Super busy night for a Thursday. Lovely dining room. We sat on the verandah which was picturesque but crowded. Menu was short on selections...pizza on the menu??? Food was $$$ for what they charge.

Wonderful time and incredible meal. Highly recommend the outdoor seating area especially if it’s great weather. All of the dishes are on the smaller side, but each one is incredibly prepared and delicious. Can’t go wrong with any of the fish dishes, including the raw shaved red snapper, tuna tartare, crispy gulf shrimp, and lobster entree.

Really lovely dinner all around. The staff of the restaurant (and the hotel in general) were so pleasant and helpful. The restaurant itself is really attractive, including the outdoor patio where we dined. The food was really delicious and we were able to try all of the dishes we wanted since the portions are small (like tapas). A couple things (the wild gulf shrimp, specially) could’ve been spicier and the glazed short rib tacos were a touch salty, but everything else we tried was a 10/10.

The ambiance is amazing! The food and drinks were excellent as well. Compliments to the chef. I had the grouper tacos and the pear salad and it was a perfect light dinner. I will def be back to stay at the hotel.

As for the service. Since majority of restaurants in Miami already add a 22% service charge, I have noticed the service is subpar. We didn’t receive any napkins or utensils until the food was out and we asked for them. The waiter just came once to take our order and never came by to check in if we needed anything. I guess this is the problem with setting a service charge, there’s no desire to go above and beyond for your customers... standard service would have been great at that point.

The most beautiful restaurant in Miami! And I think the best service? The hosts, wait assistants and servers were fabulous! This restaurant is CLEAN! The drinks were wonderful! The setting is breathtaking!!!! The pepper-appetizer was my favorite thing!!!!! The food is good, but the atmosphere is everything! I’ll be back here every time I visit Miami!

This was my second time at Matador Room went in 2015 and I remember it being amazing, and I was right. Matador Room is a must in South Beach! It is a little bit farther and away from the "main action" on Collins Avenue, but we were staying close to 17th street and was about ~30 mins walk.

First off, The Edition is beautiful with the simplicity and elegance. We requested to eat outside, and it's magical. The plants, flowers and lights truly bring you to another place.

We ordered the Sweet Pea Guacamole, the Avocado Pizza (which is a MUST it's very very unique and presented beautifully). the mushroom and grouper tacos, and lastly the seasonal vegetables with salsa verde. Every single thing was fantastic and even large in portion. It was 3 of us and we felt it was plenty.

Along with the dishes they give a nice spicy sauce for the table, we loved it so much we asked if they sell it anywhere and our waitress gave some for us to take home!

It was such a great experience, craving to go back again. Recommend to ask if you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view.

This is my second time here and still didn't disappoint. Just delicious all around. The arroz con pollo was probably the best I have every had and the cheese pizza with truffles is like no other. I always like to try new places when I travel, but the 2nd visit didn't disappoint and I'll be back for a 3rd.

Amazing evening here (as always) but tonight was even more special, celebrating a milestone birthday. Dinner was delectable and the grouper tacos are literally my favorite tacos anywhere. The service could not have been lovelier, with our server checking meticulously about our requests and dietary preferences and the host staff could not have been more welcoming and gracious. Thank you, Matador Room for a wonderfully memorable evening.

I wish I could give Matador Room more stars! We have eaten all over the world and were so surprised with the quality, taste and service! My husband even said it was the best meal ever! We did the taste of Spain (think that’s what it was called) it was so yummy and fun! The setting was idyllic set back amongst beautiful landscaping. BUT the service was really what made this meal so special for our family!! We were greeted so warmly by name and escorted right to our table then the pampering began! Michael our server is so unbelievably good at what he does and went out of his way to make the night so special! All of the wait staff appeared to be working so hard and with a smile on their faces! The manager even made an appearance. Thanks Michael and the rest of the team, we will be back!!

Disappointing. My wife’s main entree consisted of five small shrimp. The dish presented well and was tasty, but was extremely overpriced. I ordered the fish tacos which were good. We were in Miami for the week vacationing and tried multiple restaurants up and down Collins Avenue for dinner. The Matador Room was our least favorite. Be prepared to order a number of expensive small plates to experience a variety of tastes at this establishment.
