My friend and I ate dinner at Cielo on Friday night. We had reservations through Open Table at 8:15pm. We arrived early. They had an amazing table for us...right next to the piano. The gentleman playing was amazing! He played non-stop until he took a break. The service was top notch. The food was absolutely delicious!! The view of the mountains was breathtaking...especially at sunset. Everything was so wonderful! I highly recommend Cielo and will be back!

Chilean Sea Bass was so amazingly flavorful that I was still yearning for more the next day. And their Butter cake is sinfully rich! More importantly though, service was so professional yet not stuffy at all. Ask to sit at a table that Douglas serves. He was very helpful and attentive to details, and fun! Great place for a wonderful meal. (It's a bit pricey, but worth every penny!)

This was my first time at Cielo's, the food and service were outstanding. The portions are good size so come hungry, also the waiter inform us that the dinner experience usually takes about an hour an half. Make sure to go for happy hour at the bar before dinner check website for details on times.

A bit pricey as food quantity and quality not really great, but good, and wine special on wednesday is a good deal. Need to be more generous with ala carte veggies.. Most seem to be there for a birthday or special occasion.. Servers are great, friendly and efficient.

What a fabulous dinner! I took my daughter, daughter-in-law and three step-daughters for a girls night out dinner and wow were we taken care of! From the moment we were seated we were treated like royalty and the food and drinks were amazing. From the view to the beautiful dining room and excellent food it was a perfect experience. Thank you to our server, chef, restaurant manager and the "big boss" for treating us to a wonderful evening.

Outstanding !!!!
This restaurant continues to impress my wife and Me.
Pro: GREAT FOOD. STEAKS AND SEAFOOD are fresh and prepared the way they should be.
Con: SMOKE in the casino and those needing to run down to the casino to have a smoke.

The service team and management keep those smiles going, even when those dinner eaters have NO IDEA HOW GREAT the food is they are eating.

WELL DONE steaks with hot sauce and catsup. Fresh oysters covered with hot sauce - not for fresh Northwest oysters.

The Lobster Mac and Cheese is one of the best we have had in years.

The wines by the glass - exceptional wines are some of the best one could ask for.

We have dined here 4 times in the past two months - great place to have that date night with the wife.

Wish we could have made it a stay-cation, the drive back to La Quinta is not bad, but would have enjoyed that bottle of wine CIELO can sell to us at a reduced retail price.

We will plan to have another great night in the near future.

Piano player was very enjoyable.

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
