Good cooking is something that reflects the passion of the people who do it. It is not just a job for which you receive a pay. When a chef is dedicated to opening countless restaurants, the quality of what is prepared in each one of them is affected because he can not monitor one by one. This restaurant's menu is... More

My wife and I entertained my brother from Boston. We order seven dishes, including mushroom, garlic shrimp, fried calamari, lamb steak, asparagus, sausage with white beans, and imported bread dove. Guess what, we liked them all.

OK. I am a Ham snob...I only eat mine. We got the chef's tapas and I ABSOLUTELY fell in love with the JAMON Iberico. we had 3 different types and loved the fattiest one. The other appetizers were very inventive. Why 4 starts? Out of 11 tapas. I liked 5. So to get 4 stars after is pretty amazing. I... More

This was a very interesting cuisine. I had four different dishes consisting of four very different taste textures. The wait staff was very attentive. This was a very expense restaurant and I'm not sure I got my monies worth.

We went for happy hour and really enjoyed the food. Very good, nice portions for the price and all around good. However, we sat at the bar and at times we were neglected and other people showed up. Last order of tapas seemed to have been forgotten and we had to ask to get it. Would rate it higher, but... More

The food was really excellent, the atmosphere energetic, but the service was poor/slow. Prices high, but not unexpected for the restaurant, style and location.

This is possibly the worst restaurant experience we have had, and I know that JALEO in Washington DC is an all time favorite of ours. We have all of José Andrès' cookbooks, so what on earth happened here at the satellite eatery ? We hand reservations well in advance, a party of two on a Monday night, for early eats.... More

The Spanish tapas restaurant Jaleo has a menu consisting of variety of Spanish tapas, of which some are good, and others not as good. The atmosphere is nice, and the service is fine. Not bad, not excellent.
