The experience was unique comment the service over the top, and the food simply outstanding. The staff could not do enough for us. Normally I don't like tasting menus because it lasts too long but in this case it flew by. Everything was perfect.
Spectacular dinner. Can’t wait to go back!
Wonderful and very creative evening. An absolute pleasure to meet Chef as well!
The best culinary experience I've had
Over priced, over hyped, all fluff and no stuff
To sum up in one word:disappointing. Service was terrible. Wait time to get just water was ridiculous. They forgot one of the plates and the most famous one at that. I had to tell them when dessert was about to come that they missed one of the appetizer dishes. The waiter was so uninterested and bored it was laughable. Completely unacceptable for such an expensive restaurant. I have been to a Michelin star restaurant in Paris where we paid the same and there is of course no comparison with the service. The food was not bad but wow the service was atrocious. Me and husband are foodies and have been to many restaurants in Miami and this might be the worst restaurant we have been to.
Children should not be allowed at nigth. Too noisy
Me encanto porque más allá de su comida y atención es toda una experiencia, donde despierta todos tus sentidos
We went for my girlfriend’s birthday. We had the “Experience”. It was absolutely beautiful from the first course down to the last. Everything was delicious and the meal itself was so artfully presented, every course and “moment” serving a purpose. It was truly a magical experience! Expensive but highly recommended for a special occasion!
We have been to El Cielo In Bogota, Colombia two months ago and truly we were trying not to compare one with the other. But we were a little disappointed, for the price we were expecting the same service. The music was loud, people were loud, the staff was rushing to serve all tables and the food tasted very normal. I was expecting way more from this restaurant in Miami, it truly disappointed us. Won’t be going back to this location, I will however go to the other ones when I travel. I just felt like this was some repeated speech they gave from table to table.
This is the second time I've been to El Cielo - the first time was a business dinner and I've now brought my wife. Watching her face as warm chocolate was poured over her hands in the "Chocotherapy" was worth the price alone! My wife had the "Pescatarian" while I enjoyed "The Experience" - each a Prix Fix selection of about a dozen courses. Only two dishes differed across the two menus. My wife loved her scallop while I enjoyed a perfectly cooked slice of duck breast. She enjoyed the prawn while I had a pork rillet. The entire meal was an experience for the eyes, the mouth, and all the senses. Truly memorable and El Cielo is on our list of favorites to return to whenever we are in Miami.
Excelente comida, presentación, ambiente y lo mejor los shows. 100% recomendado y que más que el chef es un orgullo Colombiano.
I expected more value for money based on the website. Not a Michelin star level but for people that have never been to a Michelin star restaurant a Nice but expensive experience
It was an amazing experience, food, service, environment, and music.
Very creative food with an amazing taste than you never will think that taste so incredible!
A bit noisy. Some food was great but another not really. Waiters were nice but service too slow, waiting half an hour between plates.... when we saw a waiter mixing water with ice in a jar with his own hand absolutely didn’t feel like coming back... not sure they served it, but just in case...
The best restaurant in miami by all means.
Me encanto ,es un lugar encantados romantico una comida exclusiva y equicita
Great experience...don’t miss it
The time stops...we spend like 2 hours that seems much less...
Great signature moments....everything was perfect
By far the best restaurant in Miami. I was amazed by how the Chef can creat such Menu and provide the experience we had.
It was my gf bday and we had the best dinner celebration since we have met at El Cielo. Already planning to come back for my Birthday in the next month with my whole family.
Amazing experience, worth every dollar. Food, service are delightful. Will come back many times!
The best experience!!! Thank you for everything!!! Amazing :)
After we finished eating, we were asked to move to the bar because there was a large reservation and they needed the table. We were enjoying a nice conversation and finishing our drinks... we were almost done and this was just a big disappointment for such a famous restaurant. We felt a bit unwelcomed.
Loved every minute of this experience. Worth it 100%.
Fue una experiencia única.
El personal del restaurante muy amable y atentos a nuestras inquietudes.
Cada plato era una sorpresa
Lo único es el acceso al restaurante que no está bien explicado, nos tomó 25 minutos tratando de encontrase el lugar...
I went with my mom to celebrate her birthday which was not acknowledged l. Additionally, as the first people in the restaurant, we were handed dirty menus. We ordered cocktails which arrived during our third course. When the server came to take our order was when he remembered there were three dishes that were different than what was printed on the dirty, outdated menu. My mom doesn’t eat mushrooms, which we told him and he said there was nothing to worry about. One of the dishes was duck with morels. After placing it in front of her, he realized she had told him no mushrooms and asked her if it would be ok to just leave it. We told him no, he left my dish and took hers and then came back with a modified dish and blamed the kitchen for not doing it correctly. My duck was inedible. It had so much sinew that I couldn’t even cut it. I left it and no one ever asked me if there was anything wrong with it.
When the dessert was served, we were forgotten. We had to call the server’s attention for the bill. He sent the hostess with it, who knocked over a water glass on us while delivering it with no real apology. We paid almost $270 for two people and when we left, we did not even get a good night.
This was our second time. We will never return.
The best restaurant experience we’ve had in USA. The service was stunning. Everything is highly detailed , original and perfectly performed. Our waiter Edgar is very professional and friendly.
Overall excellent !!!!!
We went to celebrate our 33th Anniversary. It was perfect!
From the moment we walked in there we felt welcome.
The service and the food was excellent and detailed like expected.
We went last year to the one in Medellin for our Anniversary and we r thinking next year to go to Bogota or Washington to continue with the tradition.
Definitely will recommend if you want to experience a different extraordinary restaurant 🥂
Excellent experience food was amazing and service was So good
Una experiencia unica... lo recomiendo. Un ambiente muy acogedor!!!
Great! Best restaurant ever. An incredible experience.
AMAZING experience and WONDERFUL service... the staff is incredibly knowledgeable about each course. Bartender was awesome and a true mixologist. She made me delicious cocktails that were outside of the menu. The food was EXQUISITE. It was by far the best dinner and experience I’ve ever had in Miami. We got to meet Juan Barrientos (the chef) who is incredibly sweet and humble. I will definitely be going back!
Servicw is the best I’ve experienced !
Very professional servers
Loved our experience here!
We had “Experience” tasting menu and it was fun and entertaining! Very interesting concept! Perfect for a special date or if need to impress someone!
Amazing experience, intimate and romantic.Food was delicious and the
I would never call myself a food critic, there are professional people for that, however i am a food enthusiast that knows the basics of cooking as i spent countless hours in the Kitchen.
El Cielo’s prices are a Joke, and the service for such tasting menus should be impecable, it is not the case
Chocolate experience ... fail
Instead of taking and displaying pictures of him everywhere, Manuel Barrientos needs to head back to Culinary school and learn the basics of serving decent meals
Great service. We had one vegetarian in our group and they took care of their need too without any issues. The food was awesome. The eggplant mouse was the best presented.
Amazing culinary experience for all the senses!!! Exceptional artistic presentation, celebration of taste, spices and colors! Can’t wait to go back!
Awesome experience, greats views espectacular food
Una experiencia culinaria extra sensorial. Definitivamente vuelvo!
