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.

The food was amazing !!! Great wine tasting also. Great atmosphere . The waitress was not happy that we asked for the Miami Spice menu though or the wine tasting that was On The Miami Spice Menu. We had never been to the restaurant and actually saw it on Miami Spice which made us feel uncomfortable. Why sign up for Miami Spice if you don’t really want to participate? They also didn’t have any nitrogen for the end of our experience which we were really looking forward to. Maybe it wasn’t part of Miami Spice ? We paid for it . Hmmmm.....

Unfortunately I would not recommend this location. Service is lacking. However; if you find yourself in 🇨🇴 Colombia; the Medellin location is outstanding. With waiters I that actually know the food, and are professionals in their field.

Juan Manuel did a fantastic job with his creations. Probably inspired by Barcelona cuisine with his own personal colombian touch....
Will come back again for sure.
I’d like to see him stop by the tables next time.

Overall great experience, however since I went to Cielo Bogota I can not compared (Cielo Miami) to Cielo Bogota. At Cielo Bogota it was an amazing experience.
Cielo Miami the employees needs to have more knowledge about the ingredients and their components, and provide in depth information about their wine pairing as done in Bogota.

Heard about this restaurant and wanted to try it out. Menu is ONLY tasting menu - no aka carte choices. I was not at all impressed with the food taste. Presentation is great. Salmon tartar was excellent - everything else was just ok. I’ve had better at other restaurants. Coconut rice is a special creation of the chef so jot the traditional Colombian dish, however it was more like rice pudding than anything else. Not a good choice. Deserts were not memorable. In summary, not worth the “experience” - will not be returning.

The service was very unprofessional and poor since we got there. We had a reservation, and they made us wait 50 mins. And once we were sitting the waiter came over with a lot of actitud. She was very stressed and looked like she was in a hurry, which made my table feel uncomfortable with her energy and tension. She messed up the orders as well. Also, after they made us wait for 50 mins, the waiter told us that the kitchen was going to be closed soon so we needed to order fast. What? So if the kitchen closes at 9:30 so why they accept reservations after 9pm? Shame! And the Food? Too exotic and just average.. it isn’t worth it.

Great experience. From start to finish, everything was perfectly executed. If you’re looking for a special moment with just one person or a lasting memory with friends, visit this restaurant. Every moment is specifically designed to impress. My wife and I were definitely blown away. Reminded us of another “food experience “ we had in Cape Town, South Africa. Don’t be critical of portions, let the whole experience create the memory you hoped for when you made your reservation.
