Cielo Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews
Everything is fabulous about dining on t ...
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.

We dined here for breakfast and sat outside. While it was a cool morning, it was refreshing to sip coffee and look out into the St.Louis skyline and Arch. We had the quiche and lemon ricotta pancakes. Both of which were delicious. No need for syrup as the pancakes are sweet enough.

The rooftop Cielo Restaurant and Bar was a great choice for Father's Day Brunch. They had a special BBQ buffet and the al a carte menu. The burrata salad and the lobster ravioli were suggested by the dining staff and were excellent and fresh. The view of the river and the Arch are fantastic!

Unfortunately, the food is just average so I would suggest just going for drinks to take in the spectacular views.
I've had a casual lunch outside while at the pool in the past and it was pretty good, I expected dinner to be excellent.
There were a couple of situations that were disappointing, one being we were never informed of the specials prior to ordering (but overheard our waiter & others telling guests about the specials after we had already ordered). In addition, our waiter was not familiar with the beer selection and when they did not have what I ordered (on the menu), he just brought me a different beer in its place without asking me.

We sat outside on a beautiful day. It felt like we were at a beach resort! The Sicilian ricotta lemon pancake was to die for! The chick pea tart was too salty, so we sent it back and they gave us a new dish on the house! The manager came by to check to see if we were happy. A very good experience!
Great food, great view!
Husband and I loved our anniversary dinner at Cielo. Food was delish and we loved sitting outside and admiring the Arch views. Service was great and everyone went above and beyond to make our anniversary dinner special! Would definitely come back!
The experience here was great. The view ...
The experience here was great. The view really makes this worth it. But, the food and service were not great. The service was horrible. We arrived 15 minutes early for our reservations and they made us wait even though the tables were nearly empty. Then, in that 15 minutes it took us 10 to order a drink at the bar. After we were sat down it took a HALF AN HOUR before someone other than our waiter took our order. The food was ok for the price. But, that view... Almost worth it. Almost.
It was ok
The rooftop tables and view were the best part of the experience.
The food was good, with a decent variety. However 2 of the in our partywere vegetarians andeven all the pasta dishes had meat. The plates were expensive and very small portions.
There was a lot of confusion when the meals were brought. We were told that they had recently changed the names of the dishes on the menu and the runners who werebringing the food, called them by names other than what we ordered.
I'dgo back to the bar, but not necessarily dinner
