    Fabulous Brunch- everything was yummy with terrific recommendations from the very knowledgeable staff; bartender & server. Atmosphere is understated contemporary farmhouse. Very elegant, nice food preparation, we tried 6 different dishes and everything was equally delicious…

    Our party of 6 visited Meadowsweet to celebrate a college graduation. From the time we arrived, the staff was very attentive and even had a few extra surprises in store for us. We took our wonderful server's advice on many of our selections and were not led astray. Standouts included the fried green tomatoes, chorizo pasta (can't remember the name) and the duck breast. In addition, every single dessert was wonderful, but the rhubarb crumble was the standout. One of our favorite things was the attentive staff and their desire to help us celebrate an important night with special touches and extra attention. We will definitely return!

    doesn’t make sense that this place has a michelin star. Food was okay (not great) but the service was inconsistent and hard to get their attention. the noise level was insane like you can’t even hear the person at your table. It was fine for a meal but not a great date. “wagyu” beef empanadas - no better than street empanadas from a truck. Come to think of it, it doesn’t really make sense to cook wagyu like this because it is completely smothered in sauce within the empanada. wagyu is supposed to be eaten plain or with minimal sauce as all the flavor comes from the natural fatty marble. not worth it at all. sea bass - fine, looked good. the flavor was lacking as fish is a soft clean taste but the sauce was dairy based and creamy. should have had something sharper or acidic. wagyu steak - probably the best thing on the table but it’s not like the competition was fierce. 2 slabs of steak with a fried potato. sauce was good and complimented the flavors. the steak was cooked appropriately as we requested medium rare. the cocktails were good. i would consider coming back just for the bar and get dinner elsewhere.

    I called them prior to arrival that it was my husband’s birthday and would like a candle on the desert we would order. The staff told me that they toke the note and would do so. However, nothing happened. It should not have happened for a Michelin star restaurant.

    The menu changes frequently, but if the beet salad with the kumquats and goat cheese is featured, it was truly very, very special. The menu selections are thoughtful and well conceived. The other standouts were the olive oil rolls, empanadas, the delicata squash & burrata, the spring pea ravioli and the duck. So, so good! The service to our little sidewalk pod was excellent, which we really appreciated. Don't miss this wonderful neighborhood spot.

    We had a great experience here, the food was just as amazing as the service. With the amount of different restaurant options there are in NYC, sometimes we are hesitant to return to places more than once. But we’re so excited to come back here and try more of their delicious and unique menu.

    Meets its own very high standards for cuisine. Excellent wine list. Beer list, however, is a bit too millennial--need some core central european classic options.

    My friends and I went to celebrate a birthday, we were super excited to be there and to try all the food. We weren’t even greeted warmly or with smiles, the staff was cold and unfriendly. Being the only table of POC women felt super uncomfortable and like we were being watched. The server assigned to our table was nice but we waited so long for drinks, to place our dinner order even to receive water. All the other waitstaff shot us dirty looks all night and kept rolling their eyes every time they passed our table.

    Very delicious! My only complaint is that it wasn't that busy when I was there and it took quite a lot of effort to get my unlimited coffee refilled. The staff however was friendly and helpful when you could catch them and the food was very delicious, especially the crispy artichoke and burrata/squash starters.

    We went for a Sunday family brunch and had one, but more so because of the company, not the dining experience. The space is very nice and well-appointed with a menu that has options for the pickiest members of our group. The coffee was unanimously disliked by everyone that ordered it - which on a Sunday morning is incredibly disappointing. The donuts were delicious and a fantastic start. Otherwise, the experience just seemed meh. No one complained about their meal, but no one raved either. We were not a lingering group by any means but the whole experience felt a bit rushed. Overall good, but not great.

    Came here for my birthday dinner (second time at this restaurant). The food is incredible and the menu changes seasonally which is fun. The spanish octopus and burrito were the best appetizers. For my main course, I had the black sea bass which was perfectly cooked. Others at my table had the duck which they loved. Would go here again.
