    Complement a glass of sangria with Ibérico ham, patatas bravas, croquetas served in a shoe and, of course, a variety of paellas served in pans that feed six people or more. Read more

    I am Spanish and all I can say is like I felt like in home. Genuine tapas, high quality food and a warm staff. 10 out of 10! :)

    If mixing and matching cheeses is an art, then the grilled cheese with Manchego, Murcia, Valdeón and goat cheese is a true masterpiece. Read more

    This is the only 100% authentic Spanish place I've been to in DC. Their conejo en salmorejo tastes like the one my grandma makes at Christmas! The patatas bravas and the pulpo were great as well

    Small dishes, I didn't like the bartender it's kind of rude.. Not recommended if you are really hungry

    I had the best Gin and Tonic ever at Jaleo! I would definitely go back for their croquetas and cocktails!😋

    You don't often get authentic Spanish Tapas, but this place gets it just right. Get the pollo, chorizo, cauliflower. Avoid gambas al ajillo, sour and not enough garlic. Follow me on IG @simplysavor

    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.

    Overpriced, terrible service and bland food. Extremely disappointed especially after the rave reviews.

    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.
