Jaleo - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
The food was good. It was really overpriced however and it felt like I was eating in the mall. The experience was not that fantastic. The server kept having to ask others for information and didn't seem to have a grasp of the menu. For this price point and for being a "Jose Andres" restaurant I would expect a much richer experience with more qualified servers and a better atmosphere. The mall vibe really turned me off.
We have always loved dining at this restaurant during our trips to Vegas and have not only taken guests there, but have also recommended friends and colleagues. However, this last experience left us telling ourselves that we would not return. Nothing was right from the drinks to the food. They were out of Mediterranean tonic for their signature gin and tonic and without saying anything tried to surreptitiously pour in the Indian tonic, thinking we wouldn't notice. The iberico bellota ham had a slight stale rancid odor. The spicy chili shrimp did not have any chilis and was very bland, without flavor. An expensive price for such a mediocre meal! What happened Jaleo????
Additionally, Jaleo recorded my reservation with open table as a no show!!!
I am a big fan of Jose Andres and Jaleo never disappoints - in DC or Vegas. Our service was great and fast, but not too fast that we couldn't enjoy our meal. We were seated close to two other couples who contributed to a very social and convivial atmosphere.
No enthusiasm from service staff.
Felt like he was doing us a favor by taking our order.
We came for paella but not able to order something that's on the menu.
Terrible presentation.... bland taste.
Would not recommend. Especially in a town that has tons of choice.
Amazing experience at Jaleo...friendly staff that was very knowledgable about the food and beverages. Beautiful and delicious Spanish cuisine. The gin tonics are incredible and the parron was a fun addition to the table. The paella pit is very cool. My first experience at a Jose Andres restaurant and I plan to now visit all of them!
The food tasted very good and the service was excellent. However, having lived in Spain, I didn't think the paella or the san gria tasted as good as I remember in Spain. Also, for tapas (appetizers) sized portions, I thought the prices were just too high. So, I would only go to Jaleo for special occasions when I also want some Spanish food. Therefore, I won't be going to Jaleo very often at all. Sorry to have to say that, but I just think their food is too pricey for the small size portions that they serve. Otherwise, it's a great place to go out.
We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings for 6 and asked them to limit the fish dishes to 1, since one guest dislikes fish. We basically got 3 dishes with the same sausage in it. They totally phoned it in. The only great dish was the gazpacho. Would never recommend or go back!
Took two Spanish food virgins with me for special celebration. Decor is hip and modern. Wait staff well trained and attentive.
Our server made great recommendations and we loved everything we ordered. The wine recommendations were spot on as well.
I will definitely return on my next trip to Las Vegas.
We had the most fantastic dinner here at Jaleo. The menu was interesting and the blend of flavors indescribable. Our waiter Tony was the best. Since it was obvious we didn't eat pork, he recommended the most outstanding dishes that we could eat and steered us away from dishes we weren't sure about. He was so good that we let him choose our dessert based on the fact we trusted him completely. What a great idea. And the sommelier was wonderful, helping us pick a wine that would go with our multiple courses. He even picked out a perfectly matched drink to go with our dessert after he and the waiter consulted. Liked that he checked back with us frequently and kept our wine glasses full. One of the few restaurants I can recommend without any "buts".
The restaurant is very casual, maybe e bit noisy because of the bar positioned on the other side. Food is ok, as far as I could try, but nothing special. I must say they had been very unlucky with the fire place and the fire alarm they generated because of luck of experience handling a real BBQ. Kitchen was closed earlier and I couldn't try anything from the grill. I was disappointed but I can't say it was their fault... I've been unlucky but it deserves another chance!
