We have been to Jose Andres' tapas bar a number of times and the many dishes we tried tonight did not disappoint. We started with cheese and Jamon samplers before moving on to treats such as; grilled hangar steak, grilled artichokes, calamari, yummy chicken fritters and more. Food comes out quick so you an order plate by plate and repeat what you like the most- we doubled up on hangar steak, chicken and calamari. The tapas are upscale with prices to match, our dinner averaging out to about $50 per person with only 2 alcohol drinks and no dessert. Unfortunately here, the service did not live up to what you expect from a celeb chef or when you are paying more than a couple of c-notes. Our wait person was perfunctory and appeared to have a slight attitude. They had trouble understanding that I wanted still and sparkling water for the table and brought our daughter a Sprite even though she clearly said Coke. Neither of our soft drinkers were ever asked if they wanted another nor was my wife's iced tea refilled. I was offered only one more Sangria, when I easily would have gone 1 or 2 more if asked. Finally one of our fav reorders was forgotten and something we didn't order brought to the table, we refused this but were charged anyway- when I asked the charge be removed, the servers disdain wasn't even hidden. By the time we were ready for dessert, we wanted to get it elsewhere- hard to pin it down but the service just wasn't "on" . Don't skip Jaleo because of this review, the food overides that disappointment.
