First time visitor and wasn't disappointed. Some interesting menu options, steak tartare starter was good but not the best I've had. The beef tenderloin with foie gras was excellently prepared and presented. Service was very attentive without being intrusive. Wine list wasn't as extensive as I would expect at such an upscale establishment. Glad I brought my own wine and... More

Matthew's is definitely the best restaurant in Jacksonville which delivers an incredible culinary experience in an upscale setting with professional service. The menu is constantly changing with inventive ingredients pairings. The open kitchen is a show worth watching where everything proceeds smoothly. We continue to check this place again and again and are alway pleasantly surprised

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with my daughter and her husband. This was our first visit. The menu I thought was fairly limited. And the preparations were very unique. Everything was a la carte. And was more expensive than I expected. The Kobe appetizer was 2 ounces and was $45. The escargots was excellent and a very different presentation. My... More

The chefs tasting menu is always an adventure worth taking. We always end up at Matthew's for any special occasion. The staff is the most knowledgeable in town and level of service is unmatched.

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
