Food is Spectacular
We haven’t been here since the closure
It’s awesome! Can’t wait to come back!
Good service and excellent food. The only criticism would be the noise. We were a group of 6 but we couldn't hear each other which made converaton very difficult.
After the remodel I have not been there, It came out nice ! Food was great if not better and the cocktails were decent price.
Service was awesome and the paella was very good. Highly recommend!
This place is gorgeous inside but after they reopened from a long remodeling process, they changed their menu and removed most steak items- which is a shame because that skirt steak is the best in town and now it can only be ordered at the Cleo on 3rd which is not nearly as nice of a location.
Both restaurants have limited wines by the glass and the drinks are WAY overpriced.
Their hummus and pita bread are sensational, although the Hollywood Cleo is now just not as good as the original version or the one still on 3rd street.
The food was good but the portions are small. The worst thing was the noise level. We could barely hear each other. However, it’s really convenient for a nibble before a show at the Pantages.
Server was rude and pushy. Was just in a rush t get our order rather than explain us the restaurant and food especially food items. Was just not upto it.
Food was pretty good, but the service was bizarre - had to wave down our server multiple times, ask random bussers passing by for water refills, and one of our dishes was never placed in the initial order.
Delicious food. Great location
Regular customer, strange host experience
I'm new to Mediterranean food and was not adventurous enough to try the seafood or vegetable entrees. Instead, I had the Chicken Kabob and potatoes. I also tried the rice, which was surprisingly delicious (again, I have a boring pallet). I wish there were would have been a little more variety in the boring food department for people like. It was pretty much chicken or steak kabob as the two options.
The service was spectacular, the ambiance incredible, and the overall experience something to write home about. Would definitely come back.
Amazing servers! Horribly maintained restrooms not reflective of what you'd expect from this restaurant. Hopefully that was a rare day. Probably will not return but it was worth the food.
The food wasn’t as good as before the revamp. Atmosphere and design felt thrown together and lacking; was much nicer and more comfortable before. Anton at the bar was lovely as was our waitress.
Hostess’ were nice and ambiance was great upon entrance. Our server greeted us and very warm throughout dinner. The food was absolutely amazing—it’s not surprising that Cleo has such high reviews.
Slow service. Expensive parking. $25 for parking was a little much. Great quality food. Beautiful ambiance. Very clean
I really enjoyed the food, however I found the ambiance and noise level too much for me. Granted this was a Saturday night, but it was not exactly my cup of tea.
Our first time back after the remodel and we were disappointed to see the menu change. Some dishes still executed well and others not so much. Our server was distracted for most of our time so all in all not the same experience as before.
The new look of Cleo is wonderful. We always enjoy a great meal and drinks prior to a play.
We didn't eat a lot but had perfect dishes. The lamb and apricot tagine was terrific. At first you think "hmm, this is a small-ish dish for a main course", but it is not, it is full of tender gorgeously flavored lamb with apricots, date puree, sesame, other delicious things, served with perfectly made Basmati rice. Then: we ordered pistachio ice cream and asked whether we could have some slices of one of the elements of a platter of different sweets, the Halvah. Of course. Heavenly. Good wine and beer, too.
The food was amazing and the restaurant is comfortable and elegant. Other than it being a little pricey, it was awesome!
Having eaten here when it first opened (as well as the Las Vegas and Downtown locations), the food was very lackluster. No standout dishes or flavors. Service was fine. The interior is rather blah- I feel like it’s been redecorated since it first opened as I remembered it being much more attractive. Unfortunately won’t return.
The new design is great! This restaurant is really great for special occasions and groups
The service was excellent so was the homemade pita bread.
Second time was not a charm. Service was abysmal. I ordered sparkling water which the waiter confirmed was Pellegrino, he left us Perrier without saying why and ran off, finally asked a hostess that came by and she said they dont carry Pellegrino. The rest of the "service" was non-existent and ruined the dinner. I had to ask hostess twice to find my water who appeared to intentionally not see me after walking by 4-5 times always looking away, noticed he had the time to chat with other customers. Food was all good but priced to include service which was not provided.
My daughter is a vegan & there were 3 options for vegans—one was mushroom
Tacos & when they came my daughter said is this meat—it feels like meat in my mouth?!!
We ask our waiter who takes it back to the kitchen and comes back & says it’s LAMB!
I hit the wrong thing for your order—Not I’m so sorry once:-/ we just said please bring our
Check & again he never said I’m sorry! My daughter hasn’t eaten meat in 15 years!!! She was pretty upset but made me tip 18% for
All the others that share it!
Our food was delicious- great shareable meal with choices for everyone!
Great meal, food was great and the cocktails were amazing.
The drinks were delicious, the food was fried and crunchy, and the experience was fantastic. We told the waitress we had to leave for a show and she made sure we had plenty of time to enjoy our dinner
Wonderful place for a date or special occasion. This location good for pre-Theater dining. The food was very good with a very good variety of selections. The taste and presentation was very good. Service was excellent.
The waitress and servers were attentive and courteous but the kitchen was extremely slow getting out food. We ordered several appetizers and one crispy chicken entree, letting the staff know we had Pantages show tickets and a one-hour deadline to meet. The drinks arrived promptly as did the oysters (no cooking required) but the cooked appetizers took about 30 minutes and it took over 50 minutes for the single chicken entree to arrive. The entree was a small drumstick and thigh, with scattered decorative herbs, making the portion more of an appetizer than a meal. Luckily we weren't very hungry. There were few people in the restaurant on a Thursday night so perhaps the kitchen was understaffed. I would go back for light appetizers and drinks but look elsewhere for a hearty meal and conversation. It was surprising loud in our corner for the few people filling less than half the tables. Might be unbearably loud with a full house.
Nothing monumental about the restaurant. Pretty noisy and poor service. Not a great value for money option. I don't think it's worth going for a full meal experience. It's only okay for a couple of drinks with some pita and dips. The service was not even mediocre.
Thank you for the nice evening
Paella was absolutely delicious and service was amazing
After many visits to the old Cleo we were happy to see this location re-open. The menu, while modified, is still consistently excellent. Service was pleasant and accommodating but off — some small plates came first, followed by our overpriced drinks, followed by all the other courses, and finally our olives and pickles arrived last.
The valet, at $20, is one of the biggest ripoffs on earth. I cannot recall paying such an exorbitant rate even at places that are far swankier and in busier locations. To pay that at Hollywood and Vine is a joke and the main reason we will not return.
The food was great, but took a little long once we ordered. Brussel sprouts and Mediterranean dips with fresh baked pita were amazing, and the steak kabob was perfectly cooked. We’d skip the rice, potatoes and chicken kabobs next time and try something new. Would have loved to try a salad, but the Greek we ordered never came. Old fashioned’s were also delicious!
It was a little to dark in the dinning area. It was hard to see our food
Before the remodel, we were great fans. This is our first time back and we usually go when we go to the Pantages, so 5-6 times a year. Food was good although the choices are now much smaller than they were. Service was anything but good. Some of the wait staff had an attitude. Impatience when asking menu questions is not pretty. My wife finished her glass of wine and rather than ask her if she wanted another, the waitress just picked up the glass. We had to ask someone bussing tables to find her to order another it tok quite a while to find her. We were there early so it wasn't like they were crowded. I don't know what changed but the change is sad.
Food was disappointing. Our fried eggplant was way too oily and inedible when the dish was less the hot. Other dishes were good, but none too exciting. Maybe the oily eggplants appetizer spoiled the meal.
