Food was pretty mediocre as was the cocktail I ordered (a Manhattan). Nothing was poor but it’s not inexpensive and there are certainly much better meals to be had in the area for the same or lower price.

The food is always great and the service as well. My only criticism was that I've ordered Branzino fish the last 2 times and what they served was NOT Branzino. I've heard that some restaurants substitute with less expensive fishes.

I eat and cook Branzino 3-4 times a week growing up in the mediterranean. The fish was well prepared, but it was definitely not Branzino.

Great service....

The food was very average for the price. Our waitress barely came over to check on us/offer service.

The noise level was fairly high so hard to hear myself talk at times.

Food ok, overpriced cocktails, served in a small whisky glass filled to brim with ice @ 16.00 dollars! 2 sips and it’s done. Who serves champagne cocktails in a whiskey glass!?
Nice atmosphere terrible staff, no friendliness, no one checked on us to see if our meal was ok, only to ask if we wanted more drinks. We would smile and say please and thank you with no response whatsoever. They all seemed very unhappy with an ice cold look and demeanor as if they were forced to be there, like a part of a communist regime. Will never go back. Someone should tell them a little pleasantness goes a long way.

We live in the neighborhood and decided to have brunch. The decor was warm. We ordered tuna tartare to share and it was a generous portion and tasted good. My husband ordered eggs Benedict and I ordered a hamburger which came medium, as requested, on a delicious brioche bun. This restaurant is a friendly place to eat and everyone seemed to be a “regular”. We hope to become part of that group.

Reliable French bistro - nothing extraordinary, but all very good. We enjoyed the beet/chevre salad, escargot, moules frites, and chicken in a forestiere mushroom sauce, and would gladly order all again. It was a little noisy for easy conversation, but not impossibly so.

Assez bon restaurant français, la salade de chèvre chaud était décevante avec un quart de tranche de pain et un quart de crottin de chèvre et beaucoup de salade verte. La suite était bonne et bien servie. Le service et la deco très sympa. Sympa comme restaurant next door.

This was our 4th visit to Match 65 and it has been consistently good to very good. The staff is particularly gracious and attentive, even when the restaurant is crowded. Classic bistro items like onion soup, steak frites, mussels, etc were very good. A special mushroom soup--more cauliflower than mushroom--was bland and disappointing. The Friday special bouillabaisse was also disappointing--the broth was very good, but with too much calamari, a few mussels, a small piece of mahi-mahi and one shrimp it was too skimpy for the $42 charged.

Fine bistro atmosphere and decor, classic bistro menu, at least some of the staff (and clientele) actually French . Very crowded at lunch, VERY noisy, service kinda sluggish ( and why did the server never take a drink order or tell me the specials? After a pretty long wait she just came over and asked me to order; so I took the plat du jour, which turned out to be a pretty competent sole meunière.

A real Frech bistro. Delicious onion soup. The Coq Au Vin was excellent.
Only drawback is noise level. But we are not youngsters and realize the young crowd doesn't mind noise. We don't wear hearing aids-we just prefer a quieter venue for easy conversation.
Overall, a very good restaurant!

Philippe and his staff continue to impress me with such professionalism.

I will continue to visit Match on a weekly basis.
