We frequent Mattar's as it is local to us. This time has changed our minds. We had asked for a widow table and Mr. Mattar was having one cleared for us. We had no problem waiting for the table. The hostess told us our table was ready and come to find out we were put at a table that was... More

Wonderful time at Mattar's Bistro. Great cowboy steak, veal scallopini and Dorati fish. The salmon sushi roll appetizer was great and the chocolate layer cake to die for. Excellent service, nice setting and great food.

We have lived here for 10 years and had yet to visit this lovely restaurant. We are so glad we decided to go here last Sunday. A wonderful experience with wonderful food, ambiance and service. If you are ever in the area, don't wait 10 years to visit here! We shall return.

I have been to Mattar's several times over the past couple of months. I have never been disappointed in any of the meals I've had. The quality is consistently excellent as is the service. The atmosphere is very nice. The menu has a terrific variety of food.

I attended a rehearsal dinner for 40+ people at this restaurant, on the lower level. It was set up nicely with a good recessed bar area. The wait staff was professional, and the buffet very good.

It has the feel of an upscale diner with the usual diner fare, large portions of adequate food a little pricey for what you get. Nothing memorable. The service was good, our server friendly. It was dinner, nothing more, nothing less.

I don't live in the area and chose this restaurant out of Yelp based on good reviews and the fact that it has a wrap-around porch for outdoor seating. I didn't think about the fact that it's on a fast-traffic road in farm country (think flies) but neither was a big deal. From the way we were greeted to how... More

I visit Mattars at least once a month, usually for dinner. The food is excellent and always very fresh. For seafood lovers the cedar plank salmon is excellent. Another great option is the Marinated Hanger Steak Sandwich.
