“Tough location for restaurants for some reason”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

This location seems to be tough on restaurants. There have been a number of different ones at this location over the years. Don't really know why they don't last for more than a couple of years each. Matchbox is at least the forth different restaurant at this shopping center that I can recall. Seems they are doing a decent business. Went on a Thursday night and there was a good crowd. The food was very good and the service was courteous, helpful, and good as well. They have a good variety of food from pizzas to ribeyes. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Will have to see if this restaurant outlasts the others.

“wonderful food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

the food here was really great, very creative dishes. the atmosphere is good and the quality of service is good. the only disadvantage to this place i find, is the wait - you can easily wait for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes if you don't make a reservation. so book before you go!

“Met expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The pizza was good. The service was good considering I was eating at the pizza bar. They have a nice, though not extensive, selection of draft beers. The brownie dessert was just okay.

“Great place to wind down after a long week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

My son lives in Rockville and every time we go over we end up at a sports bar. Hate the place, But this trip we went to MATCHBOX and waht a great place to eat. Yes it gorment Pizza but they have other things, My son ordered Cuban sandwich which he claimed was the best and the chips that came with his sandwich we different and great. I and my wife ordered a pizza with peperoni and there was not a spot on the pizza that was not covered with little round pices of meat, and the crispy crust wasa waht we like, We will be back to enjoy the great treatment from the wait staff and the excellent food

“Food needs to improve to that of the ambiance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

This is a very interesting, if not cool, restaurant. They have nice seating options that make the dinning experience interesting almost no matter where you sit. However, the food (I got a pizza) was fair and service was slow. If I go again, it would only be for the available seating and convenience to my location.
