Lovely service- we had a great female server. Food was good. Bread not quite as good as it should be for a French bistro and butter was cold but my real complaint is with wine list. There used to be several reasonable bottles of sparking wine on menu and now there is only Mionetto Prosecco for $69. which is ridiculous as it not that tasty at $12. a bottle retail and a true champagne for $120. They used to have some Creme D’Alsace sparklings in the $40-50 range which were lovely.

The place was very busy, so what do I know?
Service was slow so no time for coffee or dessert. We ordered the special of the day, a fish dish. We did not ask the price. It turned out to be $49! It was delicious, but not that delicious. The soup needed seasoning .

I did enjoy the French bistro style. The bread was perfect. I had the crab cake appetizer, which was ok. My friends both had salads which were delicious. The taste satin was not a true satin, but stewed apple quarters on a piece of rather dry pastry. The wine list is excellent, if pricey. I would probably try again if I were in the area.

As always reliable French bistro. Wonderful specials daily. Not to be missed Dover sole on Tuesdays. Prices are on the high side but the cuisine is worth it. Tables are small and tight and it can be very noisy when full. Especially at night. Obviously I’m not a Millennial that likes all that.

A fabulous us brasserie in the East 60's. Much superior Orsay which is way too loud and frenetic as well as Demarchelier, which is just overall bad... the service is terrible and the standard of the food has slipped demonstrably over the last few years.

Authentic French food in a typical crowded bistro setting. If not mistaken, most who worked there had French accents. Lovely French fare, in a neighborhood w/out a lot of choices. You will be humming Edith Piaf upon exiting.

Our favourite Saturday venue for brunch/lunch - the best omelettes in N.Y.
The only disadvantage to Match is the tables, so close together it is difficult to have a private conversation.
The staff are very attentive and the service is excellent, good wine list and delicious coffee.
We will return the next time we are in the Big Apple.

If you can get over the French-style seating of being right on top of the party next to you, then you're golden. The food is fantastic and diverse. Depending on when you hit this place you'll either be all alone or part of the life of a communal party. The mac & cheese is a must-try (add the bacon and you won't regret it).
