In the middle of Bethesda downtown, a gem of Spanish restaurants. Selection of tapas was great. Enjoyed Flauta de jamón ibérico Fermín. Grilled steak with peppar confit was absolutely fabolous.

The food at Jaleo was extremely disappointing, especially considering the price point. We had a reservation for 4 and were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival. The restaurant was very crowded as it was a Saturday night and Valentine's weekend on top of that....More

Jaleo is one of my go to's. Maybe it's the solid sangria (get the cava sangria if you REALLY want to have fun!!!). Maybe it's the kind service. Maybe it's the extensive options for veg-centric diners like myself. I can't put my finger on just...More

We were looking for lunch around 1 pm on a Sunday. All the local restaurants were booked except Jaleo. About half the restaurant was empty. Surprising, considering many of the other restaurants in Bethesda were teeming with people. We were promptly seated and handed multiple...More
