“Nice place, Awesome Atmosophere!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

I have eaten here twice in the last five months; the food is great, the place is magnificent. It is worth checking out. I had a sandwich the first time I ate here and the most recent time I tried the pizza, which was great. They have a wood-fired oven. Inside the restaurant it is super cool; two floors, nice bar (great for happy hours, they can accommodate large groups), nice outside area that is open year-round. When I ate there the first time I sat outside for lunch- it was still warm out so very nice indeed. I recommend using open table to book a reservation for the weekend nights- it gets busy there.

“Loved this pizza!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Some might say its a bit greasy, but me and my crowd love it!
Yummy cheese and toppings and just the right amount of sauce.
Good place to drop by after work for a drink and a pizza to share with friends.
Nice outdoor patio for the warm days too.

“Good Atmospshere - Nice outdoor seating”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is a great place for a group of friends or colleagues. Lots of different areas to have a meal including the bar area and it has a large outdoor fireplace that is encircled by a bar for a great outdoor experience on a cool evening. Pizza is top dog but on a tip from the concierge at the Hilton across the street I had the crabcake sandwich and it was fantastic. Lots of local beers on tap as well and the bar is a good place to watch a game. Note that is is located within easy walking distance of the Twinbrook Metro station.

“Quality all around you”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

From the decor, to the welcome, to the staff and of course the food - Matchbox in Rockville delivers. This was my colleague's 2nd time there but it was their raving that made me suggest it when we were deciding where to dine. Matchbox delivered on the endorsement.

Smartly decorated, different and inviting. You can tell they want to have 'staying power' in this particular location which has seen many businesses come and go. Their priority is to give you a stellar experience from beginning to end. Mission accomplished!

Oh, by the way, GREAT FOOD! Go NOW, you won't regret it!

“A Decent pizza”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Hard to believe that good thin crust pizza is not easy to find in the DC area. There is the Matchbox, a sprawling cavernous place with an eclectic grill-type menu with a slew of pizza offerings cooked in a wood fire oven. We tried the sausage/onion pizza, loved the charred crust, excellent ingredients, well balanced salty/spice. Not an easy place to converse in with no sound dampening, just bare walls and floor but good service and decent food are worth the visit.
