A word from Cielo Restaurant and Bar
Cielo (“chee-eh-lo”): Italian word for “sky”
Renowned for our modern Italian cuisine and stunning skyline views from every table, Cielo features simple, elegant dishes, expertly prepared with quality ingredients. Our talented kitchen crew offers their take on Italian classics, from pan-seared veal parmesan with porcini glaze to house-made pizzas topped with smoked BBQ chicken, mozzarella, parmesan and caramelized onion.

Though our food brings a certain creative flare, at its heart, Cielo is about familiar flavors crafted by our expert culinary team and served in a breathtaking atmosphere.

Diner Reviews
  • "I dine at Cielo at least once a week - and the food quality is always outstanding, as is the service I always receive."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed our date away from our child and an opportunity to celebrate a birthday. I am not a bruchetta lover but became one this night! Also loved the Shrimp Taglioni. Restaurant had great lighting and view but it was a little noisy. Overall we really enjoyed our experience and hope to come back to taste more on the menu!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We went to the roof top restauarant and had a great experience. There was a large group there as well, and our wait for our meals was longer than expected. The waiter and manager handled it very well. We appreciated the service."

  • "Cioppino was great. Beautiful night with a great view of St. Louis."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The good was excellent but it took them over 2 hours to serve our party of 4! We had purposely chosen a 7 PM reservation to allow time before seeing a 10 PM show so we could have cocktails, but our dinner took every bit of 2 hours and 30 minutes. The food was delicious, but half of our party was starving by the time their food came because no bread was offered and they did not have a starter course."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I can't say enough about our experience. Every aspect of the evening - being greeted at the desk, the wine, food and the service was everything a 5 diamond restaurant should be! Our waiter (Brian) was outstanding and his recommendations were not only appreciated, but they were spot on! The view is terrific and it made for a perfect evening. We even got a tour of the entire kitchen! One of the nicest meals and experiences of our lives. Thanks!"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "The ambiance, whether inside or outside, is so welcoming and relaxing. Even though it is a very nice restaurant (after all, it is located in the Four Seasons hotel!), it is not pompous. The hostess, servers, and the manager were very attentive without hovering. The food was superb! We went for lunch and had the grilled octopus, crunchy olives, and shrimp small plates. We also had excellent salads, one with butternut squash and frisee, the other with roasted beets and spring greens. We had the white chocolate cheesecake...so light, fluffy, and delicious! I will definitely go back to this restaurant!"
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here. Service was friendly and prompt. Our Caesar salad was very tasty but a little dry. I had the Tagliolini with shrimp which was excellent and my husband had the ribeye which he enjoyed very much as well. We had a great view of the Arch and the outdoor patio. Dessert was delicious and we were surprised with a dish that had "Happy Anniversay" written in chocolate with two chocolate covered strawberries. Wonderful evening and would definitely come back!"

  • "delicious food, great service. doesn't hurt that we could go to the casino after our fantastic dinner either"

  • "Beautiful place...Gem for St Louis with best views in City"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The four-course, fixed price dinner was excellent and a good buy. The noise level from a pre-event cocktail party was overwhelming. The ambiance is less than one would expect at a Four Seasons--for example, no tablecloths."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Always a great place to go - food is amazing and the bar was quality drinks"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The food and service at Cielo were both top notch. It's a great view of St. Louis in a fun but relaxing environment. The bar is nice too if you want to grab a drink before dinner. Walk outside to take in the St. Louis skyline and take a good picture."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Ordered 2009 wine and 2012 brought to table but found decent 2007 at almost same price....watch the bait & switch. Too pricey for service and food level....not good description of what actually comes with entrée. Out of some deserts."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Fantastic view, excellent service and meal. This restaurant really lives up to Four Seasons Standard"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "When we arrived the Front Desk had no record of the Online Reservation we had submitted. I had to locate the Confirmation Email on my cell phone to prove we had a reservation. After I showed them the email, they told me that they had some trouble with the Online System that night. Well...if they already knew there was an issue, in the interest of customer satisfaction they should have taken my word for it and apologized right away. I felt a bit like a criminal standing there in the dim light searching for the email to prove what I was saying was true."

  • "I took my husband to this restaurant to celebrate his birthday. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Our server went out of his way to get a great shot of us out on the terrace. The view of the skyline is just perfect. It was too cold to enjoy sitting out on the roof, but I imagine it would be fantastic in the spring and summer. The menu was varied and the food was very good. I enjoyed the veal ravioli and my husband had the filet mignon and they were both excellent. It was not crowded the night we dined so we enjoyed a very long dinner and it was quite romantic. I highly recommend dining here."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We were looking for a place to have a nice dinner in St. Louis and found most of the restaurants we were researching seemed to be either sports bar types of places, informal rib places, or very old style cuisine. Cielo seemed to be much more "new age" with a lighter type of fare and a relaxed type of formality. That is exactly what it turned out to be and as a bonus, it was in The Four Seasons Hotel where we were staying and had a great view of The Gateway Arch. Our server, Bryan, was exceptional displaying a knowledge of the menu and not afraid to offer suggestions and when asked. The evening was capped off by Bryan asking if we wanted to tour the kitchen which we did and it was the perfect ending to a fine meal."

  • "We celebrated my wife's birthday. We enjoyed the Tuna and Ravioli. Desserts were also very good."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My husband and I dined here for the first time. The food was great, as well as the service. The scene was excellent, although is was foggy. This is a restaurant that we will visit again and refer friends to as well! We will make sure that it's a nice sunny day out next visit, so that we can enjoy the downtown skyline view."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I love this restaurant. It is one of my favorites. Chef has done a fantastic job since taking over. Quality food beyond compare...excellent menu options. I wish the music was not so loud because it's difficult to have conversations without talking loudly."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The best restaurant in Stl. We have been 6 times last month. It never disappoints us. We will be back on Sunday."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Great tasting menu - lots of variety. Service was a little slow - but food was so great it overcame the service"

  • "Always awesome at Cielo! What more is there to say? No matter the day of the week or time of day always great service, always great food, always awesome!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Awesome!!!! We expressed an interest in the kitchen's bakery & our waiter set up a tour and had our tiramisu served to us very romantically in the bakery!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "It was2/15; one day after valentines day... menu was limited due to a valentines special... however it was never disclosed to us that there was a valentines dinner menu for 2/15... this was our first time for dinning there and we were looking forward to it... we had looked at the menu online and already had expectations of what we were going to order. Service was very slow, to the point it ruined our dinning experience completely!!! Total lack of attention. We couldn't wait to get out of there and will never go back."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The maitre d' used our names when we arrived for our dinner reservation. The wait staff also used our names--a very inviting and warm reception. The waiting staff was very attentive and helpful. The food was very tasty. I had the short rib and my wife had the chicken. The rib meat was excellent. Vegetable portions were modest. The ambience, looking over the St Louis downtown skyline with the Arch in view, was great. We were there for Valentine's Day and could not go outside, but the outside area looks like it would we a great experience too with the right weather."

  • "Hey this place knocked my socks off. With its view and service and not to mention the delicious and mouth watering foodz.... loved it will go back over and over again. ..."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Haven't been to Cielo in a while so decided to give it another try. Not sure I will return. Service was very slow and hard to believe I was at a Four Season Hotel. Almost 25 minutes to receive our drinks. Ordered three martinis and our appetizers came out before the drinks. Each martini was filled an inch below the glass. My shrimp appetizer tasted like it was put together earlier in the day and kept in the fridge. The pasta course was better with the veal ravioli being very good and the shrimp pasta was good but a little to creamy. The entre of rare tuna was good. Tried three desserts and each was ok I would not want to order them again. Overall a very average meal and probably would not return."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "This is one of our favorite restaurants! The restaurant offers a four course tasting menu which cannot be beat. Each course is wonderfully prepared and professionally presented. We love this place and cannot wait to go back!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "One of my business partners was in town for 24 hours. We had a meeting downtown and needed a place for lunch. The view of the Arch, the river, downtown are most impressive from Cielo. Everything about the Four Seasons is impressive. It's hard to believe one is in St. Louis! Our server was outstanding and most accommodative, even noting the food exceptions I had noted on my Open Table reservation. Not every server at every restaurant does. If making a good impression is important, strongly consider Cielo."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Ordered scallops and ahi tuna; neither dish was inspired with any distinct flavor. Winter salad was very pleasing. Wine was also not very flavorful. Service was perfect and overview of St. Louis skyline was notable for the restaurant."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Everything about Cielo was perfect! Our service, food, atmosphere - it was all excellent!!! We can't wait to go back and sit on the patio when it's warmer!"

  • "A friend and I came to STL for a Wedding. Before leaving, we had asked someone who lives in your town for the best two restaurants to dine in. Cielo was # l. Our decision was made on his recommendation. We were NOT disappointed. Excellent service, food and the view was an unbeatable combination. Thanks Alan"

  • "Nice, quiet, romantic Food as good as some of my favorites in Chicago ( Old Como Inn new Rosebud) Wine list was good, Scotch selection borders on very good We will definitely go back"

  • "The view and service were good. The short ribs were very good. The other dishes I tried were very oily."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We had a great brunch at Cielo. The eggs benedict was very nicely done; during brunch, you can "build your own" and select ham, bacon, or salmon and from various accoutrements. My husband had delicious buttermilk pancakes -- generous portions, but he managed to eat it all with my help.The service was friendly and professional. The atmosphere was very comfortable and you can't beat the view of the Arch. I understand they sometimes run out of bomboloni, but it is worth the extra calories to try these deep-fried doughnuts with cream filling (vanilla and chocolate). They are the perfect sweetness and texture."

  • "From the moment we walked in, we were treated like royalty. Cielo staff called us by name and congratulated us on our wedding anniversary. All you have to do is tell them the reason you are celebrating, and they make it a special evening. I won't spoil the surprise, I'll just tell you that you are in good hands at Cielo. The food is wonderful and our waiter, Jeffrey, was fabulous, along with the other staff who never let the beverage levels go down too far. The manager checked in more than once, but was not bothersome. If you want to know how "the other half lives", go to Cielo and find out for yourself!"
