    Awesome fare and choices. Tapas portions are fair and mouthful. The service was unobtrusive yet attentive and friendly. We sat outside where we could hear each other, without shouting, as the noise level inside was unbearably high and the inside felt crowded.

    I love this place as a local who goes often. But the loudness is crazy. Please, Mr Andres, do something to mute noise in your otherwise wonderful restaurants! Outdoor - where it’s quieter - is not always an option because of weather.

    Great food. Excellent service. The only issue was a lack of air conditioning.

    I was at Jaleo twice within the same week. First time it was great! Second time the staff wasn’t attentive. Waited a long time to get my drink, couldn’t enjoy it with my food. Some of the food was greasy. Lastly, they placed a plate that I didn’t order on my table which I didn’t touch. Next thing you know a waiter comes and picks up the plate with attitude as if I was going to eat it?! They were all over the place last night. I definitely expect a different type of service at that price point.

    Loved the new (?) lunch menu! I really prefer “traditional” gazpacho. Took a friend for her first time and she loved it too!
