    Excellent service, outstanding wine and cocktail selection, very good brunch menu. The lobster roll and the pastrami special were just OK; the sweet potato puree/soup was great. So was the bread pudding and the pea vine salad with peas and radishes. Our friends that frequent the brunch weekly say that the fish sandwich is to die for.

    Matt’s is a long time favorite when dining in Pike Place Market, or downtown Seattle for that matter. The food is consistently excellent, the service above and beyond, the ambience quintessential Northwest, and the views of the Market are always delightful. You can’t go wrong, highly recommended!

    As always, dinner at Matt's is always wonderful. Our meal consisted of the cheese plate for starters, grilled octopus appetizer with hummus/yogurt preparation, King Salmon and Scallops as entrees, and the bread pudding and panna cotta for dessert. All were wonderful, but the octopus stood out as incredible. Perfectly cooked, the meat was not chewy, but still firm, and the glaze was so tasty. The sauce in the preparation was superb. Wonderful meal, and on par with the standard I always expect from this incredible place. It was the perfect setting to catch up with a friend from work for a long conversational dinner.

    So very friendly, yet professional service. Superb oysters. The halibut was perfectly flatly and moist with a nice crisp outer finish. The view from the windows feels like iconic Seattle. I love the old school feel—but it’s a wonderful modern vibe.

    A gem in the Pike Place Market! Beautiful views from every window. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive (not obtrusive). We had salmon salad and fishwich and oysters on the half with a bottle of bubbles. The salmon was cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. The salad was dressed lightly and very fresh. Fishwich was decadent with bacon and a brioche (?) bun. It was the perfect lunch for our trio.

    We dined pre-show, with a view of the Public Market, and it was a short walk to the Moore Theatre. Beet and carrot salad was excellent, and the salmon entre was as good as it gets, in the opinion of a salmon savant.

    The app and stew I ordered had clams that the majority of them had grit in them. My seafood stew has over 15 clams and I ate 2. I let my server know, and she threw the excuse that there were new staff in training and that’s why the clams were not cleaned properly. The bartender cleared our table and noticed the uneaten clams and he asked why and was told. We also mentioned our server knew. And that was it. There would be higher stars except this one thing that was brushed off with excuses.

    Amazing meal haven’t to Matt’s since 2017(?) , even more amazing than I remember! Absolutely a great place for a foodie and anyone else that wants a superb meal with great flavors. It was Valentine’s and my wife balked about driving to Seattle after the first taste of our scallop appetizers with the layers of flavors she was happy I dragged her out. Service was excellent as well, didn’t want to forget that and ambiance how can you go wrong with the pink/red “Market” sign shinning thru the windows! Thanks Matt and team!

    There were 3 people in our party, and all 3 of us found our meals to be bland and without flavor. The server did not come back to check on how our meals were, so my husband ate most of his- but myself and our other guest had at least 1/2 of our meals left. We were asked if we wanted boxes but not about how our meal was nor if we enjoyed it. Definitely not what we expected at a restaurant of this caliber. I had eaten at Matt's in the past and was looking forward to going back, but this was not an enjoyable experience.

    I would never recommend this place to anyone. My husband and I went here on a Saturday night and had a reservation that we made days prior. There were other parties that were told it was a 45 minute wait and were then seated before us right in front of the windows. We were then seated last and put in the middle of the restaurant (after waiting 25 minutes past our reservation time). We asked to move to the window as a couple got up and were then told “that is for people with reservations.” Which we had… we were treated very unfairly and the hostess wouldn’t even acknowledge us. We ended up leaving and did not eat here. Worst restaurant experience we have ever had. Customer service is awful.
