Jaleo's food has been consistently excellent since they opened 15 yrs+ Small, delicious plates that are great as a solo meal or to share with friends. The table service is excellent, but the bar staff has always been a bit snooty for my taste. Sangria & great Albarino by the glass. I have never been disappointed.

We always enjoy the variety of tasty tapas that are offered. The restaurant is attractive and the food generally is served quickly. This is a place we are happy to return.

Visited with a friend who was visiting from India. Started with a picher of Sangria. Very Good! We ordered several small plates -- 6-7 types. Enjoyed all of those. We had paella twice -- that good.

The food is always outstanding. something for every taste. Tapas can be a full meal or something for a taste while having a drink. Space is open and airy. Always look forward to a meal here.

Jaleo was worth a revisit, and it was long overdue. Despite some timing issues from the kitchen which made for an awkward moment for the diners who had to wait for their main course while another one and I dined on ours, what saved the occasion were the well-executed dishes that were full of flavor and made with quality products,...

This place is a cross between a traditional restaurant and a tapas place. It is nice for a quick lunch, but somewhat less authentic than others. Therefore, I do not recommend it for dinner with friends, but find it perfectly in order for lunch or a "bite to eat".

Great atmosphere, great wait staff, and great food. We always choose from several of the small plates and have a veritable feast. Nothing disappoints. Great for groups, great for dates, girls night.

We had dinner with 2 colleagues. Food was nice and waiters correct. We ordered a bunch of different tapas and Paella. The Pulpo a Gallega was nice and well prepared including the crockets. The Paella was a not good. Nowhere near to what I used to eat during my 15 years holidays in North of Spain.

Didn't have a reservation so went to the bar which has highly uncomfortable squared of small seats. I hope they replace these soon. Had a fabulous rabbit dish, and started off our meal with the bacon wrapped dates! Very delicious but we were surprised by the breading on them as it is really unnecessary. The best two dishes were the... More
