Decent Meal

I've visited this restaurant twice. The first was in 2013. The food was delicious, the service was fast, and the margaritas were great. My second visit was just a few weeks ago. We hit some unexpected traffic and the hostess very graciously saved our reservation even though we were late. The... read more

The guac and chips and the ceviche are both spot on tasty. It's a tight space with room for improvement on the comfortable continuum but still a nice place. Enjoy!

Our son suggested we try Matador as he had been there before and enjoyed it. There were three of us; we started with the guacamole, which is a good but somewhat bland. The pico de gallo is delicious, so we combined the guac with the pico and made a tastier concoction. The chips were also very good. We ordered four... More

Hubby and I dropped in without a reservation during the Wayne Music Fest. The staff was friendly and managed to squeeze us in after about a 20 minute wait. We were seated outside, which was perfect for watching the 7:00 jazz performance. Because of the music festival, the place was definitely overwhelmed. Our guacamole came out after the other plates,... More

It's Wayne so you would expect it to be expensive but good. Matador hits the first but misses on the second. The drink menu was lackluster with a lot of choices but nothing too interesting except the $90 margarita (WOW). The house margaritas were just fine. We had a flat bread pizza and crab quesadilla. Both were lacking on the... More

Consistently good restaurant with a great range of cocktails. The table side guacamole is always a must have. Summer al fresco dining was very nice

1st time Sat dinner visit with husband. Good, refreshing and interesting fruity margarita flavors and various small plates to try. Server was fairly helpful in terms of answering questions; but failed several times to mention the spicy seasoning which we associate with Mexican food, not Spanish. Average prices. Although we were seated inside, many people were sitting outside, enjoying the... More

As always - great service, really good food - good drinks and a good time had by all. Tapas are really good, lots of variety. Recommend the paella.

We have been to Matador several times for either dinner, drinks or apps. While the food quality is good, the portions are small, even for a Tapas place. Drinks are very expensive compared to other local restaurants. We've been to Spain and have experienced authentic a Tapas bars and Matador is just not at that level.
