My three Freshman roommates and I were enjoying a reunion weekend in Las Vegas, and a friend in the catering world recommended Jaleo for our first night dinner celebration. Nothing could have been better! The smallish tapas plates were all delicious, and it was such fun to share among the four of us. We got to sample 9 different dishes and the pace of the evening was also perfect, giving us plenty of time to relax and catch up with each other after a long time. We would go back to Jaleo any time for a special, delectable evening!

Great dining experience. So many wonderful dishes to share and explore new flavors. The paella served was vegetable and the next paella created was shrimp, which we didn't taste. The paella is made in large batches over an open fire... Very entertaining.
Tasting Menu experience
I wasn't sure what to expect at Jaleo, but I had a great evening. The layout is very modern. We were in a corner two table, which has a shared bench. The way it was set meant I was head on with another table which was a little awkward at first, but the food, service and cocktails made me forget that very quickly! We opted for the tasting menu, which was labelled as an experience. You have no idea what you are getting, but it was great fun and real variety. The downside being a few dishes had cauliflower in which is my only food no-no. The other person loved every dish though! Everything was delicious and the cocktails (margarita and Jose's G&T) were amazing. Also, all the servers were super friendly in a really genuine way. It was a fab evening and experience.... I would definitely recommend to a friend, but only the tasting menu to the more adventurous as you don't know what you are going to get.
Good food, but don't go hungry...
The food is very good, but very small portions. We weren't very hungry, so we did okay, but if you go in hungry, it will cost you an arm and a leg. Very attentive service and overall atmosphere is very good. Will definitely go back (maybe on a day we had a buffet for lunch....)

Jaleo was our favorite dinner experience while my friend and I were in Las Vegas. We are pretty serious foodies and we both agreed that our expectations were exceeded at Jaleo. We will definitely return!!

Food was unremarkable. Presentation was nice and drinks excellent.
Fabulous tasting menu!!!
The tasting menu is almost hidden at the bottom of the menu. Look for it and ORDER IT! This was easily one of the best meals we've ever had, paired perfectly with spanish wines. The service was perfect as well. A+!!
Unique dining experience
A friend recommended we try Jaleo and we were not disappointed. The paella was exceptional and it was great watching it be prepared over the open fire. Garlic shrimp were terrific as were the grilled vegetables. I am not a gin and tonic but we tried several of the specials and they were unique and excellent.

Good for tapas . Very good food , loved the decoration . Service not 100% .
Poor service, food expensive and not worth it. Very small and loud restaurant
Jaleo - Consistently excellent!
Everything was great to fantastic. This was about the 5th time I had the olives which included "Liquid Olives". Salmon Crudo was excellent (although a bit small). Chicken Fritters were good but nothing to write home about. The Chorizo wrapped in potato had great flavor. Chicken filled Canalon Pasta was a hit at our table!. And, of course, the desserts were incredible! I think the favorite of the table was the Veggie Paella.
Fun times. Amazing food.
Came here for a girls dinner and my expectations were blown away! Their food is amazing. We ordered the stuffed squid, scallops, the bread with tomato, chicken croquette, sausage paella,and Brussels sprouts. Everything was great! The paella was amazing!

This is the place to be... For the people certainly not for the food It is hot, fun and happening... The food is very scarce, and nothing to write home about, very small plates (not small price tags tho)... Full woth beautiful people. Theur trade mark "tge Pealla" was no available, i was surprised. Regular food, soso service, high prices but over all a great experience... Haha
Can't say enough about the food and thankfully the server was knowledgeable as we didn't recognize numerous ingredients. Must order at least 5-6 dishes as each is enough for 2 people to have a few bites. If you have large appetites this may not be the place for you as you'll run up your bill quickly. Each plate is $12+ . We ordered 5 plates for 2 of us + 2 alcoholic drinks and the tab with tip was a little over $100. We ended up searching for snacks about 2 1/2 hours later. Tables on top of each other and very loud environment. Great for foodies but not so much for dates and intimate conversations
Best in Las Vegas!
Jaleo is one of those dining experiences for foodies that must not be missed. From the pan tomate straight through to the pan de chocolate, and everything in between, this restaurant delivers the goods. A delicately flavored, crispy, not-too-fishy salt cod fritter pairs with a sweet blue cheese and pears. Simple sauteed spinach offsets the complex spices of housemade chorizo. You just keep ordering, and the food just keeps coming, and each wave of food seems to outdo the former. And let's not forget the wines -- an excellent list of Iberian wines and ports, with a fine selection by the glass, complements the food perfectly. Traditional Spanish after-dinner drinks finish the meal. Service is knowledgeable and unobtrusive, except when they tried to serve us our neighbors' food -- twice. The ambiance is noisy and convivial. You're likely to want to know what your neighbor is eating, and they're likely to share, but you can also have privacy and romance in a corner booth if that's what you're seeking. One of my favorite dining experiences. I would return over and over, never eating the same thing twice, except for eating all my favorites, which is everything! Chef José is the greatest.

we did the tasting menu with the wine pairings. This is the only way to go being that you get to taste a little bit of everything! It was amazing.
Good, but not great
The food was good, but over-priced. The service was spotty. It wasn't very busy, but the waiter forgot one of our dishes, and we waited forever. We had to tell him that we didn't receive it. We had planned to order more food, but due to the slow service we decided to go elsewhere to order more food. It was fun for a one-time experience, but I don't think I'll go back. I would have appreciated it if the waiter had offered a discount on his mistake. It was my brother's birthday, and I wanted to take him somewhere special. It did not feel special, just lackluster.
Food was the best part
Our server was non-existent and actually transferred us to another server mid meal who dropped our check and left. Food was awesome and presentation was unique.
Every time we visit Las Vegas we come here for dinner. Gambas al Ajillo is our favorite!
Slow, bad services and super expensive
Too expensive for what they offer. Food was good but service was very slow and felt unattended (this was lunch time).
Went with friends our first night in Vegas. Food was lovely, staff & service was sharp and food came out quickly. Enjoyed the tapas, especially the shrimp, dates and lamb chops! Of course not as intimate as DC location, but great energy and Vegas style fun.
Great environment, small issues
Jaleo is always a fun place, great for a pre-night out meal. The energy, the people...all makes it a very fun atmosphere. The food is always good (though as tapas normally is, deceptively expensive). Two small comments on Jaleo in Las Vegas. 1) I've been to this location (and the DC one) and this one continually runs behind schedule. Either better planning needs to happen, or better management of reservations, but a bit odd to always wait 30 mins after you have a reservation. Luckily I didn't have a show to get to, but others might. 2) Salty-I know restaurant food is always salty, but this time specifically the food was highly salted with the chef's heavy hand. Overall I would recommend, but would say this Jaleo location has some small tweaks to make to be as good as Jose's other locations.

Great time. Great ham. Seemed like the wait staff all had the same recommendations for a few items. Our paella had no saffron in it and was more like fried rice.
6 different tapas chosen all amazing especially the lamb sooo tender. great food and great ambience, a must try!!! desserts amazing too 😊

Absolutely delicious!!! Excellent service!!!!
An underwhelming restaurant with slow service and mediocre food. Deep fried dates wrapped with bacon have no flavor (how is that possible??) and they think it's "cool" and "unique" to serve a dish out of a tennis shoe.
Spanish Tapas as its finest!
Love this place! Been there both for lunch and dinner and would recommend both. The lunch menu is a bit more limited than the dinner but does include their amazing paella. We had the three course tapas lunch which consisted of an appetizer, salad and Paella. It was a set menu but the chef is amazing and everything is so yummy! When I was there for dinner we decided to splurge and order the chef's tasting which had too many courses to count. And while the portions are smaller sized it was certainly filling. Well worth the money! Dinner can be a bit noisy so if you're looking for a quiet, romantic place this may not be it. Lunch was quite a bit quieter as it was not too busy. Reservations for either lunch and especially for dinner are recommended. Sooooo good!!
Excellent food and service. Loud.
Excellent food and service. Loud.
The only Spanish flavor is in the name
It is not Spanish food, it is a bad and expensive interpretation of kind of food.
Jose makes few errors
Jaleo by Jose Andres succeeds very well. The service isn't perfect, but they are extremely busy. While the place can be so loud you can barely converse, the dishes are exceptional and quite reasonable.
Expensive and stylish tapas
This place is fun and the food is awesome... but like the hotel you'll find it in, don't expect a deal or a bargain.
Had a great time bringing my team here for tapas since that is what they wanted. Foods was delicious as always and we were able to entertained watching our director try a porron for the first time. Went with fairly safe bets since the guys are not overly adventurous but they really enjoyed the roasted cauliflower
Not one of the best
The food was just ok. Nothing was bad, but nothing was amazing. The portions were very small for what they were charging, even for a tapas place. The menu was confusing and the service was very slow. We had a reservation and still had to wait 20 minutes past to be seated. We were a group of 6 and none of us cared for it.
