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.

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.

It was not busy at all, however, my guests and I felt a little neglected... We do enjoy the food at your restaurant, but the service was unacceptable :( --my guests and I have been or are in the the food and beverage industry-- Maybe he was having a bad hair day, it happens...

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.

While on vacation we chose to eat here because of the great reviews online. Even with high expectations they still exceeded! From our hostess, greeter and server, everyone was thoughtful, helpful and delightful. The food was amazing! I highly recommend the crispy Brussels sprouts, octopus, olives and hanger steak. If you visit the SLS hotel concierge desk they'll give you a coupon for a complimentary dip, which comes with heavenly freshly baked bread. Cleo truly gives royal service!

We were in Las Vegas for a short mother/daughter trip. Cleo was the perfect choice for us after a long day of shopping. Our waitress was very considerate and helped navigate the menu so that our selections accommodated our food eccentricities. We enjoy the experience greatly.

Cleo's is my lady's favorite restaurant. We went for her birthday dinner. We have been to Cleo's a number of times before and have always been pleased. This visit can be an addition to our pleasant experiences. As per usual the food was superb, the service efficient and non-obtrusive, the atmosphere elegant with a tolerable noise level. We of course shall return especially since we live just down the block from the restaurant.

We had a reservation for our anniversary but this was a disaster. A, we had a server who suggested we should order 4-5 dishes right off the bit, which by the way was a waste. We never received our first order, even after the server himself asked us if we’ve received it 3 times and finally after the dinner was over and yes, still not in, we asked to remove it from the bill, only to see it still there.
Anyways, this wasn’t what we had hoped to experience on our anniversary and rest assured, no way we’ll step a foot in this establishment.
Just a shame.

DELICIOUS. Lebaneh with feta, Greek salad, brussel sprouts (the one on the vegetable menu). Lamb shawarma. Grilled branzino. AND Sticky Toffee Pudding (MUST try even if you dont like or want dessert, like a rich juicy small cake, a la mode.) Very good wines and cocktails as well.

It used to our favourite Resturant and we go there each time we go to Vegas. Our favourite Brussels sprouts dish was soaked with vinegar and way too salty. They seems to season all their dishes with vinegar. The waitress was over worked as she has too manny tables that she was serving and took my dish and forgot to replace it. it was most disappointing and we will not go back again.

This restaurant never fails us. The food , service , quality every time is spot on. We have tried their entire menu over several visits and love it. There are very few jewels like Cleo here in Las Vegas. A big shout out to our server Manny who always takes good care and provides excellent service.

Not as we expected from looking at the online menu. Is actually small plates to share which can add up on the bill. Although the food was very good, it is not my method of choice for dining out.

We come here every time we are in Vegas for work. It is generally outstanding. On this occasion, the food was still fantastic but the service was abysmal. Our regular server seemed a bit overwhelmed, the food runners dropped food on our table about as quickly as possible, and the manager nearly shoved a chair towards the table when we asked for an extra (and not even in the obvious open space). Time to look for a new regular spot in Vegas.

Food is average at best, noise level is high.

Scallops were seared black on one side and not seared at all on the other side and very “rubbery”. The cauliflower was over-seasoned and the Hummus is just ok. Nothing hit the above average factor.

Waitress was nice and the highlight of the meal.

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived but they were very accommodating and the service was attentive. They made some recommendations that we were very happy with. The spicy cigars and the octopus were stand outside. The food came out extremely fast so if you are looking for a leisurely dinner you might mention it or pace your ordering.

We came here for Christmas Eve dinner, and as usual had a wonderful meal. However, service was a bit off that night, which is unusual for Cleo. When we got to Cleo, there was no one at the front desk for a couple of minutes, leading some customers to walk into the restaurant to ask for help. Once we were seated, it took awhile before someone came to our table to provide menus and drinks. Finally, one of our orders was forgotten and had to be added towards the end of the meal.

All that said, they apologized and comped us for the late plate, which was a nice gesture. Everyone can have an off day, and everyone here is really nice so I'm sure it won't be an issue. Plus, the food here is excellent, so I will definitely come back. :)

One of the best restaurants in town. Best hummus in the country. Amazing brussels spouts leaves (the side dish, not the starter). Brilliant chicken tagine with preserved lemon. Charming small dining rooms for 4-6, with privacy drapes.

We have Mediterranean quite frequently, so I guess we're spoiled. We had dinner with five people, so sampled A LOT, including several desserts. The food was good but not amazing. Service was fine, but they forgot one dish, pacing of dishes wasn't optimal. Overall, it was good, but I'd expect more at such prices.
