You won't be disappointed with the
excellent service you get from the staff."

I have never - and I do mean never
- been disappointed with my experience at Match. It is deservedly rated as among the very top restaurants in Connecticut. Great food and great service."
Dined on 2/23/2014
Match is an amazing restaurant. It
will be closing soon to remodeling but it was well worth our visit! The carpetbaggers are the best and they have a half price bottle wine deal on Sundays and Mondays. The chef will be owning the new Match which will be open in about a month or so."
Dined on 2/23/2014
Came to eat the "Thursday night
burger" again before Match closes on March 1 for a couple of months for renovations; it was as good as we remembered it, the meat now supplied by Saugatuck Butchery; onions, bacon, cheese with a great char on the outside, and excellent fries to go along with it. We're looking forward to coming back when it reopens, in the meantime, get there while you can."
Dined on 2/20/2014
We've been dining at Match for
years and Chef Storch and Team continue to deliver amazing food, service, and warmth. Best in Sono and a best in the tri-state. (New Yorkers, Match is a few blocks from the MetroNorth South Norwalk Station; you'll be glad you took the trip.)"
Dined on 2/16/2014
Really that is all I can say. The
food is absolutely amazing. The chef is phenomenal. Great thing about going on a Sunday or Monday is that the wine list is 50% off."
Dined on 2/10/2014
Priced right, so we can dine their
often, this is our "go to" whenever I don't feel like cooking. Consistently good food and service. We highly recommend you try the carpet baggers, pizzas and the Match Burger, but the entrees are all delicious and full of flavor."
Dined on 2/7/2014
Don't know how they do it, every
time. Service and food are fantastic. Always a great experience."
Dined on 1/31/2014
For the travel piece on South
Norwalk, and the recommendation to eat @ Match. My early party of four on a snowy Saturday nite had an excellent experience from beginning to end. Not one single misstep, which I guess shoud be expected, as this place, we learned, has been wow-ing them on the main drag here for 14 years. The facility has held up well, the staff is well-seasoned and solicitous, and the menu clearly says "2014." 3 courses with wine was only about $60 p.p. and well worth it. I'm in the area often, and will definitely go back."
Dined on 1/25/2014
Staff was very flexible, we had
requested oysters on the half shell - and they accomodated mixing in with an on the menu appetizer - not many places would do that!"
Dined on 1/24/2014
This is an excellent restaurant.
One of the best in the state. Try the carpet Baggers and the Braised Short Ribs"
Dined on 1/24/2014
Match has a great rating, but the
chef overreaches with his odd combinations of foods. For example, combining fried oysters with steak tartare loses the freshness of the oysters and the complexity of steak tartare. And adding italian hot peppers in vinegar instead of chilis or blackening spice to "shrimp and grits" is awkward and heavy handed. It's a nice place to hang out, but the food lacks sophistication or elegance."
Dined on 1/14/2014
Menu offers many unique and
creative dishes that change seasonally."
Dined on 1/4/2014
Once again we had the good fortune
of spending our New Year's Eve dinner with Chef Matt and the crew at Match in SONO. Delectable duck and pork buns smothered in Hoisan sauce started our meal. The duck was sublime and sauced perfectly! We could have eaten 4 more of them! The filet mignon special WAS special -- a 7 oz filet grilled to mouthwatering perfection topping a mashed potato bed, with a broccoli-beet side dish that defies description (it was THAT good) and cippolini onions done just right. The pasta with squash was sweet and creamy and off-set the beef entrée well. Dessert featured homemade chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter ice cream, and carmelized banana. Exquisite espresso topped it all off. Magnificent!"

We went to Match on Saturday night
for a special night out with another couple who are good friends of ours. They had never been to Match before and were really excited to go after hearing us talk about it. And Match never disappoints. The food, the ambiance, and the service were all fantastic. It was an expensive night, but totally worth it! They loved it as much as we did :) We're also taking another big group of 10 there in two Saturdays - 1/4/14 - and we're already counting down the days!"
Dined on 12/21/2013
Match is simply "THE BEST". We
reserved our table on "Open Table" and requested a special seating for a birthday/anniversary celebration. Not only did we get "our table" in the window but we had our favorite waiter PETER!. The food was superb, the dining experience was superb and the service was second-to-none! We received great recommendations, food arrived quickly and our table was cleared quickly.We never felt rushed and felt like we were important to Match. In short the whole dining experience was a pleasure. We have dined at many restaurants across the world - Peter and Match are the perfect combination!!"
Dined on 12/21/2013
I realized the menu has changed
and the food did not taste as fresh, the quality of the meats not the same. I'm not coming back."
Dined on 12/20/2013
very inventive & delicious menu.
Every appetizer, entree and desert were outstanding. Would definitely go back."
Dined on 12/16/2013
Match has consistently delivered
on a creative and delicious menu of eclectic fusions of flavors. Chef Matt Storch is as much a master in the kitchen as he is friendly and gracious to his dinner guests! The wait staff is friendly and enhances the total experience with their friendly demeanor . One of our favorite restaurants to dine."
Dined on 12/13/2013
I just weny here for my wife's
birthday and they did s terrific job. The manager gave us a lot of attention, service was fantastic, food was amazing, and they were very good on the details from my specifics in the directions I added in on OpenTable about her being a vegetarian, that it was her birthday and what her name was (which they wrote in chocolate on the surprise desert at the end). They really made us feel special. Also, so many great food options, we are going back to try more of the food."
Dined on 12/11/2013
I've never had a bad meal at
Match! Their Brussel Sproats and the bread with the whipped ricotta cheese is a favorite!"
Dined on 11/8/2013
Lively energetic scene with
terrific food and great service. Loved the carpetbaggers oyster appetizer and the forest pizza. Always a favorite spot for a reliable and enjoyable evening."
Dined on 11/23/2013
Our west coast friends are world
travellers who love to experience the "local scene" wherever they go. We requested a table by the window for our group of 5 and received one tended by an outstanding waiter. The food was wonderful and the service exceptional. It was a "matchless" evening."
Dined on 11/16/2013
I will go to Match every week!
Everyone is so nice and the food is fabulous. The fois gras was fantastic--with two kinds and the seared tuna was done just right. I will recommend this to everyone I know and become a regular!"
Dined on 11/15/2013
On a business trip to Norwalk and
ate at Match with coworkers. Great food and service. Neighborhood gem."
Dined on 11/6/2013
Our waitress was really great!!!
She saw I was fishing ice out of my water glass and brought a glass of ice by. She was on top of everything we needed and she was really wonderful! I am sorry I did not get her name."
Dined on 11/3/2013
Been going for years. Truly one of
the best CT dining spots. Can always count on flawless service and an amazing meal. The menu changes often so it is always a pleasant surprise to see what is for dinner (though my husband has happily ordered the same dish each and every time for years). In the ever changing Fairfield County dining scene it is nice to know where to go and not be disappointed/surprised."
Dined on 11/1/2013
Food, service, ambiance were all
fine- good but not great. Expected more from the very positive reviews."
Dined on 10/27/2013
dinner for two, good for
conversation with adequate entree's and appetizers. good service"
Dined on 10/25/2013
Food is always good at Match, but
prices are high for what you get."
Dined on 10/22/2013
My wife and I had a great meal.
The carpet backers app we had was to die for. Fried oysters with beef tartar. Yum. I had the lobster with fettuccine and my wife had the special halibut dish called peanut butter and jelly or something like that. It was delicious. The salad choice was great - arugula. The chocolate chip cookie dessert was also very good. Definitely will go again."
Dined on 10/20/2013
Fun easy going and good food, not
as good as the hype about the place - not sure it is worthy of top place to eat before you die (1000 places to see before you die - book) but a good meal with really good flavor and ingredients shine through!"
Dined on 9/21/2013
Third visit in 3 years and it's
still as wondefully delicious as I remember it to be. The service was also superb. While it was a busy Saturday night, our waiter did not miss a beat, and timing of food and special requests were handled quickly and efficiently. Waiter even noticed when my husband's scotch on the rocks needed more 'rocks' and he brought more ice without being asked. The peanut butter gelato is worth the calories."
Dined on 9/14/2013
Love their house margaritas! And
go for the seseame crusted wasabi tuna...yum!"
Dined on 9/14/2013
inventive food. had great waiter
with great suggestions. we liked everything. it was a quiet night so don't know how it fares on a busy night. but we loved it."
Dined on 9/2/2013
We've only been to Match
sporadically as we are about 40 minutes away, but each time offers even better menu options. Our service was attentive and accurate. I lovr that several special items included ingredients from Sport Hill Farm - not far from where we live. Dinner (and dessert) was fresh and sophisticated. We won't wait so long to go back."
Dined on 9/1/2013
Just reading the appetizer list
made us realize that since we would not be back soon (we don't live in the state), we would just eat appetizers. They were all unique and delicious. The best were the figs stuffed with cheese - melted in your mouth and had such great flavors, the gazpacho soup with crabmeat was very different - not chunky tomatoes, but had great flavor and the sausage and hot pepper pizza was great - it had a very thin crispy crust and just the right amount of kick (though I did put a few of my hot peppers on my husband's slices! The service was great & the waiter even suggested an alternative to the order in which we wanted to receive the appetizers and it was a good suggestion."

Great Restaurant, Great Drinks,
busiest place on a tuesday in SONO"
Dined on 8/21/2013
This was our fourth time back to
Match since moving to Connecticut 2 years ago. It was a beautiful night, so we sat ouside. It was my daughters birthday and we wanted someplace special to eat. Match fit the bill. Everything we ordered was delicious. The bottle of wine was half off being it was Monday. It was truly a wonderful experience."
Dined on 8/13/2013
The food is delicious, although
the menu hasn't changed much in the last 5 yrs. I will say that when you go out for an expensive meal (and yes dinner for 2 can be quite expensive here ) I expect my drinks to actually have alcohol in them and not just a splash. Also, give the price of the meal, I expect better service"
