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: 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.

Matchbox is one of our go-to date night restaurants in Loudoun. Though I’ve never had a meal there I didn’t love, I am now obsessed with their Ginormous Meatball with wood-fired bread which is on the appetizer menu as a stand-alone item but I always add the pasta and sauce with it to make it an entree. My husband usually opts for the Cobb salad with fried chicken but we’ve also enjoyed their fish dishes, as well as their pizzas.

Matchbox has a good selection of interesting cocktails, though we find that they tend to be on the weak side, even if they’re tasty. I also enjoy the Malbec they have on their wine menu. They were out of the Malbec last night, and I opted for the Pinot Noir instead which was fine. We are usually too full for dessert but couldn’t resist ordering the carrot cake on the menu last night. OMG the portion could have fed a small country! It was so delicious and we had plenty to bring home.

Matchbox never disappoints!

Dinner with work colleagues. Nice, comfortable, good food, and relatively quiet. (A Tuesday evening).

The prices for too many menu items are market priced, and over the top expensive. I understand the supply chain issues, but other restaurants seem to be managing this issue better. Just won't go back until things are more consistently priced.

Everything we ordered on the menu tasted delicious. We even tried the shakes which I would warn are served in big portions. Our server and staff at the restaurant were friendly and made sure everything was ok. I would definitely recommend for folks with big families.

We were seated close to the door with the restaurant not even half full when we arrived. It was chilly every time the door opened. Too many screaming kids the night we were there--they need to do a better job of seating families with small children near each other and let adults eating with other adults have their own area and PEACE (I've already raised my kids). Very annoying.

We used to enjoy Matchbox. However, the food is now mediocre and the prices are outrageous. There are many better options for dining out in One Loudoun.

Realizing these are tough staffing times for the food and service industry, I was understanding when I arrived for a business lunch with a client and was told by the hostess that the computers were down and they could only take cash or "write down credit card info" to charge later. I said I would pay cash. Then another staffer brought the menu's and started taking us upstairs - despite my noting in the reservation and again at arrival we requested seating outdoors. Seeing the small patio was nearly full, the young lady suggested we sit at the bar where there were many seats available. We did as asked, but she disappeared without giving us our menus. It was good, we had business to discuss right away, as it was over 15 minutes seated, before we had to wave a bus boy to get some menus, and another 10 minutes before wait staff even showed up for the order. The waiter was ok, but he brought the wrong drink order, and the food ordered was mediocre at best. At an establishment charging well over $20 for a salad, it was disappointing. Time is money and we lost 30 minutes to discuss an important contract due to the misfire. Management needs to watch the service, because 3 strikes during one visit is too much.

The food was great, and the staff was friendly. However, during our visit the point of sales system was malfunctioning and we had to pay in cash. Luckily, between us we barely had the funds, but it was still annoying. Who carries that much cash?

Made a reservation and walked in with no hostess at the counter and she came after a few minutes as she was just sitting at a table doing her homework. Requested outdoor seating prior to making reservations and they said I had to wait at-least 30 minutes. They’re understaffed and not friendly. I’d suggest going somewhere else

We typically have a nice experience at Matchbox, but our Sunday brunch did not fit the norm. We were seated in the bar area with a party of 5. The service was extremely poor, and the waitress appeared to have an attitude for no reason. She took a long time to bring our drinks and even take our order. She walked us several times by without taking our order later asking if we needed anything. The food was good though. Her attitude improved as we were close to finishing our meal but by then it was too late.

Hostess was able to accommodate our reservation change. Food was excellent. Drinks were hit or miss and overpriced for the size. Service was just OK but that is a sign of the current times. Asked for a birthday presentation as we were celebrating our daughters 21st birthday and the staff was not cooperative, just putting a waffle with whipped cream on the table and walking away. All of the food was delicious and I would go back again.

The environment is amazing! The décor and design are very impressive. I had the pizza, which was wonderful. The frustration came from painfully slow service, waiting endlessly for refills, etc. And it is NOISY. We were having a farewell dinner for a friend who is leaving the state. There were only 5 of us in our party. They seated a large party of about 12 people near us. They were loud, but the design of the place absorbs no sound and actually echoes and amplifies sound to the point that I couldn't hear the people at my table who were just two seats down.

Great for ambiance...not for actually wanting to converse with people or have decent service.

Horrible service. Gave it another chance after the last time and service was worse! I have not been to a restaurant with bad service like this in a while...seems as though they don't care and don't train well.
