The quality of the food was great, tasted just like what I had while living in Spain. I found it a bit overpriced for the size of the portions but if you love real Spanish cuisine it's worth it as a special occasion splurge.
Pretty good but the service was slow and ...
Pretty good but the service was slow and the portions were pretty small. The food was good, but definitely not for anyone on a budget because the portions are pretty small, meaning each person would need to order a couple items.

We've had a lot of hits and misses in Vegas. This was definitely a hit. The food was great and creative. There were definitely more menu items that we wanted than we had an opportunity to try, so we'll head back next time (which will be soon). Their various presentations of Iberico pork alone is enough for us to have to return. We had 6-7 items, and they were all fantastic.
I was especially happy that they didn't fall into the usual Vegas trap of obscenely overpriced wine selections - where the prices are 3-7X wholesale - or a sommelier who instinctively up sells. We had a great bottle of wine, recommended by the sommelier based on our tastes. It was even on the low end of the range we provided (that rarely ever happens, and when it does, I'm always pleasantly surprised and tend to go back).
Honestly, it's our new favorite Vegas spot.

We make a point every time we visit Vegas to make a trip to Jaleo. Table service is great but we love the bar, sitting close to the open wood fire. Paella is a must, the chicken croquettes and the black foot pig sliders. If you are looking for a great gin and tonic this is the place.
Really disappointing for our one planned ...
Really disappointing for our one planned dinner in Vegas. Scene was fine, but so much pretense on the menu. Fortunately the group had good attitudes and humor about it all - and Jaleo dished up plenty of reasons to laugh. The hangar steak was still mooing. The chicken fritters were served inside of a man's shoe. There weren't enough bites of the $30 cheese plate to share. Rabbit bones in the paella. The prices for what you get are outrageous. We all agreed afterward we were starving - after paying $80 per person. Don't go hungry or actually, with much desire to eat at all.

Really enjoyed the creative menu. Several staff, servers attended us. We were there for a lite bite. My only disappointment was the servers was up selling to a point he was annoyed we didn't order more.
Other than that, great night.

Incredibly fun experience. Perfect food with terrific service. There are so many options on the menu. To minimize indecisions, go with the Chef's Menu. It's a great bargain and exceptional! If you see something in the menu that you must have, you can order it along with the Chef's Menu. You may find out that it is included in the Chef's Menu already. We didn't do the wine pairings, but a bottle of reasonably priced Cava goes with everything. Relax. Enjoy.

Everything we had was absolutely excellent! A little difficult to navigate the menu, but the server was very helpful. We started with charcuterie and the bread- both excellent. The bread has chopped tomatoes on it, which sounds weird but totally worked and was bursting with flavor, along with the the meats. We then enjoyed the garlic shrimp, lamb chops, lobster paella, the grilled sausage and the wood fired vegetables. Keep in mind that these are "small plates." There were 4 of us, we shared everything, and we were all satisfied. Every single dish was delectable! We would definately return!

Wonderful second experience at Jaleo! Most authentic tapas in the US. Transports me right back to Spain through my taste buds. Makes me so happy!
Standout dishes: pan con tomate, gazpacho, jamon y quesos
Skip to save room: patatas bravas (not crispy, too much mayo), gambas (overhyped and overcooked)
Can't wait to go back!

I was a little disappointed. It was my birthday and I choose this restaurant as I had been wanting to go for a while.
I thought it was a very noisy restaurant. Service average.
Food was ok, nice but not great. The shrimp dish served in the little pan was overcooked.
The bacon wrapped dates were dry.
We had a dish (chicken bites/croquettes) spilled on one of our guests white pants from our food server. The food dropped on the floor and there was no real apology from the wait staff exept he went to get a glass of club soda to clean up the my guests pants.
The chicken croquette wasn't picked up until minutes later when I pointed it out to one of the wait staff that there was food on the floor.
Overall food was good, but not outstanding.
Our beverage server was great.
I am not in a rush to return.

Primarily tapas. It was good for a late dinner after seeing a show. There were 2 of us and we had 3 regular tapas and 1 paella to share as well as 1 dessert. Rice in paella was very different from what we usually have, but maybe that was because it was Andalusian. Service was very quick and wait staff was very helpful.

The food was good, not great. To be honest, we were a bit underwhelmed. Very cool dining room, a big scene, a very nice waiter. I sat in the bench on the open wall looking out onto the hotel. I could've used a cushion, it was too far for the table for me to lean back comfortably. We won't return, too many other great options.
Great wine list, unfortunately the first ...
Great wine list, unfortunately the first three choices were unavailable. Food was good, however with the Jose Andres name attached, I was expecting a bit more. Pretty much basic tapas that I could have prepared at home.

Each time I visit this restaurant I go away with the feeling that this is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. Each bite makes me smile and I cannot stress enough for people to visit this restaurant when visiting Las Vegas.

We always visit Jaleo for vegetarian paella on our 2x year trip to Las Vegas. The appetizers are the best ever and very creative. Service is always good. Only issue is loudness but that's true for every popular restaurant in Las Vegas.

The small plates (tapas) are all very very tasty. Beautiful plate presentations, great service, not noisy (caveat - we were there at lunchtime with very few tables occupied), and just love that it's Jose Andres' restaurant. Easy to get to in the Cosmopolitan, too.

We went here to experience the foods we had while traveling thru Spain and reminisce.....but the items we ordered were nothing like Spain! Chewey, tasteless, way too much fat, old tasting....and that was just the Jamon! The ONLY item that was perfect was the Gaspacho....a little over the top on presentation, but very fresh and tasty. Eggplant and roasted peppers tasted right out of a jar....very bland. The dates wrapped in bacon were fried and not as tasty as they would have been roasted. The Manchego cheese was good but that was about it. The tapas were all presented pretty plan and just on a plate, nothing special for the prices being charged.
