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

Our original restaurant was closed, so we walked around the corner and found Match. We sat outside since the weather was great and ate an above average dinner in a somewhat noisy street scene. We all had either small plates or a single serve pizza. My only complaint was that I ordered three plates and they all came at once,... More

This is not my idea of "that special night out" kind of place, BUT for all the other nights of the year this is an excellent choice. Service is friendly, quick and relaxed. Food quality was excellent. Prices are the high side for locale. This is an easy choice for a night out with my special someone.

loved those legendary carpetbaggers. fried oysters with steak tartar and truffle cream. Steak was great as was pork shank and the wine. The dessert, freshly made choc chip cookies, served hot, with peanut butter gelato and caramelized banana was the bomb. We went early so noise level was low and service wonderful/

Match has been a staple in SONO for YEARS!!!!!!!! Incredibly consistent food, drink and service.........if anything it's only improved at the years have gone on. Large menu with plenty to choose from, wide range of drink options, great atmosphere and outdoor dining if weather permits. Staff is friendly, bar scene is cool and overall vibe is upscale. SONO wouldn't be... More

I am not only fussy but have food allergies. The chef took the time to talk to me about what they could prepare for me and it was delicious. Fantastic place with great food, accomodating staff and good drinks. Looking forward to returning soon!

Very dissapointed. Def does not live up to reviews. The ceasar table salad is a tiny salad globbed with too much dressing.. It comes out in a hugemongous wooden bowl.. It looks like lily tomlin in that big chair...dont understand that at all.. I had the lobster and shrimp scarpiello for $36. Both the shrimp and lobster were not fresh...... More
