Food as always good. Did the classic tasting menu with wine pairings. Service could have been better, rushing dishes and wine tastings before we finished previous ones. Probably trying to rush us as a lot of people were waiting for tables

We have eaten at Jaleo many times. The quality of the food is fantastic and the consistency is remarkable. Four of us shared eight tapas and each one was delicious and inventive. Service was very gracious and friendly. The room is a bit noisy for my taste, but that is my only complaint. Jaleo remains my favorite Washington restaurant and a particularly good place for two couples to share great food.

Great meal. The only criticism I’d the table for 7 was very long and it made it difficult to converse with everyone. Food was great.

The food and service overall were good. But we were assigned to a table, which was extremely cold. Some of those tables should not be assigned to guests. It was not comfortable.

We enthusiastically recommend the Jaleo Experience. It did take over 2 hours but it was worth the time! The selections were excellent and weren’t necessarily options we would have tried if left to our own devices. The 13 course experience culminated with two amazing desserts...we were both stuffed, happy, and thrilled to have gotten to try so many traditional and modern Spanish tapas.
