Service is lacking. Waited 30 mins for our second drink. The menu is about half of what is posted online and on OpenTable. Mostly fried food.
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.
Food was incredible!
The lobster was amazing. The snapper was adequate. I was disappointed with the charcuterie and cheese tray- they literally gave us ONE type of cheese.
We did the tasting menu and the food was absolutely incredible. The service was impeccable and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening out. We will be back !
Excellent food and service. Room, while historic, was a bit severe. Substantial mark up on wine. Up to 5x.
Vacation with family
Everything we ate was fantastic and we could have easily ordered many other items since everything looked so good.
Generally speaking, this is a high-end restaurant that serves well prepared meals. The lobster and tenderloin we ordered were both excellent. There were a couple of hiccups with respect to an appetizer (the braised short rib tacos), where we had asked that the habanero sauce be placed on the side, and the kitchen failed to do so. When we brought this to the server's attention, he graciously took the dish back to correct the issue. However, when the dish was returned to us, the habanero sauce was completely omitted, rather than made available on the side. At this point, we didn't bother with trying to correct the issue.
Good service and food which also looked pretty !
Excellent food. Great ambiance
Good food, great service!
Service, drinks, and food were underwhelming to say the least...
Amazing.... service was excellent, Maya and Murat were awesome and the food was delicious.... soooo good
I was recommended to go to the Matador Room plenty of times and I finally came with my boyfriend! The food was incredible & the service was wonderful. I can’t remember our server’s name but it was a female who was wonderful & on top of everything.
We loved it so much were going back tonight!
Nice place for brunch
The food was amazing. Service wonderful! Pretty setting. I would definitely recommend this restaurant
Celebrating an anniversary and the experience was wonderful. The Matador room is a treat to the senses especially taste. Everything we tried was exceptional and the service was outstanding. As with anything on the Beach lately however, it is a bit pricey.
We were in Miami Beach for a birthday celebration weekend and the Matador did not disappoint. Service excellent and they accommodated our request for a 30 min later sit down as we were in the bar enjoying a cocktail. Honored our request for a window table. Explained the menu and made good recommendations. Tuna Tartare and the shrimp dish excellent. Lovely bread and a tasty homemade habanero sauce to brighten up the oil. Filet perfectly cooked, ample size for two and mushroom side excellent. They surprised me with a fabulous birthday dessert after inquiring what sweet flavors I like. Everything just excellent.
Everything was tasty, highly recommended. Guacamole, red snapper and octopus were standouts.
What a disappointment dinner. It was supposed to be a birthday dinner. Felt like it was a speed train- with the food being rushed in in a very bad order. Bread was never brought... . We were urged to take too much food... and all was delivered in 50 min. Such a rushed dinner- no birthday
Fantastic food, great service, and great ambience on the terrace.
Highly recommend all the vegetables, black truffle pizza and chicken rice. Cocktails are also great.
Very lovely setting in the garden . We shared all of the appetizers and enjoy each our own entree. My snapper was very well cooked and the potatoe purée was very nice . Will definitely come back
Let’s just say they black truffle pizza will blow your mind . It was amazing can’t wait to visit again . It was a little hot outside maybe they can get some standing fans to help cool down the place . Food and atmosphere was very good aside from the heat . Had a few iguanas stroll by lol
Muy buena comida y atención
Great food and great service. Food was incredible and moderately priced.
I understand this is tapas but 20 to 30 minutes between dishes is a bit excessive. Had to ask for the check 3 times. To make up for the bad service they brought out guacamole and a dessert but it was at the end of the meal when we a) were full and b) would have just preferred to get out of there. They should have comped a couple dishes instead. Overpriced for the bad service. Also, it was a Friday night and surprisingly empty so there was no excuse for bad service. Won't return.
Food quality has decreased a lot. Menu need a uplift.
Wait staff was exceptional.
Fantastic venue. We were seated outside and the weather was perfect. Our waitress was attentive and always on top of our needs. If you have a large appetite, ask about the sides and options as the main plates are great but don’t come with a huge side (beer tenderloin). Good wine list and pricing was in line with what we expected to pay for this type of venue.
Brunch was surprisingly delightful. I've been to the Matador Bar several times at happy hour time and at night, but brunch certainly offers a different ambiance and experience. Both the goat cheese omelet and the coconut pancakes were divine. I want to slather lavender maple syrup on everything, including myself. One note: I did not know that seating for brunch is only outside--it does get quite toasty in the summer, even with the fans and in the shade. But if you're lucky, you may spot a celebrity or two ;)
Outstanding service. Very tasty and innovative food. Very much suitable for an occasion. The ambiance is very pleasant and the decor is really great. We order various tapas and asked to receive them in the recommended order. Evrything was absolutely great.
We went for a birthday. Took almost an hr to get drinks and overall were disappointed by the service.
The patio ambiance was so amazing especially while it rained. The food was exceptional and the service was fabulous. Very unique dishes and beautiful flavors.
Interesting and excellent food, great service, nice location, extensive wine selection, great desserts, expensive. A little difficult to select from menu, confusion about small plates, whether they were sized to share and main courses.
Awesome experience and would recommend this restaurant in the future and would return on my next trip to Miami. Kudos
Excellent food and price point. Both inside and outside are spectacular.
Upon stepping into the Matador Room you immediately feel transformed, relaxed, and coddled. The sunken floor makes you feel ready for whatever your taste buds you were going to experience. The seats are cozy, and the angled place mats made facing your dining partner a more natural posture. The presentation was clean, and the portions perfect. The fish taco is probably the best I’ve ever tasted. The Arroz Con Pollo is a great interpretation of the original but the crispy skin added such complexity and depth that would also make it unforgettable. I truly enjoyed this meal, and will surely come back soon.
Excellent service by Cara !
