Our first visit to Matthew's and we will be back. It is very convenient to the Jacksonville Theatre. The food was excellent. We told them about our theatre timing and they accommodated us. A little pricey for Jacksonville.

I emailed the restaurant before posting my review hoping for an apology or explanation, but they did not respond. We went on New Year's Eve, so of course we had plans following dinner and when I spoke with the person who phoned to confirm our reservation, she stated dinner would take an hour to an hour and a half.

My wife and I were in the Jacksonville area to meet up with my youngest niece and her boyfriend to celebrate my niece's graduation with her associate's degree in business. We told her we wanted to take her to dinner and she could pick anything/anywhere. She chose Matthew's and had never been there before either. Her boyfriend is a restaurant... More

I ate here twice in one week while in town for business (it was that good)! Imaginative flavones combined into delicious bites. Get the escargots, the pork belly, the bronzino and the foie gras...and the brussels sprouts...and the sweet potato soufflé. Get one of everything!

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

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
