If I didn’t live on the other end of Brooklyn, I would be eating here ALL the time!! Highly recommend checking this place out. The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming, the food is delicious. They recommend putting your entire order in at once but they do a fabulous job of spacing it out. I’m already dying to go back.

The dinner was phenomenal. I can’t wait to go back. My only issue was that it was quite cold as everytime the front door opened there was a draft through the restaurant. Other than that it was great all around.

Service was average as our waiter looked like he rolled right out of bed and didn’t have a whole lot to add. We asked for warm syrup with our French toast and was told it wasn’t an option, without any explanation.

The fries were cold and the breakfast sandwich was average. Duck hash and French toast were great.

Great menu and service. The cooking was exemplary and there were really interesting flavour combinations. Cocktail list also excellent and imaginative.

Overall, a great experience. I would say the tables were slightly too close together, which along with what was perhaps an especially vocal set of punters made for a slightly louder atmosphere than ideal.

Recommended but perhaps more for a long, slow lunch than a dinner.

I was there with my family in a Saturday night with a reservation. We waited to get in. They did not ask us for vaccination proof until we offered. Once seated service was both underwhelming and at times bad (pouring tap water into glasses filled with sparkling could not get a single cocktail order to the right person, etc). The food was ok. Not memorable. Portion sizes were not generous. We waited 20 min to place our order and then after a $400+ bill and generous tip we were asked to leave while there were 6 four tops (we were a party of 4) vacant inside and there was room outside and at the bar. Very disappointing. Will not return.

The service is impeccable and friendly. The food albeit using amazing ingredients and being beautifully plated, was over seasoned: I would preferred it if the kitchen held back on the garnishment of sea salt of top of dishes until asked or done at table side. We will be back again!

Everytime I go, it is wonderful. The food got them the Michelin Star (and it’s clear why) but the staff are the real stars - funny, accommodating, reasonable. 10/10

The manager and our waitress were amazing. We had to wait a little bit for our table and they took great care of us. I had friends in town visiting on their birthday and they really enjoyed themselves. Food as always was terrific. Staff also gets 10/10.

A little drafty up by the front door, but when the first app arrived, my wife and I were wowed by the flavor, and every dish to follow just built on that! Our server was friendly and helpful and we will definitely be returning for another meal soon.

Meadowsweet offered exceptional service and great food options. We ordered Salmon and the Pork Loin. The portions are plentiful but not intense so that our 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, and dessert rounded up a great amount of food. Nothing I ordered was underwhelming. I don’t think you can go wrong with dining at meadowsweet. Service was amazing.

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.
