Cielo Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews
Cielo is one of those restaurants that a ...
Cielo is one of those restaurants that attempts to provide fine dining in an upscale setting. It succeeds in many respects, from a lovely setting, a view of the downtown skyline and fine and attentive service. Unfortunately, while the food was generally good, there were dishes that were uneven. For example, the ravioli was divine, al dente and nicely seasoned. However, the seafood dish, similar to a fish stew in broth, though spicy and the seafood fresh and perfectly cooked, was overly salty. This is just one example. The artichoke appetizer was tasty, but the bread accompanying the meal was not particularly good. For the price and aspiration of what the restaurant was trying to achieve, especially at a Four Season Hotel setting, it was not the greatest value. I did not expect a meal that would knock your socks off, as you might find in a larger city, for which you pay dearly, but I did expect better value. Nevertheless, I will return as the restaurant still provides a reasonably good dining experience in a wonderful setting, but without the proverbial bang for the buck.

purchased a groupon for a cooking class and was advertisted to be French-date night in the Cielo restaurant. Instead ended up on the 6th floor in an industrial kitchen. Pretty disappointing. Won't be doing groupon again.

Fantastic find in St. Louis, in the Four Seasons Hotel. Menu has a variety of choices with an Italian base. The Taste of Italy which allows you to choose 3 or 4 items for your meal is an exception gastronomical delight. The Zuppitta de Mare was over the top with flavors.

Lovely setting and excellent service. Also appreciated the many half orders of pasta that were offered. However, I asked the hostess for a table which would allow the 4 of us to look outside at the night lights and instead she showed us to a booth in the back corner where 2 could sit and look out and the other 2 looked at the wall. The tables around us were jammed with large parties and it was very noisy. The excellent service saved the night though.

Food was wonderful, each item was prepared impeccably. Going on New Year's Day was a disaster. Since they were the only restaurant open in the downtown area, service was awful. Very few reservations caused the restaurant to send servers and staff home and then the restaurant was slammed. The restaurant was very expensive, since it is in the Four Seasons hotel with a wonderful chef, but well worth money. Would go there again, but probably not on a holiday.

This was our first time eating at Cielo Restaurant & Bar and it was for New Year's Eve. My wife and I had reservations at 7:30 PM and we were seated immediately. The menu for the evening was a 7-course meal. The waiter took our drink order and our bottle of wine was served in a timely manner. The 1st course was also served in a timely manner. After the 1st course, this is when the whole dining experience fell apart. It took 1 hour to get the 2nd course. By 11:00 PM, we had only reached the 5th course. This is when we told the manager and waiter that we were leaving. Observations: Our waiter's attention was directed to the larger tables (i.e., 6 people or more). We had also observed that other twosome tables were being served very slow. The larger tables were getting their food more quickly. There was a table of 8 that had been seated next to us approximately 45 minutes after we had been seated. They had been served most of their courses before we received our 4th course. We have no complaints about the food...it was good. However, we're not sure that we would dine at this restaurant again, especially for a special occasion due to their inadequacy of being able to serve a timely meal. We can only assume that they either did not have enough wait staff or kitchen help...or the waiters were more interested in the larger tables for larger tips? We walked away frustrated and perturbed. The meal was to cost $105/person. They ended up charging us $38. Very disappointing Cielo Restaurant! We were so looking forward to having a wonderful dining experience on New Years Eve and to bring in 2017. We would also like to mention that we were guests for 4 nights at the Four Seasons Hotel. The hotel was fabulous.

We booked our reservation at Cielo at least 3 weeks prior to Christmas. We choose Cielo due to great reviews, the rooftop view of the skyline, the 5-course option that included a child's option, and it was open on Christmas. My husband, son, and I frequent fine dining establishments around the world; we looked forward to this event. Cielo called to confirm twice before Christmas. The day of we were running 10 minutes late so I had called to let them know to hold our table; not a problem, our table was ready the hostess said. Upon arrival the hostess said our table was ready. However, as my husband, guest, and son arrived, she asked if it was 4 adults or 3 adults and 1 child (our 7 year old is accustomed to fine dining); I confirmed. The hostess stated she needed to go make sure our table was ready. We waited. We were then seated next to the kitchen door, no skyline view, few other patrons, and next to another table with children. I didn't mind the family but it felt deliberate. The 5-course options for the Christmas dinner sounded great. I asked about the children's course option (which was advertised on the website): the waiter informed us there was no such thing only for the NYE setting. I had read the website multiple times as had my husband, there was a children's option. We shrugged this off. Then the food came; each course got progressively worse. By the 3rd course, we really just wanted to walk out...but we didn't want to embarrass our guest. Our 4th course steak was dry, cold and overdone, the fish was awful, the veggies were microwaved, my son's chicken soup looked like canned soup. The waiters and assistants took our empty cocktail glasses without offering a 2nd drink. We basically threw away $400 on a mediocre (at best) meal. My son walked out saying "the food was really bad...never wants to eat there ever" (also, his opinion of McDonalds). We were embarrassed and apologized profusely to our guest. We are terribly disappointed.

The rolls, stale. The first course showed incredible promise, but those that followed were disappointing. One pasta dish was inedible, a ravioli was okay, but not memorable, the fish was poorly prepared and I finally met a dessert I didn't want to eat. It was dry and the ice cream that was served with it lacked luster. The highlight was the mulled wine.

The food and service were fantastic. Truely an establishment that does it all. Steve our server was beyond exceptional in his recommendation and excellent attention to detail and quick, expert service. If you want a dinner date that is for the memory book make sure to include the both of them.

I rarely use the word "awesome" on a review. But our Thanksgiving experience here was truly awesome. From the moment we got off of the elevator to the moment the valet brought the car around the entire lunch was first class. The service was superlative. The food was excellent. The ambience was second to none.

The ambiance makes this restaurant! It's nicely decorated with the lights of the city beyond the hotel pool. the The food is overpriced for what you get & the staff although nice are not trained for their positions. If you are going to pay these prices, you expect all to be presented correctly or explained how they are taking creative license. A couple of examples...Tiramisu is an Italian dessert made with lady fingers,espresso,kahlua etc. although a nice dessert theirs was not tiramisu but that's what they call it. My husband ordered Sambuca which came without the 3 coffee beans...a place like this should know better. Their squid ink pasta didn't taste of squid or the sea. It's not up to the caliber of Four Seasons restaurants in other cities.

Great service from nice guys, but that didn't make up for food that was ridiculously over priced for what you got. This place does t even look like a restaurant, but rather the back half of a bar. We went with the taste of Italy with wine pairings for each course. Food portions were TINY, undercooked, over salted, and unimpressive. $300 wasted..

I knew going to this place that it would be good but I was not prepared for how delicious it actually was. I was blown away. The rack of lamb and squid ink pasta were out of this world. I can't believe it took me so long to visit this place. I will be back very soon.

I do not know where to start, the food was absolutely the best thing I had ever eaten , they knew me name they where attentive,made my wife feel like a Queen which in turn made me feel like a king, they spoke to me like a person not like a dollar, They cared enough to know it was my and gave us a great dessert ..it was the most expensive place I had even eaten at and I still feel like it was not enough,i would gladly paid more...I recommend this place from the general manager to the wait staff to the ambiance to the food, to the lighting ,to the music if ever their was perfection that was it Thank you so much.

We celebrated a friend's 50th birthday with lunch at Cielo. No one was overly impressed with their food except for the shared dessert (a bananas foster-like ice cream concoction.) Wine by the glass was $13-$15 per glass. Service was excellent - friendly, attentive and observant of the birthday by bringing out a birthday dessert. Best thing about Cielo seems to be the quiet, contemporary setting which is perfect for actual communication - most restaurants these days are insanely loud. This is a great choice if a member of your party needs a quiet setting in order to hear conversation. Otherwise, you can find better food at more reasonable prices at plenty of other restaurants in St Louis. Total bill for lunch for 4 with tip was $210.00 (3 entree salads, one 1/2 size pasta dish, 4 glasses of wine and one shared dessert).
