Matchbox - Rockville
New at matchbox: brunchbox, our new unlimited brunch with small plates and drinks. Think: an endless selection of dishes like our avocado toast, breakfast nachos, chicken + grits and, of course, any of our small pizzas
A titan of a space, Rockville was modeled after a hunting lodge yet still manages to feel cozy.
A comfortable fireplace fills the space, as well as two wood-fired ovens that churn out thin-crust pizzas in minutes. With two outdoor patios and the private 30-seat Congressional Room, there’s plenty of space for intimate dinners, large parties and get-togethers.

Make the Shrimp and Grits an entree!
The food was great; however the server took a while to get our pizza. She said it was burnt so she had it re-done waited too long for the pizza to finally arrive (almost over an hour).
Very rude servers and very bad service. Avoid the place if possible. Many other similar places around with better service experience.
Can’t get enough of this place ! But people sitting next to us has kids running around
The food was phenomenal as was our waiter. Normally it would have been 5 stars but you lost two stars because the mini trio appetizer was not on the menu - a HUGE bummer because it was SO good!
My friend and I enjoyed items from the standard brunch menu. It was tasty! My only complaint is that the server (not our waiter) who brought out our order placed it in front of customers at a different table. Then when she brought it to us, she mixed up the orders. I think it's careless of the kitchen and waitstaff.
Another great meal at Matchbox! We were a bit late for our reservation because the massages were scheduled beforehand were delayed, but they still sat us right away. Food was delicious and service great.
Loud but tasty, best thing was the terrific service from NuNu.
The food was good. The cocktails were tremendous. As a first time customer I was impressed and would recommend to others. As a matter of fact I will be showing up to check out the happy hour very soon.
Great as always
There were a couple of areas that could have been better. The sauce on the tuna tacos was HOT HOT - too spicy. We only got bread when we asked for it - it was not offered nor on the menu. My salmon & spinach salad was excellent. Maybe we should have ordered pizza??
The weather that night was much too nice and we did not want it to end. It was a wonderful day for Pi Day.
We happened to schedule our dinner during happy hour. The offerings were very good and a good value. We will definitely go again.
Matchbox in Rockville seems to be past its prime. My pizza was lukewarm when I got it - too warm to send back but not warm enough to be really good. The flavor was ordinary - nothing special. My wife got tuna salad and thought the portion was too small for the money. I used to think Matchbox was a treat for which I would be willing to stand in line. No longer. (There was no line on Sunday night.)
The service is great, I was here for date night and the food was good. The pizza in my opinion was a bit too thin. But the pear salad was good. My fiance enjoyed the barbecue burger.
Salad was great but pizza not good !!! Dry and tasted like frozen pizza heated.
Food and service have been better-
Here is the thing, Matchbook the first few years was AMAZING! the food, ambiance everything. But as most restaurants do, quality tends to slow down if there is too much competition around. The one pizza i use to get was fig and Prosciutto....years ago, it looked and tasted like a brick oven pizza, fresh and covered in arugula, now; much, much different, more like a regular pizza with literally 6 sprigs of arugula, with 6 chunks of fig.....they were out of Chardonnay, and the lights were so dim in the bar area i couldn't even see the person in front of me. This has been the case the last two time I've been in the last 2 years! come back old Matchbox!! Oh but salad was amazing so i will recommend for that!
Good food and service. Overall experience was good. A lot of echo and pretty loud. The waiter didn’t know the price of one of the specials, which ended up being much higher than his guess.
I love Matchbox. We go all the time, and normally have a good experience. Last night was the exception. The service was very bad and slow. And they got our pizza order wrong. We would have mentioned that to the waitress had she actually come by to ask.
Amazing service as always. We had a large group and our server was expedient and great. We dibs at matchbox quite often and always have a great experience.
Table by the door it was freezing..ask to move several times and there was several tables open..
Too cold all over the restaurant. Customers ate with their coats on!
Great food !
Always a pleasure. Pizzas, salads or burgers... perfect for informal dining with family and/or friends.
Our server was great and everything was delicious!!!!
Everyone is helpful and polite. Nice atmosphere! Would recommend going here.
Food and service were wonderful. Would definitely recommend to others. Great place.
Good food. Great service.
Waited 20 min before server came to table and 30 min wait for food we saw other tables get quick service and food before our family did and we had 2 toddlers as well and noting was expedited except for drinks. I expected much better service for the amount of guest that was in the restaurant, overall a very unacceptable Sunday evening at Matchbox
i have eaten here many times, and hung out at the bar. no complaints there. i recently went for brunch with my family. the regular menu is available, but the brunch is $31, unlimited food for 2 hours. small plates, and you check off the items on a list, like at dim sum. the items on the brunch menu were good. the only problem is that none of those items are available on the regular menu. the Walk of Shame breakfast burrito (small plate on the brunch menu) is no longer on the main menu. Good food, just not worth $31. Matchbox, you should at least have a couple brunch items on the main menu.
Everything was great!
We wanted gluten free pizza, but they were out of dough. My friend found something else on the menu and we had a great evening.
It was freezing, I am normal warm but I had to put on my coat,
Prosciutto white pizza is reliably delicious!
A pleasant evening. We were in the back room which was more quiet. The good is good.
Brunch was great
Many of the brunch options were tasty!
Our server was great and very helpful .
I always enjoy my meal at Matchbox, and the waitstaff is always friendly and accommodating.
