A word from Match 65 Brasserie (formerly Paris Match)
Offering the French brasserie experience “without the attitude”, this UES “secret gem” draws an “elbow-to-elbow” Euro crowd into its “suave”, “fairly authentic Parisian” digs; “consistently well-prepared” classics at relatively “reasonable” rates and “amiable, competent” service complete the “pleasant” picture.

  • Best for Brunch

    Dined on 8/18/2014
    I've been to Match 65 several times and my best experience by far was at brunch - both for the food and the ambiance. Our last visit was for my daughter's 25th birthday, and while my daughter and I both enjoyed our entrees and appetizers, both the husbands felt their entrees were lack-luster. The macaroni and cheese, in particular was nondescript according to my husband. My son-in-law had problems getting his drinks. Again, brunch for my daughter and I was fabulous both times we went. It was very convenient for the World Science Festival events at the Kaye.

    The food was excellent tasting and quality was increadible. The service was very very poor. We had to ask for bread for the table five times and when we received it had to ask a couple time for plates as well as some butter or olive oil to go with it. We had several different waiters and a long wait to take our drink orders. Our dessert came burnt (Nutella Crepes) and when asked to replace it they told us they were out of crepes. The manager came over and asked how everything was and we told him about the crepes. He brought us new ones that were not burnt. Do not appreciate the lie and the lack of energy to get us a non burnt dessert. Do not know if i would return due to the lack of service.

    Fomos muito bem recebidos. O garçom desde logo se mostrou muito simpático, oferecendo as especialidades da casa. Ao saber que escolheríamos algo do menu da Restaurant Week nos saldou, dizendo haver ótimas opçōes neste cardápio específico. A comida estava muito saborosa, e a apresentação impecável. Aqui ambiente, serviço e pratos bem elaborados formam um conjunto que certamente nos faz querer voltar à Match 65 em outra oportunidade.

    I brought my mom here when she was visiting me in NYC, and we both loved it. The ambiance was very mellow and relaxing, yet it also had an energetic vibe. We had an enjoyable dinner for Restaurant Week, and it was the perfect amount of food and nice blend of tastes. My mom was raving about it as we were leaving.

    Great food I always order from them. However the 4th of july it was awful as the cook had left and they didn't see I had a reservation. The waitress was as rude as it gets. However, the manager was great and also the one server that helped the waitress. I given them 5 stars as I know the food well and it was just not good because the cook didn't do it rather the help boys

    I took my out of town family to Match 65 Brassierie for a pre theater (Armory) dinner. Our server was patient while my grandson questioned every dish. Luckily he was thrilled with his choice - the chicken paillard. Other diners were equally excited by the macaroni & cheese, and the steak frites.

    My wife and I stopped here for a rare night out. The food was really good. She had the rack of lamb - outstanding. I ordered the Red Snapper, a special that night, served in butter sauce with spinach - also, really exceptional. The service was average. Not terrible but not great. We both had crepes for dessert and they were very good. I would recommend this restaurant and would definitely go back.

    Good food, good wine and a good overall experience can be expected at Match 65. The French menu offers few surprises, but all the items we tried were well executed. At dinner, we enjoyed the Salade Lyonnaise, Salmon and Steak Tartare, as well as the Nutella crepe.

    I had the Croque Monsieur, made the traditional way. The bechamel was served on the side and was ice cold. My side salad had huge pieces of lettuce, but was served in a howl so deep I couldn't cut it without making a mess. My son's calamari was tough and chewy. My husband's brioche French toast featured bread that was sliced way too thin. Our oysters on the half shell were opened and cleaned, but not shucked from the shell. Too bad there were so many minor things amiss during this meal. Atmosphere, service and location are great. But when we are dropping $170 on brunch, we want to feel as though a restaurant cares about the little details.

    We were looking for a nice but reasonably priced place to have a Mother's Day celebration on Saturday near the central park zoo. Our party of 8 was seated promptly. Service started out efficiently, but at the end we had a hard time getting our table cleared and dessert menus delivered; the restaurant was full and our server was obviously very busy. The food was very good - a nice Saturday brunch selection, however the wine list has very few mid-priced options. The only compliant I had was that I ordered scrambled eggs and a french fries for my 21 mo old daughter. I was specific on who the dish was for and that the portion should be small. It came out in an adult size for which I was charged $18. That said, we would go there again.

The service was remarkable, the waiters were so attentive and helpful. The food...delicious. We all ordered various things so we got to taste a bit of everything, perfection. Exceptional wine list, we had a lovely Sancerre. Would return and have recommended it to many friends. love love love!

    Our dinner at Match 65 was everything we could've hoped for from a brasserie experience. The menu has many excellent choices, both traditional and unexpected. The food was delicious, the wine list just right and our service from Monica was friendly and helpful. Match 65 is a new addition to my NYC "go to" list. Thank you!
