Seasonal menu, plenty of choices but not overwhelmingly so. Served at our pace. At the proper temperatures. Looking forward to returning.

Very good first time visit for four of us.
Food and service excellent but cocktails were too expensive..in fact drinks are altogether a bit hefty price wise.

Went here for my girlfriend's birthday because she loves this place. We got the Wasabi Tuna, ravioli, pear salad, and calamari to share. They were all delicious.

Service was great too. The waiter knew to split the meals into convenient courses and split our salad on to two plates. Very friendly.

This time we went on a Monday night and made a reservation, but easily could have walked in for dinner. Weekends reservations are a must.

Can't say too much about drinks because I don't usually get drinks out. The ginger beer and root beer are good though.

Everything was great! We were seated in the circular, purple velvet, high-backed, dining settee. Very festive!
The drinks and food were so impressive. I had the hazel nut crusted pollack, sitting atop a bed of soft polenta, surrounded by a gorgeous pink citrus sauce. So pretty and good! My husband had the Osso Bucco, which was tender and flavorful, served with perfect creamy, dreamy Parmesan risotto! My daughter had the Pho Vietnamese chicken soup and said it was better than any she’d had in Manhattan, and elsewhere! My other daughter had the, blackened, 5-spice rubbed swordfish, which was really flavorful and delicate, not the usual thick slab that swordfish usually is.
It was all so good. The service was amiable, pleasant, and attentive. We didn’t do dessert because dinner had totally satiated us!
We will be back.

Phenomenal staff made the dining experience just that much better. Portions aren't particularly huge, but are fair for their quality vs price point. Cocktail menu is fun albeit limited. One of our favorite date night spots

still the best restaurant in the area, fun and lively place to go for drinks or dinner; loved the Carpetbagger oysters for appetizer and the truffle pasta, steak is one of the best even considering local steak houses; save room for the warm chocolate chip cookies; service is always friendly and top notch, and it is great to always see Chef Storch in the house.

Place is very modern and upbeat. Menu limited but good dishes among the fashionable. My biggest complaint was food was over salted. My angry lobster, my wife's chicken, her calamari all VERY salty.

Excellent food and service. Match is one of the best restaurants in Norwalk! Chef Matt Storch is consistently delivering superb plates. My favorites are the osso bucco, wood oven pizzettes and the chocolate soufflé.

Food was very good. Wish they served the steak on a hot plate since by the time it hits the table it’s always a little cold but still amazing quality.

The menu at Match is eclectic. It covers those who want a huge meal, and those who simply want a “small plate.” The owner/chef is devoted to interesting takes on familiar dishes, and he knows how to satisfy his customers with careful attention. My last visit, on a Saturday night, was noisy, as we expected, and exciting. A room full of happy people. (I study menu completely, see much that I want, and always end up ordering the pasta. It is never other than terrific.)
