Everything we had was great from the appetizer to the main course. Service was great too. I had the Paella and my wife had the Grouper Picatta and both were superb. Only regret was we didn't save room for dessert. Pricey but worth every dime.

My wife and I went here last night for Valentine's Day 2017. Service is superb. Atmosphere, with a live piano guy playing and singing was delightful. The food.... WOW! that is what we both said when we were served and tasted. A bit more pricey than other places, but you really are getting what you pay for. Want to be... More

Six of us had dinner last night and it was such a wonderful, comfortable, relaxed experience. Our waiter, Jerry, was the epitome of what a good waiter should be. He was flawless, thereby making our dinner experience a great one. The food was great - we mostly had appetizers that were all yummy.

Stopped for lunch as we were driving to a Furniture Store, found by accident. It was lovely, very comfortable and pleasant staff. The food was delicious, I had a hard time deciding what I wanted as several items sounded good. I ended up with an Artichoke Appetizers that was fabulous, and Paella also very good. My dining companion had the... More

Mattison's 41 is popular with an older, established clientele. They offer a few creative dishes and many standard "old favorites". I find it a little lacking in substance. But overall, a nice meal.

I had the best seafood in The United State here. Seafood Paella, gulf shrimp.......etc. are one of the dishes I had. Good indeed. Everyone in our group of 8 people was delighted with their choice. I recommend it to the normal tourist as well.

I kept delaying writing this review because the experience was not memorable. Here's what I do recall: The server was incredibly friendly and guaranteed providing me with a meal that met my dietary restrictions and requirements (which did occur). There were no other diners in the entire restaurant who appeared to be under the age of 70. The menu is... More

Very large group gathered around a round table was perfect!!!! We could chat w everyone if we wanted too. I must say my medium rare bison was TOPS!!!!! Everyone enjoyed their meal...only one complaint from our party, her grouper was too small, looked like a childs portion....that was the only disappointment....Lovely job all around!

The meal was wonderful we both had the grouper which was very nice for the main dish. The starter of Arichokes Esther was very special.
