    I ordered the very expensive Kobe steak and it had large pieces of gristle in it… impossible to even chew and swallow. Martini was small and mediocre. Service was great though a bit chatty.

    Dining at Matthews is always a fantastic experience from start to finish with their amazing hostess to the service and of course Top Notch cuisine. We had the pleasure of having Jennifer as our server. She went above and beyond with her recommendations and attention to our table. We love dining at Matthews for a date night or special occasion.

    Staff went above and beyond the typical service expected of high end dining. Each person from the hostess to the waiter’s assistant did more than was necessary to ensure a memorable experience. Even the back of house autographed our custom printed menu to make sure that every tiny detail would be unique and unforgettable. The food was amazing. Our waiter took care of us as if we were being served in his own home. Worth every dime and more. Absolutely perfect.

    Outstanding evening. Robert , the maitre’d, and Bow, our waiter, were exceptionally knowledgeable, prompt, pleasant and attentive. Escargot, divers scallops, rack of venison and a peanut butter souflee with chocolate creme anglais made for a perfect evening. The wine was reasonably priced and complemented the entrees well. I enjoyed a daiquiri and was pleased that the mixologist rendered a cocktail faithful to its origin. All in all Matthews was an absolute delight.

    From the greeting from our hostess to the service and the food everything was excellent. My only complaint was that there was a table of 4 sitting right next to us that could not be any louder. Not just talking loud so I could here there entire boring conversation but laughing like hyenas. Now I understand people having a good time but there are others in a nice quality restaurant. Enough ton them. Had chef’s tasting and almost everything was excellent. Nothing was bad but I might have enjoyed a different cheese. Minor in the scheme of the entire 2 hours. Highly recommended.

    Overall, Mathews delivered innivative parings of ingredients, and inpecable platings. Some protein dishes seemed a little heavy on salt. Their cozy dining room shares an open kitchen, so the noise level during dinner service was moderate. Service staff (valet parking, welcoming hostess, bartender, waitstaff, dining room manager) were all fantastic.

    Matthews never ceases to impress. I have a fair number of food allergies, but the chef easily and thoughtfully accommodated my diet for the tasting menu and it was fabulous. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary and Matthews was incredibly special from beginning to end. Little details like “happy 5th anniversary” was printed on the top of our menus and on our dessert plate. The food was amazing and had all the right flavor combinations. This place makes amazing cocktails and their wine list is impeccable. Jennifer was our server and was simply lovely and helped us navigate the menus like an expert. Looking forward to our next anniversary to go again!

    Jennifer made celebrating my wife’s birthday even more enjoyable with her attention and joyful smile. Sitting at the chef‘s table watching the pros and getting to engage with the delightful staff always makes our pleasure. The food was wonderfully simple, quality ingredients and profound tasting encounter. No unnecessary pretentious fluff to hide inexperience or lack of confidence.

    Probably the best fine dining in town. The bar gets crowded early so we got there soon enough to snag one of the two regular seating tables. The rest are high tops or bar stools. Not great for some bad backs. But the place is just great, albeit hard to find if you aren’t accustomed to the location.

    We were celebrating multiple occasions and of course Matthews is our favorite. The food is indescribably delicious. The entire team goes above and beyond to make your experience unforgettable. But the piesta de resistance is having Bo as your server. His knowledge is like no other. He makes your night a true experience.

    A Class of its own. Matthews has always been a favorite of ours. They exceed in class and etiquette in service and communication skills. We love the option of dining in late evenings, many restaurants of this caliber do not have late night elegant dining. Most customers dress to the hilt, some still think that a t-shirt, sleep pants and tennis shoes are sufficient. We disagree. Matthews's environment demands a well-dressed customer, no excuses. This establishment honors and reflects a by gone era of "Ladies and Gentlemen." We applaud the owners for mirroring this era. The renovation is nice and clean looking, but we miss the beautiful tablecloths on the tables, especially for this elegant restaurant. The music being played through the speakers also needs a change to instrumental only, either light jazz, or the like but no music with vocals. Customers want to be able to have a conversation without competing with the music. Candlelight needs to be larger on the tables, votives are too small to set the mood. Same with the real flowers. Micro candles and flower arrangements are great for a cafe but not an intimate high-end restaurant. Finally, no rolled up sleeves on staff serving, we do not need to see tattoos from any employee of any company. Sam has class in speech and form, he wins. Cricket, our host is also above and beyond in class and etiquette. Over-all, this restaurant is a cut above and gives all of us hope that fine dining does still exist.
