    The meatless meatballs are now horrible- hard and all breading . They used to be light with eggplant . I wS told by waiter they went back to original they did not..so disappointed as a vegetarian was my favorite option.

    If you think $15-18 for two meatballs is good value this is your place. Waitress for good but bus people were inexperienced. They kept trying to clear the table before everyone was done ( a huge pet peeve of mine) and taking away bread plates, knives, so we had to request new ones. A small house salad was a whopping $8 and was small and they forgot to put dressing on it. Duh. Entrée portions are large so that should please the older crowd that likes to take home most of their meals for breakfast the next day. It wasn't too busy on a recent Monday night but I suspect it will be slammed "in season".

    First time at the MeetBall Room and loved every minute of it! We were 7 people and each one of us ordered different entrees so we could taste a variety of choices. Each one was excellent and we ended up eating family style just so we could experience each dish. We were so impressed that I just booked my Fathers birthday party here in December. Fantastic !

    We celebrated Joanna's birthday here on the 27th of Oct. Had a wonderful time...our server was superb and the food was the very, very best. We took loads of pics, acted silly, never rushed, just a great time had by all...We will definitely return....Maybe for my birthday on 11/16...hint, hint! Our server even sang along with the rest of us Happy Birthday, clapped his hands, made it special. Thank you Meatball Room for a memorable birthday for Joanna.

    We decided to try the meatballs because it is the specialty of the house. We tried three different types. All were very good. Portion size is more than ample. The red sauce was very tasty. I would return to try some other dishes.

    ALl kidding aside, one meatball is huge enough to satisfy most appetites. The portions are large enough to share. The meatballs are varied and delicious. The salads are terrific, as are all the pasta dishes. An added touch...on SUnday night when we were there, 2 voacalists added to the evening's pleasure by singing during dinner. They really made it more special than just another evening out. Great veal, eggplant dishes. Want to return soon.

    The food was delicious and plentiful but...It was ladies night and no matter how far we sat from the bar and music, we could not hear the conversation at our table. Multiple requests to our waiter to tone it down went unanswered. Perhaps our waiter could not hear our request.

    We went early for dinner so the noise level was null. We went for the food and it was worth it. They do many activities and sounded like a fun place besides the food. Its definitely a place to re visit ! I have been to the NY Meatballs place and this one was I think better !

    Went for a weeknight dinner and there was a dj set up in the bar. Extraordinarily loud. The bar is directly next to the dining room. Therefore, you had club music while at dinner. It was fun, but if you want something more serene this is NOT the place for you. The food was quite good. We had veal meatballs and chicken scarparella (sp?). Both dishes were excellent.

    As per my 12 yr olds request we ate at The Meatball room Sunday night. We have eaten there several times before. The food has been consistently good but the service is lacking. The waitstaff is always extremely nice but It seems like we are always looking for the waitress/waiter. They need to be a little more attentive. When we 1st arrived it was still light out but after the sun went down the it was very dark inside. Overall we all had a delicious meal and a great time followed by a tremendous ice cream brownie sundae that we all shared. The portions were large enough for leftovers. And all of our meals came out correct and hot! We will definitely go back soon. My kids love it there!! Great neighborhood place!!

    Walking in, there was a radio show being broadcast live from the bar area which caused it to very loud. Upon being seated, we saw a guy making balloon animals for the kids and a number of kids were running around. We ordered drinks and a pizza for starters. Pizza was very good and a nice size. We then ordered our 3 entrees and upon delivery, two of them were wrong and also drowned in sauce. The server was very apologetic but he helped deliver them so it means he never bothered to check if they were right. It took about 15 minutes to replace the entrees and I would call them ordinary, same as you would get at a pizza place, not a fine dining establishment. There are so many other good Italian restaurants in the area so we will not return.

    We have been many times and every time the hostess has been RUDE! She looks down her nose at you when asking what she can do for you. If you don't have a reservation she is even nastier. If you do have a reservation she will literally size you, and your party, up and then decide if you are cool enough to sit where you can be seen. Get a new hostess and earn 5 stars!!!!!

    We have been to Meatball Room many times with a number of different people starting about when they opened for business. The food has always been excellent...especially my favorite, the Strawberry Cheesecake Sunday or whatever they call it. The problem is that except for 1 out of maybe 8 or 10 visits, we have had service ranging from adequate to poor. Sometimes it seems as if the waitperson may be new and they are trying. Sometimes they just don't know how to handle a situation. From the first two times when I tried to use the Android App they put out and not even the manager knew what it was to the time the waiter couldn't understand that my gift card was only paying for half the bill and then couldn't figure out how to fix it.

  • Too Noisy on Wednesday Ladies Night

    Dined on 8/20/2014
    Decided last minute to eat here for first time. Didn't realize Wed is ladies night -- free drinks in the bar. Sat in dining room but couldn't hear each other. Appetizer order got delayed; wasn't charged which was nice. My evening special of shrimp w/Dijon/risotto was very good. Hubby had the spicy meatballs (2) with spaghetti. We took home 1/2 the portions. Good food but way too noisy for us.

    WOW! What a disappointment - we found the food tasteless and bland. Everyone was raving about the meatballs - mine are much better. The acoustics are terrible - the restaurant was not THAT busy BUT we could hardly talk to each other and when a table of 4 sat next to us, that was it. If we had not been finished eating already, we would have left (we also left 3/4's of our food). I will say, the waitstaff was courteous and very helpful and a visit from the manager who wanted us to be pleased was appreciated. Really sorry because more restaurants are desperately needed in this area...

    The food was quite good but the service was just okay. The restaurant was not full, but the bar was very crowded. The restaurant was so noisy that we ended up yelling at each other and still not able to have a conversation. Looking forward to trying the take-out service.
