The Meatball Shop is a great go-to - quick, easy and delicious. Endless combinations of meatballs, sauces, and bases (pasta, rice, polenta). Our favorite is the pork meatballs with parmesan cream. A great pre-theatre dinner or place to enjoy with friends. Family-friendly as well.

First time to the Meatball Shop and loved it! Amazing handcrafted cocktails but a nice, casual setting. Great for a sit-down spot not too far from theatres or Times Square that isn't mobbed since it's a couple blocks off the main stretch, without being super expensive. Thanks again!

Brought a group and sat outside. Gavin our server was incredible. We had a lot going on and he handled everything with a “can do” attitude. Even the rain didn’t stop him as he rallied the table umbrellas to keep us dry. The food was great too!

Met up with friends for brunch. Our table was ready on time. We weren’t rushed at all.

Our server was great. He took the orders, didn’t mind coming back twice when we STILL hadn’t looked at the menu.

The food was great. Always consistent and delicious! Varying options for all of my friends with different dietary needs/preferences and no one leaves hungry.

Always a truly solid choice no matter the occasion.

The food here is AMAZING!! The service was excellent, our waiter Nick was so helpful at recommending what to order and he was so friendly and attentive. We had the meatball trio, cavitappi pasta with pesto, broccoli and chicken meatballs, the white bean salad and the classic meatball sub. And for dessert the vanilla bean ice cream sandwich with double chocolate chunk cookies. So good!! The next time we’re in NYC, we will definitely be back!

The food was excellent. The classic spaghetti and meatballs was perfect. My sons and I shared the triple decker ice cream sandwich, and it was delicious as well. The service was a little slow, and it is loud. I would definitely go back for the food anytime.

I hit The Meatball Shop almost right away once I'm in the city, and it never fails! Within hours of landing at JFK, I found my way to TMS and it was terrific. I ordered meatballs with spaghetti, and it was filling, piping hot, spicy and cooked to perfection. The service was solid and I had a great lunch! I'll be back.
