Located in the hip Redbury hotel, Cleo is a dining trip from the massive mural of legendary film star Theda Bara to its awesome Middle Eastern tapas. Three can devour an assortment of little dishes that in total are a huge, delicious meal. We had a bottle of Lebanese wine, whoulda thought, from the Bekka Valley!

We let our waiter choose our food. We had a a dip with bread, roasted cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, shrimp, beef cheeks, pork belly, a salad, and spicy cigars. It was all really good, I couldn't stop and ate too much. We rated this the best meal we had in LA, and we had a few nice ones! I would recommend you slow the pace, if not in a hurry. Just order a couple of things, eat slow and drink some wine. I would eat there again until I had tried the entire menu! Don't miss this place!

The restaurant was lovely, clean and nicely decorated. The food was really good and the lotus flower cocktail was yummy. The service was not very good. We waited a really long time for our food to come out and some items seem to be forgotten.One salad came out at the end of the meal.
We brought in a bday cake to celebrate a friends birthday and didn't have time to eat it at the restaurant because the meal took so long and we had a show to get to. I would probably give it another try because the food was so good. Maybe just an off night.

very nice contemporary design.
open kitchen
Mediterranean menu: greek/lebanese/Turkish/north african
Trendy and cosmopolitan clientele.
Good ambiance although noisy as music is too high
Food quality is good
Quantity is really on the low side making value for money low
Excellent wine by the glass

Service is smiling but severely lacks professionalism and experience which is ruining what could be a great experience

around 60USD per person

This was truly one of the most memorable fun and delicious meals I have had in quite a while. All small tapas dishes so you don't overeat. Such a great selection of tastes. I look forward to my return trip on another special occasion. We took a friend for her birthday. Great service, friendly and helpful waiter guided us through the varied selections. All were "home runs". Great unique flavors.
