Cielo Restaurant and Bar Ratings and Reviews
Very disappointing. 124$+taxes+tip=too much for Two. This is one of the worst Sunday Brunch Buffets we've been to. I'll start and end with the good.....Waitress was a genuine joy and the BBQ tent was serving up perfectly cooked lamb lollipops .
The reheated French toast was not bad and the 12$ valet was compted ....everything else was not much better than a second rate Hotel chain......
The environment is visually great, but that is about it. The hostess was pleasant. The waiter forgot to serve us the complimentary bread. Water refills were hard to come by. The menu online is not updated daily, so most of it was unavailable. There was a "special" fish buffet being offered with 6-ounce pieces of fish flash grilled next to generic side dishes. The food is of low-quality, especially for the inflated prices. I ordered the Short Rib Risotto that had zero short ribs in it. I mean literally had to search for nonexistent meat. It was tasty, but should not be called Short Rib Risotto if the main ingredient is not obvious. The plate cost $24. My guest ordered the red snapper, fries, and side salad. The fish was literally flavorless and near raw, the salad looked like it was bought from the grocery store and dropped on the plate, and the fries were good but only ten or so were not he plate. This meal cost $30. Our food came out staggered by 30 minutes. The restaurant bills itself as casual family dining, but it is more accurately described as poor-dining at fine-dining prices. I will not be eating here again. I might come for the ambience, but arrive after having eaten somewhere higher quality for a bette price.
Never have I paid for such subpar food and service. The Sunday buffet selection was made up reheated frozen foods at any 15 dollar buffet. The bottomless mimosas were hardly worth price and also tasted like sunny D and cheap champagne. The oysters and cold cuts were questionable at best.
Took my Mom and partner here for dinner. Mom was visiting and wanted somewhere with a view of the Arch. This place delivers in spades and had a beautiful indoor space, in addition to tons of outdoor dining.
The patio also overlooks the hotel pool, so people watching abounds.
The restaurant is lovely, service is top notch and they were extremely accommodating and patient with food allergies, so I definitely recommend it. Plenty of options for cocktails and wine, but they also carry one of my favorite teas, so you will not be without options, no matter your tastes.
They have an amazing brunch and I haven't been yet, but planning on coming back forbthat with bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys.
This was my third visit for brunch and it was disappointing. The buffet selection has gone downhill. They no longer offer many of the items that they used to. The shrimp are small, no crab, no lamb, no sliders, no fresh fruit anywhere, and everything was picked over by noon. For $48 I expect more variety. Add some cold salads, eggs Benedict, waffles, fruit and Bring back the lamb. The view and service are first rate but that doesn't make up for the poor selection and quality of food. Not up to the standards of the Four Seasons.
We went to the restaurant for brunch. They had the option of sitting inside or outside on the 8th floor roof. We opted for outside. Terrific view of the riverfront and Arch. If the weather is cooperating, you definitely want to be outside. The food and service were very good. It is a bit pricey and we went there for a special occasion. The food is definitely a step up from the usual fare offered at breakfast buffets anywhere around. There was a full service bar and several stations with a variety of well prepared food. Oysters, shrimp, smoked salmon, pasta, roasted chicken, prime rib, omelettes, and pastries were part of the many choices. The staff was very accomodating. Overall, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
My husband and I went for Sunday brunch and had a great experience! We'd purchased the Groupon for 2 people and it didn't disappoint. The seafood bar, cheese and meat boards and pasta was amazing! The only thing that I didn't feel was up to standard was the dessert bar. They were filled with pastries, donuts etc. but didn't have a wide variety of different kinds of desserts (cookies, cake etc). However, the unlimited bloody mary bar and mimosas were an added bonus and you have to get the boozy milkshakes! We sat outside and it was a wonderful view and not that crowded. The waitress even let us change tables when we got too hot.
We were staying at the Four Seasons and booked dinner at cielo on open table. We were not notified that there was no menu that night and we were stuck with an absolutely awful Hawaiian luau. Our reservation was for 8:30. We weren't even seated until 8:45. The luau ended at 9:30. They didn't refill the salads. It was picked through. The hostesses never told us about the fact that we could not order off the menu. Food, what there was of it, was old and not good. We paid $115, with tip. Luckily we told our third person to not even bother meeting us. Had no clue while we spent $70 on drinks at the bar prior to being seated that we would be charged a per person price that included alcohol. Talked to a manager who was not helpful and asked if he could bring us salad. I said forget it. He did mention that we could order food at the bar. Which we did. Spending an additional $70. He said he'd refund our money. Which he did not.
I love open table, but there should have been a notification or some sort of block so we didn't end up in this position.
The brunch was not even close to being worth $48.00.
There was no salsa where they were cooking the omelets. Also no jalapenos for the omelet which I think are a must.
There was also no straight horseradish for the cocktail sauce or the prime rib. by the way, the prime rib was tasteless.
Basically, I spent $48 (times 4) for shrimp cocktail and an omelet.
I have been to Cielo several times for dinner, but this was my first Sunday brunch. I really enjoy Cielo. But not this time. Warning, I don't usually have a first experience on a special event (Father's Day) but here's the happenings:
I reserved brunch for five about three weeks out from Father's Day. They were not advertising a special brunch for this day (unlike many places do for Mother's Day). When we arrived, we were promptly seated in the Mississippi Room (I believe) which is probably used as a private dining room for medium-sized events on a normal day; it's not normally used for Cielo dining. It does not have the nice views or ambiance of Cielo; It was about 68 degrees with a breeze from the A/C. I'm never, ever cold but I was cool. The rest of my family was very uncomfortable. We were greeted after a short wait by a waiter who simply asked for drink orders. The brunch includes mimosas and bloody Marys, it seems, but were we not told of this (we found out from another waiter at another table).
The food at the buffet was, mostly, excellent and well presented. A pet peeve of mine is using "sea stix" (imitation crab meat) in dishes such as lobster mac and cheese and seafood ravioli. The later was stuffed with very real, and tasty, seafood, but why put the imitation stuff in the sauce? And putting it as the staring ingredient in the lobster mac and cheese? Ridiculous. My other major complaint is there was absolutely no fresh fruit anywhere except as a garnish on a few of the deserts. A brunch buffet with no fruit of any kind? I don't know that I've ever seen that, before. Others were complaining about it, too, around us so I know it was not simply that we didn't see it.
Oh, and I gave my valet ticket to a host to get it validated. After not getting it back for a while, I asked her about it and she had lost it. So getting my car back took a bit longer than necessary as I had to find my key for the valet.
Food selections were good and the seafood was fresh and tasty. Loved the Stone Crab claws! Bloody Mary's, although "unlimited", had absolutely NO alcohol (I drank at least 4 and was too full to drink more) but they are spicy and tasty. The Bellini's are probably a better choice unless you like drinking a lot of spicy tomato juice with no Vodka.
The staff from confirmation of the reservation to the server were very friendly and attentive. The view of the city and the Arch is spectacular. The kiddie pool right next to outdoor dining looked awkward(we had a table inside). I had mimosas which were included as were bloody Mary's and boozy milkshakes. Our table and those around us were filled throughout the meal without asking. The food selections were average at best especially for the price of the brunch. The seafood oysters,crab legs(tasteless) and shrimp were always filled and had appropriate condiments. The French toast bar sounded great but the bread was dark and dry, not eggy as French toast should be although good condiments(berry jams,whipped cream). The bacon was meh...not Four Seasons worthy. Omelets looked good although I did not eat one. The seafood ravioli was delicious but there was no lobster visible in lobster mac n cheese. The charcuterie bar was I was really excited about was disappointing with tasteless cheese, ZUCCHINI, 2 types of olives and a couple of meats. It looked like it was never touched or replenished during the time we were there. Another disappointment was the donut station. Yes they did make fresh donuts but no-one that tried one at my table liked them...dry. The other pastries that were brought out tasted better. I wouldn't eat Brunch here again as there are better choices at half the price.
We went for Sunday Brunch. The location is nice in downtown St. Louis. My expectations for a $50 brunch were high. I was fortunate to have a Groupon, otherwise I would have been quite disappointed at the limited brunch selection at the regular price. They ran out of some of the seafood options before noon. Other dishes were not refilled promptly. The various tables were spread out including outside of the main restaurant area. The Bloody Mary bar was nice.
P h e nomenal food and service. Mimosa servers were consistent glasses were never empty. Food was very varied with a great selection. I'm a carbaholic so when I saw the fresh made on the spot donuts and desserts I was like heyyyy how are you lol and typically I'm in a food coma after a few treats but after 6 plates of food of veggies breakfast fish meats and desserts I still feel ready to go for the day. Smoothies ran out and a waitress ran back and made a different kind and just the efforts and etiquette of the workers were fantastic. Make reservations weeks in advance and enjoy the view
This brunch has to be the best brunch in St. Louis. I was blown away by all the offerings - from omelettes to fresh lobster to prime rib to pasta. The dessert table was insane, with a french toast bar and homemade donuts being made right in front of you. Also, the brunch comes with unlimited mimosas, bloody mary's and boozy milk shakes. Insanely good! And the views cant be beat!
We have eaten at Cielo in the past and have been very happy. We loved Cielo. We had a difficult time getting a table and couldn't get one outside even though tables were empty and it is supposedly first come first serve. The food was terrible and the wine list was not as good as it had been in the past.
I had to write four seasons about this place. I spent $200.00 for my wife and I anniversary and it was terrible. People going in and out to the pool thru the restaurant, Food was overcooked. The service was good. The only good thing about this restaurant is the view.
