    Trendy tourist spot, overpriced and crowded. Everyone recommended the catfish sandwich, it was not good. The fishwich was ok, lots of bacon.

    We had a wonderful experience at Matt’s in the Market for dinner. The food was impeccable and the service was great. The music was slightly loud but not at all bothersome and actually added to the atmosphere; almost speak-easy like. The server was quiet but attentive in the right way. We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful dinner and evening!

    Jeremy was great! The fish sandwiches were so fresh and the salad was perfectly dressed. Matt’s delivers on freshness and a local flare menu. Just steps off the market. Will be back next time I deliver Seattle.

    Matt's is very busy (rightfully so), but treated us extremely well re our reservations and seating. The bartender is amazing. The service was friendly and very informative. The food was amazing (oysters on the half shell, seafood stew)--I can;t recommend the seafood highly enough--it's all in on seafood, and the pile of shells in the 'shell bowl' was incredibly impressive, underlying how much amazing seafood in in that dish. Would totally go back.

    The seafood stew ticked all the seafood boxes - salmon, halibut, clams, and mussels - plus some sausage to spice it up a bit. Broth was so good! Both the beet and the tomato salads were yummy! Great staff. Can be a tad hard to find, but what a find!

    Excellent location for business lunch. I recommend making reservations as there is a crowd waiting for them to open at 11:30. Attentive service without hovering, lunch was fantastic-we shared an order of deviled eggs-live the variety of toppings. I had the burrata salad special-cool, fresh, a filling summer lunch.

    Don’t bother. We had an 8:00 reservation. Arrived at 8:05 and had to stand for 15 minutes before the hostess arrived. When I told her we had an 8:00 open table reservation, she told us that the table was not available and open table reservations are treated like stand by!! We were upset by this. She proceeded to tell us she could sit us on barstools at the bar! If we wanted a table we would to wait about 45 minutes. She was the rudest, meanest and unprofessional hostess I have ever encountered. We left and I want to tell the open table patrons that they should not make this their restaurant in Seattle. We found a Morrocon restaurant on open table that was delicious and the service was great!

    This is a very special spot to take visitors who come to town and *force* you to take them to the Market. Happily, it sits at a comfortable distance from the hustle/bustle of the touristy Market. I vacillated between 4 and 5 stars, and would have given it a solid 5 up-and-down the line except the greeting and service (outside of our wonderful waitress) felt a bit frosty/forced. That said, solid overall experience - we already have reservations for another visit.

    We really enjoyed the food and overall the people working there were helpful. Our server was pretty rude and un-accommodating. Asking for anything seemed to be a chore for him and most of the time the answer was “No”. One of our guests wanted an espresso martini. “No. We can’t do that”, “alright, I’ll just have an iced coffee “, “No. We can’t do that”. All it is is adding ice to coffee! Just very withholding for being a server.

    Visited from out of town and found out about Matt’s in the Market from IG. Was easily able to make reservations for a weekend lunch on OpenTable. Got to the restaurant and was immediately seated by the window where you can see the market sign- we got lucky! Even then, ambience is great, lunch specials were yummy, and our server was well attentive. Definitely recommend going and will def come back when in town again to try for dinner.

    We came here Friday night for early dinner. We had 1/2 Aphrodite oysters, beet salad, seafood stew, halibut, some rose, martini, and Pinot noir- everything was excellent. Love the beet salad very creative with catalogs, red pepper paste, walnut, and feta. Our waiter Sam was most attentive and provided excellent service. This was a memorable meal.

    If I could put 10 stars I would! Our group was so impressed with our experience at dinner that two of returned the next day for lunch which was equally amazing. The restaurant has a very welcoming vibe and you immediately feel relaxed. The focus of the menu is use of fresh local ingredients with preparations that the ingredients shine. They have an extensive wine list which pairs nicely with the menu items. This restaurant utilizes teamwork which is evident because the service along with the food is flawless. We had a wonderful server for dinner as well as lunch and the same bartender for both occasions. They have a cocktail called 15 minutes of fame which is wonderful. Matt’s is worth a special trip for me from Portland just to dine there. I am a retired Restauranteur and I can’t say enough good things about this entire operation.
