It has been my favorite restaurant for years. Good, innovated food. Fun atmosphere and always enjoy seeing Susan and Matt. It's a bit pricey but always worth it!

Located in trendy Sono, Match is fairly new. Very good experience., in a trendy, upscale, bistro-like atmosphere. Bar is a little awkwardly placed, and not much room nor the right setting to just go in for a drink, or wait for your table. Large, open room, tends to get very loud. Good, fun, trendy foods, decent service, and overall solid... More

Love to go to Match, especially for lunch. The food is consistently excellent and the choices are innovative. Chef/Owner Matt Storch has done such a great job with this restaurant - no wonder he and Match have been around for a while. Love the look of the restaurant now it has been updated.

Match a place we love and hate. Great food, fun atmosphere, lively. But this can really degenerate quickly into a free for all on weekend nights.

Probably one of the best restaurants in Norwalk. Great Salt & Pepper Calamari. Very inventive menu with excellent ingredients. Chef Matt Storch also owns The Chelsea in Fairfield which is a great place for lunch.

I Love the Lunch but bring your wallet with extra money since you will be paying around $ 15-20. Very modern look now which is great

My wife and I were in Norwalk for a weekend getaway and was looking for a place to eat dinner our first night. We read the review for Match and thought to try it. Our food was great, nicely prepared, and delicious. However, the service needs improvement. We consistently felt rushed throughout our meal. We like to enjoy our meal... More

When I lived in Norwalk I used to go to this restaurant for special occasions or to cheer me up because I knew the food would always make me happy. This restaurant could fit into NYC and it would be booked up weeks in advance, but you get it right in Norwalk. I appreciate interesting ingredients and parings of unusual... More
