    I always enjoy dining at Jaléo's.Overall my experience in DC is better than here though. Also, did you know the prices at Bethesda are a few bucks more expensive? Not a show stopper to deter the trip.

    Classic degustation menu is fantastic! Good service and attention to clients' need! Had a special session with gluten and dairy free tapas! Super recommended place!

    My fave are the endives with goat cheese...mmmm. I come here regularly. Love the service, drinks and most of all the food. This place is spectacular!

    Very nice ambience and neighborhood. The paella took some time to be served but the veggie paella was worth the wait.

    Whatever else your heart desires, do not miss the pan de cristal! Sounds simple but the quality of the bread makes it an experience!

    The Bethesda location of José Andrés' popular small plates eatery is a taste of Spain in Bethesda. Plates to order include Andrés' famous red and white gazpachos and the date-and-bacon fritters.

    If you eat at Jaleo, you absolutely must order at least one Iberico dish. It is pork, but tastes amazing and hardly like pork. Divine swine!

    Order 2 per person to start. Best tapas: Beet salad, fennel apple salad, cauliflower, olives & dates, and the potatoes with tomato sauce.

    Why get a regular margarita with a salt rim when you can get a José Andrés Margarita with salt 'air' on top?

    Try the Tortilla de Patatas Al Momento - Delicious Spanish omelette with potatoes and onion. Marvelous tapas style!

    Try the chef's tasting menu. What a feast! But make sure you're hungry. Every dish a winner.

    The Majellones Al Vapor (mussels) are fantastic. The Gin and Tonic dessert was also a winner.

    Stay at the bar where you can get the entire menu and the staff is friendly. The flautas sandwiches are the best.

    One word: Iberico. Get it! In any dish. Jose knows his "jamon" and no one in the EEUA knows Spanish ham like Jose!

    The bar counter and bathroom could have been cleaner. Entree sizes seemed more tapas sized...Like Barcelona WB better.

    If you are visiting ANY of the Jaleo restaurants in the area, this is the one to go to. Don't miss the Gazpacho to start and Flan for dessert.

    The tapa portion of the paella is about the size of a medium pizza- stretches the normal definition of "Pettit plate"- still very good.

    We were absolutely disappointed with the food and how the manager handled our feedback. I expected more since this is chef Jose Andres', but then it was..bad. the paella was too salty and dry.

    Enjoyable meal, but very annoying to have lights turned on at 10 pm. If you want to linger over dinner, you still need to go to DC. They roll up the sidewalks in Bethesda after 10 pm.

    the pulpo was ok but the calamares, paella and croquetas were all too salty. We were given cold, hard bread. Such a bad experience!
