Matt's in the Market is a consistent and always enjoyable restaurant to eat in. Pacific Northwest cuisine with farm fresh ingredients are the Hallmark of this restaurant.

Matt's is a favorite for us to dine as a couple, for a special occasion and to entertain out of town friends. It never fails us.

I've never had a bad meal at Matt's. The fishwich (on a brioche roll) is my favorite local lunch. The fish is delicate and the sauce yummy. Staff is attentive and polite. Food is outstanding.

All and all I have dined all around Seattle and I can not recommend this place enough. Everything you order is amazing and the seasonally changing menu and the specials will defiantly keep you coming back. I have eaten here 6 times now and have never been disappointed.

great food and we were early enough with a reservation to get a window seat - VERY nice! Great food for sure - nicest lamb shank we'd ever seen and perfectly cooked, plus a seafood stew that was outstanding as well. Cauliflour salad and seared foie gras extraordinary - thanks! Wine list outstanding.
Stephan had the service and was good, but too mant tables to serve slowed that piece a bit...and got moderately noisy....but will always be a favorite place we go to - location/view/food are always reliably great!

Service was attentive but not at all obtrusive. Seafood stew had WAY too much lemon juice for my taste. Wine selections are excellent.

Great food and atmosphere. My wife loved the NY strip with eggplant purée and I enjoyed the scallops with potato & short rib croquettes. Service was leisurely, meal took about 2 hours, but we were happy for it to be slower paced. The location/ambience was perfect, we were right next to the pike place sign. Would definitely recommend.

The food was very good and wait staff excellent. I had a glass of white wine that I probably should have sent back but didn’t. It really tasted off, like it had been sitting around too long. Even the odor smelled like the wine was “corked.” My advice would be to ask for a small taste of white wines served by the glass before buying.
Overall, the meal was very nice.

One of Seattle's finest and with good reason. Every word of praise is well deserved. Must-haves: fried brussels sprouts and catfish sandwich. You won't regret it!

Omg! The food was amazing! We dined here on Valentines Day at the suggestion of a friend. We had the octopus and there were pickled onions on it that just made the whole dish pop. The burrata salad was fantastic! It was topped with pistachios and had squash on the side. Just so good! Our main courses took the meat to another level. I always order scallops wherever I go and was expecting them to be good but they were literally the best scallops I have ever had! There were greens on the side with lemon infused. Put it together and it was heaven in my mouth! My husband’s had the lamb and it was massive and delicious. The lemon panna cotta for dessert was light and refreshing. Added bonus: their whiskey list was incredible and not too bad of prices. My husband couldn’t resist the Birthday Bourbon. Our server was very attentive but didn’t rush us. We were seated by the kitchen/cooking area so we got to see every dish before we ordered. This pregnant lady left very full and very happy!!!

Matt’s in the market was highly recommended by a friend, thank goodness we went. Food, service and total experience was fantastic.
The hostess was very accommodating and considered my 7yr old’s hungry state and sat us immediately even if we arrive a few minutes ahead of our reservation.
Server was polite and patient and gave us ample time to decide on what we wanted to have for lunch.
Food arrived in a timely manner and did not disappoint. Oysters were tasted fresh and sweet. The crab sandwich portion was generous and perfectly seasoned. Scallops were perfectly cooked and delicious.
A must try resto if your visiting. Seattle for the first time.

I took my 7 yr old son on our early valentines date to Matt’s. Everyone was so sweet to him and he enjoyed his fizzy Shirley temple, the yummiest salmon dinner, and delicious desserts!!

Matt’s is a very good spot. Small, warm and cozy, and with a great location and view of the market. The menu is limited in terms of offerings yet it has a good selection and what’s on it is excellent. Not a cheap date but a decent value. The kitchen is the star, and it was gratifying to see how thoroughly they were cleaning EVERYTHING at the end of the night, including the traps in the stove vents. Clearly chef sets high standards in every way, which is reflected in the customer experience.
