Cielo Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews
Everything was setup lovely for brunch, the staff attentive, friendly and smiling... The food displayed very nicely... Overall the food was ok... For the price one would expect more than okay... For Four Seasons one would expect exceptional... The grill... Food half cooked (I get it)... However the chef maning the grill should know how long it takes to fully cook chicken, and also ask the question...How would you like your steak? Just courtesy... The restaurant looks great, ambiance, lovely...Food needs some attention... Come on chef!
The food is really unremarkable for a high end place. The pasta was overlooked, is not made fresh, and was heavily salted. The antipasti was mostly a bunch of deep fried and quite bland snacks (risotto balls; meatballs; etc). The tiramisu tasted like it came from a local grocery store. Really disappointing!
My husband and I went to brunch and Cielo for our 10 year anniversary. The atmosphere is very nice, and the view is beautiful. The coffee was terrible but the food was good, though I would consider it very overpriced. You're paying more for the atmosphere.
During our visit, the weather was absolutely beautiful so we opted to sit out on the patio. We got a table not too far from the door where the wait staff comes in and out of the building. Unfortunately, we got to overhear a good bit of complaining / fighting that was going on between some of the waitresses and assistants. I guess this bit of drama was distracting for the staff, so we struggled to get attention for coffee refills, etc. I find this kind of behavior very off-putting and unprofessional, especially considering >$60 a head for brunch.
The staff went above and beyond to help celebrate my mom's 60th birthday, they prepared beautiful and delicious desserts that we were able to share amongst the group. The food was amazing, something for everyone and worth every penny! I would also highly recommend the rooftop yoga, it was relaxing with absolutely no pressure from the instructor - great for newbies or the most experienced fitness level. This was a unique, fun and memorable way for us to celebrate a special milestone!
Unfortunately our meals were not good at all--I got the catch of the day, and my husband got the short ribs. The desert was good and so were the cocktails. The wait staff was very nice and it was fun to sit out on the roof with the view of the arch--this place has a wonderful ambiance, however it was really loud for eating outdoors--all the voices were magnified. Unfortunately, both of us had upset stomachs the next morning (we only had one cocktail each so it definitely wasn't that). Our bill was $200 and overall we were pretty disappointed in the food. Most likely will not go back.
Went for the view from the outdoor bar. Great wait staff asked what occasion we were celebrating (53rd anniversary). Bar manager(?) mentioned the house Manhattan (next time). Hostess gave us a nice secluded table. Restaurant staff was outstanding. A few more choices on the menu would be appreciated. What we did have was very well prepared and served. Surprise dessert (House-made Gooey Butter Cake) was most appreciated, especially with personalized greeting in drizzled chocolate. A great evening and we'll be back!
Location on the roof of the Four Seasons was spectacular. Covered seating kept us out of direct sun, but be aware some tables are right near the pool/hot tub so there may be some folks sloshing their way through the dining area if you sit outside. Food was plentiful, fresh and really delicious. The staff was discrete, professional and very polite. It was a great brunch and we will be sure to come back.
We came in for brunch. Our server Aaron (Erin) was fantastic! Very attentive and answered all our questions. All the staff were helpful and friendly. We came in a few times and sat at the bar. On our first night (friday 09/01/17) bob (I think), big guy behind the bar gave us a fantastic list of places to visit and it was a great way to get a local feel. I live in Nashville and that quality of service and atmosphere with the amazing food would go very well here. Thank you!! We will be back soon! Sarah & EJ
We celebrated our anniversary 3 days ago at Cielo. We booked the Chefs Table meal. Chef Michael is an absolute culinary genius. His pallet and creativity made for a meal to remember. My husband and I literally fly and eat all across the world and this was by far one of the best experiences we've had. The staff was friendly, accommodating to my husband's allergies and the chef created our menu as we ate. It was fresh dishes with three freshest of ingredients and meats. We will be back!
This is the second time in 4 days that I are here. This meal was much better. The taste if Italy. The night manager Michael stopped by and I told him him of the subpar experience two nights before. I was not looking for any comps but to let him be informed. Better this time.
Went on Sunday but didn't know that a brunch buffet was the only thing available. We were not able to order off of a menu. I am not a fan of buffets but the the venue is incredible. Would not return for Sunday brunch buffet but would on another day for menu service.
I have eaten here a number of times. I had the chefs soecial veal and was not stisfied. I would expect a much better meal with flavor from a Four Seasons restaraunt. Staff was pleasant and on point. Scallop appetizer was good but main course needed some work. I should have tried the seafood raw bar that was available near my table. The attendant was very personable. Food just needed a little more work.
We were excited to try this restaurant on our one night in St. Louis but ended up being very disappointed. The risotto was undercooked and so salty that it was inedible. The brussel sprouts were overcooked. Even the truffle fries weren't good. The service was extremely slow and it ended up taking an hour and a half to get our food. Maybe the restaurant was just having an off night. The view of the arch was great, but that certainly wasn't enough to save this experience.
The space the restaurant occupies is gorgeous, mainly because of the large outdoor areas overlooking the river and city. Drinks were great. Service was great at the bar side and "ok" at dinner (we were apparently competing with a large party. The server did apologize once). The main complaint was the short rib entree. Is was the smallest entree I've ever been served! I've had appetizers that were larger. Salad and desert were great (and the short rib was great too. Both bites...). I might come again because of the overall experience. But they'd only get one more chance on portion size
Quite honestly everything was okay, but not the experience I was expecting out of a Four Seasons property. The BBQ outside station just didn't fit into my expectation for a carving station . I guess I was expecting a more elaborate setting even for a brunch. We enjoy having Brunch at elegant properties on vacation and even at our home city for special occasions . It was nice but we wont be coming back anytime soon.
This was our first visit to Cielo. We had a cocktail on the open roof deck, followed by dinner inside. The view is spectacular, with the St. Louis Arch "next door". The service was impeccable, and not stuffy. The dining room and bar area are very stylish and comfortable. Our server was attentive, but didn't hover. He served us with a quiet proficiency. The food was very good. We enjoyed every course, and my husband and I especially enjoyed the Caesar Salad. It was authentic in flavor, and they didn't try to add their special flavor or ingredient to it. It was just Caesar Salad as we expected. We will certainly go back again in the future when visiting St. Louis.
I have thought long and hard about this review! I have been in the industry for 25 years and I give every restaurant a pass for an off night ! We when jumped in our cars everyone has the same response.. NEVER AGAIN.,!
To start the evening the appetizers were amazing. The server was kind friendly and made our evening . She returned after appetizer to tell us the fish that kitchen quoted her to have for the evening was no longer available or NEVER available. So then was 20 minutes after we ordered our entrées. The ball headed manager appeared and try to sell us on the next fish that we had zero interest in. So I asked can we have scallops seared with maybe a nice light mushroom sauce over the top. He said of course. Well when that came out they had mushrooms not 1 of 2 entrerd, so we waited for ALL THE ENTTERD YO BE PERFECTED. (We should of left) . For the extraordinary price we paid the scallops were disappointing at best! I blame the The manager for this mistake because he is the one that took the order and charged us for two scallop entrées when we asked him to split the scallop entrées . Our family makes it a point of eating and every fine dining restaurant this city has to offer. We make an evening of it and this evening was a one star because I don't think I can review a zero star . Which is a shame because the venue is absolutely amazing. Appetizers were amazing and so with cocktails. I suggest after that you get in your car and you dine elsewhere in St. Louis.
Recently my manager eas married and decided to entertain her wedding party at ceili. They had the same experience if not worse. And when I announce this at my job to other servers they raised their hands and said oh my god that has to be the worst food in St. Louis! And that is a shame because it was one of our favorite places to go and the most beautiful spa and Cocktails and appetizers are worth the visit!!! Please move onto another restaurant from there!
Family get-together. The scenery was awesome but I told them it was authentic Italian...the menu is so over-the-top fancy, there's NOT one chicken entree or regular ol' pasta dish??? Completely disappointing. Everything else was great. Don't go there hungry. I ordered the prawns. The beans that came with this dish were so tough they were obviously a garnish. I couldn't get past the attached heads. Nope. Not for me.
The service was horrible. It took 45 minutes after seating before our cocktail, wine, and bread basket were all brought to the table. The prawn dish was gritty and gross. The gentleman at the table next to us ordered the same dish, and based on his facial expression just after he tasted it, we knew his was just as horrible. We asked how he liked his. He responded that the prawns were... you guessed it... gritty! Such a shame the rooftop restaurant at the Four Seasons is this one. We spent 2+ hours dining - well actually 1.5 hours were spent waiting and wishing we had reservations elsewhere.
We were celebrating a birthday and also trying the St. Louis Downtown Restaurant Week menu.
The hostess was very pleasant and our servers were very friendly. Our waitress was a great disappointment. For a five star hotel, we received three star hotel service at best.
We love the ambiance and the menu so that made the evening worth it.
We took advantage of Downtown Restaurant week on Tuesday evening. Reservation was booked at 7:45pm, not an early busy time. We did not sit until after 8. Throughout the evening our waiter changed several times. There was at least 30 minutes in between sitting and being asked if we wanted a drink. After we finally got a drink it was many minutes before we were asked to order. The salad came out, but it was 45 minutes or more before our main course came out and a waiter said it was because the chef did not like the was the plate was plated. My dinner - the Seafood offering was 2 shrimp, 3 heads, but 2 shrimp bodies. It was tasty, but I did not think it was to be tapas.
Must say the gelato was not gelato, it was vanilla ice cream with a tremendous amount of whipped cream.
We have taken advantage of Downtown Restaurant Week at Cielo several times and we raved to our friends about the wonderful food, but this was certainly a disappointment.
Lovely evening. Servers were and efficient. Loved seeing the chef harvest herbs from the outdoor container gardens!! There's some concern about outside dining being near a busy pool. Take that into consideration when booking your table. Need intimate dining? Stay inside. Casual? Head to the patio. Great food!
This place exceeded every expectation I had! The service was fast and everyone from the host, to the server, to the bartenders were very friendly and helpful for our first visit. The view was beautiful and it was an overal fantastic experience! I would highly recommend this place for any special occasion or date night!
