They did a terrific job accommodating my group, which included a friend with food allergies and another friend in a wheelchair.
We were a legend party and we changed our reservation to an earlier time last minute. Jaleo was happy to accommodate us, which we appreciated.
The food was great and the service impeccable.
Portions are a little small for the price, but hey, that’s tapas.
Great place for lunch or dinner. Have been here a few times. Always great food & solid service. Highly recommended.
The experience and food was amazing. Our waiter, Marc was wonderful. Definitely coming back.
I really enjoy eating here. It’s a part of my neighborhood. The vibrant atmosphere inside and the pleasant outside dining are only part of it. The people who work here make it special. They listen and craft your dining experience.
Great place- too much to choose from so we did the tasting menu- delicious! My only critique was that the music was too loud which made the noise level high. It was hard to have a conversation without yelling at each other.
Always good food, good service and good Sangria. Best Tapas place in the NCR !?
Continues to remove its better dishes from the menu, this time the quail.
Loved the food. Great location near the airport.
Wonderful. Flavorful. Exciting
Very disappointed in the oxtail paella. Undercooked rice, no flavor.
Had the classic tasting menu. Awesome is the only way to describe it
The food was not too great. The paella especially was very below or especially for the price. It was greasy and the aioli was like straight mayonnaise. It was not paella in any way.
Food was bland and lacked any wow factor. Not what I’m used to in José Andrés’ restaurants. Perhaps because it was the “daily lunch deal” they were rushed, but very disappointing.
Never disappointed at Jaleo. It’s been one of our favorites for years. Food is always spectacular and so is the service. However, Our server in this evening, Mark, was one of the best servers we have ever had! Will request sitting in his section from now on!
We got the tasting menu and it was fantastic, but we had to get a takeout container as there was a lot of food.
Fun to have tapas! Get to taste many dishes!
We had the 5-course tasting menu and it was windersyl!
Great tapas. We had the paella which was phenomenal.
Birthday excellent food and service
Another return visit which we thoroughly enjoyed.
It is great to visit an place where the staff are so positive, friendly helpful. They clearly enjoy working for Mr. Andres!
We enjoyed the scallops with butternut sauce, the fennel and apple salad, the cauliflower dish, and the Sangria. The calamari were great to eat with a little lemon by themselves. We did not care for the black sauce or the spicy red sauce. A more standard cocktail sauce would have been great to have as an option. The Catalan flan and whipped cream were great for dessert. We were outside, which fit the weather, but the traffic was noisy.
My out of town guests loved the variety of tastes and really enjoyed the experience.
Food and service were excellent. Waiter did a nice job of explaining tapas. Great place to meet
This location is very busy but the staff never got rattled and never forgot us. We had a lot of fun and will return for sure.
Great fun. Good food and drink.
My friend and I decided to get the "Jaleo Experience" chef's tasting menu. I have always enjoyed the tapas at this restaurant and it was really fun to taste so many items on the menu -- some familiar and some new to me. I definitely added a few new items to my list of favorites! It was a really fun experience to be surprised at every course. Our waiter did a wonderful job with the timing and presentation as well.
Did the Jose’s way experience and it did not disappoint!
Excellent food, solid service, helpful staff. The restaurant is quite noisy though
The waiter took very good care of our group and the Tapas Selectiins were very good!
We enjoyed the conos de salmon and the gambas al ajillo. Service was excellent!
Food is amazing. Quality of food is great.
Anniversary. What a terrific restaurant. Always a favorite for years. Never fails to bring great food and service. Highly, highly recommended
Great attentive service . We sat outside- fortunately because inside was way, way too loud. Really liked the food- interesting and tasty. Enjoyed the trout especially.
So many items to love - we ate their three times in one week because, well, so many items to love! Try the brussels sprout salad, the endive salad, the liquid olives, the Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Then order another serving of the warm brussels sprouts salad so you can figure out how to make it at home.
Jaleo is one of my "go-to" spots for lunch or dinner as it offers small plates that accommodate many special dietary needs and has variety.
Food was not good. The octopus was bland and had no taste. The meat was cold. The sangria was watered down. The best thing was the bread and oil.
Food and service was outstanding. My wife and I really enjoyed it!
Lunch menu has evolved to a less complicated ordering process. It would be great to have a traditional Spanish cuisine list and an other Americanized option. Jaleo os representing multiple cultures of Spain.
