This was our second visit to Jaleo and we continue to love the freshness of the dishes and the knowledge of the staff to explain the food and wine. I highly rec the fixed menu with the wine pairings. Worth every penny!

Authentic Spanish food. Everything we tried was properly seasoned and tasty. Gazpacho, gambas al ajillo, chicken fritters, ham and manchego cheese sandwich, carne asada and paella. Our waitress was very attentive and food came out in a timely manner. A little on the pricey side, but you are at Disney Springs after all! We plan to go again to try out more of the extensive menu.

Everything about our experience at Jaleo at Disney Springs was phenomenal, but the service and the food in particular stood out. My partner and I both ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings, and we're so glad we did. Our energetic and endearing servers educated us about each delicious dish and each perfectly paired Spanish wine placed in front of us. Thanks to everyone at Jaleo for a wonderful evening!

The food is fantastic. However, the service is very slow and unorganized. For the prices they are charging, service should be top notch.
The prices compared to the quantity of food you get is outrageously expensive. Be prepared to spend A LOT of money for very little food. Even soda refills are unavailable. They serve it in tiny glass bottles and charge very handsomely for it. I don’t mind spending money when I dine out, but this place almost made me feel as though I was getting ripped off. Not likely to return.

I took my wife to Jaleo for her birthday. We were very excited to try it out, since she is from Spain and we love tapas style dinning. Overall the food came out cold, like it had been sitting under the heat lamp for too long. Our server appeared to be rushed and had many tables to serve. The overall experience did not have the feel of fine dinning, but paid fine dinning prices.

Jose R was our server on 7/5 holiday weekend. Extremely knowledgeable about the menu and was conscientious to give us a good overall experience. The oysters, gazpacho and peppers stuffed with mushroom were delicious. My G&T was good, but my son sent back a suggested drink- they quickly took it off the menu and the air salt margarita was perfect. I had the mussels and my son the chorizo, both cooked in a special Spanish charcoal smoker!! Please take time to watch the kitchen- wood burning paellas being made was fascinating to watch. Manager made our visit special. We’ve eaten at DC Jaleo, Oyamel, Bar mini and love Jose Andres’ humanitarian efforts.

Our server kept “ disappearing “ on us had to flag down others to get help.
Tapas were good but the paella was very dry, sent it back.
Gratuity was automatically included, assume that’s the reason for the poor service.

Had been looking forward to trying this restaurant but was quite disappointed , not worth it!

Food was good. Kind of a casual setting but since it is in Disney Springs it makes sense. Service was not bad, it was just so very loud I could not tell if the waitress was whispering or not. Also her timing was off. Folks would bring us a plate and she would instantly ask how was it before we could take a bite. After the third time I asked her to let us actually taste the food. I have eaten in three of JA's restaurants and this was my least favorite.

I must admit that, at first, the thought of sharing a bunch of small plates with other people at my table did not sound very inviting. I could not have been more wrong. Each of the four of us ordered two or three separate plates and we all shared. The food was outstanding. The service could not have been better. A couple of the highlights were the hand carved at the table, the olives, and the chicken croquettes. The service was just as amazing. It is stunning to me that this outstanding restaurant is that Disney Springs. Don't let the location fool you. It is well worth the trip!

My parents and I dined at Jaleo for lunch. Our waiter, Oswaldo, was very knowledgeable and helped us have a fantastic dining experience.
The portions of the tapas we had were perfect to share between three people. We shared the paella, pulpo, warm brussel sprout salad, and wrapped chorizo. Everything was delicious.
It would be difficult to chose a favorite dish. I will say that my dad and I would prefer if the pulpo was grilled rather than boiled, but it was still good.
The atmosphere is fun and colorful. It was quiet for lunch, and we were able to sit overlooking the water. It would be a great place to meet for drinks too.

Hidden gem in Disney Springs! Most probably aren’t familiar with Spanish tapas and the quality of the food at José s restaurants but it never disappoints and neither does this location. Staff is always knowledgeable and makes great recommendations if you need them. Great place if you’re looking for something beyond standard Disney dining experience!

We had an incredible first visit to Jaleo! Our server, Jose R., was magnificent and never led us astray. He had incredible recommendations (the wine he suggested was delicious) and the tasting menu was perfect for us. He is so passionate about the food and gave us great descriptions on everything. All of the servers that brought us our tasting menu items were amazing. We cannot wait to go back!
