With thousands of success stories over the years, Its Just Lunch is the number one personalized matchmaking service in the world. Are you ready to take your first steps and start dating in New York City?
It all starts with a phone conversation where we get to know you and what you’re looking for in a potential partner. From there, our professional matchmakers hand-select and coordinate your date. We’ll plan all the details of the date for you, so you can sit back and enjoy yourself. After your date, we ask for feedback so we can further refine your matches. If it worked out —even better!

“It was super easy because It’s Just Lunch arranged the dates. All I had to do was get ready and meet at the restaurant. And unlike online dating, I felt that my dates were interested in meeting quality people, not one-night stands. Your matchmaker calls you up with a match and then gives you the details of the date. All you have to do is show up and have fun!”
