Hello. I had another great time at Sunday brunch. I met the management staff (Sarah and Alec) and my server (Danielle) was fantastic. The view is really nice. The food selection is fantastic. The wine list is robust.

This was my second visit. The first visit was Sunday brunch and I loved it. The food was great, the bottomless mimosas, the atmosphere. For dinner I was not impressed. The streak was ok, the truffle fries were nothing fancy. I guess I didn't see the need to go out and pay $150 for something I could have done at home. There was no pizzazz, the taste didn't make me want to come back and order something else because my palate was pleased. The view was incredible and due to this I'll give the dining experience a 3 out of 5.

Once of the nicest, most memorable anniversary evenings in years! The staff was attentive, the chef delighted us with the most amazing food. Sadly, this was important to us, even though we were in downtown St. Louis, we felt very safe. I hope we get to go there again next anniversary!

Aside from the staff, who was phenomenal, my experience here was just "OK". FOR $50 a person for the Sunday brunch, I would have expected the restaurant to not be full of families and screaming children.

The food was pretty good, and definitely a lot to choose from. Our waitress was AMAZING and made sure our drinks were constantly refilled, and asked if there was anything we needed.

I took my girlfriend here for a date, and drove 4 hours because the reviews were outstanding. But like I said, over a $100 bill, and we had to sit in a dining area with screaming children and loud families.

WOW! This place went above and beyond all of my thoughts and expectations. I wish I could add more stars to my rating to show that.

Service:

I set up a dinner reservation for me to propose to my girlfriend. They called me to confirm and go over details several times to ensure everything was perfect. They accommodated every special request including a spectacular view, her favorite flowers, off menu non-alcoholic juice to celebrate, and our server to take pictures. Speaking of our server, Dallas was the absolute greatest server I have had in my life. This gentleman was nothing but polite and attentive to every single table out there. I can’t thank him him enough for the most perfect proposal experience.

Food:

Everything was spectacular! My fiancé and I love to try new things so I went for the seafood ravioli and she ordered the salmon. The ravioli was the most outstanding plate I have had in a while. The salmon was delicious as well. Our lemon parfait dessert was wonderful.

I have eaten here several times before and chose this restaurant to celebrate my retirement because of the beautiful view (which was obstructed by the construction) and the good food. The salmon that I have loved in the past was over cooked and dry, plus the portions were extremely small. I will not return because of the poor value though I am sure the view will be spectacular again. And the staff did a great job accommodating my son’s special request. Overall, very disappointing.

We had a really disappointing visit for the Mother’s Day brunch. We booked a seat outside, but I think due to the construction on the 8th floor, the setting wasn’t as nice and no outdoor seating. Definitely not as advertised and expensive.

We waited almost 20 minutes for a waitress. I have dined here before and the service and attention to detail was unsurpassed; my experience yesterday fell far short of my earlier experiences. The food was good but the less than stellar ambiance (restaurant undergoing renovations) really soured me on returning.

The food was overcooked and the server was rude. Our bill was incorrect twice. Server blamed another server, calling her “sloppy”. We informed the server about the overcooked food and we spoke to the manager but we were not satisfied. I arranged the dining experience for our party and was greatly disappointed. I have always had a good experience at Cielo, but the rest of the party who had never experienced it before were “underwhelmed”. They won’t be back.

Always love going to Cielo's . The food never disappoints. The Staff has always been extreamly friendly and courteous. This time I have to say our waitress was not what we are used to.
She was a little on the unfriendly side. It was noticeable to all off us, and since we have eaten at Cielo's many times it just stood out. We just never came across that before, everyone is always so friendly and tries to accommodate the customer.
If you are looking for something special and great food Cielo's is the place.

I would not recommend Cielo for your special occasion. I left a note in my reservation that I would like to be called to setup having a bottle, on ice, at the table ahead of time. When I did not hear from the restaurant, I called them to set it up. I spoke with a women about the menu, she read me my options, I selected a bottle and paid for it. I also requested having a soda on ice as a member of my group does not drink and I wanted them to feel included. I got to the restaurant early to put gifts on the table ahead of time and there was no bottle. The hostess who walked me to the table didn't say a thing. When I asked her about it she casually replied, "oh yeah, we don't carry what you requested"....that was it!! I was very taken aback and immediately stressed...this was meant to be a special night for my guests!! I asked if I could quickly order a different bottle before my guests arrived. I did. When my guests arrived the bottle was at the table, on ice, but the room temperature soda was just set on the table. Additionally, it was very obvious that my food had either been reheated or kept under a lamp b/c my plate was so hot I received a warning AND the pasta was so overcooked that it fell apart when I tried to spin it on my fork. The little lobster that came on the dish was crispy in places (I've ordered this before and received at least twice as much lobster before). Lastly, not as bad, but the 18 piece mussel appetizer came with 3-4 closed mussels....at a restaurant like this, I'd expect them to all be open. I specifically chose Cielo b/c, while I knew I would be paying for it, I expected the evening to be perfect....instead it was unnecessarily stressful and a big letdown.

Totally underwhelming experience. The wine list is pathetic. The list their house, private label wine as Cielo made by a Pinot winery in Oregon, yet the actual bottle is a screw top non vintage wine from Missouri.

The three pre-fix meal for $60 was supposed to come with a glass of prosecco sparking wine. I had to ask three times and it finally came with the main course.

The main course of short rib, was an extremely small portion, was cold, and served on a warm plate. It was hidden under three kelp leaves. It appears like they ran out of food and the server forgot to deliver the food from the kitchen to the table.

Lastly, as a visitor to St Louis either they are overcharging the sales tax on the dinner, or adding the hotel tax into the restaurant tax’s as well. The tax on the meal was 10..6%. Neither the waiter or the front desk in the Four Season’s knew what the sales tax rate was.

We gave up and you should too. This is the worst Four Seasons I’ve been to and I won’t go back.

For the third or fourth year in a row, we had Easter Brunch at Cielo. For the first time, they served in the Meeting Rooms on the sixth floor instead of in the restaurant. The restaurant is lovely, the meeting rooms are run-of-the mill Meeting Rooms. It was enjoyable. The food was still good. And - because we expanded from a party of two to a party of 8 at the last minute - the only reason they were able to accommodate us is because they were in a larger space.

And we will book them, again, for next year.

Easter Brunch........room was freezing, like sitting in a morgue trying to eat a warm meal. Roast beef froze the minute it hit my plate. First they said brunch will be in the cielo restaurant and bar on the top floor, which would have been beautiful. Then they call a few days before Easter and inform me that oops sorry but we need to shove you on the sixth floor in a ballroom with no windows! By then it was too late for me to get reservations somewhere else. Food was mediocre at best, mostly flavorless stews and roasts . I grabbed a bagel, it was at least 2-3 days old, for $90.00 per person the least they could’ve done is serve FRESHLY baked goods! Staff was nice but unorganized and discombobulated. Next year we’re back to our favorite Easter brunch:The Ritz!

I went to Cielo (mostly for the view) while visiting St. Louis for my birthday weekend. We found a Groupon for brunch for 2 and decided to give it a try. We were wowed by the food, the service, the drinks, and the views! Unfortunately it was too cold to dine outside looking out at the Arch but there are floor to ceiling windows so you don't miss the views. Our server was extremely attentive, our water glasses and mimosa glasses never got more than halfway empty, and when she realized it was my birthday weekend she brought me a special dessert that was not available from the buffet table and the plate had "happy birthday" scrawled in chocolate. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and hope to come back soon!
