Latin American
Elcielo is a vibrant and sophisticated Michelin-star concept created by Chef Juan Manuel Barrientos where Colombian ancestral cuisine, Latin-American ingredients, and modern avant-garde techniques are playfully blended into a collection of imaginative culinary experiences. This will be Chef Juanma's third location in the United States after Washington D.C and Brickell, both of which hold one Michelin star each, however at Elcielo South Beach, the dining experience transcends into fête extraordinaire as guests are welcome to enjoy a wide array of à la carte items or choose to partake in an decadent tasting menu. This interactive experience is meant to be served family style, encouraging guests to share and experience all the colors, culture, and flavors of Colombia.

    Mostly empty on a Monday and that's OK. Smallish plates of inventive Colombian inspired tapas mostly hit but the service (other than the friendly Somm) was bumbling to inept for a restaurant in this price range. Quoted $35 corkage on the phone but charged $50. Ordered 6 items, sold 2 more to be sure we had enough to eat, then another server commented on our hefty order. Yummy but somewhat underwhelming experience overall.

    Another amazing night at a SLS restaraunt. What a treat to have the place almost to ourselves. The Colombian flavors were outstanding. The service and the food was memorable! We will definitely continue to come here when we visit South Beach!

    Food was good overall. The adjoining building was hosting a party which was extremely loud and busy. Would not have gone if i knew that there would be such a loud and busy party.

    Compared to many other restaurants in SoBe, this was kind of a waste of time. Portions are tiny. The descriptions of menu items aren’t very good so most of the time we did not really know what to expect. We had 4 items and left hungry (two people). The most ridiculous thing was crab empanadas. 3 tiny hollow pastries shaped like crabs which we were supposed to fill with crab stew which was brought on the side. This isn’t food for kids and I prefer my food to not be deconstructed. Ambiance was boring - nothing special. Will not return.

    We made reservations for Valentines night and decided on the pre fixed menu; we had such high expectations of this restaurant! Unfortunately our expectations were not met at all, the courses took forever; service was not good, staff looked lost running around; food was also a big disappointment…. All in all, regret spending $500 bucks here and will not be coming back.
