The food was good and the service was very good. We enjoyed the brunch and they were able to give us everything we wanted and the server was exceptional. When you get good service it worth the cost of the food🐶.
We often eat at Matchbox before Washington Capitals games. Our OpenTable reservation ensures that we are seated promptly. Our server always understands the time we need to leave to get to the arena in time for the start of the game. Sandy was our server at our last visit and she was prompt and cordial. (We have had this same experience with all our servers in the past and this is one reason we continue to return.) They also have a great selection of entrees and the best pizzas in the area. One of my wife's favorites is the braised short ribs that are very tender.
Great restaurant but disappointed in some of the old menu items that have been dropped, especially the sausage and rigatoni pasta.
As usual the food was great as was the service!
They just released new menus and that caused major kitchen delays. They had to remake my dish. While the long wait was an issue, the staff did a good job communicating and the manager comped our entire meal and that of the next table. We have ban a customer there many times and based on how they handled this problem, I will continue to be a customer.
Waiter/service/food was all excellent. Only complaint (which we did not voice at the time) is that the it is freezing cold outside with a windchill in the teens but there was cold air blowing through the vents. Our waiter was so accommodating I bet he could have done something about it if we had notified him.
Started out ok but the staff seemed to loose interest by the end of the evening. Food was tasty. Think the staff just wanted to go home.
We had an exceptional experience. As first time diners, we received special treatment which we really appreciated. The service was excellent! The food was delicious and the servings were ample. Highly recommend!
Matchbox has some unique menu items like a pear salad that we like to share. There pizzas are among the best in the Washington DC area!
Overall this was a disappointing experience at Matchbox. Service was slow at times, wine glass wasn’t totally clean, and food was just ok. It wasn’t horrible but Considering for years Matchbox was amazing and always packed, we were disappointed.
