Last Wed, Sept 10, I dined at Mattison's 41 and ordered one of the specials. A sea bass on a bed of unique complimentary light pasta. The sea bass was the best fish I can remember having ANYWHERE! It was full of flavor, pleasing on the palate and just the right portion. I have eaten at Mattison's 41 a couple... More

This was a Happy Hour visit and to taste the Lounge Menu that we had viewed on the Mattison web site. We were not disappointed--we tried everything on that menu and the food was delicious. Our server, Helena, was attentive and described a few other items on the Small Plate menu she thought we would enjoy. We definitely will return... More

Mattison's signature salad with a nice slice of fresh catch is the best bang for your buck, Friday afternoon or Saturday evening South of Stickney not a better place to satisfy your appetite

We had been to this restaurant for drinks before, but decided to try their Savor Sarasota menu for $29. We had a delicious $28. bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and 3 courses. Each course was excellent, artichoke appetizer, scallops entrée and the pear bread pudding dessert! Superb! Service was very nice too.

The local bloodbank works with this location in thanking its donors and I couldn't have been more happier to donate and get giftcards to this location. Always fast, great, personable service and tasty food located in the middle of downtown.

We took friends to Mattison's 41 to enjoy the "three course dinner." Each course was a European size, which we all greatly appreciated. The chef did an amazing creative masterpiece on each course. If you enjoy having a "party in your mouth" don't miss this amazing experience. The entire 3-course meal was only $29!!! It was our third time at... More

We visited Matisson's 41 for Bastille Day and had the thoroughly enjoyable evening that's the norm here. I had the special Bastille day menu, with chateaubriand,and everything was delicious. The french cheese platter was the perfect dessert for me, so I gave the dessert trio to my hubby. He enjoyed the reconstructed pot roast, which is the probably the best... More
