Description: Little Cleo's, named after the iconic fishing lure is located at The Yard - a unique, neighborhood-inspired development project. When you step inside Little Cleo's, you've discovered a hidden coastal gem in the heart of a Central Phoenix neighborhood. This small, intimate restaurant radiates ease with a dash of vintage 40's style, while offering an assortment of fresh ocean fare. Seafood served fresh daily, such as Loup de Mer, Pacific white sea bass, warm truffle butter jars with crab and an array of succulent oysters.

I usually am slightly disappointed in most of the Fox Restaurants but everything we tried here was absolutely delicious. When you walk in it's almost like a city. The Little Cleo Restaurant looks very old fashioned but clean and even uses vintage looking glassware. We started with Crispy Frog Legs and the Sturgeon Bacon Toast. My husband said the Asian...

This was my first visit to the food hall that houses Little Cleo's. The area was packed cheek to jowl, but there was a space for two at Cleo's counter that gleamed like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. We grabbed it. And glad we did. Our space faced the open kitchen so we got to... More

Overpriced bad food. I could have put together the $55 seafood platter together for $10 and it would have been better than that horrible display of bad seafood. My daughter has thrown up twice on the way home. Not up to Fox standards.

This was our second visit to Little Cleo's and it will not be our last! The oysters were perfect and the crab in a jar is the best thing you will ever taste. All around our meal was very well prepared and the staff were very attentive. Be aware that this is a complex of a couple of different restaurants... More

We had a great dinner. The food was excellent and portions just right. Service was a little slow to start but that may have been due to us getting there not long after they opened. All servers were very nice and knowledgeable about the food and drink they served. They have a great selection of Oysters from all over the... More

This was our first visit to this location, one of many Sam Fox concepts. It is a quiet oasis situated in The Yard, a busy, vibrant complex. Our waitperson was knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive. I had a sinful appetizer, crab in a jar of butter with toasted bread, and my husband had the mussels which he described as the largest... More

Went there on a Friday night - what a zoo! The restaurant is in the same compound as 2 other restaurants with large open areas & that makes parking ridiculous & the outside areas very noisy.Hostess was excellent - very friendly & accommodating. Food at Little Cleo's was good - the small plates better than the main plates. The bacon... More

Little Cleo's is a wonderful group dining experience. Located in the Yard, a group of restaurants sharing a semi-outdoor dining and game area is a great opportunity to combine a fun time with fresh, creative seafood dishes. The oysters on the half-shell could have easily been mistaken for dockside fare.

Oh my....who can resist a jar of melted butter, filled with crab, surrounded by toasted bread that is heavenly. It is rich and fantastic. Actually, everything we've had here is wonderful: the quinoa salad (okay, you could eat if you are dieting), the bouillabaisse, frogs legs, salmon, crab toast, roasted corn, shrimp po'boy. They have a burger on the menu... More
