    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.

    To celebrate 20 years of friendship, my friend and I chose to celebrate at Matthew’s. The ambience, wait staff, attention to detail, food and drink was worth the expense. Our waitress, Jennifer, was superb! The food was absolutely delicious. It was a memorable experience.

    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.

    For the price point, the portions were too small, even for tasting. And none of what was presented was more than average in terms of taste and preparation. Disappointing especially for anniversary.

    The food and service are always fantastic. I appreciate that they are trying to be more welcoming to vegans, but there's some room for improvement with communication. For example, I had to have four separate discussions with three different staff members about vegan bread options. At this price point, I think it's reasonable to expect one conversation to do it.

    The waiter was very awkward and lingered a lot. He didn’t know much about the drink menu or the food menu. We went there because of how the place of business offered alternation for food allergies etc…. He couldn’t help with providing other options at all and made it very hard to order. Over all the food was over cooked, I spent over $200 on a meal that wasn’t worth it at all. Highly disappointed!

    For those of you that live in the area, I prefer Medure, the sister restaurant in Ponte Vedra. Mattheews is a bit overpriced with very small portions. Wine list is excellent. Not sure I will return.

    The spot to go to for a special occasion. The chef’s tasting was fun and an experience worth having. We added the waygu that you cook on a hot stone to our meal. The service was unmatched. From the hostess to the several waiters and waitresses, they were attentive, friendly and are very knowledgeable on each dish. It is more pricey than your average meal, but the service and the quality of food make it worth it.
