We were headed to the theater and they were having staff issues and they more then accomadating! they went out of there way to make sure we were on time to the show and that we were able to get our food.
Second visit was better than the first. You guys just keep getting better. The scallop dish and dip tasting are to die for.
Can’t wait to go back.
A wonderful place to go before PPAc. The staff is always aware of time. There is a new menu and the appetizers we got were delicious. I've never had a bad meal here.
Delicious and fresh food
Very accommodating staff
Great wine and cocktail list
Always a great meal!
This Greek girl says “OUTSTANDING!” Reminds me of Yaya ‘s Greek cooking!
Freezing cold when door opens.
Absolutely wonderful food, friendly service and great staff
The service was excellent. My only complaint we ordered the french fries with the entrées and the fries Not hot , almost warm 🤨
Second time here for a pre-PPAC show dinner. Started with (I believe) Patsavouropita, savory cheese pie, which was tasty. For entrees, we had the scallops, also quite good, and the lamb shank--which was possibly the best I've ever had. Delicious, meat falling off the bone. The only disappointment was the pasta that accompanied both the scallops and the lamb shank, as it was underseasoned and just not interesting. Shared baclava for dessert along with a generous pour of ouzo.
We had the dip sampler and the crispy meatballs which were both delicious. Our friends shared the meat sampler, which was very generous in size. Both the eggplant side and the slow roasted carrots were outstanding. The whole stuffed red snapper was nicely cooked, but a bit on the sweet side for me for a savory dish. The server was excellent and very helpful with what was apparently a new menu.
Dip sampler was great spanakopita excellent.
Moussaka was enormous.. a bit bland.
Dandelion greens well done but too bitter for many people.
The food and service were excellent as usual. My wife and I have been to Kleos many times before.
Fabulous authentic Greek food! And Greek wine is the best!
Our party of 4 had a nice meal on Saturday night, but we’ve been several other times and this was not as pleasant as the other meals. The hostess showed us to our table which was crammed in the back, right by the server station, bathrooms, and the swinging door to the kitchen with meals coming out constantly. I looked at the hostess and said, oh no...this will not do at all. I can’t believe there is a 4-top there. She politely said she understood and that she’d seat us somewhere else as soon as possible. So, back to the bar we went.
We waited another 15 minutes or so, and then were seated at a booth. Much better. Our waiter- I wish I could remember his name- he was very blah; didn’t seem happy to be at work at all. Fortunately, the food was yummy! We were celebrating 2 birthdays at our table, and I had put a note on Open Table and the server brought two plates of baklava with candles that was much appreciated. But, he just kind of put them down, no smile, no nothing. Maybe he was having a bad night- but I hope for a more upbeat server next time!
Excellent meal at Kleos! Brought business colleagues for a dinner and everyone was impressed with the food and service. Everyone I bring to Kleos is always happy there!
There are few Greek restaurants in or near Providence, RI so I did not know what to expect. I made an early reservation and learned if you don’t you will not get a table after 7pm. The bar is very nice as well. To my surprise the food was fabulous! HUGE portions, great selections from vegan to foodie to meat and potato fans. You will not be disappointed. The kitchen is slow but what I learned is to be patient because the meal is cooked to perfection. Go early for a leisurely dinner and take home for a delicious dinner at home. New favorite spot in a growing food scene in Providence!
Gyros are always good, but the Pork Belly is amazing! The flavor melts in your mouth!
Food was excellent. Service was disappointing for such a beautiful restaurant. Staff was not responsive in a timely manner nor did the host greet or say goodbye. We got better, friendly customer service from J.R. who was in charge of valet.
Right from when I walked in, I knew that I was going to enjoy my visit at Kleos. I would highly recommend this restaurant! The atmosphere was great. The food was great. The customer service was great. All around 5 stars.
Great meal. Couldn't ask for better. Our server was pleasant and made dinner enjoyable. Helpful suggestions were appreciated.
Amazing food!! We went during the restaurant week to try out some new foods and dishes, and they did not disappoint.
Kleos came up in my search when looking for somewhere new to eat and I tentatively asked my husband if he’d try Greek. We typically stay in our comfort zone. It I wanted to try something new. I couldn’t have been happier. I learned to pronounce some new words and I put trust in the chefs to make something delicious. Will, our waiter, was attentive, he suggested a great drink for me and kept our waters full. Wonderful, wonderful dinner. I’m so glad we tried something new.
Our waiter was super friendly. The food was delicious!
Always a great meal and great atmosphere at Kleo's . It's one of our go to places.
Great! Wonderful food and service.
Food was amazing. Our server was very good to just seemed a little overwhelmed. The noise level was uncomfortable. My partner was lip reading me. Not sure if anything could be done about that though. Food was dynamite so we will be back for sure because we can always conversations at home
Overall the experience was great! The food was absolutely delicious. The restaurant I felt was very warm and was a bit noisy. I had to really lean in to hear my friend speaking.
We had put in appetizers and had our drinks and about 10-15 minutes later our waitress came over to apologize because our appetizers for some reason were not communicated to the kitchen. We hadn’t even noticed the time that had gone by as we were content sipping our drinks and chatting. Appetizers came shortly after. Our water glasses were always full and our main dish was amazing. To make up for the late apps our waitress presented us with a huge piece of baklava on the house! Overall a wonderful visit! Will always recommend and look forward to going back.
Great food! Great decor! Great bartender!! She created a cocktail just for me and it was wonderful.
We were there for dinner on January 30 and the restaurant was not busy- which was very nice. We are return customers because the food is outstanding and the service is excellent. The flavors are so distinct and everything is fresh. I love lamb but I am very picky about where I order it but I will always order the lamb shank here- absolutely delicious. For this dinner, my husband ordered several sides! The lemon potatoes were amazing and even better the next morning when reheated until crispy for breakfast! :) Enjoy!
Great waitress, real food, delicious quartino of retsina
Everything was delicious - seafood stew, fish, moussaka, green beans, the appetizers - the tower of crisp veggies, the plate of dips. The service was perfect - friendly but not intrusive. They even brought us some dessert wine and Greek cookies for dessert!
The food was delicious. And we got great advice on what to choose from our waitress and attentive service, too.
Sat near door and got a cold blast every time someone entered or left
The old Taza site is revamped and very airy and attractive. We sat near a window on a rather mild, early winter evening, and occasionally, the wind came right through. Our waitperson was very good, very amiable, and fairly prompt with requests. Of the three of us, one ordered the Greek lasagna, and was amazed at the size of the dish (or pot). I snatched a taste and agreed. My companion and I both ordered the gyro with terrific fries - large and crisp, and a small but adequate Greek salad - no lettuce, but plenty of cukes and tomatoes that actually did not taste like cardboard at this out of season time. However, the gyro was so heavy on the cumin that I had to take up the waitress' suggestion of more tzatziki to calm that overwhelming ingredient. Almost everyone there was obviously pre-show at PPAC, and staff managed to get us all out on time. I will definitely return and try another dish.
Our first time eating here and it was amazing. Our waitress was attentive, and friendly. We selected 3 appetizers and shared. Next time we look forward to the amazing dinner selections.
Mixed grill was very dry. We each tried a piece n tried the next and all was very dry. We did not complain but brought it to our server’s attention.
We ended with lattes and cappachino with a slice of baklava. We would like to go back, but will not accept dry lamb again.
Great food and service! We’ll be back !
Old friends meeting up for dinner reunion! Great time free desserts on the owners! Great service and atmosphere as always!
Made reservation thru open table and ensured chef knew about husbands severe dairy allergy. Server never got message - they said no open table comment was visible yet I had comment visible when I pulled open table up on my phone. Very limited menu for husband - even potatoes roasted with lemon and olive oil reportedly were pre prepared and had butter. He had wanted pasta with octopus but tomato sauce had dairy too. He ended up with special - lamb chop and raved about it, but very expensive at $38 ( should have asked re price initially).... and the greens ended up going back as some feta in them. We let them know how disappointed we were and the owner gave us free app and salad and sorbet which was very nice and not expected/necessary. My vegan eggplant meal was delicious. Lots of food - both of us brought half a meal gone.
So bottom line - nice ambiance, excellent food but not great or careful with allergies even after they were told in person. Owners tried hard to compensate. My husband said he’d return to try again.
