At the end of our meal, the waitress spilled my glass of wine, which was almost half of a glass. Since we had already paid the bill, she didn’t seem to really try to fix the situation. She offered to give me another glass but why would I want to make my friends sit around and wait for me to chug a glass of white wine? Not to mention, the wine soaked my shirt and also spilled into the bottom part of my baby’s stroller. Her diaper bag was soaked. Then she proceeded to blame it on the silverware, because she said they’re heavy and often fall off dishes. If she knew that happened, why would she pick up my plate with the silverware on it? The knife fell from the plate as she was clearing the table and it spilled my glass.

The food was pretty good. I the service was pretty bad though which killed the whole thing. We had to hunt down our waiter twice. And it took forever to get anything from him.

The reason I wanted to go to Cleo in NYC, is that I just returned from BahaMar in Bahamas. There was a Cleo restaurant at the SLS Hotel. I was hoping the food would be exactly the same. It wasn't. The most disappointing thing for me, is that they did not have the flatbreads on the menu like the restaurant in the Bahamas. I guess I was just recreating what I had in the Bahamas, and it just wasn't the same.

Mother’s Day dinner - restaurant was virtually empty. We tried to order two different bottles of wine from the list - they had neither. When main courses were brought out, apparently our waiter has misfired the orders & one entree was missing for a good 15mins. Getting & paying the check also took ages.

Great brunch. Room is light and airy with fascinating pictures/art. Service was friendly and helpful, and easy-going about organizing our brunch orders, and refilling glasses for bottomless mimosas. Kale salad was tasty - zucchini fries were yummy!

I went to Cleo for lunch and asked for the lunch menu but the waitress told me that the lunch menu was for business lunch (how did she judge whether we were having a business lunch or not? we were dressed in business casual like people work at many companies especially in the technology do) and told me that the portions were really small anyway in the business menu lunch menu. Then I decided to order chicken tandoori for 24 dollars only to learn that the dish includes only 2 skewers of chicken, no rice, no vegetables, nada. The food was just Ok, nothing special and I felt it was a rip off. Mind you I dine in many good, expensive restaurants and happy to pay for special, decadent food but it wasn't the case here.

The service was not good. It took at least 20 min for the drinks. We were comped for the first round but it still was a bad way to start the meal. I had been to Cleo for lunch previously and I think there were more interesting choices and better service. Btw there is no coat check. If they are looking for non hotel guests, they need a coat check. This isn’t LA.

Had been to Cleo at Baha Mar and had amazing experience. Went to celebrate a bday here and the service did not disappoint. Menu was smaller that the one at Baha Mar but food was up to par. The spicy beef cigar rolls are a MUST. Bar scene was on point for a Wednesday night.

From the time we entered the restaurant we were greeted by Kevin Mckenzie who sat us and gave us
his recommendations and favorites. The menu had a good variety and we tried a few appetizers before our main entrees. The food came out in a timely fashion. Presentation, execution and flavor were precise. Outstanding service complemented the entire dining experience. The ambience, decor and music selection completed the evening.We will definitely return with friends and family.

The menu online showed a wide variety of Mediterranean foods and a great drink menu- the menu at the restauarnt was more expensive, had fewer options, and far less Mediterranean food. The food was fine but not worth the high prices, and the menu seemed a bit confused on what type of restaurant it wanted to be (mixture of way too many different cuisines on the menu). The ambiance was also much more corporate than I was expecting for a hotel with a club downstairs - not the best option for a Saturday night dinner. Service, however, was quite good.

Cleo has become one of my neighborhood get together places when I’m on a girls night out. The food is healthy and very shareable. Service is also good and staff is attentive. Consistently delicious!
