The tapas selection was fantastic. The food quality was great as was the service. The dining experience was relaxed and un-rushed. We had the $70 6 course selection, each course had 2-3 tapas dishes and tasted great. Very full by the end! We sat outside which was lovely.

We were seated outside, we had to wait for about 15 minutes for the first team member to offer us water, then 5 minutes later the waiter came. During our experience we had lapses of up to 20 minutes without any service. After our entree was served we did not receive any table service for 30 minutes. Not even to ask if everything was ok. Then it was another wait to get the check. Our total experience time was from 7:00pm to 9:45PM. The food is amazing, we visited the same restaurant at Vegas. We had more courses and the waiting time was understandable. I think there is room for improvement. They recently open this location... hope you can do something about this.

Great fans of Jose Andres, both for his food and his humanitarian efforts! So of course we went to support his new restaurant! Great wine selection and the tapas, although a bit pricey, were amazingly delicious! We had the patatas arrugadas with two dipping sauces, the onion slices with pine nuts and queso cabrales, and the sausage and white beans all of which were to die for! Will definitely eat at Jaleo again!

Don't be afraid to try something new! We ordered four different dishes for two of us to share and were gifted a sample of another dish by a server. Each and every bite of the five different dishes was delicious! I would not hesitate to bring guests here, as long as they like trying new things. We tried the Jamon Bellota Mano (ham carved tableside), Pimientos Piquillo (peppers stuffed with mushroom & goat cheese), Ensalada Campera (salad with greens, tomato, onion, olives, boiled egg, and green beans), Arroz Pollo y Setas (paella with mushrooms and chicken), and Bunuelos de Bacalao (fried cod and potato fritters with honey alioli). Service was wonderful and they came by our table several times to see if we needed anything.

It was a warm day, but noticed the outdoor seating was shaded, so we took a chance and asked to be seated outside. That was a great choice since no one else was out there but us! There were large ceiling fans above us and there was a nice breeze. We had a marvelous view of the water and lingered after the meal to savor our surroundings.

The venue location is nice and we got seated outside on the patio which was considerably less quiet than inside. We got one jaleo tour and one seafood paella. The tour was plenty of food and pretty good, though the spinach course was over-salted. We were told that the tour also came with paella, so when a tiny portion of paella was placed in front of my hubs, I told him to go ahead and eat his and that mine would arrive eventually...whoops, guess not! But to be quite honest we were so full off of his tour and the sangria pitcher that couldn’t have eaten another bite. The paella was also over salted like it had been allowed to cook down too much and too much water evaporated. All in all it was nice to try it out being a new restaurant and all, but for the price and not equivalent execution level, we probably wouldn’t go back.

Expensive considering the food style (tapas), service confusing and the noise is extremely loud, specially at the back of the house. We were celebrating our anniversary and despite the observation included when I did the reservation, nothing special happened, not even an compliment added. Very disappointing.

One of the best meals I have ever had. Everything was delectable and expertly prepared, with no detail left to chance. The squid ink “pasta” was delicious as were the various quesos and the spreadable chorizo. We tried every sangria they had and none of them left us disappointed.

Jaleo was a fun experience and great ambiance. The portions are very small. It’s best if you go with a big group and share to be able to try a variety of things. We did enjoy the paella a lot and the tortilla de patata (Spanish omelette) was the best bang for your buck as far as tapas. Sangria was pricey and tasted a little watered down, would not recommend. Overall we will most likely go back again.

We have the opportunity to eat here in more than one occasion, food is delicious but when doing Jaleo experience vs. Joses way I find the latter pricey with less amount on the servings. You cannot even choose at least one tapas of your choice without getting charge extra for it. . My suggestion will be for you to do Jaleo experience- great price for what you get.

WOW!

What a memorable experience !
First of all if it’s your first time the tasting is the way to go! It gave us every part of the menu we wanted and the value was amazing!

I want to personally thank Oswaldo for a wonderful experience from explaining each dish and making the whole dinner a journey rather then just a regular tasting. The drink recommendations were on point and everything was just spectacular!!

Can’t wait to go back!

Love the ambience. The tapas were so delicious, everything we had was great. We ordered the red sangria pitcher for three people and we each got at least 3-4 glasses of sangria. The Sangira was really good and good value. The waiter was great, good service. Great for date night and girls night out. Will definitely go back.
