Based on reviews and menu we chose Matthews for our dinner in Jacksonville on our way back north. The foie gras was buttery, the pork belly the best we've had this side of New Zealand, and the souffle dessert was unique and delicious. But even above all this was the preparation of the grouper that we shared. It was done... More

Wife and I had an early Monday evening dinner. We ordered drinks at the bar and before they were ready we were seated in the dining room. The bar waiter brought them to our table. Our waiter was prompt and friendly without being overbearing. Wife had pasta and I had the beef tenderloin. Both were expertly prepared and presented. I... More

Sometimes I go there and it seems like the same old menu but I had sweetbreads over pasta in a wonderful sauce. It was great!

Wow! I have eaten all over the world and this restaurant is definitely at the top of my list. The atmosphere is elegant, but not pretentious. The service was impeccable. Our server's name was Kelly. There was a slight issue with the kitchen, but she made us so comfortable that we didn't even notice. We all ordered something different and... More

We were looking for a special dining experience after a long week of working way too hard. After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we decided that Matthews looked perfect. We were seated immediately at a cozy booth with white linen and fresh roses, and the hostess immediately asked I'd I preferred a white or black napkin. I had to laugh as... More

Ate here 13 years ago for the first time and had a great dinner for a special occasion. Seems the quality and service has declined. Hope Matthew does not have too many irons in the fire to keep quality up here and at Medure's. Was great once and can and will be again....

Matthew's used to be my favorite restaurant in Jacksonville. A couple of years ago we had dinner there and both food and service were outstanding. A month or two later we returned expecting the same experience but service was lacking and food was nothing special. I chalked that up to a bad day and returned about a month later but... More
