This was a lovely restaurant. The food was delicious and the Butter cake was THE BEST. The service was excellent. They were friendly and very helpful. A bit pricy, but the food and service were worth it for a special occasion. The Piano player was a nice touch too.

Anniversary dinner, staff was very friendly and efficient, food was very good. The Lobster bisque is a must! My filet was cooked correctly, and the butter cake dessert was a perfect ending. I’m sure we’ll be back next year!

Made reservations for my wife’s birthday on open table, everyone from maitre dee to server (Serena) wished her happy birthday, the Chairman’s choice of Rib eye was perfectly done medium rare, they even allowed my wife to have a different salad instead of what was on the Chairman’s Choice, and the dessert was decadent!!
Great experience and will Go back for sure

First time at this restaurant and it was very nice. Food was good. So many dessert selections and the butter cake with berries was phenomenal! The one food item I didn’t care for was quickly replaced. Excellent service! The piano player that night made the ambiance very warm and welcoming.

Jose has helped with our dining experience many times now and is amazing every time. We had a new server named Larissa that made dining with a toddler effortless. Service was great and food was delicious. Great way to celebrate a birthday with staff making the visit enjoyable. Can’t wait to come back.

Careful asking for to-go boxes. They do not put everything that you have leftover in the boxes. We lost most our leftovers to either theft of they just simply threw it away. When you pay almost $600.00 for a dinner for 4 (we were celebrating) you will have LOTS of leftovers. We had filled up on mostly appetizers and didnt even eat hardly any of our 32oz steak or Lobster mac n cheese. When we got home and wanted ti snack the boxes were basicly empty. Shame on you Cielo!!! Never going back....

Great service! The Manager came to our table twice to check on our food and if need anything else...we feel very important! Though we didn’t enjoy the view much because there was a storm that evening, we did enjoy the old classic music being played on the piano by this awesome gentleman. The entree we ordered was decent, the black cherry cheesecake we had for dessert was real bomb! We had a great time!

We have enjoyed Cielo over the past 8 years. Our last experience was very poor. We decided to share entrees adding a couple of sides to round out the meal. Our waiter forgot the sides making our meal very sparse. Eventually brought them late after we finished our main. This was very confusing since we seemed to have a waiter, assistant waiter, wine steward, and maitre d. Too many employees and not even the basic service. Our waiter was indifferent about the situation and gave the impression that we didn't order it correctly. This was the same response from the maitre d. Let's face it, Cielo is an expensive restaurant. We don't mind paying the price if we receive good service. Very substandard experience.. We are not sure if we will return. I hope you figure out your issues as we need good restaurants in the area.

Service was good- annoying that they serve diet cokes out of a can - food was not great - had seafood pasta(50.00) was not great flavor was meh - buddy had steak and lobster and was happy with that- manager was present in restaurant entire night- celebrating birthday put candle in butter cake as nice treat but still charged for desert- not a huge deal but spending that kind of money on dinner would have through a bday desert would have been added treat - will go back and order steak next time - overall decent meal

Brought my friend her for a birthday dinner, great scenery at the 27th floor, but the service was lacking. The front desk person that seats you was a man, seems to be in training. I arrived for my 7:30pm reservation but my friend not yet so I asked to be seated while I order for her. The guy said, if she is not here, I'll move you to 7:45. I tried asking to be seated but he was like, sorry I already moved your reservation to 7:45. I was like, fine so be it...7:45, went up and this time I was seated while my friend was at the bathroom for we didnt want to be moved again. We were seated in a little corner near a post it seems like. My friend is claustrophobic but we decided not to ask to move based on attitude at the front. Drinks slow to come by. Appetizer was good, but before we could even finish, the service table guy said, your main course is here, do you want it now or later...we looked at each other in shock and said, now then. We were still eating our main course when the waiter came to ask if we needed to box anything...any person can see us that we were still eating, not even half way with my steak...again we looked at each other and said, in a few minutes please. Literally a few minutes later waiter came back saying, can I box now...I said, sure with fork and knife in hand! We were still enjoying our meal when everything was boxed for us. We felt rushed as if people were waiting to be seated when it was almost empty....the food was not bad, nice place for a date, nice view, just the attituted and rushed did sit well with us. We havent seen each other in years so were catching up on alot of things but we were eating. Price was high. I've been to steak houses and this one is overpriced. I think I got turned off on the service level and attitude. You wont know until you go there. Some may like the service, we didn't. Suffice to say we wont be going back. I rather go to Outback SteakHouse.

Worst restaurant experience we ever had. Came to celebrate my daughters birthday with friends who were going to the show. We had 6:30 reservations, plenty of time to enjoy a nice dinner before our friends needed to leave for their show. From the time we ordered to the time we got our food almost 1 hour and 15 minutes had passed, people who were seated right before us were long gone, people seated after us were done before us. Our friends had to scarf down their food and still missed the first 3 songs of the show. They also were not present when we were finally served dessert and wished our daughter happy birthday. My wife asked to speak with the Manager who never showed up. They are not interested in their customers who are spending good money. The waitress never apologized and her only excuse was that several people were going to the show. WE WERE GOING TO THE SHOW??? Obviously they don’t plan very well, which is why people make reservations,so you can gave a plan. The server brought us bread and when we didn’t eat it right away he came and picked it back up. Who does that? The food when we finally got it was just ok. Ordered a 14oz steak that was not more than 10. I am a grocery executive so I do know. It was VERY EMBARRASSING. I was embarrassed, the hotel should be embarrassed. Having lived in Las Vegas and my parents having run restaurants I can tell you this is a poor excuse for a nice resort dining establishment. I probably would have gotten better service and food in the food court and saved a couple hundred dollars in the process.BE WARNED, DO NOT GO TO CIELO. You will be wasting your money. I will never return to this restaurant.

The food was just OK. The Lobster tails were undercooked and were barely warm when served, The Chicken Saltimbocca was good. Service was extremely slow! We initially waited a long time for our drink orders and it did not improve. A couple in our group arrived late, a little before the table side Caesar Salad was being prepared. We asked if the order could be doubled to serve 4 people. The waitress said she would have to put in another order. She served the salad for two. When served it was divided 25% to 75%, no effort was made to give equal servings. It was almost 15 minutes before the waitress appeared to prepare the second salad order? This restaurant is priced like a 5 star restaurant but does not live up to expectations. Skip it.

We enjoyed the atmosphere in the restaurant. The staff were friendly and welcoming and interested in us. The food was great! It was for my husband's 71st birthday which they knew about. The birthday dessert was the plainest we have ever seen. Just a bit of ice cream and whipped cream mainly. Small amount but complimentary.

The service was exception from all wait staff. They all made us feel very welcomed. They surely were specially trained to be so pleasant, gracious and non-intruding. And the food was so delicious.
