Little Cleo's Ratings and Reviews

We had a great time at Little Cleo's. The majority of the party ordered from their Summer Menu which consisted of a 4-cours meal for $35 which ended up being a great value. Service was 4 out of 5 stars due the majority of our group having to remind our waitress for refills. Other than that, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was very fun.

It was our first time to this restaurant. It won't be out last. Our server, Sid, made great recommendations and gave us great service. The oysters were fresh and ice cold. Our entrees were amazing. And the sticky toffee dessert was great.

The drink service was a bit on the slow side. Oyster selection was very good. The appetizer frog legs were coated too heavy with the sweet hot sauce and tasted like native's honey hot wings. The mussels were fantastic and the summer special was a great value. Ended the dinner with the lemon dessert which was tasty. Overall, good food, good value. A bit on the noisy side so if your looking for romantic, not the place.

Excellent & patient staff on a Thurs. nite party included a 3 year old and a 18 month. The very professional staff were perfect dealing with what children do to a table, thus allowing us adults to enjoy the wonderful food.

Loved this spot! I enjoyed the Summer Bites menu and was not disappointed. The sturgeon bacon and eggs was to die for! And their oysters are top notch! I also enjoyed a unique handcrafted dirty martini with both gin and vodka which was a real treat! I will definitely be back!

First time at Little Cleo's, chosen as the setting for a rare night out with my love. She's less adventurous and the menu unfamiliar, but was very pleased with her cajun shrimp. I chose the "Summer Bites" 4 course meal - for only $35 - the star of which tuna, prepared rare. Delicious, as was the remarkably fresh and fruity tasting lemon icebox pie. Amazing meal, vibrant, bright atmosphere and cheery, staff, dressed neatly in a preppy 50's theme. Complimentary, and speedy, valet ( at The Yard ) saved us a walk in the summer heat. Strongly recommend.

The food was absolutely delicious; vegetable sides were fresh, delicately seasoned and we could have made a meal of them alone. The jar of butter and king crab meat with crusty bread chunks were like ambrosia. The shrimp po' boy -- not close to New Orleans -- .
Seating is "tight" with not many tables, but lots of counter seating. Definitely recommend a reservation. Parking is valet and BUSY.

We have been here several times. We had to dine early as we had Theater tkts. The restaurant only had a couple tables occupied and 2 people at the bar. For some reason, the music was so loud that it made the experience unpleasant. Between the tiled walls and glass the sound just vibrates. Dissappointing experience, food was consistently good as the service.
! Great food! Waiting staff awesome!
Go glad we celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary here! They placed a dozen red roses on our table which was a delight! Waiting staff were awesome! Food..... Delicious!! Unique flavors that were delicious!
Overall a memorable evening and looking forward to returning.
Great oysters and chowder
The Virginia oysters were yummy and the New England clam chowder was the best I have ever had. However the mussels were the smallest and driest I had ever had. But the squid ink pasta with them was delicious. My husband had the shrimp po'boy which was light on the shrimp and heavy on the dressing and lettuce.
Date with the hubby
Adventure, intrigue, surprises. We ordered a little bit of everything and it was all good. Our waitress was knowledgeable and made recommendations when asked. When I ventured off the menu she was more than happy to ask the kitchen to accommodate my request.

Hard-to-find spot tucked in a small space at the back of The Yard. Our server was very helpful with our questions about the menu, including recommending wine for my wife and oysters. We got six Chef's Creek oysters, crispy frog legs, and clam chowder to share. All very good, but the frog legs were transcendent. Perfect flavor and texture. For mains, I got the lobster roll and my wife got mussels with squid ink pasta. Mine was just a perfect version of a classic. I liked my wife's pasta more than she did; she said it was good, but I think the squid ink flavor bumped her a little. Overall, I can't wait to go back.
Little Cleo's is definitely one of my boyfriend and I's top 10 favorite restaurant's to go to. The food is unique and delicious. We have never had a bad experience. The only thing we wish is they would bring back the beignets! I have made so many request for this. We still don't understand why they took it off the menu and replaced them with non fitting desert's for the restaurants theme... Overall still a favorite of our's and we will be long term customers.

Although most of the food was good - the device was slow and the course did not come out all at once- or even close good would have been cold by the time the rest of party was served. They blamed the kitchen for desert not being hot even tho we order desert with the Neal 2.5 hours before it was served and it was still cold and under cooked. We did get a person who stopped by to say we were right but really did nothing for us - too many good place to eat to go back

Good food, but painfully slow. Our dinner took 2 hours which is ridiculous. We have been here many times, and we have never experienced this long of a wait. Somebody dropped the ball here. Either they were short staffed, or just not on their game tonight. The fact that it is restaurant week, should not make it worse, but better because the menu is abbreviated. Love the food, but 2 hours is way to long.

This was my first visit. I loved the food and the upbeat atmosphere. Great concept in design. The service staff waits on you like royalty. The menu is unique. I had the frog legs that were delicious. I will definitely return and take friends with me.

Attended the crab boil celebration. Delicious, fun, Lou's, great music, raccoons fun. Highly recommend.
It's not in plain sight from the street; you have to go behind the building to find it. Worth the money coloration.

Went for a special occasion and arranged for a rose to be at our places. They helped and pulled it off perfectly. Excellent seafood in imaginative servings. King Crab in butter served in a mason jar with garlic toast. Sounds crazy but soooo good. The service is a little over the top. They check with you a bit too often but their intentions are good. Go there!
We had a wonderful Mother's Day brunch at Little Cleo's. The patio seating was beautiful and the food was delicious. Service was a little slow, but we weren't in any hurry and the server was very sweet, so it was fine. Kind of spendy, so just a place for special occasions for this family, but lovely experience.

This is a great place that I think gets overlooked at the Yard. The food is really, really good. On several different visits, the food has been consistently fresh, well seasoned, and on point. I would recommend Little Cleo's! On this particular night, we happened to sit next to a very loud table, though the restaurant was not necessarily noisy. The service was ok- our server wanted to take our order about 30 seconds after we sat down, and we hadn't looked at the menu at all. She then disappeared for a very lengthy amount of time. Someone else had noticed we were waiting a long time and took our drink orders. The menu us a bit pricey, especially the main/ larger dishes, but the quality and freshness is there. The ambience is refined casual. Give this place a try if you're craving seafood, the food will be great!
