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.

Great atmosphere and service. Some food items are a hit or miss. Honestly, given the price and chef's reputation expected better tasting food.

Desserts were fantastic.

The ambience was fantastic, hotel is stunning!!! Food was bad (short rib tacos didn’t have any sauce on them??) and service was sub par. My meal came out 15 min before the person my co worker which was awkward and that was after we received free guacamole because his drink took so long to arrive. We were enjoying catching up so didn’t complain, but to make matters worse, at the end of the meal we’re told we weren’t charged for the guacamole...???

I never write reviews but this was bad.

We always come for dinner dates to this restaurant. It’s so amazing. Now they offer a complimentary glass of champagne upon entering. The service is always top notch & the food never disappoints. The ambiance & view is to die for. We always feel at home when we visit here. All servers are amazing. Our favorite is the arroz con pollo & jalapeño basil margarita. Must try!

Horrible Experience. Waiter missing entire meal, no incentive to do a good job when he's receiving 18% gratuity automatically. Guacamole was great but drinks and other food ordered was average at best.

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!

The atmosphere at the Matador Room was awesome, especially since we were greeted with a sparkling wine toast for my friend's birthday when we checked-in for our reservation. The hostess was fabulous! Although our waiter was nice, I found him extremely condescending. Our group dines out often at different levels of restaurants (from expensive to street fare), but this waiter kept asking us if we "understood" even when we pointed out we knew what dining "tapas style" meant (we've all been to tapas restaurants before). Although some of the food was good (achiote pork tacos!), I felt the prices were quite high for the portions we received (especially since they were tapas). Those were the only two negatives about the restaurant. The bar area seemed awesome and I would love to return and hangout in this section of the restaurant. The cocktails and drinks were awesome and I would return to dine.

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.

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!

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.
