    I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day, and we were completely blown away! Chef Marcus and our server David provided incredible service and conversation in between our courses. The food was absolutely incredible. It was a tasing menu so your meal will likely be different, but I can say with certainty that yours will be too.

    DO NOT order the chef’s tasting menu. We each got the 6 course and it was more than disappointing. I wish I took pictures of each dish. One of the courses was a single carrot cut up into pieces and another was a tiny piece of bacon with blue cheese and half a strawberry. It took about 20-25 minutes for each course to come out and we were there for more than 2 hours.

    We were not sat for 50 minutes after arrival. Offering champagne is nice but you shouldn’t have to because people are standing around for an hour. You should just do that. Overselling a pre-paid menu experience robs the patron of their evening and then venue of their reputation. I booked not only for myself but for my parents at 5:00 in the evening. They also waited an hour to be seated. At 5:00. The wait staff was exceptional as well as most of the food. The organization of the evening was where Matthew’s fell flat. Would not book on holiday. Great otherwise. No offense intended.

    The service was amazing. The quality of food was not on par with the pricing. We did the 6 course meal which had 2 courses that were just half cooked carrots and one piece charcuterie meat and couple pieces of crackers, def not on par with the fine dining experiences I’ve had and for the price. I feel we paid way too much for the food, the fish we had was too dry and not fresh. The only I enjoyed was the escargot aside from the bread and butter.

    The food was the best I have had in the Jacksonville/St Augustine area, the service was also top-notch, we had a really attentive and knowledgeable waiter without her being overbearing. The dining room is nice but the view out of the windows is not great (street plus view on a parking lot on one side). I still feel like prices are high, even at that level of quality. Note: We ate à la carte but ordered 3 courses (plus one dessert to share) which may have inflated the bill a bit.

    We had our wedding reception in their event space last year and came back into town to celebrate our one year anniversary. We loved our reception and had been enjoying date nights at Matthew’s for years before we got married. They are a favorite place for us and now hold sentimental memories that we cherish. They did a wonderful job making our anniversary special and helping us celebrate(: we always recommend Matthew’s to friends who live in Jacksonville and anyone who visits. It’s a must for us anytime we are in town and we will be coming back for many more anniversaries!(: Jess was our waitress and did a fantastic job - thank you to the entire Matthews staff for a perfect evening and for always making our experience wonderful <3

    We dined on a Tuesday for our wedding anniversary (an annual tradition). The restaurant was loud and we couldn't hear our servers when they were describing each dish from the tasting menu when it came to the table. We were regularly interrupted by staff asking how we were doing. Any questions or conversations with the staff seemed rushed and rehearsed. As usual, the food was very good. Unfortunately, the service and experience weren't on par with our typical visit to Matthew's.

    The wait staff was attentive. However a table for my wife’s 2x6 purse was unnecessary. And the manager interrupting my conversation with the waitress about a soufflé for another table was less than unacceptable. The food even though delicious the portions were inconsistent. One dish was spot on. The other was very small for the price. I.e. scallops were 3. Sea bass was proportionate. The chef is obviously extremely skilled but the overall experience was not cohesive. Not sure I would recommend to others without being honest
