“Great dining experience in LA”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Lovely food, definitely try the specialty Brussels sprouts in almond butter!
Had both breakfast & dinner here and found the staff attentive both times.
Make a reservation for evening dining tho, it gets busy!
The beef cheeks were 'Melt in the mouth' and the chicken skewers were great too.

We arrived early for our reservation and whilst I know that can cause problems they dealt with it pretty speedily. The biggest problem I have with this place is the atmosphere, it feels pretentious. We were shown to our table and it felt like all eyes were watching us. I'm probably just being paranoid but the whole feel of the place was off.

As for the food, it was ok. Very expensive for what it was.

The waitress, to be fair, was great. Really attentive and friendly. She was the best thing about Cleo and the only reason we stuck around.

Maybe I just caught it on an off day and maybe if you're a movie producer or wanna be actor maybe this is the sort of place you come to have meetings. From a tourists point of view, I couldn't wait to leave.

If you live tapas, this place is the best. Delicious food that is served promptly. This place has a great energy with fantastic service.
Cocktails are awesome and fun to watch being made.
