Sierra Mar Restaurant~Worth It?

We will be staying at the Post Ranch Inn for 2 nights in September. The actual evening of our 25th wedding anniversary we were going to have dinner at Sierra Mar and the next evening at Cielo. Cielo sounds worth it but having second thoughts on Sierra Mar. Eat at Cielo the eve of our anniversary and then where?

We have only dined at Sierra Mar once and it was very worth it! The food, service, views are amazing. I would not miss a meal here. Cielo is good, but not on the same level as Sierra Mar. Enjoy your stay at the PRI, I would love to hear aobut it upon your return! :)

Still dine at Cielo, we like to sit out on their patio, the views are amazing here. One time we just went for appetizers before our meal at Sierra Mar while we were waiting for them to open. :)

I just have to pipe in and say YES, they are both worth it. I have dined at Sierra Mar 5 times and Cielo probably 6 or 7 times. They are both special and wonderful. The first time I went to Sierra Mar I was blown away. It was the most incredible dining experience I had ever had. Enjoy!

We have dined at many restaurants in the Monterey/Carmel area and I would say that Sierra Mar and Pacific's Edge at the Highland's Inn are my 2 favorites! :)
