Despite being Valentines Day, the level of service and the quality of food was absolutely fantastic. Normally on a day like Valentines Day you typically get a pre-fixe menu where the food is sub par and the wait staff is rushing you in order to give your table to the next party. This is especially true in a city such as Hollywood. However that was not the case with Cleo. My waitress explained the menu, made suggestions and made us feel welcome. Not once did she make us feel rushed, in fact she suggested other small plates to try. My date loved the place, as did I. The noise level was high, but nothing too crazy. Food was very good. Just thinking about it makes me want to go back. My only complaint was that the tables were pretty close to one another. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Food was tasty. Portions very small. Don’t go here if you are hungry. I’ve been to many middle eastern restaurants and the portions are big, better and half the price. For the $100+ spent I would have been better off flushing the money down the toilet.

i always enjoy coming here. great food and the staff is very considerate. they seat you on time and run a tight ship. its loud which is expected. we go all the time before the theater.
hope the re model does not take too long and does not affect the layout, food, or service too much.
i would take the opportunity to get rid of the most annoying trim wood on the walls near the windows since when you sit there you are leaning up against a piece of trim sticking out of the wall!

Everything from the food, drinks and service was exceptional. Originally I was concerned when the waiter mentioned that food would come out as it was ready since I've had bad experiences in which food would take too long to come out or it all came at once, however, the pacing was great and allowed for my girlfriend and I to flow from conversation to meal easily.

Cleo is great on so many levels. The perfect pre-Pantages meal. I will miss it during it's upcoming renovation but excited for it to return.

Highly recommended that reservations are made for an early dinner. The dining room fills up fast at 6:00pm when the restaurant opens. Our waiter was very helpful with suggesting dishes. We were delighted with dinner and will return, especially when attending The Pantages Theater.

The food is delicious, the service is prompt and friendly throughout your experience. Be advised that portions are small (i.e. tapas style) but our waitress was informative and walked us through the menu.

Everything was amazing, best hummus around. Flavor profiles were excellent with everything we ordered.

This place was absolutely fantastic!!! Literally everything my friend and I had was delicious. I am a sweet cocktail type of person and asked my waitress for a good suggestion. She brought me the Janapolitan. Absolutely delicious! The hanger steak, grape leaves, spanikopita, brussel sprouts, and shrimp kabob were all awesome, but the absolute favorite???? THE DUCK BASTILLA!!! O.M.G!! I could have eaten that all night long! This place is definitely a must try! I will for sure be back.

Solid recommendation from my friends at Infatuation / T-Rex, enjoyed the food, small plates came out quick. Drink list is solid too. Loud and cramped though would be the small downfall.

It was great. Everything we ordered was delicious and they have smaller than normal plates so you can get multiple items and share. The service was fast as well so it's a great place to eat before a show.

Very tasty food. Enjoyed the flavors of the beef kabob, steak, bone marrow, borek, cigars, and dessert. Thought the falafel was too salty.
