This has become an must visit for us when we travel to DC. Super great servers, food is out of this world. A super good menu - that is added to on a frequent basis - but the favorites are all there

When hosting friends or business, I like taking people to Jaleo. They have a wonderful lunch menu for $20 that offers 4 tapas and a dessert. You can't go wrong! The place is colorful and lively.

Wonderful food and wonderful staff. The small plates were tasty and served quickly. Our waiter clearly knew the menu and helped navigate the menu. In between meals they serve crusty bread with a delightful olive oil mix.

They are specialized on Spanish type food but I don't think they have Halal food. Sorry.
