Food was delicious! And the service was excellent!
I’ve been here a handful of times and the food is not consistent. This visit it was pretty good though. One thing that is consistent is the sangria’s. Unfortunately, they are consistently bad and watered down. This’ll probably be my last trip to Jaleo. It’s decent but not worth the price.
Loved the place, great lighting, vibrant colors, nice decor. Service was good, food came fast, server was attentive but didn’t rush us. The food was only mediocre, was a bit disappointed. The red sangria was outstanding however.
Good food. Reasonable prices. Great service. Lamb sandwich and gazpacho were very tasty.
Great service, great food, great atmosphere and very unique!
Go... go... and go! Well worth it! Don't think twice about it. The menu has just about something for everyone and will not disappoint.
Absolutely amazing! My boyfriend and I dined at Jaleo to celebrate our 2 year anniversary and literally everything that we ordered was cooked to perfection! We ordered from the Sunday Tapas menu where you select an item from about 4-5 different categories including dessert and we enjoyed everything! We wanted to personally thank the chef ourselves after eating. The service was great, the atmosphere and décor of the restaurant is really nice and overall our experience was great. We plan to dine there often in the near future.
Great service, great food!
The tapas were enjoyable, but nothing to break the budget over. The staff was incredibly friendly. Overall, if price isn’t a large factor, this is a great spot.
The four of us enjoyed all the dishes we had. Especially recommend the cauliflower, the Japanese eggplant, and the rice dessert with lemon.
Great food and sangria. Sharing plates allowed 2 of us to taste a good variety.
I want to support any business of Jose Andres because I appreciate how he fed Puerto Rico.
Tried one of the “tasting” menus and enjoyed the selection. Service was slow to get started but worked out ok. Good wine choices but overpriced.
Wonderful meal. Surprising tastes on every plate. Loved it.
Jaleo is one of our favorites. It had been awhile so glad we made it back .
Great service, wonderful food, we let the chef choose our dinner and ate too much
Slow service two times last week over lunch hour. Both times were with items ordered off the Rapid Menu. Food good, but uneven service made for awkward business lunches.
The food was spectacular, each dish better than the last ! Service was efficient and great as well. Never disappoints.
Jaleo is one of the best places in the DC area for tapas and paellas. It is informal and the food is good. Service has become more spotty over time, but is always friendly even when somewhat slow. Our major complaint is that the kitchen sometimes makes dishes too salty. We got the same tapa twice because it was so good the first time. But the second time the kitchen had over salted it and my wife would not eat it. Tell the wait staff to ask the kitchen to go easy on the salt.
The food here was terrific. We ordered the green salad and a three-cheeses plate to share. The combination of ingredients is fantastic. Really good food experience.
Absolutely perfect - as always! We had Easter dinner here and completely were happy with everything.
Gorgeous food and service, as always. 💜💜💜
Good service and good advice about selection tapas items
This is one of our go-to places where the food and drink are always good.
Perfect stop in our way to DC. Good real Spanish food
This was the fourth time I've been to Jaleo Crystal City, and it's never let me down.
Too loud, but that was okay as we were just getting to know one another. Food is so delicious and servers are speedy and gracious. We had a great time!
Just...Excellent food! I was told to try the Gambas al Ajillo. Delicious! But, the White sangria, the cheese and Iberico were so good! I could not stop tasting my friends also. Her Brusel Sprouts salad was out of this world. I liked it so much that next day I went solo for lunch and enjoyed wonderful food once more. Looking forward to going back to Arlington next week and try new dishes. Prices are a little high. Ambiance was good and relaxing both times. PLEASE BRING BACK THE ALMOND CAKE!!!!!
Great place. Interesting food. Love the atmosphere. Quick service.
Jaleo in Crystal City consistently offers fine tapas cuisine and responsive service. The gazpacho is outstanding, and a superb wine list complements the food. Parking is available immediately across the street.
We've been going to Jaleo for years and it has remained consistently great throughout that time. I had dinner with my friends/business colleagues and because they had worked and lived in the Barcelona area a few years ago, this was a special treat for them. Great service and wonderful food. Overall, this was an outstanding evening!
Great food and drink! NoVa restaurant special was great value
We went to Jaleo for a birthday celebration. Many of us either lived or traveled frequently to Spain. Jaleo gave us our authentic tapas fix. Our waiter was great!
Great food and service! Took a group of clients here and they loved it.
Jaleo is one of the gems in the DC area....it just never disappoints!
I love this place. I recommended it to several groups of principal associations who were in town for the national leaders conference this past weekend. Just brought my state principal association there for lunch. Everyone in the group agreed with me & we’ll all be back. (crystal city location)
Personally nine years ago, the white sangria is the drink that swept a first date off her feet. I call her my wife now. (DC location)
Seriously, this place is fantastic. Don’t punish yourself—-go eat here! Chef Jose’ Ole’!
Super attentive staff! Great lunch with creative food. I thought tapas meant little plates of food. We had so much food we had to ask for to go boxes. We loved our experience at Jaleo and can’t wait to go back.
5 stars as always :)
My family and I had a wonderful time over 2.5 hours of José’s Way tasting menus. I even brought my two grandchildren (ages 2 and 3) and they really enjoyed themselves.
I have been to this restaurant twice and it never disappoints. The food it delicious and the sangria is amazing. Very attentive wait staff as well.
