After talking to several satisfied exiting patrons we decided to give this Spanish spot a try. It was a delight. We are tapis folks, and this fit the bill. Great wine selection of both local and Spanish varietals. Menu selection was equally diverse and very good. Service was excellent- knowledgable and courteous. A reservation is recommended.

First the good: This place has ample street parking available. The ambiance is very attractive and it has a very nice looking bar. The lighting is bright enough to read a menu but low enough to add a warm glow. The tables are widely spaced and the background music is fairly soft, giving diners a good opportunity to talk during... More

It's so lovely to have a wide variety of small plates that we could share. You can cater to your stomach's needs, as well as your budget, with unusual food combinations in plates that are as little as $8. Had to hang onto the menu so we could add new plates as we went. And they were kind enough to... More

We picked La Rambla for the broader Latin flavors it claimed to present on it's menu and we weren't disappointed. It is a charming smallish restaurant on the main downtown stroll in McMinnville and perfect for a warm summer evening exploration of this cute small town in the heart of Oregon wine country. Our favorites were the really big enough... More

Enjoyed everything we ordered. The stuffed dates were a great flavor combo, the piquillo peppers were awesome, as we're the patatas bravas and chorizo sliders. We odered too many things that came with the potatoes, so read description, or you will have way more starch than you can eat- but they are great! Favorite was Pork Migas. Nice kick, and... More

This restaurant was recommended by few locals, be sure to make reservations also call ahead if you want their paella as it takes 45 minutes to prepare. Our waiter wasn't very attentive to us and had forgot to put part of our order in and then blamed kitchen. Food was excellent.

We had an absolute blast at La Rambla. Later in the week, we are going to Gem, which is owned by the same people. If it's as good as La Rambla, this is going to be an incredible week in McMinnville, indeed. Tonight, we had four dishes to share and a bottle of wine. Let's get to the wine first.... More

Really delicious tapas, make sure to try the bacon wrapped dates. The paella was also good although a little on the spicy side. Prices were reasonable and the service was very good.

I have been to La Rambla several times now and I always recommend it to friends planning to visit the Willamette Valley wine country. I have never had a bad dish here. I love the tapas servings so I can try several dishes at a single meal. I especially recommend the garlic chile shrimp that Emeril Legasse liked so much!... More

The service and food were excellent! Our server Nicole paid attention to every detail and was very attentive. We had a large diverse group on a busy Friday night-and every single person raved about the service and food we received. We look forward to our return to LaRambla!
