Ate here before the Taylor Swift Concert. Menu can be overwhelming especially with no direction from server. However, food very good and cocktails were especially tasty. Try the rabbit !

A local friend recommend for me to go to this restaurant after I finished touring Newseum and Crime and Punishment Museums. What a lovely spot! I was by myself and ate outside on the sidewalk to enjoy the people watching. The service was good and the food was GREAT! Try the garlic shrimp and you can’t pass up the sangria. I can’t wait to go back to this restaurant with my husband because there were SO MANY things on the menu I wanted to try. This is place is a must go!

Loved the selection of tapas to choose from. Everything from seafood, chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, etc. Loved sharing different dishes with family.

When guests come to town Jaleo is a special treat. I've yet to find a tapas on the menu that I don't love. It's hard to pick between old favority and trying something new.
