Absolutely loved this place! I unfortunately can’t recall our waiters name but he was awesome with his service. The food is as satisfying as it looks in the photos. This can indeed be an expensive dinner but totally worth it! We did the “Romance” package which was an extra $20 but included a candle lit dinner and rose petals. I appreciate this restaurant for blessing the anniversary my girlfriend and I shared!

We sat for dinner at 7pm. I think our server may have had too many tables because he did not get around to us until we asked another server to help (several times). We did not receive our main course food until 8:45. And, it's not because we were trying to pace ourselves. Ordering took forever, the food took forever. This place has been on my list of places I wanted to try and it was very disappointing! I would not go back or refer a friend.

Servers always delivered wrong plate although there were only 5 T table. Wine list is overpriced and uninspired. Room is inviting but fully amortized and maybe even tired after all these years. Why do all high end west side boites charge $12 for valet remember when that used to be validated?

This the perfect place if you want to impress your date. It has such a fancy, yet modest and natural aesthetic. This is great for an anniversary or birthday dinner. It made my girl's night.

Nice place to go spend a ton of money for the Sake of spending to impress. Tiny portions, weren’t that great. We got stuck with a tiny table in the bushes. Great for Instagram. Don’t come hungry.

The food was wonderful. We enjoyed every bite. The atmosphere romantic. Unfortunately our evening started off very poorly as our waiter accidentally spilled my wife’s cocktail (Foxy Champagne) all over the table as well as on the both of us. While he apologized, it made the evening much less enjoyable with a stained white shirt and dress. What made it worse was when the check came out, nothing was comped. For a fine establishment such as this, I expected that was the very least it could offer. Yes, the cocktail was comped, but only after I brought it up. That I had to bring it up after seeing nothing was comped is unacceptable. Then to top it off as we left, not a single “thank you” from the manager (who was at the door) nor from the hostess confirmed that I will not be returning and will not be recommending Il Cielo to anyone.

The ambiance was incredible. Courtyard lighting was beautiful and helped create the intimate atmosphere. The staff was attentive and the food and wine delicious. I highly recommend ordering the La Passione for dessert. It’s well worth the 15 minute preparation time.

LET ME START BY SAYING THIS WAS THE BEST FOOD IVE HAD IN A LONG TIME! I would recommend solely on the food!!
Now to why I’m giving 2 stars.

I made this reservation 2 months, maybe even 3 months in advance. Saying in the notes “we would really appreciate a great table because it is my husbands and I’s honeymoon”
Me and my husband came to Cali for our honeymoon. We went hiking for 3 days and flew to LA that day. This was our first night really eating a normal meal, and our first meal after our wedding night. Based on the reviews saying it was the “most romantic restaurant in LA” so I booked this restaurant 2 MAYBE 3 months early to assure a really great table.

Super excited to come here only to be disappointed with it about 10 minutes in. Don’t get me wrong, it is very beautiful. But we got the table in the back corner, with not as many lights around us and next to the kitchen door and next to what seemed like the back door to someone’s house. So we heard clinking and clatter our entire meal. There were tables all around us (one literally right next to us) with rose petals and candles for special occasions... but we didn’t get one of those. And no one sat at those table our entire time there. What else did I have to say to get a “special table”??

We were both wearing black bottoms and wasn’t offered a black linen and the white linen got white specs all over our outfit.

My husband doesn’t drink, I got a drink and we ordered a bottle of sparking water and later he asked for a regular water and never got it.

We felt like the runt of the litter there. We are both in fine dining, him an executive chef, and me a maitre d’. So we looked for those small details they failed to deliver. No one even knowledge we were celebrating not even a “congratulations” it felt as if they went out of their way to make the visit less special for us.
I was tearing up at the table because this was my surprise to him and wanted it to be special. And it just fell threw the cracks.

I took my friend there for her birthday which was noted in the reservation. I confirmed it with the maitre d and the waiter upon arrival who even told me they were aware. They brought the check to my surprise never bringing a birthday dessert which every restaurant I have ever been too has done. When I asked the waiter, he said they don’t offer that gratis, it has to be paid for. Considering how much they charge for food and valet parking, not the best policy.

Super nice staff with tons of manners with that said we Had to ask our waters to be filled in 4 separate occasions and my second drink took forever to come. Our waiter said the bar was sleepy... funny but still. Food was meh. Atmosphere was beautiful but I’ve had beautiful with good food. Oh also my friend’s cup had a chip in it and when we told the waiter he said “oh so you want another one?” He wasn’t rude about it but it was like yeah a chip on a cup is dangerous
