"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

"It's an amazing trick to be smack dab in the middle of an epicenter of tourism like Seattle's Pike Place Market and… somehow feel like you've found a hidden gem..." "...watch the sunset over Puget Sound while you sample from a steadily rotating menu that makes you realize that while stuff like 'farm-to-table' and 'we just let what's in the market inspire us' have become restaurant cliches often tossed off without a second thought, they can still be pretty damn amazing when you have a place implementing them with a combination of top-flight execution and total lack of pretension."
~ Thrillist - The Great American Bucket List: 50 Restaurants to Try Before You Die

"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."
~ Sunset

"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.
~ Cornichon

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.
~ Frommer's

"Your first dinner at Matt's is like a first date you hope will never end."
~ Fodor's

Matt's ranks as Seattle's iconic restaurant...Beneath timber rafters, upon checkerboard floors, the place crackles with urban energy.
