You would think that if your signature dish is meatballs then they would be exceptional. Far from it, hard, like warm and tasteless for the most part. I would not recomend.

Soup was a little salty for my taste, but the eggplant sub and broccoli rabe were very tasty. For lunch a good value.

Food was very good i have no complaints in that regard, maybe if anything a little pricey. Service was fine, pretty much standard service. But the noise was horrible. The live music is so obnoxiously loud you cant even hear yourself think. It funnels throughout the whole restaurant and causes you to have to scream to talk to the people at your dinner table. I will not be returning for as long as there is live music.

I love the Meetball place. I've been numerous times. The food and service was fabulous, as always, however, the noise level is really insane. It was a Saturday night, but definitely not busy enough to warrant the sound level in the restaurant and there was no live music playing, either. It's as if there is no insulation or acoustics in the walls. Other than the noise, it was an enjoyable evening.

We purposely put down that we wanted low top tables bc we wanted to be upstairs where it was quieter. When we got there, we were told they only had high top tables which were right by the door and they are. It sure why open table gives the option. We had no choice but to take the high top table, but were then rushed bc the band started to set up about 9pm. We were also cold by the door. The restaurant blamed open table for the mix up w the reservation and said we are better off calling than using open table.

We made an 8pm reservation on a Friday night and good thing we did because it was crowded. We shared half size Nachos which was delicious. Huge portion even for 2 people we didn’t even finish them. Came out super quick too. Then we each got the Meetball sampler which was so good as well. The classic Meetball was to die for. It was loud but to be expected on a Friday night. Had a great time and will be back again. Only downfall is parking can be tricky so make sure to arrive with a little extra time to find a spot.

Food is always great there. But last time I had a table for two upstairs and they overcrowded the tables. Spent my whole dinner being bumped into by staff and other customers there.

We had a terrific experience on Saturday evening. we initially had a reservation for eight that at the last minute was changed to 10 and Winnie and the staff were terrific in accommodating us.

the staff made a couple of food suggestions that were terrific.

Half of us have been there previously and it was a new (and very enjoyable) experience for the all. We all expect we will be making future group outings there.

I really enjoy this place but I normally come for drinks at the bar. I had made reservations for Sat at 7:30pm and I made these well in advance. We got there on time, early actually and weren’t seated until 8pm. I don’t know how reservations work on this thing but if it’s filled up a certain time it should X out the time. Other people were waiting and going up to the poor hostess asking how much longer. I saw a woman who I assumed was a manger coming back and forth to the front but she did nothing but allow the poor young girl take the constant questions. You know something is wrong you back you your worker and offer the customer a drink or appetizer on the house. Very poorly executed. I doubt I’ll go on a busy night again bc it seems they can’t handle reservations correctly.

Went for the second time - with a group of girls for my birthday. There was something for everyone and everything was delicious. The only complaint is that the music was loud enough to make conversation a little strained, but we're already planning our next trip back.

Just flabbergasted! Made our 11:30 reservation here on OpenTable several days ago. Even replied affirmatively to a text to confirm again. I showed up with my guests at 11:25 and was told the restaurant wouldn’t be opening until noon. Wait, what??! We should have been welcomed in, perhaps seated and given some drinks while the kitchen was getting fired up, but no. We were turned away. Bad business. Very bad business. We all know people who enjoy eating out. And THEY know people who enjoy eating out. And so it goes. Word of mouth will pass this story along.

Unfortunately we waited 20-25 minutes for our table. Which I was fine with. But half way through our appetizer the music was cranked up to a ridiculous level. So the restaurant was full with lots of chatter now with the music raised you couldn’t even have a conversation. The staff was friendly and courteous. Once we were seated our food came quickly. I had Mac and cheese and found it dry. My husband had some kind of meatball dish which he really enjoyed. Overall I wouldn’t be in a rush to go back.
