Great tapas! We especially loved the cava sangria- it was a generous pitcher for 4 and was a great drink. Pan con tomate was delicious.

Great happy hour Tapas and drinks. I didn’t know what to expect from Jaleo, but the quality and creativity of the dishes were outstanding. Every taste bud in my mouth had a Jaleo party. I had two different cocktails, the craft behind them was remarkable.

Loved it!! We had several tapas-the shrimp were great -4 shrimp in a garlic butter sauce with a slice of Barcelona bread!! Also the bread with tomato, eggplant and roasted red pepper was delicious-we ordered it twice. Everything we had was wonderful. We also enjoyed sitting close to the fire to watch them making paella which was wonderful.

A favorite in Las Vegas, Jaleo's magnificent food and super chic atmosphere is a must when you visit. Although the clientele has morphed into more "bachelorette parties" than "serious foodies," the consistency of the menu remains high.

Food was delicious and service was impeccable. We loved every minute of the meal from start (Sangria) to finish (Paella). The only negative was they did not have a seafood paella but the chicken and mushroom paella was delicious. Our least favorite item that we ordered was the Rossejat which I still would have put at three and a half stars. The Carne Asada was by far and away the best and a must have. Close runner up was the Setas salteadas con puré de patatas (or mushrooms with an egg). Other items on the menu you should make sure you get include: Cono salmón crudo, Piquillos Julian de Tolosa, and the Chorizo casero.

The waitress who served my wife and I was friendly and effective. The Berenjenas were excellent, almost as good as the ones we had in Barcelona. We tried Ferran Adria's Aceitunas because they are renowned but they were a little too subtle for us. The Setas Salteadas con pure de patatas was absolutely remarkable. The Esparragos trigueros con romesco, gambas al ajillo and the Pulpo a la Galleaga a la parilla were very good. Tichi's Gazpacho was good but without the cubes of vegetables it was liking drinking tomato juice. The Flan al estilo con espuma de crema catalana brought back great memories of our trip to Spain.

Paella was dry and burnt. Portion was scarce. Server provided a replacement that was a lot better quality but the portion was even smaller. I chose Jaleo for the paella festival but the best thing about the experience was the drinks and dessert. I don’t plan to come back bc the price for a very small portion of paella didn’t inspire the feeling that I was in Barcelona. Paella was comped in the end, very nice gesture but it still fell short of what I was hoping for. The service was great, ambiance great, drinks great. In the end I had a great time regardless so thank you 🙏🏼

We've been coming to Jaleo since it opened (and I went to the original in DC for many years) and it has always been one of two "must go" places every time we are in Las Vegas (usually 2-3 times a year). This was our first visit back since the pandemic closure and it did not disappoint. The menu has changed a bit, but most everything is still there, even if slightly modified. The quality is every bit as excellent as it ever was. Service was good despite it being a very busy night. I'm a huge fan of Jose Andres and so not only is dining at Jaleo an excellent experience, it also makes me feel good to be supporting his ability to do the amazing charity work he does. When you can have an amazing meal and feel good about it too, that's a win-win.

Our waitress was incredibly helpful navigating the multitude of options on the menu! The food was wonderful, and the ambiance was festive, but not too loud. We got one of the chefs tasting menu, and it had all the star dishes. I got the goat cheese and ended up putting it on almost everything I ate, it was so good! Highly recommend
