The paella here is incredible. We always have a wonderful meal and experience here.
We casually mentioned to the waitress that we were celebrating our son’s birthday. After dinner she brought out some flan with a candle in it! Speaking of dinner, the paella is amazing! Love Jaleo!
We actually ended up having happy hour, Sunday night who knew? Great food, great value.
Very nice location and decor . The food is nice and the service outstanding. I love the tapas concept of the resto, ideal for dinner. A little pricey though , plan around 40$ per person of you want to main dishes and dessert
it was mediocre
Many dishes were tasty but too oily for my palate and dietary needs.
Also did not care for the extra loud "peppy" music, it made conversation nearly impossible.
Husband’s birthday celebration. Nice table for two by the window, Woodmont Avenue side. Weeknight and lots of big groups near us. Seemed to be work related. Had three different servers. Everything we ordered wS delicious except the paella-like tapa. Served comped it as well as the dessert we ordered since it was my husband’s birthday. Awfully expensive considering how small the tapas are with the exception of the spinach, raisins & pine nuts salad.
I dined with 3 other folks and we each ordered about 2 tapas. I got the apple fennel manchego salad, which i highly recommend, and the sauteed mushrooms. Everything was delicious and service was great, but we all found the music a bit loud. Still, it did not mar our dining experience.
