Jaleo - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
We ordered one oz. of Jamon Iberico de bellota Fermin for 2 of us. The taste was good for the price only $35.00 and it also came with the pan de cristal con tomate. But It came out cold and not crisp at all. The waitress told us that is supposed to be cold because the tomate. She finally exchanged a warm and crisp one for us. The only complain we have which was the lazy food runner serving all the dishes from the back of my table instead walked around the walkway to my table. It is bad for a such restaurant.
Love this place and have come a few times. This thine we came for my Birthday to try the paella. The hood broke the day before and as a result we could not order paella. It would have been nice to have been notified in advance since our reservations were so late we could not find anywhere else to eat dinner. Disappointing!
Wife and I enjoyed a great tasting menu with wine pairing. The courses were well thought out and ended up being plenty of food. Bites were delicious - both the traditional ones and the more adventurous ones. Strongly recommend doing the tasting if you struggle with deciding once you see all the menu options.
What an absolute treat! We did the basic tasting menu--11 courses--and were not disappointed at all. The food was interesting and delicious; I could eat the green tomato gazpacho by the bucket full (OMG good!). The service was likewise impeccable. I have started looking where else I might be able to experience this chef's creations.
Food was good, menu was a bit overwhelming. We ordered sangria, but it was unlike any other I have ever experienced and I wasn't a fan. We were not feeling well after dinner and I really think that is why. We had to change our reservation time (with no issues) but I am not sure they reported to Open Table because I received an email while I was eating at the restaurant that I was a no show? A little confused about that one.
Buyer beware! This was THE BIGGEST ripoff I've ever experienced dining out. The portions are INCREDIBLY small and outrageously expensive. I literally ordered a cheese plate and there was a teaspoon of jam and two tiny peices of manchego. The setting is like being in a food court at the mall...horrible. The most satisfying thing about eating there was the bread sticks we had to request because we were starved. Hugely disappointed for our girls night out tapas dinner in Vegas. The only fun thing about dinner was the free glass of Sangria we split 4 ways due to an extra drink accidentally made by the bartender...
We've eaten at the D.C. Jaleo so we knew what to expect--creative, delicious small plates. Highly recommend the unusual gin and tonics to start. The very very famous shrimp dish with garlic is served with the most delicious hunk of bread imaginable! We also had a seasonable asparagus dish and a very unusual cold soup with almond milk, garlic and grapes--sounds weird but it's fabulous. Also appreciated the courteous and knowledgeable service throughout the meal. Lovely evening!
Went specifically as Jaleo was celebrating Iberico week, as well as for the paella. While the paella with prawns was very tasty, my serving did not include the much anticipated socarrat. Since the paella in large batches and we had already waited 40 minutes for this dish, we did address this with our server. The Iberico Secreto at $85 dollars a serving was requested medium rare and we received one small piece cooked correctly and the other piece was cooked medium to medium well. We had excellent appetizers and would definitely go back for those!
The grill wasn't working Tuesday night, so no paella or grilled meats, which was disappointing, to say the least. My relatives were visiting from the Philippines and I wanted to take them somewhere special and I had had previous positive experiences at Jaleo.
The cocktails were outstanding and everything we ate was delicious. The two kids in our party wished there was more bread served with the shrimp so they could soak up the garlicky goodness. We ended up getting the kids slices of pizza next door after dinner, which maybe should have been our plan all along.
Food 5 / Service 2. We enjoyed every plate we ordered and would absolutely recommend for the food. The service was highly lacking. After recommending two plates for us at the beginning of our meal, our server was nowhere to be found. Our steak dish took more than 45 minutes and it was obvious the server forgot. At a tapas place where multiple guests are ordering multiple dishes, I am willing to forgive a server for accidentally forgetting something if he or she owns up to a mistake, but there was no apology. If I were a chef at this restaurant, I would want to know that lousy service was overshadowing the very excellent dishes we were preparing.
Took my mother and sister here for tapas. It was enjoyable but not spectacular. We had the vegetable paella, the chicken croquettes, the potatas bravas and for dessert the flan and the ice cream soup.
The only negative is that after eating at Bazaar in Miami two weeks earlier, this restaurant was not as good. If I were staying at the Cosmopolitan, I would eat here again, but not if I were making a special trip.
We loved the food! They have a lunch menu for $25 pp & you choose 1 tapas from each of 3 sections. I had gazpacho, which was delicious. Then we shared lobster & shrimp fritters & patatas bravas (potatoes with tomato sauce & aioli-yum!) and my husband had spring rolls stuffed with chorizo & potatoes as well a sautéed shrimp with garlic that we shared. Everything was fabulous!
Amazing food and service. We loved the gazpacho, octopus, piquillo peppers with lardo, baby squid, eggplant with honey and the sea urchin. Thank you to Mary for your service and suggestions! If I lived in Vegas I would eat here on a weekly basis. Bravo to Jose Andres for another great restaurant and staff.
