Cielo Restaurant Review

: Perched eight floors over the riverfront, Cielo isn't the highest restaurant in St. Louis, but the wide-open feel created by the floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive rooftop deck certainly gives diners the sense of having transcended the earth for awhile. The menu ranges from antipasti (octopus, beet tartare) to pastas such as carrot ravioli and arugula pappardelle, and NY strip steak and branzino with vegetable couscous. Although Cielo is in a hotel, it draws plenty of local curiosity seekers for the view over the Gateway Arch, especially after dark. The wine list has evolved in the right direction.
