"This was our third time to Matisse. It's a class act and one of our favorites in the city: elegant, sophisticated and aiming to please. This time, however, there were a few minor notes. First: avoid the pizza appetizer - it's absolutely nothing to write home about; indeed, it had little to no taste. Second, although our favorite wine had just run out the day before, the wine suggested by the restaurant (though ostensibly more expensive but offered at our price) did not really work: it either never opened up (though decanted for 90 minutes) or it simply had no character. Expensive proposition for a lackluster Bordeaux... Should have complained earlier rather than at the end but we were hoping for the big moment which never came. The scallops and duck were delicious, if not as overwhelming as previously. Perhaps the busyness of Saturday evening detracted from the personalized service and higher quality of previous visits."

"This restaurant was an absolute find. As a fan of the artist, I already loved the name and concept, but even so my expectations were surpassed. Between the two of us, we had the grilled octopus and the hearts of palm salad for appetizers, the ahi tuna and the scallops for the main course, and the meringue and the mango sorbet for dessert. Every single dish was amazing, and after 3 courses (as well as oven fresh delicious bread!) I did not feel overly full, because the food was so well made. Absolutely fantastic, could not recommend this more!"

"I WAS THERE LAST WEEKEND WITH MY DATE AND ANOTHER COUPLE FROM POTOMAC, ALL VERY DESCRIMINATING DINERS, WHO WERE THERE FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT WAS MY SUGGESTION, HAVING DINED THERE A FEW TIMES IN THE PAST. THEY WERE IMMEDIATELY IMPRESSED WITH HOW LOVELY THE RESTAURANT WAS.
UPON ARRIVING AND GIVEN A TABLE IN THE BACK ROOM, I INFORMED THE HOSTESS THAT THE ROOM WAS TOO WARM FOR OUR TASTE, GIVEN THE FACT THAT THE FIREPLACE WAS IN USE, OR WHATEVER THE CAUSE. IT CONTINUED TO STAY WARM THROUGHOUT THE EVENING, WHICH ISSUE DETRACTED FROM OUR OVERALL ENJOYMENT. THE FRONT PART OF THE RESTAURANT WAS DECIDEDLY COOLER AND MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE.
THE MENU CHOICES WERE DIVERSE, AS WELL AS INTERESTING, AND THE FOOD WAS SIMPLY SCRUMPTIOUS, AS I HAD ANTICIPATED. SO, THE BEAT GOES ON AT MATISSE, OTHERS WILL JOIN THESE NEW DINERS AS A CHOICE FOR MD DINERS WHO DISLIKE GOING 'DOWNTOWN', AND A FINE TIME WAS ENJOYED BY ALL (IF THE HEAT WAS JUST TURNED DOWN MORE IN THE BACK ROOM)."

"Very nice Christmas Eve dinner. We arrived for an early (5:30) reservation and were seated at a window table. Nice. Food was delicious, waitress was knowledgable and very personable. Overall a great experience."

"This was my first time dining at the restaurant. I ordered the Chesapeake Benedict and the eggs were cooked fully through when they arrived - basically two hard-boiled eggs on top of my crab meat. My mother ordered the regular eggs benedict and she had the same issue. She didn't want to create a scene so she didn't send back her meal. I asked the server to relay the information to the chef and asked to have my eggs re-made. The second time my benedict came out, the eggs were cooked even more than the first time. The yolk was not runny at all, and actually completely hard. At this point, my party had already finished their meals, so I did not send it back for a second time. When I mentioned the issue to the server a second time, she just blankly stared at me. She did not offer to have a manager come out and speak with me or even apologize for the mistake. No acknowledgement of wrongdoing. I will say the ambiance was great and I enjoyed my appetizer of tomato soup, but my main course was improperly served and the way the server handled the situation makes me extremely hesitant to come back. Unfortunate to have left on such a bad note."
