“Excellence appetizers through dessert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

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 in a perfectly seasoned broth and the fish itself was perhaps the best we've had in any restaurant. Service was excellent including the kitchen's willingness to cancel a salad we had ordered but discovered we would not be able to manage if we were to enjoy that dessert.

“Excellent everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

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 had the chocolate soufflé for desert and she had the bourbon milkshake. Both were excellent. This is a very nice place, expensive, but very nice. We will go again

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!
