They strictly follow social distancing with their tables and everyone wears masks. It was a lovely, and surprisingly peaceful, Saturday brunch.

We went out for our anniversary. Our table was on the patio. The gin martini was very good. My wife had the elderflower spritzer which she liked. The beef short rib was delicious as was the coconut curry. For desert, we had coffee with the coconut cake. All-in-all, a very nice night out. Highly recommend.

The first restaurant we have gone to since Covid quarantine. Really enjoyed eating in the back patio outside. Seating was "socially distanced" from other diners; waitress had a mask. Food was great, as always. Glad to be back at French Meadow!

An hour and 20 minutes into sitting there.. with a total of 12 guests... no food. Either the waitress forgot to put our order in or the cooks forgot to make it. Everyone around us had their food. Our drinks took 45 minutes to get. Water was never refilled. Awful experience and will not go back.

We had a very nice meal at the French Meadow with our two children and son in law for a birthday celebration. The food was fresh and the presentation was appealing. For the birthday guest a free dessert. I’d definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and would return myself. Something for everybody. My daughter and son in law are vegans and my wife, son and I are meat lovers.

I'm so happy you chose us for a birthday celebration, and gratified that we made it a memorable experience! Being a place where families can gather and enjoy beautiful meal, even with different diets, is at the core of our mission, so it's truly gratifying to see "mixed food" families like yours coming together and dining with us.

All four of us thought our meal was very good. The Beet Salad and Vegetarian Burger were outstanding. Service was exceptional, but noise level made conversation a challenge for those of us with hearing loss.
