Food and Service was absolutely incredible. Definitely some of the best food you can find in Brooklyn. The pricing was fine for what you ordered however you do have to pay for bread which is a little insulting but being the industry is holding on by a thread you just can’t be judgmental. I was sat in the corner with my partner and was requested to wear a mask when I wasn’t eating, which I was fine with. I felt welcomed by the staff as they made sure I got my 2nd cocktail at the same time I got my food. Overall I give the establishment a 9.9/10

As always. I am extremely pleased with the service and the food!! That friggin’ artichoke salad!! Yum! Surprisingly, the flourless chocolate cake was pretty tasty. And the chocolate crumble under the ice cream was also delish.

Our food and drinks were spectacular! Our service was also phenomenal. Only wish that the outdoor heaters were a little stronger, or maybe that there were more that don't have to be shared between tables.

The food was incredible. We went there for my wife's birthday. We got the porchetta, the cauliflower, and the pasta and shared it among four people. It was 40 degrees and we bundled up. Good food, good drinks, and good friends provided the necessary warmth against the elements.

We visited Meadowsweet for the first time and were extremely pleased with food and service. We sampled the Brunch Menu and selection was well balanced between light dishes and full meal plates. All served food was superb quality and beautifully presented. We were sitting outside on a very windy day and the restaurant had a nice arrangement between few heated tables on the sidewalk and sheltered tables at the curbside. All personnel was very professional, making sure that the Covid19 regulations are respected while making patrons very comfortable. It can not be better place to spend time with friends and family even on a cold winter day. We applaud the Meadowsweet team for putting so much effort to secure safe environment without sacrificing comfort, with fantastic wood and great service.

Having read it is a Michelin-star restaurant, we were very much looking forward to an exceptional meal. The butternut squash burrata appetizer dip was swimming in oil and overpowered with garlic and the wagyu beef bavette with creamed spinach and fingerling potatoes were all so rich (cooked in loads of butter and/or oil), it was awful. In this day and age, it is not necessary to drench high-quality ingredients in so much fat unless you can't cook.

The food at Meadowsweet is absolutely top tier, we made reservations for a birthday dinner, and ended up re-ordering additional food three times! My girlfriend had the burrrata, which was one of the best she ever had. I loved the mushroom pasta and the empanadas with green sauce. We were still hungry and ordered another course - i loved the Wagyu; perfectly cooked and flavored. The only downside was the cold weather that didn’t go very well with the limited outside dining facilities. Some wind shielding and extra heat lamps would’ve been welcome. An absolute recommendation for their food - and we will definitely be back for indoor dining as soon as it becomes available again!

Service was great. Felt clean and safe. The cockails weren't great; the steak was very good. The other dish we got was vegetarian and not great. The veg was undercooked/basically raw and too hard to cut with the knives provided. The knifework on the garnish left it inedible (way too thick).

We were sitting outside so service was a bit less responsive than we'd expect (e.g., had to ask for condiments three times before they came), but food was great, and that's most important!

Phenomenal food with OK service... kind of annoyed with having to put my mask on everytime a server comes near the table (even though they have their own mask), but otherwise a decent experience. The wagyu and chicken entrees were amazing as were the empanadas and fennel sausage pasta.

hands-down the most annoying place I’ve been to during the pandemic. Their mask rules were ridiculous. They expect you to keep it on at all times unless you are taking a bite of your food or a sip from your drink. The server would stop far away from your table and request you put it on prior to approaching you. it made me very uncomfortable and ruined the experience. The food was very good, however I was very disappointed at the size of the chicken thigh on my chicken sandwich. It was by far the smallest one I’ve had in Williamsburg, and trust me I’ve had every chicken sandwich from every restaurant, this one being the last to try, and ironically the most expensive. i have no problem paying an absurd amount of money for my food but only if it’s worth it. i will not be going back there.

Post co-vid dining outdoors. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. However, they ran out of a dish after we put in our orders and the food took a long while to come out the kitchen and it was really crowded. I sat there hangry for most of my meal. I ended up ordering the burger and it was delicious! I’d dine here again though

Always love coming here. I do think the outdoor dining area could use a bit of an upgrade. The traffic from Broadway was blowing around the canopies a bit, and it felt a little stuffy with the surrounding plastic. Something sturdier is needed. Food was great but service was slightly slower than normal. I appreciated the strict covid-19 protocols, it made me feel safe.

Came here for brunch, as we’ve done many times over the past 4yrs. During the pandemic, the brunch menu has been tweaked and further reduced to 60% of what it was. This is unfortunate and disappointing. We miss the duck hash, tamales and doughnuts.. to name a few.

Outdoor experience needs to be improved. For a restaurant of that caliber, I am unsure why they are offering guests seating in the road with zero protection from car exhaust, wind and rain. We would have had a similar experience sitting on the curb. It was freezing cold and windy, and when we asked to move inside before even being seated, we were declined because we were 5 people; the maximum inside is 4. We were offered absolutely nothing to make the experience more positive. I respect Covid guidelines, but in the end of October, Meadowsweet needs to get their act together.

Street noise was an issue. Staff is overly cautious with mask protection at outdoor tables. Could have been more courteous when explaining their overly cautious rules. Subpar overall dining experience.

Food was good but super pricey for what i got. 2 eggs and mushrooms on toast for $19. The $6 Covid cover charge was a bit of a shock , would have preferred to be forewarned. Prob won't go back bc of the high prices.
