Based on the rating criteria: food is fresh & creative, nice presentation, tastes good but not "out of this world." Service was attentive & friendly but I agree with another reviewer in that it does feel a bit rushed. The "rush pressure" is understandable & not blatantly rude, but annoying none the less. Price for money- quality ingredients/ good & decent pricing. Atmosphere- VERY small! Packed, good vibes, dimly lit, clean, simple rustic yet mod design. "Two very enthusiastic thumbs up."

I really don't understand what's so special about this place. Food is good but not as spectacular as they say, nothing special about the drinks, the place is usually packed so sitting comfortable is out of the question and most annoyingly - the waiters serve everything fast and rush you to eat so that they can get rid of you quickly to sell the table to someone else. I'll conclude saying it's not bad but it's not that good either - I give them a C-!

Las Ramblas is definitely a hidden gem. It's tiny and always packed...and the tapas are simply delicious. I can't recommend one dish specifically, we tried almost everything on the menu and it was excellent. Great bar with really interesting wine and beer choices. The atmosphere is really positive and it's really relaxed, makes for an unforgettable dining experience. Also, for a tapas bar, the portions are a great size. I can't wait to go back.

The duck sausage and the mussels are awesome!!!!! Also try the dessert wine selection- tiny place though so get there early if u don't want to end up standing outside drooling as you watch ppl eat! :)

There is nothing bad I can say about this place. The wait staff was really nice and helpful. The service was pretty quick. Food was amazing. Only thing that is a turn off or deal breaker for some people is it's a small space and tables are set up a bit close together. But the food is soooo worth it. Red pear sangria was great, and I loved the chicken turnovers...the cheese sauce was really good. The shrimp was really good too. It was all great. And they were smart bringing out the patatas bravas out last so we didn't fill up on potato before eating anything else. We ended up bring that home. I give this place a full thumbs up.

I love this place. It makes me feel like I am back in Madrid. But some things at Las Ramblas are even better. They have the best octopus I have ever eaten. Whether you go with pulpo con patatas or pulpo a la gallego you can't go wrong. Of course the patatas bravas are a must have. The only bad thing I can say about Las Ramblas is stay away from the strawberry sangria. Go with red pair instead.

Just came back from 3 amazing days in nyc. One of the highlights was a late dinner at Las Ramblas on Saturday night. We had to wait about an hour and it was worth every minute. We lucked out and got one of the 2 outdoor tables. The tapas and sangria were fabulous - if Spain could be summed up in a taste it would be the chorizo tapas, a bit of heat, temptimgly sweet with a zing of tartness. Sipping Sangria surrounded by the sights, sounds and people of the village is an experience that will linger for a long time to come. Thanks to everyone at Las Ramblas for a wonderful experience.
