    Air conditioning was out so it was very hot in the restaurant. The waiter was inattentive. We actually sat there and counted over ten times within an hour he would pass our table not asking if we needed anything even though all our glasses were empty and appetizer dishes were stacked on our table. My mother ordered pellegrino to which he gave her just club soda. She asked about it and he just stated that pellegrino comes from the tap, which is completely false. Seemed to just be gaslighting us. We also ordered guacamole on the side to which he just brought out sliced Acevado’s. Little screw ups like this plus his complete disregard made the Mother’s Day dinner feel very off. Will not ever be going back to this restaurant again.

    The food was okay. The hostess was rude and didn’t acknowledge us once we came up to the stand. She continued to ignore us and wouldn’t wait on us. I informed the manager and he took care it. I honestly won’t return ever. And this was on Mother’s Day.

    The kitchen was extremely slow. Over a one-hour wait. They did try and make it right with complimentary salads and a couple of free drinks, but with hungry kids, it was a LONG wait. When food came out it was either room temperature or wilted due to being under a warming lamp for too long. A really tough day for Matchbox.

    Slow service for not being busy. It was obvious out food day in the window under heat lamps for quite a while. Fries like warm. Top of bun hot and crispy. Food runner didn't care. Manager never followed up.

    Food was good. Price was on the higher side. Service challenged due to staff shortage at 6-8pm on a Friday before getting busier. Overall? It’s good. But it has a limited menu and could be worse. Or better

    We went to Matchbox to celebrate our children’s accomplishments this school year. Unfortunately, due to the ceremony going into the night we had to make a later than usual reservation during a weeknight. We arrived 1 hour prior to closing with a reservation in hand knowing what we were demanding of the staff even as a party of 6. There were a few parties seated throughout the restaurant but by that time it was pretty empty. We were seated immediately and were assigned Christian as our server. He was extremely professional and his service was top notch. We might as well have been there at peak time on Friday night because he did not skip a beat. I was not sure how the night would go but he attended to our every request. He offered apps, stayed on top of beverages, inquired of our food and even offered dessert. All of this knowing it was closing time. Not once were we forced out or rushed by any of the staff. We made sure not to take advantage of the situation by acting as if we could be there as long as we wanted. The food was delicious as always, but easily outshined by the customer service. It can be difficult walking into an establishment and witness immediately an employee sigh at the sight of a customer. Thank you Matchbox for your hospitality and allowing us to spoil our 2 children with their grandparents alongside them. Job well done! We’ll be back!

    Decent food. The pizza is a mainstay here and ours was very good. The rest of the food was above average as well. The service was terrible. Server never came by. In fact, when I got up 20 minutes after ordering to see where she was I could not find her at all. Then the appetizer and the main dishes all came at the same time. No apologies even though we specifically asked for the pizza in advance. Not sure I would return it was that bad.

    I had the chicken pesto and pepperoni pizza and it was absolutely delicious. I love that it was light on my stomach and not greasy. My friend got her usual which was the chicken sandwich and she enjoyed it as well. I also enjoyed the mocktail margarita and I’m glad they have those options for those who aren’t drinking.

    I understand that it was easter sunday so it was very busy. We were able to get seated relatively quickly despite the size of our party. Drinks took quite some time - about 30 minutes. The appetizers came out pretty good after that however the tempura shrimp were very very very oily. The meals were presented about 30-40 minutes later and they were okay(ish). Having eatten there before, we knew what to expect and the churrasco brunch item was not prepared well and the server/host who brought it out was not kind when my husband disputed the dish. He was actually combative with him. This is a no-no in a restaurant - or at least it should be. Overall, it was okay. My sister who was celebrating her birthday was not at all pleased. Our waitress Kayla was great however and did the best she could. Not sure i will visit again. Will take my $800 bill total elsewhere. Sorry Matchbox.

    Went here for Easter brunch. Arrived at 11:45am. It wasn’t too busy but as we were finishing up our meal around 1pm, a line had started to form outside for people waiting for a table. The food was great and I feel the starter plus a main for $30 is a reasonable price for brunch. I will definitely return. The service wasn’t the greatest but it was a holiday so I understand that may be why.

    We were seated quickly because we had reservations. They took our order. Then our appetizer, the spinach and artichoke dip came to our table the bowl was warm and the dip was cold. We never had refills on our drinks I even had to go to the bar to get a refill on my son’s soda because our waitress disappeared. Another waitress came filled our waters and said let me check on your pizza she brought it out immediately. 5 minutes later our waitress appeared asking if we needed anything but the other waitress had already helped us. It was very frustrating. The food was delicious though as usual.

    Usually we love this restaurant and give it 5 stars. However, our experience on 4-6-22 at 5-6pm was just ok 3 stars. All our food came out at once and it was all at room temperature, disappointing! At least it still tasted good. The server was not personable at all, and the restaurant only had a few people in it at the time, so no excuse for the service and temperature of the food we received.

    Table of 6 arrived at 545. Didn’t get drinks until 630 since they said there was a large party that had the bar slammed. Our food items came out separately and a bunch of the items we ordered never arrived. It was a mess. I’ve been to this location probably four times in the past and every time I go something does not go right. I keep trying because I actually do like the food and the location is nice. It’s a shame they have such horrible managers that allow the service or pace of food to leave us disappointed every time. We agreed that after this last debacle, we will not be returning.

    Decent food and value. Food came out timely and hot. However, the biggest problem was the bar service. We set it on our table with literally nothing in front of us for a half an hour after we ordered our first round of drinks. We ordered our second round with our food. Our food arrived before the second round. We’re not ordering complicated drinks. Beer and wine mainly. The bar was maybe 20% full in the restaurant maybe 30% full. Just simply no excuse for not being able to get out drinks.

    Bartender didn't know how to make specialty drink. Restaurant didn't have ingredients to make one of their specialty pizzas. Chimichurri steak was fatty, hard to eat, and tasteless (even with the sauce). Fries were soggy and tasteless. Worst food I've had in a restaurant in years.

    We sat down for a while. At least 5 servers walked by our table multiple times, made eye contact and said nothing. After a while we finally got up and walked out. On our way out, one of the servers that had walked by a few times said "nobody greeted you or came by your table, I'm sorry!" As we walked out. This is the third bad experience I had with my family at this restaurant. I went a few weeks ago with girlfriends for brunch and had great service so decided to bring my family back to try again and was so disappointed. We will never be back again.
