    This is the 4th time I have been. It’s always fantastic. We had the Mahi Mahi and the scallops. The cheese plate and a wonderful kale salad to start. Cocktails were fabulous.

    We were made to wait too long (10 min) at check in desk. Turns out half our party was already there. Service was slow. Nice fellow, but not really excellent. Food was good, not great, considering the prices, which were roughly 50% higher on similar dishes at other hood restaurants. Just feels like there’s an attitude there that didn’t used to be, like we’re so lucky to be able to be there, not present at other fine dining spots.

    We have been to Matt's in the Market numerous time over the past dozen years and our experience last night had to be the worst. Matt's used to be our favorite restaurant and we went for our anniversary, which we informed them about. We would of thought we would have been treated with a bit of extra attention, as in the past. Instead we were ignored and treated as if we didn't matter to their business. It all started with our waitress not informing us about the evenings specials which we overheard her telling the table next to ours. Things didn't get better as I sat with an empty wine glass waiting for someone to notice. I ended up having to ask the hostess who happened by our table to bring me another glass of wine, which I then had to wait another unusual long time to get. Of course by now I had finished my entree. The food on this occasion was very mediocre, particularly for the prices they charge. We may not go back to Matt's in the future.

    The food and service was excellent! We enjoyed our lunch but had a hard time hearing each other talk because the restaurant was VERY LOUD! I was surprised because usually restaurants are loud due to the background music. This was just voices. The acoustics, maybe? Could any noise modifications be done to the space? I don't know. The noise went down a bit as tables around us cleared but it was still unhappily loud. I love the room and the view; the ambiance is great except for the volume. Thank you!

    We are big Matt's fans but this experience was a disappointment. Arrived on time for our res only to wait in a queue for 20 minutes to be seated at our table. Cocktails took forever to arrive, and then our wine didn't come until we were almost done with our main course. The portions seemed small, the Octopus appetizer was cold, and the prices were too high. The ambiance is hard to beat, but overall it wasn't great.

    I've been going here for 10 years and always love it. Normally there is great service and good food. Yesterday, we had a server who could not be bothered with us or other tables. She spent 15 min talking to the table next to us, making sure they had their check, talking to them some more, and then barely could bring us water or a fork.

    We were lucky enough to be seated near the kitchen where we could watch Matt plate and garnish one fabulous-looking meal after another. Just stopped after a visit to Pike Place for an appetizer and drinks: the oysters were great, and the cheese platter was varied, plentiful, and interesting! The Mother’s Ruin cocktail with Sipsmith gin was a winner as well. Great location, great service, great food, great ambiance - what’s not to love?
