    We celebrated our anniversary, as we had met at JALEO seven years before, and said goodbye to our favorite of Jose Andres’s locations. It was wonderful to see my favorite staff and managers and learn to which restaurants they will be going so we can follow them as well as begin to frequent some of the restaurants in Penn Quarter. We enjoy nothing more than the relaxed and festive JALEO and it sister restaurants, and the fantastic food and service at each. Meanwhile, we want to thank all the dedicated personnel a Crystal City for providing special experiences even when we just dropped in. We love you and we’re going to miss you.

    I wanted to visit this location as they were shuddering their doors after 17 years. After being quickly seated, we waited for approximately 15 minutes before we had to ask someone if we had a server. The gentleman checked with the front and said he would assist us. Although friendly, his service was horrible. He forgot orders, food arrived room temperature, incorrect dessert brought, and had to continously ask for the staples e.g., bread and dipping oil. A separate server came to our table and was instrumental in getting us the correct dessert. He was kind enough to clear our table which the busboys overlooked when walking thru the restaurant. This other waiter provided us with the check and chatted with us. He was outstanding and represented the restaurant well.

    This restaurant is about to close. The building is being torn down. We had to have a last meal there, because it held so many good memories. The space is beautiful and the food is beyond compare. It struck us how incredible the ingredients are at Jose's restaurants. We hope he has a space in Arlington again soon.

    Everything was outstanding at the Crystal City Jaleo, but with the restaurant closing soon this will be our last visit. One of the best restaurants in Arlington/Alexandria, it will be greatly missed.

    This is a great restaurant and I'm sad to know it is closing at the end of this week. Hopefully, another one of their restaurants will return to the Northern Virginia area -- be it in Crystal City or even Alexandria. The staff here and the food have always been among the absolute best! Thank you!
