Huncho House was amazing. We will go again, soon. Di was exceptional. She greeted us and checked on us during our service. Sidne was our server. Sh offer several menu suggestions, and they were on point. Hunch House is top notch!. All the food was seasoned to perfection! I had the Hawaiian ribeye steak. It was one of the best steaks i have had this year. My husband had the red snapper. Once it was placed in front of him, he couldn't stop eating it. We also had the mocked cocktail, and they were dope! Mac crab and cheese? Dope! The service is dope! Huncho House is that restaurant!

The atmosphere, view, and service was beyond beautiful. The food was exquisite. Most notable was our attentive, warm, and friendly waitress, Anna. She checked in on us regularly, suggested a sommelier who was very informative, as well as made our 25th wedding anniversary and birthday celebration memorable with desserts and champagne and genuine kindness. Anna is truly great at her job - the right balance of friendliness and professionalism. It takes a team to make dining an experience but a waitress or waiter often makes individual customers want to return. I not only return but would hope I could request Anna as our waitress again. Thank you, Anna, for going above and beyond!!!

About the restaurant
Our restaurant's atmosphere is what we would call casual elegance. On our main floor, we have a full dining room, bar, and we call this our "wine bar". The wine bar also has front porch and back patio seating as well. Our wine list has over 100 wines from various regions. We offer multiple bottled wines and a phenomenal selection by the glass as well. Our basement, or as we all know it the pub, has 12 beers on draft, an extensive liquor selection, and a very inviting and comforting atmosphere. Both floors offer the same supper menu, with the exception of the happy hour menu. That is only served in the pub Tuesday-Friday from 4-6. Our third floor is used for overflow seating and private events. Our motto is that when you're here, you're home, and we strive to meet that with every guest. Come in and enjoy a beautiful, local, farm to table meal. We'd love to have you!

Bubbling, thin crust pizzas, mini burgers, crisp salads, and craft cocktails...four great reasons to visit matchbox today. We’re Ashburn's neighborhood gathering place for fun, upscale casual dining, with local, award-winning beers, broad spectrum wines, and handcrafted signature cocktails you won’t find anywhere else.

New at matchbox: brunch bundles. Think: classic shareables and brunch favorites like crab cake eggs benedict or chimichurri steak + eggs, along with bottomless mimosas.

In the heart of Loudoun County is our dining oasis with two light-filled levels--each with shaded outdoor patios for great people-watching. This spacious location has indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate all event needs. The private Barrel Room accommodates 55 guests and comes with comfortable seating, a wood-burning fireplace and private wine coolers to store your favorite vintages.

The matchbox bill overcharged us $10 for an item (2 orders of chicken & waffles). The menu shows $22/entree. The register rang it as $27. I pointed out the error, and we had to wait around for it to be fixed. No manager ever came to apologize and all they did was credit $10 - the amount it should have been without their incorrect pricing . No effort was made to fix it in the system so I suspect they are continuing to overcharge everyone else

Paul, our waiter, was very good - he was attentive without being overbearing and kept our water filled and asked periodically how we were doing. The food was very good - the three of us shared an appetizer and each had an entree. Our daughter would have preferred dessert too, but her parents were too full. We went at 3:00 on a Sunday which is our usual time for a Sunday meal - restaurants tend to not be crowded from lunch or dinner. It was a great experience.
