Top-notch service, amazing food and even complimentary tapas sent our way to help celebrate my daughter’s birthday. Thanks for making it special Jaleo!
Wide ranging menu, tapas are good for sharing. Service is a bit unfocused; not a good restaurant if you're trying to have a quick meal.
I had not been to Jaleo since before 2013! I was so glad to be back! It’s still as good as I remember! Food, drinks, service, ALL OUTSTANDING!
Food awesome as usual. Service not so wonderful, but hoping that getting out of pandemic will help that. Staff need polish.
One of my favorite restaurants of all time. A large menu, so many good options to chose from. And great portion sizes! I was impressed by the value. Will definitely return every single time I'm back in DC.
Huge variety of tapas and small plates. Waiter was spot on with 3 dishes each. High prices but very high quality.
Each dish was delicious, as were the drinks. Service was also fantastic. It was clearly very busy on a Saturday night, but the timing of the dishes and the meal overall was perfect!
Always a fantastic experience
Food, service always top notch.
Amazing food amazing service
Tapas of all kinds…great sangria and we loved the atmosphere. Outdoor seating available :)
Wonderful food. A great experience. Highly recommended.
Excellent Spanish, love their white sangria, food very tasty,great mix of flavors and textures, extremely good service, refill water 4 times level of attention, nice building located very conveniently near Gallery Place DC Metro Station.
Love Jaleo! What more needs to be said? The food service and atmosphere are all terrific and happy to support a chef whose mission in life is to help others.
We had Julio’s tasting menu & wine flights.
There was a delicious variety to the foods, where the wine…I would have preferred a single selection over the options presented.
Our first time back in many months, The 1/2 pitcher of Cava Sangria was just right for two people. None of the tapas were disappointing. Bacon-wrapped dates and chicken croquettes were delicious. Chorizo patatas were also good. Seven dishes for two diners was adequate. Servers staged them nicely so the table was never too crowded with the little plates.
Jaleo never disappoints.
It was excellent. Food was fantastic and staff was attentive. Loved the rose sangria.
Always great quality and thete is no better resturantuer in country than Jose Andrés.
Amazing food and service as always!!
Friends in from out of town. Everything was excellent! I wonderful time!
Wonderful tapas. Will be back.
Our server and the overall service were just outstanding.
I was blown away by the food. We both had the classic sampler and I'm so glad we did. Everything was beautiful. I had a Cuba Libre for the first time in years and it did not disappoint. I would give Jaleo 10 stars in every category if I could. I just cannot say enough good things about it.
Food was just good
The Happy Hour Sangria is very diluted and tastes like sugar water
the best and friendly restaurant in DC for Spain food
First time visitors here, our party of five enjoyed ordering multiple courses of tapas throughout our dinner and everything was wonderful. The service was also outstanding, the sangria delicious and completed at the table for us, and desserts (not shared by us) just capped off an excellent evening.
So GOOD! Great service and food. Couldn't have been better. Love all the COVID precautions they're taking.
fabulous! must try Flauta de jamón ibérico de bellota
ask for Julian! great service helps with making food decision when you have such wonderful choices!
Amazing food and great service. Definitely on my must go places to eat when I visit again
Great Evening. Exceeded expectations. Thank you.
Imaginative and tasty food. It is fun having each person choose a different plate to share. And Jaleo has possibly the best deserts in DC!
Jaleo is always delicious. I have favorite dishes that I typically order but also try new choices. Last night, I tried dessert, flan. Never disappointed. Wine is excellent. Service is lovely.
We have been coming to Paleo for years. We order a variety of salads, veggie plates, meat and fish plates and then we share and pass around our choices. The food has always been delicious and inventive. The price for young and old is very reasonable and the service is friendly and knowledgeable.
To Jose' Andreas, you are my hero, both in the kitchen and in the world
Always a pleasure to eat at Jaleo. It's our favourite food in the DC area and we miss having it in Bethesda. Endive, spinach, potato omelette, garlic shrimp and more of our old favourites.
Our favorite restaurant in DC! The food is always delicious, great variety, and the service exceptional. We keep coming back.
Second time at Jaleo’s. Same awesome experience as the first. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and they made us feel special. Great service.
In addition, you have to show proof of Covid vaccination, that made us feel safe. Thank you for mandating this for your restaurant and doing your part to keep patrons and employees safe and your restaurant open during this pandemic.
Chef tasting experience was incredible
I love the food at Jaleo and the service was excellent.
Great experience at Jaleo - so happy they're now requiring proof of vaccination for safety and to reduce the spread of the Delta variant! I hadn't known ahead of time (open table needs to include that) but fortunately had a photo on my phone. Our server was amazing - cannot remember her name but she was so friendly, cheerful, and and checked on us (and the other customers) constantly - without being obtrusive. She made excellent suggestions as well. Everything was deliciously prepared. I highly recommend Jaleo although this neighborhood gem always fills up fast with reservations lately!
