We actually ordered take-out as the restaurant had a 1 hour wait during the week and it didn't seem worth it to wait at the time. With that said the restaurant is small and cozy with a nice ambience. It was just to crowded when we were there and I couldn't see waiting. The sandwiches themselves were quite good. My family and I had 3 different types of sandwiches and they were all good and traveled well. They are also "moderately" priced for NY, a pleasant bonus.

Based on the reviews here we decided to take a walk away from Times Square to visit even though it was quite a walk. It was during hurricane Sandy, it was cold, rainy and windy but we managed to find The Meatball Shop and we were glad we did.

A warm, welcoming, romantic, candlelit ambiance with background music, we had great service from start to end.

The menu is simple and enables you to try a variety of flavours and combinations. We tried a selection of sliders, sauces, a salad and a bolognese pasta dish. For dessert we tried the cookie/ice cream sandwich with the matching sparkling wine. Everything was tasty, well cooked, and we were given a good amount of privacy to chat and enjoy our meal at our own pace.

Went to meatball shop today, was busy when we arrived but just grabbed a seat at the bar. Had classic beef meatballs in spicy sauce with a cookie and ice cream sandwich for dessert! Nearly gave up hope finding TMS when phone ran out off battery but well worth the walk around until stumbling on it. Defiantly worth s visit!!

We had dinner at TMS on New Year's Eve and the food was great! We managed to book a table for 9.30 pm and the wait was reasonable.
We ordered tomato and cheese meatballs and I have to admit the second ones were simply amazing (the tomato version was good too but I prefered the ones with cheese toping. We went for mashed potatoes as a sider which was simply delicious.

The home made icecream was great too!

Perfect place if you are in the Williamsburg area in Brooklyn.
Highly recommended!
