    This restaurant made our trip in DC. We spent just over a week in DC and we ate here 3 times. The chicken pesto is to die for! You can order half/half pizzas to try more types! All were amazing!

    The Prosciutto + Black Mission Fig pizza is delicious sweet and savory option made with roasted garlic, mozzarella, gorgonzola, black pepper honey, and arugula.

    The mini burger appetizer is a must! Hand-pattied certified angus beef, toasted brioche, pickles, onion straws, and a choice of gouda, mozzarella or gorgonzola.

    You can't go wrong with any of their pizze, and that burger appetizer was a whole meal all by itself. Thank you Wilbert for a great service and that winner attitude.

    Awesome service from Manny! And the pizza was mind blowing! Try the one with prosciutto, figs and arugula! Never imagined figs on a pizza, but the sweet/salty mix was amazing!!! :)

    Just had the fire smoked pizza today and it was delicious. Didn't have that awkward fusion taste of flavors I've experienced with other pizzas. The flavors were in perfect harmony with that spicy pow!

    Great food, great service! The bartenders were able to make great recommendations for things to do around the city. I tried the crab cake hash that was on special. I will definitely be back!

    Enjoyed the service and atmosphere. Great stop before an event at the Verizon Center or Shakespeare Theatre Company. Pro Tip: Get the Prosciutto and Black Misson Fig pizza!

    I had the crab cakes- there were delicious. Lots of crab meat, pan seared, no filler, nicely seasoned. The fries were a little salty for my taste but anyway I'd definitely recommend this place!

    Helina F. is a great server, the veggie burger was excellent, as was the sesame tuna salad. The thin crust pizza was a hit with the kids. Family friendly. Get the onion straws too.

    The meatball pizza was delicious and the chicken stuffed with mac and cheese. I recommend the apple crisp and bread pudding!

    Couldn't decide between the prosciutto and fig pizza or the Q, so I got half and half at no extra charge. Both were delicious. And Adam, our waiter, was delightful.

    First time here from NYC! Did half-half pizza: Q Special and Prosciutto White. Enjoyed the Q more bc I'm not an olive lover. Magic brownies are great for dessert & sharing! Cute atmosphere.

    Honestly one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. All the food was fantastic -- especially the doughnuts -- and the servers are wonderfully attentive and friendly.

    At one of my happy places. Love sitting at the bar and soaking up the energy & conversation. The cocktails aren't bad either.

    This place's forte is the, of course, the pizza. I would strongly recommend the Black Fig and the Chicken Pesto which whose flavor was daring and yet exquisite.

    Great brunch. Try the Chinatown cocktail or a Bloody Mary. Huevos rancheros or steak and eggs are good options. Breakfast pizza too.

    Veggie burger is so delicious. Pizzas are good but I think they should increase the amount of cheese

    Do not leave D.C without having pizza at Matchbox. Fantastic pizza, great atmosphere and a great place to hang out with a group of friends.

    This is one of my favorite places to eat in Chinatown DC. Try their pizza or sliders, but be ready to wait because it is usually packed

    OMG get the apple/pear salad, it's divine! The sliders are really good too, although too many onion straws. Service was outstanding as always!

    If you can't decide between two pizzas, go half and half. Loved the fire and smoke pizza. The Ginger Snap martini was a great accompaniment.

    OK this is just plain fun. Go to the Chinatown/Gallery Place area and head here. The place will be packed so of course call ahead but the food is good. I like the pizza's but some like mini burgers

    While Matchbox is known first and foremost for their pizza, their Bistro Burger served with bacon and Gorgonzola on a buttered brioche bun is one of the best around.

    If God ate pizza, He'd eat at matchbox. At the fucking bar. And He'd cuss because God rocks you. I reccommend the following bartenders: Shannon, Laura, Eric and I'm warming up to Lauren and Lindsey.

    Try their brunch! Their steak and eggs were excellent. Also, an interesting Bloody Mary and other morning-beverage list. Worth a trip on a Sunday late-morning/early afternoon.

    Try the Fig and Prosciutto. It's amazing. Get it in a half and half with the fire and smoke if you want the spice too.

    Great place. Pizza is real brick oven and not just thin crust. Get early on weekends as the wait can be long and bar fills up quickly
