Got charged for every iced tea without being told, resulting in about $35 of iced tea (absolutely ridiculous for leaf water). The service was poor. The food was not as good as the amount we were charged for it. The only good thing was the meatball. Will not return.
Terrible service and so-so food. Place has really gone downhill over the years.
Food took over an hour to arrive. Clearly there is a massive staffing shortage at this location, but they continued to seat table after table after table.
Matchbox is one our favorite restaurants. Good food,a bit prcey, but not exceptionally so. Service is always excellent. Management eagerly attentive.
Pretty average experience. The ambiance is nice; however the menu is limited and the happy hour specials could be better.
Celebrating 21st Birthday! Manager snd servers were excellent. They did a great job.
The food at Matchbox is always great! You never can go wrong eating the mini burgers!!
Matchbox always delivers a fantastic dining experience. Great food and service!
Terrific food well-plated and served by friendly and professional staff, at a reasonable price.
I made reservations for my date and we were seated immediately. The food and our waiter was perfect.
Margaret, our server, was delightful. She anticipated our needs and was polight and friendly. The American breakfast was delicious.
Look forward to my next visit.
Had a lovely lunch with a chance to linger. Very enjoyable!
Mohamed was a great waiter; and the sliders were delicious! This was my first visit but I'll be back.
A comfortable , welcoming place to have a decent meal at fair prices. The outdoor dining area is inviting and there are plenty of spaced tables inside. Worth a visit!
Delicious as always!
I would be remiss if I did not mention the outstanding service of my Server, Marlene (7576). she was awesome!
Excellent server, Gabriel, very attentive and beautiful setting outside on a nice night.
Food is fine and service is very good. Decor in the restaurant is just awful though. Feels like a chain pizza restaurant in suburbia... the 14th Street location was so cool on the inside. Capitol Hill too. This really should be addressed.
the server was excellent but the prices does not match with the quality of the food. too pricey....
The service was a little disjointed and the food is just okay.
Had the crabcake sandwich with a small side caesar salad. Good crabcake--made from lump crab--served on a brioche bun. Messy to eat because the crab didn't hold together well, though it was delicious, and also because there was butter on top of the bun. I'd suggest they do away with that, as it's not necessary. The salad was fresh and a sizable portion--a nice alternative to French fries.
Excellent cocktails! Food was delicious and the service was excellent. There is a lot of outdoor seating and good pandemic protocols inside - highly recommend.
Terrific pizza at a reasonable price accompanied by professional and polite service. For lunch with an old friend this was the perfect setting.
Great food and service. Great food and service. Great food and service.
Food is way over priced for the quality. Adding a happy hour might entice more people to come to try it out.
Excellent, attentive service. Great food. Ate outside on the patio.
The first time we have been - was very nice, very good food and excellent service.
Issue: your booths were made for short, 75-00 pound people. Very uncomfortable - had to move to a four chair table. Your interior designers must not have read about the physically larger US population.
Outside tables nice; umbrellas unfortunately didn't provide shade for the tables - time was 3PM. Maybe bigger umbrellas? Maybe more attention to how umbrellas are placed vis-a-vis the tables.
Finally, inside all hard surfaces - noise was apparent - and the restaurant was half -empty on Friday. If all tables taken I would imagine no one could hear their table mates. But of course, I have been told more than once, the restaurants want the 'buzz.'
For the younger generations
Terrific pizza, outstanding and friendly service.
Everyone was really nice and professional in service.
Excellent meal outside with a wonderful draft beer. Service very responsive.
Had a wonderful time at the newest Matchbox location. Particularly loved our waiter Gabriel!
Just what we needed. Perfect mix of old favorites and new choices on the not overly complicated menu. Service was on point, friendly and fast but not rushed. Our waiter Chuck was super efficient and ready to assist whenever we needed something. The manager stopped over to ask how things were and we chatting for a few minutes too. All in all a very nice evening out.
Circa 2005 suburbs-style food. Pleasant surroundings and service.
Great addition to the neighborhood! Great patio space with good food and friendly service. The cauliflower pizza crust is great.
Food is uninspiring! No taste and too expensive for what you get per item.
Great ambiance in a convenient location. Entrees and pizza are good quality and sizeable. The drinks are just so-so. They sound amazing, but are a little flat. I was disappointed in the "jumbo" wings - 6 for $14. I expected large wings at that price, but they are standard size, so way overpriced. The only other warning is the tuna poke bowl - delicious, but there's a lot of chopped slaw to cut the warm grain/rice. Still tasty, just know what you're going in for at $24.
It's a good neighborhood place. The beer and wine list are pretty lame, but the food is good and the service is friendly.
Wonderful outing for Mother's Day. Staff and server was outstanding.
