We enjoyed a lovely lunch in one of my favorite “true Seattle” spots. Although down in the market it does not feel touristy. It feels like the whole restaurant was filled with locals such as us. We enjoyed the falafel, halibut sandwich and an amazing dessert. The pastry chef there is fantastic. Everything was fresh and wonderful. Our server was knowledgeable and super sweet. We had a lovely tine.

Good food, however our 2 pm reservation was treated like an imposition. No dessert available, rushed service as “kitchen was transitioning for dinner”. I guess clientele are just an after thought. No one told us this seating meant no fun. Pretty lousy experience. We won’t be back.

Definitely the best meal I’ve had since moving to Seattle! The staff was super attentive (but not overbearing) and incredibly knowledgeable. We started with the marinated artichokes and the endive and crab salad. For our entrees we had the exquisite seafood stew and the halibut. For dessert, we had the candy bar and some OUTSTANDING strawberry rhubarb bread pudding. Clearly we went in hungry, and we were thrilled at the quality and inventiveness of the food. The only thing we weren’t in love with was the endive- it was light and refreshing, it tasted good, but it was just okay compared to everything else.
We can’t wait to go back! Until then, I’ll be dreaming of the stew.

I had friends from Texas visiting Seattle for the first time, so I wanted to take them someplace that I love and new would WOW. As a local, the Market is my favorite place to wander in the evening, after the stalls close and tourists are gone. It offers my favorite view of the neon Public Market sign from the beautiful arched windows, the bartender is amazing with custom cocktail orders, and the food is fantastic. We shared the best mussels and clams I've had in the city and rest of the meals included salmon, scallops, fish stew, and duck. There we no misses.

This restaurant is an example of why you need to be careful about 3rd party reviews. Zagat rated this place highly; as did several other sights...sorry, but they were wrong or they were there on a night when the kitchen lived up to the hype. The experience was not that special....the fish, plain; the salad, okay; the appetizers, uninspired; the prices, top-of-the-market (i.e. New York lands in Seattle). The positives: nice view out the windows and reasonably good service.

Have had lunch and dinner at Matt's and both are always excellent. This time it was lunch and we had the special which was scallops, along with a side green salad (which was big enough to share) Everything was outstanding. We have never been disappointed eating at Matt's.

We were so glad our son recommended having lunch at Matt's in the Market. We look forward to returning on our next trip from California to visit him next year. Loved the mussels and clams as well as the special lamb burger. The ambience was such a lovely contrast to most new restaurants that all look the same. My only complaint is that the restaurant failed to give me my 100 points on OpenTable.

PS Our server Matt was excellent.

Fantastic location with view looking at Pike Place Market sign right out the window. The service was great, explained the menu well and everyone's waters were refilled as soon as empty. The food was VERY good. The shrimp po boy was exceptional, great bread, tasty pickles, and very flavorful shrimp (not fried) with plenty of aoli. The chowder was very tasty but not quite as hot as I would have liked.

The view with the iconic Public Market sign is undeniable - the location is impeccable. But everything else is pretty subpar and less than thrilling... the best part of our meal was our cheese board which was absolutely delicious. The menu is TINY and the items we got were all just covered in salt. The grilled octopus was way too salty, and the halibut - while cooked to perfection - was again covered in so much salt that I wanted to drink a gallon of water after eating it. Our server was super kind and great to interact with, but my recommendation for this place is to get a seat at the bar, order a drink or two and the cheese board & enjoy the wonderful views, but don't waste time on an overpriced dinner you'll leave semi-disappointed with.

Visiting Seattle for a few days. I reviewed several restaurants to try. Matt’s in the Market looked interesting. Turned out to be much better than I initially thought. Great service, good view above the market and food was awesome. If I had more time I would go back this week. I tried the grilled octopus appetizer, trout entree and s’mores dessert. WOW!
