Spectacular, delicious and amazing experience.
Perfect for a date night!
The waiter was not attentive. Further he forgot one of the courses in my Experience. Even after I mentioned it, he still left it out.
No comimos nada bien para ser un restaurante de alta gama
Great overall experience.
The food is way overpriced for what it is. There is NOTHING Colombian about this. The first two entrees were ok. The rest had no flavor at all. Paid $320 for 3 ppl. Not worth it.
An awakening of the senses. A unique experience. It’s more than just excellent food. It’s a trance experience through the enhancing of the senses. Loved it! How do I go back now to everyday food?
Amazing - 14 course "Experience" menu from having our hands washed in chocolate, to having coffee in the morning fog of the Colombian mountains. Just fantastic from start to finish!
I went to El Cielo for our anniversary dinner. Saying that me and my wife had an amazing time is an understatement. The table was arranged with rose petals for the ocassion which was a nice touch. The food was amazing, and the overall dinner experience, from washing our hands with cacao to a chocolate candle dessert as a present for our anniversary, was great. I highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion... it is definitely a unique experience.
I did a reservation for my birthday and it was noted but nothing spacial was done, the service was delayed because they thought my reservation was for 4 people, the were very sorry for the mistake , the whole food experience was good the only think that I don’t understand is why a mediocre bottle of wine start in $85, so many good French and Italian wine that you can buy anywhere for so cheap that I don’t see the point of this restaurant that doesn’t have a reasonable wine list. I can’t give them a five stars because overall decoration is not at the level of a restaurant with such a good chef reputation and most of all for not allowing us to have the whole experience of a gourmet dinner pairing an affordable wine bottle.
Best restaurant in the world. A unique experience that can not be described, it needs to be experienced. Service was excellent, food was delicious and very original. History accompanies every dish, as well as a combination of flavors that only Juan Manuel can create.
La comida es espectacular.
This was one of the best culinary experiences I have had in the US. Beautiful preparation and orchestration of courses throughout the night, but even better food. The combination of traditional Colombian flavors was as adventurous as it was intriguing. The experience will perpetually linger on our hands - this was an evening we will never forget. Very glad we stopped by this gem of a restaurant during our short stint in Miami.
It was wonderful “experience” to dine , everything was a novelty from the concept, the good, the ambience, the way it was served to the final coffee experience. A bit pricey. Would go again only if I knew that every certain time they change the menu or if they do a promotion for a second time around ...
Food and service are exceptional.
Quite nice environment and food with affordable price.
Will try again next time.
I hate to say it, but it's more show than substance. I've been fortunate enough to eat at top restaurants all over the world and this does not compare to any of them. The tasting menu is 60% sugar and I left hungry and somewhat sick from all the sugar. If you want a great meal, this is not the place. I feel like I could have had a superior meal at many Miami restaurants and at a quarter of the price. Not a fan. :(
If you are interested in a unique dining experience this is the place to go.
Best pizza in Miami.
Great experience overall.
Buen ambiente, buena presentacion. La comida es buena pero les sugiero que ofrezca una experiencia de cafe, ya que seria un buen complemento y Colombia tiene un cafe muy bueno.
The place, service and overall experience was incredible. We asked for the experience menu and it definitely was one. We plan to go back with family and friends!
This was a surprise to my girlfriend for our 3 year anniversary, and she went nuts. She has never heard of this restaurant and she loves chocolate. When you start of your night by washing your hands with chocolate and then being able to lick your finger clean, well that’s a night starter and if it’s not the best appetizer around then I don’t know what is!! Amazing experience and the food was great. For those that don’t like small servings/portions there’s plenty off as there is 9 courses.
A nice surprise
Very unique dining experience balanced by a surge of exquisite plate designs and amazing flavors...
An excellent venue for a special occasion; fabulous cuisine, very innovative and different. Staff brilliant from the moment the mime artist let's you in the door to when you depart after an evening of food adventure. I travel all over the world and this was truly one of my best culinary experiences ever !!!
EXCELLENT RESTAURANT FOR SPECIALS OCCASIONS!!!
An exceptional experience. The food, drinks and service were all phenomenal to say the least.
Great service, delicious food - a very unique dining experience overall.
Amazing food but extremely expensive.
We always try and make it to el Cielo every few weeks or atleast one time per month. The food is amazing, the view of the Miami River is amazing and when its not too hot outside we like to finish our dinner on the patio overlooking the river. The food experience is out of this world, highly recommended!
I heard about El Cielo from some coworkers. And as soon as they told me about it I knew I had to come. It was such an experience that I know I will go home and talk all about it. Food was amazing!!! And you have to try the lemonade if you attend.
Excellent service and the “explosion of flavors”, as it was explained to us, indeed a tasteful experience
Great for IG but the food lack depth
Most amazing meal we’ve had in Miami. Yes a bit theatrical - but every plate was exquisite and the service impeccable. An incredible culinary experience start to finish. The place for a special date / anniversary/ - would not change one item from the 14 course menu - we had the Peacatarian and the Experience menus.
Food was not the best comparandola con el precio de el total.
A very impressive evening , A total culinary experience , for those who appreciate art , photography , unique food , a quiet and cozy ambiance ... this is the perfect restaurant ... for those who wants to make a love one feel special this is the place to take them ... we definitely are coming back ... elegant but simple decor , warm lighting , delicious smells , our drinks were absolutely on point . Thumbs up to the bartender! and last but not least impeccable service ... very attentive servers ... later I found out the restaurant mission and made the experience totally worthwhile ... Dining with purpose ❤️
Best Colombian gourmet restaurant in Miami. Amazing concept with delicious food!
Me encanto el menu de degustación, estado una experiencia cenar ahi. Super recomendable.
The service and ambiance were great. The tasting menu is called "the experience" and it is accurately named. The food ranged from very good to excellent, with only one dish being a total flop (the ginger ice cream dessert). The other dessert (chocolate with mango) was great and the crab meat appetizer was spectacular. The liquid chocolate starter was lots of fun (though a bit better in Bogotá with the coffee and sugar).
