Food was great and our server Austin B was awesome.
Great food - always a wonderful experience
Warm welcome. Attentive service (even on a very busy Friday night). And the food was as it always has been over the past 27 years ... outstanding. This is not over the top cooking. Rather its is creative and high quality. Real food for real people.
Food was outstanding as usual!! There’s a reason why my family picks this restaurant for many special occasions and celebrations!!
Great food! And nice place. Totally recommend it.
It's hard to go wrong with a meal at Jaleo. So many options for everyone. I tried the liquid olive for the first time. It was very flavorful and interesting and will be a definite in future trips. For around $40 each, we sampled 3 different courses, and the sides and salads were large enough to share. Overall a great meal.
Good food. Staff were great!
Loved the food. Service was amazing. Quick turnaround for a lunch when we needed to get back to work. Highly recommend.
Service was great. Food was above average.
Outstanding food and service! This is a place to go for great food just about any time of the day that they're open!
Tasty food and great service. Will definitely dine there again.
I love Jaleo! We were seated in a table far away from the main part of the restaurant so it was pretty quiet. Everything we ordered was delicious and the timing of bringing the dishes out worked well.
The truffle With slow cooked egg and mashed potatoes was perfect.
Fantastic neighborhood gem to explore great food perfect for sharing and paired with delicious wines from around the world. Our favorite for sure.
Easy and fun! Our reserved table was ready for us and they even anticipated others joining us by having extra seats all set. The white sangria is delicious! The server was friendly and patient as he waited for us to decide on our tapas choices. All in all a good time... looking forward to the next happy hour.
I have been to several Jose Andres restaurants in Virginia, DC, and New York and Jaleo is my favorite one. The Crystal City location has excellent service and is top notch all around. The selection of Spanish tapas is second to none. I especially enjoyed the quince lemonade and the flan. This place never disappoints and is a wonderful dining experience.
Best food within 5 miles of DCA. If you pick up someone at DCA during rush hours (4-8), go to Jaleo for dinner and park free. Enjoy your evening and then cruise home.
Awesome food, service and atmosphere. I love this place!
Amazing food and ambiance! The volume level was perfect! We did not have to shout across the table to talk to eachother or anything!
Amazing food and service! The hostess gave us the best table, too. Definitely worth reserving. We all had the Jose’s way tasting and drink menu and it was sooo decadent! It is A LOT of food though, so make sure you’re hungry!
Food was ok
It was wonderful!
We went during Restaurant Week, with four tapas items and one dessert per person, it was plenty of food.
Great food and drinks, great service, nice ambience
Great service-tops in all ways. Food was a treat.
We went for restaurant week and the food was incredible!!! Every dish was better than the last!
Overall I had a great experience, but I can't say I'll come back. The food was good... a bit under seasoned for me, but good. We went during restaurant week so we were able to choose 5 tapas from a list with various option. Great options! I recommend their chicken fritters and the chocolate custard-like dessert. The staff were amazing and the bathroom was spotless.
I just decided that tapas are not my thing 💁🏾♀️.
Family in for visit
Such a warm reception! Restaurant week so we had the prix fixe offering with 4 courses with 4 choices. Really delicious food. Kind, attentive service. Would go again in a heartbeat and take any age level with me. Great place!
The restaurant week menu was fantastic and a great value. We went twice during our stay on business.
Damyn is one of the chefs there and always takes care of us. What a fantastic experience.
Value for money is definitely an opinion. This place ain't cheap, but the food is outstanding. The Iberian pork used melts in your mouth, just so good. Every dish has a nice balance of flavors and is never boring. I do wish the beer selection was better but that is a relatively minor complaint. Going with the chef's choice is highly recommended and, truthfully, not that expensive for the quality/quantity of food you get.
Really nice food, however a bit pricey for portions in most cases.
Loved the decor and atmosphere as well. Service was well done.
Three of us came in at $225 with tip.
Jaleo fabulous dining experience
Great food and service
Need under $40 options on wine list
Menu is hard to read, the waitress wasn’t friendly, the food was subpar - especially for the price.
Very nice atmosphere and great service. Food was amazing and just kept coming!
Always love dining st Jaleo. This location is great - convenient to the metro and outside seating is always available when it's nice out.
Best meal for lunch in Crystal City. I will be returning soon with another group of co-workers.
Wow! Unlimited tapas in a festive New Years Eve atmosphere. The tapas were not compromised from their usual presentation and came quickly. The service we had from Oscar was outstanding. It was appropriately loud and musical. Well done.
Another fantastic NYE party with Jaleo's. Mac, our server was great, the food was outstanding, thanks to Chef Aaron and was delicious! Thanks to Nick Porter - manager & my favorite wine guy - Andy Myers for your professionalism and friendship over the years. Our group had over half of newbies to Jaleo's and they love it! Wishing all of the Jaleo - Crystal City team a Happy & Prosperous 2020!
