The level of detail is unmatched. The service they provide completes the experience of the year. I highly recommend you let them make the food decisions. Give them your parameters and the wait staff will take great care of you.

Met up with friends who are long time fans of this longstanding restaurant. Everything was delicious. I had a special 'scallop pizzette' and the salad with potato pancake. My husbands octopus frites was wonderful, as was his gnocchi. All I can say is that we...More

I visited Match for the first time with my family for a birthday celebration. We thoroughly enjoyed the scallops, swordfish, and steak. The swordfish was probably the best I’ve had anywhere. For dessert, the warm chocolate chip cookies are excellent. They made a very nice...More
