Mediterranean
Cleopatra is legendary. Cleo is unforgettable. Step inside the striking, pyramid-shaped entrance, and you’re transported by the intoxicating aromas of the open kitchen and its central brick-covered oven. A dramatic pitched roof, Moroccan tiles and chandeliers, white marble counters, and emerald-green curtains create a warm elegance. In this enlivening atmosphere, Chef Danny Elmaleh showcases his acclaimed contemporary Mediterranean cuisine of seasonal shared plates, mezzes, and flatbreads, complemented by a selection of handcrafted cocktails and unique wines. Hailed as “one of the most distinctive restaurants to arrive on the Boulevard in years” by Vegas Magazine, Cleo is a one-of-a-kind dining destination.

We had a reservation and were sat down at a table. We got our water and then sat there for 25 minutes without anyone coming to see us.

We got up and left.

This restaurant offers anice variety of eastern Mediterranean dishes. The portions are small and intended to share. The food was delicious and I would recommend the kebabs. Service on the other hand was ok. Our waitress was attentive but it a long time between a Greek salad starter and the main dishes that came out all at once. It would have been nice to get a staggered delivery of the dishes. Overall a good time.

Food was excellent as usual, service was poor. Best dishes are the crispy brussel sprouts, mushroom flat bread, shwarma, all of the dips are excellent, the watermelon salad was very good

It was a great experience. Specialty Cocktails were tasty. We had the Jalapolitan and clementine. For dinner we had the $40 restaurant week prefix menu which featured 5 courses. I gave 4 stars for food because the Brussel Sprouts were too oily and the falafel too dry. Everything else on the prefix menu was outstanding. Sad to find out this place is closing this year.

The food was outstanding. I was underwhelmed by the service. Most notably the hostess was not friendly at all nor was the note I made in the reservation even read (anniversary dinner). It wasn’t very busy at all and yet I left feeling my party wasn’t a priority.

Excellent Mediterranean cuisine. Attentive service by the staff.

The Restaurant Week menu showcased a good selection of dismisses that are available on their daily menu. Each dish was nicely presented and delicious.

To finish celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary we went to Cleo. The dinner was amazing. All a la carte; with about three to four for two people to share evenly. We went over board and ordered six including desert. The wine choices and specialty cocktails where really good. This a great Mediterranean dinning experience.

We were early (6pm) so the place was not yet busy. The noise level was low and the service was good. Our waiter made a great wine suggestion (turned out to be least expensive on the menu) and his food suggestions were spot on after a short discussion of what we were looking for. The hummus was served with a wonderful lavash (we asked for more). Wagu Kabobs, Calamari, and Tangine Chicken each was prepared in a way we haven't experienced in the US and were very tasty. We'd make it a regular dinner spot if we lived in LV.

Booked through Open Table, but was able to get seated a little early. The restaurant had a romantic vibe, and our server was very attentive. The food is tapas style, so we ordered 4 dishes for the two of us, which was great. The server suggested the mushroom dish, which we ordered. I don't like mushrooms, but the dish was great. We had to leave for a show, so no dessert this time. I returned with a business meeting comprised of 8 people two nights later and had an excellent experience as well.

Arrived into town late. Website said 10:30 pm closing. Took the 10 pm open table dining reservation. Arrived to be told by hostess that closes at 10:15 pm. Told by waitress that closes at 10:10 pm. Told to hurry to make selections.

This is truly a great place to have dinner. Done in the style of a topis restaurant but with new and tasty flavor combinations. The mushrooms and Brussel sprouts were just outstanding and fact if I could I would have ordered nothing but vegetables . Good wine list that complements all the wonderful flavors.

Cleo is one of our favorite dining experiences in Vegas. We have been there at every visit we have made to Las Vegas over the last five years. This hidden gem’s small plate offerings afford the diner a myriad of opportunities to taste their delicious creations. Bring lots of friends.

Really bad service erratic ordered expensive tasting menu and received 3 things at once before cocktail
Received each dish on one small plate for two people and many times there were no plates or utensils provided
Then waiter said would bring dessert menu which was crazy as two of the items the chicken and fish had not been served yet and secondly the tasting menu included a dessert
Really really noisy
Really unfriendly
Really expensive
Really bad

Cleo blew us away again. We ate there last year when we were in Vegas and LOVED it. We absolutely were bowled over again this time. The sticky toffee pudding is still TOO. DIE. FOR. And every dish is unbelievable. They even make things taste good that I would normally never touch, like tuna tartare and even octopus (normally that would be a major YUCK for me!). I love that the dishes are small and relatively inexpensive so that you can order a big variety and try a lot of things by sharing. We had a dish made out of brussel sprout leaves that was so good...you could never imagine that brussel sprouts could taste like that! We went back the next night and ordered the dish again! Cleo is just one of my top favorite restaurants EVER. We are getting a little bit worn out of Vegas, but I will always want to go back if for no other reason than to eat here! OH, also, the cocktails are amazing. Very pricey, but catch the happy hour when they are half price! Much better deal. The Clementine is delicious.
