The paella was super salty. But they were receptive. The server told the chef who tried it and agreed. They took it off the bill and we ordered something else. The garlic prawns were good.

I thought the food was disappointing. The flavors were generally bland while some dishes were over salted. I thought the food quality and dining experience were much better at Bazaar in LA. The sommelier was very good and the pan de chocolat was a great dessert.

Not truly traditional Spanish food. Different from what I expected. I considered the paella more of a rice with stuff on it dish rather than complete piece.

We have visited this and the DC locations in the past. We always come back for the food. Some of the simplest preparations are some of the tastiest but plenty of “restaurant” preparations that also impress. We always share a number of tapas. This time the dessert stood out which is rare for us. The “Pan con chocolate” is a Chocolate custard with caramelized bread, olive oil and brioche ice cream. Is is both Sweet and savory. Creamy and crunchy. Just fantastic and fun way to end a great night. Our compliments to the chef.

Went for one thing... Paella. At search for best chefs in Vegas the Jaleo was listed. I love Paella so this seemed like a good bet. Knowing this dish can take about an hour, I was not on any hurry. The waiters and management wanted to rush you out. The Paella was pre prepared and a small scoop was served and forgettable flavor.... rice was actually hard and not completely done.

Nothing more good to say about it ..

If you want amazing Paella, go directly to JULIAN SERRANO TAPAS @Aria

It was pretty good. Not outstanding, but good. Service was decent. Prices were high, which is normal for Vegas. Would go back. Ambiance was great, but it is open to the mall so there is extra noise.

My fiancé and I did the sample tasting menu. $75/person and they bring you 5-7 small plates including dessert. Food was honestly meh, it just wasn’t our taste, not bad just different. When we didn’t like a dish the manger came out and replaced with another one. Service was amazing. Food was nothing to rave about. However, the margaritas were 100% on point. Highly recommend, they’re smoky (Mezcal) and a bit spicy. Will definitely return for HH margaritas.

Just an off night. Service was OK but not what I expect from a Vegas strip tapas restaurant. The food was OK but the shrimp paella was not so good.

The food is always great here, but this is the first time I noticed that the portions are very small and unless you are 4 people or less, you need to double order. It wasn't until we got the last 2 dishes that we started to feel that we'd eaten close to enough and we didn't have any big eaters in our group. The special drinks are quite pricey. The Sangria isn't that great and at the cost of a carafe is not worth it. Usually the restaurant is packed when we've gone, but it wasn't that crowded, but still noisy enough that conversation was difficult.

Great ambiance, great food (we did Chef Andreas' tasting menu, which I heavily recommend if you've never been and want to explore Spanish food), great service (our glasses were never dry for long), hosts were very considerate and thoughtful - we brought our infant with us and they gave us an option of where we wanted to sit to have more space (and it was a busy Sat night). It was an energetic atmosphere which we loved, but our baby was still able to sleep, so it wasn't terribly loud. I would absolutely recommend this place - and he sure to try the cocktails and paella too!

Negatively shocking experience. I got embarrassed before my husband for such poor choice for our anniversary dinner. Every single dish was over salted, over fried, not hot. Plates and silverware were not perfectly clean. Restaurant is super noisy. Different spots of restaurant are freezing cold or dessert hot. Never again!

Absolutely amazing !
My husband and I stopped for an early dinner. Each plate that came out was better than the next ! We started with the carved bellota with manchego cheese and pan tostado, that was a must have! The salmon tartare appetizer was unbelievable, gambos al ajillo literally melted in our mouths! And the paella we shared was cooked to perfection!
We will definitely be back again!

For claiming to offer/specializing in paella- certainly not the case. Too many rules in be able to order and don’t offer any shellfish options in their paella - so no paella not very good. The rest of the menu was good.

The concept and execution are great at Jaleo: Spanish tapas at an elevated level of creativity. Everything was delicious, but the tiny portions, per dollar, made us chuckle since we have enjoyed wonderful tapas at the local kiosks in Barcelona for a fraction of the price. We don't have large eating capacities so, in the interest of trying several items, we thought we'd share a variety of dishes. One offering is a cone of salmon, but the waiter laughed when we asked to share it, explaining it would be too small to share. He was right. When it was delivered, it actually got a laugh from the neighbors to our sides because it was so miniature. For $5.00, it was one tiny bite. We try not to think of fine dining in these terms, but it was hard not to calculate this as $5 per bite, which made us feel more than decadent. This dish was almost too small to taste, but it did have nice balance and flavor in that one second it existed in our mouths.

The ambience was appropriate for a fun, energetic open restaurant just off the lobby of a posh Vegas hotel. Nothing romantic or atmospheric, in our opinions, and it would have been just right had we not been seated under the brightest lights in the place. Either that one bulb was accidentally a higher wattage than all the others, or else the restaurant designers had some other specific reason for blasting extra light at that table.

Service is fun. It seems that every dish is delivered in groups of at least two servers, even if the second server is carrying something to another table after they leave your table. It's a bit of theatricality that we appreciated with a giggle. Nothing serious about it...just a nice touch.

A few dishes and 3 glasses of wine for the table was over $100 with tip. FYI.
