The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I took my husband for his birthday and we both enjoyed the dining experience.

Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to try this restaurant. When I called about a reservation for 15, I was directed to the private events coordinator. Apparently, their dining room is smaller, so large parties aren't allowed in there. That's fine and I was willing to discuss the private room, but the contact who answered the phone (not the coordinator)... More

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

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
