Many say that the Pike Place Market is the heart of Seattle. Located on the third floor of the Corner Market Building, Matt’s in the Market is in the center of it all. Offering spectacular views of Elliott Bay, the Olympics, and the Market’s famous clock through its charming arched windows, Matt’s intimate setting makes you feel you are part of the ceaseless ebb and flow of the Market, witness to the very heartbeat of our beautiful city.
Savoring every morsel of this blissfully delicious food, you realize that here in the heart of Seattle, you have discovered its soul.
"There is probably nowhere you'll find fresher Pike Place produce being served than at this phenomenally popular spot.... it feels like one of the bistros that once flourished near the long-gone Les Halles in Paris."
~ Bon Appetit
"Matt's is like attending a dinner party where everyone crowds into the kitchen....and the fare has turned this place into a local mecca."
"If the Market could rise up on two legs and man a sauté pan, this is the food it would serve."
~ Seattle Weekly
Words like "icon" come to mind, but that suggests an image of a long-dead saint expecting veneration. No, Matt's is more like a legend that's been given a new life. You won't regret walking up those few steps to the top floor of the Corner Market Building; in fact, you'll wonder why you don't undertake the pilgrimage more often.
This casual gourmet restaurant has the best location of any restaurant in Pike Place Market. .... if the menu happens to list anything with smoked catfish, try it.
"Your first dinner at Matt's is like a first date you hope will never end."
Matt's ranks as Seattle's iconic restaurant...Beneath timber rafters, upon checkerboard floors, the place crackles with urban energy.
