One of my favorite restaurants
One of my favorite restaurants in the area. I live close by, yet, it has been about a year since I last visited. While a few faces might have changed, the food and the service were exceptional as usual.

A Gem in So No
As someone who knows food and restaurants and lives in New York City, I lower my expectations sometimes when I travel out of town. My meal at Match was by far one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had in a long time. The meal was outstanding; the service great. The appetizers were awesome; had the bacon and mozzarella and the calamari. They were surprisingly spicy in a good way and were great. The pear salad was phenomenal. I had the swordfish, my date had the pork. Great great and great. Dessert was the gooey cookies and the apple cobbler. Both made fresh and the tastes were great. I am telling you there was no one negative in the whole experience.

The ever changing menu allows
The ever changing menu allows Match to be a regular in our restaurant rotation. Been going since they opened, food and service have been consistently outstanding. A rarity these days.

Great brunch if its featured
Went here for Mother's Day brunch with our 6 and 8 yr old kids. Food was delicious. The kids had the chocolate chip waffle and breakfast burrito (half each). I don't think they always have brunch however. Its worth checking in advance.

Creative menu-exceptional service
The menu had a nice mix of fresh, local dishes from the farm and the sea. All were crafted with a unique and flavorful presentation. There was a nice accompanyment of wine, beer and specialty cocktails. The dessert list was short but amaxing! The staff was professional and exteamely accomodating.

Mother's Day Brunch
They don't always have brunch, but when they do, it is fabulous. We were in on Mother's Day, and had an almost 3 hour, 3-course meal. At no point did we feel rushed, and everything brought out was fresh and fabulously prepared. We were even given a delicious donut as a take-away "gift".

We have never been disappointed
We have never been disappointed in Match. The food and the staff were excellent. The best restaurant in SONO, and one of the best in CT.

Excellent food and service
Match has a creative menu that tastes great . It is inventive without being eclectic. The flavor combinations work exceptionally well. The service was very attentive without being overbearing. The Tuna appetizer is outstanding. I had grouper that was perfectly cooked. Even the simplest side dishes such as peas and carrots were prepared using fresh peas and perfectly cooked and expertly seasoned, Desserts are fantastic as well. Everything we had was top quality and expertly prepared. Prices are reasonable for the quality and portion size. We will definitely return.

Great as always
Never disappoints. Food was creative and unique. A bit loud on Saturday nights but it is very popular. Server was hardworking, although not as experienced as some. Did a nice job.

Good but Pricy
Very good food but extremely expensive $$$$. It's a large space so I don't know why it was so loud.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was a great experience as always, the food was wonderful and the service was good. The carpetbaggers are one of my favorite things I have eaten. Every time we go it is a must have! Pizza is always a good choice there! The fish, scallops, and pasta were cooked perfectly. Just was a bit salty on the Gnocchi Corn special. 1/2 Wine on Sunday and Monday night is fabulous!

Matt, executive chef, is talented and proud. This produces a great experience every time.

Match-has been here since 1999!-We haven't been back since 2003... Still interesting and fun food. Esp very good and attentive "wait-staff'.--Suggest going on a week night -& book if more than 2 people.
Matt still greets and makes fab. desserts!!. Will not break the bank, if you stick to Starters and Appetizers...thus leaving 'room' for dessert!! Recommend!

Match gets it right
Innovative menu... never the same old same old. The chef incorporates seasonal items and adds an original twist or two to each dish.
I've only dined here twice, once in its first year and again last week, but I enjoyed it thoroughly each time. The staff is marvelous.
They are attentive without being intrusive, they're bright and they aim to please. What more could one ask?

Another great meal
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.

Great Restaurant, Great Drinks, busiest place on a tuesday in SONO

Unique food with great taste
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.

Better each time
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.

Match continues to deliver
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.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
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!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.

Our waitress was really great!!!
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.

Yummy Brussel Sproats!
I've never had a bad meal at Match! Their Brussel Sproats and the bread with the whipped ricotta cheese is a favorite!

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!

Dinner with west coast friends
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.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
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.
