    The meal was great but we ordered Paella with rice but we got paella with black noodles and returned it. We got a credit for that but were very disappointed that a miscommunication happened.

    Our waitress, Loren, was excellent and those assisting her were very good. The décor was good, but the noise level was very loud. We tried a variety of food. The sangria seemed like it didn't have any alcohol in it at all. The tomato bruschetta was cold with very little flavor, the chicken croquettes were good, but could have used a sauce on the side, the potatoes with a spicy tomato sauce were good, but not hot. We had the cheeses and they were very good, but a small portion and should have had a few crackers or sliced apple for the cheese. The chorizo with mashed potatoes was okay. The shrimp with garlic sauce was delicious, but the shrimp paella with squid ink pasta was lacking in flavor. The desserts were excellent.

    The experience was fair. The service was good, the food was below par and the price was very high, There are many places to eat in Disney Springs and this would be one of the last to choose from. If you want good service, come here. If you want good food, I would go elsewhere.

    We have dined at Jaleo several times in DC and Vegas. This was our first visit to Disney Springs. We arrived late due to traffic but were seated right away. The only complaint that we had were the seats. The booth was on one side and chairs on the other. It was very cramped. My husband had a hard time getting in the chairs as you couldn’t pull them back and the booth was very tight. Other than that it was wonderful. our server was so attentive and she even brought a candle in sorbet for our grandchild who was celebrating her birthday. The food was spaced out and delicious.

    Food was excellent and service was just wonderful. It was my daughter in law’s birthday but nothing was acknowledged about it. Which was fine. But why ask me about it on the reservation- Also It was so warm inside the restaurant- too warm. We ate lots of yummy food and drank Sangria not an inexpensive meal but delicious. Sad they didn’t acknowledge Rachel but we did.

    The restaurant was pretty loud, and there was a bit of a backup at the host stand. Once we were seated, though, the experience was amazing. Probably the best tapas we’ve eaten outside of Spain (and we live in NYC). They were sold out of the disney 50th anniversary special dessert. We were bummed about that.

    We went to Jaleo with high expectations, but unfortunately whoever served us was not prepared to explain the menu. There were 5 of us, our whole family on a late night, crazy to eat and when the dishes arrived, our disappointment was immense!! the waiter told us that the two dishes were enough for 5 of us and barely enough for 2. Again I made another order and the waiter didn't know how to explain the dishes to us!! A very big disappointment. I do not recommend.

    The food was great. I specially enjoyed the Summer of Sangrias option. The place is big and it was fairly empty yet they put us four in a table meant for only two. This caused a number of inconveniences because there was no space to put the plates and we felt like we had to pile the tapas in our plates. The waiter, Edwin, was polite but did nothing when my husband complained about the size of the table. Also there was a hole in the ceiling next to us and they had bucket to catch the water from a leak I suppose. All in all I was disappointed by the whole experience.

    So we enjoyed this place last year. The food was good, the service was great. We returned this past week and the experience was very different. The food was nowhere near as good and the service was not great either. I will say management really tried hard to make it right and we appreciate that!

    Very expensive and out of all the dishes we ordered the avocado salad was the only one worth it. Calamare was soaked in oil and the squid ink gave everyone a stomachache. The squid ink paella had no taste to it, and surely an absurd to pay $32 for a plate like that. We literally decided to stop and go somewhere else. Our waiter was outstanding, very attentive and extremely knowledgeable on the menu and it felt like he was our tour guide through this experience. The other staff were great, our cups were always filled with water.

    Jose Andres restaurants are worth the investment in a dining experience. We love the tapas! We enjoyed the Spanish ham, the omelette, the spinach with pine nuts and fruit, the sangria, the patatas bravas potatoes (my favorite), and the strawberry sorbet. We had access to several of his restaurants when we worked in DC-wonderful to have one in Orlando. We respect his philanthropic efforts to feed people through his foundation in war zones and hurricane ravaged areas.

    The food made all of us really sick. Like running for the bathroom. I dont know if it was just that day or what. But there was 7 of us in our group and we all were living in the bathroom. The restaurant was very warm. The waiter we had though was amazing and very attentive. We where given an allergy menu as well.

    Service was good. Server was very attentive…. That’s the e good news. The rest of our experience was not great. Food was very sub par. The cheese plate was just slices of cheese on a plate…. Never got the bread we ordered. The steak was ok. Shrimp with squid ink pasta was not good. Four small pieces of shrimp with below average pasta?? No thanks Food was way overpriced.
