Whether with friends or a romantic dinner for two, dinner at Matthews is nothing less than superb. The food is skillfully prepared and artfully presented. The staff is professional and attentive. While the wine list is expansive, the staff has no qualms about your bringing your own special bottle. Matthews has been, and remains a great addition to Jacksonville.

We had a business dinner there with our group of 20 and the meal was awesome. The wait staff did not miss a beat and had the glasses filled and no issues with our size of the group.

Even if some gourmet guides vote different: The address for Fine Dining in Jax is 2107 Hendricks Ave. And people know that as the restaurant was booked out on a Monday night. Entering the restaurant you stand close to the bar which delivers superb cocktails. The service has obviously become better. May be the reason is the sufficient number of qualified servers taking care of the guests. During former visits this was very often a point you could complain at. Even as chef Merdure was not present personally that evening the kitchen crew did a very good job. There was no difference to notice in the quality of the preparations. The wine menu offers an excellent selection of bottles for every occasion.

There is something special about dining in a restaurant with an open - visible kitchen. Everything going on in the kitchen is right there to see...

We had a fantastic meal here with some of the best food I've ever encountered anywhere. Terrific wine list - expensive, yes, but some nice offerings - nicer than I've encountered in a while. Menu is extensive, diverse and very sophisticated. Seafood offerings were amazing. The room is beautiful - very zen-like - even if the banquet seats made me feel like a dwarf (they are very low!). This is, in my humble opinion, the top restaurant in JAX - just like it's brother Medure in PVB.... well worth every buck you spend. Oh and the desserts!!!!

The food was fabulous! The best my husband and I have ever had! The wine was wonderful, and at an economic price. The service impeccable! We would go every week if we could!
