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

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
