Yes! Definitely recommeded. We've never been disappointed with the food, drinks or service.
Beautiful restaurant. Everything I ate was well prepared and high quality. Some of the flavors we a bit odd like sweet spinach, but I came here to explore and overall was super happy. Service was excellent. Ambiance is good but a bit loud and the tables are close together, both of which I expect in DC. A great destination place to experience.
Service was very quick and very amenable.
Fui con mi familia a almorzar, pedimos el menú del mediodia y toda la comida estuvo deliciosa. Los camareros muy atentos y amables! Volvería sin dudarlo!
As always, the food was excellent and the service exemplary.
The food was so good and came really quickly. No complaints!
We had a wonderful time at Jaleo. Food, service and ambience was great!
Some of the best food I've ever had!
I grew up with authentic Spanish food and Jaleo absolutely hits the mark. As soon as I entered I was hit in the face with the aroma of saffron; this is what you want in a Spanish restaurant.
The food was excellent and the staff was extremely professional and attentive. The scene was very energetic as it was a Saturday and the restaurant was full. Upon leaving the manager asked my opinion on several things and he actually wrote down some suggestions I made. I will absolutely be returning to Jaleo.
Tour de España was very tasty. 4/5 plates we’re a big hit. Only miss was the mushrooms and garlic, a bit bland for my taste. Kids options would be nice. Service and ambiance were outstanding. Overall great experience, will recommend and try to return.
Me gusto la comida, el ambiente, las porciones fueron más grandes de lo que nos comentó el mesero por lo que pedimos más de la cuenta, pero realmente sabroso
Great food: calamares, dátiles and patatas bravas. Top!
Nice welcome back from an old friend. Have been to Jaleo many times but went for the first time in a long time and food still just as tasty. We did the tasting menu and enjoyed the variety and the pleasure of not making choices but getting many delicious bites. Got a table in the wayyyyyy back and kinda got forgotten about but still fun and reliable good food:
We were a family of 4 - and not all foodies - and yet there was something for everyone - we each picked a dish and shared and then picked a couple more, relying on our server. The goat cheese/squash was by far the favorite!!
$20 lunch menu outstanding. Top ingredients, preparation, service. Bravo.
Service was attentive without being overbearing. Very knowledgeable and all recommendations were spot on. Food was fantastic (best octopus I've had outside of Portugal). Great wine list and excellent cocktails. Walked out full and satisfied for far less than we expected to pay. Would return 100%.
Nick was the best
Always a great meal!
The new lunch special is a phenomenal value. We have eaten at Jaleo for years and this is the beat deal ever! Select 3 courses from the set menu, then choose a dessert, all for $20! If you’ve been wanting to try Jaleo, now is the time to go!
The food was very authentic and delicious. Our server was fun and attentive.
Loved this restaurant! Service great and food delicious. Felt like we were in Spain!
Plan on spending some time here to fully enjoy the experience. This food should be enjoyed at leisure.
Always an excellent meal with each tapas prepared meticulously.
We’ve been to Jaleo many times and always enjoyed it. This time we got the Jaleo Experience tasting menu to try things that we don’t normally get. It was a LOT of food but so good. Service and food were top notch as always.
Jaleo is a favorite for many years now. Reliably tasty tapas and good service!
So delicious. Service was fantastic. Food was exquisite. Shockingly generous portions for tapas! The cheese selection was well varied. The tortilla española was among best I’ve had. The pork rolled around ham and cheese was a thing of beauty. The black footed Iberian pig end loin with apple reduction was sublime. And finally mashed potatoes with chorizo not too be missed.
Jaleos never disappoints! Always great good. We’ll be back.
We always enjoy Jaleo DC and Jaleo Crystal City. It's always a special treat!
The staff was great! The food was okay but cocktails were very good!
A wonderful place to eat. The food is uniformly excellent-unexpected, creative, and so delicious!
We tried several of the tapas dishes and all of them were delicious.
Amazing place ! The staff was extremely courteous
Attentive service, great food, fun ambiance. A favorite!
We loved the tapas we tried and desert was also great (the flan, in particular). The paella, however, was a disappointment- we had the squid and shrimp paella- unfortunately, the rice was too salty and the sea food too bland.
The food was delicious. This is was our second time and everything is carefully prepared and quite good. The only issue we had was the sausage that came with one of the dishes seemed undercooked. But when notified, the waiter immediately changed it out for us and brought us a whole new dish. We wish Jaleo had more protein-based dishes / options, but overall a very good experience.
The Jose tempranillo is really, really good. We bought a bottle upon leaving when we learned we can only buy it there! (Great deal -- it's $20 to take home but $50 at the table.)
It is a bit loud and busy inside and that was our main issue. The first time we went we sat outside and the ambience was much better and more relaxed.
The bathroom floor design is SO strange and disconcerting and creepy. It is an image of people reaching their hands up to you, as if you grab you while you relieve yourself. It's very strange and I'd recommend Jaleo change it.
The 1-hour lunch menu was perfect for us, though small plates were larger than expected and we were unable to finish everything. Gazpacho was delicious with crisp crunchy vegetables. White sangria fresh, light and wonderful. A real pleasure before our trip to museums on the mall. Highly recommended.
Delicious Spanish food with lots of variety!!! Best restaurant from my D.C trip. I highly recommend. Worth every dollar spent and not the type of food you can get anywhere.
I respect the labor, effort, and talent put into the food you serve and I also understand the value of the influence Chef Jose Andres adds to his restaurants. This is why I enjoy the experience even more.
Excellent food as expected. good ambiance outside and excellent service.
Wonderful service, cocktails, and food. The oysters were SO fresh, we could eat them all day. Highly recommend the olive oil ice cream w grapefruit for a hot summer day or any day.
