My husband and I had a fantastic dinner at La Rambla. Our server made wonderful recommendations on tappas we shared. We especially enjoyed the stuffed peppers, the tortilla espanola and the sauteed mushrooms. Wish we lived in the area as I would love to return...someday to try the paella. Excellent food at a fair price. Highly recommend.More

We were recommended by locals to come here for Happy Hour this past Monday and order the Hot Mamma martini. We did and the drink was phenomenal! We ended up eating an early dinner there, sweet potato and lamb nachos and the pork stuffed poblano...chili dish. So flavorful. Our bartender Phil was a great mixologist and food server as well. Gave rating of a 4 because they really didn’t have happy hour foods, just a few drinks. If I was a local, I’d eat here weekly.More

Having written stellar reviews of La Rambla previously and having recommended it to numerous friends who were also quite pleased with their experience, we were appalled at our recent experience with out of town guests who are used to dining well, as are we. The...conversation at the table was how a restaurant with consistently glowing reviews, including ours, could have plummeted to this depth. New ownership? New chef who had no clue as to the culinary attributes of the prior chef? And this was a Friday night when you'd expect the restaurant to be at its best. The Oysters Rockefeller, which I'd enjoyed previously, should have been more appropriately titled Rockefeller as the oysters were essentially absent. At best, they size of BBs. In one of the shells, I couldn't even find one. The calamari, which we had also enjoyed on our previous visits, was so overcooked, hard, and over-breaded that both we and our guests sent our orders back. The balance of the meal was satisfactory, but that's far below the standard that we had experienced previously. The service was good, but not up to the caliber of prior dinners. It was more civilly going through the motions, barely acknowledging the returned calamari. The servers that we've had in our other meals there have been superb. It's a mystery. I'm very pleased to see that reviews continue to be excellent. If those reviews continue, we'll be happy to return.More

La Rambla is a very popular tapas restaurant and with good reason. We had one night in McMinnville and chose this restaurant above a few others. It was a wise/lucky decision. It is excellent. It is rare that when you order Tapas every single dish...was superb. The garlic shrimp, mussels and steak were perfect as was the mixed greens salad ( which in most other restaurants is exactly that: mixed greens and nothing more). Added this the service was friendly and professional. I recommend this restaurant highly. I rarely give 5 Stars but this restaurant deserves it. You will not be disappointed.More

Wonderful meal, vibrant ambiance. We stayed one night at an amazing B&B in McMinnville, the proprietor recommended La Rambla on her list of local restaurants weeks prior to our visit. Even then the best available reservation was 5:45pm, on a Tuesday in July, (we prefer...7:00 ~ 7:30). No other restaurant appealed as much. The restaurant was totally busy, bar and table seating. But our reservation was immediately confirmed. Being Spanish themed, we immediately went for a pitcher of red Sangria and the Paella to share. Both were great, the Sangria fresh and fruity with just a touch of Brandy. The Paella was a tasty traditional combo of Mussels, Prawns, Chicken & Chorizo with a mildly spiced paella rice. The menu says serves 2 to 3, trust them. This would easily satisfy two hungry people, or three lighter diners. Equally enjoyable was how busy the restaurant was, mostly locals from what we could see. Always a great indication in any town. We would recommend this restaurant, and just have. EnjoyMore

We recently visited the Amity, Oregon area and enjoyed a dinner at La Rambla. This restaurant is extremely popular, so we were happy to have an indoor seat by the front windows. There is a large selection of alcohol as well as non-alcoholic drinks. The...tapas are made to order and brought out as they are prepared. We enjoyed the empanadas, potatoes bravas, the pork croquettes, and the peppers. The potatoes were flavorful and well spiced. The croquettes had a crispy outer shell. The empanadas were good, and the stuffed peppers with cream sauce were delicious. Tip: If the weather is cool, you can brave it outside. We preferred the indoor seating as it is considerably warmer and more comfortable in cool temperatures.More

This was a night out with my wife on a brief visit to McMinnville. No reservations, so we took 2 seats at the bar because the place was packed. Bartender was a machine, she made everyone at the bar feel welcome and taken care of....The food was equally outstanding, each selection better than the last. Here’s where the story gets better, due to the awesome Sangrias, I left my credit card at the bar. Next day at noon I realized that I’d left it at La Rambla. I called and talked to Kathleen and she verified that it was in their register. My credit card was waiting for me in my mailbox when we returned from the trip! Can’t say enough about these people.More

We came without reservations & told they could sit us outside when a couple (who had called for a taxi) left their table. The couple refused to leave for another 25 mins. (even tho their table had been cleared), but the staff brought an extra...table out for us and were so attentive to us the whole night. We were so impressed with how they handled the awkward situation—and the food was amazing as usual!!! Love LaRambla.More

We had a lovely dinner at our local restaurant in McMinnville, the Willamette Valley's little foodie haven. La Rambla is our go-to local spot when we don't feel up to cooking but also is nice to share with friends and family. The food is delicious,...consistent, and inventive. The service is also always wonderful; but for a real treat, ask for Ole. He truly makes the dining experience even better with his authentic charm, graciousness and humor. My parents came to visit and frankly, they would not stop commenting on how great a meal it was and was ready to adopt Ole.More
