I've visited Matyson five times over the last three years, and each time I have had the pleasure of a delicious and innovative meal AND the added benefit of stellar service. Me and my husband ate at Matyson the night we got engaged - and...More

Been looking forward to this dinner for quite some time. Had lunch here before but hard to judge quality from lunch experience. Dinner was excellent. Both appetizers and both entrees. Did not order dessert. Service was extremely professional. I work as a hotel concierge and...More

Cute, casual, charming. Octopus was perfectly cooked, but served with avocado that really didn't show it off. Scallops were tasty, as was steak. Chcolate dessert to finish ended the meal on a great note.

I took my significant other to Matyson for her 30th birthday. The restaurant is small and comfortable, but something's not quite right with the acoustics because it's very loud. The food was delicious, well crafted and an exquisite sight. The major drawback, in my opinion,...More

If you want great, homemade & thoughtfully presented food you should definitely try Matyson. Another review said that the food is impressive yet unpretentious and I couldn't agree more. Also refreshing are the staff who are equally friendly and enthusiastic. I tasted the beautiful, magenta-colored...More
