Location and parking difficult, inside Disney Springs so plan accordingly, 10-20 walk depending where you park.
Service was okay.
Food was good.

Besides the noise and warm temperature, everything was great. Marcelo, our waiter was fantastic. Food was great, except the Flan, which was very blah.

Jaleo was a good value on Mahical Dining. It was very loud in the restaurant and I would have appreciated asking about dietary concerns. Our courses did not come out at the same time, however we always had something to try.

Had the magical dining. Which was a great way to sample many tapas dishes. Overall the food was excellent. Place was a little noisy for conversation and the bar couldn’t keep up with the meal when reordering drinks but overall will go again

Jose our waiter was excellent. He was close by an attentive. Atmosphere was energized. Food was very good especially patatas bravas, endives with cabra cheese and oranges. Usually we don't like pimientos, like to try new items, these pimientos didn't change our minds. We would go back again.

My wife and I enjoy trying different places during the Magical Dining time every year. The good ones we include in our list of restaurants for the rest of the year and Jaleo is definitely now on that list! We really enjoyed Jaleo because the food wasn’t the same old same old you could get anywhere. It was unique and authentic. Also are server was tremendous. We will definitely go back.

Nothing but five stars for this place down the line! Our server, MJ, provided my husband and I with a wonderful dining experience. He was very attentive and knowledgeable. The other staff members assisting MJ were also great. Service was top notch. Just the little things like our wobbly table. MJ must have had to fix it three times!

Food was also very delicious. We both did the Magical Dining experience. Portion sizes were just right. Food was amazing. Wine bottle options, great!

The venue is also beautiful. Next to us were the chefs making the delicious paella! I would love to come back next time in Florida. Absolutely enjoyed our experience at Jaleo.

So we got reservations for 8pm and we arrived at 7:45pm and were told that someone was at our table and we would try to seat us ASAP. Well 8pm came and went and by 8:15 we went back up and was told our table still had someone seated at it. By 8:32 we were finally seated. A full 45min after we arrived. Then we ordered a pitcher of sangria and we waited about 15min before finally asking our server where the sangria was, granted we were seated up top which was not very busy at the time. Finally it arrived and we spoke with a manager who said he would take care of it, which was great! The sangria was awesome we all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Next we decided to got the Magical Dining route and the food was absolutely amazing!! Every dish was bursting with flavor! We tried every Tapas on the menu for Magical Dining. Extremely impressed with the food.

We decided to order a few cocktails and history repeated itself. The cocktails took a very long time to arrive and again the manager Brian(who did a great job to handle the situation) said he would take care of them for us. The cocktails were well worth the wait.

Finally the dessert started to arrive and we were missing a dish, the Flan. The manager came over and said you know what guys we have messed up all night, don’t worry about paying we got you. Extremely impressed with him to admit their mistake and fall on the sword. Btw the Flan was well worth the wait!! Our server Dinora went above and beyond to make our night extremely enjoyable. She recommended dishes and drinks and was a pleasure to speak with. She is amazing.

In conclusion we will definitely be back many more times and have recommended to our friends just how you guys made a great experience for us out of a bad situation. Highly highly recommend Jaleo!! Thanks so much!

I call it the Church of Pork, so many ways to serve Jamon Iberico....I HIGHLY recommend Jaleo. It's a bit costly, however it's worth it for sure.

Always great service at Disney, Jaleo takes it to a whole new level. The 48 month aged ham is most definitely worth the additional costs. It's heaven in your mouth.

In my opinion, a Tapas Bar should have a friendly casual atmosphere with an opportunity to share food, friendship, and experiences. Jaleo fell short in 2 of these categories: a loud music selection inappropriate for this atmosphere making conversation difficult at best and seating arrangements which did not promote friendship and could be potentially physically dangerous. The food was wonderful, the service great. The experience not.

selection for Magical Dining was great, enjoyed must of my selections from the menu. The Paella was extremely dry, so I was offered another selection from the menu, I choose the Mussels which were excellent and the Flan was exceptional. Would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends and family. Looked at the regular menu I saw several items that I would like to try in the future.

I highly recommend Jaleo, and especially for Magical Dining; food was excellent, service was professional and excellent, our server, Jose, stayed on top of our service with advice, recommendations, and one dish that a guest didn't care for, he offered a substitute. I will be going again, soon.

We went for the Orlando Dining month. In Jaleo you could choose four different tapas snd one dessert. Everything was great until the last tapa which we ordered the paella tapa. It took too long to bring that paella tapa. Maybe paella should not be included in the dining menu, as we understand they are having issues in the flow of paella orders according to the way they cook them. Everything else was perfect and service was outstanding. It was our third time in Jaleo and surely we will continue going. Maybe we will have some reservations in the future in regard to order paella.

Expected more from a James Beard winner’s restaurant. However, the food was not fresh. Overdone shrimp and bland paella did not impress for the price. The inside colors were beautiful, but it felt like eating in a huge, bright cafeteria with noisy people and no music. Jaleo premiered beautifully, but once Chef Andres left - his staff did little to keep his vision alive. Very disappointing.

Jaleo is as just overall amazing. The food was great and so was the service. The food promotions are great and allows you to try several dishes before getting stuffed. Our server Jose was knowledgeable and hilarious while maintaining his professionalism. I would definitely go again.
