Beautiful decor, you feel like you are dining outside with all the plants and rusting feel. The staff is incredible, professional, friendly, and accommodating. But the food is definitely the star here. The experience is he menu we chose and it was exactly that, an experience. From the very first plate they bring to the table, to the very last,... More

I can't say enough good things about El Cielo!! The dinner was truly an experience, and tasty as well. We ended up paying about $75pp (including a bottle of wine) and felt this dinner would have cost easily $200pp in the USA. The staff, the ambiance, the plating, seriously all phenomenal. PRO TIP - be careful with the nitrogen candy... More

Excellent place to dine if you are open to new flavors and dining rituals. Fourteen-course menu and Six pairing wines makes this a fabulous experience. Be careful with nitrogen dessert.

First of all, we are Colombians, so we are used to bad service). However when we go to a restaurant where the bill comes up to 200 USD we expect impecable service. My husband reserved a table at el Cielo por my birthday. After sitting at the table for about 15 minutes no one came to offer a menu, my... More

This amazing restaurant will not be for everybody but everybody should consider experiencing this restaurant once. It is a odyssey through the elemental features of food which are found in Columbia. It is a 13 dish expression of the various tastes, textures and means of preparation that food in this amazing country can be configured by. The accompanied wine tasting... More

This is such a great experience. It was recommended to us, and we stopped in. The food was all so experimental. It is almost more unique than I can describe. We were not famished, but everything looked great. We both had a nine course tasting. Everything was terrific. Light and unique flavors. Terrific presentation. Great service. Not to take anything...

I had the nine moment lunch with two generous glasses of wine (served in the finest wine glass ever) and a macchiato--and it came to $63--a rather heavenly bargain. The décor, the service, the serving pieces, the food and presentations, the rituals--all match! In New York, this would be pleasing and popular for $200. Truly three hours of all that... More

Very pricey, but also one of a kind. This is not a "hey let's grab dinner" place. It's a plan plenty ahead, get dressed up, and have a unique culinary experience place. This is a tasting menu of either 9 or 13 courses of molecular gastronomy. Prepare to spend some time here enjoying foods you may know, but that you've... More
