Not a great start when the man on the desk is surly and seems unable to work the reservation computer - or perhaps deciding which of the many empty tables to assign is too much for him. He then stood and watched disdainfully as I struggled to pull a heavy table out a few inches to get to the banquet.... More

We have been to Jaleo in Crystal City several times. The food is very good -- consistent from restaurant to restaurant. I recommend getting at least 2 tapas per person..then if still hungry..go for more. Our waiter knew the menu and made very good recommendations.

A group of four of us started with several tapas plates. All were good and well-prepared. The server mentioned they also have paella, so we ordered two: One vegetarian and one shrimp. Freshly prepared and served table-side, the two paella looked very good. However, both were simply rice with very little else. The vegetarian had few veggies and the shrimp... More

Had heard such great things about this restaurant so we met a couple for dinner a few weeks ago. It was a busy night and there was a great energy to the place but it was extremely loud and we found our selves shouting across the table to each other. We strained to hear the waitress speak with all the... More

Food is excellent! Lunch special is phenomenal value, $25 with four courses and a glass of sangria. Every plate was delicious! I've been to one of their other locations and they are consistently good!

Such a friendly waiter (Brian) and great variety of dishes to choose from. We tried the endives, tortilla, scallops, shrimp, and ended with a great ice cream that came with a nicely baked biscuit. It was a sunny day but still sitting inside with a window view of the street made our seating better. A truly enjoyable experience

Group of 8 for business dinner. I asked out server to just keep it coming and she took care of several tapas rounds. Delicious. Nice change from the ordinary.

We hadn't been here for a while, but returned due to the DC location's Michelin award. It was better than we remembered. The hot bread with garlic/rosemary olive oil was delicious. We split 5 tapas--figs with serrano ham, crab salad, rice with mushrooms and cheese, baked pasta paella and skirt steak--all very, very good. We finished with the chocolate dessert--outstanding....

I got back to Jaleo after a long absence . It was always delicious . This last time though it was memorable from the sangria to all the delicious tapas .., the only minor disappointment was the abbreviated dessert menu. Last time the dessertts were to die for. This time around they were delicious but not heavenly as before .... More

There's a reason that people rave about Jaleo - it's a great restaurant! I took a guest to Jaleo for brunch on Sunday and we had a wonderful time. The atmosphere is beautiful and welcoming and sitting down you step away from the outside, ready to enjoy the food. The menu is varied, especially for brunch and we ordered chicken... More
