    Matt’s pulls no punches. Have a stew laced with absinthe, that whole eyes-and-all fish plated as if it were still swimming, pasta with lamb’s neck, or a thick slab of house-made head cheese Read more

    Best meal I’ve had in Seattle so far. Tomatoes, eggplant and octopus were all done to perfection and with great flavor profiles

    Great food,drinks and atmosphere. You can enjoy a view of the market if you get a table in the window. It's a busy place so if you want to get a table book it.Otherwise just enjoy your food at the bar

    Highly recommend making a reservation, even for lunch. Daily specials are on point as is the selection of local wines and oysters. Try the deviled eggs. I will definitely be back for the Cobb salad.

    @mattsinthemkt is a must-do local institution that your #Seattle visit includes. Go for the Chips to start. The #albacoretuna & #catfish sandwiches are amazing

    Matt's in the Market is a go-to spot for both tourists and creative edibles, as evidenced by their recent deployment of this frozen, pureed take on traditional kimchi. Read more

    Next to The Crumpet Shop and Chez Shea. Take the elevator to the top floor. Great view of the Public Market iconic sign.

    Get the seafood stew! It's closer to Thai green curry and is an impressive pile of deliciousness.

    Food takes an eternity. We waited 1 hour and 45 min for the entree to come out so be sure to order an app. The arugula salad with Dungeness crab was great.

    Perfect weekend brunch: Matt's in the Market and take in the view. Order the Bloody Mary with a snit of Miller High Life (bartender is from Decatur, IL). Grab the lamb burger, it's my favorite EVER. Read more

    Robbie hooks up what is rightfully ranked the best Bloody Mary in Seattle, with a never ending snit on the side. If you anywhere near here GET ONE.

    Long before the eat-local mantra, we had Matt's, whose dinner menu was based on whatever Matt Janke found downstairs at the stalls near Pike Place. Happy hour offers a good entree sampling. 5-7pm Read more
