Delicious very fresh Caesar salad (with dressing on the side as ordered) and a beautiful blackened salmon filet cooked to perfection. Very nice server and I loved the outdoor dining space.

I have been a faithful customer of Matts ever since it opened. Not too long ago I went there for happy hour & saw a free table on the patio. I was told I cannot be seated there because those are reserved. On a subsequent occasion I tried to reserve a table on the patio & was told it was first come first serve. Not good.

I thought it would be a good idea to celebrate my wife’s birthday there with a few friends. When I made the reservation on Open Table I mentioned the fact that we had been coming there for a long time, & though the patio was first come first serve I wanted to see if they would make an exception to accompdate five people. I mentioned that I wanted Jacob to be my server if he was working that night (he was) as I always get excellent service from him, which is why I wantrd to be seated in his section.

When I got there it's as though staff didn’t even read my request (or maybe even care). There was one table available at the entrance & it was not in Jacob's section. The wait server seemed pleasant enough but problems became immediately apparent.

One of my friends noticed that her armrest was broken, which could’ve been a liability for Matts. The wait person switched it out with another chair, but I was shocked to see that somebody else was seated at that very same chair. That person could’ve leaned against the armrest and fallen over, and I made a point of mentioning this to that customer.

Then my wife accidentally spilled her wine. The wait person cleaned it up promptly, but totally forgot about the fact that my wife’s wine glass is now empty. After too long I had to ask the wait person to replace the drink when that’s something I shouldn't have to do.

I don’t see why it would’ve been such a big deal to have seated somebody else at the table I ultimately got & to leave the table in Jacob's section open as per my request. I will continue to visit Matt's for casual dining but will think twice before choosing it for a special occasion.

The ordered appetizer wasn’t served. Long wait for a lukewarm meal. Inattentive waiter. Hostess was unable to seat us al fresco despite having a reservation. Where do you get chicken? Costco? The breast was huge! $29 for a cheap chicken? $100+ meal for two for a so-so meal and experience? You can do better.

Perfect for business lunch or dinner. Relatively quiet so you can have a conversation without shouting to hear each other. Knowledgeable wine steward, fairly good selection of wines, needs more than one Merlot selection though.

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!
