There were 4 of us that had a reservation for 5:30 on very a cold Saturday night. We were quickly seated but it was really close to the exterior door so that every time someone came in a cold breeze hit us on our backs....We adjusted to that as the night moved on. Being that it was our first time here, we decided to each get a different item for our appetizers and entrees. The exception was when ordering the appetizers 2 ordered the mushroom soup along with the calamari and the stuffed poblano pepper which were very good. For the entrees we ordered all fish entrees: Salmon, Cod, Sea Bass and the Tuna. The preparations of each fish dish made them all very good. After we ate, we had coffee and just one dessert. It is very good coffee because I drink my coffee black and yhe dessert was very good, also. The prices very comparable with all of the other restaurants that we go to. Our server Cindy was very polite, friendly and knowledgeable of the dishes and answered any questions that we asked of her. The noise level was high in the restaurant If you are looking for a new restaurant, I highly recommend this restaurant. We shall return.More

What a great experience we had last night at Matt's! We were a party of 6 and requested the private room on the 2nd floor. Cindy was great to deal with when we made the reservation. Our server Dan was fantastic! Attentive, pleasant and polite!...All of our meals were delicious - from the appetizers to the desserts and coffee. I am a vegan and the "Chef's Vegan Special" is such a welcome addition to the menu. We truly look forward to dining here again.More

We made reservations (recommended) and found parking space on premise, downtown Flemington. Upon arrival we were promptly greeted and seated. The place was busy with happy looking patrons. Tables with cloth cover and moderate comfortable chairs. The noise in the tight quarters was moderate to...high borderline allowing for conversation. The menu was varied, wait staff attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. The food was nicely presented and tasty. BYOB with good drinking accessories.More

One of the best restaurants in the area. Cute red cottage on a quiet side street. Main floor has an open kitchen, there is more seating upstairs. Service is friendly and stellar. The servers have a great grasp of the menu. The menu is creative....Try their mushroom soup, it’s delicious. We had stuffed cod with a perfect sauce. This BYOB is a must do. They do everything right here!More

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

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.

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

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
