All the food was very good. The only downside is that the menu is a bit limited.

Wonderful place for a business lunch! The atmosphere and location are great and wonderful for entertaining out of town guests. We lucked out with a great window seat on a beautiful sunny Seattle day. Truly a Seattle institution!

Catfish sandwich was melt in your mouth, and unbelievably fresh. Only critique is that I would have preferred more flavor. Perhaps could have used a more generous amount of the specialized mayo that dresses it. Phenomenal for the ingredients and freshness regardless.

Surprisingly awesome food in a bit of a dive-y (in a good way) setting. It's a little hard to find, and on the way in, you're not sure if it's all the reviews would indicate - but you're quickly dispossessed of any reticence when the food is put on the table. The kitchen works hard, and they put out some impressive food during our recent visit. The servers were friendly and attentive. Would recommend a cocktail (or two) with water at the meal, rather than the wine list, but wine's not why you're there. Delicious - great find.

Researched restaurants in downtown Seattle. Foders identified Matt’s in the Market and there were excellent reviews on OpenTable too. We wanted to have a memorable and delicious dinner. Matt’s in the Market did not disappoint. Fresh seafood was outstanding! One of us had the seafood stew, which was a bowl full of fresh seafood. What made this special is that you could taste many delectable seafood items and they were not drowning in broth—-just enough on the bottom of the bowl. The other had the scallops in a lemon sauce which was great too! Service was great, presentation was great, food was great.

One of the best meals I've had lately. In Seattle, that's saying something. The roasted brussel sprouts for starter was incredible. I could make a meal of this if it were a little larger and I added bread. It had a Middle Eastern vibe and creative use of ingredients. The seared scallops were perfect. Great char on the outside and succulent just right inside. Try the strawberry rhubarb bread pudding with Meyer lemon ice cream. I'm not a dessert fan so my companion ordered and I said I would take a taste. Well- we fought over every last bite. Subtle, not cloying--the ice cream was incredible.

I feel the food is overrated and overpriced compared to some much better restaurants in the area.

My husband had the Salmon , and it was wonderful . I had the seafood stew , it was good, not fantastic! The crab in the stew was horrible, unable to eat it, almost like the pieces you would throw away. I waited for our waitress to ask how we liked our meal, she didn’t ask, so I assume she knew! Desert was good. We won’t return, which is to bad since we’ve just moved to Seattle!

The food was delicious, but what I ordered on the menu was not what arrived on the plate. I ordered, seared scallops, farro nero, chorizo, pinenuts. I received 3 seared scallops, placed on a white sauce of some sort, with finely sliced apple and sprouts of some sort on top. I was out to try new flavors so I ate it and it was great, new flavor, but not what I Ordered. Which is kinda the idea behind a menu. The staff were great, location great.

I've been going to Matt's since 1996, when I worked at The Creamery at Pike's Place Market. It has stayed friendly, great service, yummy food and a relaxed dining experience. Great view. It's my go to restaurant, never lets me down.

Matt's is one of our favorite places to eat in Seattle. The casual, bar-like atmosphere is delightful for lunch; the food is world-class! This visit was part of my birthday trip from Charlotte, and if Matt's were in our town we would dine there at least once every month. The seafood is wonderful as are the unique bergers and the view of the bustle of Pike's Market and the Bay off in the distance add to the experience. Waitstaff is wonderful - never feel rushed. Reservations are a good idea as this place gets very busy for lunch.

Took my mom for her birthday, since she happened to be in town and loves the Pike Place Market. While the prices reflect the location, a view of the market while eating is lovely. We ended up ordering all 3 of the daily specials and other plates, such as the scallops.

Fantastic food, excellent service, and a good time. For sure. I have been before, I will definitely go back.
