    We chose the experience menu along with the wine pairing. Each serving was outstanding and its quality and adequate in its size to enjoy the full flavor. The wine pairing was extraordinary and generous in portion size. Our waiter was attentive and efficient. I would rank this restaurant is one of the best in Jacksonville.

    I have dined at Matthew's several times pre Covid before I moved away from Jacksonville in 2021. I remember the food and service being absolutely outstanding . Last night's experience was a let down, food wise. The best part of the meal was the beet salad, expresso martini and the wine . The carrot ginger soup and entrees - pasta radiatori waygu beef was bland to point of being tasteless. First time round the main course arrived cold. Guess it had been sitting on the counter for a while before we were served. Our server,David , was quick to initiate a replacement when we brought his attention to it. We spent almost $500 for 2 people. Not quite the gastronomic fine dining experience we had envisaged . Post making the reservation on open table, I called the restaurant to request a booth . I was assured that we would be given a booth. A day before our dinner, I called again to reconfirm the booth. Again, was assured that we have been assigned a booth . We get to the restaurant and are seated bang Centre of the room, 2 other tables less than arm's length away. We had to talk loudly to be heard above the chapter from both sides . I must commend David , our server. Efficient, knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive without being intrusive .

    I went here with my girlfriend and ordered the six-course Chef’s Adventure menu. For the price, the dishes were a little small, but they definitely added up and I filled up a bit after the first four or so. I also ordered the “second course” A5 wagyu— super cool. Cooking it myself at the table was a cool experience and our server, Phillip, did a good job explaining how long each piece of steak should be cooked. Overall, everything was very tasty and well-made. Presentation of these dishes was impeccable, too and I got more expedited with each one. I’ve been to a lot of the cornerstone fine dining restaurants in Jacksonville, and this is without a doubt the establishment with the most attention to detail and effort put into even the smallest of dishes. Would recommend to anyone going for a nice date night, or larger special occasion if you’re willing to pay a premium.

    I cannot say enough about the incredible staff at Matthew's. Everyone is at the top of their game, making every experience at Matthew's truly a special evening. I planned to propose to my girlfriend there and Cricket, maître d', took charge to make the evening better than I ever imagined. She arranged for flowers at the table, a personalized menu ("Welcome Vicki and David"), ensured we had the private table, and together with Robert, the General Manager, help execute my proposal scheme; all making for a magical evening. Bo was our waiter and sommelier. He is literally perfect in every aspect, and both helped with dinner and wine selections throughout the multi-course experience. Our thanks to the cooking staff as well; each course wonderful in both presentation and taste; flavors that always result in enthusiastic conversation about the food and excited to know another spectacular course is coming. Together, Vicki and I had a dinner and evening that continues to reinforce that Matthew's is THE restaurant in Jacksonville for food, ambiance, and flawless service. There has to be a best, and this is Matthew's. Highly recommended with no reservation at all.

    Jess was the bar tender that made us feel welcome. She fired up some incredible Martinis and spicy margarita's for us....all with a warm smile. Our waiter, Preston, was very attentive and guided us through the menu with aplomb . He was a Matthews veteran and helped us find the perfect course selection. This restaurant was an upside surprise.

    Awesome experience. Excellent service. Tried the chef’s adventure with wine pairing. They choose the wine so if you don’t like dry wines then don’t do the wine pairing. You’re better off choosing a wine of your liking. Overall it was amazing (atmosphere, food, everything)
