I have been to the Crystal City location several times and decided to give Chinatown a shot. Same excellent food and great ambience. Location seems a little smaller and service was decent but it did take us longer that I would have liked to get our check.
Great service and food! Pizza came out very fast!
Went here on a recommendation from a local and wasn't disappointed. Definitely make reservations though, as it gets crowded during the weekend dinner rush.
Terribly accommodated handicap party member, would not go back to this location
Matchbox is consistently good. The Chinatown location is our restaurant of choice before Capital One events.
We were asked to move tables halfway through dinner because they forgot they had a private party where we were seated.
Perfect, loved our meal
We went to dinner after a long conference day. Reserving ahead was very helpful, and we were seated quickly. Our server was attentive, even tho we were pretty inefficient in ordering, given that we were having a lot of fun just chatting. Food was casual, good, beer was good...all good!
It was such a lovely date with my boyfriend. We went for brunch and it was his first time and he loved it. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. We will be returning.
Service was poor
Had to ask for everything
Pizzas were bland,no real flavor.
Server never brought anything we asked!
My friend had the fettuccine Alfredo and said it was very good. I had the gluten free pizza. The crust was better than most.
I wish they would put the time in to discover the secret of a truly great gluten free pizza crust. I have had one before where the texture was like real pizza crust.
The temperature was a little chilly in the dining area. When we passed through the bar area it was fine.
Overall I would consider going again. 👍
Very good service. The food was very good as well. No complaints.
Excellent customer service! The staff went out their way to set up the wine for me and my husband anniversary. Waiter was soooooo refreshing and knowledgeable of THE ENTIRE MENU!!! Haven’t been in 4 years I look forward to coming back! Great food and vibes!
My date and I had dinner here before an event. The space is large. Our server was fast and courteous. We both had pizzas, and they were prepare fast and tasted good.
It was decent food. Not blow-your-mind good, though.
The pizzas are good & they are good about adaptations. Service was friendly in a good way. Burger was good. Calamari light. Minestrone good & substantial (could have been hotter).
We were seated 15 minutes after our reservation time, the waiter took 10 minutes to even speak to us, and then we were told the kitchen was backed up by at least 30 minutes. We were on a schedule and did not have an hour to waste before even getting our food. We had to leave to find food elsewhere.
I would give my rating an NA for food and value, but that's not an option.
This was my first time at this particular MatchBox. It did not disappoint. We were seated and had a glass of wine in hand with time to look at the menu. The crab cakes and sliders were delicious as well as the ahi tuna tacos. The apple, pear, pecan and blue cheese salad was delicious!
Friendly service and reliably well prepared food for a reasonable price.
Even though we made a reservation, it still took an additional 15 minutes to be sat. That's not to say we didn't have a great time or meal, just that it was very busy (before a Caps game) and guests should plan accordingly if visiting before an event at Captial One Arena. Besides that the service and food were great and I would recommend Matchbox to anyone looking for good pizza and Beer in a casual, fun environment.
it took a long time for our food to arrive. when it did, our pizza was incorrect but we didn't have time to reorder and wait. the server should have given us a small discount or offered something as restitution.
Matchbox is my favorite, hands down! I just love this place! Their food NEVER disappoints and the servers are super friendly!
All Matchbox restaurants have outstanding food and wonderful staff. The Chinatown location is a perfect locating for a business lunch.
Just fair! The menu isn't auspicious, and the food was just reasonable! Serviço very poor! We wont come back!
We sat at the bar for a quick bite before our event at nearby sixth and I. We ordered off of the happy hour menu--a real deal! The sliders were great, especially with that mountain of onion straws! The pizza are really good. Thin, crisp crust, wood fired. The server/bartender was great. Cool spot! We will definitely go back and try other things from their more extensive menu.
Food and atmosphere were great. Service was not the best - was very nice but had to ask for things several times and seemed upset when we corrected our order. We were a large crowd though. Last time I was there I had excellent service so I think it was a one off situation.
Service was OK but the good was poor quality. Children's meal arrived COLD! Yuck cold French fries and almost impossible to get in touch with wait staff.
Would not recommend restaurant.
Great kids platter. Great big booths and drawing materials for kids. Good pizza.
Pizza was very good. Ribs okay. It shouldn't take 15 minutes for a bottle of wine to be brought to the table. Wine finally arrived with our meal, then we had to chug a lug it, so that we could finish the bottle and not feel cheated. Constant apologies from servers to the table beside us too. Not sure for what but shouldn't be necessary if you just take care of the customer.
Apple and pear salad was excellent. Took a while to get the Pizza. We requested extra crispy but pizza bottom was still soft. Regardless, the pizza was good.
We celebrated an early Valentine’s Day and the food was delicious and worth every penny.
We were “ welcomed “ with a “what are you doing here attitude!” We were seated and the waiter finally showed up at our table. He obviously did not want to be there and it shows! We told him what we wanted and he got it wrong. Made a snide remark about what we ordered even though he brought the wrong thing! Noise was loud and music was too loud for people to enjoy a normal conversation. I usually don’t say anything about a restaurant and service but we ate here twice while in DC and both times we got the same waiter and he was the same both times!!!!! Probably won’t go back!!!!
Loved their burgers and there service was great. The hockey game had just ended so there were a lot of people in there but that didn't matter. They still did great
Server got order wron the made snid remark when we got ready to leave. He acted like he really didn't want to be there!!! It really showed! Probably won't go back.
I love this place and had a chance to share his place with friends. The food was excellent Thanks for making it nice.
Great Caps pre-game spot. Fun atmosphere, good selection of beers. Came for the pizza and mini burgers, never disappotined!
Great spot for dinner and beers before a Caps game, highly recommend!
Jesus T. was the best server we’ve ever had at Matchbox, and we’ve been there so many times the hostesses know us by name. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Seems like the quality of the food has gone down with the menu change for the lunch hour. Hopefully they get some feedback to go back to how it was. Still not a bad lunch spot.
Food wasn’t great; hoping it was just a bad day. Shells in the grab soup; salad was overdressed; bad coffee
Service was great
Lots of booths; so not great for business lunch, but fab for friends
