We chose this spot for a 50th birthday lunch and it was even better than expected. The food was a beautiful as it was delicious and the service was impeccable. The staff took a real interest in us and made the day very special. The Gin cocktail was billed as the best one you will ever have and that turned out to be an understatement. We all chose to "dine like a Spaniard" and were treated to brilliant small plates that we all shared. The flan dessert was unlike anything I had ever tasted in CA or Miami and I have to say, Jaleo does it best! Well done Vegas!

The experience was great. We started with the sangria and as someone said it is "sneaky"! It will catch up with you! We ordered four separate dishes and that was plenty. My girlfriend's favorite was the garlic shrimp. Mine was the short rib paella. Though the flank steak was a close runner up.
Our waiter was helpful. The menu took us a while since we don't speak Spanish and had to read the description on every item and there is a lot to choose from.
Would come back again.

FANTASTIC. Unique. Fun. Unusual food. One of a kind food and tastes. Nice restaurant. Great service. Everything explained well - and you will need some explanations on the menu!! A bit pricey, but don't miss it if you're in Vegas. One of the best restaurants we've eaten in that city. Give up some gambling and take your money here. At least you'll leave with a great memory and great food.

Very attentive and responsive staff - were willing to let us experiment and were extremely accommodating. There was a little bit of staff confusion around the cocktails menu -- apparently we ordered something off the menu that the bar was not stocked to deliver,and someone tried to improvise with other ingredients without telling us. Needless to say the results were not good and there was a lot of discussion back and forth with multiple people, different excuses from everyone, and it was really too much drama just to order something off the damn menu. Other than that the food was good.

Was really looking forward to this restaurant, but it did not live up to my expectations. We were seated in the area that was next to empty away from the area that looked somewhat happening ; we weren't given a choice. The flavors of the food were great but way overpriced for what it was. Tapas are supposed to be casual and down to earth, I found it too pretentious and the prices were outrageous. They only had one paella at the time, with rabbit, and none with seafood. The sangria just tasted like cold dilute wine, very disappointing. We paid over 150 American dollars for 3 people and left starving. The server was very attentive and nice, the hostess however did not seem approachable and rather stuck up. Vancouver has an amazing culinary scene, and we are spoiled with amazing restaurants and different cultural experiences, as-well as an array of diverse ingredients and perhaps for this reason I was not wowed.

key words. Fast service - Smiling waiters and waitress - fresh food - excellent food presentation - regular portions - nice atmosphere - clean - nice teamwork
We tried the tasting menú; it was amazing, there was a lot of different flavors and also the chef offer us a surprise dish out of the regular menú.
Bad points: The chairs are not very comfortable

I was in Vegas with a couple of friends who had never eaten at Jaleo before so made a pre-show reservation. We had the tasting menu and it was fabulous. The variety was great and the presentation was wonderful. The butternut squash soup and the chicken enchilada type things were especially good.

My wife and I were in Vegas for the first time and this was the first place that we had dinner. What an amazing start to our time in a town with some of the best restaurants in the county. We had the tasting menu with the wine pairings and we enjoyed every bite we ate. And to top it all off, our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wines that he served. From someone who has eaten is some wonderful restaurants, this was an amazing experience. We will definitely put this is a place to come back to when we come to Vegas.

Super disappointed. My husband and I recently visited Jaleo in Vegas with some friends. We were looking for a lively and hip dining experience and loved our meal at Jaleo in D.C. so I suggested this spot. Boy was I embarrassed. We ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairings as it was highly recommended by our waiter and sounded like a good way to try many things. The consensus from the 4 diners....only the starting cheese and tomato bread was edible. Even the paella was dry and tasteless. The wines were ok, and when we found one that we liked, we asked to buy another glass of it, but the waiter said they were out of it! We are fine paying for a great meal but this was over $200 each and we went straight to get a slice of pizza at the Aria after....which was delicious after this meal. My friends are still giving me a hard time! Go to Scarpetta if you are looking for a good meal at the Cosmo.

The tasting menu was everything I hoped for - a mix of classic Spanish and adventurous items, with amazing ingredients. The wine flight was fantastic as well. The service from the hostess to the maitre d to the food runners was impeccable. We loved it all. Thank you!

Having lived in Spain for three years, we were really looking forward to this restaurant. Overall, we thought the food was quite good, but very overpriced for the size of the portions. The paella was disappointing; the flavor was delicious but there were only three small bites of meat in the whole plate of rice. $36 is a ridiculous price for this dish. Really liked the sangria, but again, terribly overpriced.

Second visit this year. I'm getting spoiled because everything is great: food, service, atmosphere. Less expensive than any of the big name steakhouses in Las Vegas but more delicious and varied flavors. And the food doesn't weigh you down like steak and potatoes.

Chef's tasting (75) was great, listen to the staff and eat moderately lots of food in early courses. Did not enjoy the wines with the pairings though, Would probably suggest just ordering a bottle you know and like.

Expected more from a Jose Andres establishment - fell way short of what I had previously experienced. Crazy expensive for unremarkable food; very poor price to value ratio. I'm happy to pay for good food; I'd steer clear of this place.

I loved the sound of the series of small plates of Spanish delights. However, though the restaurant was no more than 25% occupied at 7:15 on a Tuesday, we were seated at a tiny table for two right behind a raucous table of about 12. It was SO unbelievably loud (all hard surfaces, nothing to absorb sound anywhere, we noticed) that we had to literally shout back and forth with our waiter about the drink menu. We quickly concluded it was not going to be a pleasant meal for us and we left. After three days in Vegas, we were on sensory overload and this place was ridiculously noisy.

Delicious every time. Worth seeking out on the Vegas Strip. Tapas are great as there is something for everyone. Food quality high. Always find a good glass of wine. And when you are finished your meal you are well situated on the strip to take in the rest of your evening.

I've been to many tapas restaurants around the US and Jaleo did not measure up. The dishes were not very imaginative or flavorful. They only had 2 paella dishes available and we had an early reservation. The paella dish that we ordered would not be enough for 3 people let alone the 8 people the menu claims to serve.
On the plus side, the setting and ambiance are top notch as were the gin and tonics.
