Jaleo - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
Our waitress (Megan) said she did not want to bombard us with food so SHE decided not to submit our request for meals until SHE decided it was time for more food. We constantly had to ask her for the status of our orders before she put in our order. My order (salmon) never did arrive after more than a half hour and I cancelled it instead of waiting. It took a LONG time to get what we did order. Even drink orders were slow coming out even though there were not many people in the restaurant.
I lived with my Spanish wife in Spain for 9 years and this food is NOT authentic. Real Paella has Azafran (saffron) in it which makes the rice yellow -- not like the black rice served here. The Spanish tortilla is never served runny like the uncooked tortilla we were served -- even after asking them to cook it longer than normal to firm it up. Paella and tortilla are very popular in Spain and neither of these was anything like the REAL Spanish dishes. I will not mention the other dishes but if they cannot get these 2 right, what can you expect with the other items on the menu? I am NEVER going back.
We had the chef's tasting menu with the wine pairings. At times they seemed to be out of synch. The first wine arrived long before any food showed up. Later we were served another course and the wine didn't show up until we were almost done with that course of food. The one course that made almost no sense was the small burger. It was about 1-1/2 inches across, but about three inches tall (mostly bread height), the taste wasn't that great and it was paired with a wine that left a very bitter after-taste. The other courses were much better, but I wouldn't say that any of them were great. Portions were also odd, some of the tapas dishes seemed very large.
Gin and Tonic, Sangria
Salmon cones, twice
Tasting menu with wine pairings
Cocktails were fantastic, tasting menu was worth every penny. Each course was well executed, flavorful, and the correct portion size.
Service was great, attentive, and informed. Value was the big takeaway... great price for a dinner of that quality.
Salmon cones... bakers dozen please! Paella was perfect. Gambas con ajo.... wowed the whole table. Hamon! We wanted to end the meal with churros... but they don’t make them there... but they do downstairs at China Pablano... and they hooked us up. Had dessert at Jaleo and then churros downstairs compliments of the restaurant.
Will return. Definitely go here.
Food was less than spectacular with a spectacular price. The paella was greasy and not worth the $32 for a tasting size plate. They do not advise you that not all paella is available, only certain menu items. The only reason I chose this place was because I wanted chicken paella for New Years Eve dinner, but unfortunately only pork or lobster was available. I didn’t hear anyone else around me enjoying the experience either. What a waste of $200. I left there and got a burger.
Chef’s tasting was best value on the menu. Large portions and fantastic selection of dishes I thoroughly enjoyed but probably would not have selected on my own. Waitstaff was attentive without being overbearing. Very enjoyable experience for myself and my friends.
I've been a number of other Jose Andres restaurants and this was totally underwhelming - especially since this is Vegas and chef's should be upping their game. Food was mediocre and restaurant was very loud. If you are at the Cosmopolitan hotel try Beauty & Essex, which is right next door to Jaleo and infinitely more creative and delicious.
