We went here for date night and had a great meal. The cheese plate was extraordinary as well as the charcutrie appetizer. The main left a little to be desired as I ordered the lamb which was a little bland. My girl ordered the chicken which had quite a bit more flavor. The only thing that I would say was... More

Three of us dined, three of us commented that it was one of our top five meals ever! It was literally the best steak I've ever had - so good that I wouldn't even let my friends try it... Cool, small dining room just across the street from the famous Pikes Place Market.

Matt's in the Market is a foodie paradise - reservations are needed to get into this great little restaurant but if you are there for sunset you see some spectacular views from their elevated location. The food and service were both spectacular.

We just spent three days in Seattle, and this was our best meal by far. It's a small restaurant upstairs at the Pikes Market, a bit tricky to find. Walk down First until you see The Crumpet Shop, then turn into the hallway and take the elevator to the second floor. Be sure to make reservations as this place is... More

Ordered the crab salad which was delicious, then the rack of lamb which arrived "RARE" I called the server and sent it back to be cooked correctly , came back Medium Rare and on cutting into it noticed it was really fatty , sent it back and got the Halibut which was good but my dinner partner had finished eating...

I read about Matt's on TripAdvisor and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the dessert even more so! The price was probably reasonable for the area, but I thought it was a bit high.

This is a very polished restaurant serving excellent and creative fare in the upper level of Pike's Market. The menu offerings are varied and imaginative, the service is top-notch and the atmosphere is quite relaxed. The prices are what you would expect for a restaurant of this caliber. My colleague and I were meeting a business associate for dinner and... More

Matts in the Market wants to be to the famous Pike Street Public Market what Skycity Restaurant is to the comparable icon, the Space Needle. Overlooking the street that cuts through the market and using the stalls as a source of locally grown fresh produce and fresh caught seafood means different ingredients are featured regularly. The impressive 6' row of... More

I enjoy grabbing a spot at the bar to enjoy a specialty cocktail or glass of wine. The atmosphere of this restaurant is very cozy and inviting, and you get a neat view looking down at the entrance of Pike Place. I recommend getting a reservation if you plan on having a sit down dinner. The staff is very friendly... More
