Food was great...service was fine but we had three different people stop by the table multiple times to see if we needed anything...its great they were on top of things but we only needed refills once and this was a business lunch. The interruptions were unnecessary.

Our waitress recognized this but the manager and somebody else who I don't know what his role did not.

Steak was not as tender as touted on the menu. Appetizer was room temp and was supposed to be hot. Some of the patrons were very loud. Not the restaurant's fault, just took away from the atmosphere.

Matt the Miller's Tavern-Kenwood was a very pleasant change from the usual chain restaurants. Six of us had dinner at Matt's on Valentine's Day at 7PM. We were seated at a table by request and reservation. The filet was perfect and the garlic mashed potatoes were mild enough that I enjoyed them very much. The fish and chips was ordered by three of our party and I saw that they were all peeling off the breading so it was just too much breading. The pork chop was huge and they seemed to like it. There was a jerk chicken dish that was so outstanding that our friend wanted to come back again for sure and order it again along with the tomato basil soup. We will go there again.

One of our go-to places and they did not disappoint. Three of us. I had the walleye which I cook and order out when I see it and this may have been the best I ever had. Our son had the shrimp and grits and loved it and my husband had the Cuban and said it was excellent. All sides were well prepared and all plates were cleaned. The manager was very helpful with a wine selection. Our server seemed new. He was pleasant enough but could have been more attentive and needs to become more knowledgeable. We'll continue to be fans.

Both of us ordered seafood that was under-seasoned. The vegetables were similarly flavorless. I did like the flexibility of the wine menu (you can choose the pour size). The service was extremely slow, which caused us to miss our movie. We didn't complain, but our server and the manager apologized for the wait and gave us a $10 gift card for our next visit. My expectations were higher based on the polished look from the outside, so it was pretty disappointing.

Thank you for reviewing Kim. We're sorry to hear that you found the seafood dish that you ordered to be overall flavorless and that the service was less than spectacular. We are glad to hear that the manager stopped by to address the issue and to welcome you back to visit us. Your visit is not standard and they have used it as a coaching moment for the server. We hope you will come back and allow us to try again with your gift certificate. Kristin

Food and service were good although we had to sit in the bar area because there was a large party in the dining area and they could not accommodate us (5 people) without sitting us close to the large party of 25. Not really fond of the bar area because of the TV’s and all the sports.

My first visit to this Restaraunt proved to be underwhelming as both entrees were very salty and the service in preparing the meals was slow. The waitress and manager were quick to try to reconcile the unfortunate over salted meal and comped is for the dinner and gave us coupons to come back and try again. Going to give it another try before giving a final verdict. Was Impressed with management’s efforts to reconcile the situation. Stay tuned...

I don't know who Matt the Miller was, but I do know that his tavern is a great place for a nice meal. Perhaps the best part is the varied menu, so not only can everyone in your party find something they like, but you can return and choose something different each time. Options run from a modest quinoa and veggie bowl to flat breads to burgers to steaks. Everybody enjoyed their meals, sand the portions were reasonable, so no one needed a doggie bag. Finally, I can recommend the Matt-hattan as a solid, "savory" cocktail.

They continue to have consistency issues. Both dinners were wrong. Not sure it it was the server not informing the kitchen, or the kitchen ignoring the directions.

The burger was hard as a rock. The sauce was missing. The tuna was ordered medium rare, and came out barely rare. I was clear to the server to make sure the kitchen could cook by tuna to my requirements. Since the cut it to plate it, I was clear that it does not work to just cook it more, as that never comes out right once it is plated and has a sauce.

We will never come back. Horrible service and kitchen.
