Kitchen grill must have been too hot as two entrees and one appetizer were burnt. Service was good but you can’t enjoy it when the food isn’t good. Meatball appetizer was lukewarm at best and the toast/bread was burnt black on one side. Chicken entree was very burnt and dry. Surprised the kitchen would even serve the dishes.

The pasta was dry, the spinach and kale on the special was sandy and gritty. Maybe they think they can get away with terrible food since the location and view is beautiful. Tina, our server, handled the situation with grace. However, by the time the special was replaced, the others waiting had to eat their meal cold. The person eating the pasta did not evel feel like getting it replaced. Not a good experience at all, and disgraceful for a Marriott property, where we are gold elite members. We will not be going back, or recommending it to anyone else.

Our server was wearing a dirty and torn apron. She constantly stood behind us rather than coming in front of us to talk. They brought the wrong wine and tried to pass it off as what we ordered. The food was really good, but it’s not “elevated fine dinning” as advertised.

We waited close to an hour to get our food. It took over 20 minutes for someone to even get our drink order. Their menu online is not reflective of their actual menu which gives people with dietary issues a difficult time planning ahead. The wait staff was not attentive. The yogurt parfait was clearly old as the granola was very soggy. They ran out of pancakes but were able to make waffles? Just overall one of the worst brunch experiences we’ve had in this area. And we are locals. Not visitors. The location is beautiful though.

The food and view was great. Very nice location.
Service started off a little slow but got better as the night went on. The polenta fries are awesome. Make sure to check your bill because we didn't notice they added 20% tip onto it already so we ended up double tipping. The waiter really should have let us know when he set the checks down 😥

Anniversary dinner, our waiter was Chris, he was superb! The one issue was our steaks were overcooked and they replaced them within 6 minutes and gave us free dessert and coffee. The views are killer, the atmosphere cheery and upbeat. The music was great. Despite the hiccough the whole experience was amazing. Will definitely be back.

Excellent food and ambiance. Sat out on the patio to watch the full moon rise. Cielo had their usual astronomers with the telescopes present so guests could view the moon along with Jupiter and Saturn. Astronomers were very eager to show us multiple other heavenly objects. Great place for a romantic evening

My concern is how few people we see at Cielo and Adero. We've eaten and stayed here multiple times over the last several. Most recently did a 2 day staycation (great value!) in July and ate at Cielo both nights. Cielo/Adero is a gorgeous setting. The food and the rooms are fantastic. I want you to stay in business and thrive.

The food was poorly prepared. It was asked for the steak to be prepared medium and it was prepared blue/extra rare. The brick chicken was devoid of any flavor other than charred skin. The broccolini was fibrous. The sautéed spinach, salty. We chose to pay the tab and leave our uneaten meals. This was a place chosen for a 27th anniversary dinner and we probably would have been better served somewhere else. This was our introductory visit and also our last visit. In the future, I will advise others away from this establishment.

Restaurant is still working out the kinks. Service was slow and staff is inexperienced. However, they were very nice and courteous. The food was okay, but nothing special. Something on the menu for everyone. Good wine list at reasonable restaurant prices. Views from restaurant are spectacular. Prices are expensive relative to experience, but in lune with what you would expect in higher end hotel.

Cielo has potential, but it is yet to be fully realized.

We have dined at Cielo several times because we have good memories of meals there when it was Copperwynd Resort & under other names. The view is great and we used to know a couple of the staff there. We haven't been as thrilled with Cielo, as their menu is quite limited and the prices are high. The waitress we had has been at the property for about 7 years and we recognize her, but not for positive reasons. She has obviously not been trained well in customer service and lacks warmth or professionalism in her job, especially for a restaurant of this caliber.

Food was good but very expensive for the portions. For the price overall disappointed. Nothing remarkably memorable from the food to the cocktails. In hindsight would have rather been at SkyTop next door for a less hot patio and more enjoyable atmosphere.

Also extremely disappointed in the S'mores Dessert. Was served cold with a pre toasted marshmallow and block of Hershey's. A $15 dessert I make better in a microwave.
