Jaleo - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
Sub par service, sub par food, never going back. My GF and I were really excited about eating dinner here given our experience in DC. We had a 5:30 pm reservation for 2, but with a 7pm show scheduled we decided to go early. We got seated at 5:10 thanks to the restaurant being fairly slow. Our server came over and was friendly, but did not come back for over 25 minutes due to complications with other guests. That ended up not being too bad because he sent the manager over to help which we thought was great. We informed the manager we had a show to catch and ordered appropriately. We were told the paeilla was not ready and it was only the shrimp version. We ended up ordering the endives salad, calamari, chorizo, potatas bravas, and the lamb (based on the managers recommendation as his favorite dish). The endives salad was very good, but the calamari was terrible and overcooked. The potatas bravas and chorizo were good but not amazing. The biggest disappointment was the lamb. No one came to check on the table as food came to ensure it was all out. @6:25 we asked about the lamb and were told the order was never put in by the manager. At this point we had to leave to make our show, which management knew, and told the staff we didn't want it. No apology was given by management, and instead we left with a $75.00 pre tip bill and hungry stomachs. Beyond disappointed.
Loved this place - creative dishes and a good wine list/cocktails with prices that are $$$. Dinner for 2, we opted for the tasting menu ($50) and wine pairings ($50). Added a couple of small optional dishes - it was a LOT of food and very broad.
Would totally recommend this place - our server was fantastic - lots of buzz in the restaurant - best seats are sofa-like on the side of the restaurant - good people watching (it's Vega$)...
The food was absolutely amazing. I have been waiting years to go to a Jose Andres restaurant and this exceeded my expectations. Of all the amazing food, from the best slider I have ever had to the Iberico pork, my favorite dish was the Endives. I am a hard core meat eater and love pork. The pork was mouthwatering and blew my mind, but the Endives threw me off how good they were. That's how you know it's a great restaurant.
Came with a group of 7 for lunch. We ordered a ton of things to share with recommendations from our waiter. The cured meats and cheeses were spectacular. Paella was very tasty. And the shrimp fritters were fantastic! Service was spot on. Would definitely recommend.
Short review: Excellent variety of tapas. Food very good. Service had challenges. Room is loud, tables are close and there is a lot of activity. Not the place if looking for a quiet date night.
If you want details: Asked server #1 for recommendations and explained we don't eat mushrooms. He suggested a paella with side of asparagus and explained that they should be eaten together. We enjoyed a few starters-tomato bread, manchego cheese, garlic shrimp and iberico ham-all excellent. Server#2 arrived and announced that made to order paella was done. Asparagus arrived and we waited approximately 10 minutes until server#1 noticed that we had no paella. Server #2 came back and apologized that paella was not ready. Although never disclosed, it appeared that another couple 2 tables over received our paella. They made it right by bringing us another asparagus with paella which showed up 10 minutes later. We were in no hurry, but expected a $$$ restaurant to be able to execute on timing - which was particularly aggravating given that servers went out of their way to tell us to eat the dishes together and also told us that paella was ready. Server #2 dropped off paella, explained the ingredients and said it contained mushrooms. As we picked through the rice looking for them, server#1 came by and assured us that there were no mushrooms. Not the end of the world, but another WTF moment. Staff at a higher-end restaurant like this should know the menu. We dug into paella, which was very tasty and came with a whole Spanish pork sausage. Unfortunately, sausage was served medium rare. Since I do not like my pork pink, I asked the server to have kitchen put it back on the flame-no problem, but here we go again. If known that I needed to order sausage at desired temp, I would have done so up front. Manager came by to apologize and convince me that this "special" pork was to be served at pink temp. She made it right by comping paella and 1st drink. 4* food, 2* service, 4* Mgmt.
Innovative tapas, each delicious and beautifully presented. We ordered 7 tapas for 2 people, and the chef created a sequence from what we ordered so that it was our own, individualized tasting menu. Prompt and attentive service without being intrusive. We've been to Spain several times and enjoy their tapas--these match or exceed anything we had in Spain.
This is my favorite tapas restaurant. I have been to Spain and the food here in Jaleo is better than some of the restaurants I visited over there. Their paella negra is the best I've tasted and so is the gambas! I make it a point to come here every time I go to Las Vegas. I wish they open one in Southern California!
Although the staff was friendly, they did not seem to understand that it is important to have all guests served around the same time. One person in our group did not get his first course until after we notified the waiter who didn't apologise for the error. He merely stated that they were making it at the time. The other items did not come simultaneously either. The paella did not seem authentic. It had too much tomato sauce and was rather tasteless. However, the tapas were very good.
Jaleo exceeded all of my expectations. I have never had traditional Spanish tapas before and this was certainly a treat. Every part of our dining experience was excellent. The waiter explained the menu well and helped guide us to make choices. You can order as you go which was a great way to try as much or as little as your heart (and stomach) desired. The food presentation and the food itself was amazing. One of my favorites was the chicken croquettes and the delicious pan con chocolate for dessert was a hit! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves tapas, wants to try it, or is a foodie. Great spot in the Cosmopolitan!
