Excellent food, great service. Meals are pricy but worth it for a special date/day. The restaurant is in an old house which gives it such a great atmosphere. The owner is a flemington native.

I give it a 4.0 rating. Upstairs gets a 3 1/2. It has no ambience. The appetizers are fantastic however the main courses or underwhelming both in presentation and in taste. The servers are OK, it's a hot or cold/ hit or miss with them. You don't have a lot going in Flemington, as far as fine dining so it... More

This establishment is our favorite place to eat within close proximity to our house. The price is a bit above average but worth every dollar. The atmosphere, presentation of the food and the taste are superior! You must make reservations for the weekends. Always an excellent choice!

We tried several dishes. We began with grilled calamari which was grilled with s light cream sauce on top. It was tender and flavorful. We also had the grilled romaine topped with grated Parmesan and topped with a light creamy garlic dressing. It was excellent. Next we had salmon topped with chimichurri sauce. It was cooked perfectly and was excellent.... More

A little tricky to find, Matt's Red Rooster is a local favorite, but I have to say, I wasn't super impressed. The food was good, and the service okay, but neither were outstanding or memorable. Also, it's pretty expensive. Maybe it was just the meal chosen or the day? But I don't get all the excitement. It'll try it again... More

Overall: We are all ways very pleased to dine at Matt's. I'm not sure if I've reviewed them previously, but this frequently has been at the top of the list to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion.

Description
Matt’s Red Rooster Grill is a contemporary American bistro paying homage to a wood fired grill that “brings out the best flavors” of traditional American cuisine, reinvented creatively. A CIA (Hyde Park) graduate, Chef Matt McPherson stays true to his local roots integrating the finest seasonal ingredients, sourced from local family farms & day boat fisherman into his unique dishes. The restored Victorian home provides a relaxed elegant atmosphere to catch up with friends, celebrate special occasions, enjoy a romantic dinner, or impress an important client. As Matt’s creations pamper your taste buds, the staff indulges you with rock star service, the perfect remedy for a long day or week. With two floors, downstairs feeds off the warmth & energy of a bustling open kitchen. Four seats at the Chef's counter let you feel the heat, as you watch Matt & his team from a perch over the grill. Upstairs is away from the bustle while the porch provides relaxed & refreshing outdoor dining.
