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!

As always, the menu selection was excellent, as was the service and overall vibe. Meadowlark is one of our favorite places to go for a great meal and friendly service.

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.

Could use better images of what the floor plan looks like. I thought we’d be in a more relaxed ambiance but instead was seated right in front of the entrance with a snotty server who was a bit rude. The margarita drink was delicious.

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.
