First time at Morongo. Was staying at another hotel in Palm Springs and got a dinner reservation at Cielo. Hostess was very accommodating when I called to increase guest count and when I made her aware we were a touch late. Enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant overall. Negative was hotel was very smokey as we were walking through. Highlights were $25 chai old fashioned which was expensive however really worth it as well as the blue cheese olives with my dirty martini, steak was great, wedge salad was really great, our server was amazing. To expand on server, younger blonde with dark highlights (wish I would have remembered her name); her menu knowledge, pace, and overall presence was spot on. Have been very conservative during this time and felt comfortable dining here. Will visit again upon my next trip to PS.

Excellent dinner and service in a beautiful setting. The only head scratcher is the layout - its on the 27th floor, but the design of the booths means there are no views when you’re sitting at your table. They really missed an opportunity to take advantage of what should be a focal point of the restaurant.

Beautiful setting, gourmet eating experience and excellent service. Very safe with masks and sanitizing. Couldn't ask for anything more in this time of Covid19 restrictions and very few open restaurants for sit down dining.

Have had dinner here many times and always very good but the last two times and this being the second. The steak quality was less than hoped. Steak was tough and chewy which a rib eye should never be. The side asparagus had several “woody” pieces. The cream cheese mashed potatoes were great and the highlight of the dinner as was the piano player. The Faust wine served by Corvan was also unaspiring. At $35.00 for a 9 oz pour was hoping the wine to be well kept but believe their Corvan selections need refreshing.

We love this place. The food is great, the staff is great. Service is on-point. This time the piano player was singing (some pretty mellow stuff) but it was great, previous was just piano. It's a great place for a special occasion or just date night like us.

Be sure make reservations well in advance. I recommend 5 day or more days. We had a 6pm reservation. Was seated right away. Food service was bit slow, but we'll worth the wait. We spilt a rib eye steak and ordered two sides. It was alot of food. Overall, this place gets 5 stars.

The kids at the table next to us we’re watching videos loudly and on speaker chatting. Very annoying, especially since management did nothing about it.

The view is beautiful. Service was OK. The food was OK but not great. Not worth $300. Honestly the steak at outback is better.

Pork Chop was Fantastic but huge could have shared. My guest recommend the Petit filet and they can't stop talking about it. We also had the Calamari (to die for) asparagus, baked potato and Cielo house salad. I don't think any thing on the menu wouldn't be worth a try the next time!

The food was amazing! Scallop plate was a generous portion and delicious. The bacon Mac and cheese and butter cake were to die for!
Our server Shawna was so amazing and helpful, she navigated us through the menu since it was our first time. Bartender was able to make yummy off menu non-alcoholic specialty drinks for me!

Their prices are WAY too high for what you get. We've been here quite a few times but only for special occasions because of the cost. $250 dollars for dinner in Cabazon is excessive but with COVID, your options are minimal. We will go back.

I dinned at Cielo for my 4th year anniversary with my girlfriend and it did not disappoint. Everyone from the hostess, busser, cooks, and our server Enrique were outstanding! Great service all around. Enrique started off by going over the menu with us and he was truly selling us on every item on the menu. We started off with ordering a Main Lobster Bisque soup and Crispy Coconut Shrimp. The shaved fennel salad that comes with the shrimp is to die for. Ultimately we decided on that nights dinner special “ Tomahawk Steak along with Fingerling Potatoes, Scallops, and Veggies.” We also ordered a side of Twice Baked Potato and the Smoked Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese. I want to thank the entire Cielo staff for making that night so memorable.
