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

We booked our son's wedding rehearsal dinner at Matthew's after reading reviews. We do not live in Jacksonville and did not have an opportunity to actually dine at the restaurant before booking. The young lady we worked with, Sarah Waibel,was wonderful. When I questioned the small portions mentioned in reviews she assured us that the portions for private parties were... More

Matthew's is probably the most exclusive and expensive restaurant in Jacksonville. You'll have three or four waiters and attendants at your beck and call. They have a nice Continental menu and selections are exclusive and expensive. The kitchen is open to keep an eye on the chefs if you wish. The seating is a bit cramped but the furnishings are...

Long story--it was supposed to be dinner with my in laws but something came up so we made a "date night" out of it. We love Mondays because it is low key and quiet and as a bonus, it's 50% off bottles of wine (though I'd rather be enjoying that later in the week but not complaining!). No pressure, relaxed...

My husband and I went in for our 4 year anniversary, we live almost an hour away, so this was very special to us. We walked in and a gentleman barely said hi and then walked away? So we waited....eventually, he came back, asked if we had a reservation, which we did, and then he left again to "see if... More
