Truly one of the most memorable parts of our trip. The food, staff and ambiance are absolutely worth every penny. my boyfriend literally couldn't even describe the meal he was so blown away (he is a HUGE Foodie). I couldn't appreciate the gentleman more who refused to let us have the table in the middle of the restaurant because he said we "deserved a better view". It was so beautiful and not something I will ever forget.

Very accomodating and found us a great table. Great food as usual on our annual business trip. Chorizo and black bean soup is a great side. Miss the pulled pork burger tho.

If you are vegetarian, you have to order off the menu. But what a meal! It was delicious: Charred greens, falafel in tahini sauce, fava beans, and two pieces of toast with a delicious spread on top.

Service was great - menu was goof, a bit limited for lunch (not everybody needs a sandwich at lunch). Food was uneven - an amazing dish of clams and mussels in a Tunisian sauce with croutons, and a mediocre tuna sandwich - even with outstanding St. Jude's tuna. The fishwich sandwich was also a disappointment - fairly mediocre, and the fish was not very tasty. The falafel plate was good, but too heavy on their kind of heavy falafels, and not enough of the lebneh and baba ganoush - and a dash of hummous or tahini sauce would have been good - something to help with the dryness of the falfels. The flat bread was outstanding on this dish!

Overall, because of the service, the ambiance, the celebratory mood we were in - a good time was had by all, but I'm not sure I would go back or recommend.

Also - the wine list pricing was a bit out of control - they had low end wines at high end prices, and nothing below $55 a bottle, which is a bit high for lunch time - there are plenty of places with good wine options for $35 or $40 for bottles. And even in the under $80 category, the pickings were slim and not that desirable. And their mark-ups were clearly out of bounds. I would recommend bringing a good bottle and paying the $25.00 corkage fee - you would definitely be better off going that way.

The squid ink tagliatelle special was the best pasta I've ever had - velvety pasta, just the right amount of heat in the sauce and perfect calamari. Drinks were creative and delicious. Great ambiance.

Great food and good portion. Very fresh tasting. The place is in an old historic setting with high ceiling, so it is a bit noisy as sounds carry through.

We’d been looking forward to visiting and have to say it was mistly a disappointment. The oysters on the half shell were mostly okay but two of the six were mushy and unpleasant. The brussels sprouts were the standout dish. Delicious. They were out of sturgeon so topped the salad with what was called salmon shoulder. It was unattractive and a bad combination. The steak was ordinary. Our bread never came. The brown butter ice cream was only partially set. Service was inattentive. Not what we hoped or expected.

Our meal was delicious but we admit to ordering a bit on the lighter side as we were blown away by the prices. We’ve been dining at Matt’s since 2002, mostly lunch but often dinner, and it seems that each time, the entrees are more expensive and the portions a wee bit smaller. Perhaps lunch is the better deal - we haven’t been in a while but the catfish sandwich was always the favorite! This time around, dinner prices felt like they included the cost of the rent for a prime location in the Pike Place Market. Like the Seattle housing market, the prices seemed inflated for the “view.”

The seafood stew was very good except for the fish. Mackerel did not work in that dish. Prices are high and there was no extras. The sides served with the steak and shake scallops were very small portions which was fine because it was bland. The scallops were perfect.
The service was excellent and the atmosphere makes it worth visiting.

Portions really small. Substitutions made on our meals, without discussing with us first. Didn’t feel welcomed by the server. She seemed annoyed.
Positive: Butterscotch Creme Brûlée was excellent.
Probably will not return.

This restaurant in the Sanitary Market (across from Pike's Place Market) is open for lunch and dinner. We normally go for lunch and the food is always spectacular. You should always make reservations or you may be disappointed; either use Open Table or call.

Love the cozy ambience of this place it has a sort of rustic charm inside but then looks over a beautiful view of pike place market. Very romantic at night and the way it’s set up you feel almost alone with your table, no one is too close. Delicious food, lovely plating and fantastic cocktails.
