There's a reason Match has been a cornerstone of the SoNo dining scene - clever dishes , a fun staff, and a great vibe all combine to make for a phenomenal night.

It was our first visit to Match and it definitely lived up the hype! The only thing I would've liked was a cocktail menu because it's so difficult to talk and listen with masks on. A Valentine's Day cocktail would have been fun! Your wine list is amazing so that covers a lot!

Match offered us an extremely memorable experience! The staff was helpful and welcoming from the moment we walked in until we left. We sat at the bar and the bartender was extremely efficient and knowledgable! He insisted we try one of his margaritas and it was one of the best we've ever had. The food was absolutely phenomenal and the restaurant itself was beautiful. We can't wait to return!

Food was , meh. Pork was ordered at medium but over cooked and dry. The apple crumble topping was burned. For the price I would have expected everything to be better

We are regulars at Match. We are never disappointed. The service is outstanding. Efficient and considerate. The menu is varied and one thing is better than the next. The food quality is second to none. During these COVID times we cannot feel any safer than we have each time we visit. If you haven't been you are missing out on one of the great ones.

Such a wonderful experience! Haven't been out for a Girls night since the Pandemic. We ventured out and had the best experience. It was a cold night so we sat inside and didn't have any concerns.

Food was superb. Atmosphere made us feel special and reminded us of more relaxed times. Service was above and beyond. Safety precautions top notch. We highly recommend Match!

Only thing is the covid precautions set up. Just not the same feeling of service or warmth. Would be nice if they added some table centerpieces or candles to lighten the mood in the room.

Host was nice, offered mask. Service was a bot uncoordinated, multiple staff members asking same thing. At some point the waiter threw a joke that we have 2 min to finish the drinks... food was good and delivered promptly. We had garlic bread... could use a bit more seasoning but great if you can’t eat salty. Beef tartar was very good... i would add capers or dijon mustard... Tiramisu was the highlight... very tasty. Overall nice place for everyday dinner.

Food was absolutely fantastic starting with the octopus and foie gras and finishing with the black truffle pasta. Match is one of if not the best restaurant in Fairfield County. So says this foodie who has dined at some of the best places in NYC like Le Bernardin and Daniels.
Please keep up the great work!

Excellent! Cocktails were amazing. Had the Yes Juan! The dinner small plates great- they made them gluten free for us and you would never know they altered it. Pasta out of this world! Every plate was licked clean.

Overall great experience, food and drinks were awesome. I just wish that the service had been a bit quicker, especially considering the time limit. We were waiting almost 20mins before a server came to greet us.

Always consistently good food, they have done a great job with separate tables and plexus shields , high ceilings certainly give some comfort to deals with space and air flow

Went to Match mid week during COVID for a break - although the restaurant was about half full, the food as usual was outstanding, the service was terrific and the care to maintain proper separation between guests was effective yet unobtrusive. They added an automatic 20% gratuity to the bill (which we added to!) is appropriate given the current circumstances- need to help our restaurants care for their workers! All in all, glad we went and fully enjoyed the experience at Match!
