We have eaten here numerous times but I have not written in three years because the experience, food, service have been exceptional. We called for reservations for five and initially were told nothing was available till 9:00 PM. Later call said we should come at 6:00 pm. We arrived on time and were seated immediately; surprised to see the dining... More

Surpassing all expectations, Matthew's is a crown jewel in Jacksonville. The menu is solidly American and French cuisine and changes given the availability of fresh ingredients. From caviar to fois gras to boar tenderloin, from appetizer to pasta, from tartare to dessert, every bite is an experience in fine dining. Their wine selection is extensive, 24 pages long with generous... More

Matthew's is top rate in food, atmosphere and service. Perfect for an important business meeting or a romantic dinner with your wife. Interesting, and extremely tasty, food preparations. Everything seems to have a twist to it--but in a very good way! Exceptional (and warm) service staff. Tends to be a little on the dressy side, and more formal than most... More

We always come here after an event dressed up. Last night, the valet parked our car, we walked in at 10:15 just to get some drinks. The dining room was FULL, there were several people seated at the bar, and we were told THE BAR WAS CLOSED. At 10:15 on a Friday night. 10:15 on a Friday night. With a... More

Went to dinner last night for my best friends Birthday. Sat next to the bathrooms and kitchen. Food very salty and overpriced, Server was good,but the experience overall was horrible. Check out the picture of the desert I brought home with extra carmel popcorn for my young daughter?

I would definitely recommend Matthews as a creative dining experience! The bartend makes great cocktails, Our server, David, had knowledgeable suggestions about the wines, and our dinners were delicious! I ordered scallops and my husband enjoyed a beef dish. To top it all off, Rebecca, the very talented dessert chef, makes a WONDERFUL chocolate tort...beautifully presented and absoulutely delicious. Definitely... More

Mathew's is consistently phenomenal. We began in their great bar with knowledgable staff and made selections from a world class wine list followed by tremendous starters. Be sure to sample the Olive Tapenade and cheese platter. We progressed to the dining room and enjoyed a wonder multi course meal consisting of Foie Gras, Rib Eye Steak, Fried Parmesan Brussels Sprouts,... More

I tried the 6 course tasting menu without wine for $75, and the portions were just right, though I still ended up taking the last two to go as we ate late. The wine list is very extensive with over 400 selections. The walnut (and date?) bread was very good with a sweet and salty taste. The cold cantaloupe soup... More
