Pedro was an amazing server who made us feel welcomed from the second we arrived. All his suggestions were incredible. Beautiful ambiance too! The split pea guac was so fresh and delicious. The Red Snapper ceviche was also a second favorite.

This was the best dining experience we've had in a long, long time, seated on the terrace overlooking the pool. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive. We ordered Tapas style, four different dishes. Each time we finished one plate, the next arrived like clockwork. The last was the short rib tacos, which was like a main course, with a thick, tender portion of meat. We mentioned it was our anniversary, and the waitress comped the Sweet Pea Guacamole appetizer. We added a generous tip onto the 18 percent that goes on the bill. Can't wait to go back to the Matador Room/Terrace. Highly recommend starting with the Havana Old Fashioned or the Moscow Mule.

Tucked away within the Edition Hotel, we were impressed. From first to last — the bar service to the waitstaff to the chef — everything was top notch. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about each dish and we were pleasantly surprised at how many vegan options there were available on the menu. Homemade habanero sauce? Yes, please! And they graciously gave us more when we asked. We highly recommend the Matador Room for an delicious dining experience.

there should really be two reviews here. One for how we were treated and one for restaurant and food.
We made reservations weeks ago. we were told no requests for outdoor seating could be honored at the time of reservation... no prob. When we arrive on time we were escorted to an uninviting "beautiful" table. I asked if there was any outdoor available. I was told that because of the weather they were not seating outside....again no prob. The couple waiting after us was immediately escorted to the outdoor seating! I was quite bothered and no explanation was given but I was told if I wanted outside there would be a 45 min additional wait! Once the "senior person" was presented with my complaint miraculously a table was available where we wanted with NO wait! I hate these types of issues. They destroy the whole enthusiasm of the evening.
The outdoor area is beautiful especially if seated by pool steps. The inside is a nice room but very cold and quiet.
The food is basically tapas style. we order 4 dishes at the waiter's suggestion but asked that they don't come out at once. # of the 4 dishes came out within 5 minutes! So much for a relaxed, quiet evening romantic diner! The quality of the food and presentation was very nice. By serving all at once the table was overcrowded. Food got cold. There was nothing that was so outstanding to warrant the pretentiousness of the place.
Another issue is that the bus service removed plates from the table without asking if we were finished. this was also annoying.
I was very surprised by this service and care at a JG restaurant. To be honest i have had much better service and food at other far less expensive restaurants. I would return for the ambiance if seated outside. Too bad.

Of note is that they have a remarkable main bar and lounge area that is very upscale, chic, romantic, great bar tenders

The service and atmosphere here were very good. The beef tenderloin is extremely lemony, soda was flat, and cheese plate was good but tiny! We would not be back - there is much better food in Miami.

We found the food good, but nothing really memorable. Yes the chef has a 3 stars Michelin restaurant in Nee York, but this particular restaurant is very far from this level.

We went to matador for dinner.
Our waiter was very nice. Took our order for 3 entrees. First entree was delivered , but for some reason we never received the other 2 entrees.
Our waiter never came back to see how everything was so we weren’t able
to tell him they forgot the other entrees. It was 45 min later when we received our 2 entrees. Very strange!

Made a reservation to celebrate my wedding and honeymoon. Staff was incredibly helpful in making sure we had a spot on the terrace as requested. The server was incredible, he was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and always around when you needed him. Wife and I had an amazing dinner. Would definitely recommend to anyone who would like an upscale experience.

We had the tasting menu and some of the dishes were good or excellent and others like the signature chicken dish did not meet expectations. The chicken skin tasted rancid to us. We didn’t report it.
