Oh boy the view is to die for! The problem is you have to look past the men in the hot tub to see it. The food was good, but I truly expected better. It was just good, not outstanding. For the price, I would probably not return. Maybe on the bar side, not looking at hot tub.

They have outdoor seating on a terrace overlooking the Arch and downtown St Louis and it was a spectacular place to dine. I was less impressed with the restaurant's indoor seating. The food was alright but I was expecting great from a Four Seasons. I was disappointed and feel sure you can find much better Italian food in St Louis. My dining companion thought the same.

Our server was amazing! I can't think of his name but he was so educated on wine and enlightened us on a great bottle of wine! He also recommended the pasta with lobster and tomatoes and I can honestly say.......It is the absolute BEST pasta that I have ever had and I will definitely be back! The staff, from the time we checked in at the front, to the server and the waiter that brought our food out to the waiter that escorted me to the women's restrooms were some of the friendliest waiters that I have ever met. Our waiter even brought us a piece of Gooey butter cake with the chocolate arch with a "Welcome Back" on the plate in chocolate for us to enjoy. I have been to Cielo quite a few times but my boyfriend had never. This is the first time I had the pasta but this is what I will have moving forward!!!! My boyfriend was extremely impressed! I will most definitely be back! Thanks for a wonderful meal and night out!

This restaurant was a real let down. With prices at the level they are, you expect a certain level of value from the service and experience. It was far from there. The food was ordinary at best, the service was well below standard of what I expected and borderline below acceptable, zero flexibility on the menu (per chefs orders we were told). The night we were there they were hosting a very loud happy hour, understood, but no accommodation was attempted to acknowledge and address for us.
The lasagna tasted like it was reheated ...
The lasagna tasted like it was reheated from the previous day. The cheese on top was really hard. The salad was delicious. The service was very poor. I had to ask a couple times for my drink which didn't come until after my meal arrived. Someone from the kitchen brought out both the salad and lasagna. The server didn't come back until it was time for the check.

Food and service were outstanding. We like to eat well when we travel and enjoy dining at fine establishments that also cater to our toddler. The staff was very kind, and all the food was excellent--from the fried ravioli, to the veal milenese, to the tiramisu.

I went here to celebrate my birthday with friends and it was splendid! We seated at a table outside, overlooking the arch and the mini pool/spa and the view was gorgeous. Definitely recommend for special occasions!
We had the lack of lamb, squid ink pasta, grilled tuna, and salmon. All of my friends were satisfied with the food, so they must be good!
However, I do not recommend the toasted ravioli for antipasti. Get the salmon bruschetta instead!

It was a lovely evening in St. Louis and we wanted to dine outdoors. They had a DJ from a prior event which we enjoyed; the view of the Arch was spectacular. The food and wine were particularly delicious with beautiful presentation. It is expensive however but we enjoyed our evening.

The food was wonderful. Compliments to the chef. The service was great. Our waitress had great recommendations for us. We were never rushed. The atmosphere was great - a little dark outside, but we could have chosen to sit inside. The DJ was perfect - not too loud, good music.

Nicole, the waitress who served us could not have been more professional, caring, and attentive. The excellent service confirmed our expectations, and together with the good meal resulted in an all around good experience.

Everything is fabulous about dining on the rooftop EXCEPT for being approached at our table by 6 different employees including the manager. The overkill in service made conversation nearly impossible. Also, I'd prefer that the manager, if she/he MUST stop by the table do so when the patrons aren't actually eating. We were five minutes into our entree when the chatty manager stopped by. Please consider waiting until there isn't any food on the table.
Ridiculous overkill in service.
Also, it appears to be impossible to book a reservation for outside. The conversation while making the res: We'd like to eat outside. CB: it's first come, first serve. Me: ? We just made a res. CB: Yes, but it's first come.
They need to work on their explanation or strategy when taking a res.

This rooftop restaurant has great food and an awesome view of the arch and the river. The service was truly outstanding, our waiter (Tom?) was very courteous and attentive to our needs. Overall our visit to Cielo was an outstanding way to celebrate a birthday. We'll be back!

We stayed overnight at the Four Seasons, so we had a drink at the bar before we went to our room, then we ate there for breakfast the next morning. We got there around closing time at night, but there were still about 25 people there. A lot of them were sitting outside on the patio, which is great for big groups and has a beautiful view of the Arch in downtown St. Louis. The weather was perfect that night to sit outside! The breakfast on Sunday morning was very good, and our waitress was excellent. Prices were OK, we didn't feel like it was too much, especially for a place like the Four Seasons. Overall, it was a very nice place and we would definitely go back again!

We had a wonderful experience there last Friday night! I included a note in my open table reservation about my fiance's promotion and if they could accommodate and goey butter desert. They did not have this on their menu, but made sure to get it for us and write congratulations on it! Our waitress was great and we loved the DJ there that night!! I told all of my friends and we cannot wait to go back. Not to mention the view is amazing.
Thank you Cielo!

The waiter was absolutely terrible. I cannot recall his name but he was awful. He was rude, corrected the pronunciation of menu items in a snobby way that was belittling, wouldn't refill drinks unless we asked him to, had to ask to order food which includes entrees and our desserts. Romina, who was not a waiter but she assisted tables and she was amazing. I tipped her individually a large tip not to be shared with our waiter. The individuals who brought us our food was amazing and the management was nice. The scenery was gorgeous and so was the overall decor of the restaurant. Our waiter who was not new there was the only negative experience throughout the evening. The Octopus appetizer was amazing, along with the Veal chop and lamb chop entrees and the tiramisu and double chocolate desserts were all very good. Let's just say the waiter received a tip larger than he deserved, but the tip was shared and we didn't want the others not to receive anything.

Our server wasn't nice and was gone most of the time. He threw the bread on the table that the pepper fell on the table and he didn't pick it up till he came back around. Didn't ask my husband if he wanted another drink until he was almost done with meal so he didn't want a second. The server didn't speak good English so it was hard to ask his opinion on which drink was better. Overall wasn't a good experience because of the service. This was the second time we have been there. The first time was perfect but because of this service we won't be back. Our date night wasn't a good time.

Disappointing, been here many times and this was not like visit of the past. No bloody mary bar, no half price wines on sunday. Menu changed less focus on breakfast. Had this as a destination for brunch but now will go elsewhere.
Service was fair and not up to four seasons standards. Understand now why reservations were easy and the place was empty.

I took my 10 year old son here for a special one on one dinner with him. We sat outside where the restaurant offers fantastic views of the Arch. The view and the service our waiter Tom provided was really what made this an exceptional experience. Tom did a great job of making my son feel very special. He took his time with us and helped us choose our menu, took a photo of in the area he thought offered the best view of the arch, pointed out the chefs garden to us and encouraged us to explore the rest of the rooftop. The best part was the private tour he gave us of the kitchen and the surprise dessert he had waiting for us at the end of the tour. The food was solid but wouldn't be the reason I would return. The view and the service is what sets Cielo apart in my opion.

My family and I went to Cielo to celebrate my birthday and as a final farewell to St. Louis. We couldn't have picked a better spot! The food, wine, and views were all equally amazing, and the waitstaff was attentive, knowledgeable, but never too formal or stifling. I would definitely recommend the octopus starter, veal, and whatever they're serving as the fish special—we had an incredible salmon. The desserts were to die for, all rounded off with a perfect champagne and wine pairing by the sommelier.

Servers were kind and well-intentioned in trying to right our experience. Food was odd. The pasta was inedible and the risotto not seasonal (roasted apples and fennel in July). Also, we were there for the view and they have large shrubs that block the skyline from some of the tables. Overall, the service was awkward with too many staff members running around and having seemingly intense conversations with each other. They did bring us complementary chocolate strawberries, which was nice. But for a 10th wedding anniversary, we were hoping for a better experience.

Cielo's never disappoints! The service and food is exceptional. I have visited Cielo's numerous times and continue to bring friends, as well as business colleagues. Everyone is always very complimentary and believe it is an exceptional place to dine. The view of the Arch and downtown St.Louis are amazing. On this particular occasion I placed a special request for a friend's birthday and as always Cielo's did a wonderful job at making my friend feel special. An added benefit is the valet parking. Thank you again for a memorable time. I would highly recommend Cielo's.

Cocktails are great. Appetizers are good. The main entree was lacking and it was the Chef's feature. The waitstaff assistants were fantastic. The actual waiter was subpar and I wished his assistants would have been our waiter instead. View is amazing and is suggest going for the view and cocktails.

I'm not saying that fine dining restaurants should cater to vegans, but I wish there were healthier items on the menu. Last time I was here, a vegan menu was available but no longer. I ordered a couple of vegetables but they were loaded with cheese and butter. There was a beet risotto but again that has so much cheese and butter in it. I should have ordered a salad. Again, it is my choice to eat healthy and I don't expect to be catered to. But if you are a vegan, this is not the restaurant for you. I've been told that if you let the chef at nicer restaurants know ahead of time what your eating needs are, they can sometimes create something good. But this was a last minute decision. Next time we will probably just go there for a drink and enjoy the view. That is well worth a visit.

My girlfriend has talked about this place since I relocated to St. Louis. I surprised her with brunch. The ambiance was amazing, the food was GREAT! I had the crabcake and an english muffin. We did not have any cocktails but we will be back to taste a drink or 2.
