Fun place. Meatballs are good on a brioche roll. Side salad with apple slices was a perfect complement. Espresso ice cream between two chocolate chip chunk cookies was to die for!

I hate putting a one star because it’s such a good concept. Maybe it’s just that I’m Italian and have a higher standard for meatballs, but these tasted bland and basic. Real Italian meatballs often ev...en mix meats - which isn’t even an option on their menu. Their sauce just tastes like marinara out of a can with lots of salt added. Definitely no Italians working at this place! See More

It's a great and surprising place that has great food and wonderful service! Nelson talked to my 7 year old about Pokémon and Zoe was on point explaining the subtle differences of the meat balls. If... you want some wholesome food check it out. We had brunch and the Balls Benedict eggs were poached perfectly and they accommodated my kid with a spaghetti and butter without batting an eye.

Good concept selling meatballs! Different variety on meatballs, sauces, and side dishes. Sliders and sandwiches, you pick what you want to mix with. The staffs were super friendly, we enjoyed the food... and they made a really good mango cocktail if you are in the mood of a little sweetness in your drink! See More

Visited my daughter on the UWS this weekend and she took me here. Oh my! It was absolutely delicious, the menu is creative, and the service is outstanding. If you go to NYC, The Meatball Shop is a must!

Where to start? This place is basically my heaven... Get a meatball... Add any sauce you like (omg parmesan cream sauce!) And then put it on or with anything you like? (Mashed potatoes for me). This p...lace it literally heaven. And the desserts and drinks are good too! Sad to be moving out of the city but glad I got my last dinner there!! Thanks!! See More

A great find in East Village. Great food, attentive service and a fantastic vibe in the restaurant. The queues reflect the popularity of this place. I will come again.

Great place, great service and great atmosphere only thing bad to say was the bathroom typical of NYC restaurants they only had one for such a busy place. Overall great experience for visiting NYC!!!

Everything about this place is great! I went to the one in Brooklyn countless times while living in New York and each time was memorable. Great food, great staff, great vibe. I countdown the days when... I can eat there again. See More

Had the meatball sandwich with pesto. It's the deal. Also tried the risotto and the kale. Take my advice and mix them.

I love the Meatball Shop! As someone who thinks that meatballs are just a perfect food, I love the variety that this place offers. I have been to several of the different MB shop locations and at ev...ery one of them the food is delicious, the staff is knowledgeable, and the service is great. They also offer some inventive cocktails to enjoy with your meatballs, and you can't help but enjoy the tongue-in-cheek humor! I even own their cookbook and can attest that every recipe I have made out of it comes out great (and my friends will agree). On my most recent trip to NYC, I brought two friends who had never been to the Meatball Shop to the Hell's Kitchen location and we all couldn't say enough about how great the food was and how friendly our server Dan was. I will definitely go back again and again. Love it!!!! See More

We stayed there for 4 hours. The atmosphere was so welcoming and relaxing. The food was to die for. Highly recommend the watermelon adult beverage. Dessert was out of this world. Easy to travel to.

I enjoyed the pork meatballs in Mushroom gravy and the corn risotto - absolutely out of this world! I brought an order home for my son and guess where he will be going!

My friends and I stopped in for a late lunch before a concert yesterday and we loved it! The whole place is so cool. The food was delicious! The white sangria is super good (I need that recipe!) and w...hoever invented the Mac n cheese balls is a national treasure and should be protected at all costs because OMG YUM.
But the very best part of our experience was our waiter Lionel. He is FANTASTIC! I tried to kidnap him and take him back to Massachusetts with me but he wouldn't come with me. Lol we took pics with him before we left! He's an A+ employee and a good egg. He saw us later in the day after work while we were in line waiting for the concert and gave us all big hugs.
Thank you for a GREAT experience! I'll be back if I ever get to NYC again.
