This will be the one and only time we go to this restaurant. I get the Tapas thing but the prices are ridiculous for appetizer size portions. The waitress encouraged three to four plates per person. We spent $80 on 2 people and then they charged my card twice! Place is dark and menu darker. Bring a flashlight, seriously. A... More

The Resteraunt is uber cool and very busy, it seems to be popular. They squeezed us in on a Saturday evening without a reservation. my first and main issue was lighting.While its cool to have a cozy trendy atmosphere, we could not see the menu as it was so dark, even though it was a bright sunny saturday evening and...

We booked to eat here whilst honeymooning in LA. The restaurant was dimly lit but very atmospheric. The food was delicious, but in all honesty, you don't get a massive amount, and it's at the more expensive end of the spectrum, especially when you start adding in your drinks. I'd definitely recommend giving this place a shot, especially if you... More

Tucked inside The Redbury Hotel in Hollywood is a bustling middle-eastern restaurant whose almost exotic decor and contemporary California-meets-Bethlehem cuisine might be intimidating if it weren't juxtaposed to the soft classic rock music playing in the background. The service was great, especially considering every patron was ordering 4 or 5 dishes and the place was packed. Our server was knowledgable... More

One of Hollywood's hot spots - awesome cuisine - super cool vibe - beautiful inside. Trendy adult-oriented restaurant - but we brought our 8-year-old son; and no concerns - he fit right in. Attire is really flexible too - some folks dressed up for theater, others in jeans, even (me) in shorts & nice collared shirt - it's a fun... More

Great food and service. We came here for a late dinner after a 6.30pm show at the Pantages theatre around the corner. Started with cocktails at the bar - both delicious. We had one with cucumber and elderflower, the other with cardamom, orange and prosecco (this was our favourite). We had 6 tapas - mushrooms, Brussel sprouts, spinach, artichoke flat... More

First stop on our girls trip to Hollywood. Be prepared to order everything and share with your table. It is superb. Service was excellent. We especially enjoyed the ravioli. Put on your list of restaurants to try!

Cleo is a great restaurant. Reading through the reviews there really isn’t anything I can add. The service was superb. The food excellent. The location is around the corner from the Pantages Theater, excellent. It worked really well for us. Four of us ordered garlic shrimp, spanakopita, mushroom flatbread, lamb kefta and longanisa, a sausage. The longanisa sausage was the... 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.
