One of my favorite restaurants, the Matchbox is almost always crowded. Great food, most of the staff is wonderful, and their drinks are good. Can be noisy so go early.

They're there. Lots of choices in the menu. Pizza is hit or miss (it comes out overdone sometimes). What's pretty consistent is their 369 sliders topped with onion straws. My husband used to enjoy the Trio which isn't available any longer. Wish they would bring that back. We also loved the donuts for dessert but that's removed from the menu... More

My family found the restaurant quite nice, including a good pizza, good service and a modern and comfortable decor and environment. We had a late lunch there and left just as the evening at the bar was just getting underway, so we were not there at crunch time on a Friday. Nonetheless, a very nice meal and all-around nice experience.... More

My friends say the beef sliders were of quality beef. They loved them. I had the crab/avocado tower, the calamari, the creme of crab soup, and the rigatoni. The soup was seasoned perfectly and made me feel calm and relaxed. The calamari was tender and well seasoned. The rigatoni was a bit spicy for me, but the pasta was cooked... More

The only reason this place is getting two and not one stars is because the pizzas we had were good. It all comes down to service. We were there on a Saturday afternoon around 2:00. It was busy, but not full. The upstairs had no one there. We were seated and greeted by our server (Maria I think) and all... More

Sunday lunch was delicious; crab/avocado appetizer and a meatball grinder. Everything home made and fresh. A bit pricey but a really lovely atmosphere; it felt like a special occasion and not just lunch.

Matchbox is a great place for groups that don't always like the same food. Great beer and cocktails, a diverse salad menu, popular pizzas, good meat and fish. Yummy desserts. Good size servings. This is one of our go to places. You can always find something good to eat or drink! It gets crowded, but the waits aren't terrible.

We hadn't been here for a while. Came for a weekday lunch, but still needed a reservation! Good salads and pizza. Emmanuel was a very personable server.

Have been to Matchbox many times over the years...I'm not a huge fan of their pizza but their sliders are amazing!!! With a huge pile of onion straws on top. Soooo good. This visit I had the crispy half chicken with asparagus and mashed potatoes and everything was cooked just right. Really good meal!!! :-)
