“Match is a essentially really trendy, fun, upscale burger joint.”
“Our favorites are the fried calamari with plum sauce, the filet mignon and the salmon entrees, and, of course, the pan seared chocolate chip cookie dough:) The drinks are a bit pricey for our taste but we are on Newbury Street.”
“overall the service was good and the food and drinks were even better.”
“Glass in my food and the worst service ever - HORRIBLE!”
“loved the menu at the old blue cat and was a little worried match wouldnt hold up to its dining standards.”
“I've been lving in the Back Bay area for a couple of years and this area has been missing a nice, laid back trendy place like Match.”
“Overall, I love this place and will definitely go back again and again!”
“Rather it s loud or rather service is horrible.”
“Match has the best food deals in Boston.”
“The service was awful, it took 10 minutes to find our waitress and ask for a refill for our diet cokes which took another 10 minutes to come.”
Great food !!!.
My husband and I have eaten at Match a few times in the past year; last time right before a Sox game. We've been impressed each time. The food is delicious and poses a great and reasonable alternative to some of the pricier restaurants in Boston. Our favorites are the fried calamari with plum sauce, the filet mignon and the salmon entrees, and, of course, the pan seared chocolate chip cookie dough:) The drinks are a bit pricey for our taste but we are on Newbury Street. Our server was really friendly and attentive, and the restaurant has a trendy and cozy feel to it ( I love the fireplace). We hope to be back soon:)
bben there so many times and unpleases agin. Well i had a alright experience there for my third time and it has been upsetting for me. I dont know how to explain this but theres acouple of girls there that i was not pleased with. It is a problem when you have servers running there fingers throught there hair and at the same time serving food. Thats a number one rule for me. They should at leatst tie it up. Its destroys the whole experience when you find hair in your food like i did tonight. just to point out some tips managers shouldnt be smoking in front of the restaurants at any time. People really look at all this. Tonight when my wife and Iwas there i was offended because i heard servers talking about how bad these people are tipping us ( referred to guest as a__ holes) Wow! Just because they are looking like sluts doesnt mean they can have my dollar. A good point the food was so delicious and i would think about coming back. Its time for new management because i feel that the guy thats there now is horrible i didnt see him on the floor all night and that tall skinny young lady where is she . I was glad she wasnt there to stare me down and undigest my food because it was so great. i have so much i wanna say but again it needs to satrt with management. This restaurant needs a firm strict manager like a chef who isnt afraid to discipline there staff because as I see its not being done .
Yummie Food, Cute And Cozy.
I went to Match on Sunday with a friend of mine and had a really nice meal.
The atmosphere is really great, with dim lighting and lounge music.
We had the mushroom pizza which was fabulous and they have a great Martini list as well.
The service was friendly and fast. Definitely a place I will return to in the future.
I really loved it!!. I really had a great time at Match. I went a long time ago when they first opened then kind of forgot they were there. I went with a bunch of friends on Saturday and, while we did have to wait a long time (45 minutes) for a table, once we sat we had a blast. The food was wonderful (the filet is the best I've ever had!!) my friends loved their burgers and the martinis left us feeling very very happy... Our server was fantastic too! She was very pretty, but still personable, expedient and professional. No complaints!! I love Match and am making it a point to go more often. It is defintely one of my favorite spots for drinks and a bite.
Upon arriving there we were told there was a 45 min wait. We ended up waiting 2 hours!! When they finally sat us they put 5 of us at a 4 person table (2 people had to share a side) by the door. Once seated another customer put his empty drink on our table on his way out. 25 mins later a waitress finally came to the table to take our drink order. From there everything just kept going wrong.
The food was ok, but honestly really not that good. The lobster meat in the lobster burger tasted fishy and not so fresh, the hamburger was just ok.
Overall a very good concept, but they can't seam to pull it together. They may want to think about highering more experienced waitstaff and a mgr that is going to pay attention to the horrible service.
pretentious. I keep giving this place one more try, thinking that I was too quick to judge or maybe the last couple of times I went were just bad nights. But, I've finally given up. I really do not enjoy myself at this bar. The setting is great, but the people are pretentious, and it is nearly impossible to get the bartender's attention to order a drink. I will not be returning.
Great for drinks and a mini-meal. Great bar area and fantastic drink menu. Food menu is somewhat limited, especially in the appetizer area. But the food was very good. Just keep in mind that the burgers are mini and the price reflects the price for one burger.
Super trendy with good food.. I love the atmosphere here. Definitely fits in an episode of Sexin the City, ultra trendy, great food, with a Manhattan feel. The menu is unique and the portions are just right. The bar area is packed with singles, but it's a little loud for any real conversation, so it's maybe not the est 1st date spot. Impressive, fun, worth a try. Boasts a hot staff in Hugo Boss designer outfits. The only restaurant that I've seen waitresses in short, slinky, dresses.
A little bit of NYC in Boston. Match is a fun bar with a fantastic restaurant. The food is always good. I have one complaint. For such an upscale restaurant, why did the waiter remove my dirty knife from my appetizer plate and place it back down on the table so I could use it again for the main?? I mean, come on! Surely a place trying so hard to be hip can spare a clean knife with the main course!
A creative approach to nightlife in the Back Bay, fueled by designer martinis and offbeat burgers..
Located in the former home of the Blue Cat Cafe, Match sports a stylish atmosphere similar to those of sister establishments Jillian's and Lucky Strike Lanes. Lounge seating, dim lighting and a hipster soundtrack go hand-in-hand with designer cocktails like the "Pop Culture" martini (served in a glass rimmed with Pop Rocks candy).
