Sushi quality was just OK.
Service was great. Ambiance was really nice.
We were just OK with the food. Nothing to make us want to come back soon for....

Thank you Matsu! Our large group was easily accommodated, you were patient even when some of them did not arrive on time, you helped us plan our meal around the other large groups you were expecting. The service was gracious, helpful, prompt, and all around wonderful. Thank you!

Food was delicious, service was great and attentive! Rolls took longer than hot foods and prices were a bit high, but that might just be the Seattle culture.

Previous dining experience (service) wasn't great, but close to stadium and hotel, so thought we'd give it another go. We enjoyed the food, beverages, and service this time around. Matsu is a little more on the spendy side, so be prepared for that, but considering that, the apps and rolls we at were delicious.

Actually this place does not seem to be owned by Japanese. But the price and taste is acceptable.

The restaurant is beautiful and hostess was amazing, very friendly and genuine! Our server seemed like he was having an off evening and was pretty short and terse with us at the beginning, eventually by the middle of our meal he was nicer but it started the evening on a rough and sort of tense note. Yakiudon I ordered was ok, not a lot of flavor so that was disappointing. The chicken katsu was also just ok, came out like popcorn chicken and the dipping sauce was not great. Crunchy California roll was very tasty. I had a sashimi set and although it tasted good, my stomach was not happy later in the day so not sure if it was the sashimi but since my husband had everything I ate besides that and felt fine I am guessing it was. All in all we enjoyed our dinner but with the mediocre service and food I would be on the fence about going back. Too bad because it had a lot of promise.

We were seated right away on a Saturday night. The server was knowledgable and brought our meal out promptly. I had the KFC chicken with spicy ramen from the happy hour menu and a spicy tuna roll with Jameson on the rocks. My partner had miso soup as well as the veggie sampler plate. We both loved our food. It was really tasty.

The sushi was very unimpressive. The only thing good about the sushi was that it was fresh - the rolls fell apart really easily and the rice was too wet.

5 stars for the ice cream though - that was really good. Service was good with nice and helpful wait staff and ambiance was good.

Great location and great quality sushi if you are going to a game or something near the stadiums. But otherwise, if you can, make it to momiji or the other sister restaurant before going here.

This was the second consecutive year my leadership team and I hosted peers from our largest client for dinner after our annual Executive Review. And again, Matsu did not disappoint. The staff is appropriately attentive and very knowledgeable of every aspect of their revised menu - including food/beverage pairings. Even seated in the main room, our group of 10 could easily converse from end-to-end, and enjoyed the privacy to discuss confidential subject matter.

Kudos and thank you.

Fabulous! Romantic and fun! Super nice folks! We ate here on Friday for our Anniversary and they were so kind to seat us in the back. The sushi, sashimi and short ribs were fantastic! So good we came back on Saturday night, after the WHO concert for more sashimi, sushi and drinks. Super great again!!

Yummy chef’s choice sashimi platter, also delicious sushi roll options for our vegan son. Great location, as we stayed at adjacent Embassy Suites Pioneer for Sounders home game. Pricey, but tasty and killer stadium location..

We loved Matsu! The cocktails were great and they had a very impressive sake list. We ordered some of the best sashimi I’ve ever had and the spicy crab miso was phenomenal. The only item we didn’t appreciate was the salmon skin roll (the pike place, I think) and that was purely on taste preference, not quality.

Ambiance is lovely; quiet and calm. However the Sushi was of fair quality only. The fish tasted wet as if it were recently thawed. Cooked food was far better. but it doesn't make it worth a visit here. Service was good, nothing great.

Cod is very good. Everything came out quickly. Sushi is better than average. Happy hour is a good value. I'd say the short ribs we're just so so.
Overall, I'd go again. I've been twice.
