Il Cielo Gardens Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Truly a wonderful experience at Il Cielo. We recently moved to California and the pressure was on for my first wedding anniversary so I was nervous picking this place without knowing anything about it really. Fortunately for me, our experience was amazing! This place overflows with ambiance, offers great wine, and the food is on point. Every single bite was delightful. It's been 3 days and the wife is still talking about what a great time she had here, even that this might be her favorite meal she's ever had. Now I just have to figure out how I sustain this level of perfection for the anniversaries to come!
I love coming here with my husband. The setting is perfect for every one of our anniversaries. The waiters are very attentive to our needs. Very nice staff. This is our go-to every anniversary of ours & I’d highly recommend it. The food is just as amazing as the service.
We love this place! Our waiter was nice darn right amazing he really helped us out when ordering our meal with the right wine. The Cauliflower soup was so Delicious. We will most definitely be back soon and maybe hold our birthday party here. Really I don't have one bad thing to say about this Restaurant because it was Absolutley beautiful! If you are thinking about checking this place out make sure you put this one st the top of your this!
I love this place! The personnel were extremely friendly and attentive. Our waiter even recommended a drink for me and said if I didn't like it, I wouldn't be charged and id get another drink of my choice for free (Of course I loved it though). The food was very good. I got the romance package which included a long candle, rose petals, and dessert with a script of my choice. Everything was perfect and my date loved it as well.
Once again...delicious food (the veal chop was exceptionally good that evening), great ambience, very romantic. We had a small bump in the road when we prefer front patio seating as opposed to rear patio but that worked itself out within about the time of a cocktail at the bar.
We arrived on time for the reservation but they had us waiting for 1/2 hour although the restaurant was not completely full. I had to ask for them to check and they immediately gave us a table outside, nonetheless the request was for inside seating. They moved us to inside upon request. The positive was the waiter, very friendly and really helped us feel confortable and enjoy the night.
Had a reservation , still had to wait outside nearly 30 min for the table. The two cocktails and one of the salads (carpaccio) were very good, the other appetizer that was supposed to be a artichoke was all shaved parmesan. But the two pasta main dishes were terrible and overpriced. Not good at all. Paid for a package that was for a very over-sized awkward looking candle on the table and some rose petals (do not recommend) and the dessert was supposed to have specific writing on it to reveal a surprise gift . I confirmed the writing twice on two separate days over the phone. It was not on the plate so I had to be embarrassed and tell my boyfriend what the surprise was. Also the dessert was dry and very artificial tasting, neither one of us could eat more then a couple of bites. Definitely not worth over three hundred dollars to dine here. Very disappointed.
Wife and I went here for our 1st Anniversary while visiting LA. Food was great, menu is great for all diet types, the ambience is fantastic, the outdoor seating is serene, the service impeccable, and the setting romantic.
Only minor squabble is they got the requested message on the cake platter mixed up with some other guest's 16th birthday, rather than our anniversary. But we had a good laugh about it.
Il Cielo is one of my favorite go-to restaurant in the lower Beverly Hills/W Hollywood & Mid Wilshire adjacent area. The food is good, service excellent and eating on the patio is a very nice experience. Only caveat - the fans in the patio can be on the high setting, but the staff is quite willing to turn the power level lower. Recommend this place highly.
My husband and I done out a lot. This time it wasn't only a special occasion.... but a wonderful experience. The waiter, didn't catch his name, went above and beyond. He was very attentative. And had me order something I usually wouldn't. The food was excellent. The service was awesome. It wasn't rushed like most places. Here, you are able to take your time, enjoy your meal and the people you came with. Dessert was great. I added the romantic package so our table can have rose petals and candles ... Everything about this place was great. I'm surprised this place ain't as popular as it should be.
This was our first time at Il Cielo and it did not disappoint! The ambience is romantic and classy. Our waiter was attentive, but not TOO attentive. The food was better than expected and the portions were good. I was impressed that my drink was actually strong... a lot of the "hotspots" water down their drinks, but not here. Nothing but good things to say about our experience. Extra points to the owner who visited many of the tables and was super sweet and genuine. We'll be back very soon!
The service was incredible. Ambiance lovely. Wine list fabulous. My daughter and I had the grilled salmon which was just ok - would have been better with a grilled glaze. Daughter's date had the wild boar pasta - which was very good. Husband had the rack of lamb which he said was just ok. Had a bottle of wine. Bill was $400+. Not sure we'd go back.
The ambience is wonderful inside and out. The service staff is always friendly, helpful and beyond efficient. I brought my out-of-town friends to enjoy the California afternoon and they were blown away. I ordered off the Prix Fixe Lunch menu. Started with the Insalata Caprese and had the fish of the day; Bronzino with a crispy skin cooked to perfection over a fennel with zucchini puree. The portions were large and a good deal at the $25 per person price.
Simply outstanding. We ate at several different restaurants in the Beverly Hills area during our trip to LA and this was by far the best experience and a surprisingly good value. The ambience is outstanding whether outdoors (where everyone was) or indoors. The service took a few minutes to get going but was ultimately friendly, attentive, and not rushed, with knowledgeable wait staff. Salad, soup and homemade focaccia bread were excellent. Main courses of whole fish, frutti di mare, and boar pasta were all outstanding. Wine list was deep with many Italian varietals as well as California staples. We don't often get dessert but we fully enjoyed affogati and gelato with extra special attention from our waiter Marco. Looking around everyone else was also having a fantastic evening. Will absolutely return.
