After opening the original Jaleo in Washington, D.C., in 1993, chef José Andrés expanded to the suburbs of the city before turning his attention from Spanish cuisine to other cuisines like Mediterranean and Mexican. Now he has opened Jaleo in Sin City. As Spain's unofficial culinary ambassador, for both traditional cooking and Ferran Adrià’s brand of avant-garde, Andrés keeps the Jaleo menu packed with traditional tapas and paellas, using the finest ingredients and time-honored techniques with measured modern flourishes.

bacon wraped dates are the best food I have ever eaten.
There is a $4 tapas menu at the bar from 1630-1900
Definitely try their Paella!
Dinner tonight was great. Manchego cheese on tomato toast was great. Also loved the calamari, garlic shrimp and flan!
Order the spinach and raisins, the garlic shrimp and the manchego cheese!
Jaleo stands out for such simplicity as garlicky sautéed shrimp. - June issue 2012
Try the bacon wrapped dates.
Great Happy Hour specials - $4 selected tapas & $4 red sangria
Go early on Saturday for the brunch menu without the brunch crowds. Our waitress was amazing and the whole staff was wonderful with the 2 little ones we had in tow.
Go to Jaleo and order Datiles con tocino 'como hace todo el mundo'. Order it again.
Worst service I've ever had. I will not go back
Wow! Great people watching and real foodie goodness. BUT be careful, some of this is too clever for it's own good. Honey on eggplant ? Yuk!!!! Let servers be adult supervision. They are great.
Big portions are served here. Lol
A bowl of Salmoreja rewards soup lovers with creamy tomato stock, salty Serrano ham, a shimmering, submersible egg and a splash of bracing vinegar. - November 2011 issue
This place was a HUGE disappointment... Overpriced, bland, mediocre service. Two thumbs DOWN!
Olive oil ice cream FTW
Try the Lamb Chops (via @Foodspotting)
Endibias con queso de camera y naranjas is the hidden jewel of the menu.
Is there anything bad in this place?? I don't think so! My advice: just go often and try everything!!! :D
Want to take more of a break? Jaleo is an outstanding sit-down restaurant for Spanish food and tapas.
Try the Calamares en su Tinta (via @Foodspotting)
Try the Jamon Serrano Fermin (via @Foodspotting)
Calvin B. was AWESOME. Food was fantastic!
"Pay the premium for the purest pigs on the planet: jamon de Ibérico... It’s an exquisite piece of meat, eaten with tomato-smushed bread and little else." - November 2012 Issue
Bacon wrapped dates!! Our server was far from spectacular. But the food and speed of service were great!
Love the seared piquillo peppers with goat cheese. Have to try this at home.
Great lunch option to try many different, delicious flavors without overdoing it :-)
Garlic shrimp and croquetas de pollo are amazing.
Awesome sangria and Happy Hour 4:30-7:00 pm!!
Make sure to leave room for the chocolate dessert with salted carmel... SO yummy!!
The "salt air" on Jose's Margarita is interesting... was not for me.
