It was a great experience as always, the food was wonderful and the service was good. The carpetbaggers are one of my favorite things I have eaten. Every time we go it is a must have! Pizza is always a good choice there! The fish, scallops, and pasta were cooked perfectly. Just was a bit salty on the Gnocchi Corn special. 1/2 Wine on Sunday and Monday night is fabulous!

Never disappoints. Food was creative and unique. A bit loud on Saturday nights but it is very popular. Server was hardworking, although not as experienced as some. Did a nice job.

Match has a creative menu that tastes great . It is inventive without being eclectic. The flavor combinations work exceptionally well. The service was very attentive without being overbearing. The Tuna appetizer is outstanding. I had grouper that was perfectly cooked. Even the simplest side dishes such as peas and carrots were prepared using fresh peas and perfectly cooked and expertly seasoned, Desserts are fantastic as well. Everything we had was top quality and expertly prepared. Prices are reasonable for the quality and portion size. We will definitely return.

The menu had a nice mix of fresh, local dishes from the farm and the sea. All were crafted with a unique and flavorful presentation. There was a nice accompanyment of wine, beer and specialty cocktails. The dessert list was short but amaxing! The staff was professional and exteamely accomodating.

They don't always have brunch, but when they do, it is fabulous. We were in on Mother's Day, and had an almost 3 hour, 3-course meal. At no point did we feel rushed, and everything brought out was fresh and fabulously prepared. We were even given a delicious donut as a take-away "gift".

Went here for Mother's Day brunch with our 6 and 8 yr old kids. Food was delicious. The kids had the chocolate chip waffle and breakfast burrito (half each). I don't think they always have brunch however. Its worth checking in advance.

As someone who knows food and restaurants and lives in New York City, I lower my expectations sometimes when I travel out of town. My meal at Match was by far one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had in a long time. The meal was outstanding; the service great. The appetizers were awesome; had the bacon and mozzarella and the calamari. They were surprisingly spicy in a good way and were great. The pear salad was phenomenal. I had the swordfish, my date had the pork. Great great and great. Dessert was the gooey cookies and the apple cobbler. Both made fresh and the tastes were great. I am telling you there was no one negative in the whole experience.

Well 1st time saying I did not like an OpenTable restaurant. They tried very hard but the service was extremely slow. I was looking forward to the Osso Buco but it was not good at all. Sauce was too thick and sweet and meat was dry. It just didn't match up to what I expected

As always the food is amazing and the service top notch. We usually sit in the front, by the window. We got "stuck" in the back this time and it's a different experience. Make sure you ask for the front when booking.

I've been raving about Match since we left. It was a great night and the food and portion sizes (just enough) were superb! Our waiter was great, suggested a few things for us to have and had a great personality!
Can't wait to go back.

Food was delicious. Portions huge can definitely split appetizer and even main course especially if you order sides. Dessert was delicious. We were celebrating a birthday and they automatically brought dessert with a candle. Will definitely go back.

Food was a bit off tonight - everything is usually great but overall experience was a bit underwhelming on most recent visit. The peanut butter and jelly halibut dish is unfortunately, no longer on the menu - it was always a well prepared dish. The hot chocolate souffle cake was very good.

Great food and service at reasonable prices. Excellent choice for dinner after a film, or meeting friends.
We enjoyed arugula salad with parmesan and cream, butternut squash soup and steak frites. Monday night half price wine was a special surprise! Will return.

Great food. Great wine. Really nice restaurant. Prices are fair. The service is great though the water guy seems to be paid by the ounce. I dont think my glass got down to the half-way point. Gotta love his dedication but my wife and I would prefer a little less appearances by the water guy. Try the oxtail and short rib ragu!
