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

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

Matthew's has endured as a small and expensive restaurant in the heart of San Marco because it's worth it. You know going in it's going to be expensive, so there's no surprise. What is a surprise is how relaxed the wait staff is. They are friendly and knowledgeable, not stuffy or impersonal. The atmosphere is sophisticated but also not stuffy.... More

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. We... More

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!
