Bubbling, thin crust pizzas, mini burgers, crisp salads, and craft cocktails...four great reasons to visit matchbox today. We’re Ashburn's neighborhood gathering place for fun, upscale casual dining, with local, award-winning beers, broad spectrum wines, and handcrafted signature cocktails you won’t find anywhere else.

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

In the heart of Loudoun County is our dining oasis with two light-filled levels--each with shaded outdoor patios for great people-watching.

This spacious location has indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate all event needs. The private Barrel Room accommodates 55 guests and comes with comfortable seating, a wood-burning fireplace and private wine coolers to store your favorite vintages.

We typically have a nice experience at Matchbox, but our Sunday brunch did not fit the norm. We were seated in the bar area with a party of 5. The service was extremely poor, and the waitress appeared to have an attitude for no reason. She took a long time to bring our drinks and even take our order. She walked us several times by without taking our order later asking if we needed anything. The food was good though. Her attitude improved as we were close to finishing our meal but by then it was too late.

Hostess was able to accommodate our reservation change. Food was excellent. Drinks were hit or miss and overpriced for the size. Service was just OK but that is a sign of the current times. Asked for a birthday presentation as we were celebrating our daughters 21st birthday and the staff was not cooperative, just putting a waffle with whipped cream on the table and walking away. All of the food was delicious and I would go back again.

There were 4 of us. We had reservations and were seated immediately. 3 out of 4 of us enjoyed our meals. My husband had the crab cakes. He liked them but they were very salty. We have been there many times and its always good.

The environment is amazing! The décor and design are very impressive. I had the pizza, which was wonderful. The frustration came from painfully slow service, waiting endlessly for refills, etc. And it is NOISY. We were having a farewell dinner for a friend who is leaving the state. There were only 5 of us in our party. They seated a large party of about 12 people near us. They were loud, but the design of the place absorbs no sound and actually echoes and amplifies sound to the point that I couldn't hear the people at my table who were just two seats down.

Great for ambiance...not for actually wanting to converse with people or have decent service.

Horrible service. Gave it another chance after the last time and service was worse! I have not been to a restaurant with bad service like this in a while...seems as though they don't care and don't train well.

Love Matchbox. I always go to the one loudoun location. The food is consistently good and the bar has a great vibe. Parking can be a challenge as the place has built up over the years so plan on parking at the parking garage 200 yards away.

The hostess did not confirm our check in and cancelled our reservation while we were seated at the table, and told our friend arriving late that there was no way we were seated. Our server was a little pushy and clearly trying to get us to finish up as we were the last table in her section even though we were only halfway through our meals. Food and drinks were excellent but service was underwhelming

I love their food choices and how simple the menu is. I go to mosaic as well as the loudon location. I am however disappointed with the service we got yesterday. I had the same server when I visited last month and I was disappointed. I had a girls night out and it was my friends first time there so they were definitely disappointed with the service. I might not go back to the Ashburn location and stick to mosaic

we LOVE Matchbox! the food and the menu are outstanding. the only, only thing I would mention remotely critical is that the size of the tables is not conducive to the generous helpings. we had a table for two and had absolutely NO room for our appetizers much less our entrees.

Very disappointed this visit. Either Matchbox as a chain has changed their menu, or the One Loudoun restaurant utilizes a much smaller menu. Maybe it's a COVID menu and will change again? Matchbox used to have extensive choices... but no longer! And, there were very few options for gluten free or vegetarian. Quite disappointing in 2021 where most restaurants provide numerous options to accommodate many diet restrictions.

My GF daughter and I ordered the pear and blue cheese salad with steak. Thank goodness for the steak! The salad by itself was nothing more than a simple side salad. There are SO many ways that restaurants often make dinner size salads both inviting and fulfilling. We were both left totally unsatisfied.

On a positive note- our server was very attentive and I always like the Matchbox settings. Unfortunately, I do not plan to come back unless I hear about improved menu options offered here. There are too many other restaurants we can try!
