Jaleo brings alive the spirit and flavors of Spain with a menu reflecting the rich regional diversity of classical and contemporary Spanish cuisine, under the direction of renowned chef José Andrés. Jaleo offers an impressive assortment of tapas, the traditional small dishes of Spain, as well as savory paellas, superb sangrias and a fine selection of Spanish wines and Sherries in a festive, casual atmosphere.

"We've traveled in Spain extensively so we know something about tapas. Jaleo ranks among the very best tapas places in Spain for quality and variety.
The decor is quirky---the tables are way too close and the room is noisy.
Service was fine; prices were reasonable.
On balance: We'll be back!"

"This is a fabulous Indian restaurant. Great food and accordingly somewhat pricier than other Indians. Gracious and professional service.
We were initially seated near a table with a screaming child. At our request, the host moved us far away. This was good as the child kept screaming for the next hour.
Note to owner: This is a white tablecloth expensive restaurant. It is not suitable for small children.
Assuming you don't have a screaming child at a table near you, I highly recommend this restaurant."

"Had a business breakfast here during one of Boston's nasty snowstorms.
The room was quiet and tables were far enough apart from each other to be able to conduct business.
The menu is straight, traditional American and the prices are fair given the upscale surroundings. Though it wasn't on the menu, the chef made me a smoked salmon omelet. Just fabulous.
I'll be back."

"Del Frisco's more casual and hipper younger brother. Well-prepared drinks, excellent wine selection, great menu. Everything we ordered was well-prepared. Professional and friendly service.
Specifically: Deviled eggs, meaballs, truffled fries for appetizers. Steaks, sole, ahi tuna for entrees. All superb.
We'll be back."

The legendary restaurant is for the food and wine aficionado. Blending contemporary American cuisine with one of the best wine selections anywhere, the Palace Arms consistently rates among the finest restaurants in Denver. Signature items such as a caesar salad prepared table side, seared steak of Colorado bison, combined with many other creative contemporary or traditional dishes. The "New" Palace Arms provides a casual dress code where jackets are not required.

"Great traditional restaurant. The tableside Caesar salad preparation is very old school and expertly executed.
Fabulous Tournedos Rossini. Also old school.
World class wine list. Prices range from reasonable to breathtaking. Sommelier is helpful.
Great cocktails.
Very expensive but worth it.
We'll be back."

"This is a tapas-style restaurant in Nordstrom's, Burlington Mall.
Excellent imaginative food. Great wines by the glass. Enjoyed their fresh take on chopped salad, fried calamari, and cherry-glazed beef. Outstanding chocolate cake. Very rich coffee served in a French press. Best coffee of any restaurant in recent memory, in fact.
Very good service, but room is somewhat understaffed. Room has pleasant atmosphere especially given that it's right off the Nordstrom sales floor.
We come here often and will be back."
