“The decor and atmosphere is cool and exciting, but the service just is aweful.”
“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.”
“On a Thursday night at 6:30, we got seated right away at a booth by the bar which was perfect.”
“The food was excellent!”
“The portions were reasonable, the prices about right for said portion sizes, and the variety of drinks and clever presentations of those drinks made this a place that we'll be coming back to fo sho.”
“I'm not enjoying the free buffet at the strip club - I'm at a nice restaurant in the Back Bay, all I'm asking is that you dress appropriately.”
“Overall, I love this place and will definitely go back again and again!”
“Our server was really friendly and attentive, and the restaurant has a trendy and cozy feel to it ( I love the fireplace).”
“the filet i had was great and a good price as well.”
“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.”
I love match. I went to Match last Sat. night and then again Tuesday night. I sat at the bar both times and thought it was awsome. I ate some apps, and had great drinks! Didn't have to wait long and didn't expect the bartender to spend a ton of time with me but she was friendly. I'll be there a lot
Too Cool. Modern interior. Cool design, especially the fireplace. The burgers were great (except for the grit). The waitresses are foced to where uniforms that make them look like Olivia Newton-John in Xanadu. They also where backless healed sandels - not exactly practical when carrying trays of martini's. We watched several of them tentatively deliver drinks, all the while with a smile on their face. Overall, execellant place to hang-out, but pricey for what you get.
A Good Match!. I was definitely impressed by this restaurant. I loved the atmosphere, very sheek and fun. The service was good, although at times we thought the server smiled a bit too much. The food was excellent! Appealing in appearance and excellent in taste. I loved the mini burgers. We ordered the marguerita pizza and mussels for appetizers, both were delicious. The fries and onion rings we had with our mini burgers were very good too. I highly recommend this place. Fun for big groups or a girls night out!
Tasty Snacks, Strange Service. Not sure how they assign tables to servers here, everyone seemed to be working the same table. So we got hit with a lot of repeat questions. The funny thing is, even with four servers helping us, once we got our food nobody had the sense to get us silver or napkins. Exception (Jen) was great. The burgers are tasty but at the same time a good scam, you need three of them to equal a real burger, so at $5 each, plus another $6 for fries or rings, it's a sneaky way to charge $20+ for a burger. Martinis are $10, small and warm. They are cashing in on the Martini craze, stick to beer. It's a trendy place, so enjoy it while it's there.
Fantastic new spot!. Went to Match last night with a group of friends, again for the fourth time in the past two months... and am addicted to the place! I love the concept of the mini-burgers! We all had a sort of burger sampler with a bunch of different sides and loved everything. Whomever came up with this idea is certainly ahead of the pack! The decor in there is spectacular and the ambience is particularly appealing for Boston. It can get a little crazy in the bar area on weekends, but from the vantage point of the lounge area where they let us after dinner to drink and just hang out, the place is by far the best lounge in Boston. Great music, great crowd (good looking people all over the place...) and most importanly, GREAT martinis!!
Perfect match. I have been to Match twice now. Have loved it both times. The first I went with a group of girls, and sat in the bar area for drinks and some food. The bar was so crowded our poor waitress could hardly wiggle her way through. My date and I waited (about 45 minutes...) for a table in the dining room last night, and we were glad we did. Service was fantastic, and our food even better. We shared a couple of appetizers followed by some burgers. I am hooked on the lamb and the tuna burgers!! Nothing like them anywhere I've ever been! We probably had one two many martinis, but they go down like water. I recommend the Pop rocks martini. It's an adventure for the mouth! Overall, I love this place and will definitely go back again and again!
Although the place is really, really cute (A for Ambience); the service was extremely slow and spotty.
I went on a Wednesday night and had a hard time getting a waitress to take our order, though once the order was place the food was ready quickly and pretty good. We were going to order dessert but couldn't get the waitress to come back and by the time she did we decided to get the bill. I wish the service wasn't so bad, because then i would have returned. I had a couple of the miniburgers (yum) and a martini (ok)
Classy and Stylish. I'm new to Boston and recently went to Match. I loved it!! The decor is beautiful and stylish. I thought it was a really classy place. It has New York feel to it. The crowd was pretty good. There's a mix of all ages. The food was very good and it's presentation was very professional. This is one of my favorite places in Boston. I've been there 3 times already and each time the experience was better than than last. Very highly recommend this place.
Best martini menu in boston. I took a date to Match last Saturday night. The service was great and the food excellent. The tuna burger was great and they had the best onion rings I've ever had in my life. Be careful though, my date and I didn't get entrees - we ordered burgers and sides all night (they were soooo good) and ended up spending like 60 just on food. The martini menu is great and very chick friendly, it's actually one of the only places a guy like me can look cool with a pretty pink martini. My only regret was that I brought a date because the place is FULL of women... Can't wait to go back with friends!
Stylish and Relaxed Back Bay Lounge. Match is stylish and laid-back, with a uniquely fire-lit dining room and upbeat lounge music. It's a perfect crossover place - for after work drinks, a romantic dinner, dinner for a big group of friends, or late night weekend partying. The crowd is great-looking and approachable, the hostesses and bartenders are knockouts, and the miniburgers are senstational. It's the only bar in the Back Bay I've found so far that combines such great music, ambiance, and food. So, it's both a perfect neighborhood hangout and destination restaurant.
