Many years after trying this restaurant two times, with some skepticism I returned for dinner. I was very impressed with everything! The food was outstanding! Secondly just as important, our Waiter and back waiter addressed our table to all my expectations. I do not remember...his name, but he was most polite, he was very formal with his interactions with me and he answered in detail all of my questions on the preparation of menu items. Because of last nights experience, I will not hesitate to return to Matt's Red Rooster for another outstanding meal. The staff was outstanding! Thank youMore

Matt's Red Rooster is a world-class restaurant. Their take-out menu is as good as ever and also an excellent value.

Dined at Matts many times. This skilled and energetic man has succeeded in providing a take out menu that is the same as dining in. Please go online and place your order. Support this great restaurant, they are working under difficult circumstances and the quality...is wonderful. The first time I have dined "out" in 5 weeks and it was great. Looking forward to visiting Matt soon.More

Matt’s take out menu has been a welcome dinner choice for us while home bound. The service is always excellent and as good as being there. The only thing lacking is the atmosphere of being in Matt’s kitchen. A must add for anyone looking for...great take out.More

Another great meal at Matt’s! It has improved over the past decade we’ve been coming here! Although not on the menu, the kids mac & cheese is absolutely amazing.

Was there a while ago and finally came back a few days ago - no major changes to the menu, repetitive over time. Nothing impressive, definitely overhyped.More

We eat at Matt's quite regularly as it is consistently OUTSTANDING; clearly the BEST in Hunterdon county. The entrees are terrific: I tend to order the Ribeye steak, which is among the best steaks I have ever had; Full of smokey/open fire flavor. I typically...get with truffle-butter on the side. I can't say enough about how delicious the steaks are! Comes with a vegetable and mashed potato sides - outstanding! Ahi Tuna entree' is cooked perfectly; served with a sauce that is so flavorful! The appetizers are superb: The pork belly is crazy-crazy delicious! The grilled romaine lettuce is great; Smokey grill flavor and seasoned perfectly - a must-have app. Last night we ordered Day-Boat scallops as an appetizer - Insane. Perfectly cooked and so flavorful - The BEST scallops we ever had! Deserts: ALL are outstanding. Creme brûlée - A must-have! The atmosphere: A beautiful, cozy, classy restaurant. We typically eat upstairs, which is beautiful. The Service: First: Matt (owner) is very personable/friendly and always greets people genuinely and warmly. The wait staff - OUTSTANDING. They are all pros! They greet customers, provide detailed descriptions of specials and menu items, with sincere passion and friendliness. We tend to get served by Tyler, Luke, Taylor who are the greatest. You can easily see that they LOVE their jobs. They all provide impeccable attention, friendliness to their customers. Total professionals! I can't say enough about the staff.More

Nice athmosphere, excellent culinary skills, great service. Most definitely one of the best places in town to go for a classy and cozy evening, to feel cared for, have a great meal, and leave with a pleasant, memorable experience. Glad to have Matt's red Rooster...Grill in town!More

What a great experience, from arriving to leaving! The food was delicious, you had us at the "Tuna Two Ways"! Maybe a little more soy sauce but it didn't stop us loving it. I then had the duck & my husband the rack of lamb,...both great and the final touch Creme Brulee should not be missed! The service was truly wonderful and something you don't see so often these days, waiters were all smartly dressed, happy to serve and best of all waited until we were both finished before clearing the plates - we never felt rushed through out courses. Thank you Luke for making our first visit so memorable. Highly recommend this restaurant.More
