The ambience here is like stepping into a quintessential Parisian brasserie. Everything from the lighting to the wall accents to the flooring is down to a tee. As a hardcore Francophile, this is definitely my kind of spot. I’d say my omelette was very good,...but nothing life-changing. That being said, I’d definitely go back for the lovely atmosphere.More

First dinner here on a long weekend in NYC. We had eaten here several years before and were looking forward to returning. Once again we really enjoyed our experience. It’s not a large restaurant so the tables are very close and it gets very noisy...but the service and food are excellent! We started with several appetizers including the French Onion soup, steak tartare, tuna tartare and a salad. The steak tartare was fabulous! For entrees our group had the salmon, the pork chop, the poulet roti, and the branzino. All were good choices. We shared the crepes suzettte for dessert and were very pleased with our choice. Will definitely return again.More

Since we are in in NYC, we are celebrating every single achievement at Match 65. This place is the best place for lunch and diner. The menu is sensational and Flavia, the owner, is welcoming you every single time with such a warm "so nice...to see you again". The staff is so attentive and conscientious, that you feel so privileged.More

On Wednesday the 25th of May 2022, I hosted a dinner for 12 people here. Everyone who attended raved about the food. We had a set menu from which my guests could have the choice of 4 starters, 5 main courses and 4 desserts. The...variety was much appreciated by everyone. Everyone commented on how good the food was. Most of my guests were from NYC but none had been to Match 65 before. They all stated they would come back. The wine list was excellent and well balanced. Without a doubt I will be returning the next time I am in NYC. Working wiht the staff to arrange the event was great. they were responsive and attentive while we were there. Definitely worth checking out!More

We found this beautiful brasserie on our way back from a walk in Central Park and we stopped for a late lunch (FYI they don't close between lunch and dinner like most restaurants in the city do!). We were expecting the typical upper east side...attitude given the location but, au contraire, everybody was very friendly and professional. Tuna Tartare and trout are amazing.More

We had a great meal at Match 65 -- great appetizers, excellent bronzino and Salad Nicoise, and a wonderful bottle of Gigondas. The waiter and chef managed our requests for adjustments on the dishes without a hitch, and it was all delicious. (It was a...little pricey, but we expected that.) The only thing I might change -- and I would -- is that the tables are super crowded close together. Granted, that felt very "French bistro," so maybe it goes with the territory. But it did mean I had to work hard to focus on my conversation and tune out the conversations that were going on two feet away on either side. But we managed, and we had a great time.More

This was a terrific find, recommended by concierge at The Pierre. My daughter and I had a short trip to NYC and this was a memorable part of it. Fabulous, warm and friendly service - the gorgeous hostess, Faye, from Paris, was incredibly welcoming and...came back to check on us a couple of times during our dinner. The food was delicious! The onion soup is a must, the steak frites very very good. Luke the manager was charming and attentive and helpful with the wine list. We would certainly go back again - a beautiful little piece of Paris in the heart of Manhattan.More

Great place in excellent location in midtown. Excellent menu, food and service. Ambiance is totally Parisienne. A bit off the beaten path, but even makes it better. Worth the effort. Small, so reservation is highly recommended, especially on weekends. Sense this is a favorite with...the local East Side crowd - for good reason.More

I had the trout which was delicious and memorably prepared. I ordered a glass of Bordeaux blanc to accompany this meal, but it was totally uninspiring and insipid. It tasted as if it had been watered down (diluted)! The waiter offered to replace it for...me with another wine, so I ordered a Chardonnay which was only slightly better. I am not a wine connoisseur but I know what good wine tastes like and for $17 a glass I was not expecting bad (cheap?) wine!More
