Fantastic food and service. I recommend this restaurant or any occasion.
Our server was Emmanuel and he was awesome. He was so pleasant and really knew the menu and all about the dishes as it was a relatively new menu. The food was delicious and the service was so outstanding. We will return very soon.
hoping this place was just having an off night because we've gone and enjoyed it before. Service was beyond slow, servers were rude, and apps and food came within two minutes of each other.
Zack was fine as a server... however...
The music was SO not Matchbox! It was way too loud, the bass was so high that my chair was vibrating and the musical selection was NOT AT ALL what we are used to from MB. Matchbox blaring R&B [Drake] and Pop [Taylor Swift] tunes is certainly not in keeping with the more down tempo cool vibe [i.e. St. Germain] we are used. Add to that the loud and obnoxious party of 6 that was seated next to us... it was just BAD! My husband and I were both dissappointed. Sadly it was his birthday dinner...
Our waiter, Luke, was terrific! He was attentive, yet not overbearing. He allowed us to linger over dinner without making us feel rushed. The food is great and the atmosphere is lively.
We had guests in town and they love to go to Matchbox when they come. We had an enjoiyable dinner and the food was great!
Despite having a reservation, when we arrived we were told that we would have to wait because they were short on servers. Once seated, the server never put in the order for our appetizers so the main courses (pizza and hamburger sliders) came first. We were assured that we would have freshly made main courses after we got our appetizers. That didn't happen - clearly warmed over and dried out chicken/pesto pizza (the server waived the charge but that was beside the point). The Caesar salads appetizers were pathetic - limp lettuce not even cut up or tossed. I can over look one or two problems on a given night but this reflected lack of oversight and incompetence at this restaurant.
We sat in the back of the restaurant which was very noisy. Lightning above our table was very dim. I ordered a spinach salad with salmon which was very average and the salmon was over cooked and dry.
Our waiter was excellent. Food delicious. We will come again.
Great Pizza and wonderful service from Johanna. We look forward to coming back.
Amazing food! The pizza was on point and the wine was as well. Great place and be back for sure!
The cornbread was slightly burnt on top but overall the food was good. The service on the other hand not so much. By the end of the meal we had gone through 4 servers. When we sat down our server, #1, told us we could use both the loyalty and birthday rewards and we were later told by the manager, after the check had already been brought to the table by another server, #2, this wasn’t possible. Server #1 checked on us once and never came back to tell us he was leaving for the day. Another server, #2, dropped off the check and we had to request the loyalty and birthday reward be applied to the check. He asked me to write the phone number on the check so he could apply it. I did so and expected him to return momentarily. He didn’t and I had to look for someone to process the check. By this time we found another server, #3, to do just this. Finally a manager came by to explain why it couldn’t be done and I mentioned the original server, #1, it could be done and the manager still said no. I understood why but it would’ve been nice if the original server knew this or got the information before telling us we could. Between the 3, 4 servers if you count the young lady who dropped off the food and bussed the table, the service was one of the worst we’ve experienced. This was supposed to be my birthday lunch/dinner with my daughter and the experience was not a good way to celebrate. Disappointing to say the least service wise.
The food and ambience was great. The waitress loss track with us, and took our order late.
Good job, the food and service were of a high quality.
best pizza anywhere, never had bad meal
Ive been coming here for years. Its always been a fav of mine! Within the past 3 years Im assuming Management has changed because the menu has changed and unfortunately not for the better. Still good but not that guaranteed great that Im used to. I had to send something back for the first time ever here.
My whole family loves Matchbox. We drive down there all the way from Frederick every once in awhile. Their pizza is awesome, especially love the spicy meatball which has bacon and oregano. We don’t always get dessert there but we’re pleasantly surprised by their churros, brownie sundae and banana bread pudding. Highly recommend!
Best food and service I've ever had. My waiter was awesome. :)
Other than being flagged on open table as not showing up for our reservation, the food and service was good.
Service was fast and server was friendly and helpful. They left us alone when my friend and I lingered for conversation after our lunch was done.
Great, food, great service, beautiful, rustic-looking restaurant. There were three in my party, and we each ordered a different pizza, and all three were delicious! I'll be back again, soon!
The food was excellent. Price was a little steep. The atmosphere was great. And the wait staff were very nice
I made a request for Valentine's day and they were able to fulfill it.
We dined for Valentines. Our last visit was disappointing but we decided to give matchbox another try and I’m glad we did. We had a nice table, wonderful server (Stephanie) and a delicious meal. The kitchen as a little slow but that was understandable given the holiday. Stephanie was super attentive and very friendly. I loved the mini burgers and salad I ordered. My husband loved his chicken sandwich.
Matchbox is ALWAYS delicious!! Absolute perfection. We love it and go there frecuently
My good gf and I met for a late lunch. Our server and food were both amazing. Second time I've been to Matchbox, though first time to Rockville location. Both experiences were excellent. I was a bit sad that on my 2nd visit, they had taken their crave-worthy, left me salivating for days lemony mustardy salmon off the menu, but one can only pray they bring it back (or give me the recipe!!!). I highly recommend Matchbox and hope it continues its tradition of great food and service despite being a chain of sorts.
We ordered gluten-free pizza, delighted to discover there was a gluten free option available. The pizza was good!
We went there Sunday afternoon - good food and service - we were seated near a large party so noise level was a little high - but not disruptive - love this restaurant.
As usual, the food was very good, but unfortunately we had a very bad experience on this visit. We were placed in a back room behind the bar and it looked to be used for large parties. There was a very nice large group next to us, but across the way was a large group with several out of control loud small children.
We asked to be moved very early on when the noise was getting out of control, but were told there were no other tables available and there was nothing that could be done. Throughout the evening there were several times where we found our conversation more about the other table than our own. It was just not the way to spend a Saturday night out. Not sure I would return based on how the situation was handled.
Constantly cold temperatures even during winter months. Kitchen does not follow waitress instructions regarding diet. Took a long time for waitress to initially come to table. Moved us to different station.
I had a great experience at Matchbox. The food was excellent and not too expensive; the service was great; and the ambience was perfect. I had the spinach salad with grilled salmon and it was perfect. Matchbox is now one of my favorite restaurants. I highly recommend it.
Love the side room with the fireplace!
Matchbox never fails to provide a good dining experience. We were seated immediately upon arrival and our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. The pizza was excellent! We will definitely come here again.
It was good and fun!
I took a large group of my staff to lunch here. We had a reservation, which when I needed to change it from 4 to 8 people, the hostess was very willing and able to assist and make the change. The food was really delicious- everyone loved their entrees, and most of us had delicious leftovers.
This visit was not like in the past. My food was terrible. I ordered the Holy Grail Pizza. It arrived with the crust burnt... not light, brown... but BLACK. The basil looked like it had sat under the heating lamp for a while. It was wilted and lifeless. The sauce looked like it was dumped straight from a can of tomato paste. What also surprised me was that the restaurant was not busy. I was there on Super Bowl Sunday at 11am. The place was very quiet. Boo, Matchbox... you are better than that.
Probably the best Matchbox in the area. Service is great.
Spicy meatball pizza was bland. I’m not sure our sever heard us clearly when ordering. Overall, not my best Matchbox visit - several items I like were not available - crab stack and salad ( with banana peppers and Calamari?) 😒
Despite calling ahead and indicating this on my reservations online, there was no high chair or booster seat there when we got to our table. We had to wait until our table was 'ready' yet they still didn't have the proper chairs or the kids dough ready as I had asked when I called 15 minutes prior to arrival.
Loved the crab cake sandwich. Waitress messed up order but was quick to fix error. Would definitely go back.
