The ambiance of the restaurant is quite nice and quiet. We had an early seating as we were driving to the coast that evening. Make a reservation because they were turning away people who just walked in. We do not eat meat or shellfish. Since the fresh fish of the day wasn't delivered because it was the day after July 4th we had to stick with cheese and veggies with some anchovies thrown in. Overall good tapas and nicely presented.

After eating at a thousand tapas places, we hoped for the best but were expecting average. What we got was a hugely pleasant experience on creative food, great ambience and terrific service. The crispy pork belly was to die for but we loved the empanadas, the Oregon mushroom cocas, cauliflower gratin, the octopus and the piquillo peppers.
Special mention Owland whose laidback Oregonian style was perfect for the place and the ambiance but still hugely efficient. Wine recommendations from him were spot on. We enjoyed La Rambla greatly in every regard and would come back for sure. In fact we did, the second night running.
A definite must try when in Willamette Valley!

Excellent quality of food. Appetizers through the main course. Amazing wine list.

Place got very full and noisy, but in a good way. Lots of wine drinkers.

Be prepared to pay for the excellent food and beverages though, it's not cheap. And shouldn't be!

La Rambla is a “don’t miss this one” on your visit to McMinnville! The food was excellent and the atmosphere unique. I was especially breath taken by the beautiful tulip shaped glass light fixtures & blue lights on the bar - captivating when combined with the array of tapas & superb sangria! Don’t miss this one!!!

Went to La Rambla on our first night in the wine country. The sald and appetizer were good but nothing memorable. Sat at the bar and had very happy service but the food left me wanting. We did have a nice paella but the ratio of rice to protein was really over the top. If getting full is your main priority then this may be a place you should try. But if you are looking for a more nuanced approach to Spanish cooking then leave thois one off your list.
