Great views and amazing food here. Sometimes a challenge to find this place, but worth the effort. Robbie is one of the sweetest, most gracious and humorous bartenders in the city. Belly up if you can get a seat.

This was our first time traveling to Seattle and we wanted to make the most of it by tasting all it had to offer. Fortunately, we were able to get a reservation at Matt’s - the food was incredible! I would highly recommend the fish stew and the bread pudding with ice cream but I don’t think you could go wrong with anything on the menu.

Canlis prices in a funky location. Long time customer but it’s gotten too expensive without superior wine list, service and all that come with it. Beware you may be shocked; research before going.

This restaurant has steadily declined over the last year. The cobb salad has gone from fresh, colorful and a burst of flavor to drab, overdressed and overcooked chicken (vs the formerly delightful poached chicken). The daily soup has deteriorated from highly inventive to overly salty. Unfortunately, some of the servers have become surly......

Sad to see this happen to a once great place to eat.

Haven't been for dinner, but they do a great lunch. Fish is always delicious there. Salads are always perfectly dressed (which must be much more difficult than it seems, because few restaurants seem to do it well). It's a little on the pricey side, but nice for a treat, and food and service are always very good.

I’ve dined here many times. This time, my lunch entree (falafel) was pretty bad, flavorless, not fluffy on the inside and a hard crisp on the outside. I ordered tea for afterwards and when it arrived at the table it was already so over-brewed that it was extremely bitter. My companions liked their meals, so there’s that. Our server was very attentive, the drinks were good (quite spendy) so I guess I will try it again and hope it was an off-experience. Oh, and the window was stuck open on a very chilly day so I had to wrap myself in 2 scarves and a coat at the table.

Finally found it after walking around entire building. A bigger sign? Loved the setting but not much vibe going on. Loved the photo the waiter took of us! We had a Manhattan and Sancerre white wine to start the evening. Octopus starter was delicious and different. My wife had the halibut with fennel and fresh peas which she loved. I had the filet because they were out of the lamb shank. It was very good. I felt the evening was a bit pricey overall. Would probably try a new place on next special occasion.

Matt's in the Market has everything you want for the Seattle experience. Their location above Pike Place market makes it so special. The restaurant is always busy. The food is truly phenomenal. The crab cakes were some of the best crab cakes I have ever tasted...crispy on the outside and flavorful on the inside. The octopus appetizer was amazing too - it was so tender. I found out that they cook it for hours with a dry marinade.
The service is terrific and everyone in the restaurant helps as a team. One of Seattle's finest restaurants.
