Always Good

This is a great go-to restaurant. It is always busy and has a nice mix of couples and groups that keeps the atmosphere fun. The menu is current and the food quality and diversity is great. If you're in the area definitely choose this restaurant!

We were so excited to finally try Match after raving reviews. We went for our anniversary. The food did not disappoint, everything was delicious. However, the service was average ... maybe even slightly below. Multiple servers were helping our table and none seemed to be interested in us (it was a Sunday evening, the restaurant was barely half full). Our... More

Big family events are frequently celebrated at our favorite "really nice" restaurant - Match! Great wine list, unusual and delicious entrees, warm interior and staff always makes things easy and fun.

Conveniently located, but this food is FAR from fine dining. It seems like every time I go here I have to send something back. Would not recommend, especially for the price.

Pro-I loved sitting towards the entrance where the wall size windows are open to the street. Decor is like a NYC loft. The fois gras app was delicious & hubby loved the ribeye. Con-chairs tipped backwards & uncomfortable, bacon/potato/egg pizette was bland. Waiter was annoying. Someone's truffle scented pasta smelled amazing-will get that next time!

I've been here a few times and truly hasn't disappointed me. The food is prepared beautifully and extremely tasty. The service was exceptional and the decor is spot on. You receive a young hip vibe from this location and delivers on all cylinders. A must when visiting Norwalk for a quality meal at an acceptable price.

Stopped for a business lunch and the food was excellent as usual. Always a nice twist on traditional dishes. Remains one of my favorite spots in Norwalk and beyond.

Like the decor, gives a nice airy feel. Service good and friendly. Had excellent pizza, which was good value for the size and had a delicious crust and loads of toppings. One of the better pizzas I've had in CT!

This is one of those places that, when you pass by on the street, you look in and think about how nice it seems inside ,,,, and it is. The decor / atmosphere is rich and special yet comfortable. We order vegetarian -- often off-menu -- and they always come up with something great (without overcharging for it). The put... More
