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.

We went there for our anniversary dinner. The ambiance was nice, a little elegant with an open kitchen floor plan. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They were extremely professional and attentive. The food was surprisingly good. The wine selection was really good and the wine we choose was worth the price. The whole meal was really good, tasted well, textures were on point and the fish were cooked on point. The gelato was really good as well and brought me back to my time in Rome. The only disappointing part of the meal was the side order of mac and cheese. While the cheese was gooey and crunchy with great distribution of the panko bread crumbs, it was extremely salty. My guest really enjoyed it but for me, it was too salty. Other than that, it was an great experience, and I would definitely return and recommend to anyone looking for great upscale food.

Service was very slow - surprising for a Monday night when the restaurant was not very busy and there seemed to be a lot of staff. Nearly 2.5 hours to complete a two-course meal; maybe they want a “fine dining” meal to be that leisurely? The food was very good but overall a painful experience that consumed our entire evening waiting for food.

Good service although we didn’t receive bread until after the appetizers. The food is terrific, but portions are on the small side. The high prices seem calculated to keep the clientele exclusive as much as, or more than to cover expenses. Especially surprised by the very pricey special dessert soufflé that melted into almost nothing after the sweet sauce was poured onto/into it. But it’s a nice place for very good food.

I would recommend to friends but it’s not the intimate, upscale feel it used to have. It’s loud and the small plate sizzling steak smells up the entire restaurant! I felt like I was in a fajita place and needed a shower as soon as I returned home! Please improve the circulation in the place or rethink that dish.

We arrived early and had drinks in bar. Bartender was very helpful and let us see dinner menu. We were seated as soon as we were ready. We were given water and bread right away, then waiter appeared to take our order. The appetizer took no time to arrive. The waiter was very attentive, but not intrusive. He brought the entrees at just the right time, then later dessert. He even asked if we wanted to wait a bit before dessert. All the food was perfect. My husband got fish and I got the pork chop, which was enormous - I took 2/3 of it home, even after giving my husband a generous taste. The bill was very reasonable, considering we had 3 drinks between us, appetizer, 2 entrees, an extra side, dessert, and 2 coffees. Oh - and they gave us both a complementary champagne because it was our anniversary. All in all, a wonderful evening.

I am pleased that the last three visits or so we have had the same server, Dalvin. Previously servers changed with every visit and service changed as well. Dalvin is consistent. He is attentive without being obtrusive. He seems to understand what we want even when it may not be the customary choice. Food is pretty consistently excellent. Prices have increased substantially over the last year or so but Matthew's is still one of my two favorite restaurants in Jacksonville.

We were greeted and seated promptly. Our enthusiastic male server provided intuitive service . We began with foi gras and beef tartare the flavors were so harmonious. The carrot soup and the beet and tomato were seasoned to perfection. Diver scallops and beef were also cooked with moist tenderness and soufflé and tokjai wine paired well . The entire team worked well together from the initial greeting to the grand finale. Great culinary team creating cuisine for us to enjoy. Will definitely return soon !!!
