I had a nice lunch with an old friend at Matchbox. Everything was fine but the pizza was mediocre. Not terrible, mind you, but a big soggy. Service was quite lovely, and the place is well appointed. But food rules and that explains the three...More

Wanted to change things up a bit for my annual birthday luncheon with a little shopping around the edges. Mosaic's Matchbox was just the ticket. Urban-Chic with a Great-American feel, the decor and atmosphere were cozy, and the menu offerings mouthwatering. (They have a room...More

After hearing this was a good place to eat, I find that it's overpriced for the quality of the food. I had a chicken cob salad which looked amazing but the white vinaigrette dressing was absolutely TERRIBLE, nothing but oi! No flavor. One place I'm...More

Lunch was delicious. The menu had something for all members of our group and we were all very satisfied with our selections. The service was also great. They were very crowded but we were not forgotten.

We had a wonderful dinner at Matchbox after a movie at Angelika theater in the Mozaic District of Fairfax. The food is always good, but tonight we had a lovely server that made the dinner that much better. Her name is Ifrah. I wish Matchbox...More

Consistently great! My favorite are the sliders and especially the onion straws. Maybe it's the added parmesan cheese, but there onions straws are amazing! The pizza is solid and their brunch has great features as well...like the cinnamon rolls!

Overlooking Strawberry Park in the vibrant Mosaic District, our 40-seat patio with fire pit offers outdoor dining and front row seats to Angelika Film Center’s outdoor screen and prime people-watching. Inside, exposed pipes and warm brick line the walls surrounding 220 seats, all with views of the glowing wood wall, reclaimed from barn-wood from Rochester, New York. Watch the action at the pizza bar, as cozy brick ovens fire up thin-crust pizzas in minutes, or be the center of attention in “the box” that seats six. The private Barrel Room, named for its vaulted ceiling that resembles barrel rings, easily accommodates 50 hungry guests and comes with plush booths, a wood-burning fireplace and private wine coolers to store your favorite vintages.
