Matt's is one of my go-to places to meet with friends. The food is good and ambiance is lively. Our server for the evening was perfect - attentive and humorous.

We enjoyed an early dinner at Matts’ before a concert at Marymoor Park. The food was good, drinks very good and service excellent.

The only real complaint I had was the quality of my kale salad. Almost every piece of kale had a long stem attached to it. Very disappointing for such a quality restaurant.

We love Matt's. Consistently good for years now. Some of the best oysters around, a great selection of wine by the glass, and nearly everything on their menu is terrific!

Dined after seeing the Lion King movie. Our granddaughter loved the choices on the kids menu. Not many places offer salmon & smashers on the kids menu. Matt’s is on of our favorite restaurants. Great salads and specials!

I made a reservation as I wasn’t sure how busy it was going to be with Exotics@RTC going. Turns out I didn’t need one but they weren’t prepared for us either. The outside fables (where I had asked to dine in the reservation) were all dirty and not setup. There was no one out there and got sat right by the escalators just bc two tables were pushed together there - I would have preferred sitting closer to the balcony railing. We kind of felt ignored but overall the food was good as usual.

Only one problem I have is the loudness of the music. Can't carry on a conversation as the noise level gets worse the more people in the place.

Over priced... also reminded me of a Denny’s in some way, I’d expect more privacy. 200 dollar dinner I’d think it would’ve been more private

We waited over an hour for food. The food was really poor quality. Server mentioned that they were running out of food for Fathers Day. I would not recommend Matts' Rotisserie at this time.

The clam appetizer was delicious. Be sure to ask for extra bread for the broth. Both the halibut & chips and the steak frites were nicely prepared.
If they have the mixed berry cobbler, I recommend it!

My wife and I frequent Matt's on a fairly regular basis. Not as much as we did when we were younger.
We are always treated nicely and the service and food were exceptional.

We met with friends for a birthday celebration. Matt’s is high on our favorite restaurants and our friends loved it too! Our waiter (I wish I could remember his name) is someone who has served us often in the past and his service this time was as excellent as always.

The fried oysters tasted of bad oil, pretty harsh. The Berkshire pork chop, usually a huge favorite of ours, was dry and overcooked and very very difficult to cut with a steak knife. The waiter brought my appetizer but had completely forgotten about my husbands salad. When we reminded him, he apologized and brought it quickly.

We love this restaurant and eat there frequently. However this was a busy day for them and they struggled a bit. Provided us with a different tables meals and then forgot an appetizer. That said, they quickly corrected things and we felt good about the attention paid to us.

It seemed like an off night as everyone on the service staff was focusing on the incident with the individual who caused issues right before we walked on. It was quite off-putting.

Visited for lunch. Had oysters on the half-shell. They were absolutely delicious and I love the fresh grated horseradish. Seafood chowder was very good also, with a rich broth.
