We came to Denver expecting to attend this establishment for a date night. We arrived and it was a complete party. No place to eat but the back patio. Once we were directed to the patio we waited for a clean table and then waiting 20 mins to be served and get menus. This never happened and we left. This was our first night in Denver and it completely thwarted our evening plans after landing.

Service was good but food was just bad. Super sad and hate to leave a bad review but all of the food was sub par. It looked pretty but we could hardly eat any of it. The burger was ordered medium well and it came out raw. Nuggets were chewy. Dessert sounded amazing and looked beautiful but was so dry we couldn’t eat it. Hate to leave a bad review for a local place but the food was just bad.

Really lovely experience overall. Not a ton of options on the menu but everything looked really good. The presentation and description of the plates was a nice touch, but otherwise the service was nothing to write home about. The food was easily the highlight and particularly the dessert. Definitely worth a visit!

The mushroom and egg dish was a huge hit, as well at the jalapeno dip. We all enjoyed our cocktails and the food was reasonably-ish priced. The only down fall was the smoked brisket. It was on the more expensive side, dry and could have used a more forward sauce.

Love the food so much I dream about it later and the atmosphere is so authentic and kind. Great size portions and lick the plate so good! I only don't like how the bathroom opens right to the dining area but nothing is perfect so a small price to pay :)

Absolutely fantastic food, my favorite is the wild mushroom dish. Meadowlark Kitchen also has some of the best bartenders in town, my favorite house cocktail is the smoked margarita. My family visited and I brought them here to eat, everyone was so happy with their food. Brisket was a big hit!

Amazing food. Loved the jalapeno dip with pretzel bites-so clever, soup with no dairy was amazingly creamy and delicious, and striped bass that we shared was the best I've ever had. Chocolate cake was super moist and delicious. All totally delicious!!

Everything we ate was beautifully prepared and delicious. Heirloom tomato salad could easily have been a meal by itself. Shrimp dish with crab meat and various greens was scrumptious. Brisket as always was superb. To top it off the fresh peach cobbler? with smoked and grilled peaches and homemade peach ice cream was totally amazing. Soo delicious!!!

The host tried keeping us away from the patio area because there was a huge party, but where we sat inside had a giant loud group next to us anyway. I didn't get to see the outdoor seating.

The burgers were excellent! We came through back entrance as that is the wheelchair accessible route. The outdoor space is cozy and perfect temperature (I have been in August and in January, and both times I was compfortable). Everyone enjoyed their food, I would recommend the burgers and stuffed shells. They were out of the Wild Mushrooms, which was what a bunch of us in our party wanted. Would DEFINITELY recommend to anyone visiting Denver.

My husband and I love Meadowlark Kitchen. The food is absolutely amazing! I love that things are homemade and locally sourced. The old-time feel of the building and the way you've repurposed things to protect the back area seating really make the place totally unique. Having high quality food while still being comfortable and casual is what makes you one of my very favorite restaurants in the Denver Area!

We made a reservation for an outdoor table, but but they would not seat us there. It was a hot day, but it was even hotter indoors. Half of the 8 ounce portion of smoked brisket was great. The other half was just fat. No complaints on the other 7 meals. Too uncomfortably hot to stay for dessert.
