This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had! I was a party of one on a business trip and they could not have made me feel more welcome. Food was delicious and service was exceptional. A MUST if you’re in Jacksonville!!

Outstanding! Service is always the best. We took our two kids 9&10 with us to celebrate our 13 year anniversary. They made sliders for my 9 year old and my 10 year old got the steak. They were more than happy to put his sauce on the side. This really isn't a place to take kids but of they are well behaved like ours it's no problem.
I got the a5 steak so did my husband. Escargot the best! Steak was amazing! It's pricey here but worth it. Every time we are in town we come here! It's really the best place in Jacksonville!

Ordered my favorite dish, flounder Florentine, and was most disappointed. Fish was boney and tough. Everything else was up to the standards I have grown accustomed to over the last 20 years/w3

Service was good but slowed the busier it got. Check took a while to get. The extra touches for celebrating a special occasion were very nice. Lounge area was very loud but thankfully things quieter down significantly once we entered the dining room. Food was amazing. Overall very positive experience.

Matthew’s is a reliable restaurant for good food and service; unfortunately prices have increased beyond reason in the last two years. I will still dine there but less often since there are other restaurants with equally good food and service that charge reasonable prices.

This is my husbands favorite restaurant and I brought him here to celebrate his birthday. We have eaten here before and I was not blown away. Though this time my mind was changed. The food was out of this world, the cocktails were amazing, and our server took care of us with extreme attention to detail. I love the newly renovated areas. Well done!

We have always experienced consistently high level of service, ambiance and quality of food. The noise level is low, so we never have to strain to hear the conversation around the table. Relaxing lighting. Attentive but non intrusive service. Excellent wine selection. The Very pleased.

Been going to Matthew’s for years. Always great food, impeccable service, and a very enjoyable bar. My top three dishes are the steaks, pork chop, and the scallops. There charcuterie board is a must. Lots of great cheeses and meats, but watch out it’ll fill you up!

Matthew's is always our go to for date night.

There is no better place in Jacksonville for an adventurous eater. The service is always impeccable. The Chef's Tasting Menu is the best around. The flavors are always on point and the wine pairings always compliment the dishes well.

My wife and I always try to add somewhere new to our date spot, but we always end up back at Matthews!

Matthew's is a local gem. It's hard to believe that a restaurant that serves any part of the bottom 90% of the economic ladder could maintain such a high level of food quality. Matthew's food sourcing must be without compare. The chefs at Matthew's also demonstrate a level of creativity that most people who live outside the wealthiest areas of the country never experience. It's a blessing to have those chefs working in North Florida. Add in the fact that Matthew's, while notably high in food quality, is notably low in pretentiousness, giving service that is considerate and intelligent, and you've got a place that's eminently suited for celebrating your most cherished occasions.
