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

    Everything we tried was delicious! You won't be disappointed! The sangria is so so though.

    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

    Long wait. Too expensive.

    On Wednesday nights, flamenco dancers add to the fun in this sprawling, window-wrapped corner restaurant. Read more

    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.

    Mona Lisa · January 18, 2015
  • Lauren S.

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

    ben van alboom · August 4, 2014
  • Robb F.

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

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

    The bruschetta with tomato and the croquetas de pollo are a must try here!

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

    Christian Maiden · June 8, 2014
  • 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.

    Perry Lewis · May 25, 2014
  • Cleber F.

    Order "secreto ibérico" and sangria.

    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...

    Mary · March 22, 2014
  • 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.

    Michelle A. · February 16, 2014

    Liquid olives sound weird but are wonderful

    Jeanne Meister · February 9, 2014

    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!!

    Mike C · January 25, 2014

    Ask for table 4 near the window. Get papas arrugas with beso de vino a cheap but great red wine@
