Matchbox - Rockville
New at matchbox: brunchbox, our new unlimited brunch with small plates and drinks. Think: an endless selection of dishes like our avocado toast, breakfast nachos, chicken + grits and, of course, any of our small pizzas
A titan of a space, Rockville was modeled after a hunting lodge yet still manages to feel cozy.
A comfortable fireplace fills the space, as well as two wood-fired ovens that churn out thin-crust pizzas in minutes. With two outdoor patios and the private 30-seat Congressional Room, there’s plenty of space for intimate dinners, large parties and get-togethers.
crushed red pepper, mozzarella, bacon, roasted garlic
diced tomatoes, basil, mozz, arugula
The service was excellent, as were most of the dishes we had. The spaghetti with a big meatball was strange. It had alfredo sauce on it with just a little marinara. I would not gmhave ordered this dish if I knew about the alfredo sauce. The blueberry french toast was delicious, as was the shirt rib rigatonu.
Very nice atmosphere and the food was delicious! Highly recommend.
Our waitress was amazing! Our food came out in a timely manner and was all correct and delicious.
Brunch was a great deal and our server Stephanie was fantastic!
Great food great service. We will come back again .
the service is above average and the food varies from good to fair. Their pizza is very good and the baby back ribs are also very good. My pasta dish was fair.
The noise level is high and they play the same sound track over and over.
We order some small burgers With a mozzarella cheese and they add American cheese
service was very slow
Food was great. Service could be better. Waited over 20 minutes despite having a reservation. Our server was less than competent. Actually he was terrible
dinner was great. and most importantly, our waitress really listened to some of our dietary restrictions and requests. food was good and a fun time was had by all.
Very slow service tonight and not at all busy.
Again surprisingly pleased with all of our food, from the giant meatball to the salmon salads with an excellent dressing, to the chicken sandwiches. The service was excellent. Her and fruit drinks are competitively priced. My only complaint is that the price of bottled wines is way over inflated.
Brunch small plates were good but seemed pricey at $31. I guess $3 mimosa makes unlimited food brunch and 2 drinks for under $40 ok but I wasn’t drinking. My issue was the waiter was one of the most unhelpful servers. We asked about the small plates - he proceeded no extras into. We asked if we could do a la carte - he said probably fir some items and then walked away giving no info. He cane back we asked again and he said all could be done ala carte “probably “. Then didn’t give prices or say if it Gould be full size not small plate.
Rest was decent we did small plates brunch and it was filling and interesting but service really turned us off.
service was awful and food was cold. the server did not share information and it was hard to figure out what the brunch was about.
The Chicken Alfredo was really good and the salmon was cooked to my liking. The server was quite friendly and efficient. The amount of food is a little less than average I think but not a deal breaker. Will definitely be back!
always family friendly and great service!
Sat in strange little knook next to the fireplace. It was uncomfortable and ackward.
Only go to this restaurant if you have children with you. They are everywhere and the ambiance is more of a McDonalds play area.
A great evening with friends at Matchbox in Rockville. The food was delicious - pizza, pasta and salad!
Great Brunch package! Fried Risotto was so good! Sliders are also recommended.
I was looking for a place to take my family for a brunch and was not impressed with our experience Sunday. the restaurant was almost empty and our service was very poor, the food was just ok and honestly we were disappointed. I spoke to the manager after we waited 15 m in to pay our bill and he did take a little off to make things better.
I wondered if they had a new chef because we have been there before and not felt this way.
I would not recommend the brunch.
The food was bad. Just BAD. The breading kept falling off the calamari. The fettuccini was super heavy and ended up making my husband's stomach sick. The steak salad was literally 4-5 pieces of steak thrown on some lettuce. And, although our server was wonderfully friendly, he disappeared towards the end such that it took us forever to get our bill. Oh! And, despite our reservation, it took us (and the 12 others who were freezing in the waiting area with us) nearly 20 mins to get seated. Never again.
I love it here! Good food, clean and great waiters.
My wife’s chicken came out dry and had to be sent back. Overall it was a good experience but that put a damper on the experience.
We enjoyed a pre-valentines day lunch at this restaurant and enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent, and the food was good. We shared a pizza, and it was delicious as well as the craft beers. I will return to this restaurant again.
I enjoyed my meal, the service was outstanding....our server 452/Talmadge was one of the best ever...knowledgeable, very attentive and pleasant...he responded promptly to every request...even my request for not too sweet lemonade.
Food was delicious the salads are always great. The pizza is delicious.
They were out of Baileys and Kahlua. We stopped in late night for dessert and coffee. One of our party had the spaghetti and meatball. The sauces were bland and the meatball was mushy.
Matchbox is a great place to take your family and friends. The menu has a variety of items. My wife and went with another couple. We had pizza and and a steak. The pizza was amazing and the steak was cooked perfect. The waiter paced the meal perfect and was not over bearing. I would come back again .
Great variety and good value, though if you have younger children, you will not likely get $17.50 (kids price) worth of food consumed by them unless they are big eaters or like seafood etc. It balances out in the end, however, and the options are sufficiently vast.
Service was great. Sergio was attentive and accommodating. We will be back.
Best ribs in town! And their pizza's are great. Had a lovely time
The food we ordered (shrimp and grits, crab cakes, pizza) was tasty. Our waitstaff was friendly and thoughtful -- she brought pizza dough for the 7-year and 5-year olds st our table to play with! I have been eating at this Matchbox location for a while now, and it's been consistent in both food quality and service.
Loved the beyond pizza !!!
I would say I’ve had very mixed experiences at Matchbox. Generally the front reception staff is indifferent. Sometimes the wait staff is great and other times it has been terrible. Same with the food. The sale portions have gotten smaller.
It’s not my first choice for lunch or dinner.
The cost of my chicken sandwich seemed kind of high.
Great food and service but very noisy
Birthday dinner. Service was wonderful! We had a great attentive server. Made my birthday very enjoyable!
Waitress forgot to serve part of our food. Had to go remind her.
We had a great time, your big round table was perfect for our party of 8. Perfect casual spot with awesome food and upbeat vibe.
