It was just ok. Like something I'd make at home; not special but not bad. I got the veggie balls over polenta with Parmesan cream. The actual veggie balls were textured and quite good. The polenta with the sauce was a bit too soupy. It was also just warm, not quite warm enough. My dining partner got the veggie balls over ziti with classic tomato sauce; it was nothing special. The crab ball appetizer was pretty good. It was pricey for what it was, and we probably won't return.
We had such a wonderful meal here. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and very comforting for a cold night! We will definitely be back.
Great food, affordable price.
One of my favorites. A Brooklyn institution with delicious food and casual atmosphere. Drinks are great too.
Great spot, great idea, nice to be different!
Excellent service and tasty food.
The host and hostess that dealt with my group were very friendly. I had questions and they answered them with no issue. Once everyone in my group showed up, we were seated in the area that was reserved for us. Our waiter was friendly and great with recommendations that one of my friend's asked about. He was well aware of the three kids in our group and made they were taken care of as well. Overall, the food was great, the music was awesome especially since I grew up listening to hip-hop and R&B from the 90s, and the atmoshpere was excellent. I've been to this particular location before and finally got a chance to come back. I've even visited other locations in Manhattan. Everyone in my group said they would like to come back as well.
Hi Fernando, we're so glad to hear you and your party enjoyed the visit! We hope to see you all again soon!
They didn’t have our table ready for reservation and restaurant was far from crowded. One appetizer arrived frozen on inside and waiter didn’t apologize or offer a free dish. Kitchen sink salad greens were a little mixed in freshness. Other ms are great this one not so much.
HI Max, thank you so much for visiting us in Williamsburg and for sharing your feedback - we're sorry to hear that your experience was anything less than stellar, especially regarding the appetizer as these are all made fresh in house daily, and never frozen. Reaching out privately for more info!
Food was great! We were there for a friends reunion and enjoyed every bit of it there.
Platos sabrosos y muy buen servicio!
Fun evening! We had a nice table in the back and were able to talk easily. Food delish! Very quick service. We liked the vibe...small Williamsburg restaurant..not fancy.. but fun.
Food was excellent. Waiter fixed a mistake for an order with a brand new entree which was nice. My only complaint is the bar staff. My two friends and I stood at the bar for a drink before we were seated and we were not acknowledged. The bartenders were both busy and I am more than happy to wait my turn for service but you could literally smile at us and say “we’ll be with you in a moment” instead of us standing there and you can’t even make eye contact for a brief moment to acknowledge people standing at the bar. Bar was empty too. Only one couple sitting there only so I didn’t get that?? We ended up leaving the bar without a drink to go to our table. Didn’t appreciate that, other than that great time. I would suggest the bartenders improve their manners as this is a customer service industry right?
Really pleasant place to eat. Food was lovely but I had visited a couple of years back and felt that it wasn’t quite at the same standard as before. The staff were really friendly and helpful.
Really enjoyed coming here. I haven’t been to meatball shop in like 3 years and soooo much has changed, but it’s still good
Great food and vibe inside. We went for the classic baller plates which were absolutely delicious. The wine was really good as well. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent food and location! The meatballs and ice cream sandwiches are great!
