Jaleo - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
Came to this restaurant with relatively ...
Came to this restaurant with relatively high expectations based on my past experiences at other Jose Andres restaurants. The menu looked great, the wine I ordered was good. I was most impressed by the charcuterie we ordered, which I don't really attribute to the restaurant/chefs. Most other dishes (goat cheese/mushroom stuffed piquillos, gambas al ajillo, etc) were good, but not something I would return for. I was pretty disappointed in the chicken/rabbit/green bean paella - seemed like it had been sitting around awhile, green beans (actually lima beans) were overcooked, and there was not a single piece of rabbit to be found in this whole dish. Maybe it was because it was a Monday night that the meal was not so great, but for >$200 for 2 people, I will not be choosing Jaleo again.

Overall food was very good. We were a little disappointed in portion sizes for a few dishes given the price but absolutely no complaints on taste. The reason for only giving 3 stars was value for price-- I get charging high for food given location and atmosphere but seriously, $6 for an 8 ounce can of Diet Coke with no free refills when a meal for 2 is upwards of $200 with minimal alcohol is a bit much. We probably will not return.

Our waitress was a cut above perfection! Her recommendations lead us to the most amazing dinner! Chef Jose Andres has done it again as we are huge fans of his restaurants in Washington, DC!
The hosting Casino Cosmopolitan is the perfect completion to this terrific experience!

Paella was not offered and we were only told after being seated. An email should have been sent since it did not appear the restaurant was full! Food was too much of a "twist" on traditional Spanish food for my taste!". The only delicious items were the croquetas! The shrimp alioli was a disappointment and so was the sangria! I doubt we'll return to this location!

Service and food were terrible and way over-priced. Had told waitress we had a concert at 8 pm and still took over 30 minutes just for one paella. $ 75 bill for one paella, one salad and one soup ! What a joke...never again.

this is my second time to jaleo vegas and its was just as good and exciting as my first time there. we were seating right after arriving and the food definitely has the wow factor the moment you take your first bite and if your not sure what to order the waiter will guide you in the right direction . The menu has something for everyone I highly recommend jaleo master chef Jose Andes has developed a extraordinary menu giving you a taste of spain in las vegas Nevada thank you Jose!

The food was truly amazing, especially for the price-- we had eaten at bizarre meat the night before and were super impressed there and love this place as well ---the service was great &our server was attentive and knowledgeable. We tried about six things from the menu and all were just delicious

No trip to Vegas is complete without a dinner at Jaleo. The perfect place for tapas - great atmosphere, prompt service, exciting, original offerings. Don't miss the garlic shrimp or the chicken croquettes. Cannot wait to head back again (and again, and again...)

Great food, great service, and a really nice environment. I know it's Vegas, but it's still hard to wrap my head around a nearly $200 dinner for two people with one drink, eating tapas. That being said, at least you know you'll eat well!
Great experience, a must try if you ever ...
Great experience, a must try if you ever think 'Spanish food'. Don't waste your time going other places. This is real food and dishes originally from all the Spanish country. Excellent Catalan selection, and many other great places. The rice was really well done. Close to perfection. Thanks for finally make me believe you can have real 'pa amb tomaquet' and 'paella' or 'chorizo' in USA.
Great Restaurant Week find!
This was a last-minute substitute for another restaurant (which had canceled our reservation due to a private party). Lucky find, and a bargain to boot! We both had the Restaurant Week offering of gazpacho (creamy delicious and perfectly seasoned), salad (beautiful presentation) and paella (more of an autumn dish with sausage and mushrooms, but delicious). The service was attentive without hovering, and the ambiance was upscale casual with a Mediterranean flair. I would definitely return.

We had been to Jaleo's before and I wanted to bring our entire family back to celebrate my birthday. Our table was on the far side of the restaurant and away from the exciting area where they cooked the paella. If I had to do over I would have asked to change tables. We ordered the retaurants famous gin and tonic drinks, which were outstanding. Probably the best part of the night. The food was just mediocre. I would not go back.
This place is awesome. The gin and tonic ...
This place is awesome. The gin and tonics are the best we've had (she had the herbed one and I had the Jose's) and the food was terrific. Our waiter recommended several dishes, which were great, and we decided to get others as well. The lamb was a standout - as was the scallop dish with mint pea purée. We had about 5 small plates and two desserts - it was the perfect amount to fill us up before our show. I would highly recommend Jaleo!
More and more
Jaleo continues to impress. This was our 4th visit, and we still find new things to try while enjoying the classics (e.g. chicken croquettas, paella, etc). Overall, the service was exceptional with each set of plates spaced out enough for our table of 6 to enjoy without being overwhelmed. The stand out dish was the frozen gin and tonic for dessert. This is truly amazing how it can be presented like a sundae yet taste like the best gin and tonic I've had.
NOT TRADITIONAL PAELLA
We had great service and it was a beautiful restaraunt but we were VERY disappointed with the Paella. We went to celebrate a 21st birthday.. (the restaurant was informed) not even a happy birthday by any server.. Our appetizers were good and the beer was really good. Even though it was small glass . Being in Barcelona and being Spanish myself it was disappointing to see the small portion of rice and three shrimps being served to me and told it was Paella. We were also told that even though they were Tapas they would feed 2 people. For our table of 5 we ordered 3 thinking we could get more if we still happened to be hungry. Of course we were.. 2 to 3 scoops of rice and three shrimp wouldn't usually feed 1 person. We didn't try anything else but the olive appetizer and the Paellas, so there could have been some great other plates on the menu... but we were so disappointed at that point we paid our check and left to the hotel where our show was taking place and went to a different restaurant and finished celebrating the birthday we were all there to celebrate.
Nothing short of spectacular!
This was our second visit to Jaleo. The service is better than excellent, but the food....oh the food. Very imaginative offerings. Flavors that leap out at you. What ever else you may order, DO NOT miss the egg and caviar dish called "Huevo frito con caviar", which sounds simple but is one of the best dishes I have ever eaten anywhere! The GM, Steve Oseas is top notch. Our server Francesca was really terrific. The Somm, John Peiser, was very knowledgeable and personable. Our evening was really enhanced due to these three folks. Will recommend this place to all our friends and we well most assuredly be back.

This was our first time at Jaleo's and we had a great experience. Great service, our server made tasty recommendations and walked us through their "small plates" style menu. We tried 6 things and LOVED 5 of them. (Hanger steak was too rare for us). We will visit them again next time we're in Vegas.
If you're a woman, be sure to bring along a man.
If you're a woman, be sure to bring your male friends to place food orders. Throughout our time at this restaurant, our server refused to address me (a woman) or even look in my direction. He only bothered to interact with me when I asked him a direct question--and then he seemed reluctant to do so. While the food and cocktails at Jaleo were universally excellent, I won't be returning to an establishment that treats me like a child, or worse, a nonentity.
The food we ordered was totally over priced for the amount of food you get.
The tapas are VERY small but tasty. I received 5 slides of Spanish ham for $ 18.00.
My wife had a mini Burger for $ 12.00.
Wine list is long but again the cheapest red wine we saw on the list was $ 12.00/glass. We know it is Las Vegas but this restaurant ( menue) is over priced. Sorry
