Very authentic looking small French bistro near Central Park. From the moment you step inside you feel like you are in a small neighborhood bistro on the Left Bank. It was very popular and lively the night we were here. Fun! Our waitress was charming and offered suggestions with a smile. I had the delicious calamari, fried without being greasy.... More

I enjoyed the Angus burger and the fries. The creme brûlée was excellent and the coffee great. The service was very good. I shall return.

A really top-notch French Brasserie, featuring all the well-known classics, and all done superbly. Don't miss the "plats du jour", especially Monday (rack of lamb) and Friday (bouillabaisse)! And. whether at home or in a hotel, check out the delivery option, which features the ability to pre-order and choose the exact time of arrival. Also great for a drink mid-afternoon... More

As the title says, the restaurant has a lovely French bistro feel. We had a nice lunch there and enjoyed it very much despite somewhat slow service (it was the weekend, and we were somewhat early). Delicious onion soup, roasted chicken. Not gourmet - just comforting and good.

My teen-aged daughter and I went here after a long flight. From the elegant and engaging hostess, to the warm decor of a typical French brasserie, we felt welcomed. As it is restaurant week in NYC (until Feb. 10), I had pate accompanied by cornichons, mustard and toasted baguette, trout with meuniere sauce and a dessert of creme brulee for... More

Cozy, but not too small, although I wouldn't recommend it for large groups. Tried to keep my lunch order small, so I got fried calamari appetizer and French onion soup. The calamari was enough for two, and I couldn't finish the soup, it was rich and filling, definitely authentic. Very extensive wine list for a small bistro, friendly service, definitely... More

Transporting Parisian decor with warm, caring service and excellent food - what a great combination! First time today; were so pleased we came. Food was wonderfully flavorful and artistically prepared. Loved the salmon tartare (a bit of French-Japanese fusion it seemed), pate, mussels. Looking forward to returning, soon.

This spot really feels like you've stepped into a bistro in Paris in the 1940's. The narrow space is beautifully lit and there's a warm ambiance which is immediately felt upon entering . Our host was very gracious the entire evening,. He was charming yet efficient and never stopped overseeing that we received top notch service. The food was very... More

We were looking for somewhere for 7 people to celebrate a very special occasion. Match 65 found the perfect table for us, had the champagne on ice as requested when we arrived, and served us the best bistro food (than which there is little better) I have had in NY. They accommodated all our requests for friends who had to... More

Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
