Went for a birthday dinner and it did not disappoint. Everything was delicious - the burrata, the rolls, the duck empanadas, the chicken roulade, and the bavette steak. The cocktails were very good as well. And to finish it off we had the blueberry crumble for dessert, which was divine. The service was great and ambiance was nice. Highly recommend!

We arrived at Meadowsweet for our 9pm confirmed reservation and the restaurant was closed.

Website also indicated that they are open on Sunday.

But the place was dark and a sign was on the door.

We let them know via email and they apologized and gave us some gift certificates. Unfortunately we live in Seattle.

Disappointment experience!
I made a reservation for December 24 with the idea of ​​taking my partner to a Restaurant with Michelin star to celebrate Christmas on our first trip to New York (we are from Paris) and the level was very far from what we expected.
The reservation was at 20:30 (time we arrived) but when entering the restaurant a waiter tells us that our table was not ready yet and if we could wait at the bar since our table was busy. Curious situation, knowing that we had booked towards weeks and that night there was a Christmas menu. Also during time of waiting nobody proposed nor an appetizer or anything. It was as if no one will notice our presence.
Then we went to the table and a really friendly waiter takes us the order.
The entrees were good not to be because of the huge hair in my partner's scallops. The waiter quickly apologizes and they change the plate.
Then we went to the main ones. A waitress is approaching with the desserts and we tell him that we have not eaten the main ones so this error in the service cost us another 30 minutes of waiting to have our dishes.
And then the dessert, without more ...

The service was messy
The food is too abundant that we could not finish our dishes (they were not refined and nothing near the level of this type of restaurants)

The most remarkable detail of this "experience" was that as much I as my partner spent the night and the day after decomposed of the stomach !!!

We can only highlight the good will and attention of the waiter who has not charged us wine and coffee. A detail to remember
All this for a note of $ 220.

I do not recommend this place.
Is not at the level which is qualified by Michelin
There was no kind of Christmas atmosphere despite the fact that the menu was intended to be like its price.
Lack of precision and very banalth flavors.
This criticism has no courage to attack but to express my experience as a client of this beautiful restaurant that differs between photos and reality.

Nice dinner experience, original menu and food was tasty. I would say that overall we enjoyed our dinner but I also did not find it exceptional- the service was friendly but rather impersonal, the place is on the noisy side and tables are close together. Fom reviews/images that I had seen and made me chose this place I was expecting something more intimate, calmer and personal. Also the area is rather dodgy in the evening.

The food at this place is really good -- you can tell they have a Michelin Star in the attention to detail in the dishes through the mixing of flavors and textures and the overall quality of what they serve. This time we went for brunch and everything we had -- crispy artichoke hearts, beef empanadas, burrata and squash salad, cuban sandwich, duck hash -- was truly delicious. The cocktails are REALLY good as well. Service was friendly, knowledgeable, and informative. My one complaint is the noise level -- very high -- but there was a certain exuberance in the crowd that made it okay.

My new favorite brunch spot! Loved the interior, and the playlist. The food was incredible. We loved the burrata with seasonal veggies. The egg sandwich was to die for. Great mimosas. Will definitely be back!

Cocoa pasta is very salty. Also empanadas is salty. The menu and display is creative. The sides for the pork loin is salty as well.
Service is very good. And drinks are very good

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.
