Cielo Restaurant and Bar
Saturday BrunchMom ordered lobster ravioli (fantastic), sister had blueberry creme brulee french toast (amazing), and I ordered the white chocolate chip blueberry pancakes (the chips melted like butter atop what have been called, "the best pancakes in the country"--I think they very well may be. The texture was lovely and the flavors were complimented elegantly by an aromatic pot of Rishi blueberry rooibos tea. Afterwards we visited the rooftop seating/longing area-such beauty and vibrant colors in an otherwise "dilapidated and sometimes graffiti-laced" location should probably be considered an oasis.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNot what it's hyped up to beThe service was great, the view was amazing, but the food was mediocre. No wonder this Four Seasons restaurant isn't as expensive as most other Four Seasons restaurants. I ordered the steak medium rare and it came out well done. I sent it back and the next steak was cooked medium and was butterflied to decrease the cook time. It wasn't a high quality filet either. I had heard great things about the restaurant but did not have my expectations met. I'm not a picky person either...5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. OurThe food was excellent. Our server was knowledgable and made great wine pairing choices for each course. He did seem rushed. My only complaint would be the noise level, it was really loud.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & service, wrong musicThis restaurant gets A's across the board. The food, service, ambiance and view were all superb. The only downside is the music. While they should be playing soft, quite and romantic jazz or classical music, they were playing pop and dance music which was totally out of character for the restaurant. That was a little disappointing because it sort of ruined the mood but but other than that, it's a great restaurant for special occasions, delicious food and dessert and romantic outings!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great experienceWe had a great experience - excellent service - and they allowed us to use the 20% off coupon for being new member of OpenTable!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVisited Cielo for a specialVisited Cielo for a special anniversary dinner. The food and service was wonderful. They even treated us to champaign and strawberries to celebrate. We will definitely go back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I are frequentMy wife and I are frequent diners at many of St.Louis's best restaurants. Our expectations are pretty hign, and Cielo did not disappoint us. We were lucky enough to get a window table overlooking the river, arch and downtown. Got to be one of the best views in the city. The food was excellent and inovative. My wife had the veal and I had a striped bass special. It was a busy Saturday night, but both of our meals were prepared perfectly. Service was great, and the wine list on an iPad was a fun innovation.
While not cheap, I felt the the prices were very fair for the quality of the meal.
One note, because the restaurant is open to the bar, the noise level can be fairly high.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest view of the St.LouisBest view of the St.Louis skyline! Wonderful service from the bar staff and the best duck I have ever tasted. Will recommend to anyone visiting St. Louis.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were wonderful. It was a little noisey our liking, especially for the price. There was a beautiful view, unfortunately, they have over 1/2 of the tables set up so that only 1/2 of the table gets to see the view, the other half is facing a wall. It would have been nice if they would have given a little more thought into the seating arrangements so more people could see the beautiful view of the arch.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCielo's was very nice forCielo's was very nice for Easter Brunch, they put on a great show, very pretty. When we got the bill for $171.00 for 2 of us...we were shocked to say the least..when I looked this restaurant up on Open Table it read $$, which is usually reasonably priced...We enjoyed the brunch very much, and loved the view, but this price was sadly ridiculous. This is the reason ONLY I would never recommend this to anyone I know.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I have eatenMy husband and I have eaten many times at Cielo. The food is very good and the ambiance of the Four Seasons is warm and friendly. It is one of my favorite places to dine in Saint Louis.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI like this restaurant soI like this restaurant so much more since Chef Fabrizio took over.

We are definitely coming back when we can enjoy their amazing patio.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a wonderful restaurantThis is a wonderful restaurant whose atmosphere in STL can't be beat. The chef prepares delicious items and the Tasting Menu is a nice touch for those who want to sample more items from the menu. Be aware they truly are sample size portions on the tasting menu, but still delicious. Most everything else about this restaurant is wonderful and it is my favorite in St. Louis.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was outstanding,The service was outstanding, but the food was just kind of bland. I was really hoping for bigger flavors.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Four Seasons dining w a view!Located within the Four Seasons, Cielo delivers innovative food and excellent service. The bar has bleu cheese stuffed olives which are always a welcome feature! There are prix fixe options on the menu and great food selections, including an incredible pan seared veal dish that is worth going back for!
