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!

We went to Matthews to celebrate our wedding anniversary - I think this restaurant is considered by many fine diners in Jacksonville as a "special occasion" restaurant. Perhaps because the prices are on the high side and the menu is a bit unusual; however, we were disappointed in the presentation and the actual taste of the food. I ordered a... More
