I booked a reservation for Saturday to celebrate Mother's Day early while my daughter was in town. We arrived early for out 5:00 PM reservation but were not seated until almost 5:20 PM because the restaurant was not opened and they were still cleaning glasses.

Our server was excellent and he nearly saved the evening. Nothing but kudos for him. The food, for the most part, was very good. We loved the Akaushi Ribeye--it was excellent. The Yukon pommes puree, buttermilk biscuits, and grilled Spanish octopus were also very good. From a food standpoint, the only dish that was subpar was the brussels sprouts side dish. It was so mushy and lukewarm that it felt (and tasted) like we were eating something that was microwaved--simple unpleasant .

I only gave a rating of good because I do not understand why we would need to wait when we had a reservation. At no time did the hostess offer us anything to drink--not even water. Simply poor service and unacceptable for the price that we paid for this dinner when there are other options available.

Thought it was a very unique atmosphere and glad we tried but not for us. Pretty pretentious and expensive although the selections were unique and food was good. I’d possibly try again for a brunch if they had a buffet or several selections to feel a better value. Seems like such a nice place to feel a little more relaxed, but it’s just one of those places you go if you don’t mind spending ALOT of money.

Also our server, Christopher, was very attentive. Our party included three generations and we all had a wonderful evening.

May 5th 2018. This was a great night. The ambiance was unbelievable. We started our evening off with drinks in the downstairs bar. Small but very inviting. For our dining experience we sat outside on the porch and the view was superb. The food and service was excellent and they gave us plenty of time between courses to enjoy the evening. The peacocks were a delight to watch and the fireflys were definitely a pleasant surprise. The staff were all very helpful and friendly which made our evening even better. Thanks to all of them.

This was our first visit since Green Pastures transformed into Mattie’s and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

The service was completely professional, but friendly and easy. The salads were enormous as well as fresh and yummy with a few surprises.

Two of us had the fried chicken—and there’s a reason Mattie’s is known for it. It was super—richly seasoned, crispy, juicy, tender white meat with a full thigh/leg too. (We both took home a quarter chicken which was terrific cold the next day.) The consistency of the mashed potatoes was weird, but they were still very tasty. One friend got the fish (snapper?) which looked delicious but a little skimpy compared to the portions of the chicken.

The wine menu is really steep. The majority of the bottles are well over $75, with many A LOT HIGHER ($250-$2,000+) which seems out of touch with the reasonable (although still pricey) prices on the menu.

I shared the simple ice cream dessert with my friend. Really good flavor.

We’re happy the charming old house, giant trees, beautiful grounds, and peacocks have been restored and maintained. We’ll go back.

My new favorite restaurant. Sitting outside on the wraparound porch eating Sunday brunch on a beautiful April day was sublime. The huge oak trees, the peacocks, and such a treat to see white peacocks who will pose for pictures! Best birthday ever!

My wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary and had brunch there. The Mattie's breakfast plate and pastrami and eggs were excellent. I recommend dining on the porch outside if the weather is good - have a great view and can see the peacocks hanging out in the trees. This is a great place for a romantic dining experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was wonderful and the overall experience was pleasant. However we were dinning for a birthday. I mentioned that it was a birthday on my reservation and again to the waiter in person. We ordered a dessert for the occasion and they did not even include a candle. I did not expect this nice of a restaurant to sing or comp the dessert but a little extra touch would have been nice for the occasion. Ended up being slightly disappointed at the end of the evening.

Great experience dining at Mattie's. The restaurant itself is gorgeous - beautifully designed. We saw at least 6 peacocks walking around the ground and perching in the trees, making our experience at Mattie's feel pretty magical. The food was great - yes, it is expensive, but it was well worth the money in my opinion. We had the cheese plate and biscuits for appetizers. The biscuits had to be the best biscuits my husband and I have ever had - no joke. For entrees, we had the snapper and fried chicken. Both were delicious. For dessert, we had the monkey bread - which was tasty, but nothing special. The service was great - our waitress was very attentive & everyone we interacted with was very kind and helpful. Planning to go back for brunch soon and would highly recommend.

Mattie's was a hidden gem for sure. Beautiful space and even the locals hadn't really been because it is off the beaten path. Food was very good and wine was delicious. Space wasn't too busy for a Friday night which was somewhat surprising but then again it is a place you go to have a special meal vs. a casual bite.

Two things that stood out and were surprising to me given the prestige that the place carried when visiting in person. #1, they didn't acknowledge the note I left on Open Table about the special occasion where most places do. It was my wife's 30th and we were visiting from Chicago. When they did find out they actually comped both desserts we got which was very nice of them. #2, when we sat down and were greeted, they didn't give any history to the building and there is plenty I'm sure, didn't walk us through the menu, or really build up the experience. To me it's a missed opportunity that every restaurant and especially Mattie's should take advantage of. Our server was great so my guess is he wasn't lazy just wasn't trained to do it.

Next time in Austin would go back again although there are so many restaurants to choose from.

Mattie’s is amazing, we had such a great time there - excellent service from our waiter, and the location itself is beautiful. The menu is very creative with a number of good options which made it hard to choose, but we were pleased with our choices - the duck was delicious, as was the fried chicken.

I cannot speak highly enough of Mattie's. The setting is exquisite- you are greeted by peacocks in the trees and it's hard to believe this beautiful old farmhouse and grounds are so close to downtown. The food was incredible and the portions are substantial. My husband said the Yukon Pommes Purée was the best thing he has ever tasted and I think I agree. The restaurant inside is stunning- I felt like I was dining at someone's home, it was elegant, yet cozy, unpretentious, yet classy. I couldn't stop looking around the room at the beautiful details. I'm obsessed and will be taking every out of town guest here from now on. Also, for people with food allergies, I would definitely recommend Mattie's. I have Celiac so eat a strict gluten free diet, in addition to having life threatening food allergies to tree nuts and shellfish so needless to say, I am not an easy guest to accommodate. They handled it with flying colors and made me feel safe and well taken care of. The waitress even had a run down of the food I could eat when she arrived since I had mentioned my allergies on the reservation. You will love this place!!

Our server wanted to rush us the second we sat down, it was kind of odd. It was early in their brunch service, we were in a mostly empty dining room and he wasn't even giving us a minute to get our drinks and relax. It wasn't the best way to start brunch. The food was good overall (when they say sage-infused sausage they were NOT kidding... very sagey).
