    Local gem

    Me and my wife adore this restaurant! A significant changeover in staff occurred last year and it has all been for the better. Food is fantastic, love the tartare! Cannot say enough nice things about the staff. The doors open wide on nice days, and there is outdoor seating too. I dream of France everytime we visit. :)

    Dinner at Matisse

    Dinner experience: food excellent; service was spotty and indifferent; noise level frightful - hard to hear your dinner companion; tables crowded too close for comfort; your neighbor is practically in your lap; we might try it again in a pinch. Too many other French restaurants to try to be unhappy in this one.

    Worth A Visit for a Spot of Something Paris

    I have been here a few times and have enjoyed all my meals. Went last night for the first time in long time and was, as usual, happy with my meal, as was my dining companion. The onion soup could have had a bit more cheese, but was otherwise just fine. The ravioli appetizer was a buttery delight. The escargot with lardon was also quite tasty. This visit I had the leg of lamb and it was very good. The salad nicoise was satisfying as well. I think the highlight night here is Saturday when there's live music that enhances the atmosphere and helps turn the place into even more of a little taste of Paris. Peruse the wine list carefully...you can choose by the glass, carafe or bottle. I noticed another table's martini looked quite bodacious...so next time I intend to give one of those a try. I enjoy other French restaurant's throughout the neighborhood and each has it's own highlights. If you too enjoy French cuisine Matisse is worth having on your rotation.

    consistently disappointing

    I keep wanting to like this neighborhood place. Croque Madame is lackluster, as is Tuna Tartare. I thought steak frites would be foolproof but ended up with at least 1/3 fat on plate. Often forget to bring a second glass of wine. I guess they depend on tourists.

    Not Returning

    Not that amazing. The brunch prixe-fixe deal was not worth it. Their fruit salad=lackluster (not so fresh diced & cubed apples & oranges). Better deals elsewhere.

    Matisse is good food, excellent service

    Our party of four suburbanites had dinner last Saturday night. The service was friendly and attentive. Our orders were well prepared and attractive. The menu selection is appropriate, not large but varied, given the 40 seat size of the place. We will go again.

    Decent food, good service, pleasant atmosphere

    I live around the corner from Matisse and my wife and I, and another couple finally got around to trying it last week. I think what stands out most is the atmosphere here; not overly romantic, but definintely sexy. I would undoubtedly take a date here if I were not married. The food was solid and certainly flavorful, nothing really stood out, but also no one had anything to complain about (and my friend is a chef). That being said, you will not leave hungry- the pot of mussels my wife got was nothing short of tremendous. The service was very good, I never I had to ask for my water to be refilled, they gave us extra bread for dipping, and were constantly clearing the pot of empty mussel shells. In short, there are a lot of similar restaurants in NYC, but coming here definitely is not a mistake.
