I thought the food was good but not great, and expensive for small portion sizes. The restaurant and outdoor seating is beautiful and cocktails were excellent!

Jaleo is always amazing. I went with my partner to celebrate our anniversary. We had the most amazing drinks (Old Cubans and Margaritas). The food was amazing. Highly recommend the goat cheese stuffed peppers and the cod bites. Dessert was divine, it was goat cheese cheesecake, it was to die for. Our server, Caroline, was amazing. She was so friendly and helpful, she made us laugh, gave us the best recommendations, and made the experience so much better.

The place for tapas. The menu is extensive and there are a lot of options. I went with the Jaleo Experience which I definitely recommend in order to try a little of everything. Definitely a spot to try at Disney Springs.

JC was a professional, delivering excellent service, not to be out done with the food! Wine list is extremely complimentary to food, only complaint I could have is it was loud inside, didn’t bother us but sometimes hard to hear staff taking to use. Would recommend this place to everyone!

The food was very good, however the service was very slow. The food took a long time to come out and we had basically finished eating when the last item came out. Our server was very nice and attentive and tried to hurry the kitchen along.

This was my first time at Jaleo and it won’t be my last. I booked an outdoor table and was accommodated accordingly even though the weather was a bit chilly. My server Carlos went above and beyond from the time sat down til the time I left. He explained the concept of the restaurant, the menu, and made excellent recommendations on what to order. I ordered the Coca de escalivado con boquerones (Catalan “coca” with roasted vegetables and boquerones), Buñuleos de bacalao con alioli de miel (Fried cod and potato fritters with honey alioli), Calamares a la romana con alioli de tinta (Andalusian style fried squid with squid ink alioli), and Rossejat (Traditional “paella” made with toasted pasta with shrimp and squid sofrit). Everything was fantastic! Next time I will try other tapas, but was very full and satisfied 3 tapas and one paella dish. Oh and the sangrias were all fantastic as well! Bravo Jaleo!

Went with family from California. We are all big fans of Jose Andres and his philanthropic endeavors. The tapas and paella were amazing! The garlic shrimp, bacalaitos, bean salad, patatas bravas were so flavorful Can’t wait to return.

Two words: tourist trap.

We had exceptional service but that cannot make up for cafeteria ambiance and overpriced unremarkable food.

This was a “one and done” restaurant for us which is disappointing as we love tapas restaurants.

We had a wonderful dinner at Jaleo. We were seated at an outside table which was wonderful. Noise level was low making conversations nice. Inside the restaurant there seemed to be more noise. Our dinner consisted of a series of small plates, each one better than the previous. We started with the Super flauta - fantastic. We also had the sliced apple and fennel salad which was crisp, light and delicious. We then had the carne asada and the roasted potatoes. Both were cooked perfectly and the sauces complex, smoky and incredible. We finished with the Selva negra, a dessert created to honor the 50th anniversary of WDW. Tis was the perfect ending to a fantastic meal. This was our second visit to Jaleo and we will definitely return!

Made a res here before going to House of Blues and truly loved it! The cheese plate was fantastic, the regular sangria was a fun, festive must-order, and the bean salad was something different. Came out quickly before the show. Waitstaff was so sweet and friendly. Didn't love the rose sangria but loved the regular one. The head-on shrimp special was spectacular and the papas bravas was delicious. Would definitely return! Loved the outdoor dining with the heat lamps.

Excellent service and every we had was great. Who would have thought bourbon and cava would pair but they created a new rail in my cocktail library. Only could have wished for a few more selections on the tapas.

While a couple of us had eaten there before, most of our party was there for the first time.

The food and service were,without question, a worthwhile experience and we truly appreciate the hard work of the staff at Jaleo at Disney Springs. It was a truly magical experience.

What a amazing experience! Food was outstanding and the service was on point! We were a party of 10 and we had one server who’s name I wish I remembered but she was amazing! Gave us such a intimate experience even though we were a large table! We are locals and try not to go to Disney Springs on a holiday week but we’ll worth the crowds!

Totally recommend this restaurant, will not disappoint!

Overpriced for the quality, service was lacking. For a Jose Andres property, it’s woefully behind his others.

Food does not meet expectations from one of the best chefs from Spain, some things are very good others not quite as good sometimes very salty. The Paella is not cooked well, rice was “Caldoso” still very moist needed more time in the flame…. Service was very good!!

We came because we were celebrating my sister's birthday! The ambiance was good and the service was good but not fenomenal. I might say that what is 1000% worthy is the paella!! It was one of the best paella that we have tried! I would definitely recommend it and definitely come here again to have it!
