The menu had a nice variety. This was the best meal I have ever had. Presentation was top notch. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff was second to none!

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!

“A gem in a haystack!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

Wow! I have eaten all over the world and this restaurant is definitely at the top of my list. The atmosphere is elegant, but not pretentious. The service was impeccable. Our server's name was Kelly. There was a slight issue with the kitchen, but she made us so comfortable that we didn't even notice. We all ordered something different and ate family-style. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Wonderful dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for a special dining experience after a long week of working way too hard. After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we decided that Matthews looked perfect. We were seated immediately at a cozy booth with white linen and fresh roses, and the hostess immediately asked I'd I preferred a white or black napkin. I had to laugh as there had been a few reviews where people actually complained about that, so I know the management must read the reviews! We told our waiter that we had had a terribly busy week, and had driven 2 hours to get to Matthews after seeing clients in Jacksonville all day. He brought us out some champagne on the house to thank us for choosing their restaurant. We were actually so frazzled from the week that deciding on a menu item seemed way to difficult, so our waiter suggested the 6 course tasting menu. It was delicious and perfect for us to start relaxing and enjoy this wonderful restaurant. We enjoyed salmon, bison, duck, pasta, cheese and dessert..each course better than the next. The service was attentive but not obtrusive, the wine list ample, the food presented beautifully and the evening was perfect. This is not an inexpensive meal, but for a special experience it is well worth the price.
