Energetic lively however service is a bit of slow. But overall I enjoyed it. Oh but drink wise water down drinks barely any alcohol so you won't get drunk. Cake nothing but sugar

While the food was great, the atmosphere left much to be desired - it felt like trying to eat dinner in the middle of a nightclub.

The Servers were doing an excellent job, the portions were very small for the cost. If you are light eater and like small portions with drinks, this is the perfect place for you. If you are seeing a show and want a real meal, this is not the place for you.

Fantastic food and servers. Did the bottomless option and was not disappointed - they were very prompt at refilling and most times I had 2 drinks on the table since they came before I had finished the first one. Would definitely recommend.

The food was wonderful and we never had to wait long for a drink or refill. They do get you in and out fast, which is great before a theater performance. Your table time is limited to 1-1/2 hours so keep in mind. The only real complaint is the music is pretty loud, so it doesn’t lend itself well to much conversation.

Loved it here! Great music and they actually keep the mimosas coming out fast! My boyfriend and I did the bottomless dinner and left the restaurant just like we wanted to! A bit pricey but for the service we got I didn’t mind…. Yolo. Highly recommend!

We arrived late during a downpour and the United Nation's General Assembly. The hostess was friendly and kind, asked us for proof of vaccination, and then let us be seated at our table (despite one member of our party not having arrived yet).

The service was fast without feeling rushed, the waitress was friendly and helpful. And the food was delicious.

We’re so happy to have gone to the Mean Fiddler, it was a wonderful way to start a fantastic night!

Went for bottomless brunch. Drink sizes are super small. Waitress was attentive, refills promptish but after we paid and still had drinks and food she turned very rude and told us we needed to leave because they needed the table. Gratuity was include and $10 a person. Didn’t appreciate to prompt dismissal after we paid.

Very fun spot for a bottomless mimosa brunch, and a block away from Times Square. Plenty of options for their bottomless brunch including (but not limited to) High Noons, Mimosas, and Bellinis. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff. Get the nachos!!!

My new favorite place for brunch in the city! Love the variety of drinks in the bottomless option, plus you can upgrade for $10 for even more drink options. Food was delicious (try the truffle fries). The DJ played great music and the ambiance was fun but not so loud that you couldn’t talk to your group. Can’t wait to come back again!

I did bottomless dinner here and it was so fun! The drinks were really good and there was a DJ playing great songs :) the food was also so so food - I got the buffalo chicken sliders.

The only issue I had was that online it says bottomless is until 9pm, but when we got there at 8pm they said it ended at 8pm. They still let us do 90 minutes of bottomless tho and it was very fun!!

The Mean Fiddler had great music and vibes, and very attentive and kind servers. The Mojito and Magner's Cider are great options for drinks. Mozzarella sticks, chicken sandwich, and beef sliders are all super tasty. The food is a little pricey, but not extremely so and definitely worth it for an outing with friends.

the food was decent, nothing fancy. its not really filling unless you get a burger which comes with fries. If you get the sliders, they dont come with fries and a side order of fries is $10 (NOT worth it) if you do the bottomless brunch they have plenty of drink options and they'll keep bringing more if you ask. the music was bomb though! they played a lot of hits from 2016 and it was a vibe. i feel like it has the potential to get lit but covid is preventing that
