With so many choices in New York and Brooklyn, you can get dizzy making dinner plans. We picked Meadowsweet because of the Michelin star rating a few years back and were not disappointed. The limited menu has something for everyone, the service is good, and the surroundings calm but interesting.

Meadowsweet is one of my favorite restaurants for its combination of excellent food, and service, as well as a quiet outdoor seating area.

Crispy baby artichokes we’re crispy and tender, wonderfully bathed in a red pepper glaze. Salmon was perfectly seared/herbed on the outside snd true medium grilled. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. Such an enjoyable evening meal!

Service was great, food was underwhelming to say the least. Overcooked eggs, burnt coffee, egg shell pieces in our eggs. They ultimately comped the coffee and other items, so like I said great service, but we were expecting so much more from the food.

Service was excellent although host seemed to be confused about our reservation when we showed up. Food was exquisite! Ceviche was refreshing and very refined. Octopus was very tasty and spiced to our tastes. I had the wagyu bavette and the vegetables (roasted sunchokes, maitake mushroom, and potato puree) were out of this world! Cocktails were great too!
It was extremely noisy in the back room due to a large party (24+). That said, Stephanie - the owner - had called me before to offer to switch our table in the back to another one outside. We declined, but regretted in the end. Her gesture showed how much they care for their customers! They truly deserve the 1 star Michelin for the quality of the food and the overall customer experience!

A great place for brunch that doesn't get the insane crowds like other places around here do on a weekend, and I actually enjoyed it much more than those places! I think dinner is more popular here and I haven't tried that yet, but brunch was solid and I'd come here again.

The food was excellent. Our party of three ordered several different dishes and everyone thought their dish was very good. Service was good too, and we were not rushed out. (Left a very good tip as a thank you too.) Noise level was very high, so conversation was conducted leaning forward and speaking very loudly. That was really the main downside to an otherwise outstanding experience. This restaurant might be best experienced on a non-Friday night!

Shared about 7 or 8 different things off the menu and everything was delicious. The Duck Ragu and Cheeseburger are probably at the top of my favorites list. Cocktails were crafty and all really good

Meadowsweet serves delectable food in a relaxed, elegant space. The service is excellent, the cocktails delicious, and the vibe is convivial. Although I live in Harlem, I will be making a point of returning to Meadowsweet as soon as I can. It's well worth the trip, wherever you live.

I took my best friend here for her birthday and it was a lovely experience! The food was amazing, we ended up splitting a few of the starters and one entree and that was plenty of food. Very fresh ingredients and interesting combinations. For her birthday, they gave us each a glass of champagne and a dessert to split. Lovely staff!

Meadowsweet never disappoints. My only "issue" was in only being able to secure a reservation very early (6:00 pm) and arriving at an empty restaurant. Even when we left a bit over an hour later, restaurant was only 1/4 full. Food, and service, were fabulous.
