We were staying at the Woburn Hilton during a recent trip around New England and the heavens opened on us while trudging around Salem.

As we were staying in the hotel and the rain showed no sign of abating, we decided to book a table at Matadora, the on-site restaurant.

Although this was the most expensive meal we had in out 10 night trip, I can honestly say that this was some of the best Tapas I have tasted, including many a visit to Spain. A highlight for me was the Charred Galician Octopus.

Excellent service, great food. What more could you ask for ?

Paul, what a thrill to read about your recent experience at Matadora! I guess we should be grateful for the downpour that kept you close to the hotel, and therefore brought you in for a meal. Thank you for the kind words about our unique, delicious menu offerings and our exceptional staff. We hope to see you again soon!

I stopped in for a drink or two and witnessed some of the best teamwork I’ve ever seen from 2 bartenders. Mary and Lori were KILLING IT! I sat on Mary’s side, but Lori greeted me immediately. Mary soon followed and made me the best old fashioned I’ve had in a good long while. I also had dessert and an after dinner drink and the service was friendly and inviting the entire time. I will DEFINITELY be back.

I was in Matadora shortly after it opened, And I think I left a five star review. It still has the great look, Airy lobby, Nice bar. And speaking of which, we did sit at the bar last night. We ordered a drink and then four different tapas. They all came out so fast! We had wanted to linger at the bar and have another cocktail, but it felt too rushed. My other complaint is that we ordered two different cheeses, they arrived on the same plate, two scant slices of each with only one tiny square of quince jam. $18 for four slices? Doh! The tomato salad was very good though! But if I go back, I won’t order the cheese again as much as I love it:(

It’s wonderful to hear that, despite some frustrations, our delicious food and beautiful decor still impressed you. We want all of our guests to be able to relax and enjoy both their meals and the ambiance, and I regret that you felt rushed. Additionally, if there was any part of your meal that you were dissatisfied with, we would have been happy to replace it with something more to your liking. Returning guests are very special to us, and I truly hope you will consider giving us another opportunity to provide you with a five-star experience.
