While the food was spectacular , the service was horrible. We had a reservation here for the first time. We were very dressed up and was seated at this tiny table that I would never classify as a dinner table. We then requested for another table. The host then leaves says she’s going to return and does not do that. We had to chase after her. Finally she says , sit anywhere you want so we did that. Then it took forever to get a server to come over and then they take our drink order but then we were given no menus. So then we had to flag another server for the menu. It took forever by the time we ordered and actually had dinner. The food was the only thing that made up for the experience . Very disappointing. If I were to go again, I would not recommend the location on 3rd st. I would go to Hollywood.

They ruined my birthday dinner. The service was so terrible. They did not bring out the food with the sides that it came with and left half the order off. We sat for three hours and still everything came out wrong. The manager half way through sent us out a complimentary bottle of champagne but even so they botched the rest of dinner. In the end, he was so embarrassed he comped the entire bill. I appreciated that but still nevertheless with so many restaurants in LA, please do not choose Cleo for any special occasions. You will most likely be disappointed.

We went on a double date and shared lots of small plates. The food was excellent. The service wasn’t up to standard - our water was never refilled and we weren’t warned about last call on drinks. It seemed our waitress might have been new to waiting tables or perhaps just a little checked out.

The ambiance of this place is a lot better than the other location; I thought that place’s decor was over the top and tacky.

Not impressed. This place used to be the Churchill and was so much more fun, lively, and welcoming. Now the tables are so close together, the service is horrible. A $16 drink was served to us in a glass the size of a shot glass. Ridiculously overpriced, save yourself time and money.

The food is always amazing. Hollywood location was great but now it's so close to home. The artichoke hummus, babaganoush, Greek salad and lebaneh never disappoint. Also recommend the tandoori chicken and saffron chicken.

Cleo is not what it was in the past since they have changed their menu. I’ve been to the Miami Cleo and this location in the last two months and chain wide they’re the same. The ambiance is lacking, food is not great anymore and I don’t think this restaurant chain will be in business in the next three years! Would no longer recommend!!!!

We made a reservation only to be told the owner of SBE was coming and couldn’t have our table. Very rude greeting and I wouldn’t recommend this place due to this shady behavior.

The only thing I would suggest is to have the same menu options as the other locations. Especially when the vine location is closed.

Food was great as usual, noise level too loud. Service was excellent. Zack was a great waiter.
I prefer the ambience and decor of Cleo's at The Redbury on Vine.

They sat us right away - the hostess was very accommodating when i requested another table than the one she walked us to, which we really appreciated. We brought friends that had never been to the restaurant before and wanted them to have the best experience. Also, the manager that was on duty (can't remember his name but he's from Boston) - not only remembered meeting us the last time we dined there, but he also sent over 2 appetizers on the house and we like them so much we ordered more! Also, he was very knowledgeable about the wine and referred a bottle from the menu that we absolutely loved. Our guests loved the dinner, the place and the ambiance, so it was a win win. Thanks!

One of the worst meals I’ve ever had. The food ranged between tasteless and foul. The chicken tangine was served almost raw the first time and wretched the second time. I strongly urge others to stay away.

My newly wife and I are huge foodies and love trying new places. I was so excited to take her the the New Cleo on Thrid st. Once we got there the host told us we could sit in the bar area on a high top table because they have to many large parties coming to be seated anywhere else in the dinning room, (mind you we were on time with a reservation), then she just pointed and left us standing there. So I proceeded to tell her this a date for my wife there are tables available right there in front of us in the dinning room can we please sit there. With a snappy tone she said yes.
Then we order from Stacy (who was Awesome with her service) a few taps style plates. First they all came out one by one which we didn’t like but we’re ok with because we were hungry, the second and third item was supper cold (Rice and Mini lamb sliders) so I asked the bus boy to take them back and redo, they came out with our 3rd and 4th item and were still cold. So I ask to speak with a manager, Eian came over , he was very nice, understanding and resolved our issues. Our overall experience was not cool. The downtown Cleo is nicer and staff / food was great.
