    A lovely restaurant with wonderful service. Interesting menu. The only negative was my eggs were not cooked well and I ordered them well done. Conveniently located for those friends who came to NYC from the 'burbs. Will definitely go back again.

    Very disappointed in the service. there was only one waitress managing the entire restaurant during peak business hours. The hostess was rude and unhelpful. She attempted to place the order for the waitress but the waitress had to still come and check in on what we ordered (which I appreciated to ensure nothing was mistaken). The food was delicious although I believe they also over charged me for one item, but I didn’t make a fuss. They were very accommodating when my friend had to suddenly leave and they packaged it up as a to go item however they tried clearing food before we were even done (and not because the restaurant was busy) I’ve been to this restaurant many times and the service is always terrible. They could really improve there

    Don't offer bottomless brunch if you can't handle it. What comes with the territory?: parties greater than 6 and some noise. Part of the reason we decided to book our party here was based off the review: a brunch spot with a lively atmosphere (there were comments on yelp from other brunchers who enjoyed the lively environment and loud music). To our surprise, we arrived to an empty restaurant. We were a lively bunch, but that's what we expected from a NYC bottomless brunch on a Saturday afternoon. Clearly, we were misguided. We were told to leave by the hostess post being charged for gratuity (our 2hr time slot had just ended). No one was out of control or causing a scene. It's fine if that's not the aesthetic the restaurant is going for, but they should do a better job of communicating it and not having bottomless ‍. Food was good and a service was fine minus the hostess.

    The business lunch special was well priced and the food was good. Server was too busy with her smart phone to pay attention to the customers. Delegated work to others, didn't keep water filled, missed opportunities like if I ordered the lamb burger without the bun, maybe I didn't want croutons in my salad or french fries.

    I was ready to give the restaurant 5 stars BUT at the END of the meal, I was told that not only was bottomless drinks $25 instead of the advertised $22, but it was also 1.5 hours instead of 2. This blatant misrepresentation and false advertising gave me a horrible impression and I will not be returning. REPRINT YOUR MENUS

    Party of 11 able to eat from the regular menu which was a huge plus. Food was delicious, good quality. Decent portions. The service was a little slow. At one point it was taking so long for drinks we timed how long it would take the drinks to come from time of order to the table and it was 21 minutes. Pretty long wait for them but the drinks were good! The only real turnoff was receiving a text from the hostess asking if we were still coming for our 6:15 reservation because they have a large party coming in right after us at 8pm. That was not necessary because how is our party of 11 going to be finished by 8pm. They ultimately never mentioned it when we got there and didn’t rush us so I’m not sure why the text was necessary to send. It could have been avoided.

    It's like an upscale coffee shop off the lobby of the Mondrian. I thought the front area was fun but was very bright. We requested to sit in the back room. No problem. The food was delicious. I had the homemade hash and rosemary potatoes and I drizzled a little hollandaise over it. I wasn't hungry into the night. My friend had the smoked salmon benedict and she enjoyed it. There were many options on the menu. It was Sunday brunch but we could have ordered from the breakfast or lunch menu also. I would go back just for the hash.

    We went a pulsd so it was reasonably priced. However the appetizers were too small for $20 a dish and the sauce for the rib eye steak was way too too salty. Dessert was tasty. However, it doesn't like the team communicates and I had to have the upcharges corrected and I find it wrong to add on 20% tip automatically for a party of 4. Tip is always supposed to be at the consumer's discretion, not forced. It was not stated anywhere on the menu or in the fine print. That may be the reason we're never returning.

    Although I had had a great experience at the Cleo in LA, I was reticent to try this one (in NY) because of some mixed reviews. However, everything was EXCELLENT. Food, service, ambiance, all A+. Definitely my new neighborhood favorite, so glad I gave it a try.

    Got a Pulsd deal dinner for 2 for $79 which included 1 appetizer, 2 entrees, 1 dessert, and a bottle of wine. The service was great but the food fell short of expectations. We paid an up charge to get branzino and also and upcharge for the ribeye. Ask for medium and came medium well. It was dry and devoid of flavors. The dessert was a chocolate mousse with blueberry, that too was disappointing. However, the lamb shawarmas was excellent. The fried cauliflower was great as well but it could have been better if there was some sauce to go with it.

    Cleo is a wonderful choice for brunch. The food is incredibly delicious and the drinks are flavorful. This is the only brunch I know that offers Aperol Spritz, alongside the traditional mimosas or bellinis. It is a very intimate setting and the service is pretty good, though there may be some delays with refills because of how busy it is.

    We took friends from out of town to Brunch. The offerings were good, but overpriced. The server got several orders wrong and did not know the difference between a cappuccino and a latte, both insanely expensive. The draw here seems to be the bottomless mimosas: we did not partake. I had heard that the brunch here was good, and I was disappointed. The avocado Benedict I ordered was on a soggy muffin. Fruit plates looked nice. Music was too loud.

    Mediterranean flavor explosion. Hummus and zucchini chips were fantastic. Lamb shawarma was so tender and full of flavors. Chitarra pasta and Skirt steak kebabs were amazing. Best Brussels sprouts we’ve ever had. Service was attentive and friendly. Again flavors were amazing. Hats off to the Chef!

    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 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.
