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

Excellent from the sangria to the tapas - top notch service. My husband - WHO NEVER EVER complements a restaurant - thought it was the best meal he's had in a very long time.

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

Last minute choice that worked out great. We had a fantastic waitress. I had a cocktail and shared three dishes with my husband. We all had desserts too. Fun place, lively but not too loud.
