Loved everything about it. Have tried to make weekend reservations at the last minute several times. Finally we planned ahead and went with friends. Well work the wait. Make a reservation for weekends dining. We will definitely be returning.

Have been here before and missed the filet mignon not being available on this visit. Had the steak frites including 14 OZ steak for @$35. Would have preferred a smaller cut with a corresponding reduction in price as it was too large to finish. (Did bring it home however). Sharing a pizza as an appetizer was a very good choice.

Match Sono is magnificent. Chef Matt Storch is one of the most inventive chefs around, and he never ceases to amaze. He elevates Brussels sprouts to an art form as an appetizer. Stunningly delicious, they are tiny, roasted, and beyond delicious. The arugula salad is sublime and makes a great starter. A signature dish is the osso bucco. It’s a stunner, in a “braising love” sauce that’s rich and satisfying. Served on risotto, the meat is tender, moist, and melts in your mouth. That said, leave room because you’ll relish the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, which are served with peanut butter ice cream, carmelized banana, toasted pistachios, chocolate curls, and a dollop of whipped cream. It’s sharable, but you won’t want to! And don’t skip the espresso. Smooth and served right with a lemon peel on the side. This place is a “Match” made in Heaven.

I always have an absolutely fantastic meal at Match. It’s my favourite special date night spot. The food is definitely worth the money. The wasabi tuna dish is the best tuna dish I’ve ever had. Good ambiance. Nice for romantic date.

We were sat down for dinner and the place seemed nice enough. It was late so we weren’t expecting much, but they sat us down anyways. Tried to order a burger but they “didn’t have the bun”. Tried to order a salad but they “didn’t have chicken”. Tried to order Pizza But they “didn’t have toppings”. It just seemed like they didn’t want us to eat there, and every item we tried to order they told us “we don’t have anymore”. I understand it was late, but if they didn’t have food why waste a half hour of our time having us sit down to tell us there was no food left? On top of all that, the server was extremely rude. I get that it was a late reservation, but that doesn’t mean that your guests deserve to be disrespected. Had high hopes for this restaurant, but we left without ordering anything at all. Every employee was rude and the cooks made it a point to scoff at us for coming in so late. Match shouldn’t have open reservations if they don’t have food past a certain time. It was not a fun experience. I wouldn’t recommend Match to my friends and I most certainly will not be returning.

WE had never been there and selected it on the basis of proximity to the Norwalk concert hall. Imagine our surprise when everything exceeded our expectations! We recommended it to people who were outside and they went in. We’ll be back.

Food was good, service wasn’t very good. Waiter was pretty much like here you go. Only thing I recall him saying all night was to put all the orders including apps at once since kitchen is busy.

If you are going for a meal it was a good meal, but it’s nice when you actually get service such as hello, here’s what I recommend, etc.
Then because there was 6 of us the tip is automatically included. I hate that I think it was 18%, my waiter was not good.

My fiancé dined at match on the 10th anniversary, to the day, of our first meeting which was a blind date at Match. Not much has changed at Match, in a good way, and the waiter caught on the our special occasion and had a nice mix of letting us alone and being attentive and celebratory with us.

My fiance and I went here for a dinner date and loved it! Nice atmosphere, great waitress, and awesome food! We ordered several small plates to share, but ending up ordering too much food. Although these small plates are much larger than traditional tapas, they were absolutely delicious! Will definitely be returning! :)
