MATCH Restaurant & Lounge located at Pan Pacific Hotel Singapore serve modern American cuisine with late night bar serving as well. The interior design gives a classy and contemporary chic feeling. The ambience of the restaurant gives a romantic feel for couples and also comfortable feel for group gathering events as well.
Our choice of starter was Ceviche Barramundi S$17.00. Simply refreshing and fresh.
As for the mains, diners get to customize to your preferences. There are options for sauces for the meat and two sides to go with it. We had 250g striploin drizzled with shallot and red wine sauce and sauted mushrooms and onion tart as the sides S$45.00. Did I mentioned that you can get your preferred way of cooking as well? We chose char grilled and medium done for the beef. The beef texture was tender and juicy for my liking. I am already missing it while drafting the post now.
Next, Pan Fried Atlantic Cod with Champagne Caviar Sauce with squid ink risotto and zucchini served as sides S$38.00. The cod fish was fresh, tender and soft. It's like melting into your mouth when you taste it.
We also ordered Mac & Cheese S$10.00 which i think it's just taste normal. It's cheesy and filling given the portion and value.
Complimentary candy cotton served. Definitely a sweet treat!
We ended the dinner with Ultimate Match Sundae Dessert S$21.00. It comes in a huge bowl with four big scoops of ice-cream choice of vanilla, chocolate, oreo and raspberry sorbet. Toppings include meringue, different types of fruits and biscuits. Combination of sweetness, crunchy bites when you have everything in one go. And of course the highlight of the dessert is the fireworks gimmick. Definitely gives a smile on the face!

Wierd and disappointing dining experience. Place completely empty. Only 2 tables including us across whole night. Music blasting too loudly. Menu is very different and scaled down compared to the reviews. No cocktails at all.
Worst of all service was awful. Waitress very intrusive and rude. she can't be bothered and replaced our warm water with cold water. The crab cake was spoilt. When I feedback to her, the reply was "it's meant to be sour, as we sprinkle lemon over it". Then when I asked her to try, her reply was "I don't eat meat sir" and then she walked away. No effort or follow up to change or replace dish.
it is clear restaurant had seen better days. Felt like they were going to close down soon.
At my recent visit to Match, I found myself dining with loud thumbing music. I must say that it was innovative, but it did not quite work for me.
I started out with some sauvignon blanc, which was a very good house pour I might add, but the positiveness of the dining experience ended there.
The starter of Prawn Cakes ($18) with crab did not quite go well. The breaded pastry was overfried and the insides were too dry.
For my main course, the Atlantic Cod ($36) was once again overcooked and dry and the herb peppery spices was to strong. The risotto cakes that came with it were also overdone.
Better was the Tenderloin ($42). Dry aged and done medium, it was a good piece of beef with a fairly hearty portion.
I also tried the Mac and Cheese ($10) on the side, which had no surprises.
Overall, more misses than hits from the food, and with the revolving house music giving me a headache, it is probably not a place I would return to.
Service was also patchy. Some had poor command of English, and some staff did not know about the UOB drink promotion, with the maitre d more interested in playing with her handphone outside than helping out.
terrible experience at Match. Food was not great - Cod was tough (texture tasted more like lobster), oysters were terribly tasteless, salty and not fresh. But more importantly, the female manager was one of the worst I have ever experienced in any F&B establishments. After providing feedback that the oysters were bad (we had left 2 out of 4 back), not only was she not empathetic and apologetic, she insisted that there was nothing wrong with it, and that it was perfectly good. At an establishment like Match, you will expect better quality food than say what you get in the cold station of an average buffet place. But more importantly, you will expect decent attitude from the manager. Ruined our night and left with such distaste.
Having said that, the waiters and waitresses were very good. Great service from the staff on the floor - ironically better than their manager, but don't count on this place for a Special occasion with food and service that cannot afford to disappoint. Will never go back, nor recommend.
