We heard the pizza is good, but we tried other items instead. The crab sandwich was a little too fishy for our liking, and the beet salad was good but could have used a little more flavor. But we loved that it included golden beets.

We had a group of eight and had requested an balcony table. We were very happy that they were able to accommodate our request. All of our food was excellent and our waitress was attentive. A perfect evening! Thank you.

The Place to Be.
Matchbox is thee place to dine and wine while in Palm Springs. It is right in the center of the main street. Their food is delicious and so are their Martini's.

Mother's Day Lunch
I picked this spot because it seemed like my family would be able to relax, chat, and catch up. I was right. The food and service were great, but the atmosphere is relaxing and it isn't too noisy to hear your own table's conversation. It was a really perfect place. We will be back for a romantic dinner soon! :)

Great birthday experience! It was my 3rd time but the rest of my groups first and it was awesome. Ended up not even leaving when it came to late night drinks, just stayed on the beautiful patio!!

I made the reservation originally
I made the reservation originally for 1, then a friend joined me so modified the reservation. When we got there they had us on one of the few balcony tables for 2 overlooking the square and main street. I have to say that it was one of the most romantic places to be. The food was great, selection was good and had a nice bottle of Australian wine that was very reasonably priced. All in all, it was a great evening.
My only concern was WHO was serving us. It seemed that the hostess did most of the work, taking our order, getting the wine, etc. We did see the waitress as she did check in on us. The service was attentive without hovering. It was just a little confusing on who was our main server. And in my book that is not a big thing.

Recently ate here with family members in town for wedding. Got a reservation for 6 on short notice through OpenTable and restaurant was most accommodating on a very busy night. Lots of choices and food was excellent. Great selection for all appetites. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Palm Springs and want a little spice of life.

Not the same as the DC ones
I am from DC, but my parents wanted to try this place and so I love it when I am in DC, so why not?
There were some of my favorite things missing from the menu! Beignets, some of their pizzas, beet salad!
BUt otherwise their food is up to par!

early dinner a great find
Loved the pizza and sliders on the early dinner.
we wanted to eat early to see a movie...great pizza
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went here on a recommendation from the place we were staying and it didn't disappoint!! All three entrees ordered at the table were cleaned up and enjoyed. The steak and wedge, the crab sandwich and the salmon with polenta!!
We sat outside and it was warm, but the service crew kept our cold drinks refilled without prompting and we lacked for nothing.
Great job Matchbox!!
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Terrific place to dine.
Matchbox on Palm Springs Canyon is terrific. The service is always super. We enjoyed the special summer pizza treat and of course not paying corkage for the wine we brought was great. A wonderfully filling dinner for a group of four at a price of only $44 -- yippee! What a deal.

Go for Brunch
You may not think of going to a pizza place for brunch, but it's awesome. Definitely get the cinnamon rolls in the cast iron skillet. I had the crab cake benedict as my entree, and it was awesome. A huge helping of crab cake wrapped in bacon; it can't be beat!

A table of boisterous women not far from our booth was the only negative comment I could make about our dinner at Matchbox.

Match Box pizza - irresistible
I had the Prosciutto and Mission Fig topped with Arugula pizza for the second time. It is delicious and the crust is crispy and tasty. We had the special chopped salad beforehand which was excellent. Lots of smokey bacon and a fresh dressing. I easily could have eaten more.
The entire menu has something for everyone.

Lov the place, especially watching the 4th of July fireworks from the balcony tables this year. And also sitting at the fire pit is amazing on cool fall and winter evenings.

Elegant dining in casual atmosphere
Very nice selection of specialty pizzas and burgers along with entrees covering a range of tastes with chicken, ribs, steak and pasta with a southern and/or Cajun flair. The chicken with Cajun sauce and grits was excellent and full of flavor without being too spicy.

We had a wonderful dinner
We had a wonderful dinner at Matchbox while visiting Palm Springs from Dallas. One of us had a pizza that had a lovely, crisp, thin crust - delicious - and one of us had the Trio on the appetizer menu, which I would highly recommend. It had 2 hamburger sliders, 2 scallops and 4 tuna rolls. The combination seemed a little odd to me, but it worked and every bite was great.

Second time we have eaten there...first time, we were delighted. The second time was even better than the first!! The pizza with chicken and pesto is killer...beats any other in town! Service was great, and the outdoor seating is wonderful if weather permits. I would highly recommend it if you are strolling around downtown Palm Springs and want to relax with some good food that won't great your bank account!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unfortunately, we had a bad experience at every other restaurant we went to. Waiters where arrogant and rude. So at matchbox we where expecting the same. We where proven wrong. The service was excellent, the waiters where courteous and friendly. Thumbs up
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Staff was genuinly friendly but not overbearing. Service was prompt and pfofessional. Made for a very enjoyable evening. Food was very good as well. The best fish and chips we have ever had.

On our recent visit to Palm
On our recent visit to Palm Springs, we visited Matchbox. We sat at a table on the outdoor balcony. A musician was in the street right below us and provided wonderful music. The food was excellent at a very reasonable price. Would definitely return on our next visit.

Best in Palm Springs
This was a gem, recommended to us by a local person. We sat in a private balcony overlooking Palm Canyon Drive and watched the vendors set up for the regular Thursday night festival. When the festival started, this was the perfect vantage point for people watching. Meanwhile, the cocktails and wine list were great. We took full advantage of happy hour. Two appetizers were noteworthy: shrimp wrapped in bacon and served on cheese grits, and a melted mozzarella-bruchetta ball with spicy tomato sauce. Half price fire roasted pizza (with fig and prosciutto) got a rave review from our guest. Wife and I had big salads, hers was topped with scallops and mine was topped with salmon. Definitely a great spot.

Best fish and chips in a long time
Great food, excellent and attentive service. Portions are substantial so don't over order. You will want to eat everything.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't judge by the cover
We were here on a conference and chose it based on some local reviews. We arrived and were put off by the run down look of the outdoor bar, but the service and drinks were fine. When we were taken inside for our meal, the ambiance was much better. The food was very good: everyone at the table, vegetarians, ominivores, and even a restaurant professional enjoyed the pizzas and salads. The desserts were good; the mudpie better than the lemon tart. The noise level allowed our table of six to hear and speak to each other. The service was attentive and professional.

We shared the Q Special with chicken, roasted peppers and portobello mushrooms. DELICIOUS!!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food... great service. It's always on our list of places to eat when visiting Palm Springs. The crab cake sandwich does not disappoint, and the small pizza is the just right amount for one person. Don't even think about dinner on the weekends without a reservation.

Romantic Patio Affair
My husband and I rarely get an opportunity to get away and are so grateful that we were able to go to Matchbox for his birthday:) The food, prices, service and ambiance is excellent! We enjoyed the lights below from a beautiful patio seat and loved the street fair gala. Have highly recommended Matchbox to our friends! Overall, an A plus!:) ~Happy Zoni's
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We get together so infrequently, so we have a lot to talk about. After drinks, the food came and we were all impressed with presentation and quality. Our initial plan was to have a bite and go to the Street Fair but the company, conversation, and atmosphere were so great that we sat and talked way longer that we had planned. Thank goodness it was not a busy night for the restaurant. We were not rushed or bothered in any way - but left alone to enjoy the evening. I'm sure all walked away with a very positive impression.
