Was not our best experience, but as it is a local place we may try it again?

As usual, our meal at Matt’s was excellent. Oysters and calamari flowed by steak frites abs steak tacos. Great meal. Great service. We definitely will return as should you!

My girlfriend and I came here for the first time and we really enjoyed it. Our service was amazing. The food came out quick and it tasted great. I would recommend visiting this place if you are in the area. Especially for the oysters!

The process allows you to leave notes...but NO ONE reads them. They thank you for your reservation, confirm your reservation and remind you of your reservation....now they add asking for a review about the reservation. But again NO ONE did anything to make sure the reservation is as you asked.

Staff didn't care...or at lease the less than enthusiastic "two Face" character at the front desk. I was given a few other options...but neither made me feel welcome nor my business wanted.

Matt's service level and attention to detail has fallen dramatically in the past 3 years and I have finally decided to cross them off my list of options for a great experience on the Eastside. We will not be returning.

We were able to eat outside. The waiter was so courteous and friendly even while managing the entire busy area. The oysters were fresh and delicious. The calamari, truffle fries and mixed grill skewers were delicious. I will eat here again.

Seated outside right away. Kendrick hustled to support indoor bar & outdoor seats. Great food as always, tho I think the portion sizes on the salads are smaller than they were a few years ago. Thanks for the free birthday dessert!

Unfortunately, the restaurant was out of an awful lot - no oysters, no chowder, limited beer selection. Overall was very disappointed by the service and just lack of available (in stock) food options

Easy to make a reservation. Staff was friendly. Cute outdoor eating area. Wish we had the option to eat outside. Food was yummy. My husband felt his portion of food was small for how much he can eat. I felt satisfied with my oysters and risotto. Would eat here again.

Matts is great but you can tell that they are trying to covid recover in staffing as it was a bit of time between visits and checking on table. It was busy and we know that they are trying to meet the challenge.

Been going to matts for YEARS. always pretty consistent. Since covid guidelines have eased they are very busy and not organized. Portions are small, wait staff is new, and everyone is scrambling. Took 30 mins for someone to get us water and take our order, then we waited another 50 mins to get our food which was cold. Didnt comp anything, only offered until after we paid our bill, gave us 2 free appetizer cards for next time. Not going back for a while until they get used to being open again, servers remember how to stay on top of their tables and give proper customer service and the beef up their portions again.

We arrived at 5 minutes to 12:00 when they opened. You need stanstions out there so people can know where to line up it was a zoo with ppl cutting in front of people.

Service, she was very sweet but it took forever for her to get to us, get our drinks. Another 15 min. to order the crab artichoke dip for the 5 of us. Then the eternal wait for lunch. Even our young adult kids were like where did she go? She never checks back. Finally our food came. Blue cheese on daughters salad after she asked for the steak salad no BC and no BC crumbles. Then another one came and the steak was bloody raw. The waitress didn't even notice it. Daughter picked around it; didn't eat much - I finally said that it was raw and she'd aske d for medium. In her defense she was really nice and the rest of the food was good. I have loved Matt's for many years and will go back again.

Would have preferred outside seating but took table inside- was told happy hour does not apply inside. Disappointing. French dip good. Prime rib good. Halibut fish tacos tasted old! Halibut fish snd chips not great and cold.

This was our first and last time eating at Matts' Rotisserie & Oyster Lounge, reservation, which we had, or not. From the reviews we read we thought we were going to a restaurant where we could relax and leisurely enjoy our meals. Maybe that would have been true if hard rock and metal (ACDC, Led Zepplin, Metallica) were on our playlists containing relaxing dinner music. But that's not the case. The music was loud and piped throughout the entire restaurant except in the waiting area by the front door. Once we were seated and had placed our orders one of the hostesses started vacuuming. She vacuumed, for approximately 10 minutes, the entire section we were seated including under our table forcing us to move our feet out of her way mumbling something incoherent. The service was fine at the beginning but once we were served our meals, which we waited a significant amount of time for, getting our server's attention or any other server's attention for simple accompaniment's that would typically go with our choices, proved to be frustrating. And the service only got worse.

We dinned here for Mother’s Day. I wanted to love it, but it was very disappointing. We were seated in a booth near the bar area. Loud conversations from the staff standing around the bar made it difficult to have a conversation at times. Cutlery given to us was dirty and had to be exchanged. Our meals came with a side of veggies...I received two asparagus spears and my husband one. The clams were in a bath of chicken broth that was overwhelmingly chicken-y. My prime rib in a puddle of broth as well.

Four of us celebrated a family birthday. It was our first time at Matt's and everyone loved it. All our meals (2 rotisserie prime ribs, halibut from the Fresh Sheet, and scallops risotto) were beautifully cooked and presented. Very nice wine and beer selection (can't fault a place with Guinness on tap), and a professional and friendly waiter. Perfect post-Covid-vaccination outing, and the liveliest place we've been to in over a year. We are already plotting our return!
