    We decided to do the Magical Dining with friends, which included four courses. The paella, which is the dish Jaleo is known for, took 28 minutes to get to our table. Three out of the five adults at our table ordered the paella which meant the other two adults had to wait approximately 20 minutes until we received our food so we could all eat together.

    We went to Jaleo during Orlando Magical Dining Month. The prix fixe menu had four courses, which was nice. Everything we ordered was so flavorful and we shared all we could. For the first course, we ordered croquetas de pollo, pan con tomate and the Manchego cheese. All three were very good but the croquetas de pollo definitely stood out. The cheese inside was delicious and they were presented on this adorable pillow-shaped ceramic plate. For the second course we ordered two ensalada verdes and espinaca a la Catalana. The ensalada verdes were large salads for a four course meal and could have served as a stand-alone lunch salad. For the main course, we ordered two Chorizo Casero con Puré de Patatas al Aceite de Oliva and Pollo con Pisto Manchego. I personally don’t eat chorizo so I can’t comment on it but the Patatas were very good. The Pollo con Pisto Manchego was delicious too. The crispiness of the chicken skin was perfection. For the dessert course, we ordered two Flans and a Pan con Chocolate. The flan was extra light and creamy. The Pan con Chocolate was a mix of flavors that were a delicious surprise. The pan was caramelized and paired lovely with the brioche ice cream. The chocolate custard tasted as if it was made from dark chocolate, which I love. Overall, the service was nice. They spread out the courses with enough time to digest in between and not feel rushed. I would definitely recommend going there and I look forward to returning and trying some of the other menu items that sound interesting. Muchas gracias to Jose Andres for providing Orlando with the opportunity to try his delicious creations.

    It was our first time here and had an excellent lunch. We received wonderful service as well. We’d definitely come back to try other dishes. For a light eater, 1 order of tapas and a soup/salad will probably be filling enough. The frozen sangria was really good!

    Great concept, excellent service, and good food. I don't recommend patatas bravas, it didn't live up to my expectations. One issue we had was that we saw a small fly in one of the plates right around we were done. Given it is summer in Florida, we were not upset with that

    It’s a beautiful place. The service was good , we had croquettes they were delish and so were the cod fritters. However the paella was under cooked and not tasty. Plus they give you so little. We spend over $500 and left hungry. I would recurre croquettes and fritters.

    We have done at the Orlando Jaleo location many time as locals. Our experience on September 23 was the best meal and occasion we ever had. Our server, Mariana G, introduced herself and ask about allergies and if we have been there prior. Once we confirmed that we have been there many time and shared some of our favorite dishes, she shared with us some specials that were not on the menu. We placed a order for tableside sangria so we could think over all our options. We ordered Ensalada de Agucate, mini Iberico burgers, Sobrassada, paella plus some of our old stand bys like Enfivea, patatas bravas, croquettes. Mariana was spot on recommending the special dishes. We enjoyed all of them and hope to have the again sometime. We are already planning to ask for her the next time we make reservations. Highly recommend the restaurant and her! Thanks for a wonderful evening

    Jose Andres never disappoints. His food and concepts are spot on. Every dish was a flavor party in your mouth and the portions were generally larger than most tapas restaurants which was wonderful. We easily shared each dish among the four adults. It was also so nice to see a kid's menu that was not pizza, french fries and a hot dog. Our young diner had the carne asada and loved it. Desserts were excellent and everything was prepared beautifully.

    We live locally and have been to Jaleo several times and had a pleasant experience but last night there was a private event on the upper level with the loudest music I have ever experienced in my life! My ears are still ringing and it’s now the second day, as I write this. We rushed through our dinner so we could leave. I can no longer recommend this restaurant unless we are assured this could never happen again. My suggestion is that you close the restaurant to the public whenever having a private event of this nature or just DO NOT have this type of private event.

    Server was great for first time tapas-goers, but food was just okay. Protein-based chicken, steak, and chorizo dishes were a bit bland and uninspired. Garlic shrimp was good, but the stars were the apple fennel salad and ham and cheese pressed sandwich (the latter of which is also available at their quick service location. Bathrooms were quite messy at 8:30 at night which at an establishment like this always makes me question things about how the place is run. We sat outside and it was absolutely lovely, but if that wasn’t an option, the inside would’ve been cacophonous so be aware that loud is the atmosphere inside. Overall, this was fine and it was fun, but it won’t make our heavy rotation at Disney Springs.

    As usual, the food was delicious. And it's food you can't get many other places. If someone hasn't tried the liquid olives - they are missing out. They literally melt in your mouth. The chicken fritters were wonderful. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and very accommodating with our questions. One of us dined under Magical Dining and the other of us ordered from the menu. Either way, the food was great and so was the sangria.

    Service was very very very slow. We put our complete order in at the start and got half of our tapas delivered and eaten before we got our waters. Our order also wasn’t correct. The half sangria pitcher also was even later. What should have been a 1 hour dinner with two kids was ~2hours. The food was also just OK, I’d recommend to eat elsewhere.

    "We went to Jaleo for magical dining, the place is very loud and very hard to hear yourself or others talk. The foods came out like tapas does but since we were ordering as a couple on the magical dining it made the experience disjointed. We then had to wait 30 minutes from when we finished the third course our entree and dessert - not very good on the timing. I did not feel this reflected what I expected from a James Beard quality restaurant." The good news is the food was very good - I had the Ensalada Verde mixed greens with tomatoes, onions and olives with sherry dressing which was fresh and wonderful. Then the Gazpacho de Tomate Estilo Algeciras classic chilled spanish soup made with tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers which was like a shooter - very tgasty and then the Paella del Dia daily paella served with garlic aioli with shrimp and cuddle fish. Finished with the Flan al Estilo Tradicional de Mamá Marisa con Espuma de Crema Catalana a classic Spanish custard with ‘espuma’ of catalan cream and oranges.

    We had four in our party so we were able to select one of everything to share. At the end of our meal the what did you like best question was thrown out, no one could pick just one. We had to rephrase and say what did you like least, that too was a challenge. Everything was spectacularly delicious!

    Dining with friends on their first visit to the Springs, prompted a Jaleo Experience featuring a tour of the entire menu at the recommendation from our wonderful server, Carlos. It was not a disappointment in the least. It does require a more adventurous palette, but go for it! Deconstruction is not recommended, as the combination of flavors is where the balance magic happens. Want to make a full date of it? Jaleo pairs nicely with Cirque de Soleil too. Cheers to la vida!
