We dined at the Matador Room yesterday and everything was amazing. First off the ambience was spectacular and at the bar you could listen to an amazing Latin band playing. Our hostess Helina was super kind and personable and then Boris and Elizabeth took care of our table throughout the night. They were both incredible and fun to chat with. My date and I agree Elizabeth’s bubbly personality was the best part of the night! But the food was equally good! Will definitely be back the next time we visit Miami!

We booked a reservation but when we got there on time they said we had to wait 10 minutes because they just sat some other guests. When we got seated they sat us so close to another couple that we could not have a conversation. They should just make that a four person table. I could have touch anything on their table we were so close. The other couple were so loud and obnoxious that we could not even hear each other. When we said anything or ordered the other couple stated their opinions into our dinner and conversation. I know they can’t control another guest but there were less than 5 other tables taken in the restaurant. They did not have to seat us next to anyone else. Ans the couple said they had been there for two hours already. They had to have known how bad their behavior was. The wait staff stopped serving them drinks. The food was pretty good and came fairly quick. The steak was perfect but the chicken was soft squishy and bouncy. By the time we got our main we just wanted to leave. Our waiter was wonderful and kind.

Kelly our server was so cheerful and knowledgeable, such a delight! The Sommelier, Axl was so helpful and fun! And the manager, Alexandra was so kind! Not to mention the best part, THE FOOD! Amazing! So delicious! We started with the charcuterie board and sweet pea guacamole, then had the charred octopus, then had the wild caught shrimp(this was the only dish we weren’t super impressed with) and the Beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection. Overall we had an amazing experience food, staff, wine selection, and ambiance was a dream! Thank you Matador Room!

The absolute best meal in years. The chef spent time developing food to create a unique experience. The team made us feel special and welcome and top notch. Was such a pleasure to have an experience of feeling welcome, attended to…best group of people working together. Loved…loved…loved every minute.

Everything was really good. The only thing is the chairs are soooooo skinny unless you are a size 2 you will not comfortably fit in those chairs. It honestly was very uncomfortable and threw off the experience for us a little bit. You also need more fans outside. The food and service was impeccable. But as far as comfortability of the restaurant, you are seriously lacking.

Our last night in Miami. The food was exceptional. The service was great for the most part. There’s a lady by the name of Lizbeth or Elizabeth - she kept checking on us and she was fantastic. There was a server in a blonde ponytail that was an absolute snob - we spent over $300 on dinner for our anniversary and he made no effort to acknowledge us - but he went out of his way for 2 white couples. Maybe he didn’t think the black and brown people deserved the same attention or even an acknowledgment. The 18% is automatically added to the check, we added an additional $50 in cash tip.

Absolutely phenomenal does not even begin to describe our experience at The Matador. We ordered the tasting menu and were more impressed as each course came out. The restaurant both indoors and outdoors is beautiful and great for a romantic evening. Andres was our server and was absolutely amazing. I think he was just as surprised as I was when my boyfriend asked me to marry him. This restaurant not only is special now for that reason but also for the sheer fact that we both were blown away by the food, service and atmosphere of this restaurant. Honestly we would make the trip back to Miami just to visit this restaurant again.

Food and atmosphere was fantastic. Only downside was our server seemed overwhelmed. He didn't offer any cocktail menu or ask if we wanted anything besides water. It took him 30 minutes to bring my credit card back after paying. We thought maybe he lost the card because it took so long. Our overall experience with the food was great. We were just a little disappointed with service.

The pictures of meals etc were not representative of the actual food. Food is ok. Is way over priced compared to other good places in the area. Is not worth the money even close. Is a marketing and sales machine with very average food that is very expensive
