    Took more than 45 minutes to bring the second course , the food wasn’t very flavory , was much better years ago . And you must do something with the caustic of the place , is impossible to have a conversation with the level of noise . The waitress was very professional .

    Mati was the establishment I chose for my wife’s birthday. We were a group of 9 people. The only reason I didn’t give Mati 5 stars was because the food took a long time to be served. We were served dinner three hours after Arriving. Other than that, the server was really good and so was the food. I definitely recommend Mati to anyone celebrating an event. Jay

    The food was fantastic. The service was great Unfortunately, my friend and I were unable to have a conversation comfortably because the music was so loud, forcing everyone in the restaurant to speak over it. We were near the bar and the guests seated there were particularly loud. We also waited longer than several tables around us for our main courses to arrive. Would not return.

    Beautiful spot, the booth was far too big to comfortably talk in though. The music was very loud, the staff were on top of water but not drink orders. The menu is very pricey, happy we tried it but probably won’t come back. The price point I expected to be blown away and over all it was okay, nothing special

    Good but I expect to be given my table when I reserved for a table and not wait at the bar for previous clients to finish.
    MatiResponded 6 days ago
    Hi there, Thank you for your review! We do try our best to have tables available for their reservation time but also completely understand that it can be quite frustrating for our diners as well when it doesn't work out. We hope you will give us an other chance and come back soon.

    Honestly I had been in the past and it was not at all up to par as to what I had experienced before. Great service but food was extremely over cooked.

    Having a dinner on a Sunday night was lovely as it was quieter and easier to talk. The staff were lovely and spoiled my friend for her birthday with a card and cake!

    The food was great, but the noise level inside was extremely high, making it nearly impossible to hear each other in our party of four. We were fortunate to find an available table outside and were relocated there, but the indoor tables are almost unbearable for having a conversation, even with your dining partner. The waitresses seemed to struggle with communicating in that loud environment as well. Management should rethink this.
