Great food. Small plates, so not great for a table of hungry men, but it is the best place to eat in Bethesda.

The food is not that good. The Sangria is amazing...very tasty! The service is definitely lacking. Our waiter was no where to be found for the majority of our time there.

This restaurant is very pretty and the food is very good however the portions are quite small and compared to the restaurant it used to be, it has become highly overpriced, in our collective opinion. Drinks are also very expensive. It's in a great location...More

This restaurant has great ambiance. Sangria was very good. Food was good. Service needs work. GM did come to our table and that was great, but server was not great. If the service was better it would be a great place.

It was a Wednesday night after a long meeting for work, so reservations were a must. We were seated immediately by a welcoming hostess. Our waiter was friendly and had great recommendations. We ordered quite a bit among the four of us and even had...More

Jaleo has been a staple in my restaurant choices for many years. It's still delicious, although the sangria has gotten a little sweeter, and the paella a little less crispy on the bottom. The octopus is always perfectly cooked though! This last trip, we tried...More

I came here because I miss spanish food and what I found it's what you can have at the worst bar in Madrid. The 'croquetas' were industrial-frozen croquetas you can buy in the super,market. I feel very disappointed. I think all the people that think...More
