    Borderline Pathetic

    Taking the number ratings I just provided above, I'd say I'm being nice. To start, if you are considering eating here, and mind you that means waiting at the bar for a good 30 minutes before you get seated, you really should bring a parka or run the risk of catching pneumonia. The place is freezing. A minor suggestion for the establishment... turn up the heat and the music. Both were at levels way too low for anyone to enjoy the atmosphere. Secondly, the pizza upset. One would assume that if a restaurant includes a "build your own pizza" option, it wouldn't be too difficult for them to actually use the ingredients you've selected. Typically this would mean that if the pizza is bad, it is more than likely due to your poor judgment with the toppings, rather than the actual restaurant. Wrong again. I had selected the fixings for a most delicious pizza and was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, 4 of the 6 toppings were missing. Now, I'll take partial blame for this. We arrived at the place around 9:30 and I imagine at that point the employees were about ready to call it a night (I mean it's not like DC is a big city or anything). That said, our waitress proceeded to sort of giggle out an apology and say "I spoke with the manager and we've decided to not charge you for 2 of the 4 missing toppings." (meaning we were charged for the other two MIA toppings) Was that some sort of favor? Not charge me for something I ordered but didn't receive? I beg to differ. At most other restaurants, the pizza would have been off the bill at that point with a visit from the manager and a complimentary meal should I choose to return. All of that said, the only redeeming part of the meal were the mini-burgers (some would call them "sliders", but not Matchbox) and the fried onions they came with. Those were delicious. Enough to make me return in an over coat for cold pizza, poor service, and paying for something I wasn't even served... Probably not.

    Overrated but a Fun Place for Groups

    Number one, the service was so bad. I went there with a group of people and the waiter kept on forgetting to bring our drinks and other condiments. He was very indifferent until he gave of us the bill and wanted a tip. The food was pretty good. We all shared a couple of pizzas, the mini burgers and fried onions(those were very good) and chicken dish. The prices are ok, but I really can't get over the service. I guess DC doesn't have many "pizza bistros," thus the fuss over this place.

    Gem in Chinatown

    Matchbox is always packed at lunchtime, popular with the work crowd. This place serves NY style pizza, with a fairly thin crust. Their burgers are also popular. Matchbox is somewhat small for the crowds, and there's often a wait. Though, one can wait at the bar, and watch the game on the televisions.
