Another great Sam Fox restaurant. We had a great time there and the food was fantastic. We had a variety of entrees. Warm Crab appetizer, Cajun Shrimp, Fish and Chips, Lobster Salad, King Crab Legs. My only compliant is you cannot hear yourself think and don't try to have a conversation with the person across from you.!!! Luckily we ate early, and it didn't get load until after 7.

This was my 1st time here - our Server Jacob and his asst. Lennon provided superior service I only received in NYC or San Francisco. The food was delicious and exceeded my exceedingly high expectations. I would highly recommend dining at this place - its well worth it! Enjoy

Service was great. The six of us tasted almost everything on the menu and from the bar including sharing an absinthe around the table. All the eats were delish, small and large plates. Been before, will definitely return.

My girlfriend and I dined at Little Cleo's for New Year's. The service and food were outstanding, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The food was prepared perfectly and I would recommend this restaurant to my friends.

Went here for the New Years Eve Prix Fix meal and it was amazing! Service was great too and our waters were refilled constantly and all the staff were happy to be there and friendly. We will be back for regular menu and probably for happy hour too because there were some awesome specials.

Love that you are in Open Table and love your oysters and and broad selection of them and your hush puppies. Had reservation but didn't have table for four ready and you tried to sit us at a table for six right by door. Crab and butter jar not up to par but bread delicious. Po' boy not up to standard expected fare; would like more remoulade sauce. Slow service with drinks and one fill of water only. We didn't feel as if we had an attentive server and slow to clear. We are locals in neighborhood. We give this feedback in hopes of a long-term relationship with your usually lovely restaurant. Happy New Year!

Great little restaurant! We sat in the semi-open space, overlooking an indoors activity space, a bit noisy and with more picnic than restaurant atmosphere. But fantastic service and great food more than made up for it. Brussel sprouts and tuna tartare were the highlights if the day, loup de mer was superb, bouillabaisse was great. We'll be back!

We both had lobster rolls and they were very good, buttery and full of sweet lobster meat. Cocktails were mixed well and tasted as expected. The star of meal was the chocolate Carmel cake with what tasted like homemade ice cream (I'd go back just for that). I look forward to tasting more of their menu

This is a place for seafood lovers. My daughter and I started with oysters, and appreciated the patience of our waitress in explaining the varieties available. The only thing we ordered that we didn't enjoy was the roasted brussels sprouts, which we thought were too salty.

$1 oysters at happy hour!!! Happy hour deals on beer, bubbly and cocktails. Grilled octopus was great and definitely not a common item on Phoenix menus. The absinthe collection was a nice surprise. 1st visit but will not be our last.

Went for a chef special dinner. Jake hit it out of the park! Best and Freshest seafood in Arizona. Their oyster bar rivals some of the best oyster bars I've eaten at in the Bay Area. Great service from a professional staff. Absinthe drinks are their specialty! Can't say enough about this place!

Attended the Cajun festival. Loved the design of the entire place but food was not great. We ordered the shrimp sausage corn and crab special with Cajun seasonings. Came with cheddar biscuits, hush puppies, sweet tea and little donuts. Our server just seemed off- we had no utensils, our food arrived lukewarm. Asked for a children's menu & they didn't have one...
The place has good potential but to be honest this is not nearly as good as most of Fox's other restaurants. Don't really feel compelled to come back anytime soon. Ended up being a rather expensive meal particularly for the quality.

Great food. The crab was tasty, the biscuits and hushpuppies & beignets were great. Loved the Cajun seafood boil. They offered us lots of food. The shrimp were super, but the kitchen was very hit and miss with deveining the shrimp. Not fun finding veins in the shrimp and having to devein our own shrimp at the table. Other than that, the food was great. We will go back.

Having had good experiences at Little Cleo's on several occasions we wanted to take a friend from out-of-town for dinner. We were seated promptly, welcomed warmly by our waitress, and drinks and starters were ordered. There were no nightly specials, and having come primarily for fish, we ordered while sampling our starters. The frog legs are listed as "crispy" but this was an excuse for over done. The hush-puppies were good and the garlic fries were tasty. We had all ordered the loup de mare as they did not have many fresh fish options. Our waitress returned to tell us they were sold out of the loup de mare and it was only 7:30 and definitely not busy. We ended up ordering the lobster roll, fish and chips and tuna. We were all unimpressed. My husband kept asking if I thought the restaurant had changed ownership as the food had gone downhill that drastically. We each ended up leaving half of our dinners and passing on dessert as it just wasn't great. The next morning we commented on how disappointed we were with our dinners and I'm not sure that we'll return again.

This was my third visit to Little Cleo's. It was the best so far. A group of three of us - we each ordered the small plate frog legs plus 4 additional small plates to share. It was a Tuesday evening and we sat outside so the noise level wasn't too bad. Normally the noise is my main complaint about LC's. Would return, again picking a less popular evening plus sitting outside on the edge of the Yard.

We arrived on time for our reservation and were immediately seated. My 2 guests enjoyed a combination of oysters while I ate the Black Ink Fettucine with Mussels. All were vanquished in no time. We moved on to our main meals of Shrimp, Lobster and Salmon with 2 plates of additional vegetables (Squash and Spinach), All was delish, properly cooked and served. Dessert was just for two of us, one being caramel flavored bread pudding while I opted for the freshly made sorbet. A great flavor and definitely someone's passion - the desserts.
We could hardly leave the table we were so satisfied.
A great seafood restaurant, whose staff have earned their stripes and have it together.
Perfect, will do it again and again.
