Too loud! Very cramped space with tables on top of one another.
But staff is friendly and accommodating and food very good.

We went for Sunday brunch while visiting NYC. Food was great! Service was even better!! I had eggs benedict which was delicious. My friend really enjoyed her brioche french toast, too. I'd recommend this place to everyone.

Blonde hostess was indignant when a taste of a second wine was requested. Had a nasty attitude and felt she was doing us a favor by giving a second tasting stating we only “give one tasting “.

Looks just like a traditional brasserie in France--cozy tables, mirrors, French aperitif posters. And the menu reflects the same tradition. If you want brasserie food--and who wouldn't?--Match 65 is a terrific choice. The steak frites, the moules, the pasta, the salade Nicoise, the frites--oh, those frites, how do the French make them so very delicious every time?--everything is excellent. Highly recommended for when you long for a taste of Paris.

Sono andata con la mia famiglia a cena e avevo prenotato per le ore 21. Quando siamo arrivati non c’era posto e abbiamo aspettato mezz’ora finché sono riusciti a procurarci un tavolo molto piccolo da dividere in quattro ... anche se era per due.... non si riusciva neanche a trovare il posto per i giubbotti. Abbiamo mangiato bene e il cameriere è stato gentile; il cibo buono e i prezzi medio alti come è solitamente ai ristoranti di New York. La cosa che mi ha proprio infastidito è stato il pagamento del conto nel senso che stavo ancora bevendo il caffè e il capo cameriere mi ha presentato il conto e mi ha chiesto di pagare mentre mi stavo alzando dal tavolo per andare in bagno. Non ho capito questo modo scortese e tutta questa fretta dato che bon c’era gente che aspettava. In ogni caso non mi è piaciuta la cosa e non ci tornerò visto il trattamento scortese !!!!

My husband and a friend and I went there after the theater at 9:45. It isn’t a late-night place and there were only three or four tables left. I would have given Match 65 an outstanding rating if it hadn’t been for the lackluster service. We got off to a slow start, and the busboy kept taking away the glass I was given for bottled water, but eventually we were given(?) a server who was attentive, efficient and friendly. That said, we all thought the food was terrific. The country pâté was the best we’ve ever had; we also shared the escargots and the artichoke, all excellent. We moved on to steak frites, steak au poivre (not on the menu but made at my husband‘s request), and bouillabaisse, fabulous. The chef really knows what he’s doing! We drank a great Morgon, a good value at $54, with dinner. We will definitely go back.

The food was generally good, but the bouillaibaise (which was the dish of the day and quite expensive) was too salty and the fish was not palatable)

First visit. Great small restaurant just off Madison-midtown north.
Food was wonderful (the trout cooked to perfection-not a single bone) Service prompt and attentive...on a very busy night-Christmas day. Extensive wine list. We’ll be returning.

Went there for Christmas Day brunch. Love the atmosphere. Friendly staff and very prompt service. The Eggs Benedict were okay, not a whole lot of seasoning. The steak frites was cooked as ordered (rare) but the piece of meat was chewy and stringy. Not something I would expect for a $40 plate. Fries with both meals were good. Good tea and coffee. Blood Mary's are also okay but we have certainly had better cocktails at other restaurants for cheaper price.

Had a very enjoyable Christmas Eve dinner! The French onion soup was great, as well as the perfectly cooked Dover Sole! Also, loved the crepe dessert! Though it’s a small restaurant, it does not feel too cramped and the ambience was casual and festive!

We would recommend Brasserie 65 for its authentic French Bistro atmostphere and food, but it is especially recommended as a pre-theatre dinner venue to anyone attending one of the excellent performances presented at the near-by Armory.

I just moved in the neighborhood and this is just the best find on the upper east side so far. Steak tartare was the best I ever had and I pair that with a side order of Brussels sprouts with cipollini onions,chestnuts and bacon ....delish!!

The place is cosy, the service is very good and the food excellent. The only minus for us, was the very high noise level. Everybody was screaming.
If you’re cool with noise, this place is definitely worth a visit.

Sunday brunch. The food was great but the service was a little on the slow side. It may not have been an issue but for the fact that one of our friends had a flight to catch. Nice atmosphere.

A neighborhood fav. We eat here, or stop for a drink and glass of wine, or even just a coffee and sweet treat at least once a week when we are in town. The most consistent when it comes to food and service. Always a great crowed. Fun for a small group. Also ask for daily vegan soup specials and daily specials. 10 years we have called this our secret other kitchen, delivery is always great too, menu options a little different with more extensive salad options and sides.
If they ever closed, I may consider moving, that’s how much we love this special spot...

Neighborhood favorite. Can be very noisy at peak times. Go early. It’s all about the food. True French bistro. The specials are exceptional. Go Tuesday for the Dover Sole and have Crepes Suzette for dessert.
