I had French Onion soup and a house salad. I loved the French soup and have eaten it many places. This was outstanding. My husband had the duck pizza and was a little disappointed. He said it wasn't ducky enough for him. Overall we would for sure go again. House wine was pretty good.

For the evening you wish for more formal dining including real table cloths. Had the steak and enjoyed it with the accompanying "sides." Service was good and the food well prepared.

Living right near Mattison's, we consider it to be OUR place for happy hour - as do a bazillion other people. It's lively from 5 - 730 and then slows down (it's Sarasota after all). The fish tacos are my go-to deliciousness; the Bianco pizza is a well-loved favorite of lots of others. All in all, Mattison's has done all... More

Everything about Mattison's is classy, from the piano player who performed at just the right volume through dinner to the red wine (a nice Pinotage) to the menu offerings to the service--which was just impeccable. There was a degree of elegance that one does not find everywhere. This was not our least expensive dinner while staying in the Sarasota area... More

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.
