Match 65 is an upper East Side neighborhood gem. A proper French Brasserie with the menu to prove it and the ambiance this restaurant is always a good bet and it has been for many years now. We love coming back again and again and the food is always up to standards and the service is very friendly and efficient.
It is a versatile place that works well for lunch, dinner or brunch.

This is such a great restauarant for its food, its service and its ambiance. Great for people watching as well. The bar is big enough to get seat at but small enough to be intimate.

Amazing experience. The staff is so warm and welcoming and go beyond to make you feel comfortable. The food is excellent and the bartender was wonderful. The wine list is fantastic. Get the chocolate croissants at brunch if there are any left. I can’t wait to return.

The octopus salad with parsley and capers is excellent, all the salads in the menu are delicious and the special of the day-sole meunière is exquisite.

The nice thing about Match 65 is that it is near Temple Emanu-El. I thought it was going to rain so I made a reservation for Tuesday evening, after our Yom Kippur services. But it didn't rain, and frankly, I am sorry we didn't go to Donohue's on Lexington Avenue, where we usually go. The service at Match 65 was very slow -- 1/2 hour to get our dinner after we ordered. My son had not eaten in 24 hours, so they did give us bread for him to eat. Still that's a long time to wait. My roast chicken was dry and they brought me French fried potatoes, although I had ordered mashed. Finally, the hostess asked me how my dinner was and I told her about the potatoes, so she brought me the mashed potatoes. Price is okay, probably less than Donohue's. But next year, rain or shine, we are going to Donohue's.

The restaurant was perfect for a quick meal before a show at The Armory. The French bistro food is good - mussels, artichoke, etc. The service is efficient and friendly. There is a full bar and the wine by the glass is drinkable.

excellent service and food. A bit on the expensive side, which would inhibit us from returning. Otherwise, it's exactly what it presents--a good french brasserie close to the Park Avenue Armory.

It is what it is, a nice bistro, a comfort place to stop off and have good food with an attentive staff but a bit overpriced but it is on Madison and 65th so the clientele can pay it. Why not more stars? Well it isn't Le Bernardin, but then again to its credit it has no pretension to be anything other than it is. A solid 3 start spot.

The food was excellent. We had the Amish chicken and the mushroom ravioli and they were both so tasty. The service was quick, the waitress attentive without being overbearing. The noise level was a little high but expected.

The staff is very friendly and attentive and the overall ambiance is quite inviting. I think it is one of the few restaurants where sitting outside on the sidewalk is relatively calm and pleasant - even though it is a cross town street. Given a choice however - I’ll take Match Paris !

We really like this place. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy and the food quite good. But the last two or three times we’ve been we felt rushed. Couldn’t quite understand it because they weren’t crowded. The servers were polite but when you get a sense that check is destined to get on the table in 45 minutes or bust, you just don’t feel fully welcome.

What a lovely spot on Upper East Side, moderately quiet for a business lunch or date, French ambience with menu to compliment the vibe, decent wine list and specials like Foie gras, so worth to bookmark it!
