Always liked this place before the pandemic, but they have done an excellent job now with social distancing and adding a greater variety of price points to the menu. Casi Cielo is one of my favorite restaurants now- the food and service is consistently excellent.

Beautiful brunch experience- second time here for brunch and tried the skirt steak and eggs poached in their salsa. Absolutely incredible. I always look forward to their flavored water and delicious coffees. Don’t miss the mezcal bloody!

We were craving Mexican after the holidays and wanted to try something upscale. We decided to give Casi Cielo based upon yelp reviews. Location was out of the way for us so for that reason I probably would not drive that far again. However, the ambience was great and our server was outstanding. Chips and homemade salsa arrived at the table and were perfection. The drinks were also a highlight and I highly recommend the "LA LLORONA" which is tequila reposado, jalapeño juice, agave, fresh squeezed lime juice, and homemade chile powder on the rim. So tasty and delish I had to have two! But beware...the rim will burn your lips off! The octopus, Pulpo, starter was good but I have had better. The octopus was supposedly cooked over a coal and it probably was but it was too slimy for my taste. I think it could have been a cooked a bit longer. Our entrees were good but not that memorable. If you live in the area definitely go for drinks and I am certain you will find something on the menu to your liking. Would be fun for a date night or a girls' night out for sure!

What a delightful place! Wonderfully creative cuisine and outstanding service! The entire restaurant staff was attentive, professional and genuinely interested in ensuring we enjoyed our experience! A huge plus is the heated patio which made dining outdoors possible in colder weather. I’ve already recommended açaí Cielo to other friends who are looking for outdoor dining options along with great food and ambiance plus will bring other friends here to dine! Thank you!

It was our first time dining at Casi Cielo and the food was delicious and our server, G, was great, but I think they could have done a better job of spreading out the tables. We were definitely not 6 feet away from everyone else.

As always, wonderful! We love the guac, halibut app, bowls, skirt steak is fantastic, too. If you can, try the Enchiladas Verdes, best I ever had.
Sure you can't go wrong with anything. AND DESSERTS! Amazing bread pudding, Chocolate Lava cake. Going to have to bring more people so we can try some of the other dishes. My friend is hooked on the Smoky Old Fashioned, amazing too.

I went here with my aunt and grandma to get everyone out of the house during Covid. The restaurant was not crowded but still had an excellent vibe. The staff did a great job of spreading everyone out and making you feel safe during this time. Our server, Alejandro, was incredibly attentive and energetic. He made excellent recommendations. We had the halibut and guac for appetizers which were delicious (the crispy kale on top of the guac was so great!), my grandma had the enchiladas Rojas, and my aunt and I split the duck carnitas which were absolutely to die for. For dessert, we split the lava cake and the bread pudding. Highly highly recommend everything about this place!

It was very excellent. From the drinks, to guac to marrow on board. We are still craving the fantastic flavors and have recommended to friends. Some of the food is indescribable as far as savory profiles. We just kept saying "mmmm". Server knew the menu and made worthy recommendations.

Our first time here and it was amazing! From the food to the service - it was just an absolutely wonderful time. Patio was comfortable and cozy. For drinks - we highly recommend the Smokey Old Fashioned (very cool presentation) and the Chilerita Margarita. The Fundido de Queso and the Guacamole with crispy kale were delicious.

Just an overall great meal with a great server (Araceli). If you are looking for authentic Mexican food from the Oaxacan region - this is the place! Highly recommend!

The only word of caution - is to give yourself plenty of time to park. There is a valet but it was SLOW.

Our server Lupe was great! She was lively, knowledgeable, friendly, and very attentive.
Sadly we did not like the food. We have traveled to Mexico many times and are very familiar with authentic Mexican food. The food was bland was the problem. Most of the food we ate lacked seasoning. The guacamole was delicious, but it had fried kale leaves and sprouts on it, which got in the way of the guacamole. The menu does say it came with greens, but if I had known I would have asked for it to not have the kale and sprouts on it. Plus that’s not authentic Oaxacan food. The margarita was excellent. We won’t be returning.
Oh and please the servers need to back off trying to take the plates away when they think the patron is done, too many servers getting in the way of our meal too often.

Solid 4.5, really nice place food is amazing and it is at a very good price. The desert vanilla capirotada is minding blowing my wife and I loved it.
A larger drink menu would have made it a 5 star in my opinion.
Definitely visiting casi Cielo again!!

Thank you,

I love this new restaurant. I have only been there twice myself, but other family members have been before as well. However, this night, my dinner was sub-par. I should have just ordered what I had the very first time which was Pollo Gaujillo, but I made a mistake and asked the person carrying out the food what did he recommend and recommended the Verde Enchiladas. I have a feeling that he was just helping the cook out since my first choice was mote trouble to make. The dish that came was very bland, very small portions, as well as barely any Pollo! I was actually hungry when I left the restaurant which was disappointing. The goos part about this night was that it was very festive. Although the flyer they promoted had more of a party vibe, they start closing up shop rather early. I came there with friends because of my great experience the very first time, but this day was a miss for me.
