Excellent new selection for the brunch menu. Loved having the French Toast on the menu this time. Plenty of room outside and service was friendly and prompt.

Street noise was an issue. Staff is overly cautious with mask protection at outdoor tables. Could have been more courteous when explaining their overly cautious rules. Subpar overall dining experience.

Food was good but super pricey for what i got. 2 eggs and mushrooms on toast for $19. The $6 Covid cover charge was a bit of a shock , would have preferred to be forewarned. Prob won't go back bc of the high prices.

Meadowsweet is just an amazing outstanding gem in Williamsburg. For those who want to eat super delicious fare in a subtly designed and relaxed atmosphere here, without the rowdy crowds of Bedford Avenue.

Service is nice but I paid $17 for an artichoke salad that was barely an appetizer, let alone entree. The waiter also got our drinks mixed up because apparently not many women order Scotch these days lol

First in-restaurant dining experience. It was thoughtful and safe... there's lots of distance and the wait staff ask that you put your mask on/off as they approach the table. The food is as good as ever... they've maintained their standard of great flavor + innovative twists dishes that make it a special dining experience. I do miss the truffle pasta!

Great food and cocktails. Unfortunately there was a glitch with my OpenTable reservation; they didn’t see the reservation and I had to show them the email. But thankfully there were open tables at that time and the waitstaff was extremely accommodating.

My wife and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary dinner here and were blown away by the flavors. The crispy baby artichokes had just the right amount of lemon it was quite delicious. Highly recommend the pappardelle duck ragout I could have drank that sauce and been satisfied!

I enjoyed the atmospheres. It was very nice and quiet. However, the food was limited. I would have preferred more options and even appetizers. My salmon was great, but would have preferred less green sauce and more sautéed vegetables without it marinating in the green sauce. Overall great experience I give it a 4 star.

I think it was my third or forth time time dining in this restaurant and every time the service and food is spot on! Can’t find correct positive words to describe the experience, that’s how it’s was there! Always recommend this restaurant for any type of dining, you won’t regret and you will definitely receive a food orgasm!

The only reason I put the ambiance so low is that we had to sit outside by the street and there is a sewer grate near where we were sitting and I could smell sewerage when the wind shifted. Luckily this happened at the end of the meal when we were paying the bill and not their fault because of Covid.

The food is really good and they accommodated the restricted diet my friend has (waiter was nice and provided the right suggestions).
However a manager asked us after 1h40 to leave the table to accommodate a large party in a not very nice way... This is not what you're expecting from a 1 star Guide Michelin restaurant. I had to raise my concern to another manager for her to take care of us in a more customer friendly way by offering to move to the bar (with a drink on the house).
