Let me start by saying the food is amazing- the hostess was a witch - offered to get us drinks then never did, made us wait 30 minutes when we had a reservation and would not give us a table whose reservation was late. The manager had to set up a table. The service was slow- but if you want... More

Friends took me to Little Cleo's and what a happening in there yard complex in Phoenix. Little Cleo's was an oasis of fine seafood, The hush puppies were the best I have ever sampled. Very good clam chowder served piping hot. The fish & chips were terrific. Good service.The raw bar also looked good.

We really enjoyed Little Cleo's from the ambiance to service to the food and drinks. My wife started with the kale salad and I had the King Crab salad (sans the crab). Both were fantastic. I went without the crab because we were having the Little Cleo's Shellfish Supreme platter to share as a main course. I also ordered the... More

East and West coast oysters, Bouillabaisse and loop de mar--all excellent. Nice small plates like tuna tartare and corn hush puppies. Will go back.

My wife and I ate here on a Wednesday night and just loved it. It's in a building shared by a couple of other restaurants/bars and it's pretty chaotic until you get inside this restaurant. Once inside though, it's fantastic. Kind of different. A long oyster bar with the main kitchen open behind it. Lots of white tile - felt... More

It was a Wednesday night and hopping in the Culinary Dropout at The Yard where we had reservations. We were a few minutes early and were asked to wait for our table so we decided to have a look see and we happened upon a quiet little place next door, Little Cleos. Dan, the manager noticed us and came out... More

This place is a little difficult to find. It's tucked in and behind a large noisy place called The Yard. Go to the valet parking for that. Because of its location in The Yard, it is pretty noisy. The food we had was excellent. We shared an order of sishito peppers, a lobster roll and the grilled tuna. There is... More

As a New Englander, I was hesitant to order seafood in AZ, but was assured that it was flown in fresh daily. Gotta tell you, the lobster roll was to die for!!! It was accompanied by very good cole slaw and preceded by excellent clam chowder. They called it New England clam chowder, but with the addition of bacon, it... More

We made reservations for 6:00 on a Friday evening. We did not know that most of the dinning was outside. They had plenty of heaters but it was a windy evening so there were times in which the heaters were not enough. We arrive at 5:45, was seated right away but it was 5-10 min before a server showed up... More

Quaint and authentic fresh seafood restaurant! Our group hit the happy hour specials which included one dollar oysters on the half shell and shrimp with a very tangy and rich sauce. Also ordered the king crab in a jar with warm butter and toasted bread. The service was as outstanding as the food! Highly recommend!

Little Cleo's, named after the iconic fishing lure is located at The Yard - a unique, neighborhood-inspired development project. When you step inside Little Cleo's, you've discovered a hidden coastal gem in the heart of a Central Phoenix neighborhood. This small, intimate restaurant radiates ease with a dash of vintage 40's style, while offering an assortment of fresh ocean fare. Seafood served fresh daily, such as Loup de Mer, Pacific white sea bass, warm truffle butter jars with crab and an array of succulent oysters.
