Unfortunately, the food was cold and the server seemed to be having an off-night. Great menu and ambiance but the experience wasn’t great.

why do they sit groups so close together? i mean they have the entire patio to space groups. can’t the server manqge to walk a few more steps to give diners more privacy?? that’s my only little bit of feedback. love the pizza salad beer and restaurant was super cool!!

Great ambiance and excellent service, but the menu was hit-or-miss. The buffalo cauliflower starter was outstanding. My New York strip was two thumbs and a large toe down. The strawberry BBQ pulled pork sandwich was good. The Cosmopolitan cocktail was quite tasty. We sat outdoors, but light rail line was about 50 feet away and a regular conversation interrupter -- something to keep in mind. The artwork throughout the hotel is a major plus, and I recommend budgeting an extra hour or so just to wander around and experience it. Only valet parking is available, but complimentary (sans tip) for 2 hours.

Completely recommend the roasted chicken with cornbread, mashed potatoes and asparagus dinner! Avoid the banana cheesecake; it has a strange flavor, plus the crust tasted odd also, like it had refrig or freezer burn. Great service, though!

We really enjoyed our meal at Match. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. We had a great window table. Everything we ordered was great, but I would highly recommend the German Chocolate Cake. It was amazing. We will definitely return soon.

We went in early for a quick pre-theater bite. Very professional server understood and made sure we had no delay. A couple of delicious and inexpensive starters later we were on our way. Can't wait to go back of dinner.

Nice restaurant.
Food was good.
Drinks were good.
Staff seemed a little pre-occupied with the LARGE group that came in just after us with a LARGE reserved table.
I think we were lucky to get reservations.
Will come back sometime.

Stopped here due to good reviews on the way to a concert downtown. This is a hidden gem in a boutique hotel. The Found:Re hotel. Great food. The wings were some of the best I have ever had. Great service. Fantastic happy hour specials. Would definitely make this a usual stop on the way to any downtown event.

Great food and great service. Love the whole look of the hotel, lobby and restaurant. Dinner was great. Ordered room service for breakfast. Want nearly as good as dinner. Ordered eggs Benedict which was amazing but cold. The waffle was just that. Cold and no butter or fruit as stated on menus. All in all a great escape ...

Great spot. Will return to check out the bar area since happy hour specials aren’t observed in dining room. And they had live music starting in bar when we were leaving. Our sever Sarah C. was fantastic. She handled a large group that arrived intermittently with ease.

The food was VERY good! We had the Match Burger - so much flavor! Also tried one of their pizzas - VERY good as well! Prices are "ok" - pretty average in Scottsdale.

This was my second visit to Match and I was even happier with this restaurant than during my first visit. Everyone from the valet person, to waitress and hostess knew we were in a crunch for time (due to having tickets to an event downtown), and they made sure we were served quickly and everything was satisfactory. My friends split the fig pizza and loved it and I had the arugula/beet salad with salmon on the top and it was fantastic--the salmon was done perfectly!!!! We had a great start to a fun evening and will be sure to go back again!

Visited for my hubby’s birthday with friends. Friends cancelled but we still had a great time. They do not have a kids menu, but it was easy pulling together sides for my 4-yr old. Excellent service, great atmosphere. Will definitely dine again.

We went with another couple. The server let us try two wines before we got a bottle to decide which we liked better—when does that happen? My husband’s strip steak was more gristle than meat and when we told the server, he took it off the bill! We met the manager and told him our server was excellent. Turns out our server was just promoted to manager! Good ambiance. There was really good live music in the patio with misters. Sweet!

Excellent brunch! The staff was very attentive and the food was amazing. I highly recommend the salsa with the breakfast potatoes! It’s a little tricky to figure out where to check in as it is connected to an art museum.

Beautiful atmosphere and good service by wait staff but the food is average and my tangeray and tonic tasted like dishwasher.
They did bring me a fresh drink. Wanted to like this place but there are many other better places to dine.

My spouse and I have driven by this restaurant many times in our travels and have always commented how nice it looked. We finally dined there last Saturday during Phoenix's Restaurant Week. We were very glad we did! The restaurant is beautifully decorated. We sat inside along the generously-sized open windows which provided a nice warm breeze and a nice view of the small park next to the restaurant. We both ordered from the 4-course Restaurant Week menu. The food was delicious; the portions served of each course were more than generous. The only negative to our experience was our waiter. He was poorly trained and was unable to answer any of the questions that we posed about various menu alternatives. He tried his best but had to frequently disappear into the kitchen in order to get the answers to our questions. However, setting aside the service issue, our experience at Match was so positive -food quality, minimal noise level, beautifully decorated - that we will most definitely give this restaurant another try in the near future (hoping for a different waiter of course!).

This was a very decent hotel restaurant option. We ate on the early side so there wasn't much action but we were please with the food, the wine and the service.

We came to Match for Mother’s Day and loved it! Food and drinks were superb, the ambiance of the restaurant was trendy without being snobby, the service was great, and the cost of a meal doesn’t break the bank. We sat at a table that had a fun view of the street, however it was not at all noisy from traffic, which was very nice. My mom enjoyed it here so much she wants to meet up at Match again very soon.

We wanted to try a place near The Nash Jazz Club and this restaurant is quit close.

The restaurant has a really cool vibe. There is a dog friendly patio, as well. Very good and friendly service from everyone. Happy Hour is just in the bar.

Both of us ordered the delicious barbecue pork sandwich. Great choice!

Had a lovely date night dinner with the honey here. We started with cocktails which included their signature Match drink and a watermelon mule. Dinner was equally delicious! I had the spicy chicken no bun ( more bunny food please!) and my hot date has the chicken pad deconstructed pad Thai. Our server was very pleasant and came by to check on us during our meal, but allowed us to just enjoy our date night in a leisurely easy-going manner. The ambience here was really nice too! We sat in the patio seating outdoors with some fireplaces and surrounded by some sculptures and artwork. It is a really beautiful space and the food and service and drinks all Completed the look!

The only thing I didn't like about this place was the service. The service was slow. Other than that, it's a good place to hangout and have a few drinks. I wouldn't go out my way to come here

This restaurant is a lovely neighborhood jewel. High quality food and a great happy hour. My only disappointment was the disappearance of the seafood linguini on the dinner menu but they have promised me they will bring a version of it back! You just cannot ask for better service.

Arrived 20 minutes early on Easter Sunday and our party of two was seated quickly. We were advised the kitchen was a bit backed up. I would estimate that they were only a little over half full of patrons. We had to place our order two different times, because the kitchen refused to take new orders. My wife had to order a third time because they reportedly ran out of avocado toast, yet they continued to deliver that same entree to other tables ordering after we did. Several large tables of customers walked out after waiting an hour or more for their food. It took 1 hour and 45 minutes before we were actually served our meals. Service was very poor after we received our food. The only reason we stayed was to see how ridiculously long it would take to get our food.

We were pretty disappointed with this over all experience. We went for brunch/lunch on Easter in addition to a birthday celebration for my mom, excited to try out a new place. We had a reservation at 12:30 but weren’t sat at our table until at least 1:00, if not later, and subsequently waited until at least 2:00 before receiving our food. Being busy on a holiday is understandable, but there was a general disregard for the fact that an hour and a half from the time of the reservation before receiving any food is excessive, especially for brunch. Our server was not to blame and brought a complimentary appetizer “to hold us over”, but this was after sitting at our table for an hour, and our food arrived immediately after. What was somewhat baffling was that there was no offer from the manager (who passed us by numerous times during our half hour wait in the lobby before seating us, and countless times over the hour we waited at the table)to take so much as a drink off of our $200 check in exchange for our patience. I would like to add that this was seemingly the experience that all guests present at the time shared. We witnessed several tables asking to “speak to a manager”, and watched the table next to us have to walk up to the hostess stand to request their check because the manager forgot to bring it to them after they complained about the length of time they had waited, since they had somewhere else to be...

I would be willing to give this place a second chance, but only because of the atmosphere, awesome art display, indoor/outdoor seating, but certainly not because of the service we received the first time around. As a group of people coming from a service industry background, this was somewhat painful all around from a dining experience perspective. On a positive note, it gave us plenty of time to catch up with family.
