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.

    Our family attending a nearby theater performance and made Sunday dinner reservations at Match 65. We were treated very well and with great warmth by the staff. The food was truly outstanding and the atmosphere perfect for a cold winter's evening. We would all gladly return.

    I found Match 65 to be a nice place to come eat with friends, I was there with my wife and daughter, it has an authentic Brasserie feel to it. The people are very friendly and the menu has something for everyone. Steak, Seafood even Cheeseburgers and a great wine list. I would definitely go again.

    We had a great dinner. The only thing that would have made it better would have been red wine at cellar temperature. Our server was very helpful and immediately brought an ice bucket so we could get the red Chassagne-Montrachet to about 58 degrees....but it would be even better if the reds were properly stored to begin with. But we had a lovely dinner. Great food, great service!

    We were given a gift certificate and probably wouldn't have come otherwise. Were delighted with our dinner, service etc. My husband, who had steak au poivre, said it was one of the best he had had. My veal chop was outstanding, if pricey. The major downside is the wine prices -- unusually high for a bistro! Even the carafes were very expensive. We were happy we had a gift certificate!

    Located in an area with few down to earth places, Match 65 is a classic brasserie with a straightforward menu and prices. Staff are genuinely nice and service is not intrusive. My friend is very particular about her food, and everything was prepared exactly as she asked. Place is a bit narrow and a bit dark and the tables are a bit close, but that's a brasserie. We were there for a late lunch on Sunday, and a lot of children and babies were brought in, which is the one drawback. (Probably the reasonable prices have something to do with that. Given that it's narrow, dark, etc. it's not a place where I would have brought my own children.) Will return, when in the neighborhood.

    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.

    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.

    My husband and I had visited this restaurant on 2 prior occasions for a late lunch and found it charming and the food pretty good. Last evening we met friends for dinner and it was one of the most awful dining experiences ever! The noise level was deafening, the service non existent, the food was awful (my "special" was bland and tasteless, my husband's steak was too salty to eat) and the tab was high. We won't be back...ever.

    JulieVIP
    Dined on 9/21/2013
    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.

    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.

    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.

    This place is hit or miss. It can be painfully loud as it was on our last visit. The menu disappointed us in that it has had a few slight changes since our last visit. The food is okay but it is expensive for a neighborhood bistro. I used to like Match and go there often but our last two visits make us less likely to go back for awhile. The food isn't good enough to lure us. Maybe we'll bring ear plugs next time.

    Had Father's Day brunch. Ordered mushroom, cheese, potato omelets. Have to rename it: potato pancake. No mushroom, no cheese and hardly any eggs. When we asked for jam for the toast -- this is not an item they serve. A French Bistro -- no preserves. Odd? Came once to table - never asked if we wanted anything else. We would have since we were still hungry. On the positive side, lovely spot. Sat outside on a sunny day. I do not know what the rest of the menu was like since we all have the same item.

    This is the second time I've eaten here, and the first time was fantastic. This time, however, we experienced very poor service. I was in a party of 3, and we were seated at a table for 2. Since we were so cramped, we asked the hostess if we could combine the empty table next to us with our table. We thought our request would be accommodated, since the restaurant was half-empty. However, she denied our request, stating that a big party was expected to come in 10 minutes. After 15 minutes, no big party arrived (and the restaurant remained half-empty), and we ate with our dishes on top of one another.
