Great Place for Lunch

Joined a friend here for lunch and the service was great, and the food quite good. Soups, salads, sandwiches and more - all seemed very fresh.

This is a classy restaurant without the snobbery. We had excellent service, and she really knew the menu and the food. We each (4) had a different dinner, and we were all very pleased. The Ahi tuna special was exceptional! Everything tasted so fresh - nothing had been sitting under warmers getting dried out. Here it is the middle of... More

We have been going to Mattison's 41 New Year's Eve Event for years. The event has been on the decline for the past two years. The meal is wonderful, as usual. But the other festivities have deteriorated over the past two years. In the past it was a single price for the meal, entertainment, and new year's extras (champagne, hats,... More

Food was okay, Music was supposedly latin music, as far as we're concerned it was honky tonc at best and you couldn't hardly hear it sitting next to the bar. They started playing at 8:00 and at 9:30 the two piece band was sitting at the bar having a drink. Prime rib was good but we never saw the waiter... More

We were three couples going to have a pleasant quiet dinner. As you walked in, the noise was blasting. We ask for a somewhat quiet table so that we could have a quiet dinner with friendly conversations.

Been here three times for happy hour, the popular Florida tradition for the early supper birds, and always enjoyed the small plates (especially the crunchy calamari and the pork belly tacos). Excellent cocktails, too. Very accommodating staff (Thanks, Sean!) rounds up the pleasant, laid back experience. One quibble: the otherwise excellent piano player can drown out conversation in the bar... More
