A-OK definitely sums up this place. It was an early Sunday evening and my friend and I were down for a quick bite so tapas sounded perfect. The meal started off well with the table bread that was better than expected and had a really good infused olive oil. We ordered the fideos, which were really salty and lacked flavor. The garlic shrimp was well... garlicy... nothing to write home about. The mache salad had some pretty delish machego cheese. All in all.. average but not terrible.

Pros: Unusual and less unusual tapas

Cons: Salty food, the service is sub-par

Good tapas - not always authentic but still very good. We had really good service there and enjoyed the atmosphere.

Patatas bravas were addictive. A beet salad (in season) reminded me why I love beets. Filet was fine but not extraordinary.

I came here for the first time last night and it was so good! At first i wasn't sure because i hadn't heard of much of the stuff on the menu, or hadn't tried much of it before. But what we got was great! The spicy potatoes and the steak were good. We just ordered a bunch of stuff and shared with our group! It was great. Really great service too!

I go twice a month and will continue to do so. We had a server named Lindsay and she was great. The food is always cooked to perfection and the environment is a lot of fun.

This tapas restaurant is cozy and comfortable. We went on a Sunday evening and the crowd seemed mellow. The meatballs were tasty, spanish tortilla average. The sangria was decent, but nothing special. I really enjoyed the empanadillas special, filled with goat cheese and ahi tuna. The grilled asparagus was actually my favorite dish. Waitress was super friendly and was honest in admitting she was a vegeterian and unable to recommend a meat dish when we asked. It's really an inexpensive restaurant and overall an enjoyable experience.

The food is good compare to other Tapas places in San Francisco. Also, customers and waitress look very friendly, so no college kids parties going on.
However, the music was very loud and people have to speak loud. I could not hear what my friend was saying. Other groups had senior people, I wonder if they were conforterble.

i loved this place. it's intimate and crowded, so i recommend getting reservations ahead of time, but the professional service, quality of food, and value can not be beat. i was a sole diner who went to get a free sangria with my greenzebra coupon. they didn't have room for me at the bar, so i put my name down for a table. the hostess or manager or owner then promptly got me a chair to sit down on while i was waiting. the atmosphere was great. the decor included spanish paintings of dali and goya if i am not mistaken.

but on to the PIECE de RESISTANCE! the seared lamb slices!!!! i'm not a big lamb eater or fan, but of all the lamb i've ever had in my life (just a few times), these were the best, hands down. the lamb slices were seared perfectly such that you could still see the properly uncooked portions of the slices in the middle, a ruddy pink-to redish color while the borders were clearly slightly browned from the searing. and beneath the lamb slices were onions or something like onions which the waiter tried to explain to me were not onions but were similar to it and were specially prepared by sauteeing them under the lamb itself while it was cooking to absorb the flavoring of the meat. then, when you put the lamb slice in your mouth, you must savor the moment: pay attention to the moistness of the meat, not dry at all; delicate, not chewy or rough, and you can taste the full flavor of the lamb and sauteeing.

Cons: crowded, busy, small venue, not good for LARGE parties but 6-8 is okay

The weekend scene in this restaurant is of a cozy place with dim lights, filled with people and tapas on every table. This small restaurant takes reservations only till 7pm on weekends and after that you are free to walk in. We were promptly seated and as any spanish place dictates, the sangria followed. My partner wasn?t very happy with it, but nevertheless, it wasn?t bad either.
The menu had a variety of new dishes which were included recently and a faire of vegetarian and meat/seafood orders. However there was almost no choice in the chicken department. So we settled for the ?Spanish tortilla? which were awesome. Also had some eggplant with cheese filling topped with sesame-tomato jam which was not my favourite. The Empanadillas of Manchego was nice, but had a sharp goat cheese after taste. The sauteed shrimp in garlic and olive oil were the usual that you can find in any other tapas place.
So probably I wouldn?t be heading back to this location again, as there are better tapas places around. However you never know which get together takes me there again! Overall a place you can try if you are in the area, but can be missed if you know of a better tapas restaurant around!

Have you ever gone to a restaurant and in the middle of dinner and an interesting conversation, the server asks you to move to another table allegedly because there is a large party and there is no where else to put them, so you move then realize that actually there are a ton of tables in the back?

Me neither until last Thursday at Ramblas.

My boyfriend and I rarely go out for tapas, because usually they can be very meat and seafood heavy. We were impressed by the amount of veg options. I think there were more veg tapas than not. Each one was a taste sensation. The wild mushrooms were just the way my senora made them when I did a homestay in Spain! I have been trying to make them like that for years since, but have never been able to. Ramblas got it perfect, with just the right amount of pimenton (smoked paprika). The sangria isn't top-shelf, but it's tasty and at $22 per pitcher it serves three people easily. The place gets really packed. We made a reservation for 8 PM and because of missed bus connections didn't get there until 8:30. The hostess was still very gracious and got us seated right away. Our waitress (the girl with the wave tattoos) was very friendly and accomodating. I definitely reccommend this place for a great night out. Regarding the size of the tapas, if you're in a large group, they're probably going to seem small, but for two people, 4 tapas (plus the great fresh bread that comes first) are the perfect amount for a nice meal.

We live in the neighborhood and had all but written off this restaurant due to the inconsistent quality of the food. But when we took a chance here late one night in December 2006, the meal was surprisingly superb all around: tasty tortilla de patatas with a zesty aioli, rich morcilla sausage, etc. We returned again this evening, this time with friends, and the food was once again top notch! Today the highlights were: punchy gambas al ajillo, patatas fritas (crunchy golden perfection!), serrano ham with fig crostini, and churros con chocolate for dessert. If Ramblas has disappointed you in the past, I encourage you to give it another chance!

The food was fine but the tapas were tiny and priced the same as an entree somewhere else. The sangria tasted more like grape juice than wine

I really like this place - the tapas are reasonable priced and decent sized. The sangria is pretty good and they serve my husband's favorite beer from Thirsty Bear. Service has always been helpful and attentive, even when we just sat at the bar with a pitcher of beer and an order of olives.

I love the dishes (try ensalada de Persimmon and the Gambas al ajillo, bistec a la Parilla), and they have awesome freshly baked bread! More dishes = more fun to share. They have an awesome bar, and their drinks are delicious, plus they're a sister restaurant to Thirsy Bear Brewing Company, so you know the beer is awesome!!

I have not had the chance to try their sandwiches, but I've heard great things about them...grilled goodness!!

It's not a great place for children under 12, but it's fun for those who are open-minded to trying new foods...and it's a great hangout place.

Call thirty minutes ahead to be placed on their wait list or get reservations!

Cons: parking, but there are garages nearby

I first ate at Ramblas Tapas months ago. I could see the potential to be excellent, it's a comfortable neighborhood restaurant with delicious food, but the service was slow and the Sangria was warm. I'd heard there's a new manager and that things have really sharpened up, so I decided to give them another chance. I'm really glad I did. I recently talked my team from work into going to Ramblas with me. The service was top notch, and the food was terrific. What was s'posed to be hot was hot and what was s'posed to be cold was cold. We each ordered something different and shared. All 8 of us were completely satisfied in every way. I think we've found our new Favorite restaurant!

The place is just a big room with no character, and absolutely no ambience. The bartender served us WARM sangria - where on earth do you get WARM sangria ? The potatoes were just ok, the calamari was rubbery, and the shrimps had absolutely no flavor. Though, the paella was great! I don't think I want to go back there, ever.

We found Ramblas to be a surprisingly good value. It's a tapas place with a very definite urban, hip vibe to it. It's very much like Luna Park down the street in terms of atmosphere and decor. In fact, they're so similar in that regard that I get them confused with each other.

But compared to Luna Park, the fare here seems to be a bit heartier, if maybe a bit less decorative and refined. Overall, it's a good thing, though, because you can get an honest meal here for probably a bit less. One main entree per person plus appetizer and drinks will do for most people, and the food was very good. I had the stew, and it was excellent, and fairly priced.

This place also gets extremely crowded on most Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. There's a good reason for it, though-- it's good. Plan on bringing your earplugs and/or having to scream your conversation to your dinner guests if you go when it's busy. The hard floors and surfaces reflect everyone's conversation to the point where it's deafening during a full house. If you can go on a Sunday night or some other weeknight, that's probably when you can enjoy the best service and most comfort.

but instead it's just ok. At 10:30 on Saturday night, the place was packed so we thought that was good sign. Unfortunately, the service was slow and this is annoying when you're trying to eat dinner past dinnertime. We finally got our water and sangria and margaritas. The alcoholic drinks were terrible - it is truly sad that those pass for these well known drinks. It's not like they're trying to concoct something new. The vegetarian selections were aplenty so we held out hope for the food... To their credit, each dish arrived blazingly hot, which we really appreciated. But, each dish also kinda lacked flavor and pizazz. Overall we were quite disappointed and are unlikely to return due to the fact that there are too many places to eat in this city to tolerate this. The search for good tapas/spanish drinks continues...

Great tapas! Try the stuffed piquillo peppers. Happy hour is too good to be true. The drinks are $3.50 or $2.50! Cocktails and wine and beer! Great place to meet after work and get dinner after drinks.

Short and simple: Been here a few times, and this is the last and final visit.
food: unoriginal, overpriced and very bland. ordered their plate of cheese, was charged $9 for one slice of cheese sliced into 4 small quarters. Seafood paella tasted like it came out of a box mixed with tomatoe sauce with frozen seafood tossed in. Not worth $18.00! Empanadillas ordered were doughy and not crispy. The old chef knew what he was doing, so present chef, word of advice "go hunt him down!"
service: server looked clueless, she needs to go to barnes and nobles and buy the "Waitressing for Dummies" book. When one goes out, they want to be treated and served well, I could have gotten better service from a restaurant in CHINATOWN.
SAVE YOUR MONEY. There are tons of other tapas restaurants to choose from...

I have been here several times and always enjoyed the food. I particularly enjoyed the meat platter and the quail. Too bad they have changed the management and the chef and are now focusing more on a California fusion as opposed to good old authentic Spanish tapas. The food was less than mediocre. The cheese was 9$ for a plate of four very small slices of cheese. I could have went to Trader Joe's for a better quality Manchego for 5$ that would have been ten times as much cheese. The only reason we tipped 15% was because I have been a server for years and just couldn't bring myself to match the tip to the service. DO NOT GO HERE!!! Las Ramblas has been transformed from a near-authentic Spanish restaurant to a wanna-be "fine dining" establishment. (in the words of a waitstaff)

i just went to ramblas for the second time the other night and i had an OKAY time. our server was friendly, but quite unprofessional (we thought she was a busser at first!) all of the 4 plates we ordered were brought out at once, which rushed us through our meal and made for cold food. the servers stood about a foot behind my seat and talked through our entire meal which i thought was very rude. and the food was average. there are so many places to choose from for tapas, why go somewhere that is unimpressive?

perfect for before late night mission partying....everytime I've gone its but about 20 per person including tip, few pitchers of sangria. I haven't tried the bruch but hope its just as good. don't know how authentic it is but its still amazing food.

It gets crowded during weekend. Make sure you call ahead to make reservation. The young and good looking people mingle in the bar while they wait for their table. Most of the small plates are pretty tasty and reasonably priced ($6-10). Their Sangria is fabolous. You can request extra shots to boost 'em up. Some of the cons are it can get too loud. You have to shout to keep up with the crowd. Second, it can get too stuffed because of the open kitchen. We left the place smelled like grilled foods.

Well executed tapas in a divey/hip atmosphere. I especially like the black sausage, and the pan con tomate there is excellent. Kind of reminds me of Timos in its heyday, without the claustrophobic feeling of the back room. Better than thirsty bear, IMHO.

Dined at Ramblas for the second time recently and was a bit dissapointed. It's a cute place but the sangria was just ok and the tapas a bit uninspired. Had the patatas bravas, potato omellete, chicken ajillo and paella. All were decent but nothing stood out. Service was ok and the decor is decent but there's nothing that would make me come back again with other places like Zarzuela, Picaro and even it's sister restaurant, Thirsty Bear

Living around the corner from this place is a great treat because it means we can get good food anytime (and they're open late). Our favorites are the asparagus, mussels, and sea bass. The portions aren't big, but without alcohol we can get away with a $15/person bill. Of course, their cocktails are yummy--love the mojitos and the sangria ain't bad either. They also do well with large groups, but you need a reservation. I've gone from 2 to 18 and have had good and prompt service everytime.

Pros: reasonable price, small, but tasty menu, mojito

Cons: weekend wait

All I can say about Ramblas is three things. One I had the best Margarita there. They have a Pomegranite margarita that knocked me on my A#@. Also the food was really good make sure you have the Paella Las Ramblas it is so good and rich:) But I have to say the best part of the night was the waitress Jenn she rocked. She brought the food out perfect and always had a new drink waiting for us asap. Thank you Ramblas.

Pros: Drinks, Paella, Wait staff

After reading some reviews on line, I was a bit hesitant to go to Ramblas, especially on a Saturday night. I was very pleasantly surprised! We made reservations, and even changed the time, with no problems. We had a great table, and wonderful service. Our waitress was very responsive, and our food came very quickly. I've eaten at many tapas bars in the NYC/NJ area, and I'm happy to say, that this rivals even those. It definately has a slightly different flair than east coast tapas bars.

Definately check it out - the sangria is great!

I recently ate at Ramblas with a group of 6 people for a birthday celebration. The service was slow and innatentive, the food was mediocre, and the host was so rude!!! In the middle of dessert and unfinished drinks, he asked us when we were going to be done, because they "needed the table".
I've never been so offended at a restauraunt, ever! When I called the next day to speak with the manager, I was told they "could do nothing for me." I will never eat there again after being treated so rudely.
