Attentive and knowledgeable staff and fantastic dishes from start to finish. Crispy artichoke starter was amazing as was the flourless chocolate cake! Great value for such outstanding food.

I said it was my dad’s birthday, and they brought out dessert with a candle and free Prosecco for the table! Our waitress was so kind and helpful, and she was very attentive.

The food took a very long time to come out, and the restaurant was extremely warm inside.

Was sat in the back next to a floor fan. Had to sit at an angle because the fan wouldn’t let me pull my chair out. Ordered the chicken sandwich, the egg sandwich, and donuts as an appetizer. All were very underwhelming for the price and reputation of the restaurant. The donuts lacked flavor and tasted ready-made. The fries that came with the entrees consisted mostly of burnt ends. The breakfast sandwiches were okay but for $20 a sandwich they weren’t anything special. I won’t return for brunch but I would try dinner.

Service was good. Attentive and friendly staff. Great music.

This was our first time at Meadowsweet and we can’t wait to go back! Narrowing down what to order was the hard part. We ended up with the rolls, crispy artichokes, beet ravioli, chicken, and duck, as well as some cocktails. Everything was delicious but those beet ravioli were beyond. SO good. Ambiance was relaxed and service was kind. We’re looking forward to our next visit!

I have a lengthy list of food intolerances and it can be very hard to find places that accommodate me. Meadowsweet made it so easy and I’m so grateful. They had my list of food allergies ahead of time and were able to make changes to the exact items on the menu that I wanted to order.

Good but certainly not a Michelin star.
We've been to countless Michelin restaurants throughout the world, but unfortunately this really does not match up to any of them. The star is a bit of a mystery to us.
Everything was "very good", but nothing particularly special.
It's the typical nice and trendy restaurant that you can find in any city, so I wouldn't suggest going out of my way if visiting. There are so many other more unique options in NYC.
And definitely the loudest 1 star we've ever visited (and no, we are not elderly people).

We arrived at 6:45pm for our reservation and was seated in an outdoor “pod” booth which was great. The hostess/manager was lovely. Our waiter, however, was a bit aloof and disappeared for large blocks of time. Our apps arrived in what seemed like a reasonable amount of time. Our dinner did not. After waiting an hour for our entrees, we asked the waiter who said it would be just a few more minutes. Another 15-20 minutes passed when we flagged down the hostess/manager who checked with the kitchen and told us our meal was being plated at that moment. Another 10-15 minutes passed and finally our meals arrived. It was now 8:45 - 2 hours after we were seated. Instead of the lies of the kitchen being backed up (even though tables who ordered after us got their meals first) we wish they had been honest that our waiter forgot to place our meal with the kitchen. What a disappointment! Food was good, but we were so tired and ready to leave that we really didn’t enjoy the meal. They did comp us $36 for the appetizers, but honestly, they should have comp’d the entrees. Won’t be going back anytime soon. $200+ for a dinner that was “meh.”

Still a lovely, lively space but sadly I feel the food itself is not nearly as good as it was the first time I visited (granted, many years ago). Not an exceptional meal, unfortunately.

We had 2 babies & strollers with us - the staff was super accommodating and wonderful even after we were late for our reservation. We live in the neighborhood and frequent the restaurant often, never disappoints. We love this place!
