    This place rocks, not a quiet spot but good energy! The food was amazing, we ordered 6 items and shared. Lamb cooked perfectly! The sangria was pretty good but the dark stormy drink was really tasty. Finished with a nice cappuccino and wonderful flan. We will definitely return in the near future.

    My husband and I hit up Jaleo this past Wednesday night while in Vegas. We immediately loved the energy, the ambiance. Our waiter was spot-on with drink and food recommendations. Being a tapas place, settle in, order about 5 plates, and then hang on to a menu to order more. The shrimp in garlic was incredible, tiny chicken fritters (served in a shoe!) were to die for, and we finished with the cheese and fig jam. In addition to Olives, we now have a new must-do every time we are in Vegas. Paella!!!!

    Overall we loved our food and we had great service. We had a nice table that had banquette seating. The only thing we did not enjoy was the noise level. It is fun to be in a vibrant restaurant, but the noise was at a headache inducing level and made you feel bothered instead of energized.

    Went in expecting to be wowed. Unfortunately, the paella was tasteless, except for the overabundance of salt. The other tapas were good - iberico ham was flavorful, of course; the roasted red pepper and eggplant was nice; when the gambas finally arrived the garlic/tomato sauce was different and a good version; but, overall nothing stood out. Very extensive wine list, and a good bottle salvaged the evening. I said I would recommend above, because it wasn't a bad experience, and maybe it was just an off night. We won't be going back, however, as there are too many other dining options competing for our money when in Vegas.

    Service will need to be more promptly, waiter did not came by often. Level of noise was pretty high could not hear our own conversation due to booths are very closed to each others. Food was good and savoryi will go back to try more dishes to have a better comparison with other spaniards restaurants in the city

    I have been to the DC Jaleo and this one is ok but it can't compare to DC. Prices are higher, menu is smaller, and some of the dishes have been changed (potato chips for patatas bravas instead of fried potato pieces). Presentations were unique and interesting. It was very loud but we were there on a Friday night with several bachelor parties.

    I've been looking forward to eating at one of Jose Andre's restaurant - finally did on Saturday, Sept 27th. I expected so much more than the food actually was. Nothing exceptional about any of the Tapas served. Don't get me wrong, the food was good but I expected a WOW! Which I didn't get. My husband and I enjoy eating at top restaurants so we know about food, Jaleo was disappointing. We've eaten better Spaniard Tapas in NYC.

    My hubby and I are not familiar with Spanish tapas, but wanted to try something new. SO happy that we chose Jaleo! It's located in the Cosmopolitan, red beaded decor and an open layout. The staff helped us pick out tasty choices, and we were delighted w/ the flavors!! I started with a cocktail, the Dark & Stormy made w/ rum ice cubes and ginger beer -SO GOOD. The Jamon Iberico, dry-cured ham from the free-range acorn-fed (only!) ibérico pigs of Spain- AWESOME. The shrimp Gambas al ajillo was GREAT. The Paella de pollo y setas silvestres (chicken and mushroom) was PERFECT. We weren’t sure how desserts would be, but my husband really liked the pan con chocolate. I had the flan with Catalan cream, and it was the BEST flan I have ever had.

    this is a place to hang out with friends have a good couple of cocktails and tapas (bites) rather than wine and dinner, and of course the dessert and after dinner drinks make a difference. So definitely a place to go back "again" bring friends, keep that romantic date occasion for somewhere else with delicate food and a less casual ambience. This is an awesome familiar friend place to enjoy the evening.

    The restaurant has a lively environment, it is fun and a great people watching place. The server and staff were very attentive. The food was oily, overdone, and very disappointing. Although, I believe they are trying to be authentic, they have missed the mark. The best way I can explain it, is the food did not taste clean. The flavor did not mesh, most things tasted the same. Since we were in Spain this year, maybe our expectations were a little too high. I would sit at the bar next time, enjoy the atmosphere and skip the dinner.

    I've been here many times and continue to enjoy each and every visit. Service this time was a little over eager but still knowledgeable and helpful. Wine list has some real gems, especially if you are willing to go a little deeper into Spanish wines. Older Spanish whites are very much a delight. Food as always was top notch... specials remain a great place to start... and you just have to try the jamon... happy pigs make happy ham.

    2 weeks on the road, traversing the Southwest and ending with an R&R in Vegas. We are huge fans of Jose Andres, and this meal was a treat after a long day of pool and rest. Paella was delicious, service was adequate, atmosphere inside the Cosmo is like most other Vegas eateries (read: mall-like). Try the Ferran Adria/Jose Andres "olives," and the pan de tomate is a must. Pricey but well worth it and the servers can get you on the road in time to hit an early show. FYI: If you want seating at the Chef's Table (e by Jose Andres) you need to work with the bookers well in advance. But that said, regular dining at Jaleo was very satisfying and a real treat - a highlight of the Vegas leg of our trip.

    Wouldn't recommend the restaurant to anyone that is looking for a "true" dining experience. The service is poor at best and besides the first three tapas the time it takes to get your food is forever. During the 90min dining experience we must have seen our server for 5min top and that included dropping of the check. Had some sangria that needed extra ice thankfully we had "leftover" ice in the drink from our oldest son. Requested Dessert menu and waited 15min!!!! to get one, only then because we had asked over and over again. Expected better considering the prices that are being charged. Management walked the dining room but never once stopped by the table to inquire about our experience.

    Intro to tapas was at Jaleo in Washington D.C. It was great then and still is. Did the one in Arlington (Crystal City) VA also. No disappointment there either. Now the experience of wonderful tapas continues in Las Vegas at Vegas prices but worth it. Like tapas, Jose Andres and his staff are masters.
