I live very close to the (not yet reopened) Cleo in Hollywood. We went very often. This one has good food and our server was very good. The negative part was the hostess (first person we saw) looked very unhappy. She sat us at a table close to the open sliding glass door and as it was cold, we asked to be seated at the back which she did but never once smiled nor did we feel welcome at all. There was a gentleman who walked around seemingly checking on things but also looked stressed and stern. Never once smiled and we felt like we were bothering them by being there. I understand that it’s stressful to have a restaurant, but once on the floor, you have to convey to your customer that they are welcome and that they should spend their evening there- and be happy to return- especially when there are many other options in the neighborhood. I will give them another try but hope that they lighten up and allow their patrons to enjoy their experience.

Lovely Mediterranean restaurant in West Hollywood with healthy food, a friendly atmosphere, and a welcome change from some of the same old culinary experiences in the area! Will definitely be back : )

Great place to share many plates with friends. The food was absolutely delicious and the restaurant decor/ambiance was great. We ordered veggie and seafood dishes, and they were all amazing. Too bad the service was not up to par - the food came out as prepared (but it wasn't dropped off by our waitress). Our waitress didn't circle back for rounds of drinks (we only got our first order of drinks in, we ordered another round and waited so long we had finished our meal!).

Service coming in wasn’t great, booked with a reservation, they scrambled to find us a table when the place was half empty. When sat in a dark area upstairs, we asked if we could sit where we could see each other and was told no, we have 200 guests coming in with reservations.

Not sure what happened to the service at this new location. Old location was 10x better. The new location is also very very small compared to the old one. It gets very busy here, not enough servers. Reservation was at 8:30, we got seated at 8:50pm. Ordered drinks and 5 tapas. The Tapas came before the drinks. Manager was nice enough to comp the drinks, but still.

We were put in a freezing cold bar and our server was super sweet just too busy to give us the full attention. Food is great but was super late on one dish they had to fire it up a second time. Wasnt the best experience. also was charged 2 dollars more for a vodka rocks ...apparently the ice cost 2 bucks.

Warning-Please don’t order the “Moroccan” fried chicken, it has a weird taste! I was told the chicken was white meat, but it wasn’t?! It was dark brown and soaked in grease. 🧐 The Brussels sprouts were tasty, but also very greasy! The food is pricey with small portions. The service was good though. I don’t recommend it!

Loved the old location and food in the previous location in Hollywood. This location is fine but not at all what I expected. I also feel like the food tastes different. I was so disappointed. I have always looked forward to Cleo but no more!

Horrible service. Waiter did not show up for 20 minutes. We were celebrating a birthday and ordered a dessert when the birthday girl was in the restroom. When the waiter returned to take some plates, he completely spoiled the surprise. Very disappointing and unprofessional.

Unfortunately we waited 45 minutes after our reservation and had terrible service. I would have appreciated them calling to tell me our reservation would be later. The manager was really nice and comped a few things on our bill. But overall, the service, the food, the wait, all of it was really disappointing. I used to really like this place but I wont be back.

Service was only average to subpar, though the food was pretty good. I got sick off of the ceviche though, and my boyfriend was treated like a second class citizen. I used to love Cleo. Now I am not sure I will return to any Cleo, even if the Hollywood location dies ever re-open.

We’ve been eating at Cleo at a different venue for a few years and always enjoy the delicious food. We recently ate at the 3rd Street venue in West Hollywood on Christmas evening. Our server was great, friendly and efficient. The drinks arrived and we then ordered our plates of food to share. One order was kebabs which come in threes. All of the other food cane out and was consumed. We added the fried chicken which came out almost immediately. Still no kebabs. We kept asking about them and were told different stories about their whereabouts! We finished the fried chicken and still no kebabs. We finally were offered the desert menu which we ordered. Still no kebabs. They finally arrived and they were complimentary of course. They also comped our desert and coffees as they should have. We took the kebabs to go. We all had a good laugh over the mysterious kebabs, but our poor waiter was clearly frustrated with the kitchen that night. Maybe the kitchen crew were not the regular people due to the holiday. .Regardless, not my problem. Food was good, kitchen crew, bad. Sorry about that. But the manager did take a lot off our check. Thanks for that.

Food is good but very very overpirced. It is a tapas restaurant, so I understand that portions are small but they charge each tapas as if it is a full meal entere! The peopel are very nice, service is good but for the money there are much better places
