As soon as I stepped into Match 65 I was transported to Paris. The atmosphere is just like that of a brasserie you find near the Eiffel Tower. The food was delectable, the wine list amazing (and very French), and the staff was superb. I'm so happy restaurant week led me to this gem and I can't wait to go back!

The nicest nicest people. First my husband burned the menu, then he spilled his wine. Everyone was so understanding A new glass of wine was served immediately. This was followed by a most delicious dinner for both of us. The apple tartin was
Fabulous. A great restaurant!!

It is wonderful to return to France without having to travel there. The food is very good and very French, although they seemed to forgotten to add enough garlic with the snails. The choice of wine by the glass is outstanding. We will be back!

We went for Sunday brunch while visiting NYC. Food was great! Service was even better!! I had eggs benedict which was delicious. My friend really enjoyed her brioche french toast, too. I'd recommend this place to everyone.

Blonde hostess was indignant when a taste of a second wine was requested. Had a nasty attitude and felt she was doing us a favor by giving a second tasting stating we only “give one tasting “.

Looks just like a traditional brasserie in France--cozy tables, mirrors, French aperitif posters. And the menu reflects the same tradition. If you want brasserie food--and who wouldn't?--Match 65 is a terrific choice. The steak frites, the moules, the pasta, the salade Nicoise, the frites--oh, those frites, how do the French make them so very delicious every time?--everything is excellent. Highly recommended for when you long for a taste of Paris.

Sono andata con la mia famiglia a cena e avevo prenotato per le ore 21. Quando siamo arrivati non c’era posto e abbiamo aspettato mezz’ora finché sono riusciti a procurarci un tavolo molto piccolo da dividere in quattro ... anche se era per due.... non si riusciva neanche a trovare il posto per i giubbotti. Abbiamo mangiato bene e il cameriere è stato gentile; il cibo buono e i prezzi medio alti come è solitamente ai ristoranti di New York. La cosa che mi ha proprio infastidito è stato il pagamento del conto nel senso che stavo ancora bevendo il caffè e il capo cameriere mi ha presentato il conto e mi ha chiesto di pagare mentre mi stavo alzando dal tavolo per andare in bagno. Non ho capito questo modo scortese e tutta questa fretta dato che bon c’era gente che aspettava. In ogni caso non mi è piaciuta la cosa e non ci tornerò visto il trattamento scortese !!!!

My husband and a friend and I went there after the theater at 9:45. It isn’t a late-night place and there were only three or four tables left. I would have given Match 65 an outstanding rating if it hadn’t been for the lackluster service. We got off to a slow start, and the busboy kept taking away the glass I was given for bottled water, but eventually we were given(?) a server who was attentive, efficient and friendly. That said, we all thought the food was terrific. The country pâté was the best we’ve ever had; we also shared the escargots and the artichoke, all excellent. We moved on to steak frites, steak au poivre (not on the menu but made at my husband‘s request), and bouillabaisse, fabulous. The chef really knows what he’s doing! We drank a great Morgon, a good value at $54, with dinner. We will definitely go back.

The food was generally good, but the bouillaibaise (which was the dish of the day and quite expensive) was too salty and the fish was not palatable)

First visit. Great small restaurant just off Madison-midtown north.
Food was wonderful (the trout cooked to perfection-not a single bone) Service prompt and attentive...on a very busy night-Christmas day. Extensive wine list. We’ll be returning.

Went there for Christmas Day brunch. Love the atmosphere. Friendly staff and very prompt service. The Eggs Benedict were okay, not a whole lot of seasoning. The steak frites was cooked as ordered (rare) but the piece of meat was chewy and stringy. Not something I would expect for a $40 plate. Fries with both meals were good. Good tea and coffee. Blood Mary's are also okay but we have certainly had better cocktails at other restaurants for cheaper price.
