Dinner at Mattison's 41 is a true delight. The artichoke appetizer was absolutely delicious. Almost a meal by itself. I had the special mahi entree which was seared to perfection with a balsamic glaze and topped with pickled vegetables atop jasmine rice. Delish! Hubby had penne bolognese-also a hit. Cherry bomb shared for dessert -decadent and meant to be shared.... More

Why only 4 stars and not 5? Our waitress had too many "tables" and our service suffered but that was overcorrected by the quality and presentation of all the food. Mattison's Friday/Saturday Slow Roasted Herb Prime Rib special - the 16 oz that I had was perhaps the best ever. Cooked perfectly medium rare, great au jus and a very... More

Dining al fresco at Mattison's in downtown Sarasota is always a fun experience. Menu offers a variety of options. Service is great with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Food is fresh, well prepared and tasty. Mattison's is located right in the heart of downtown ...easy walking distance to everywhere!!

We had very delicious meal. The "Pot Roast" was wonderful. The piano player was out of this world good. If you like dinner music/singing with your meal, you'll love this place! Not too loud either.

This has always been one of our favorite restaurants until lately. The service has gone downhill and the prices have gone up. The waitress was not good at all and she has been there for a long time. Slow at serving drinks and the food. No one came to refill water or ask about more coffee. Ordered martinis which were... More

The waitress started off great. She was very informative about the menu and specials. When she came back to take our order which was two of the salmon and two pot roast dinners. And when we told her we did not want a bottle of wine she never asked if we wanted anything to drink. So at that I asked... More

We happened upon this place as visitors to the area. We have only had lunch there but have come back several times. They have great salads and right now at lunch they have a $15 3-course (appetizer, entree and drink) lunch. We had the salmon and it was absolutely delicious. Wine was also happy hour price at lunch. Great service,... More

Made late reservations for a saturday night and had a memorable dining experience. Warmly greeted by our waitstaff person Chad, we received very prompt and nicely prepared pre dinner drinks while being sereranaded by a beautifully voiced singer in the bar.... More
