                                                          Seating hostess was not very friendly. Server was professional and very attentive. I was worried that customer service was not of the utmost importance based on the first impression given by the hostess. She may just need some training on being friendlier and more polite.

                                                          It was nice but portions were a little small.

                                                          It was a very expensive disappointment.

                                                          For our anniversary celebration my husband and I decided to try Matthews and the Chef’s Adventure tasting menu. This was one of the best dining experiences we’ve had. We were greeted warmly and treated like favorite guests by everyone on the staff. Our server, Ryan, was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable and made each course feel as though we were dining in different regions. The food & wine were exquisite. We highly recommend Matthews to anyone that enjoys delicious food, the best wine, extraordinary service and a lovely ambiance.

                                                          We love Matthews! The staff is friendly and accommodating. We had a great time with our friends, Toni and Carla. We look forward to our next visit at Matthews whether we are just the two of us or with other friends too! If you haven't been to Matthews, you are missing a treat.

                                                          We did the dining experience and it was excellent. They can’t tell you in advance what the chef will be serving but everything was delicious. Our server ‘bow’ was terrific - as was everyone else who attended to us. It’s expensive - but it was a unique and memorable meal.

                                                          I went to Matthew's for a birthday dinner and it was tremendous. From my name printed on the menu to one course after another equally beautiful on the tastebuds as well as visually. I have wanted to go to this restaurant for years and am sorry I didn't start sooner! It is fine food at its best.

                                                          Matthew's is simply without equal in Jacksonville. You don't go here to eat. You go for an experience. And they served an experience, filled with amazing food. We went for our 35th anniversary, and our menu was customized with our names and Happy Anniversary, and so was our dessert, with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the plate. Imaginative menu, great wine and cocktail selection, and everything was absolutely delicious. It's expensive. And worth it.

                                                          Great service as always in a beautiful dining room. Waited half an hour to be seated - even with a reservation. A couple hiccups with the food (temperature issues and a sauce that was salty), but the staff were courteous and happy to remedy most of the issues. A few things that I did not mention to front of house is that it might be best for kitchen staff to not be on their cell phones and touching their faces/hair during service. Not the strongest service I’ve experienced at Matthew’s, but I’ve had great experiences with this establishment in the past, and I’m confident I will have more great experiences in the future.

                                                          Food was good - at the level you would expect from Matthews. But we had the tasting menu and service was a little inconsistent. Wine pairings were served far in advance of each course. Kitchen was overwhelmed so long delays between courses. A leisurely six course meal should take 2 hours, not 3. We opted for the added caviar course. It was properly served with traditional garnishes, but no utensils to access them. With no server checking back, we used our butter knives - which were never replaced. Leaving us stranded when rolls arrived. After asking we received replacement knives, but by then rolls were cold. Similar small lapses marred our dinner.

                                                          Why did we wait so long to try????? Great bartender and delicious cocktails. The food - wow!!!! We started with the beef tartare and i compare all beef tartare to Berns in Tampa - this was the first I've had anywhere that compared. It was delicious. The mushroom Anglioto was so heavenly we ordered another plate. Hubs had the lamb and it was seasoned with middle eastern spices - really lovely and delicate and i had the short rib which was braised and pull apart delicious. Finished with the soufflé and a glass of port. Our waiter was attentive and personable. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.
