In the heart of Loudoun County is our dining oasis with two light-filled levels--each with shaded outdoor patios for great people-watching. Ask for a seat at our indoor/outdoor bar with firepit, or “the box,” a private booth suspended in the sky.

The private Barrel Room, named for its vaulted ceiling that resembles barrel rings, easily accommodates 55 hungry guests and comes with comfortable seating, a wood-burning fireplace and private wine coolers to store your favorite vintages.

Multiple soaring levels and four patios mean plenty of space for intimate dinners, private parties and get-togethers, plus everyone is treated to exciting views of the expo kitchen, where bubbling, thin-crust pizzas and chef-driven dishes make their debut.

We’re Ashburn’s neighborhood gathering place for fun, upscale casual dining and live music every Wednesday, plus local, award-winning beers, broad spectrum wines, and handcrafted signature cocktails.

Happy hour prices are only in the bar and don’t apply to the restaurant area.

Drinks sloppy and a bit of a mess for an $11 cocktails also did not have one of the signature cocktails on the menu. Drinks were not well mixed.

Calamari a bit stringy and pepper Jelly too thick for dipping.

Pizzas were great.

Service attentive but disjointed at times.

Outstanding food and service. We had an early dinner before a movie. The BBQ Burger was one of the best burger I have eaten. My wife had the Chicken Pesto Sandwich, it was excellent. The drink selection is extensive.

When we arrived at the table, a mgr was talking with a server. No one came over to take our drink orders for quite some time - my husband and i looked right at mgr and he ignored our looks. To the credit of another server he said something to the mgr and the female server the mgr was talking with cane over. Less than stalker service the rest of the meal, Server did not check on us. Had to be flagged down for refills. Had to be flagged down for check.

On another note, there was a table of six that arrived after us. The small child spilled his drink and there were two servers that saw what happened from their station and didn’t move to help. Yes, it wasn’t their table, but they should have helped the customers. The drink went all all the table and onto the floor before their server arrived to help (he was not Ione of the servers in the area). Unacceptable.

I think this location first needs to retrain management on what Exceptional Customer Service is and then retrain the staff. We have never encountered such poor service at any Matchbox that we have been at in years. We frequent the One Loudoun location often and it will be some time before we decide to return after today’s incidents.

My second time to this restaurant. First experience was a little better than the first but food and wine was great overall both times. The server was new and definitely rushed us on this visit. Not sure if it was because she was new or because they were pushing turnover because it was busy. Otherwise, good.

My only complaint is that the server was not very attentive (he seemed distracted by something) and was rushing me to pay the check so he could leave for the day ... my wife was interested in buying more drinks, but wanted to leave after feeling like being rushed to pay the check. With that level of service, I am not likely to return to Matchbox any time soon. I would recommend additional training for this server.

Normally I love this place. We went there for Mother’s Day lunch. Staffing wasn’t adequate for the crowd. Timing of food and apps was off, couldn’t get any drink refills without having to track down a server multiple times. Great bar spot rethinking the restaurant part.

I took my mother here for Mother's Day brunch. We both thought our meals were just so-so. I had the cinnamon roll french toast, and it was pretty mushy and just tasted okay. I would have preferred some pancakes or regular french toast, but neither was on the brunch menu. My mother had the ultimate breakfast sandwich and thought it was nothing special. She did like her breakfast potatoes though. We both had decaf coffee and it was terrible. I've had dinner and drinks here many times and was happy with those selections, the brunch just falls short.

The food and drinks were delicious. My only issue with this particular visit is that I had an immediate reaction to the gluten free Matchbox Meat pizza once I finished it, which has never happened. I visit this Matchbox very often, so I’m not sure what happened this time.

Met friends for an after-work dinner. It is noisy, but we made it work! Food is consistently good. I had the pear, apple walnut salad with a piece of salmon. It was yummy. Husband had spare ribs and he was happy. I am also a big fan of their burger (no cheese), and their banana pepper and pepperoni pizza. Solid spot in One Loudoun.

We enjoy Matchbox a great deal. This past weekend our pizza order seemed to get delayed, and when it arrived it was only lukewarm. After two slices I asked the waiter to just heat it up again; he insisted on bringing an entirely new pizza, piping hot (and quickly). No charge. Nice touch. Servers have always been extra-friendly, which makes for an enjoyable experience. Drinks OK, wine list good (the Matchbox red blend is excellent), pizza delicious.

They have a new menu with more than just pizza. The chorizo burger was good, but not as spicy as I would have liked. Good service, even on a busy day.

We enjoyed our Easter brunch here with family. They worked very hard to accommodate my daughter’s food allergies and welcomed us with a free appetizer as first-timers. The food was excellent and we would definitely return. Service was friendly and prompt.

We have eaten there before and liked it, we went for Easter Brunch, was hoping for a bigger brunch selection, especially for Easter. Still had good food and great service. Just not memorable for Easter Brunch. We will continue to frequent Matchbox, we love the bar area for casual dining and the special table upstairs.

This was a family get-together and we were looking forward to good food and great conversation. The bar was loud; don't know why we were taken there. The place wasn't crowded at all. This was our 1st visit to Matchbox, so I wasn't familiar with the layout, but asked for a quiet place. The fellow who waited on us wasn't familiar with the gluten free options. There were very few options except for pizza. If you are familiar with GF pizza, it's mostly served on the same frozen crust every other restaurant uses. No GF bun for burgers. No lettuce wraps. I had a small salad with a very small portion of steak part of which couldn't be chewed. Yuk! Won't be going there again. BTW, they entice you with 4 levels of dining, only one was available on this sunny Sunday. Wouldn't recommend for a special occasion.

Two of the three meals ordered at our table arrived incorrectly prepared. One was a burger that was missing toppings that were requested as well as the side (as in no side was brought at all). We had to ask two different servers to bring the side (fries). The other meal was the mini burgers/sliders that arrived cold and without the requested toppings. The onion straws with the sliders were also cold and tasted like nothing but grease. Little attempt was made to make anything right. Additionally, my drink (water) was only refilled once...as we were leaving. So disappointing. Will likely not return.

I've been to Matchbox many times. The food is always consistently good here. The service can be strained at times. Servers with too many tables seems to be a factor in close to half of my visits. Proper staffing at peak times doesn't seem well planned at times.

So loud inside; hard to have a conversation. Sat in a side private dining room which was fine until three families with small children were seated there too. there were two other business type dinners going on --- not understanding why the families had to be seated with the business diners.
