Well it was Valentine’s Day so ya it was busy... did not know how long it was going to take to get our food though. Three of us there and it took over an hour to get our food and when it came my steak was definitely well done instead of medium and was like warm... I didn’t send it back as I didn’t want to wait that long again and to be honest I was really frickin hungry LOL... I’ll go back but it was not the best experience
Hi Derek, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and thank you for your patience on Valentine's Day! We were extremely busy, but this is too long to wait for food. In the future, please bring these issues to a manager's attention so we can try to find a solution for you. We hope to see you back again soon, and please accept our apologies for the over cooked steak, and long wait that you experienced.
Although busy, we were seated and served in a timely manner. The Foods was great and enjoy our experience.
Thank you for your review of Match. We hope to see you again soon.
Made reservations for a birthday dinner for 10 adults. Was contacted later and said our reservations were cancelled because a UFC fight was on TV and the restaurant would be busy!? As the service is questionable at the best of times, we felt between that and being unable to make a reservation we would just go elsewhere. We did return later to see the excellent live band and had great service from one gentleman (outside on the patio) then NO service from the gal inside (didn't come by once in an hour or more).
The food and service was very good. It was a quiet early afternoon meal. Nice presentation and a reasonable price.
We will go again.
Thank you for your positive review & rating. We are glad that you enjoyed the food & service and we hope to see you again soon!
In from out of town, showed up for our reservation to find the restaurant closed because of a strike. So why could we still make a reservation???🤔
Very good and good service I’ll be back
Some dishes were unacceptable and had to be sent back. Beer was barely cool, not cold. Everything took far too long given we were one of the only tables and we were there a lot longer than we should have been. Frustrating experience overall.
salmon was too much sauce on top but blackened chicken ok,Portions were smaller than on menu but it was free as new members so guess that is why.
Possibly one of my top 5 worst meals I’ve ever had. Service was poor as well. I don’t want to go into too much detail because it would sound like a rant. Bottom, very poor food.
The overall experience was not bad but it wasn’t great either. The prices for their pasta specials was not bad ($10 per pasta), but the actual quality of the food wasn’t great. The servers were super nice and helpful, and definitely did their job. It’s just the quality wasn’t there. Nothing was terrible but it just didn’t really satisfy our expectations based on the reviews.
Great dining experience
Very good dining experience
Very good experience at match
Very good to meet up with family and friends
Very good dining experience
Great food only complaint is it can gr8 very loud and hard to gave a conversation.
Was not impressed. Portions were small for the cost. The smell of butane when the bartender heats up bacon for a ceasar is overpowering. Service was slow and it wasn't very busy.
Great that we could make a reservation. The food was just ok? Benny needed a bit more sauce and the English muffin needed to be buttered with sauce or butter. Waffles were very chewy, Luke warm, didn't come with butter and the "fruit topping" was about 6 raspberries. Just ok.
Very disappointed with match eatery on Saturday march 18th. It was my mothers 55th birthday and for the last hour of our meal we were forgotton. The waitress went home and no one looked after us. We were then treated horribly and they threw away my food that I wanted packed up to take home. Will not be going back
Food is always good, Service is Always Good too! The girls & guys work hard there & do their best too!
Was not at the level expected, in town for the week from Van and with the online ratings thought there would be something high end .
Overall, the whole evening was a pleasant surprise! Would definitely go if we were in Vernon again.
Really great food and had an amazing server who went above and beyond for our kids!
Wing nite is always a great time. We especially like to reserve a booth online. The staff and service are superb!
Great dining experience! Great food & service. Waitress was very friendly & efficient. Also liked being able to make my reservation on line.
Great service and amazing food! Also, DEEP FRIED OREOS!!
We will be coming back to do brunch again soon!!!
I went to Match when it first opened and to be honest never went back until recently with a work dinner. I was very impressed with the improvements. I am excited to come back!
Slow service, but it might just have been a one time thing. Good food so I will likely return.
Very load. Could hardly hear the band. Waitress was slow but friendly. Price too high for the quality of the food.
We had a reservation( one of few in advance it appeared). We were placed in a poorer location near a cash register. Breaking into coin rolls behind me was a bit disturbing.
Two meals were great. My steak was a bit lukewarm so it must have been lingering on the counter while the other two meals were finalized. It was done right but a bit low on the temperature side. Medium rare cool was not what I ordered.
The others were impressed and more than satisfied and I was "OK".
The food was excellent - there was no complaints on that in our group of 8. The drinks were not quite right, the bartender is maybe inexperienced? If you are paying $9.00 for a drink - it should be good. That was our only complaint of the night, was the martini's were just not right. The server was good - but in a large group we should have been asked if we were celebrating anything - because we were. It didn't take away from the service though - but it would have made it a more personal experience
While we extremely enjoyed our brunch, and the staff, we are really sorry the menu for lunch/dinner has changed so much. There were many things from the old restaurant which we went there for particularly. There were hardly any other people there when we had our brunch so noise level was non-existent. So, would recommend for brunch but not for the other meals.
The piano music was fantastic. The best part of the evening. Having multiple TV's with sports was great too. When it came to the drink selection it was less than great for us. The food was overcooked without flavour. The chicken was the smallest piece with beets and beans and potatoes. Again not our taste. There was supposed to be a berry sauce which was not reflected in the taste at all.
What started out as, "Let's try Match" before a movie, turned into a new pallet favourite. We ordered the Shanghai chicken bites, dry ribs and side salad which were very good and hit the spot as $5 appetizers. What stole the show was our leap of faith on the deep fried Oreos. North America's favourite cookie smothered in a mini donut batter, deep fried to perfection, sprinkled with powdered sugar and displayed with chocolate sauce and raspberries. One bite was all it took to fall in love. We are returning to try the chicken and waffles and fish and chips as they looked amazing coming out of the kitchen.
Our reservation for 20 started off with only room for 12. We had to wait with people standing around until other tables opened up. Service was very poor. People waited for their drinks for up to an hour! Really unacceptable. Food came out very slowly with the first served finishing their dinner before the others even got theirs. One person did not get hers at all, and unfortunately she did get a bottle of wine. No dinner and a bottle of wine made for a belligerent confrontation with the waitress. The waitress tried to make it up to them, but really it was too little, too late. The 15% tip was already added to our bills, otherwise I would not have left anything. Will not be going back!
