“Delicious Tapas but Very Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

The tapas themselves are incredibly tasty. However, other tapas restuarants I have been to give you a portion that you could share with at least one other person. The portions at this restuarant are barely enough for one. This place is worth eating at but be prepared to spend quite a bit of money.

The location is exceptional as there are several very nice bars literally across the street.

“A Landmark for a Reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Really well-prepared, authentic tapas in a sophisticated but not pretentious atmostphere. Jaleo stands for much in the Washington area; the chef is highly respected and the food is ALWAYS good!

“Fabulous Chef's Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Treat yourself, come with a friend and put yourselves in the most capable hands of the chef and staff. Pacing and wine were superb. Absolutely the best preparation of uni that I've ever had.

“excellent tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Very good Spanish tapas and good drinks. It's fairly noisy inside and more pleasant on the sidewalk.
