“Very pricey”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

We came here with a seven people and our bill was close to 300.00. Tapas are small but the paella is worth it. Delicious. I recommend getting the paella and the bacon wrapped dates tapa. Paella takes 30 min to make so be patient. The tapas are small portioned. Service was top notched.

“Awesome food and experience”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We went here for a college graduation celebration dinner. The atmosphere is welcoming, the service was exceptional, and the food simply outstanding. We had several tapas... Torta Pascualete was especially outstanding and Queso Garrotxa was good. Manzanas con hinojo y queso Manchego salad was fantastic, Chistorra envuelta en patata frita (chorizio wrapped in crispy potato) was so good we ordered it twice, Tortilla de patatas al momento was phenomenal, sauteed spinach was good, and finally, the Flamenquines alone is worth a return trip.

We are very happy we went here and will certainly return.

“Good food, but seriously overpriced”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Eating at Jaleo is always a wonderful food experience, but lunch with my college age daughter set us back $75, with no alcohol! Seems vastly over priced, even for good food.

“Always a great choice”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Our family loves getting together here for any meal. There is a great selection of vegetarian options. Sangria roja is the best!!! The paellas are pretty good. This restaurant is family friendly or can be very nice for a date night. Service definitely varies depending on the server! But overall we have never had bad service.
