Went here for our anniversary dinner. Best food, atmosphere and waiter here. My husband had the asso bucco gnocchi and I had the butternut squash ravioli. Both were delicious! We were able to order a smaller portion so we could have room for desert. We had the chocolate chip cookie special. It was 4 cookies stacked, a scoop of chocolate... More

We've probably been here 20 times over the 17 years that the menu says they've been open & always had a great experience! They have unique combination, such as my wife's favorite PB&J halibut & the burrata with truffles, and their combinations miraculously work ... everytime! I had never before tonight had the osso bucco, now I'll be hard pressed... More

Lively. Upbeat. Popular. Decent menu, well delivered. Perhaps not the best place for quiet conversation or relaxation. Good service.

I have been going to Match for 16 years. The food is consistent. The chef keeps reinventing himself. Looking forward to dining here for many more to come. My main go to is the seared ahi... Always amazing.

We went to Match on Saturday night and we all agreed. After many years, the food is still great, the service was top notch. And, the service was sublime. It's rare for a restaurant to still be creating interesting small and large plates that seem fresh and inviting. The mix and match menu was just the right combination for everyone's... More

What a treat this restaurant was! The feel was intimate, urban but comfortably casual. The front of the building opens up for tables on the sidewalk when the weather is nice (and it was). The food, however, is definitely not casual. Every dish was a culinary treat in taste, presentation and creativity. There was so much of interest on the... More

We recently went to Match in South Norwalk for my birthday dinner. The service was excellent, drinks were great, and the dinner was outstanding. Will definitely be going back.

What an incredible dining experience. Even the mistake they made was a treat. Their bowl of summer was an amazing delight of vegetables and mozzarella. After that it was the bacon and mozzarella which blew me away. Spicy and sweet with the creaminess and richness. The tastes were so balanced. Grilled octopus was the best I've had, hands down. And...

We're not local but stopped here on a weekend getaway. Walk in the door and you'll just love the aroma of the wood fired oven in the back. The dishes are innovative and delicious. Try the carpetbaggers and the tuna tartar, you won't go wrong. I shared the porterhouse for 2. It was cooked perfectly. I really enjoyed this place.... More
