A plus all around! Unique experience. Funky yet upscale decor along with sweet, personable servers makes eating at a "fancy" place feel laid back and non judgemental. The food was out of this world amazing. I knew going in I was getting the grilled romaine and it did not disappoint! My bf says the crab cakes are the best hes ever had, and that was my meal!

Another Christmas Eve and another spectacular meal...this has become a family tradition and we are sure thrilled with that - while we frequent this fine restaurant as often as our schedule permits, there is always something different about Christmas Eve.....decoartions and seasonal hints are tastefully varied and appealing enough to make your choices difficult at best.....the steaks, the duck, all fabulous.....i enjoyed crab mac and cheese while others tried that evenings special soup and salads.....the meals themselves were perfectly timed, executed and wonderfully tasteful.....then desserts - creme brulee for the ladies and cheesecake for the males - jjust delicious....service from Cindy and team was awesome.....great job Chef Matt and Team - enjoy your holiday, we had a great start!!!!

Mark Stockwell

One of the best restaurants in NJ. You will not be disappointed

Mark H

By far the best spot in Flemington

Karen ToviJones

Matt's never disappoints. The whole atmosphere is warm and inviting. It is lively without being frenetic. The food is always beautifully prepared and ingredients come together in a thoughtful and innovative manner. Started with grilled calamari in a chipotle cream sauce, beautiful smoky and creamy deliciousness. Also oyster special grilled with spinach and parm, satisfying and delicious. Scallops and rib eye melt in your mouth. A meal to remember and look forward to!

Geoffrey Chrisman

Best restaurant in town. Very good selection of food, great prices, and a spectacular staff. Highly recommend.

Catherine Olawski


Gustavo Salles

Excellent meals we were a group of 8 people and we all had a great meal. The chef presented all dishes very well, nothing greasy or loaded with butter or oil. Great balance on everything that I tried. BYO alcohol.

Kimberly Traina

The bacon blue cheese sauce on the filet was very salty and I scraped it off, but my steak was cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were good but not fluffy and a bit bland. I expected more from this restaurant. This was my first time here.

David Marcella

Easily one of my favorite places to eat in Flemington. We got the steak and lamb and both were cooked to perfection. Be sure to make a reservation though.

Lisa Keiderling

Always the best!


Charming, comfortable restaurant with two floors in an old Victorian home near "Flemington Furs" and the outlets. Food is very good and inventive. They specialize in wood-fired entrees, mostly meats, but also a Caesar salad.

Jonathan Ferrante

We have been coming here for years to celebrate special events, birthdays, anniversaries etc. and it never disappoints. The food is expertly prepared with fresh and creative ingredients. The service has always been prompt polite and accommodating. There was one time that we had to wait over 30 minutes to be seated for a reserved table but the situation was handle professionally. If the dry aged steak is on the menu it is a must try, but everything we have ever ordered has been great.

Judy McCarthy

What a charming experience at Matt's Red Rooster Grill in Flemington--and how gracious they were to seat us early without a reservation! Cindy was so kind and truly warm--the entire experience was pure joy! Thank you, Cindy!! You gave us a fantastic memory!

Food is always great here. Everything is fresh and tasty. I've never had a bad meal. It's on the higher end side but worth every penny.

Pat Higgins

Service and atmosphere was wonderful. Unfortunately lamb not on the menu which I had on my last visit. Ribeye was ok but toooomuch glaze.

Michael Buck

John Simons

Great food and great service.

Chris Decator

Matt's never disappoints. It's a great restaurant for celebrations or just to enjoy a fantastic meal.

Gerald Goldstein

We had two different appetizers, the flat bread and brie and the Lobster Bisque. They were both unique and delightful. I had the Tuna which was prepared with three different dipping sauces. The Tuna was grilled perfectly (Rare) and with the sauces had a wonderful flavor. My wife had the NY boneless strip that was also prepared perfectly with a port wine demi-glaze and mushrooms. We share a excellent bread pudding for dessert.

Dominic Paolella

I have never been disappointed with a meal here, and I always have high expectations for the quality AND I have been here at least 20-30 times since it opened. Not a cheap meal, but you get what you pay for.

Joseph Zaleznack

steak was dry vegetables were bland scallop appetizer was good but very similar to new england clam chowder which i orderd and was served right after over prices for rhe quality of what we recieved that night

Timothy Goodell

E Kucharski

Great Atmosphere and good food!!


you've got to get the soup sampler...i've never had one i didn't love. every course has something remarkable. the toppings for the steaks are the perfect addition, and the waitstaff remembers us even after weeks away. this is where we take any friends or family from out of town. outdoor seating available, weather permitting.

cora kiceniuk

Good place

Helen Diehl

Matt's Red Rooster never disapppoints. The Food & Service is ALWAYS outstanding. We would come here more often if it weren't an hour away. Food is fresh from the farm & prepared to order. It's a dining experience!

matthew dilger

Great restaurant! They always update the menu each season so it stays fresh and new. Gotta try the ABC appetizer nothing like avocado topped with crab and Bacon! Yummy!

Mike Gibson

Wonderful! Ate upstairs where it was cooler.

Dorothy Kahlau

Every dish fabulous ! Hard to chose what to order as every dish sounds delicious !

Ron Hartpence



Went to dinner with coworkers. When you arrive, it looks liked an older, large house that has been made into this restaurant. Very nice atmosphere. There was a full house (no pun but we had reservations and were led to a room upstairs. Without going into great details, impeccable service, great food tastefully presented and wonderful desserts. If you want a wonderfully leisurely dinner or have a special occasion/function, I would highly recommend this place.

Larry Rakowsky

Carla Errickson

Loved it

Adam Eisenhut

Best restaurant in town. That may seem like a low bar, but I mean it un-ironically!

Allison Langer

A personal favorite, but I am not alone. Deliciously consistent, rotating seasonal menu and attentive service. Old house converted into a restaurant makes for a cozy setting. Try the signature grilled romaine!

Jordan Gittleman

Fantastic food

Abbas Bayoumi

Best food, best ambiance

William Lannigan

The octopus was amazing and the filet of beef was to die for. I'm not impressed by many restaurants, especially when I know I can cook better than most places, but hands down probably the best steak I ever had since I last visited Ramsey's restaurant in London. Well done!

Tom Wehrle

Great food and staff

David Hudson

sharon yerkes

Food, service and setting were great

ernestine keh

My brother and I regularly come for dinner here and everything is always amazing. It’s also byob which is great. We usually get steaks and they’ve always been good. The appetizers are amazing too. I suggest the grilled calamari on their winter menu.

Trista Carbonaro

Never had a bad meal! Everytime we go as a couple or group food is amazing and quick!

E Gibbons

Seasonally changing menu of amazing, well crafted food. Great for special occasions but you must have a reservation.

Tiger Mastro

I love everything about the Red Rooster. The setting is unique, the decor is modern and vintage at the same time. Terrific service and great food.

Val Gus

There aren't many places with better service(thank you cindy!) or melt in your mouth delicious food. From our appetizer to dessert , amazing!! BYOB and reservations a must! Prices reflect the quality and worth every penny. GO.

Bradley Shaw

best restaurant in flemington. creative appetizers and excellent beef and fish.

James Bower

A top-notch restaurant in Flemington! Service - excellent and professional Food - excellent (we had a variety of grilled and oven-finished food; there was a small issue with underdone fish) Surroundings - We sat near the open kitchen and watched it happen. The downstairs was not overly noisy. Everyone was having a good time. BYOB - unfortunately

Tara Bogan

We had heard good things about this place and wanted to stop in for a Valentine's dinner. It was tough to get a reservation the weekend after the holiday, but we were able to get a spot. The restaurant is cozy, warm and bright, and I love that you can actively watch the "kitchen" while the chefs do their thing. The service was amazing! Throughout the night, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The calamari was the most tender calamari I've ever had (and I've worked on fishing boats - I'm super picky with my squid). My boyfriends NY strip was larger than advertised and so tender, he didn't need the steak knife to cut it. I loved that I could bring my own wine to enjoy. Erin, the owner, came over and chatted with us for a bit which was really nice. The bill added up at the end, but the quality of the food, service and ambiance was well worth the price. We'll be back soon!

Black Panthercr

Food was absolutely amazing and delicious. Servers were wonderful. Our family had a great experience. Thank you

Tim Bradshaw

Crab mac and cheese was honestly best I've ever had. It was incredibly delicious. Ordered a steak as well. It was cooked perfectly and tasted great. Excellent service and a good local wine too.

Henry Ramallo

Always a great dining experience!

Michael Ingram

The best restaurant locally.

Sonya Dellevigne

Absolutely wonderful

Doug Silverberg

Dinner last night with my wife was as wonderful as always. Fresh day-boat scallops offered as an appetizer special were excellent, fresh and cooked to perfection. A dozen raw oysters couldn't have disappeared down our throats any faster - also perfectly fresh and sweet. The cold grilled vegetables known as Summer Chop Chop were also great, nice smokey flavor. And keeping the seafood theme alive, I had a Striped Bass filet with mushrooms (also a special of the evening) and my wife had a generous portion of Salmon - again, both were fresh and perfectly cooked - excellent dishes. A nice chat with Owner Matt McPherson, a final sip of our BYO wine, and another great meal at Matt's is in the books!

Ann Leone-Yanick

Food was excellent, service was excellent as well. There were 4 of us in our party each having a different dish and everyone thought their dish was exceptional. It can get a little loud when the dining room is full but other than that everything was perfect?

Steve F

First time at Matt's Red Rooster...and went there on a first date...dined on the porch. Facility is excellent, service was excellent, server (Taylor, if I recall correctly) was very sweet and did an excellent job...and the food was SPECTACULAR (and by that I mean SPECTACULAR!) As for my date? My Dad taught me a gentleman never arrives with empty I brought her some flowers. As pretty as they were, they were nothing compared to her beauty! What an awesome night! Thanks, Matt's Red Rooster for my most memorable evening!

Vincent Burns

Fabulous food ..... great atmosphere.... attentive staff and BYOB.... will definitely go back ......often....

Richard Garey

Great food, changing menu, great service. Courteous and friendly staff. Would give it 10 stars if that were an option.

Hank Loch

Good. But not great.

Sarah Weiss

Great food, ambiance, service.

angela richards

Food is amazing always delicious, the staff is outstanding, they never rush you, and it's the best place to dine in the Flemington area.

Jennifer Gregg

The service and food are top notch! We make the 40 minute drive just for an enjoyable evening of food and friends. You won't be sorry!

Arjun Manoj

This place was absolutely fantastic. The overall feel of the restaurant was nice and cozy. The service was also something to really talk about, it was great. The waiters were great and the food was even better. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody. Also, this is a very romantic scene.

Sungkyu Lee

Probably the best restaurant in Flemington. You will need a reservation for most nights. Menu changes often

Connor Burke

Food was delicious, service fantastic and the menu was excellent.. However the 2-3 generic sides that's came with every dish left something to be desired. If you're going to create a menu that great, make the whole dish an independent concept, not a different protein with the same sides.

Tony Principato

One of the best BYO restaurants in the area.The food and atmosphere are great.

Scott Lessig

Excellent menu, food and service. I have never been disappointed.

Les Giese

Excellent pricey but well worth price

roberta porzilli

Area Really good

Tom Bennett

while the food is still good, the rooster has lost some of its plumage from its first year...but still the cock of the walk in flemington.

Laura Lyons

The food and service is amazing!

Jonathan Houck

Food was pretty good but the service was pretty terrible. Getting a glass of water was pretty much impossible. Cream and sugar for your coffee...good luck. When we asked for a manager they told us they went home already. If your going to pay $40 for an entree the service should be at least OK...this wasn't close. The restaurant is also extremely noisy. People were basically yelling to be heard by the person next to them. Romantic dinner for two... Not here.

Anthony Vodola

A wonderful restaurant with a rustic atmosphere and a rotating menu of delicious dishes. Dishes are creative, prepared just right, and often use local ingredients. Service is great--our waiter remembered us six months after our previous visit. Charming, but not pretentious. BYOB.

Tom Petto


Lucille Viggiano

Love this place. Food never disappoints

Carl Hinrichs

awesome place

Bert Dreossi

Matt's always prepares fabulous dishes ! The staff there is always attentive. Love sitting at the counter and watching the chef prepare dinner.

Claudia Mandreucci

From the minute we walked in to Matt’s Red Rooster I was impressed, the first thing I noticed was how extremely clean it was and how pretty it was decorated. We were promptly seated and our server Cindy immediately made us feel like family. The menu has a vast and eclectic array of items which was a nice surprise. We started our meal with carrot ginger soup and the shrimp bisque which were mouth watering! Then the real treat began with our main courses, I had the ribs and my husband had the stuffed pork. Maybe the best meal I’ve had in years! For dessert we had the peanut butter bomb ... and it was the bomb! The owner was behind the line cooking and I had to let him know what a great job his staff was doing. It was a pleasure speaking with him. What a gem and right here in Flemington, we can’t wait to go back!

Eileen Lavagno

Good meal choices. Restaurant Week options were perfect.

Jennifer Ciccone

Great place to celebrate a special occasion. BYOB and reservations recommended.

Christopher Polak

Set in a former house with an open Kitchen concept on the main floor and a menu that changes seasonally, always offering fresh, creative, delicious options, Matt's is our go-to destination whenever I'm visiting friends in NJ. Spend the day walking New Hope/Lambertville and Flemington then end it at Matt's!

Eric Duca

Great food

Alex Herbst

I rarely write reviews here, but I had to write one for Matt's. We had dinner here after riding the BR&W train nearby. Everything about this meal was perfect, the decor was very nice, but not pretentious, the service attentive but not intrusive, and the food was absolutely divine! We had the chicken and waffle (a seasonal appetizer), and the pumpkin ravioli to start. Bliss! For our mains, we had the Ahi tuna, and the filet mignon. Both were excellent! For dessert we split the trifle, which was a special that night. I wish I had more of it right now, it was so good! Words fail me in describing the food, it was that amazing! We are already looking for an excuse to go back.

Raul Mendoza

Great restaurant and service was amazing. Nice dinner with friends. Will be back.

Matthew Feci

Place was great, with great food and great service. Looks like the menu changes with the season.

m reviewer

Recently enjoyed a celebration luncheon. Delicious grilled romaine salad, perfectly cooked veggies and good bread. People enjoyed their entrees. Wait staff very professional and helpful. Be aware upstairs room has steep steps if someone has difficulty walking. Could center tables be any closer to walls as people had trouble getting through including servers? Convenient parking. Upstaris perfect for a small gathering ,especially when open just for your party.


The food is always delicious, the staff is outstanding, they never rush you, and it's the best place to dine in the Flemington area.

Robert Lang

Really great place!

Philip Eskelin

Great food & wine.

Jim Roggow

Excellent! Service, food,atmosphere!!!❤

Deb Sartin

Small restaurant in a converted older home. Sit at the bar and watch the chefs create magic. The kitchen is exceptionally clean. The flavor pairings meld in your mouth. The selections offer something for everyone and they have several signature dishes. This was an excellent experience and highly recommend.

Chris Tiger

This place is phenomenal! I would recommend it to anyone looking for exceptional food!

Everything I've ever had here is divine. Matt is amazing and runs a perfect kitchen. This place is a must visit anytime you're in Flemington and is even worth a special trip.

rebecca weaver

I have been a few times and every times has been delicious. The place is fairly small, but they have a private room in the second floor if you are a larger group. The entire restaurant is BYOB. The grilled romaine salad is delicious and the staff has always been great.

Little pricey but excellent food/service!
