We arrived late during a downpour and the United Nation's General Assembly. The hostess was friendly and kind, asked us for proof of vaccination, and then let us be seated at our table (despite one member of our party not having arrived yet).

The service was fast without feeling rushed, the waitress was friendly and helpful. And the food was delicious.

We’re so happy to have gone to the Mean Fiddler, it was a wonderful way to start a fantastic night!

Went for bottomless brunch. Drink sizes are super small. Waitress was attentive, refills promptish but after we paid and still had drinks and food she turned very rude and told us we needed to leave because they needed the table. Gratuity was include and $10 a person. Didn’t appreciate to prompt dismissal after we paid.

Very fun spot for a bottomless mimosa brunch, and a block away from Times Square. Plenty of options for their bottomless brunch including (but not limited to) High Noons, Mimosas, and Bellinis. Fun atmosphere and friendly staff. Get the nachos!!!

My new favorite place for brunch in the city! Love the variety of drinks in the bottomless option, plus you can upgrade for $10 for even more drink options. Food was delicious (try the truffle fries). The DJ played great music and the ambiance was fun but not so loud that you couldn’t talk to your group. Can’t wait to come back again!

I did bottomless dinner here and it was so fun! The drinks were really good and there was a DJ playing great songs :) the food was also so so food - I got the buffalo chicken sliders.

The only issue I had was that online it says bottomless is until 9pm, but when we got there at 8pm they said it ended at 8pm. They still let us do 90 minutes of bottomless tho and it was very fun!!

The Mean Fiddler had great music and vibes, and very attentive and kind servers. The Mojito and Magner's Cider are great options for drinks. Mozzarella sticks, chicken sandwich, and beef sliders are all super tasty. The food is a little pricey, but not extremely so and definitely worth it for an outing with friends.

the food was decent, nothing fancy. its not really filling unless you get a burger which comes with fries. If you get the sliders, they dont come with fries and a side order of fries is $10 (NOT worth it) if you do the bottomless brunch they have plenty of drink options and they'll keep bringing more if you ask. the music was bomb though! they played a lot of hits from 2016 and it was a vibe. i feel like it has the potential to get lit but covid is preventing that

Our waitress was great and the food was delicious!! A little noisy, but the expected atmosphere. The food took quite a while to come out, but it was well worth the wait. The honey BBQ chicken sandwich was the best chicken sandwich I have ever had!

Server personality was good but not very informed on drinks, asked for a Cadillac Margarita she did not know what it was, she went and asked the bartenter if they could make it, came back weak and no Grand Marnier, asked for a shot of grand marnier, they insisted it was added, I just wanted an extra shot so I could add it, food was satifactory. The place was very noisy, good place if you like crowds and noise.

This place is so energetic and fun. If you want a quiet place to dine.. this is not for you. Our server Ashley was the best!! So sweet and very attentive. I celebrated my birthday with 7 of my friends and it did not disappoint. The only downside is if you do the bottomless drinks.. it’s only 90 mins of drinks and fun. Time flys when you’re having fun. I recommend it!!!

Fish tacos I had were good but lack some seasoning, the fiddler punch tasted like it was just juice, it’s like it was just juice and no alcohol. The DJ played really good music and the energy in there was amazing. I also had the Fiddler nachos with chicken and that was really good. My wife had the fiddler burger and it was juicy and delicious. The frozen margaritas were delicious.

Everything was basically ok, the staff was nice and the hostess was very accommodating but the food had no flavor and the drinks were pretty weak. it’s more of a party place than somewhere you would actually want to have good food or drinks. I had the avocado toast and it didn’t really taste like much, and the bread was soggy. Probably wouldn’t return, but I’m also not very surprised based on the proximity to Times Square.

I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience at the mean fiddler. We ran into some issues with traffic and arrived later than anticipated but the staff was so understanding and accommodating. We were a group of 15 which is not an easy party to handle but they did this with ease!! Our waitress Savannah was personable and really made the entire brunch great. The food came out quickly and it was delicious. The drinks were non-stop and price for the bottomless brunch was more than reasonable. Overall the mean fiddler made my experience and birthday celebration one to remember and I will be coming back. I was very impressed and i would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good time for a reasonable price in Manhattan!

Nice experience, good drinks and food, and very friendly staff. But the food took an hour to arrive, and server did not come around often enough for our 90 minute bottomless dinner, so we were not able to get our money’s worth as much as we had hoped.
