Came here before a show at the Pantages. Thought it might be fun. New it would be busy but ready for it. Waiter took our order and disappeared! Waited half an hour to get another drink! Got the first part of our order than had to wait forever for the last. When the waiter finally showed up again after fort-five... More

This restaurant is definitely worth the visit. We had some trouble locating it as it is in a hotel, but once we found it is was a very nice experience. Basically everything we tried was very good, but I d especially recommend the Brussels sprouts.

Cleo was packed the Friday night we ate there, dozens of people just waiting for tables. Our reservation got us seated quickly and we could see the big dining room from our corner booth. The menu is a large collection of Mediterranean tapas, from flatbread to hummus. Our waiter could have been a bit more prompt in taking orders or... More

Loved the idea of smaller portions, so we tried 6 items. The brussel sprouts were a little salty but flavorful, the grilled squid was meaty but bland, the lamb sliders were cooked well but had a strange flavor, the mushroom flatbread was delicious and the pork belly was the best we've ever had. Plus the sticky toffee pudding was so... More

Love Mediterranean, love tapas? Don't miss this extraordinary eatery at the Redbury in Hollywood. Cleo's has a wonderful variety of mezze and and lamb tapas. as well as other meats, seafood, and veggie delights. It's one of the few places in the LA area where you can get kibbes, those tangy little lamb and kasha fried "torpedoes." The restaurant is... More

Went here tonight with high hopes, but was disappointed for sure. While the drinks were alright, they weren't anything exceptional. The tapas were average. I had the tuna tartare which was good, but not amazing. The real downfall came with the cauliflower which had so much salt I had to send it back. As a replacement I ordered the Brussel... More

Great selection of tapas style food. We shared eight dishes, most of which were excellent. The octopus, lamb, and oysters were fantastic, as was the sticky toffee pudding dessert. Ambience was good with a semi-casual atmosphere. Service was also very good. Not so cheap - the three of us spent $185 with a bottle of wine, but worth it. This... More

I been here on many occasions, but usually go before a show at the Pantages or the Fonda Theater. If you're a fan of mediterranean food you'll love this place. Everything is great - especially love the flat breads and the tagines; the drink menu is extensive and excellent. On occasion the service can be slow but otherwise this is... More

Went here before a concert at the Pantages and had a delicious small plate meal. There is valet parking in the building adjacent to the restaurant - the parking was easy in and out but the cost ended up higher than if we would have parked in the fenced lot just next door (although this was much easier with almost...
