Cielo Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews

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).

I had never been to Cielo before I took my wife for our anniversary. We lucked out and the weather was beautiful, and our table had a great view of downtown. Unfortunately, that is was the highlight of the evening. We ordered a meat and cheese plate appetizer, which I'm pretty sure included bologna. Not a huge deal, just not what I expected. We both ordered the 7oz fillet, then elected to also get truffle mashed potatoes a'la carte for an additional $5 each. When the food came (approximately 40 minutes after we ordered), the potatoes were cold. Not lukewarm, but cold, below room temperature. Our server had not come back to check on the meal, and luckily another server that passed noticed we were looking for someone and came to the table. We told her about the potatoes, and she said she would have them replaced.
We finished our entrees, and then the replacement potatoes came out about 10 minutes after we had finished our steaks. So, I guess you could say we had truffle mashed potatoes for dessert, because they still charged us for them. Our waters were not filled after the initial pour, and I would say we were there about 90 minutes from the time we were seated.
To top it off, we sat in the dining area. There was a group of 5 to the north of our seats that were not eating (they may have before we arrived), but were clearly drinking quite a bit. I'm certainly not a teetotaler by any means, but they became very loud and raucous over the course of the evening. I think just moving them to a non-dining area would have sufficed, but they were never asked to move.
The views were amazing, no doubt. The views are the only reason I rated it "fair." I can't remember a time that I was more disappointed in a dining experience. For the price of the restaurant, and the reputation of "the Four Seasons" I was really let down. Unfortunately, it was on my anniversary.

I have been a great fan of Cielo, but most times we have been able to sit outside and enjoy the lovely peaceful view of the skyline. On this occasion I took an elderly friend and we sat inside due to the chilly weather. There was a group of eight diners near us who ruined our evening because they were so loud. You'd think we were a Busch stadium as the home team hit a homer every few moments with their shouts and squeals. The ladies' voices were piercing and incessant. It didn't help that the hotel management thinks it's a great idea to turn the music up to force people to shout across the table to be heard. It is an unfortunate trend that restaurants feel it necessary to encourage such a din. For this kind of upscale venue, Cielo should opt for quiet elegance or at least offer a refuge from this noise pollution.

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 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 ...
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.
