Good neighborhood place
Match 65 serves traditional brasserie fare. Quality of the meats was excellent. We had steak frites and a veal chop. Both were tender and delicious. Totally recommend this place.

Darling neighborhood gem
We had a lovely dinner on a Sunday night at Match 65. It felt like a neighborhood restaurant which is not easy to find in Manhattan - especially mid/uptown. Darling restaurant with wonderful service and food.

Looking forward to returning
We were looking for a restaurant close to the Park Avenue Armory and found Match. There were four of us and we all enjoyed the food. I had the steak tartar and it was the best I'd had since Paris. The veal chops were also excellent. The service was a might slow toward the end. We had plenty of time so it was not a problem.
The espresso was weak and my desert was described as strawberries and cream. It arrived with whipped cream. Technically they were correct but I was disappointed.
But all in all we are looking forward to returning. The good food was the key.

Very Good! Recommended for sure.
I have eaten at Match 65 a few times in the past, but this is the first time I used OpenTable to go there. Always great food, the tuna tartar is an excellent choice for appetizer. The drink selection is great and there's a small bar if you just want to stop in for a break. Staff is always helpful and knowledgeable, and I always leave full and satisfied.

Dinner was great; brunch was not
Very good fois gras on toast; excellent trout amandine. Service was fine, but the non-French waiters should stop referring to everyone, including three middle-aged women, as "you guys" and should stop saying "no problem" instead of "you're welcome." While dinner was excellent, brunch the very next day was a disaster, as they completely neglected to bring my husband his meal while mine was delivered instantly. 40 minutes after arriving, I was finished, and he never got a meal. The waiter's only remarks were that the chef took the orders in order received, and that everyone arrived at once. This was not true, as we were the second party to arrive, at 11 am when they open for brunch.

A TASTE OF PARIS
We go there often as much as twice a week. The atmosphere is very "friendly chic" with small tables very close to each others so expect to rub elbows with beautiful Euros & celebrities. consistent food & service.

great food and atmosphere
Match is a real french bistro with great food and atmosphere. I loved the bouillabaisse and the onion soup. The pizzettas and the tuna tartare are excellent appetizers. Service was very good.

Cute Bistro for the UES
Generally partial to downtown bistros, but this one is cute and well-run. Highly recommend the fresh-pressed brunch juices. Brunch is pricey but a nice setting and Madison Avenue/65th is pretty enough that the outdoor dining on the street isn't a bad option.

Felt like I was in the 7th!
I was at Le Penguin for the 3rd time in 2 weeks on Sunday. It was wonderful, again! I dine out 7 nights a weeks, in CT and NYC, and a tough task master, restaurant-wise. Le Penguin feels like a vacation in Paris..... The staff is knowledgable, courteous, friendly and professional. The menu has something for everyone.... delicate fish, hardy burgers, delectable salads and the best fries, ever! It's a tiny little jewel.
