    Having dined at quite a few Michelin star restaurants around the world, we were so excited that Michelin came to Miami and recognized El Cielo. The entire experience was fantastic from the moment we were greeted at the entrance to the very last course. Service a superb and attentive without being over bearing. Michelin made the right choice with this one! Well deserved!

    If you are bored with fine dining, try chocotherapy here! Love how proud the chef is towards Columbian heritage and integrate a lot of whimsical details into the whole experience.

    Food was fantastic, tasting menu executed to perfection with 22 courses some of which were filler/snack courses but very good. Service was attentive and on point. Took 2 and a half hours to complete the tasting menu going at a good pace not too fast or slow. The wine menu left much to desire, with a small selection leaving us wondering whether there was a Sommelier.

    Definitivamente una experiencia diferente, seguramente vale la pena hacerla una vez en la vida, no estoy seguro de repetirla , algunas experiancias muy ricas pero otras muy simples. Demasiado alto el costo, si haces la experiencia de bebidas $150 es absurdo, no vale la pena, tenia un poco mas altas las expectativas.

    We did not know it was tasting menu only - Open Table has the regular menu listed when you book, but perhaps I missed the notification somewhere. Either way, we’re fine with tasting menus, but we were not prepared for that coming in. But, the food, service, and overall experience were spectacular - unlike any other experience I’ve had (this was certainly up there with French Laundry, Surf Club, L’Atelier, Stubborn Seed, etc.)! Our server, Santiago, was wonderful - friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I have already recommended it to several people, and I plan to come back again soon.

    A tasting menu of 18+ courses with excellent service and presentation. There are ***NO*** other options besides the tasting/experience menu. Very well worth the experience price point of $250- $325 a person. It’s meant to be an activity, if the price points causes a reaction I would suggest to look for another place to dine at.

    At no time of making the reservation, says that is an “experience” and not a regular restaurant and that the experience cost $197 pp, you should display it and make it clear what are you reserving.

    Portions were extremely tiny and the food overall lacked any good flavor. Additionally, the service was extremely slow and for what was charged is an utter joke. Total waste of time, energy and money.

    I’m always a bit baffled by this resturant. I love the gastro experience scene and I’m trying to figure out why It doesn’t wow me. And I guess it really is the price. I’m accustomed to paying $500-$1000 for a meal and I’ve eaten at some fabulous experiences both nationally and internationally. I really think about it and I think maybe it’s a bit of a gimmick resturant, the space doesn’t match the price. The staple chocolate hand soak, bread tree and the use of liquid nitrogen it feels a bit been there done that. I guess I would sum it up with it’s a good resturant to experience once, but nothing to write home about, I don’t really have a sense for the cuisine style or the journey that the chef is taking me on. I wanted to understand the dishes more and really feel like I’m part of something special that chef is sharing with me. The wait staff could play a big part of that. They are great as far as service goes but it’s nice to have a waiter who was at chefs right side through the creation process and can bring that information to us at the table. Vitantonio Lombardo is one chef exceptional with this.

    La experiencia es muy buena en cuanto a la comida se refiere pero el precio de la experiencia no compensa la calidad de la comida. No obstante a eso, yo tengo alergias a los mariscos y a pesar de que lo notifiqué al parecer algunos de mis platos se contaminó y llegué grave a mi hotel, es decir, se me cerró un ojo de la hinchazón, me puse roja, me picaban los ojos…gracias a Dios traje mis antialérgicos y me pude medicar. El servicio fue excelente de todas formas, pero no volvería.

    The gastronomical experience was unique, starting with the service was amazing, our server Santiago was 10/10, he explained and was very attentive, detail perfectionist, everything in our table was perfectly prepared and extremely clean. The bar prepared us the most amazing mocktails, The food was aesthetically pleasing and everything was delicious. The ambience was peaceful and private. We couldn’t have had a better experience, el cielo restaurant made this special occasion unforgettable. Again very thankful for my server Santiago, we were amazed by how perfect was every single detail of our service. Can’t wait to go to Colombia and try el cielo, meanwhile we will be coming back soon !

    I had a unique experience that I hope I never have again... The only aspect that puts the restaurant on a star level is the price. For the rest, there is arrogance for both the Chef and the attendants. A very bad night
