Matthew's Restaurant - They treat you like a rock-star. From when we drove up to the valet parking and the attendant knew my name (from our reservation) to the wait staff and delicious food. Ryan, our waiter, was very attentive and personable. He made sure we a had a memorable dinner for my wife's birthday, he even presented us with a complimentary glass of champagne and dessert (from him) for the occasion (not sure every one gets the comp, but we had fun with him). The chef's know their food. I had the lamb and my wife had the tenderloin, which were both outstanding, but the winner was the tuna tartar appetizer, the best I've ever had. Not to mention I asked my wife if it would be rude to lick my plate after finishing my escargot (I'm kidding, but it was that good). It's not an every day restaurant for us, the prices are on the high end...but you certainly "get what you pay for" here. Definitely a special occasion place. Go there if you want to treat yourself to one of the best dining/meal experiences in Jax, we know, we've lived here 18+ years and have eaten at literally hundreds of local restaurants. Sincerely, Thanks.

One of my favorite restaurants in the world. On a class with superior locales in New York and Paris. So highly recommend Matthew's. Caviar was spectacular; the lobster bisque, I nearly fell off my chair; and the tenderloin transcended reality and broached the spiritual. When will this restaurant be recognized by the Michelin system. When?! In Jacksonville, we now have a restaurant that rivals the renown restaurants of the world.

My husband took me here for a romantic dinner without kids, and it was amazing! Our waiter was very helpful and attentive - he knew so much about the various wines and what would pair best with our meal. I had the Prime Beef Tenderloin with Pommes Frites and it was melt-in-my-mouth delicious...I couldn't even tell you what my husband had because I was too busy enjoying my meal (although I want to say it was the Radiatori Pasta)! The wine complemented the food perfectly. The dessert was a delectable work of art. We can't wait to return!

We tried the tasting menu with a wine pairing. Food as well as paired wines were outstanding. In particular, the scallop was perfect and one of the best I’ve ever had.
