    We went for the unlimited brunch but weren’t thrilled with the buffet when we arrived so we ordered a la cart. Food was great, just wish they had a few breakfast items on the menu. View was great, as was our waiter.

    Our server NIKKO was on point with his service and attentiveness. I was a bit disappointed in the Chefs buffet. I felt the food was average for what we spent. Maybe next time, I'll do the Ala carte menu and give it another try. It was nice sitting out on the patio watching the boats on the river.

    Did not think brunch was worth anywhere near $35. They called it a "Chefs Table Bottomless Brunch". Now with brunch, anything with the word Bottomless (in my mind) would refer to drinks. I guess they mean water because we were charged for coffee and orange juice (we did not order mimosas so im sure there was an extra charge for that). There was no carving station, no eggs benedict.....just expected something a little fancier. They had salads, 2 pizzas, bagels, and the standard hot bar food you'd get at your local Howard Johnsons. I would NOT go for brunch ever again. Our server was lovely though

    Been to one at sawgrass. Brunch was just “ok”. Eggs could be more yellow and less manufactured. I bit overpriced for the offerings

    Only offered brunch buffet. Waited almost 25 minutes before we got water or drinks. We had finished eating practically before drinks arrived. Had to repeatedly ask other servers and bussers for help as our server was never available. Manager bought drinks as compensation which was appreciated. Overall seemed very disorganized. We love Matchbox as we have been to other locations. Will give them another chance but definitely not for the Brunch.

    The food was cold in the buffet, server was not a good listener and kept taking plates before we were done, silverware was taken but never replaced. Complimentary rolls were never dropped so we had to flag someone down. Mostly bummed about the lack of freshness on the food.

    Went for Brunch. Was a little disappointed at the brunch offering so only 1/3 did brunch and the other 2/3 just ordered a meal from the menu. The Salmon was fantastic. The brunch was good. No complaints about the food, just wish the buffet were bigger. On the other hand, when we arrived (1:30pm Saturday) the DJ outside had music blaring. We would have loved to sit outdoors to enjoy the river view but it was too loud. Couldn’t hear each other talking. I guess we’re old! Lol

    Went on opening night, which at many restaurants means they are still getting their act together. Knowing that we went with low expectations because it takes time to get organized and efficient. Matchbox was very busy, and we thought everything was great. Exceeded our expectations. Kudos to them.

    The waiter and staff were great, super friendly and attentive. It was their first day open and they have some kinks to iron out but it’s to be expected I suppose. The food was ‘ok’ and the cocktails the same.
