Diner Reviews
  • "This Resturant is outstanding! The service and food are outstanding! My family and I will continue to frequent this Resturant."

  • "We've been back to Matchbox several times and haven't been disappointed. The food is very good and the staff treats visitors very professionally and nicely. It's also just a fun place--you forget you are in the 'burbs at Matchbox."

  • "I was so disappointed and would not go to back to this restaurant. The food was good and the atmosphere was also good. The service was awful. When we arrived the hostess was on the phone and did not even acknowledge us. She continued her call and look away. Shortly after, another hostess appeared and seated us. Our server, Ashley, was very slow and did not check on us often. We had to ask for salt and pepper after a long wait. I would never go back to this location. They have another location on 7th street in DC...the service is better there so if I ever go back to Matchbox, it would be that location and not Rockville."

  • "We travel to Rockville several times a year and always have dinner at the Matchbox at least once. Food is consistently good and this time we were delighted to see that the giant meatball was promoted from "a once in awhile special" to the everyday menu. Our choice is to sit at the outside patio when possible where the noise level is lower in addition to a pleasant setting. Service is always good."

  • "had a great brunch with 2 girlfriends as a farewell to one who was returning to Senegal but wanted to have pizza before she left. choosing what to have was difficult--go with what I always have or something new. I went with the steak/egg skillet, which was huge enough to have leftovers for my husband! huge, great outside patio--lovely that there was sufficient seating between tables."

  • "We are huge fans of Matchbox. But this trip was not a good one because of our server. He was condescending, impatient, and in attentive. We were so thrown off by this, as we frequent Matchbox regularly. It really ruined our meal. Luckily, because we have had positive experiences before, we will probably be back despite this experience."

  • "Sitting outside one would have expected that there would be the din of Rockville Pike which is not even a stones throw away. There was none of it, you don't really notice that one of the busiest arteries in Montgomery County is right next to you. The ample booths allow for comfortable dining. The outside bar is a gem, well stocked and provided the drinks to perfection. The pizza's were delicious. The fig with prosciutto combo was excellent."

  • "This is my second time to Matchbox and love it. I took my niece there and she really love it, said its her favorite place. Y sister love it too. The dessert trio is very good....the brownie is Mmm Mmm good. The dessert is very big. We are glad we only ordered one because we had a hard time finishing it among the 3 of us. The pizza is excellent and we like it that we can have 1/2 and 1/2 topping since we shared a pizza and this option allowed us to have two version in one. Definitely will go back soon. The service was very good."

The food - salads, pizzas, burgers, and sandwiches - was well-received. We all shared an order of the awesome donuts, which were a great way to end our lunch."

  • "We had dinner with a group of six (plus a two month old) and we had an excellent evening. We split four appetizers including sliders, tuna tartare, calamari salad and shrimp and grits and they were all spot on. Dinner was three pizzas, two large and one small, and this was more than enough and these were high quality, thin crust pizzas with the fig and prosciutto most popular among the group with my favorite being the Matchbox meat pizza. The servers were always on top of things and very nice to boot. Because of the baby we went relatively early, as did other groups with small children and it worked out extremely well."

  • "My 12 - year old daughter has been wanting to try this place for a while. I had been to the one in DC and knew what it was about. You are paying for décor and atmosphere, which I am not a big fan of doing. We ended up spending almost $100 for two adults and two kids-a "large" pizza, a small pizza, 3 mini burgers, an order of fries, a dessert and 3 soft drinks. It would have been overpriced at half the cost. The food was good, but nothing special that would entice me to come back, and the menu is pretty limited. I would only go back to make my daughter happy, I would never set foot in this place of my own volition."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I had driven by Matchbox many times and said I wanted to go. Well today I went for lunch and I think this will be my new lunch spot. I had the sliders, crab soup, and the apple/pear salad. Everything was wonderful. And why I am in love is the restaurant itself. The restaurant has a very nice decor and I'm even thinking about hosting an event there soon. Overall it was a wonderful first time there and I can't wait to go back."

  • "Matchbox is our favorite local restaurant. They have never disappointed - for dinner, brunch, or sitting at the pizza bar or in the bar area. We know we will have a nice meal. We regularly go there and look forward to it. They always offer great specials. The servers are very knowledgeable and attentive. Our favorite server is Stephanie (she has blue in her hair). She has a bubbly personality and goes above and beyond to make sure we are happy with our dining experience. However, every server we have had is great. Enjoy!"

  • "Matchbox has a well thought out menu, with something special for everyone, but the pizza is amazing. I make my own at home, but their pizza has a thin crust that perfectly offsets the toppings. The grilled romaine salad was also excellent, with just the tiniest char to bring out the flavor. Wish I could go back again today."
