Great waiter! Good food. Nice time
We were fortunate to get a table upstairs that was very quiet and allowed the server to be attentive. However, they were out of several beer choices and my pizza was severely over cooked. Unfortunately we were pressed for time and didn’t have the option of returning it.
Great food. Great ambiance. Perfect for couples or families. Very friendly/helpful staff.
Asked our server several times for additional dressing for a salad. The dressing was delivered 20 mins later and I was almost done with my salad.
Great service and food is consistent, due drinks could be better
Great pizza. Great cream of chowder soup. Drinks were good. Service was good. No complaints. We enjoyed it
Group of 12 60+ friends for our regular dinner out. Chatting was easy-quiet on the 2nd level. Menu was varied and the food great. I don’t remember our server’s name but she readily agreed to 12 separate checks to expedite our departure! Parking was an issue-$20 lot or walk several blocks from a 2 hr residential neighborhood. No valet available. A member of our group asked about an elevator and felt that one of the hostesses was rude. I didn’t hear the exchange so can’t attest to the validity of her feelings. Overall a great place in a busy urban area.
We were seated 10 mins after our reservation time. Food was great but the service was lacking. Once seated it was an additional 10-15 minutes before we had to stop someone to bring us water and take our order.
Awesome! The cinnamon rolls were to die for and the bottomless mimosa bar was fab!
We were in DC for 4 days celebrating our granddaughters birthday.
We had a very average table and a below average server. Her birthday was not even acknowledged. Possibly not her fault if she wasn’t advised by the host. Either way it’s frustrating. If you are going to participate on OpenTable and ask the question of the occasion you should recognize the occasion.
It was fine food, fine experience but I want to live and extraordinary life and fine doesn’t cut it in my world for a round two.
I own my own event company and crest experiences for my clients and would never send them here.
All 13 of us were delighted with the food! Our server was excellent. Some returned the next day for lunch.
I live just a couple of blocks from this Matchbox location and I have eaten their regularly since they came to the neighborhood. I love coming her for special occasions and on nights that I just don’t want to cook. Unfortunately, they have changed their menu significantly over the years, losing many of my favorites and replacing them with things of lesser quality. hows. The replacement of the mini trio appetizer with th mini duo is such a disapointment. I have had the steak frites several times. Ugh! It is a cheap, tough piece of meat. The pizza is still good. The ribs are sub-par. The cornbread sucks. I do like their salads for th most part. I will pay more for the quality. in the shrimp and grits, which is good, please offer more grits. I ate there three times this week with different people just to be more disappointed each night with the food. The service from the wait staff and the manager was outstanding.
Fabulous visit. The waiter and manager were super helpful and nice.
Excellent location. Staff were great
Good consistent service and food quality.
Reached a bit for a business meeting but was pleasantly surprised. Good food, average beer selection and good staff.
Reasonable menu at reasonable prices. Might have gotten higher rating but they literally ran out of green salad. Was pretty surprised with a restaurant of this size.
arrived ahead of our reservation time but they quickly seated us in a nice big booth, which was more private and made it easier to talk. only negative comment is that after seeming to be initially attentive our waitress disappeared on us and we had to flag down someone to take our order.
I was under the impression that the purpose of a reservation is to avoid having to be in line to wait for a table. At matchbox that's not true apparently. I had to wait 15-20 minutes for a table. What's the purpose of the reservation then?
The wait staff are always friendly, Great food!!! My husband and I love coming here.
Great space, service and food. Parking is a bit of an issue, but not impossible.
we waited a very long time for our food. I've been to this location several times before with no problems but waitstaff really dropped the ball this visit. The manager was gracious and rushed our food to us after we spoke up about never getting entrees.
Service was outstanding from our waiter and other waiters that didn’t wait out table. I’ve been to the 14th Street location and the SE location and I’ve never been disappointed. Food is seasoned just right; I ordered the shrimp and grits for an appetizer and my entree’s were the chicken alfredo and shrimp linguine.
Great experience for my first time, Darren was great the whole night and I would definitely come back.
Came here for Valentine's Day with my boyfriend and we were able to get a table day of! Great service and really good food. Would definitely recommend all of their DC locations!
Service was really bad- took someone at minimum 20 minutes to come to our table, and 30 minutes seated before getting offered water. When the waiter was taking our drink order, he was unaware of what the local draft beers were, but offered to go get the list- which took another 15 minutes (still no water at this point either). It was a solid hour of being seated before HALF of our table of 6 got drinks, and another 15 before the other half got theirs. An hour+ for our first round of drinks. Ridiculous.
Best place to go, the people are so friendly and genuine!
We went here with a bunch of friends for our birthday and had the best time! Not only was the restaurant super accommodating with our big group, they also managed last minute arrivals and order changes with ease.
We had an off evening there in terms of food preparation but the server and the manager tried hard to rectify the problems. We were definitely happy when we left in spite of the problems. We will give them another try.
This seems to have been an off night. I love this spot and will continue to frequent this location. The steak was cold and my friend’s short ribs were over cooked. This is not the norm.
The food is usually good. My food arrived cold this time, as if it had been sitting a while.
When making reservations on OpenTable, it gave me the option for "High tops" or regular seating (I dont recall the other term), I selected the other term. When I got there, the hostess proceeded to bringing us to the high tops, I let her know that I selected the other option she said she will see what she can do. I then asked if there were any available booths because that is what I wanted, she said no. Shortly after being seated at the lower tables, I got up to wash my hands, there were two empty booths. The hostess lied. Aside from that the food was just okay.
The ambiance was very nice for a Weekend night dinner. Our waiter was very personable and he also gave us a complimentary appetizer since it was our first time eating at the restaurant. The drinks were strong but tasty, and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this location to others.
Service wasnt the best nor what the communciation between waitstaff and customer
Pizza is very good
We were disappointed they took the Prime Rib off the menu and changed the Salmon and put it on some soup with veggies. The salmon on soup is just odd. I hope they go back to the old menu, it was better.
They were out of the Brownies but every thing else was wonderful.
We really enjoyed our evening at Matchbox although for a restaurant known for pizza it was a bit disappointing that the shrimp and grits and the tuna tartare tacos were far superior to the pizza.
Excellent food; attentive and professional wait staff and greeters.
My date liked the food, but as a vegan diner I was a little upset. I let a note with the restaurant about my diet restrictions but the hostesses obviously didn’t tell my server. After I told my server I wanted my veggie burger without chipotle mayo, it still came with it anyway.
