One of my favorite Providence restaurants. This was my second visit and both experiences were superb. A creative, interesting menu, impeccable service in a beautiful setting. Would highly recommend.

My wife and daughter went to this restaurant before a show at PPAC because it was the only restaurant they could get into and they loved it. They came home that night and made a reservation for this past weekends show and loved it again.

Great food and service! We came for restaurant week and all left with leftovers. The best Greek food I’ve had since I returned from my Athens trip! The front door constantly opening was unfortunately exceptionally cold and was very distracting. I would definitely recommend a second entryway door if possible...

Definitely worth the drive. This cozy Greek find is authentic yummy and a great find. Our waitress was pleasant and frequented our table. Our food was fresh and just what we wanted. Highly recommend the grilled octopus and the smelt. The grape leaves were also a tasty treat. I had the villa valeria a very refreshing drink.

Went to Kleos last week on the night we had tickets to a show at PPAC. It is conveniently located. We had 5:45 reservations and the show was at 7:30. Once we got seated and menus in hand (which surprisingly took more time than expected), they were mindful of our evening plans, and food and service was efficient. I had a glass of a greek chardonnay which was tasty, and my husband had their version of an old fashion which was also very good with they're own homemade cherries. They served complementary bread and olive oil. The olive oil was yummy, the bread could have been so much better. We had the dip sampler which was julienned cucumber spears and grilled pita wedges with 6 different dips. our favorites were the sweet potato hummus (delish!), the spiced whipped feta, and the Avocado tsatziki. The other three (fish roe, eggplant, and greek hummus) were only okay. We split two entrees: the deboned Bronzino was delicious, tender, tasty and melted in your mouth. We ordered a side of lemony potatoes to go with and those were also good. The Pastitsio was disappointing, the bottom part of it was way too tangy, and the bechamel sauce on the top was fairly flavorless. I expected better! We'll probably try again, but we certainly won't feel the need to rush back.

This restaurant was a big disappointment!While the interior is appealing, we sat at a table for four against the window; the draft from the door constantly opening was at times unbearable. We all ordered from The Restaurant Week Menu. The Greek Salads came in a small bowl with tomatoes so hard you could barely cut them. We ordered a Meze Tasting Plate which came with a few Pita Triangles!!!! For 14$ My Husband had The Pork Belly’ Which were fried greasy and unappetizing. To add to this, the Mixed Drinks were a big disappointment. We will never go back

I ordered the wrong thing. The branzino fish was filleted but still has MANY bones so I could not eat it.
Salad and saganaki were very good. Service was very nice and attentive. I will go again and try something different.

I was excited to eat at Kleo's because it offers a diff.erent menu from the Italian-leaning Providence options. However, I found the experience to be a let down. 1st - ambiance - indoors: Greek comfort, but be warned, window seats come with a view of a dog park where people bring their dogs to do their "business" while you are dining (not appetizing). 2nd-food: the best thing was the dip tasting appetizer, 6 very different dips, each one very tasty, which comes with warm, yummy pita slices - but only enough to eat half the dips served (and we maximized the dip/pita ratio). The greek salad was fresh, but lacked any seasoning (even my BF, with his non discriminating palate, commented that he wish there was some salt on the table to add to the dish). We both had the lamb chop special, they were good. They were served with lemon potatoes (VERY lemony), cooked dandelion greens with tomatoes (watery, not drained well and IMO ruined the other items on the plate by making them soggy) and a sundried tomato/greek yogurt ball (which tasted like neither). Lastly, the service - our waiter was pleasant, but struggled to answer the few questions we had about some of the menu items..stating he had been away for a week and items had changed and he didn't know what they were. We finally got the menu items identified, but I think the servers should know what they are serving. If I were to go back, it would be to sit at the bar and enjoy a drink with the dips and ask for extra pita in advance!

As a Greek American, I am happy to say that the food was very authentic. The bronzino was the best thing on the table. Cold dip platter also very good. Only complaint is that most of the food was too salty ex, Pastichio, Moussaka. If the chef could cut back on the salt, it would have been perfect. Great drinks. Good prices.

The food was outstanding (especially the lamb shank). The ambiance was lively if a bit cozy. Our only major issue was with the service, which was inattentive, acted harried, and was overall ambivalent to the point of acting uncaring toward his tables. Worse, he openly complained that the host was "too new and didn't know what he was doing" by inadvertently assigning other servers to his section. It wasn't just us - the table next to us requested the check and that their entrees be wrapped up as soon as they arrived. They were sick of being ignored. The couple in the next table were obviously frustrated by the situation as well.

Be careful Kleos - you have a good thing here. Don't ruin it with subpar staffing.

My wife and I had dinner at Kleos before a show at PPAC. Dinner before a show can be a bit problematic at an untried restaurant as one doesn't know what to expect in terms of plating the food. We shouldn't have been concerned. We ate at the bar, let the bartender know our schedule and everything worked perfectly. We loved it! My wife had the gyro and I had lemon, sage lamb chops over dandelion greens. Cooked perfectly and wonderful.

The ambience is casual Greek taverna with an urban twist. Very pleasant.

Highly recommended.

First time at Kleo's before a show at PPAC and we were given a window seat (great for people-watching). It's pretty and fresh inside. Menu is not expansive but contains a nice variety of Greek dishes (some with American comparisons such as the Greek lasagna). Food was excellent. Staff friendly and attentive.
