The atmosphere of the restaurant was great. It gets pretty packed so make a reservation. Ask for a low table not the high tables, they are uncomfortable. The libations were pricy but very creative and good! It's a scene for sure...

Opens at 6pm on a Saturday and thankfully we had a 6pm booking. Waiting line at opening for what became obvious reasons. Absolutely delicious choices. Oh,the mushroom dish!! When you order flatbread thinking its a bread selection, beware, it takes time because it's really a small thin crust pizza but Wow! Came last so was a takeaway. Only so so... More

The menu features Mediterranean small plates, with a Greek-influenced taste palate. The place was super busy, but the service was friendly and efficient. Most of the dishes we ordered were excellent.

We found Cleo when looking for a good place to eat close to the Pantages Theater. It's just around the corner from the theater on the ground floor of The Redbury Hotel on Vine Street. It's a fast-paced place to eat, where all of the dishes are small plates [mezze or tapas style] but designed for sharing. When we arrived... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
