“Delicious concept”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

You may wonder how an entire restaurant concept can be meatballs. It works great, and I love their food. I eat here every time I'm in New Haven. The meatball selections are all delicious. In addition, they have great changing specials menus. I have yet to try anything I don't love. Their spiked floats are tasty, but the food is the main attraction. The atmosphere and design are very cool. The coat rack and wall decor are made out of shop tools and materials. It's a fun place to be.

“Meatball Madness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Where else can you find a place that serves up one of Americas favorite foods? The Meatball House completely focuses on serving you the ultimate meatball experience. The menu is easy to follow with your choice of meat, sauce, and pasta (including Mac and cheese!). They have a wide variety of micro brews and wine. Low light setting, easily enjoyable as a couple, with friends, or with family. Enjoy!

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This little restaurant is big on value! We went on a Wednesday night for dinner. We got there early enough so we didn't have to wait for a table. The staff was very accommodating, friendly,and helpful. The happy hour was about to end, so we ordered a glass of wine and a beer at a cheaper price. The menu is simple: meatballs, sauce and a side. The appetizers sounded scrumptious, be we opted to share a salad. The meal came quickly and was delicious. I ended up taking half of my dinner home because it was more filling than I had thought it would be. We loved this place with its clean, modern decor and great service. I would definitely come here again to try other choices. The prices are small but the value is huge!

“Nice change of pace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

We loved it. Meatballs dishes are creative, delicious and affordable. A couple of glasses of wine and a shared appetizer and we had a very nice dinner for under $50 including tip. About the same cost as a chain restauant except fresh food and fresh idea.

“Meatball madness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Came here Saturday evening for dinner. We arrived early enough to catch the end of happy hour!
Many beer choices on the happy hour list. More limited wine choices, but quite enjoyable. This was our first time here. The restaurant is small, as are most in New Haven. The decor was very nice. The entire restaurant, including the rest rooms, were very clean. The wait staff was very attentive, helpful and accommodating. The food was delicious! Choose your meatball type, your sauce, and pasta or potato. Very filling. Very tasty. Can't wait to go back and make other choices! Very reasonably priced. We would recommend this place to anyone!
