I enjoyed everything. The food, the service and the atmosphere.
👍🏻👍🏻 good experience
The food was just ok. The bar ran out of tonic on a Friday night and still tried to serve us the cocktails we ordered that we're supposed to include tonic. Asked to have wine with entree but it didn't arrive until after we finished. Very disappointed overall.
Service was slow, while we were waiting the service staff was chatting in the middle of the dinning. The space is nice but service was terrible. Even ti oat I got get up and request sone to take my payment.
We had a great time. Girls get together after work. The food was tasty and the drinks were good. A very convenient location after work. We will definitely be back.
Incredible customers service. The sliders are super delicious. Cosmopolitan was not wonderful. Overall was a nice experience
The food choices for happy hour were great! Good food and good prices.
Service was inconsistent. First, the server was very attendant, then didn't see him for awhile, then our order was messed up, then didn't see the server again and had to grab another server to get our bill. Didn't look that busy, so don't know what the disconnect was.
Our server, Rodrigo, was fantastic! Keeping a group of 16 happy isn't easy, but he did a great job. The food was tasty and hot. Being upstairs, it was easy to have conversations, and everyone had a good time. We appreciated the variety of foods on the menu and the accommodations your chef made for our people with special requests. Thanks for providing a great place for our large group to have dinner!
A monthly experience for my team. This time was great once service started however, we sat for 15 minutes waiting oon someone to show up.
Been here several time for business and pleasure. Tonight was no different, great experience!
Matchbox was great as always. Our server AJ always aims to please!!!!!!
Went to Matchbox based on previous reviews for a business dinner. Food was excellent and service was as well. Great location near shops and metro so completely accessible.
Made reservation but still had to wait about 10 minutes for our table. We were seated upstairs. Waitress came with menus in a timely fashion, took our drink and dinner order. Never checked on by waitress to refill water or just to see how we were doing... Pizzas were brought by someone else, had to ask for napkins and silverware.. again, not checked on by waitress... finally she brought the bill.. had to ask for dessert menu. Ordered dessert and given the bill at the same time.. Food was great! Service was terrible..
My friends and I went here together and we loved it! We all like very different foods but we all found something that we loved. The environment was peaceful and nice. We will all be returning!
Birthday Dinner. Food was good. Service a little slow
Pizza is always fantastic. Matchbox's own wine is great.
Great food, great service, nice large booth for our big group
My cousin was in from out of town and had never been to Matchbox so i had her meet me there after her workshop for dinner and she loved it. She really enjoyed the Apple/Pear Salad and her pizza. I had the Shrimp and grits and let her taste it and she loved it. We talked for quite a while and we weren’t urged to leave by the staff even though it was close to closing, and we totally appreciated it be able we hadn’t seen each other in about a year or two. The waitress was great , although we had to ask her one time to refill our water. Other than she was pleasant, patient, and accommodating. Great place to eat and a wonderfully pleasant staff!!
It took a couple of hours, but we got three courses and cocktails on a busy night. Food was amazing, price was great. Had to rush the waiter along a bit.
Been my 1st time to Matchbox , I was very please. Only thing I kinda did not like is that the waiter was to pleasing when one of the guest ask if she you could changed her kids order, because wasn't told they had a children menu and he kinda took a deep breath like she was making him messed up his order. Not happy about that , BUT I will be back soon with another gathering in the coming weeks.
Service was sub-par. Had to repeatedly ask for the same things more than twice (water, silverware, to-go box). Was not that busy, so I don't know what the "excuse" is.
It took a full hour to get a drink order correct (for one drink). Some food ordered was never served, a pizza order didn't quite make it in correctly. Food itself was very good, though.
The service was great but it took a long time for me to receive my food. It was very fresh.
The food was very good and the location is great, right in the mall with ample parking.
Great pizza and good cocktails - recommend the southern charmer.
I booked a table for 14 —thinking it would be somewhat flexible. At first they said they required half the party to seat us, whic would have left us standing for some time. Luckily, after another request, they “allowed” us to sit, when we immediately ordered drinks. The service was fine for a table that large—no complaints after the delayed start. My fav is the margarita pizza—the thin crust for all their pies reminds me of NJ and NYC pizza—it’s fine, I suddenly find it finished...
I love Matchbox. However this location leaves much to be desired. Compared to other locations the service at this location is consistently sub par. As busy as the location is, they always feel short staffed. I feel that since it’s in a naturally busy location they are not as attentive as a normal restaurant. The location keeps people coming in so the service can be lacking. It’s pretty disappointing. This hasn’t been an isolated event. It’s basically every time we eat here, busy or not the staff has not impressed.
We ate here as a group of 7 on NYE. We were seated in a corner booth and it was FREEZING! We all had to eat with our jackets on and could not feel our toes by the end of dinner it was so cold. Service was extremely slow because they were understaffed due to the holiday. The waitress did her best but she constantly left the table quickly after answering one person’s question or taking a person’s order leaving the rest of the table to wait. The food was fine, but the mains came out immediately after we got the appetizers not giving us time to enjoy them. I would try the place again, but not on a holiday.
Excellent all around! Service was outstanding even though he was busy. The food was fantastic! Fresh ingredients and great service makes such a difference. Will definitely recommend to our Arlington friends/ family.
Matchbox is always a guaranteed crowd pleaser except that it was so cold in the restaurant that no one enjoyed the meal
Fabulous! Very good food and atmosphere!
Very good service. Great location and I find the ambiance appealing. I ordered the chicken cobb salad which was nicely done and a perfect lunch portion. I will return.
The food was good. Location is convenient if you are going to the mall. The service was okay. The server was reasonably polite, but it didn’t knock my socks off. The food runner got a bit lost. The food was delicious. I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit, but it’s worth it if you are going to the mall anyway.
The restaurant was quiet on a busy night at Pentagon City. The server was attentive and friendly. The app's were quite good. The Caesar kale salad was the only disappointment and the house salad did not taste dressed. Otherwise a nice meal in a nice place with a bit of a city view. Perfect for a shopping break or waiting for someone to arrive at Regan.
It was a large group, 12, and the food arrived within a timely manner and was hot. Also, the food was very tasty no overpowering of one spice. The noise was high pitched, which meant one had to speak loudly while having a conversation.
Friday night friend get together- reservations helped us get seated immediately. Waitress attentive and upfront explained how different upstairs/downstairs kitchen may cause foods to come out at differing times. Nice modern ambiance. Ladies room stall out of service so used Family restroom. Clean. Lots of tvs around. Far enough from others in spacious booth but music so loud had to raise voice all night. Calimari good and meat on French Dip but bread was lacking, so not sure worth money spent. Would go again.
Noisy and expensive for the types of food that is served. Not reccomended for lunch where you want to have a conversation-music was too loud!
