This is probably my 7th or 8th meal at Matador and it won’t be my last! Great service and the flavors are perfect. Truffle pizza, chicken tacos and spicy peppers served with bread were all excellent.

Food was OK, but they wouldn't accomadate my wife's request to hold the mushrooms on of their specialty pizzas. Offered her a children's menu cheese pizza instead. Insulting. Guess pizzas are pre-made, not made to order. Won't be returning.

Very big fan of other Jean George restaurants, 2nd year in a row eating hear during Art Basel. Honestly very disappointing.
The bar has a great vibe and great scene. The restaurant is something else it feels very serious when you work into the room.
We had high expectations. It just is not a what we think a fine dining experience should be. Our waitress was very mechanical. We felt like perhaps there were other places she rather be. Out appetizers were ok. We had Shishito peppers as one . The best I can say were they were ok. Our waitress asked how we liked our appts when we replied honestly she looked away instead of saying she was sorry we were not happy. We then had Brussels sprouts which were amazing maybe the best we ever has. We had delicious arroz con pollo . The beef tenderloin was dry. The manger came over ( not having to do with any conversation with the waitress) He wanted to know how we enjoyed our meal. He was very sincere and then comped our peppers. ( was not looking or needing that) We were disappointed with wait staff , vibe and mixed big as far enjoying our meal. Not up to expectation or our experience at any other Jean George restaurant we have been to.

We had a delightful experience. Our server was friendly attentive and well informed. He guided us through the menu - made wonderful suggestions. The octopus, steak, Brussels sprouts were our favourite dishes. And dessert was just right - a couple of cookies to top off our meal. Finally our waiter treated us to molten lava cake for our friend who was celebrating his birthday. A very nice experience!

OMG the food is still amazing! I was worried as I heard Chef Jeremy left - but everything was outstanding as it always had been in the past! Also going on a weeknight was great because there was no wait for our table. Place was not super busy though which surprises me - it is just so good.

Great visually appealing restaurant inside, beside the well appointed bar. The cocktails served in gorgeous Baccarat crystal glasses made the start of our evening very special. $16 Moet Champagne for Happy Hour (7-9pm). Outside veranda seating is also nicely lit and beautiful. Splitting dishes is the norm here, so enjoy. The by-the-glass menu is unique and sometimes interesting with some glasses over $40/each.

My husband and I stayed at the Edition hotel for 6 nights and we ate at Matador Room for THREE of them! It was that good. Not one dish was disappointing. Some must have dishes - Lobster and Rice, Vegetables and Rice, Sirloin Steak, Spicy Shrimp, and, most importantly, the Truffle Pizza! The chicken tacos are solid but not as special as the other dishes. The Brussel sprouts and potato sides were very good. The service is impeccable and, if the weather is nice, I recommend eating outside. It's beautiful out there and it's fun to grab a drink at the bar beforehand. The spicy margarita was very good (better without the Cointreau). The atmosphere in the inside dining area is very cool too - fun fact, the chandelier is from the original restaurant when it was built in the 1950s!

Food is spicey, but not too spicey. Server was polite. Avocado pizza was the weakest dish we experienced. Achiote Pork tacos, the strongest. Dessert tres leche was far too sweet, could not even finish with 4 people. Churros were excellent.

The staff seemed tired and uninterested. The food was amazing. The ambiance wasn’t the same with the poor service, not a single smile and not s single look that would indicate if anybody cared how the dinner was. The food was fabulous though, just the service as bad as it gets.

Waiter didn’t seem to want to give me the time of day, but seemed to have plenty of time for the table next to us. Maybe it was because they were older and ordered a $150 bottle of wine while I was sticking to one glass. Then he offered that table a tasting menu which I would have been very interested in because I like to try new food and places no matter what the cost is.

Fantastic dining experience at the Matador Room. We were seated in sunken portion of the dining room which at first felt intimidating but then my husband explained to me the dining room is shaped like a bull fighting ring and we are in the ring; hence the name the Matador Room. I looked around, the decor is classy and elegant but one can totally envision what it must feel like standing in the middle of a bull fighting ring and feeling the adrenaline and anticipation of a raging bull...Bravo!

I also love that all their dishes were all meant for sharing and they were all scrumptious but definitely the Cinco Jotas Jamón Ibérico was my favorite dish of the night.
