The place was loud , and the Paela we ordered was over cooked ( some rice was burnt from the bottom) and in general, for the amounts and quality, it is an over priced restaurant !

Great experience. The waitress was friendly, funny, and attentive. The food was delicious (I recommend the mini hamburgers and the pork tenderloin, and also the bread with just tomatoes on it). It was lively and maybe a bit noisy but not to the point where you couldn't have a normal conversation with someone at your table. My only gripe would... More

Love Paleo, was thrilled when it opened a few years ago in Bethesda, It was great for several years then it seemed to go downhill - too much of the food seemed to be swimming in olive oil, soggy, fuzzy flavors. On a visit in April, the food was MUCH improved, so much so that it's back on my list... More

A very good tapas place. Service was very good and we tried many plates, all of which were excellent.

It's a great place to hang out with friends, but if you are hungry, go someplace else. Be sure to try the shark meat!

I ate here on a recent business trip to the area and happened to dine on a Monday night when there was a tapas special - 6 choices from a set menu (three choices in each of the six categories) for a very reasonable price. The food was delicious and I was amazed at the size of the portions. Indeed,... More

One of my favorites, fresh, tasty, small plates, filling, food comes out in stages and pipping hot. Good customer service, even the manager stops by to ask if everything is ok. We've eaten at serval other locations, they're all great. Plenty of parking within comfortable walking distance. Great birthday treat this past Sunday 😋

Great food -- even for those with food allergies. Upon request, they immediately offer an allergy menu that is fully notated with 'safe for' rather than 'free from' indications. They chef, manager, and wait staff all made sure my food was delicious and safe, despite the long list of foods I couldn't consume. It was a stress free dinner out!!... More

I have eaten at several of the Jaleo locations. They are all good. The one in Bethesda, MD is just fine and it is easy to find parking close by. The food is very good and the experience is fun.

Fun, tasty, excellent tapas restaurant. It was a warm sunny spring day and we sat at the outside tables - felt just like we were in Europe, watching the passers-by! The gin&tonic oysters were sweet and succulent; garlic and spicy shrimp required a refill of the bread basket to sop up all the sauce; sliced chorizo literally melted in the... More
