“Bye Bye Matisse”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Matisse is no longer in business. They were wiped out by Sandy.
It was one of my favorite restaurants in Belmar.

“Is it back?”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Matisse got wiped out during Hurricane Sandy, and re-appeared as a food-truck on the rebuilt Belmar Boardwalk. I am trying to find out if the chef has opened a "brick and mortar" restaurant, either in Belmar or elsewhere. It was our go-to for special occasions (or when we REALLY wanted to impress folks from the big city), and we hope it will magically reappear, sooner than later.
Any information would be appreciated (I've tried the phone number, but can't get through).

“Great food!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Admittedly in recent years I have only been at lunch. But this is great food, great service and a well diversified menu that will satisfy any taste. Today I has a special that as a crabmeat pasta and it was excellent. Kudos to Matisse!

Had lunch in the new Matisse Boardwalk Grill the other day.
Grilled Chicken with avocado and salsa. Absolutely delicious.

“Gone! Victim of Sandy.”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Unfortunately, this restaurant is gone as a result of our devastating storm last year. Was a terrific place to eat - right on the ocean.
