I've been eating at Jaleo for over 20 years. It's always a winner. This Bethesda location is quieter than the Penn Quarter one. It's easy to get a table. Do not miss the sangria (red is best), or any of the seafood tapas. Garlic shrimp...More

We ate off their special lunch menu, $16 three tapas and you can add on dessert. We didn't have room for dessert though. I think I loved two of the six. I was with a friend so we shared, and liked two of the others....More

Great sharing plates and atmosphere. Four of us easily shared the plates with a cocktail and a glass of red each. Food was sublime but we did have a Spanish woman with us who knew what to select. A little pricey but worth it.

We ended with chocolate pudding...More

Good food, nice service. Went for a dinner on a weekday evening. Was busy but not too noisy and we could have a conversation.

Jaleo is in the middle of downtown Bethesda, great location, close to metro, cinema, shops, etc. Tends to get very busy and crowded during peak times, reservation is needed. Despite the large crowd, the noise level is not too bad. Very friendly and accommodating staff,...More
