“No trip to Brooklyn can go without a Visit here!`”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Love this place! I have been 3 times and it is always fun! Portions are small so you can order a few things-try something different and share with fellow diners!
The Meatballs are Excellent-our fav is with Parmesan Cream and it comes with hearty bread for dipping the sauce! The Whisky Float is yummy but very strong! Mashed potatoes are truly excellent-comfort food on a cold day in NY!
The menu has a lot of great choices for all kinds of tastes-salads-sandwiches-sides and special drinks, too! The ice cream cookies are also amazing-save room for dessert!
Staff is friendly and it is a little noisy but all part of the atmosphere! Good prices especially for the trendy area and just a lot of fun to dine and hang out with people! Not always packed-depends on when you go but can get busy at peak times!

“Great fun, value and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

My husband and I went to this restaurant in the end of the day on a Sunday. It's always busy, so we waited for 20min or so.
The space is beautifully decorated (even the toilet has attention to details), the crowd is a bit hype, music plays loud giving the place a younger vibe.
To choose your food, you mark with a pen what you'd like (which was fun!). We got the meatballs with polenta/ pasta + ice cream and cookies. All was delicious and the price was fair.
Would absolutely recommend it.
:)

“Same great service, same very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Well thought through branding.
Meatballs could be a little less ground up, more meaty.
Cool, friendly knowledgeable staff.
Kitschy ordering system... but I like it.
Very Good value for money - $10.00 gets you a plate of food and Veg.

Dessert was EXCELLENT - Espresso Ice Cream on Choc Chip Cookies... BOOM.

Cocktails a bit pricy.

I have eaten at the Chelsea Meatball shop 3 times, these guys are super consistent.

Hope to see more of these pop up.

“Meatballs for lunch and dinner? Yes please!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

The Meatball shop is such a fun resturant, pull up to the bar order some meatballs a beer and enjoy the scene.
Located in Brooklyn this is a great place to have a fun lunch or dinner.
The menu is simple... Meatballs with sides.
Not too expensive and a great place to do some people watching.
Definitely worth a visit
