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.

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.

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.

Someone threw huge rocks from the second floor of the hotel onto the dining area nearly hitting patrons. We had to wait an hour for our first course of tasting menu after we ordered.

Beautiful ambience and outstanding service. Menu was a bit limited though. Not that big a fan of high end pizza and tacos especially at a restaurant of this stature and reputation. Great for special occasions.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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
