I came here during Sip and Savor Jax for the three course meal. Normally it would be expensive for me to eat here, but the $45 pre fixe menu was perfect for a small taste of this well-known restaurant in San Marco. You can make a reservation via OpenTable, which I recommend. It was a quiet, rainy night when I... More

Overall, I believe Matthew's is the best restaurant in Jacksonville. The quality of the food is very high, the service is excellent and the room is snazzy and elegant. What more can you ask for? The room is about as upscale as it gets in Jacksonville. The white tablecloths and short red roses make the ambiance very sophisticated, but the... More

Get a seat at the chef's table and let them indulge you. One of the very best dining experiences in Jacksonville. Put your evening in their hands and you won't be sorry. If you bring your own wine (and bring a good one) share with the staff. It's one of the few places where your rewards will far exceed your... More

And it wasn't even my birthday! Such a wonderful way to start a special evening...a specialty cocktail in this cozy bar. Then, onto a spectacular meal with undoubtedly the best food, wine list and service of any restaurant in the area. Jacksonville's most special special occasion dining choice.

We live near an area filled with exquisite dining adventures, but we sometimes drive out of our way to enjoy Matthew's. My wife and I feel that it's like New Orleans - we've never had a bad meal there. In addition, we always look forward to the impeccable service - from start to finish. Last night, our server was David,... More

Excellent service! Everything on the menu looked so good it was difficult to decide. I was expecting the typical small portion nicely decorated plates with drops of sauce but was surprisingly impressed by the large portion. I ordered the "Française of the Evening" which that night consisted of a flaky grouper. It was served with mint spinach, cherry tomato, and... More

Beautiful menu and wine list. Excellent food and service. Soufflés are not to be missed. A treat for all. Dressy casual.

Really enjoyed this restaurant which is at the southern end of the San Marco district. I had dinner in its very comfortable bar/lounge area. Had a great red wine I never had before--a Tannat from Uruguay producer Garzon. The bar bites were sooo good and the happy hour pricing made them very reasonable in price. I had the tuna entree...

Two of us had the tasting menu on a Tuesday and the restaurant wasn't busy. One chose the wine pairing thus the cost for both dinners was high. The amuse bouche was a large piece of cheese and a marcona almond on a crostini, not a palate opening one bite of anticipation for what would be coming. Cheese first? The... More

Kobe beef, pork belly, escargot and seabass... All quite amazing and a great dessert topped it off. You're going to spend some money here, but the food is well worth it and the service matches the food quality. If you're looking for a great place to eat, you found it!
