This place was great. Caught
This place was great. Caught up with a friend, so it was not too too loud, and his 11 year old son enjoyed it too. Great meal for three of us, bottle of wine, coffee and a desert, and it was under $100 before tip. It was very, very good.

Had a fabulous casual dinner.
Had a fabulous casual dinner. The butternut squash ravioli was excellent and the pizza with figs and prosciutto was superb. Would have both items again.

Took my family of 5 here after a long day touring DC. The food was delicious -- you have to try the coffee/donut dessert, and the fig/pancetta/gorgonzola pizza -- but the service was really the best part. The waiter brought our 3 kids raw pizza dough to play with while we waited! Would definitely recommend this place.

I love this Matchbox! It's never too crowded. The waiters are very friendly. The food never disappoints and the Pear drink that I had was amazingly delicious. I highly recommmend the Matchbox on Capitol Hill.

The best food and the best
The best food and the best service! I dined at two Matchbox locations this visit and was not disappointed at either. The prosciutto/mission fig pizza is the best!

This was the first time that we had brunch at Matchbox. We usually go for dinner for their great pizzas. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of brunch drinks and the breakfast options. We started our meal with the cast-iron cinnamon rolls - a must try. Our servers were pleasant and very accommodating. Great place for a weekend brunch.

It was our first time dining
It was our first time dining at MatchBox and overall it was wonderful and we'll definitely be back. When the table next to us sat down and included multiple children, we appropriately changed our conversation, which would not have been necessary had our tables not been on top of each other.

Matchbox is one of my favorite places in the city. The pizza is excellent but I have also tried several other things on the menu, including brunch items and I have never been disappointed. My parents were in town this weekend which is why we visited this time, it was a perfect outing!

Good pizza not too pricey
Was looking for a dinner place with two Tweens after sightseeing All day. Unique pizza choices for adults, plain cheese for kids. Choices of wines good, some served as half bottles which was perfect for us. Recommend reservations in advance as very popular place. Decor designed to catch young working professionals but still great for families

Very Good Brunch
Enjoyed our brunch there recently. Highlights were the Huevos Rancheros, Banana French Toast and the Vegetable Fratata. Pretty good "Fire" Bloody Mary, too. Liked the casual atmosphere and service was great via Camise.

Thanks Alex!! He was our awesome
Thanks Alex!! He was our awesome and accomadating server!! We were celebrating and cheering our friend who was scheduled to have her ACL surgery. Our group grew larger than our orginal reservation but Alex didn't bat an eye and moved us to a booth when it became available. The food was great and I can't wait to eat there again.

Great for brunch!
I had a reunion with some college friends passing through town and picked this place. The cinnamon rolls in cast iron were the brunch "appetizer" and a big hit - they're light and fluffy! I had the fritatta - MMMMMM! - but I wish there was more cheese in it! Our coffees kept getting refills as we lingered to catch up. Thanks for a great brunch!

Had brunch here and it didn't
Had brunch here and it didn't disappoint. The service was slow but we were there on Father's Day so maybe that had something to do with it. Definitely try the brunch pizza and cinnamon rolls!

It was my first time having brunch at Matchbox, although I've eaten there for lunch and dinner several times. The brunch menu is fun and decadent! (Banana bread french toast, anyone?) I had the Bloody Mary burger, which was awesome. It came with a side of greens, which made me fee slightly better about having a burger with a fried egg on top! The cocktail menu looked delish. A number of specialty mimosas and Bloody Marys. I had The 6 -- a Bloody Mary that comes with an Old Bay rim and a stick of bacon. I definitely recommend it. The atmosphere was nice too. They had the whole restaurant front open (huge glass windows) so that the restaurant just expanded out onto the patio. Very laid back and fun.

Among The Best at Barrack's Row
The hostess welcomed me with a warm greeting and acknowledged my reservation. Despite being 15 minutes early, my table was available, and I was seated promptly. Our server, Morgan, was attentive, knowledgeable and friendly, but not intrusive. Superior service and perfect meal pacing. She was familiar with the lunch specials and both the soup and the crab cake sliders accompanied by a delightfully fresh salad were great choices. Prices are very reasonable, especially for Capitol Hill, and serving sizes are generous without being overly so. The dining room was energetic, but not noisy; it's a great place to meet for a casual business lunch. Matchbox Capitol Hill is one of my "go to" places when I am visiting the Navy Yard.

Matches its older locations
We arrived early for our reservation and had to wait a few minutes for a very comfortable table on the 8th Street front. My girlfriend discovered a New Zealand sauvignon blanc -- Craggy Range -- that she thought delicious. I was a little disappointed in my Spicy Meatball pizza. The meatball itself was very tasty, but the pie seemed dull. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and intend to return soon.
