Matteo's of Hallandale
It was a horrible experience with very poor waitstaff and an even horrible management
We ordered meatballs for appetizers and our waiter told us they were small but they served us 2 large meatballs. We ordered a chicken dish similar to scarpiello and veal francese. Food was very good but we waited 45 minutes to get it. In fact, a couple that came in after us was served their entrees before us. For dessert we shared a Napoleon and was more crunchy than creamy. In closing, food was very good but service was average at best.
Waiter couldnt spend 5 minutes to explain the menu. Saud he had 6 other tables to work at and left us. When food was brought, instead of 3 separate platters for 3 different people there was 1 platter which they split in front of us into 3. Right in front of us. It was a sat night soo maybe too busy, but when you charge what you charge, service shouldnt suffer.
Great food always great !
Too noisy for an easy conversation. Food was delicious, however, the regular pasta with shrimp and clams was prepared differently, and there was hardly any pasta. Considering the price, why skimp on pasta?
The food is very good at not exceptional considering how expensive the restaurant is. I had the lamb chops and my husband had the egg plant Parmesan. They were both good.
The service was excellent. I appreciate when a waiter comes over several times to make sure that your food is OK.
La comida y el servicio en general, impecables. El único problema es que teníamos reserva e igual tuvimos que esperar mesa por 40 minutos. El lugar es muy concurrido, las mesas están muy juntas y el nivel de ruido es alto. Le da un ambiente particular, pero puede haber personas a las que les desagrade. Hay valet parking.
Great place for homemade Italian, generous portions, lots of variety, easy to fine something delicious to eat.
Awesome food! A bit pricey, but delicious!
Food is always consistent and the service is very good. I was there this New Years Eve and they do not jack up their prices.
Food is usually great, NYE was crazy busy and my hubby's food was slightly overcooked. everyone else enjoyed the meal and we were very happy with our table and server too.
We had a reservation at 8:45 and they sat us around 9. The girl mentioned that it may take a little bit to get served because they were busy. The waiter came by and brought us water and said he would be back to take our order but we may have to wait 10 minutes. Every time he would walk by he would say he he would be back in a minute. We sat there with our menus on the table for over a half an hour and then the hostess came by to apologize and basically said they can’t serve us because the kitchen would not be able to get us our food. Disgusting that they had us sit there for over a half hour before even acknowledging us with this. Would not reccomend this place at all. She offered us a gift card and told her no as I would never come back!!!👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻
I am not sure what was going on and why they would take reservations, but after sitting for more than an hour and 30 minutes all we had was our salad and two drinks. We never got our entrees and asked for the check. There was no reason why we had to wait and ask for our dinner order, but instead just asked for the check and left. We never were even asked if we wanted a second round. The place was completely disorganized with many other tables not getting their food in a reasonable amount of time.
I wish I could give a better rating, but it would not be deserved. This visit was extremely disappointing and while we have been in the past and had okay meals, this visit involved an 1.5hrs wait for food that never arrived before we opted to leave and go somewhere else.
The management was not empathetic at all and the waiter who served us was not either.
I would give it a hard pass going forward.
Great food and great service. Lamb chops outstanding!!!
Out group of five sat outside and happy to be there as the noise level inside was uncomfortable. The food was outstanding and service was good. Our reservation through Open Table was perfect and we were seated right away. Cannot wait to go back and again, seated outside. Evelyn G. Ottawa, Canada.
Fantastic meal made or Xmas perfect!!!!amazing. Great food and service
Exceptional service, delicious food and definitely on our top restaurant list while in S. Florida. Yael was fantastic and personally stuffed blue cheese olives for our Martinis!!!
Chicken was dry, clams were cool
We have been eating here for over 10 years. Took the family there tonight to have a nice meal and instead had a horrible experience. They had booked over 200 reservations plus utilizing Uber eats plus utilizing takeout. They did not have enough staff to handle this. They added extra tables so they could seat and serve more people. After waiting over an hour for entrées they were ice cold and almost in edible. They definitely could use some better management if they plan on trying to serve this many people.We don’t mind waiting for food if a restaurant is busy and the service is good but when the service is poor and the food is even worse it doesn’t equal a nice time.
Food quality and quantity were perfect as well as the service.
The food was good and the service was very good. We ate outdoors and the place was very nice.
This place was recommended to us and we couldn’t be more happy. Ambience and service were great, most importantly the food was superb. We started with the creamy burrata. Delish. My hubby had the pork chop and I had the Pappardelle Christina... so good! I ate it all! I would go back just for that pasta dish. We had the almond shell cannoli for dessert. So good! It was pretty big, good for sharing. I highly recommend this place. Looking forward to going back.
Always great service and delicious food. An Italian favorite
I asked if I could have a half order of chicken cacciatore and I was told yes when it came to the table it was huge and I said is this half and I was told yes and then the bill came and it was the price on the board which I assumed was the full price but I guess there was just one price and I was misinformed
Excellent service and food
Expensive but good food & service, lovely restaurant .
alway excellent and authentic. very enjoyable and the food and service tops
As the many reviews report
Service was terrible . Our waiter was Kevin. Our dinner was 1 hour wait from order. The 4 of us would have walked out if we weren't enjoying the company of each other and the conversation.
always consistent; never disappoints regardless of what i order
We live in the area and go here twice a month.
Very happy we get to do this.
Throughly enjoyed the burnt Brussel sprouts!
Tidos vodka delicious but a little expensive
Our waiter, Kevin, was very good. The bread was good. I ordered the seafood salad at $19, and it was the WORST seafood salad I was ever served. There was NO seafood; I paid $19 for green peppers. The chicken parm and string beans were fine. The prosciutto and melon was good. The food is usually better at Matteo’s. Do not order the seafood salad.
Joe the bartender always does a great job @ the bar and helps me to get our desired table.Food was great as always.
some of the family get together. great food and wine. we had the Amarono from northern Italy. service excellent
We have been to the restaurant many times. On this visit the two pasta dishes we had were not good. The waiter, although pleasant was incompetent. one of the worst we ever experienced.
