I am not a French restaurant, I have a Spanish restaurant. I am the owner and a woman. Not... More

Beautiful restaurant with excellent service but very average food. We enjoyed some quiet couple time and a couple of nice glasses of wine. Convenient and close to our hotel, the service was very good but overall, not a great value.

We drove down to Carlton Farms to pack up our cooler and stopped by this restaurant for lunch on our way headed back to Portland. This place is nothing short of amazing. Every dish we had was incredible. Probably the best Spanish food and tapas I have had in the Pacific NW. The calamari and aioli tasted like I was... More

My husband took me out for my birthday dinner at La Rambla. The entire experience was top notch. Wait staff was attentive without hovering, each server with a pleasant demeanor during a busy dinner crowd. Great mixture of people with families with kids, couples, girl's night out, etc. The various plates we ordered delivered tastes and textures that could be... More

We enjoyed a shared meal consisting plates of sautéed spinach, fried green beans, roasted padrone peppers, pork empanadas, and sautéed garlic chili shrimp. Each item was eloquently prepared and seasoned deliciously!

My g/f and I arrived a bit later on a Friday evening when the crowd was starting to taper off a bit. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and were seated at a cozy corner table. Service was attentive, and the food was really tasty. Our favorites were the empanadas, the bacon-wrapped dates, and the sangria. Nice decor as well.

We sampled/shared ham croquettes and empanadas while sipping Spanish Albarino wine. The food was delicious, the setting lovely and the service excellent.

We visited for a light dinner. Food was good but our selection was a little greasy (calamari, pork plate) but tasty. Beer selection is limited but features local brews and changes frequently.
