We have been regular patrons of Match Eatery in Courtenay ever since it opened but our visit on a October 20, 2021 was one of our best. Our server was very attentive, friendly and most efficient. We enjoyed our dinner very much. Thank you.

Dillon was our server and he really made our anniversary special. Lovely young man. His choice of dessert for us was 5 star! The young girl that led us to our table was very nice as well, wishing us happy anniversary when we arrived and left!

Our reservation was canceled due to the UFC fight, that was fine, three young servers at front were not friendly, took our # and said we had a half hour wait. Five minutes later our friend arrived and they cleared a table for them, forgot about us. The reason I’m writing this is our server was the worst we’ve ever had. Clerk #22 Saturday about 7pm, table across from the bar, red bow in her hair. She was rude, uninterested and didn’t refill our drinks as she quickly grabbed our empty glasses. No smiles and she was just annoyed with our presence and we were not difficult. Good was awesome and the only reason we would come back.

Excellent salt and pepper wings. Perfect hot wings. The Mexican wings were a bit odd. Different. Waitress pleasant. Hostess looked glum and brought us to a table that hadn’t been cleaned. (Quickly dealt with however). Definitely will go again.

Good food and well mixed cocktails. Ambience subdued by Covid, but seemed like it would typically be very lively. First Match location i have visited and now want to see if the local version has same feel and attention to detail with food and drink.

Ordered special Valentine's dinner and pointed dinner as shown on tv screen to server. As she did not think it was until Sunday & said she wd check if available. Yes, we could order. We wanted the desert as advertised & she said it was not included with dinner & would have to charge us. Spoiled a wonderful evening.
