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.

Love Matchbox. I always go to the one loudoun location. The food is consistently good and the bar has a great vibe. Parking can be a challenge as the place has built up over the years so plan on parking at the parking garage 200 yards away.

The hostess did not confirm our check in and cancelled our reservation while we were seated at the table, and told our friend arriving late that there was no way we were seated. Our server was a little pushy and clearly trying to get us to finish up as we were the last table in her section even though we were only halfway through our meals. Food and drinks were excellent but service was underwhelming

I love their food choices and how simple the menu is. I go to mosaic as well as the loudon location. I am however disappointed with the service we got yesterday. I had the same server when I visited last month and I was disappointed. I had a girls night out and it was my friends first time there so they were definitely disappointed with the service. I might not go back to the Ashburn location and stick to mosaic

Very disappointed this visit. Either Matchbox as a chain has changed their menu, or the One Loudoun restaurant utilizes a much smaller menu. Maybe it's a COVID menu and will change again? Matchbox used to have extensive choices... but no longer! And, there were very few options for gluten free or vegetarian. Quite disappointing in 2021 where most restaurants provide numerous options to accommodate many diet restrictions.

My GF daughter and I ordered the pear and blue cheese salad with steak. Thank goodness for the steak! The salad by itself was nothing more than a simple side salad. There are SO many ways that restaurants often make dinner size salads both inviting and fulfilling. We were both left totally unsatisfied.

On a positive note- our server was very attentive and I always like the Matchbox settings. Unfortunately, I do not plan to come back unless I hear about improved menu options offered here. There are too many other restaurants we can try!

The food was okay, they only had 4 of the six white wines they offer, and prices are very high. $14 for a 10 piece shrimp appetizer and $14 for a brownie dessert. Nice ambience but we won’t be back. $200 not including tip is too high for a family meal.

Responded on May 30, 2021

Good evening, The pandemic has certainly created new challenges, especially as restrictions are raised and the demand for certain product is greater than it has been in over a year. Both white wines are unavailable from the production side, so we are patiently waiting for them to be available again. If convenient, please email me directly with any additional feedback that I can share with the team and we hope to see you again in the future. Best Regards, Marisa Roberts

We have loved the Ashburn location and have been long-time diners, but the past several times have been very disappointed in the service. We were promptly seated when we arrived and the hostess had to wipe the table down before we were seated and there were plenty of other available tables we could have been seated. Let me preface my comments with the restaurant was practically empty when we were there today. The server didn't even come to our table until 10 minutes after we were seated AND did not write down our order. And of course, we then had to address the fact that we had asked for our salad was to come out first and he said "oh, I thought you wanted it all at once." We had to ask for refills on our drinks, a box for the extra pizza, and our check. Our male server was messing around near the serving station with a female server (the female was grabbing, pulling, and hugging him where patrons could see). I don't know what is going on at this location! Favorite servers that had been there for a few years now seem to be gone (BIG MISTAKE)! We have decided to think twice about frequenting this location again.

Solid choice. The hostess was familiar with the table request I made in my OpenTable reservation; we were seated immediately and accordingly. Great spacing between parties per COVID protocol. Our server was clearly busy with many tables but made a point to drop by on a regular basis. We enjoyed a crab & avocado omelet, 3-count mini burger plate, a pepperoni pizza, and chicken & waffles -- all good but nothing spectacular.
