We stopped here before a show at Pantages Theatre. Everything was very good.
The Brussel sprouts are a must!!!

I went here for a business outing and absolutely loved it! Great ambiance, delicious food and surprisingly good cocktails! We ordered everything tapas style and loved every dish! The brussel sprouts, in particular, are a must -- so good! Their cocktails are also amazing! I'm usually not a mixed drink kind of girl -- I prefer whiskey neat/on the rocks -- but their sidecar was delicious! If every bar made their sidecar like Cleo, I would have a new drink of choice in the mix!

Classy & Upscale Place. Romantic vibe.

Definitely a good place to take a date. There are plenty of small plates to try out if you feel like sharing. So it's best to come with a big group.

There's valet parking at the hotel too.

I absolutely adore this place!
From the fancy chairs to the painting everything was just made to make a great girls night!
We were seated in the first section of the dinning room but did take a quick peak in the back. The back section was def, more lively with amazing lavender chairs ( I'm obsessed with their chairs! )
It did take a bit of time before the waitress got to us but her suggestions on alcohol made up for it! I asked for a bit of a spice drink and she suggested the :

Vinebury
Absolut Vodka, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Crushed Basil, Cucumber, Serrano, Fresh Lemon- with a tasty sugar rim I licked that cup clean!

What we ordered:
Brussel Sprout Heart with Hazelnut- a bit too oily but it had a good amount of sour and sweet component that you just want to get more.

Mushrooms- unlike any mushrooms I had in awhile, full of flavors and easily can substitute for any meat dishes!

Kale Flatbread
Kale, crème fraîche, garlic oil, Parmesan- our waitress suggested this but it was a bit too cheesy and def nothing to brag about.

Ravioli
Fresh farmer's cheese, brown butter, soft egg, marjoram.- Since it was so dark I didnt realized there was a soft egg in the middle until the server asked if he could break the egg for us - ooyy gooey goodness, that's all i can say!

Zucchini dish came out with three falafal liked balls and yogurt dressing - a bit too sour for my taste but still quite delicious.

We had amazing neighbors who offered us some Watermelon and Feta Salad
Avocado, Spiced Nuts, Cucumber. The watermelon was incredibly refreshing it cleared my palate and left me just in the perfect mood!

Everyone here were great and me and my friend had an amazing time!

Hip and trendy restaurant from SBC group. Food is Moroccan theme . Not bad parking is challenging better park at the parking lot than getting ticket.

This restaurant is gorgeous inside! The only downside is it's rather loud and the tables are pushed too close together. Besides that, the food is great! For veggies, the brussel sprouts are a must order but my favorite was the seasonal mushrooms - wooow! It's sweet, spicy, and tangy. My other favorite food item was the lamb shawarma. Yes, order one per person!

This lovely resto is located in the Redbury Hotel, which has a great, edgy vibe. It's always packed, and the service is nice, but slow. That's the only real downside. There is a huge selection of tapas and entrees to choose from, and the prices range from $6-$25. Drinks are amazing. Went with my best girlfriend and we sampled a bunch of different dishes and we loved the lamb shank special (fall off the shank tender) and the brussel sprouts (loved this enough to get 2 orders). On the other hand, we found the pork belly "kebab" to be totally meh; it was dry and tough to cut, let alone chew.

Cleo is by far one of my most fav restaurants in the neighborhood. I love the romantic, sexy vibe of the restaurant.

Valet parking is $9 with validation and its a great choice for a pre theater dinner spot. Leave the car there and save money on parking because most other lots are $20 and will take you much longer to get in and out of while the service at Redbury is very quick.

The food is always outstanding. I've gone here and gone way out - ordering WAY too much and I've gone and stuck to a few dishes and left completely satisfied.

After dining in last night I knew it was time for me to give up a review for this place. I usually sit in the interior dining room and last night when we were sat in the first dining room, it was something new. At first, I wondered if I liked it as much as the other room and after leaving I realized I really did. It's much more intimate and we had a great corner table for two which was perfect. It's very dimly lit, so get ready to use the light from your phone to read the menu if you aren't familiar with it but if you are going for the romance factor I'd actually suggest requesting this dining area over the other due to it's more intimate nature - the other room is gorgeous but a lot more hustle and bustle with much more noise. If you are going out with girlfriends or a larger more social energetic group that may be your preference over the smaller front room.

The brussel sprouts are amazing! I also really love the Lebaneh with Feta served with fresh bread - soooo good!

The kebabs are ok - I don't eat a lot of meat, but for those who want a little protein - they are a fine choice.

I've had a couple different flat breads - all of them are great. The artichoke and mushroom are two that stand out at the moment. Also, if you order the kabobs they come with a spicy side dip that I like to spread onto the flat breads :) sort of like my own version of a chili paste.

My Mom loves the beet salad, the couscous is great as is a veggie soup I've had.

This is pretty much a win win place with anything you select.

Their Cambria Pinot Noir is also a nice addition to any meal if you prefer red to white.

I have never tried any of their mixed cocktails, they are rumored to be amazing.

You will not be disappointed.

They are also great with getting you in and out if you are in a time crunch to catch a show at Pantages.

Wonderful mediterranean food with reasonable prices. For being an SBE restaurant and in Hollywood, I was very pleasantly surprised at how tasty and lovely Cleo was. Get the hummus and any flatbread, you won't be sorry.
