This place is great for group reservation. We were a party of six and with a reservation there was no wait! The service was good, food portion was large and the taste was delicious.

This was our second time there and it was as good as the first time.

We were greeted courteously and seated immediately. Our server took very good care of us and the food met expectations. With a mix of entrees from sub sandwiches to meatball and skillet dishes everyone enjoyed their meals. A nice selection of craft beers were available . We had a comfortable dinner and had easy conversation without having too yell!

I had eaten in a different Meetball location a few years ago, so we wanted to try it again.
The server was great, the music was way too loud for us and I found the meatballs to be half the size, much smaller than when I first tried your restaurant. Won't be coming back. Just not for me.

Food was good. Service was good. No complaints, except they have a weird cola that is decidedly NOT Diet Coke. ;)

We made a reservation for 8:45 and were not seated until 9:30. Coupled with mediocre food and service, it’s needless to say to avoid this place like the plague.

Food doesn’t have much flavor. I wasn’t impressed with the TMP tatter tots at all they were big for tatter tots but didn’t have much flavor once you bit into them. I also ate the chopped salad and it okay. Nothing to write home about. I don’t think I’d go back to eat here but maybe I’d go for drinks.

We had reservations for a Saturday night, but had to wait a half hour to be seated. HOWEVER....the staff could not have been more apologetic and accommodating for the delay. Although on the loud side, the atmosphere was great. We left by 9 when band was setting up so am sure the late crowd would be fun. Would DEFINITELY return.

Well, I must say, food was very good. There were 7of us, everyone enjoyed.

I would give 4 to 5 stars but unfortunately one of the meatballs in one of the dinners had a bunch of hair in it. Didn't finish that dinner. Apparently the first meetball in it was very good though, lol.

Food was good and everyone working there was very nice. The down side is there is nothing in the restaurant to absorb sound and it was just too loud.

Meal is always very good. When we want to go someplace fun lively and with good food prepared well, we choose TMP. I love the Brooklyn Sunday Pasta meal, last night I tried the Mediterranean and it was just as good. Our favorite apps are of course the Big Pretzel and the hummus plate is excellent

This was our first time coming to That Meetball Place this past Saturday night after a movie for our friend Mary's birthday. We decided to do a bunch of appetizers so we can taste a few things. Everything was delicious but a little pricey. The drinks were good, but those were a little pricey too. Our server was great (very attentive and patient) considering the place was packed. Making reservations on Open Table helped because we walked in and were seated right away. The place was really nice inside but very loud. We didn't mind because it was a fun atmosphere. They had a live band and no cover charge. We would definitely go back again.

Everything was great and so was the band but while they played, no one in my group could hear each other talk. I wish the band started later, more for the bar crowd rather than during the dinner hours.

I have heard about That Meaball Place but haven’t experienced it until now...and I am so glad I did! Upon entering our senses were overjoyed! The amazing aromas filled our nostrils and great acoustic music satisfied our ears. We got there a little before our reservation and were greeted by 2 friendly hostesses. We were escorted to our seats right away.
Patrice, our amazing server, quickly greeted us and gave us his recommendations and gave us time to look things over. We took his advice and thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience!
Our apps included tots (mashed potatoes with bacon deep fried with horseradish dipping sauce), and the most delicious nacho platter we had ever had.The meatballs were with black bean and a Mexican flair. Delish! I knew I could not eat an entire meal; but Patrice recommended that I get a single ball on a baguette. And so I did...lobster ball with a pancetta sauce on the baguette. My husband got the chicken parm balls on rigatoni-AMAZING!
Dessert-small cookie skillet.
I love that there are small and large sizes of apps, meals and desserts!
Amazing place-delicious foods-great service-outrageous atmosphere! Will definitely go back!!!
Thanks!
