Il Cielo Gardens Restaurant & Bar
They were amazing, everything was perfect. They made our anniversary one to remember.
I told her that the cake need to add I love u, but it doesn’t have it.
A very good value too! Big portions, all delicious.
We dined here for our wedding Anniversary and the experience was amazing. Beautiful and romantic patio, food and service was excellent. This is one of our favorite restaurants.
Very accommodating for a very small wedding party. A lovely lunch.
Single diner, stuck at the back next to the toilet even though there were 2 seat walk in tables available in the conservatory but still it was a nice meal and good service
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.
Excellent food ( the portions aren't small, but they're also not big...), great service and amazing romantic vibe.
Amazing as always
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.
The food was just ok for the price. The ambience and design of the restaurant is good.
The food was great, and we had a nice evening. The service was very attentive for most of the evening.
Great outdoor garden dining with old beverly hills residence and it is especially gorgeous at night with lightings and plants on brick walls.
Waiter was not attentive, forgot birthday celebration. Won’t be coming back.
Pretentious. Poor wine selection, especially by the glass. Overpriced. Surprisingly limited menu. Just not the same as it was years ago.
AS always, our entire experience was brilliant!
Amazing Restaurant! Brought my wife here as a surprise for our 7th Year Anniversary and she absolutely loved everything about the experience. Amazing service!
This place is absolutely amazing. From the service, the atmosphere and obviously the food! The workers there were very attentive and perfectly balanced. Also to anyone not knowing what wine to pick, I would recommend the Pinot Noir.
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
Service was perfect. Food prepared as requested. A most enjoyable evening.
Wonderful!! Food and service is great.
Good selection on the menu.
Patio dining .
Always a wonderful experience. Beautiful courtyard.
I mentioned it was our anniversary on the reservation and the table next to us had rose petals on theirs and we didn’t ... it was a little awkward.
The fish I ordered was under seasoned and had bones in it.
The tuna tartare didn’t have a fresh taste to it.
The bread brought out was hard crispy which made it seem old.
I’m happy we went but I’m not going back especially at that price point.
Her lobster was good though.
There was a leak from where we were seating!
At the beginning the server was checking on us often as the time past by least amount of attention was given to us!
We had keep asking where’s our server from out awesome busboy!
Overall it was OK!
Was expecting a lot more when I told them in advance we were there to celebrate a birthday!
They didn’t make it special it was too plane!!
Very Poor Service. Unacceptable Food. Would NEVER return.
Outstanding food, gracious service, in a beautiful indoor/outdoor setting. Great place for a special occasion.
After decades of celebrating our family’s most precious milestones at Il Cielo, the quality, personalized service, and ambiance so unique to its own,, has never wavered. There is a Hollywood history to this building which the owners have always held in reverence not exploitation - a rarity in today’s service industry. To date there has not been one restaurant which reaches beyond the hold Il Cielo has on all we hope for in a dining experience.
The whole experience was amazing from the food to the host even the General manager was amazing! He took the time to explain dishes to us and really made us feel welcomed. I would definitely comeback!
If you can - choose to sit outdoors - the patio is lovely - an oasis away from the LA hustle. The food was delicious . Authentic Italian cuisine done perfectly. The sea bass was a favorite as was the bolognese. I think you could choose any meal and be delighted.
Il Cíelo is a lovely restaurant for any occasion. The food is great and the service is on point . It’s a special quaint restaurant. Highly recommend!
It’s a romantic place, however, if you want excellent food, avoid here.
My dinner companion had the LA week menu and enjoyed it very much. I had pasta with seafood and Loved it. The ambiance is a 10. We sat in a corner of the large patio and there was no noise.
the food and service was excellent. thank you so much
The ambience cannot be beat! Loved the service!! Food was ok
The food and service were very good. It was a lovely afternoon.
Delicious craft cocktails and an excellent wine selection. Lamb shank with polenta was tender -
the polenta was creamy and flavorful. Two risottos
, one with mushroom , the other with lobster were unique and delicious. The only miss of the evening was the pasta with seafood which was supposed to be in white wine sauce with tomato concasse and instead had a completely marinara-type sauce which overpowered the fish. Tiramisu just average. Food good but too expensive for what it was. Great service, though.
It was very good!!!
Food had a good presentation but nedd lil bit more flavor i order lamb shank i think it was really tender but lil tasteless polenta was great. Calamary too soggy
the food was not very good. For that price there are many other good choices.
Seamless service, good food, romantic ambience
