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.
Put up outside upstairs, where it was windy and we got soaked by rain.. multiple tables downstairs outside were open
Obviously understaffed.. on Mother’s Day..
unacceptable... last time at this restaurant
Great brunch choices along with “mom mosa’s”. Was there for Mother’s Day. Red rose was a nice touch.
Wonderful service, went for Mother’s Day brunch and management handed out a rose to all the mothers. Cool atmosphere, great food, will definitely come back.
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.
Great service! Food was good, drinks a little weak but salmon was very small portion for $27!
Great drinks, great food, great service!
Gustavo is the best!!
Service was very slow. No refills. Had to ask for everything. Waited 15 min after reservation. Felt like we were put in a corner and forgotten about.
George was a great waiter. Food is “nothing special”, but was a great central meeting place fir a small get together.
Expensive wine menu
Very slow service. No explanation of menu when we asked.
Good food and great service
Enjoyed pizza and a cocktail. Staff was inviting and friendly.
Such incredible service from the whole Matchbox team!
The fire pit was a little warm as we were seated near it in the airy, covered patio. Our server promptly allayed our concern and said he’d turn it off if we became too warm, as he “didn’t want his customers to be uncomfortable”. Wow! Our food was served promptly and everyone enjoyed it. I had the miso salmon with asparagus which was delicious but the veggies were not hot and the sauce had an oddly grayish tone despite tasting good.
Another gentleman who was opening the screens near our table quickly complied with our request to turn down the music.
The sound improved within minutes and we were pleasantly surprised again at the top notch customer service.
It was a great dinner with exceptional service!
I've walked by the restaurant many times on my ways to the shops. Today, we wanted to have an Easter Meal with the family before shopping. The meal was beyond my expectations. Everything was freshly prepared and had superb taste. I definitely frequent this restaurant in the future.
Everything was great! I went in with my daughter after the Disney on Ice show and our server (Scott I think) was super nice. Our food tasted absolutely amazing. We had the minestrone soup and spinach dip to start and then the chimichurri steak and frites and kids pizza for dinner which was all excellent and then shared the doughnuts. We’ll definitely be returning soon.
This is a nice casual place, wish brunch menu had more options, bottomlesss mimosa were great! Pizza was nice thin crispy flavor filled. Service was excellent.
Made a reservation at this place for 6:45 arrived on time and was told by the hostess to wait a couple mins until they clean a table for us... mind you this place had many opened tables. We sat on the inside waiting area and several minutes and several patrons came in and were sat (some of whom DID NOT have reservations because I heard them tell the hostess that. We actually had to walk back up to a new host after waiting for about 20 mins total and asked if our reservation was still being honored. I mentioned that I notice people were sat before us, the hostess apologized (didn’t seem genuine) and I just had to walk out! Will never visit again. Unacceptable!
Very nice! It was not too crowded and health considerations were respected! Also, food and service were excellent!!
The restaurant was CLOSED. I went to the place and found it out
The meal was excellent! I dined with my family, and we each enjoyed our meal. The special for the day was the Cajun Ribeye with roasted potatoes and it was exceptionally delicious and cooked perfectly. I recommend that it remains on the menu as a permanent meal selection. We also enjoyed eating the ribs and the half chicken with the couscous. We will definitely return to this restaurant.
Delish and wonderful service. 💙
Ahi tacos were not as good quality tuna as before and swimming in sirracha Mayo.
Two of us ordered a signature cocktail and it was so weak I honestly didn’t believe alcohol was included! My crispy chicken was really good, but the skirt steak was too chewy and too over seasoned. All you could taste was the cumin. Our waiter was great. Sitting outside was fun and nice.
Very helpful staff. The food was very good. The waiter was very helpful and described the food perfectly. Couldn't ask for better.
Overall a good experience.
Great!! Light on top of table is wayyyy to bright!
Service was superb and waiter was engaged with his guests.
Waiter was the bartender! Didn’t get good service. I ordered the chicken...initially it came out horrible! Chicken was dry, no sauce,substance...nothing! Waiter fixed issue and bought out a much better plate. Extremely disappointed with experience!
Every time we go service is so slow
Nice restaurant but limited menu options. Good ambiance, excellent service
It was ok, nothing great. It was ok, nothing great.
Emily wasn’t a good server. Sat and waited for about 10 minutes before anyone came and spoke to me I had to have another server get my actual server. She barley came by when my food came out to see if I needed anything else. Bad service
Danny was a great server and James the manager was attentive unfortunately the kitchen messed up both orders and the wait for the food to arrive was unacceptable. We were first told that our pizza burned and had to be remade then our salad arrived with the chicken undercooked. The manager made up for the kitchen's error and the server was very apologetic (Clearly not his fault) however it is unfortunate that for the last few times we dined here, the kitchen has had problems.
Fast service, good food, nice ambiance, parking may be difficult due to being in a busy shopping area
Prices have increased substantially. The food is good but a lot of my favorites (Fig and Prosciutto Pizza!!) are gone. The kale and brussels salad was just 'ok'. My Husband's chicken sandwich came out so insanely burnt he couldn't even cut through it. The server and GM were wonderful and made him a new one and it was delicious and also gave him a free drink to compensate. We sat outside near the firepit and heaters as it was actually really chilly. Great atmosphere.
Nice social distanced tables all staff with masks
