Our group of six met at Matisse Restaurant for dinner to celebrate a first meeting of cousins. One cousin traveled a long distance, with her husband and sister-in-law, for the get-together. Michael was excellent at making us feel like royalty, from the moment he greeted us to explaining the menu, giving me a wine tasting so I could choose between an okay one and a superb smooth one, taking our orders, and posing us for photos we requested he take. The setting was lovely. The food was delicious and beautifully served. Even the basket of breads and crackers with a choice of three accompaniments (butter, oil, and a tapenade) were great. Everyone liked what they ordered. Matisse is open for lunch so we will return to check it out.

We visited Matisse recently with some friends and had an outstanding experience. Everything from the excellent food and wine, to the courteous and knowledgeable service (Michael was our server) was beyond wonderful. We've been here before and will certainly come back. The visual delight of the Ayres Hotel's collection of fine paintings and sculpture add to the whole ambiance. Ruby, who runs the restaurant, is always professional and elegant.

I travel throughout the Western Hemisphere on a regular basis and I have never found another restaurant that offers the value of Matisse Restaurant. No matter what I have ordered, I have never been disappointed from appetizers to desert. Besides the great food and ambience. the service is superb. I highly recommend this restaurant. If you are in the area then you should look them up and enjoy an outing that will make you want to return again and again.

The breakfast buffet was very nice and worth the price but try and get it as part of your hotel stay as it is $13.95/person.

This restaurant is at the hotel and the breakfast was delicious. I had an omelet and it was very good. The fruit that it comes with was good as well.
