Cielo Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews
First time Ive visited since chef Frabrizio left for Florida. We had the tasting menu. We both disliked the salmon and ravioli. Loved the sea bass and my absolute favorite was the squid ink pasta with lobster. The steak needed seasoning. Dessert was ok, but we were stuffed from the other courses. Prosecco was included with the meal. Attentive to our needs with seating and being able to watch the Blues game while we ate. This is my favorite place to bring out of town guests when the patio overlooking the Arch is open. Good service. Wish they would change the bread basket back to the old one with several types of breads.
I treated my husband to dinner here for Valentine's Day! I'm not a fan of being locked into a limited menu, but understood why for the occasion. However, for a four course meal that was pretty much appetizer bites, and average in taste, I was disappointed for the cost. My husband and I were both hungry again before we got home good, and that was after spending $200 for that meal. The service and ambience is excellent!
Menu for which we booked (Tour of Italy) was not available on 2/13 even though it showed on the website and was confirmed by staff.
Valentine's menu offered less choice and omitted many of the items we wanted to eat.
Waitress was not informed or helpful.
None the less, we stayed and ordered a $100 bottle of champagne -- no discount offered.
Manager offered extra dessert but not any of the missing items or a discount on the return visit.
Experience not worthy of the Four Seasons brand.
Valentine's dinner with my fiancé. Overall food and service was excellent, although our salads needed more dressing. Reservations were made with request to sit by the windows (for an awesome view!), and they did not disappoint. The noise level increased as the evening progressed, but will definitely be going back. I would recommend this place for the vibrant atmosphere and fresh, quality menu selections!
Ridiculously overpriced. $192 for dinner for two, without any drinks is a little steep. The food was "fancy" looking, but not great. For example, the short ribs had a ton of fat and grissle still not rendered, and the fish skin was not cooked properly. I've spent half the price, got two drinks and way better food. Would not recommend.
We actually had 3 experiences during the course of our stay: drinks on the patio, dinner and breakfast. The drink experience was disappointing: the server seemed annoyed at life and basically lied about what they had to upcharge me (I asked for a mocha or, if they didn't have chocolate, a latte with Baileys). He brought the latte with Baileys even though the next morning, they magically had mochas on the menu. The service for dinner and breakfast was perfect. The dinner was somewhat disappointing. The toasted ravioli was mediocre, the Caesar salad, basic, but the bolognese good. Overall, go for the view and ambiance but don't expect an amazing meal.
Took my date there for a cooking class, found out it was a cake decorating class once we got there. Was a little disappointed however we still had a great time. Went home with 6 cakes!! Thought the price was a bit high at first but then we were sat down for a dinner which I didn't expect. Definitely worth it. You'll want to make sure which class is happening before you go if that's what you're going for. Overall great experience and well worth it !
This was our first time dining @ Cielo. We had a wonderful time. The view of the city is amazing. Service was excellent. The food was top notch. The staff made us feel so welcome. We will return. Looking forward to eating outside, on the patio, in the spring. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
We found this restaurant on Groupon. Thank you for participating in this endeavor ,living in central Illinois we may not have found you otherwise. We try to go to different restaurants each time we visit St. Louis. We enjoyed our time with you so much we will visit Cielo again.
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.
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.
