I had no dea what to expect when I stopped in late on a Saturday afternoon, but I was greeted warmly and seated at a high top. I was immediately introduced to my server who made excellent suggestions, thorough descriptions of the menu items and could not have done more to make me feel that my patronage was appreciated. I don't relate at all to the negative reviews as my experience was wonderful. Tapas tends to be pricey anywhere, in my opinion, and so I'd suggest to anyone watching their budget to come back when you feel you can splurge a little on some really tasty dishes. The marinated steak cubes were incredible; I had some kind of egg/onion/potato dish (sorry I don't recall the name);delicious guacamole prepared table side and then a chocolate mousse which was heavenly. Yes, the tab was more than I'd usually spend by myself but I expected and accepted that when I realized Matador was a tapas bar. I plan on returning and can't wait o sample some of the other dishes.
