Great good and service. My personal opinion is that the prices are a bit on the high end. We do a lot of fine dining and don’t have an issue paying for good food and service but for this type of place I think the prices should be a little lower.

Matchbox Restaurant has terrific ambience and frienly service. Soda and water glasses were promptly refilled. The food (pasta and pizza) was delicious, tasty, and hot. The location at Sawgrass Mills is excellent. I easily made a reservation on OpenTable. I would highly recommend this restaurant for people of all ages.

Absolutely horrible, service was very bad and food was worse.

A nice looking restaurant but the fact that it’s in the mall affects the quality of the Employees.

I was so disappointed. I had made reservations since it was Mother's Day. When we arrived all I saw were dirty tables. The hostess said we couldn't sit inside. I had reserved inside, but she said "No". She sat us at a dirty table and my son went to the manager and asked for a clean table inside.
He complied and gave us a table. Our waiter seemed very rushed, although he was very nice. He had 4 tables in his section and 6 dirty tables. He was serving and cleaning, we had to wait for refills, wait for the food and I felt bad for him. The other 4 tables of patrons looked very unhappy and were complaining.
I felt bad for the restaurant that they were clearly understaffed, but instead of having the manager and two people at the hostess stand, they should have been helping.
The food was absolutely delicious and would love to go back, but not if I have to deal with that.

My mom, brother and I came here for Mother’s Day. It’s listed as a black owned restaurant, but there’s no such ‘black owned’ vibe to be found here. It was very commercialized, they played house music, and it was all just, so basic. On top of that, some family’s kids were running around everywhere and no one seemed to care. The wait time was ridiculously long (nearly an hour for our food to come out), and the restaurant was nowhere near packed. No ‘wait food’ like bread or anything to satiate our hunger, and the food was way overpriced. Food was ok, just slightly better than Cheesecake Factory though. It’s safe to say none of us are ever coming back here again.

Sad to say, but the service here was horrible - and the restaurant was less than half full (on Mother's Day). Hard to say exactly why, but I suspect they had a lot of new people and management was really struggling to train them. Nevertheless, for the price one pays for drinks and dinner here, there is little excuse for poor service.

Very good food in a beautiful atmosphere. Sit outside if you can. The open air feel is refreshing and quite lovely. Only downside is that for brunch, their offerings are limited. Not a lot of options nor sides. Several items on the food and drink menu were not available on day we went. Overall wonderful restaurant, ambience and staff! Will be back.
