    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.

    The restaurant was nice and very clean. The waiter however took forever to actually come and take a drink order. Then again to order food. We were there pretty early so it wasn't really crowded. Food was good. I wasn't in love with this place.

    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.

    This was my first trip to the restaurant. It was a 8:15 PM, Friday night seating and the place was still loud & hopping; a bit too much for a comfortable dinner conversations. I'm hoping that a week day evening may be less chaotic; the food was good enough to give them another try. The serving sizes were conducive to share, and we were all delighted with the food. We staggered out well stuffed, carrying enough leftovers for another meal.

    If I say so myself, my meatballs are really good. Meatballs make them as good as I do, with a lot less hassle to me. The meatballs are cooked in a very good sauce, not like the bland tomatoe sauce some restaurants make.my husband ordered calamari fra diablo. It was served just as he ordered. Also with some extra garlic.

    Had a very nice dinner, however for me the food was a little too heavy on the garlic. We shared 2 different meatballs which were good...and the variety was so interesting I wanted to try several. The fried calamari was very good and the spaghetti and meatballs was good too. I didn't love my dish. The potatoes were highly seasoned with an herb I'm not fond of and my salmon dish was just ok. I would go back to try some other dishes as maybe mine just wasn't a good choice. I like the concept of all the meatballs and I'm eager to try a different kind.

    We decided to go to the Meatball Room for a special celebration. We were seated in a very noisy and cramped area. I asked the hostess, Jody, if we could be moved. She cut me off and dismissed me. The Caprese salad was three tasteless slices of tomatoes and three tasteless slices of mozzarella on a plate. Our sausage and peppers was poor, lacking flavor. Jody and one of the servers started to move the tables and chairs around us. The chairs were pushed up against us. It was as though we were invisable. We really didn't matter, though our money certainly did. Mother said, "Please don't take me here again." I agree with the other reviews, the Meatball Room is arrogant and nothing special. Mama Mia!

    The food was great and we loved the atmosphere. The service (server) left much to be desired. We had the Italian nachos as our appetizer... It was very flavorful, but a bit too much cheese that wasn't melted under the top nachos. We had the meatball sampler and we really enjoyed them as well.

    The atmosphere was similar to a diner. The food was too salty. The crowd was odd and the service was nonexistent. They need to step it up if they expect to be around. The only good dish we had was the calamari and scungeli app.

    This was out second time at the Meatball Room. The meatballs are always excellent. We were seated in a back room that isn't very appealing as the front of the restaurant. The pizza was a little too well done for my liking, but the calamari special was excellent.

They had a prixe fix dinner.The food was great.The service was also great.The selection of food was terrific. We all ordered Sangria I was disappointed they couldn't make pitchers since we were so many,but they managed to keep them coming. The comedians were very funny so we all had a good time.

    Our party of 4 arrived at 7, and was seated promptly in the back room. Next time we go, we will ask for the main room, as the noise level grew louder. when the other tables were seated. Our waiter arrived within minutes. He was about to get the drinks for another table, and asked if he could take our drink order as well. We did, and shortly arrived bread and water, drink order minutes after that. We had a house salad which came with cold plates and forks which was an added surprise for a meatball joint. Three of us had chicken parm, OK, a little boring. My wife the eggplant parm. The portions were large and tasty. Overall a nice dining experience. There is outdoor seating with music. We will be back, maybe for the meatballs next time.
