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

Matthew's is one of Jacksonville's best: the food, most of all, cannot be surpassed. The service, drinks, wine list, choices, all add to the evening. Prices are higher than average but reasonable. Good for a group, a couple, or a single.

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!
