Post co-vid dining outdoors. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. However, they ran out of a dish after we put in our orders and the food took a long while to come out the kitchen and it was really crowded. I sat there hangry for most of my meal. I ended up ordering the burger and it was delicious! I’d dine here again though

Always love coming here. I do think the outdoor dining area could use a bit of an upgrade. The traffic from Broadway was blowing around the canopies a bit, and it felt a little stuffy with the surrounding plastic. Something sturdier is needed. Food was great but service was slightly slower than normal. I appreciated the strict covid-19 protocols, it made me feel safe.

Came here for brunch, as we’ve done many times over the past 4yrs. During the pandemic, the brunch menu has been tweaked and further reduced to 60% of what it was. This is unfortunate and disappointing. We miss the duck hash, tamales and doughnuts.. to name a few.

Outdoor experience needs to be improved. For a restaurant of that caliber, I am unsure why they are offering guests seating in the road with zero protection from car exhaust, wind and rain. We would have had a similar experience sitting on the curb. It was freezing cold and windy, and when we asked to move inside before even being seated, we were declined because we were 5 people; the maximum inside is 4. We were offered absolutely nothing to make the experience more positive. I respect Covid guidelines, but in the end of October, Meadowsweet needs to get their act together.

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!

Food and drinks were decent, but not sure why it’s a Michelin starred.
