We brought friends with us to help celebrate my husband’s birthday. They had never been to Matteos. Matteos is our favorite restaurant and now it’s our friends favorite as well. Food, service and friendliness was all around us Great evening. Best eggplant parmigiana anywhere !!

I think at Matteo’s the secret is the waiter/waitress. And this time dinner was NOT good because of very poor service and attention to detail.

We were a party of 6 at a big table and as the waitress took the order she should have said we have 3 pasta dishes — as no one could hear anything...and suggested otherwise. That being said — she certainly could have served portions to each person when the plates came out instead of us passing around large dishes between us WITHOUT serving utensils for each dish.
A good waiter would have served the food and come back to serve the rest. Made for a not so enjoyable dinner and we’d be hard pressed to come back even though we have had good experiences.
Very mediocre evening but thankfully the music was very enjoyable.

if you want to make a reservation for 8.15pm and wait to be seated at 9pm, this is your place. Add to this, rude waiters and you are set for the night.

The food was okay.

Our reservation was for 8.00pm and we started eating at 9.45 . We were a table of 8 and just left to hang around on the pavement for 45 minutes. They had obviously overbooked and there were people everywhere. No social distancing in place and no thought of where to look after people that were left waiting . The only reason we didn’t leave is it was our last night in the USA with our friends .
The hostess was completely out of control of the situation and you could clearly see her lack of experience and people skills .
The waiter , when we were finally seated , was very good , attentive and efficient , although the drinks had to be sent back twice due to the drinks coming out wrong .
The starters were good but unfortunately 6 of the 8 meals were not good .
All in all a terrible experience.

Waited too long for drinks, then mine was wrong . Had to wait again. Two different people tried to take our order. Two chipped salad came first and the other two appetizers did not for about 10 more minutes. Also the chopped salads had no dressing, what should guests do dress it themselves? Next, one persons entree came by itself! Then I guess a manager saw and asked what else we were waiting for , he was angry, then in about another 5 minutes the others food came. Then, plates cleared, never asked if we wanted another drink throughout the dinner, or desserts etc....
we heard it was so nice there but the kitchen was way off I guess.
Also, we were seated on the slower side of the restaurant outdoors, not the best table and loud traffic on that side.
