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.

Très bel endroit très bon accueil Malheureusement le repas n était pas à la hauteur . L entrée ( Guaquamole ) plutôt sympa , mais les 2 plats .... le lobster était fade et sans goût , et surtout , les tacos , la viande était très mal cuite . Une viande à bœuf bourguignon ne se fait pas snacker , si je peux me permettre , mais plutôt mijoter. Sûrement un jour sans, nous reviendrons lors de notre prochaine visite .

We are going in all Jean Georges restaurant and we love it, I can’t believe it’s a jean George’s restaurant, the food was horrible, service was horrible and over priced. Sometimes, I see mr Vongerichten and I will explain how is his restaurant in Miami

What a beautiful place! We sat outside with a stunning pool view. Really nice ambience. Service was great and everything was perfectly timed (we did the prix fix menu). Food was delicious. Good selection for wine with reasonable fine dining prices. Highly recommend.

Terrible service. We were promptly notified by our server that we only were allowed one bread basket. The staff was not friendly and even closed the outdoor entrance door in our faces. Food was subpar and tasted like cardboard. We will not return

We enjoyed the tasting menu and were accommodated a non-meat substitution. Everything was well-presented and delicious. 7 courses was more than we could conquer. Beautiful room as well

Atmosphere and food were fantastic! Only complaint is that it took at least 30 minutes before anyone came to our table to even offer water. Once we were able to order appetizers and entrees and the food and drinks started coming, it was amazing! Everything we ordered tasted was delicious!

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.

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.

I loved the hotel. I did not enjoy The Matador. The drinks weren’t good. For the cost, the experience was disappointing.
