    I cant think of one standout dish here I had, and I had quite a few. This is an extremely overrated James Beard restaurant--better food at Zaytinya

    Amazing!! I had lunch yesterday and the DC Restaurant Week menu was fantastic. Tapas and the best fries with blue cheese I ever had. TJ Neville told me about this place and he is right: amazing!

    Everything was amazing!!!! I had the Idiazabal cheese which was excellent and melted in my mouth. The Jamon iberico fermin was definitely an experience. Tuna tartare was small but really tasty.

    Based on (and drawn in by) the great reviews, I was rather underwhelmed. Tapas were okay but really nothing special.

    Washingtonian recommends the mini hamburgers, sangria, tomato bread, and croquetas.

    This place is not for. Very expensive to very little food. Food was not good.

  • Perry L.

    The most interesting combination of tastes, ingredients and drinks I've ever had. The grapefruit w/ olive oil ice cream dessert is a true testament to this, and I highly recommend it.

    Remarkably slooooow service yet good service when you can pin them down. Fantastic food & THE BEST mojito I've ever had - full of mint & lime. Mmmmm...

  • Jen K.

    If you get nothing else, get the papas arrufgas and the orange flan. I have always hated flan, but theirs is impeccable.

    Jen Klingensmith · February 21, 2014
  • Michelle A.

    Delicious and inventive tapas. If you're dining with kids, request to sit at one of the Foosball tables. It keeps the kids entertained.

    Liquid olives sound weird but are wonderful

    If you want a unique and high quality experience with a great atmosphere, I would highly recommend Jaleo. This is one of the best tapas restaurants in the metro area. Can't wait to go back!!
