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.
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).
Amazing tasting menu. Recommend the full "experience tasting" and not the abbreviated "journey tasting." Absolutely incredible. Nothing more needs to be said.
Amazing time at El Cielo, the Experience was definately worth the price.
The presentation was beautiful, like a picture from a magazine. The taste was good but not exceptional for the price that you pay. I understand everything is a matter of perspective and taste but I’m not a fan of a cold soup or food unless is not a ceviche for example. Also I don’t know if is done on purpose but the food took a long time in between plates. The waiter was also very good and helpful. This is a constructive criticism cause I love the initiative, idea and look i would definitely love to come back with friends or family to go trough a better experience.
Excelente comida. El personal super amable. Una experiencia inolvidable!!!
My friend and I were in Miami and wanted to try something delicious and different. The food at this restaurant was amazing and so much fun to experience. We did the Journey menu, I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a fancy night with a unique experience! The chocolate massage in the beginning for you hands was delicious and will keep your hands soft all night!!
The most amazing culinary journey in Miami!
Un lugar excepcional con lo mejor de la auténtica comida Colombiana. Atención de 10!!
Simply spectacular. The food and the service are out of this world. Very proud of this young and talented Colombian chef for creating such an exciting and different experience for the senses.
Outsatanding service. They make you feel welcome and comfortable. They pay attention to every detail, flexible with the tasting menu and the wine paring. They serve every course respecting the right timing and providing the proper explanation. The Expiriece menu is well designed and it has an adequate balance respecting the product and it’s colombians roots. It’s envolved every senses - including eat liquid chocolat with you own hands!!! Delicious !!! The only aspect that they have to improve is the wine list, although they do a great job with the wine paring
Haven't been "WOW'd" by a restaurant like this in awhile. Everything from the presentation to the service to the actual good was flawless.
Me and my girlfriend had a good time until it hs gotten to the point where we were heading to our last course. The manager presented the check without asking for any coffee or tea and we felt uncomfortable having 2 staffs just being ready to clear the table and hoping we would leave soon even before 11pm.
El Cielo is far from being a top tasting menu restaurant. I can name 20 restaurants that I have been to that are "real" tasting menu experiences. El Cielo makes small servings of "good/regular", but common food and calls it a tasting menu.
The best thing is the chocolate hand wash and the kindness in serving but the food was far from expectation
Expect to pay $300 for a couple. But it is so worth it.
Great sensorial experience, eveerything was delicious.
The restaurant is really nice, service is amazing, the choco therapy is cool! But other than that the food is not good at all!
Is really expensive for what you get and not amazing food, i dont mine to spend money as long as is really and experience, but is not.
It was an AMAZING experience, from appetizer to dessert.
Creative and fun, small yet innovative and tasty plates
Absolutely spectacular experience. Service was impeccable. Truly a magnificent evening. Every course was a memorable moment as described by the server. An absolute must for fine dining in Miami
Such a very good environment, the food was very tasty and very high experience. The costumer service was just perfect for transporting at the most peculiar way to enjoy food and a good moment .
Beautiful restaurant, friendly knowledgeable wait staff, excellent creative food and presentation. Expensive, but it was anticipated. I would go again on a special or romantic occasion.
Wow!!!! Amazing experience in Miami. You should go!
Nice but not awesome. The chef is getting there but not crashing it. Nice place, could be better and take more advantage of the location . Experience above food. Service not 100% there. The main waiter could be more dedicated.
