My husband and I have been going to Matt’s for 7 years. Specifically, we have a tradition of staying at the Four Seasons (where we were married) and going to Matt’s for our wedding anniversary. We have had mainly good service.. however, the last two years we have been, there has been horrible service. I’ll spare you the details but I will say that we requested “our table” months in advance and we were seated next to the kitchen in a two top under bright lights. When I kindly asked to be moved closer to the table we requested he laughed in a catty way and told me they were the kind of restaurant that was “booked every night”. All in all.. they were acting extremely pretentious and the food was mediocre at best. Duck was rubbery and bass was dry. Sadly, we will not be going back.

With a view that looks out right over Pike Place Market's neon sign, Matt's hit all the right notes for me. I was looking for a memorable lunch spot for me & my sister, both of us either live now or have lived there. The food was more than solid for the price point and it definitely made us feel right in the middle of one of our favorite places in town. Worth a visit for anyone debating it.

Matt’s in the Market is very good food, service is adequate, but the prices are off the charts for the food, service, and atmosphere (austere environment). We enjoyed our evening, but way too expensive. The wine list doesn’t have any values on it at all and they couldn’t even recommend a single “value” buy for a bottle of white.

Still a Seattle classic in a beautiful location. Great ambiance, perfectly prepared food. Prices have definitely gone up...almost nothing substantial under $30, and many over $40.

We really enjoyed the food, the ambiance & the view. All the servers were very friendly, experienced and helpful. The deviled eggs were delicious & different. My husband had the clams and mussels. They were perfectly done & the chorizo added a very positive taste to them. I had the scallops. They were beautifully browned and tender. The romanesco & cauliflower that accompanied the scallops were no less than perfect. So happy to have finally tried this restaurant! We will be back!

I went here with a few friends on a Saturday evening. Being tourists, we liked that they sat us at a table overlooking Pike's Place Market. Service was good, especially the sommelier (we like wine). We shared the meat and cheese samplers to start, and they were extremely good. We had the salmon, seafood stew and scallops as entrees, and all 3 were also very good. While fairly expensive in absolute terms, it's cheaper than other restaurants in their class so we were happy there. Overall, a very pleasant evening with good food and wine.

Outstanding food, served with a view of the Pike Place Market sign in front of the Ferris wheel. Doesn't get any more iconic than that. The seared fois gras, and the seared scallops were the highlights of the evening. OK, the sauteed chanterelles (a side to the scallops) were clearly over-salted, which was a bit unfortunate, but didn't take away much from a wonderful evening.

One of our favorites in Seattle. Perfect for a special occasion. Super great service, excellent wine list and wonderfully delicious food. We shared the simple green salad which could not have been better, and I had the stripped bass and my spouse had the seared scallops and we shared an excellent bottle of Chablis. We also each had a desert - both were amazing. Splendid evening.

What a delicious meal I had.

Not only was the food tasty and warm, the great people working there were friendly and ready to help.

I also enjoyed looking through the nice windows over Pike Place Market.

It was fun to watch the talented chefs working close by too.

I am in love with this place. A perfect mix of casual and elegance and the atmosphere is perfect! We came in for our anniversary and really did it up right, but have also come in to sit at the bar just for a drink! We are always treated so well!

While the view was lovely we found the food over priced and the server a bit snooty. Not sure when farmed salmon became acceptable.

A friend who lives in Seattle suggested we meet at Matt's for dinner. Being right there at Pike Place suggests great seafood! I had the scallops and my friend had the salmon, both were excellent. Service was attentive and not intrusive. Ambiance is simple but cozy. The place was crowded and I felt the noise was a bit too loud . Prices are on the high side, expected for the location. Cheers!

Matt's in the Market has become our favorite pre-theatre treat. A theatre date is just an excuse, though. Any day we get to tuck into a bowl of those delicious, steaming clams and mussels is a very good day. We love the view from a window seat, too!

We loved our lunch at Matt’s. One person in our party said it was the best banh mi she had tasted to date. The fish sandwich was excellent as was the Philadelphia cheesesteak sandwich. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The bread was excellent on all of the sandwiches.

A friend and I split two salads and the seafood stew. Everything was delicious

The kale salad had cranberries and the flavors together were amazing.
