Matchbox - Merrifield
It's Matchbox. What more do I need to say. It's the only pizza I eat. It's a destination for deliciousness.
This was a Father's Day afternoon lunch. We were seated in a separate room with beautiful lighting and a very quiet ambience. Our waiter was prompt, thoughtful, and very considerate of our needs. A great setting for a family get-together and a top notch experience!
Dined there on Father's Day, 16 Jun 19 with a reservation. We were seated 35 minutes after our 1:15 PM reservation time. As we waited, a manager came to the hostess and said, "86 the brunch. We're getting killed." Upon inquiring it was determined that meant the brunch was ended at 1:30 PM instead of 3 PM. It was the brunch menu that attracted us. We stayed simply because it would have been difficult to find another establishment at that point. Food: Crab soup was excellent. My wife informed the server and management the calamari was the worst she'd ever tasted. I tasted her pizza and found that Ledo's Pizza was much better. I had the ribs, which wasn't all that. We visited on a strong recommendation and was very disappointed.
Sunday brunch was pretty disappointing. They seemed overwhelmed, and service was apologetic, but slow. As a result, it took forever to get food, orders were wrong, and with the long lags between ordering and receiving food it made for a poor value. We would not go back again.
Great food and service
Great food. Had unlimited brunch.
A bit pricey but fun for Fathers day celebration.
Great unlimited brunch special. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Food was great. Would definitely come back.
we loved the new lobster pizza !
Always very happy with Matchbox.
It was our first time at matchbox, we had a lovely evening. The food was great, especially the ceviche tacos appetizer which we all loved! We were there with our six year old and nineteen year old - it’s a challenge to please all generations in one evening, we definitely hit a home run tonight! The service was stellar as well as the food and ambiance, what more could you ask for?
This restaurant has a nice menu, good food, but it is a bit loud for our tastes.
Great service food is always good . Always a bit pricey
They completely messed up our order. They did fix it and they completely owned up to making the mistake and comp’d the food so I guess the customer service made up for the extra time we had to wait. The manager was amazing!
We were able to get outside seating which we really enjoyed. Our waiter was Steven and he was excellent! Always love the food. Hubby had the Chicken Sandwich and it was very delicious. Always love their Fig pizza as well as the Fire one.
Excellent variety on the unlimited brunch menu. The $3 brunch cocktails are a nice added touch. We tried a large portion of the brunch menu items and everything looked great and was amazingly delicious. Even though the chicken and grits and shrimp and grits were a bit runny, they were still flavorful and delicious. Definitely check out the unlimited brunch menu, you won't be disappointed.
Best meal we had at Mosaic
Food has been better but was still really good. It’s kind of dark in the place so that’s depressing. The server was really nice and attentive. He was a little slow to refill drinks but it was a busy weekend. Overall great experience. Would def. recommend.
We went for brunch for the first time at matchbox and it was delicious!! Great food and drinks. Would definitely go again and recommend.
I ordered gluten free and half white and it came not gluten free with only ricotta. The server was great but the experience was disappointing.
This time we (husband and myself) were there at happy hour and shared 3 items: sliders, shrimp and grits and spicy meatballs. Everything was delicious and the mojitos were a hit. We sat at a bar hightop table and Brian was our server. He was perfect!! I've waited on tables in restaurants before, so I appreciate a great server when I see one. Brian is one of the best!
We had a party of 6 and with a reservation were able to be seated immediately. The place was pretty packed on a Wednesday evening and had live music. I wasn’t too impressed with the menu even the new items. Everyone seemed to enjoy their food and have a good time so that’s all that matters. In terms of price, I paid about $50 for a personal pizza and two drinks.
Great food and service. Very accommodating. Recommend highly
This was our first time trying the brunch and it was really good and our server was awesome
Enjoyed the meal, and appreciated the service even more. Staff made sure we were well taken care of. Thank you!
Excellent pizza. Decent service. Deafeningly loud on a Friday night.
Great atmosphere excellent service and great food. We be back.
Normally a reliable option, Matchbox was completely overwhelmed on Mother’s Day. One entree showed up an hour after we sat down. They were very gracious and took the entree off the bill and offered free desserts.
Great restaurant for a celebration dinner, good variety of menu options
Many people were waiting for tables at Matchbox when we arrived, but we were seated immediately with our OpenTable reservation. Favs - sliders (and the delicious onion strings on top!), margarita pizza was perfect, and all pairs so well with their tasty beers (tons to choose from). Don't forget to get an actual matchbox when you leave!
I had an amazing tuna tartare and gluten free pesto pizza. Both very tasty. Highly recommend it.
Amazing. First time doing an all u can eat brunch!! My wife and I loved it. An amazing Mother’s Day experience
We enjoyed the Mother’s Day brunch. Servers are very friendly and helpful.
Came in for dinner with a short notice reservation. I arrived a bit early for our reservation time, expecting to wait a little but the hosts got us sat immediately. Chase was our server and he was very attentive, nice, and funny. Would come back for him for sure. We got an appetizer that came very quickly along with a cheese pizza. It was great, food was hot and all the presets were there so we could dig in! Very happy with the whole experience!
It was our first time at Matchbox, and we were very pleased. The food and service were excellent. It was a little loud, so if you are looking for a quiet, intimate dinner, maybe go on a week night instead of a weekend.
Matchbox used to be good, but the last time we went, our waiter was not good (he took our order, but that was about it) and the food was less than stellar. The waiter “forgot” about our table; ended up having a manager deliver our meals. Our steaks were cool to the touch and over cooked, the pears on my salad were brown, and our cheese-only pizza was spicy.
We've eaten at Matchbox many times. The food is generally good. We had a slightly larger group which included four kids for an early dinner this past Saturday. We had reservations and got seated immediately, even with half our group missing, which was great! Initially, things started out well, we got our drinks and appetizers quickly. But the service went downhill from there. Our waiter never once came back to check for refills or additional drinks, one meal came back incorrect and we had to flag down other waiters several times just to get anything. Other meals were fine, although what was called a "side salad" was anything but. It could have easily been a meal on it's own. Not typical from our usual experience there, but frustrating.
Noise level a bit high but otherwise great service
Poor service, food was terrible and the noise level was outrageous for a Tuesday.
Consistent food quality
Sat outside and enjoyed a wonderful happy hour menu.
Service was off and on. Even though I ordered an item off the happy hour menu well before the end of happy hour, I was charged full price. Not once but twice.
It was corrected but should've been correct in the first place.
We really like going to Matchbox before a movie and have never had any issues with service, except this last time. Restaurant wasn't very busy, but we ended up waiting for a while to order. Appetizer came quickly - yay! Main meals took forever - which is not like Matchbox. It was almost 35 minutes after the one 1 appetizer came out before our main meal. Anyway... it was fine, just the attention of the server and the service was a little off this evening.
