Tapas we’ve been loving for years include goat-cheese-stuffed red peppers, crusty bread rubbed with tomatoes & layered with thinly sliced Manchego, a textbook gazpacho, & warm dates wrapped in bacon.
Be sure to stop by on Wednesday nights when flamenco dancers transport you to Spain over plates of tiny tapas. Try the eggplant flan or eel with shallots for an exotic snack, and don't forget sangria.
Don't leave without getting some sangria. Yum!
Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema always fit in house-made chorizo on mashed potatoes, a perfect Spanish omelet, and garlicky shrimp.
Complement a glass of sangria with Ibérico ham, croquetas served in a shoe and, of course, a variety of paellas served in pans that feed six or more. [Eater 38 Member]
Try the Calamares fritos con alioli and spot it on Foodspotting!
Bacon-wrapped dates are amazing. Also try the white wine sangria for something a little different.
I've been coming to Jaleos for 17 years...even did a promotional commercial for them and have known Jose Andres for almost 15 years. The food is consistently fantastic and the staff is amazing!
The best tapas restaurant in D.C.
Make sure you eat the apples out of your sangria. Feeling a little loopy is amazing

Tapas are already kid-sized—woo hoo! Powered by ParentsConnect.com
Spanish-born star chef José Andrés jump-started his career in his new home city with tapas restaurant Jaleo. Sample a classic paella or a tortilla with sobrasada, onions, and Mahón cheese.
Head's up...the Penn Quarter location of José Andrés' Jaleo is due for a facelift in the coming months. So stop in and enjoy the lengthy tapas menu now.
Love the duck with rice
For lunch Jaleo has $11 soup-salad-or-sandwich combos

Bacon-wrapped dates. Amazing.
Try the Eggplant and Sangria
One of DC's magical places. Come here often, and come here regularly.
Amazing! All Tapas were delicious, dessert amazing and our service was great! Thanks JR
Try the chorizo and potato, it's good!
Try the rossejat, a kind of paella made with fideos (an angel hair noodle); pan con tomate, the famous tomato bread of Catalunya; cumin-scented chickpeas with spinach; croquetas!; calamares a la roman
Top notch tapas, just a few blocks north of the National Gallery
Go to Jaleo and order anything with mussels or apples.
Try the Chocolate Flan With Brioche Ice Cream And Olive Oil (via @Foodspotting)
Food was delicious and came quickly! Loved all the tapas.
The tiny salt potatoes with red and green sauces are tasty and plentiful.
My only tip is to GO! Everything is amazing including the drinks. A memorable dining experience for sure. Make reservations on Open Table!
This is a happy place! Get the mushroom rice and the pan com tomates e jamon
Jose Andres strikes again because I have yet to be disappointed here. Get the paella and anything else with Iberico ham.
Endive with goat cheese is delicious as well as everything else. Simple yet complex!
come sit at the bar!
Great Happy Hour!
You simply can't beat $4 sangria and tapas during happy hour!
We come down from NY just to dine here and we never leave anything on the plate. That says it all!
I am in love with their brunch menu! Get the poached egg and spinach on brioche.
Get the Jose Andres gin and tonic. Amazing.
Get the Huevo Frito Con Caviar, Patatas Bravas, and Gambas Al Ajillo. The Sangria is excellent.
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...
If you get nothing else, get the papas arrufgas and the orange flan. I have always hated flan, but theirs is impeccable.
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
Eat the food, drink a pitcher of sangria. Happiness.
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!!
Ask for table 4 near the window. Get papas arrugas with beso de vino a cheap but great red wine@
