Average food; small portions, expensive drinks, nice staff. I joined their frequent diner club. That was a mistake.

It was an impulsive decision to visit Matthews at such a late time for dinner (9:30pm), but we were comfortably seated and quietly impressed with the menu. We had two servers in our service and one of them was very animated as he described the new additions to the menus as if he had made them himself. On our previous... More

Our Server had an attitude. She announced that there would be wait time between courses as the restaurant is following a European dining style. We were not in a hurry, always enjoy taking our time and all familiar with European customs. However, when one friend commented that her side-dish was not good, the server replied, "Put some salt on it".... More

Matthew's restaurant and staff provided one of the better dining experiences we have enjoyed in quite a long time. Matthew's atmosphere is intimate and high-scale by any measure. The menu is definitely gourmet and, each dish unique to fine dining. I highly recommend anyone visiting Jacksonville Florida, and desires a classy dining experience with great food, drink and/or fantastic chef... More

I have heard people speak of Matthew's for years, but for some reason we never got there. Until last week. It was a wonderful dining experience from start to finish and I am now looking forward to going there again. The restaurant was buzzing on a recent evening, but we were warmly welcomed and seated immediately. The room is not... More

There was so much tempting on the menu that most of our group went the tapas route and ordered multiple items off the "Pass Aroud The Table" and the "Starter" menus. Such items as Lamb Tartare and PorkBelly were delicious and seldom seen. All,items were flawlessly prepared and David's service was excellent

For a high end restaurant it was noisy and we were unable to have a quiet conversation. Other diners were within arms reach of our table. Food was so so and fish was served with skin on (disgusting--would never do that at home let alone in a good restaurant--as me if they feel it is important to serve that way.)... More
