    Love the Pasta al Pesto, too bad they don't serve it with pine nuts as they used to do.

    The jazz is great but the food isn't exceptional like everyone says. However for a cool late summer evening the atmosphere is perfect and there's no cover so it's hard to complain

    A bit of a mature (think senior citizens who seem to be the regulars) crowd on Sundays with visitors but half priced drinks make for a good afternoon.

    Cozy place, great band. The food is a bit pricey but hey, you get music for free!

    Great vibe and primo live music, but don't come if you're looking for a quality feed. You'll get a tastier shish kebab from a street vendor.

    Super cute restaurant with great atmosphere, but we were charged for soda refills. Since when is that a thing, Cleopatra?!

    Great service and smooth jazz 💜

    Waited over an hour for music and nothing. Service also didn't help us at all. Hoping it was just an off night.

    Good music. Terrible food.

    Thomas Junker · August 5, 2013

    Happy hour martinis are the best!

    Yummy dirty Martinis and jazz a great combo!

    Carolina · July 23, 2013
  • Nicole H.

    Come for the music, stay for...nothing else. Cleo's attracts some amazing talent but unfortunately the same can't be said for the kitchen and bar.

    Great place for relaxing! Music and drinks

    A Ford · January 20, 2013
  • Stan K.

    Skip the beer on tap because it's crap.

    Stan Killian · August 7, 2012
  • Sarah C.

    Going alone? Sit at the bar. Going with friends? Grab a table. It's all good and it's all worthy. One of the best known jam sessions and open mics anywhere. Best of all: no cover + $10 Minimum.

    Like the creation of Central Park, the effort to acquire the obelisk from Egypt was seen as key to New York's status among the great cities of the world. Thousands attended its erection in 1881.

    The music is great!

    Gamal Alexander · April 22, 2012

    Amazing bland calamari but great music.

    Russ · April 8, 2012

    Unlike most other jazz clubs, Cleo’s has no cover charge–music to our ears! Also, the open-mic night sessions are a fun way to listen to lesser-knowns showing off their pipes or jamming skills. Read more · January 9, 2012

    Stop by and listen to the great jazz music

    Ashley B · September 26, 2011

    Live Jazz is nice.

    Glenn Johnston · September 21, 2011
  • Ari P.

    Fantastic place for dinner, drinks, and jazz. Great happy hour til 730. Get the French, wild passion, or Bellini martinis, and the kofta kebab is excellent.

    Rachael Ray makes her way to Cleopatra's Needle, on the Upper West Side in New York, NY, for a Mediterranean meal and live jazz, on Food Network's $40 a Day. Find more tips at FN Local. Read more

    Clearly chatting quietly in a restaurant is frowned upon by bitchy old women who think their karaoke-esque singing is real jazz.

    Sabrina Martin · July 10, 2011

    Great for live jazz! Read more

    The music here ranges from good to amazing. But the service whether at the bar or at a table is consistently slow when it's anything but empty

  • ellen r.

    It bothers me how the bathrooms and the kichen r so close. The food comes past the toilet on the way to your table. Great music lousy food and presentation. Just drink alot

    On the hill behind the Met, and today, the runners..

    Happy hour is great. A glass of blanc de blanc and a blue moon for 10.50.

    The moussaka is something special.

    Delicious, reasonably priced food and great live jazz. The evening jam sessions rock! Martinis are so-so, but it's a terrific value in an intimate setting. (We hate the downtown crowds.) Read more

    Food is awful, but the jazz is great.
