Latin American
At Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Matador Room, classics are reimagined. Latin cuisine, drawing on Spanish, Caribbean and South American flavors, is crafted with local, seasonal ingredients, and small and large plates encourage sharing and socializing. The historical dining room recalls the glamour of 1940s supper clubs with an original chandelier, and the ocean-view Matador Terrace allows guests to dine beneath a trellis covered with climbing bougainvillea.

What an amazing restaurant! My husband and I went for my birthday today, and we had the best time! Our server Cyd Marie, was amazing, super attentive and nice! The things she recommended for us to order were perfect! The food and drinks also were the best! We will be back again! And totally recommend this place to eat, drink, and have a great chill time!

Service was horrible. Had to ask for water to be refilled and for silverware. Main courses came out 30+ minutes apart so some people were completely finished with dinner long before anyone else’s food arrived. Was super disorganized and expensive for such poor service

Very enjoyable. The food was pretty good, but the dishes and drinks were very spicy. It was a bit too much for me. The broccoli was bitter (not sure how that could happen). I would go back because the service was great and the ambiance is top notch.

Date night in Sounth Beach. Beautiful decor. We chose to dine inside. You could hear really nice music from the lounge however you could still easily carry on a conversation. Our server, Brenton, was extremely well versed on the menu and how everything was prepared. We had several drinks and shared the quacamole, shaved snapper, and octopus. They were all very good but we liked the octopus dish so much we ordered a second one. We would definitely recommend the Matador.

I loved the hotel. I did not enjoy The Matador. The drinks weren’t good. For the cost, the experience was disappointing.

A nice restaurant, but service a bit poor with waiters talking too much, even asking guests where they are from. That should not happen at a 5 star hotel or restaurant. The steak too small but tasty and nothing included in the dish. But what I liked mostly it was a welcome drink. They said champagne but I think it was a proseco or else. A blond woman serving it in the entrance was very friendly. Compliments to her!

Last minute change of plans from Ft. Lauderdale to South Beach for 10th wedding anniversary. Staff greeted us with complimentary champagne and was attentive throughout the night. Food was excellent. Kudos to the Matador Room team!

Food was awesome, but our server didn’t seem like cares of serving us, we get sat and 5 min after he show up, he disappear, only Busser take care of us, is a shame because the food was great, was our anniversary and he forget doesn’t bring our dessert with any specials treat , when I make the RSV I highlighted Anniversary. Good restaurant to try if you are in Miami Beach. But hopefully you no get the same server.

Fantastic restaurant...you are given a glass of champagne on arrival. The waitress was very knowledgeable about all the dishes which was very helpful as one of our party was gluten free. Not the cheapest place but worth every penny and really good for celebrating a special occasion

Wonderful experience and very accommodating. Habanero hot sauce was a huge added bonus on the tables. Could have been a little hotter but I realize they have to extract some of the heat for the average table.

Someone threw huge rocks from the second floor of the hotel onto the dining area nearly hitting patrons. We had to wait an hour for our first course of tasting menu after we ordered.

Food ambience and service excellent. Only the soundtrack has to be changed. It doesn’t sounds good for the restaurant. Too popular. They need a sound designer.

Beautiful ambience and outstanding service. Menu was a bit limited though. Not that big a fan of high end pizza and tacos especially at a restaurant of this stature and reputation. Great for special occasions.

Matador is a great place to dine.
We have been often.
The staff changes all the time and never provides excellent service.

We normally consume 3 to 5 bottles of wine but the wines here over $ 100 makes it impossible. So we only do one.
