My husband and I have been to Mateos three times over three years, it’s a decent spot. The food is nothing to rave about, but the happy hour is cheap, and it has an awesome rooftop/deck patio that really makes for a spectacular sunset!

You'll love this place! While being rained out one day, this place was the only place still hoppin' even during the rain. Fun atmosphere, excellent staff, and AMAZING food! It has an upbeat and pleasant vibe. We went back that evening for more drinks :)

I'm not Mateo's but I'm pretty sure you just turn up. Only a few restaurants are so fancy you have to book in advance (read:Hartwood but there are so many other really cool places around)!
