We went there for the high reviews and everyone recommending this place. I had the marinated Halibut ( ceviche style), was nice , but the octopus was hideous, had these white things in it( originally for its suction), they were never removed, and it had fatty skin. It made me repulsed to ordering octopus ever again! My BF had supposedly the quesadilla, it was nothing special or mind blowing, mediocre. The only good about the place is the service and the drinks .

Unbelievably delicious, however don't go wandering in thinking it's going to be a run-of-the-mill mexican restaurant. Casi Cielo is at its heart, a Oaxacan-Mexican restaurant, meaning that they specialize in regional Oaxacan food. They do, however, have tacos but as previously stated, tacos that are well known throughout Oaxaca; combine that with their extensive tequila and mezcal list and you will be sure to have a good time. To top it off, servers are well versed in the menu, ingredients and bar program, so any question you have, they can definitely answer

this was the first time they had brunch and they nailed it! the duck and corn waffle was delicious! the corn waffle was a bit sweet, the duck confit was perfectly cooked and so flavorful. The kids breakfast was large and came with a dollop of cotton candy on the pancakes.... but it melted before it got to the table. I tried the lupita which was a mimosa with mezcal and it was a great twist on a traditional mimosa. Everything tasted wonderful, Brandon was our server and he was so knowledgeable and was just awesome !! we will be back!!

It was recommended by some friends that had celebrated their wedding anniversary. Our waiter, Brandon was amazing! He was attentive and made our first dining experience there awesome. In fact, the whole staff was great. We observed that other waiters/waitresses helped each other out. We really loved the octopus appetizer. My husband had the duck tacos. There was an ample serving of duck and we could've shared this entree. I had the lamb entree and it was a little on the salty side, but still enjoyable with the creamed potatoes. Lastly, we had the chocolate lava cake, which seemed to be a favorite of other guests around us too. Overall, we did enjoy the atmosphere and food at this restaurant. We"ll definitely return when life is back to normal after COVID-19 social distancing. Be safe and stay healthy!

A very good follow from "ATLANTA EATS" tv show...authentic servings, tasty cocktails, easy free parking in the deck (or valet). NOT your typical tex-mex dining option. Highly recommended, albeit a lil'pricey.

Es una experiencia total, es sentirse en el DF en Polanco, real auténtica cocina Mexicana Gourmet.

El respeto por los sabores, texturas, la delicadeza de la elaboración, colores, el proceso, se puede sentir el aroma Oaxaqueño...es todo, este restaurante fue pensado, ideado y planificado milímetro a milímetro, fue madurado como el buen mezcal.
Cada bocado te deleita te transporta a otra dimensión.
Finalmente en USA van a conocer al sabor de Mexico lindo y querido. En Buena hora!


Delicious. Truly a fine dining experience. Style. Ambience. Flavors. All perfect. The waitress was sweet as sugar, too. Enjoy!

Open Table Feedback: I did show up early for my reservation and was seated 45 minutes after my reservation time. I do not understand the email about missing the reservation. Perhaps the restaurant lost the reservation since they did not find us at the bar and we were not seated until I asked at the hostess desk after 45 minutes or more of waiting.

The grilled octopus was new for us but surprisingly tinder and really good. Salsas were awesome. Skirt Steak was amazing. I’m do not like spice at all so the Mahi Mahi taco was too hot for me but would have been very good otherwise.
A little loud but our table was placed perfectly to be as quiet as possible.
Left phones at home so no pictures!

Restaurant, bar, and servers were all excellent. I was very disappointed though in how long it took to get a table. Our reservation was for 9pm, we checked in 10 minutes early, but were not seated for 45 minutes.

Made reservation for 6 at 8:00. We arrived on time. Didn’t get seated until 8:40. That’s never happened to me before. I know there’s some variability and a short wait would’ve been understandable. The restaurant was busy. But they could’ve handled it better, offered to buy us a drink, politely moved the tables more quickly, etc.

Food was very good though. And service, after we were seated was also excellent.

First I have to say, the food and drinks are outstanding! Every time I have been here, it has been consistent and delicious!! Service has always been on point as well, but last night we had a bad experience after a very fun evening of eating and drinking. Basically, while chatting and winding down our meal, we were asked to leave by the manager. The manager even offered us a "tour of the kitchen" as a reinforcement to leave so they could seat others who were waiting. This was at 8:30pm and our reservations were at 6pm. I still had wine in my glass and the 4 of us were enjoying our evening after appetizers, drinks and our entrees and were close to being done. It did not seem that we were overstaying, but it was embarrassing and a we felt belittled. Just wanted to share that.

Wow. Flavor upon flavor, beautifully balanced dishes. My best meal in 2020 so far. Lubina, lamb and langoustines plus octopus, langoustine carpaccio and halibut carpaccio with Serrano as first courses. Drinks creative and excellent. Going back for the tacos.

We love the unique Oaxacan food and cocktails here. The service is friendly and professional and the space is nice. We were taken to a table right under a speaker and asked to move to a booth and this was quickly accommodated.
