    For the most part we had a great time. There were aspects of the dinner that were amazing. The lobster bisque, bacon Mac and cheese, twice baked potato and brussel sprouts were fantastic. My husband medium rare filet was so overdone it was almost hard at the ends. My medium filet was way overdone also. I ordered it that way because the server said medium rare would still be cold in the middle, that was not the case at all. To pay that much for a steak and get it over poked is terrible. Lastly, our dinner reservation was at 6:15 and we didn’t get our main course until close to 8. Everything took so long. I want to give it another try but I’ll probably skip the steak. 🥺

    A wonderful meal, our best steaks ever. We had the tomahawk, bone in ribeye, sweet potatoes, broccolini, the brie and oysters as appetizers, wine and martinis. Excellent server and ambience. Really wonderful.

    This was our second visit to Cielo in two weeks. The first visit was phenomenal. The lamb chops were cooked to perfection. However, our meal last night was good…just not great. My wife and I both ordered the lamb chops again … to the same medium rare temperature. Firstly, they were not as big as last time. Also, they were cooked more towards the medium side which made them taste over cooked. We didn’t send them back as they take 45 minutes to prepare and we did not have that much time.

    We were upset that the steak would take up to an hour to cook so we had to get chicken. We went specifically for the steak.

    Hard to rationalize the value proposition. Our waiter/waitress notified us right away that we need to order “everything at the same time” (cocktails, appetizer, starter, main course, sides….they had to be ordered at the same time). I thought, as the customer, I should be able to order when I want. Sometimes, it’s nice having a cocktail as you browse the menu. Can’t I order a cocktail first, and you can come back in a few minutes for the food order? Apparently not.

    I thought this was going to be the perfect romantic spot for our anniversary dinner and I couldn't have been more wrong. I received a call from the restaurant a few hours before my reservation to remind me about their strict dress code and when we arrived there were people in flip flops, ripped shorts, backward hats, oversized shirts and sports attire! The conversations were loud, the service was terrible and the manager just stood at the foot of the bar barking orders. I would recommend you save $250+ and go somewhere where you can really get your money's worth.

    Filet mignon was not flavored most bland steak especially for a filet I have ever tasted. Canyons steakhouse 10x better for steaks. Very dissapointed in a 70 dollar steak tasting so badly. Medium rare too!

    Our evening at Cielo capped a wonderful weekend get-away. We were taken care of by Herbert who was professional in every way, making sure throughout the evening that we had everything we needed. The food was first class, cooked to our preference with Herbert's guidance. Our wine/champagne for the meal added just the right complement to a lovely evening! Thank you Cielo (especially Herbert) for a great meal... Regards, Joseph and Leslie

    The food and service were excellent. Our waiter, Enrique was attentive and made a great recommendation. My husband and I ordered 8oz steak and lobster. Lobster was sweet and delicious. The only hiccup was that we had reservations for 5:15 and did not get seated until 5:35. They offered us a table, but I had requested a booth. There were a few booths available, so I'm not sure what the issue was. We come at least once a year to celebrate our anniversary and first time we had to wait a little, even though we had reservations. Love this place though!
