Cleo Restaurant.... it has so many great things a can think of... I've been twice this month and that helped me validate what a good restaurant this is. It is important to say that the food is more on the southern italian and greek style. The plates are served in a middle easter or tapas fashion and the flavours are... More

My sister-in-law, niece, and I had a pre-Pantages theater dinner at Cleo on a recent Saturday night. We had made an early reservation (6 p.m. for an 8 p.m. show) because we had heard that service could be slow. However, we had prompt and courteous service from all waitstaff. We ordered the recommended Brussels sprouts plus the chicken tagine, artichoke... More

Once you get past the bored hostess greeting you, you're in for a treat. Our waiter was fun and friendly. He took the time to explain his favorite dishes to us and made some recommendations on what to start with. We had 8 items on the menu (flatbread, chicken tajine, lamb kabob along with a few other dishes). Everything was... More

The waitstaff was excellent! The food, although very good, was average for this caliber of restaurant. Not bad. Just not very memorable...

We came to Cleo for the New Years Eve special menu. It was a night we will never forget. The service was impeccable only surpassed by the food and cocktails! The Old Hollywood cocktail was a standout. I would come back here in a heartbeat, if only we didn't live on the other side of the world.

Came here (with reservations) before a show at the Pantages. We had reservations for 6:00 before our 8:00 show at Pantages. No problem with timing but we did think service was a bit slow between courses and then two courses came out together. An unusual menu that encourages trying new things. However, most everything is rich so don't overdo your... More

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
