Matchbox - One Loudoun
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
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.
Always a favorite! We visited during COVID-19 and found a clean restaurant.
Food was very good. First table they showed us had a cold blast directed down onto the table. Very uncomfortable so we asked to be moved (it made me recall a similar experience last time we ate there!). Only table available was in bar area which was very loud - but it is a bar! Server came quickly and took our drink order which came a bit slowly considering we were in the bar and had a couple of draft beers. Then it took quite a bit of time for server to return to take our dinner order. Food came out fast. We would return but wait until spring/summer as I think the heat system actually creates a number of spots on tables where you feel you are sitting in a draft. Not pleasant.
Great food, excellent service and fun atmosphere! Can’t wait to go back.
Our meals were great as always. So happy to see the ginormous meatball incorporated into an entree. It was DELICIOUS!
Great food. Terrible service if you are seated in the bar area.
Brunch was amazing ! Our waitress superb !! Went with the 31.50 brunch all you can eat menu and everything was a HIT ! Huge fan of chicken and waffles and that Deff did hit the spot !!!! I’m going back for sure !!!!!! Oh and the MIMOSAS - nothing beats such a good brunch with those 3$ mimosas! And they are pretty generous with the champagne proportions !
Our server Eric was very personable and knowledgeable. This was our second time trying their brunch and it is fantastic!
Not sure why but we were sat in the bar area that was extremely noisy. It was a date so I couldn't hear my date at all. If it wasn't a date I'd be ok being in the bar area.
Very disappointed! THREE TIMES we indicated to staff that our dinner was to celebrate our daughter-in-law’s birthday and NOTHING was done by anyone to celebrate .... not even a cupcake with a candle! Considering the cost ($60 per person) to us, you would think management would chip in something! A scoop of ice cream? A cookie? What a let down. For an “upscale” restaurant (as they sell themselves) I expected a more customer-oriented team than what we experienced. Will NOT return. Also very noisy atmosphere.
This was our second dinner at Matchbox, and it didn't measure up to the first. We had a 6:00 reservation for 4. Our waiter was very nice, but, he had a hard time hearing us and we kept having to repeat ourselves. We finally got our orders in, had calamari as an app. Really disappointed at the portion, it was barely enough for everyone to get a few pieces. For the price, I would have expected that it would have been ample enough to serve a family of 4. We eat out frequently and I travel for work, it was the smallest, most expensive dish of calamari I'd ever seen. Dinner came, in increments, not all the dishes came at the same time. The last thing to come out was sweet potato fries . . not an item that should've come 10 minutes after the rest of the meal. The food was good, not great, honestly for 4 people that had a couple of drinks, and app and dessert, with a bill over $200, it was not even close to the best $200 meal I've had. Very disappointed with the overall experience.
Great brunch ( the breakfast nachos and the cinnamon rolls are amazing). Service was excellent. Love the casual atmosphere.
Matchbox offers a fun atmosphere that is family friendly as well as great for a date night. Our dinner was a girl's night out and perfect spot to catch up with friends. The food was just the right amount and super yummy. I would definitely come again.
A little pricey but great service and the food was excellent.
Came here for my wife's birthday dinner , food was excellent, service is a bit shaky , but slow . Long wait for drinks , long wait and several asks for take out boxes for left overs
Our group enjoyed our first time lunching here. The food was great—soup of the day excellent. Server took good care of us—promptly refilling our drinks. The speaker & music over our upstairs table was a little loud & couldn’t really be adjusted just over our table. We had some lunchers who could have used elevator but weren’t offered the service. Our server did offer & was very sure to tell us that coming out in the kitchen was where we should be—otherwise we probably would have gone back to ground floor wondering about our mistake. Thanks for a great lunch.
Too loud . Sat in the back room. I felt like they need to do something for the excessive loudness of the room. People seemed like they were yelling to each other.
Our server was very nice.
Service is always lacking and slow here for some reason. I have been here many times and it is consistently off.
The BEST. Good for any occasion!
Brunch was excellent. They have a flat fee unlimited tapas style brunch, where you can try small plates of tasty food. It was the perfect brunch experience.
The service was terrible. We had to wait to try to get a drink at the bar and then we waited 25 minutes after sitting down before we saw a waiter. My husband had to go speak to the manager. Once we saw our waiter he was good, but they need to improve the system to check in with customers sooner! Food was delicious. I would recommend... if you are not in a hurry!
Wonderful service and incredible food. Very busy for Valentines Day and they were on top of the reservation schedule. Food was quicker than expected (maybe a little too quick?) but was hot and very well prepared. Husband loved his rare ribeye that was a true rare! Our waiter was excellent- knew the food, had good recommendations. The tuna tar tar tacos were incredible. Brought my wine with the entree like I asked and didn’t rush us out the door. I had the rigatoni and it compared to the pasta I had in Italy two years ago. Well done, will come again!
Valentine’s Day dinner
We had a reservation at 6:45 didn’t get seated until 7:10 due to the hostesses forgetting about us (wasn’t too happy about that). When I went up to tell the hostesses about the wait they tried to tell me it was my fault due to them texting and calling me. When they did text me at 6:50 I immediately went up and told them and they said to wait a little longer. I continued to wait for 20 more minutes before I went up again to ask about our seating because I noticed people coming in well after us were getting seated before us. They proceeded to tell me they were trying to reach me and implied that it was my fault but I let them know the situation as to when I did get a text, they told me to wait longer. Once I made that clear to them they immediately got us a table. After that everything was wonderful. The waiter we had was fantastic and recommended such amazing food. All in all matchbox is an amazing place, they just need to work on not forgetting about people being seated.
Valentine’s Day dinner. Food average anymore, price value no so good and you feel rushed in and out.
Not a bad place but there are better choices. The most annoying issue is the quick service to scoop up your plate and to ask if you need anything else. While on the surface, it may seem like prompt service but the reality is they are trying to turn over the tables very quick. I would probably go to TGIF before I went to Matchbox again.
Great food outstanding service!
The service was horrible! We had 8 people (it was my baby shower lunch) so I get it, it’s more than the normal 4 top but three peoples orders we’re screwed up upon arrival (which they just kept them because we waited so long). Some people’s meals were brought out 15 later than others, it was just not great. I’ve eaten there before and the food is normally good but the service was just terrible.
Great experience but it was a little loud. We were seated directly over the bar
Our server Denisse was Fantastic. Cheerful, friendly and attentive.
We LOVED matchbox. We went with our two toddlers and they marveled at the energy and lights and atmosphere. The noise level was perfect- no one was bothered by them! On top of that, the Captain Healthy Saves The Day plate was the perfect option for my boys to split. I've never seen such a simple, accessible, and healthy offering on any kids menu before. Hat's off to the chef who thought of it!
I love the weekend Brunch Box. It’s a nice choice a small tapas for all you care to eat for under $35. For whatever reason, I always get Erik as my server which makes me happy! He is professional and friendly and treats me as family. There aren’t many if any tapas style brunches in Loudoun County. If you are looking for a special treat on the weekend, give these guys a try. Ask to sit in Erik’s station, and be sure to try the avocado toast, chicken and waffles and arancini. Some of the highlights on the brunch menu, in my opinion.
Catie was amazing. Helped with our selection and service was incredible. Highly recommend.
Most food is good. The restaurant smells like strong smoke which gave me a headache.
Our server was excellent and the brunch was a GREAT value. Unlimited food and Bloody Marys, Peach Bellinis, and Mimosas for $3 each!
Delicious food and great atmosphere!
Loud in there. Service a bit slow - lots of empty tables. It was New Year’s Eve. Food was good.
All in all a good experience.
BBQ cauliflower pizza was delish
Best all you can eat brunch deal. I had 2 chicken pesto pizzas, shrimp and grits (with huge shrimp), 2 different types of French toast, and more.
A great value for the food and atmosphere
Food was fine, the service was excellent. It was Christmas eve and the turned the lights on before 9:30 p.m. but in general it was fine. Better than the last time I was there.
