We ordered the special paella. We have travelled in Spain and we lived in Miami eating paella is not a new experience. One can eat excellent paella in Little Havana and of course and of course anywhere in Spain. The dish tasted like rice heated in a microwave,the chicken was burned, mushy carrots,and over cooked shrimp. Our waitress was very gracious. Took our complaint to the chef or cook. We could see him shaking his head and yelling at her? Really! We did not order tapas, but paid the bill and left. This is no 5 star restaurant. Would never give anyone the suggestion to eat there.

We were excited to bring our children and introduce them to Spanish food and were not disappointed! We arrived and our boys were tired and cranky but as food arrived plate by plate they started to smile. We are very grateful for the service we received from the staff who were very gracious and accommodating. Can’t wait to come back!

By far the worse experience ever!! There system is terrible as they serve people as the food is ready so each person has there meal by themselves as it comes out. We had to get our own drinks from the bar all night meaning we had to physically get up go to the bar and get a drink. Waitress barely came to ask if we needed anything.
Steak came out horrible especially at the price of $130 a steak which the waitress never even goes over with you so you have a heads up on the price! Other people were complaining all night about how terrible the service is as well.

Jaleo is absolutely amazing. If you go definitely ask for Terrell-he is hands down the best server in the business. The food is so great and tapas menu allows you to try so many different choices. Our favorites are the croquetas de pollo and cono de queso de cabra mermelada de tomate.

We were a party of 9 so our table was basically in the walk way in the corner of the restaurant and we couldn’t enjoy or even see the ambience/decor of the restaurant. Our server was not very helpful choosing and acted annoyed we were not getting the $85 per person sampler! Had we been in the main dining area we might if entertained the idea but being out in a cover at a table way too small for our party size does not make it an enjoyable experience.
IF you can sit in the main dining area, the restaurant had a great vibe and the food was good but unfortunately our server (who’s been there since it opened) was a turn off to ever return.

I’ve been there 3 times in the last 2 months and this last time I was dissatisfied, the food I’ve ordered before tasted not so good this time, a half glass of moscatel was $16! Btw you don’t get to see wine list right now they don’t hand out menus because of covid. Overall if I go back I won’t be ordering the same things anymore. On a positive note their bread is fedexed daily from Spain, fresh and delicious! So mixed review from me this time.

Jośe was just awesome; attentive and endearing. We were thrilled to see a tasting menu available and he assured us it would not disappoint. We loved every bite, hard to choose a favorite course. The shrimp was so fresh, beef cooked to perfection, starting dishes were full of surprises. And yummo dessert of flan and chocolate mousse. We’ll return for sure and send others as well.

We been to Jaleo a number of times, always extremely pleased with the food and the service, as always we enjoyed immensely the crystal bread with olive oil and tomatoes, the chicken croquettes and the flan. we found the onion and cheese plate not only cold but unsavory and the tortilla with too much olive oil, so much that it took the flavor of the tortilla. needles to say I was disappointed , and hoping this is taking in a positive way . we understand, with the pandemic things can not be perfect. but there. are things that should not be affected. Our previous visit was in October and the menu was limited but all of it was good including la tortilla. I look forward to my next visit and to provide a great review they deserve

Jaleo's is an amazing experience - ambiance, drinks, food, presentation and service are all consistently wonderful. Our waiter, Terrell, absolutely made the meal. Personable, great recommendations and fun conversation. It's so delightful to have this type of interaction and connection nowadays. We almost forgot there was a pandemic - this was the service of days gone by!

The paella is their specialty and definitely worth getting. SO yummy! Really, everything our party ordered was wonderful, but get the paella FOR SURE!

We did the Jaleo experience, it was a lot a lot a lot of food and completely worth the price. There was only 2-3 items we wouldn't reorder but honestly we would've probably spent much more than that for a lot less. Can't wait to go back!

Food was unique, interesting, and delicious. Andrew was an excellent server. Recommendations and menu knowledge were on point. We also ordered too much food for the size of our table and he was deftly able to time everything out so we could enjoy it all with space to spare. Looking forward to the next visit.
