The food was absolutely AMAZING! I could bathe in the cheese sauce on the burger, the mushroom mac and cheese was outstanding and the broccoli dip was super yummy. We will definitely be back.

I love Meadowlark Kitchen when I can sit in the main dining/bar area. I’m not a fan of the patio area in the winter. The food was good! I had the brisket and while it included a piece of cornbread, it would have been nice to have had done carrots or turnips with such a hearty plate. My friend had the Meadowlark burger which was amazing, but not even a smattering of chips with it. The appetizers are pretty large portions and we weren’t thrilled with them, so didn’t order to complement the meal. We did request kimchi slaw which was offered with another entree and found it was just julienned veg in soy sauce. This was not kimchi and should not be sold as kimchi.
I do enjoy the atmosphere, the drinks and most of the menu.

Collin was wonderful as a bartender and server overall. The food and drinks were up with fine dining in flavor, the building and feeling they're in are just different. Not bad, mind you, just different. We had the mushrooms, Mac and cheese, and one of the freaking best burgers I've had! These are not for the faint of heart. They are heavy but intricate in their flavor profile. Get the deerhammer and the burger and you'll be right where you want to be. Highly recommend.

Our party of 8 found their food to be really delicious with the exception of the beef which was super dry. When we told the waitress she did not offer to comp the meal. Other than that, the waitress was great, and food delicious!

I Love Meadowlark Kitchen! They are a family owned restaurant/bar, with amazing local, sustainably-sourced food and a great urban atmosphere! Perfect place to start, or end your night on Larimar St.

This was a great place to have a nice dinner and visit before a concert at Larimer Lounge. I would recommend it to anyone. They had a nice selection of sides that accommodated the vegetarian and well as the burger lovers.

I love this place - I don't know why it's not packed. The food and flavors are great and the Mezquito is my all-time favorite cocktail.

The most delicious BLT I’ve ever had. The House white wine was also very nice and dry as promised and a great value.

We all just LOVED the food and cocktails at Meadowlark... it was AMAZING!
The mushroom dish and flank steak (especially) were out of this world!
The atmosphere is "ok" only because it is so small. We were going to sit in the back patio but it was too hot and I was glad only because there are too many things "exposed" that should be hidden making it look a bit untidy like brooms and cans. BUT... the food and drinks were so good that those things quickly faded into the background!!!

We didn’t stay to eat or drink. We arrived and the entire place reeked of pot. It didn’t look like the pictures and we were scared to eat there. There was supposed to outdoor seating. It was a blow mold picnic table that was dirty in the back. The waitress was nice but seemed like she was on something and brought water but then didn’t come back for 15 minutes.

Celebrating with a large group of friends. The food was either really good or really bad. Felt it was way too overpriced for what it was. The waitress only came by a couple of times once we got our food, we were waiting a long time for the check. Probably wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. If you do go the only thing our table liked was the Pad Thai.

We were slightly squished (5 people at a table for 4 despite having a reservation) and the open door and booming music from across the street detracted a bit from the atmosphere. But the cocktails were delicious and the “re-imagined” Pad Thai was out of this world!

Great food and service. Flat iron steak was fantastic, Brussels sprout salad and mozzarella cheese dip with bread is amazing. Their burgers are the best and they ran out of desserts so get there early !!

Our server was amazing! Drinks were tasty... not a lot of variety, but good. Food was not my style, but the French fries were good... and all of our friends who got the hamburger loved it, next time I will try the hamburger

The food was mostly very good, we had the cucumber dip and blt. The DENVER Nuggets were mostly dark meat and not very good however. The ambiance is very low key, nice staff. VERY casual. Parking is a huge pain.

Burger was everything we were led to believe and that's what most people were eating. We also had a mushroom/kale veggie dish that was equally as good. Only disappointment was the Brussel Sprouts that were just very OK. Lots of other places do them better.

We were with my in-laws and one of them is a celiac. The waiter was very accommodating and helpful and also recommended a wine that they really liked. When my in-laws are pacified, the evening goes much better, so we really appreciated the service.

Love the ambiance, fun place to go and good service. The food tasted good but odd as this sounds, I think they’re actually pushing it a bit too far. Some of the food is so rich that it made us both physically ill. The food is creative, but slightly off and almost feels like they’re trying too hard. Hard to explain.

Amazing food, salad with edible flowers and challah knots out of this world, ramen noodle dish in humongous bowl with all kinds of delicious stuff, would need to be a chef to know all that it entails, and sea bass on polenta with pea and carrot purée, I believe. Loved the special mixed drinks, couldn’t decide which to try.
