Hello TA,
So must of my reviews have been for hotels but Ill begin to review my notable dining experiences. Ill begin with Jaleo Crystal City because it was my most recent pleasure.

Im no stranger to Chef Jose Andres but my first time at this particular restaurant. I ran to Nordstroms up the street when I gained a taste for tapas and remembered this one was here. No reservations but I walked in and to my suprise the host graciously quickly found us a table outside because it was a great day.

My friend and I had a great time. Fantastic food and sangria on the patio was just what we needed. The thing that stood out most was the SERVICE! (I kept my reciept just so I would remember his name) Immel was the quintessential gentleman. He was very knowedgable about the food and wine and was very attentive despite a busy Sunday crowd. Our water was never low and the table was always attended too. He's a keeper! I dine at alot of restaurants due to my line of work and he stands out. Thank you Jaleo and Immel for a great spotaneous night.

I went here with some friends when we were in town for a work conference. The place was packed and they had a great Sunday evening special. Unfortunately the great special was only if the entire table ordered it, so if 2 wanted it and 1 didn't you couldn't have the special. I have a odd food allergy and there was pretty much nothing on the menu that I could eat. They did find one thing that I could eat. It was all right but nothing to rave about. The dessert I had was delicious! I almost went back the next day for another order of the dessert, the Hazelnut Chocolate cake. Our service wasn't that great either.. We ended up having the manager bring us things because our waitress never came back.

I would not go back there other than for another dessert. My friends enjoyed their meal...

The Jaleo in Crystal City is one of the best happy hours in the area. Great deals and perfect with the small plates. I've been here in the evenings plenty of times, and I've never had any issues with the service.

Of all the places on Crystal Drive, I think this is the best spot for drinks after work - best tasting drinks (especially the sangria!) and small plates to tide you over until dinner.
