Our first experience at Meadow was AMAZING! Great atmosphere, the wood burning fire on the patio & the blanket you provided made it so cozy! The burger is now our new favorite in the city and the fried chicken will stand up to any southern grandmothers (just tell mine that I said that) they even got the greens down pact!
Meadow is a great find in San Antonio and definitely our new neighborhood spot!
Ps... the bartender here actually knows how to make a proper old fashioned!! Score;)
First time visit. Appetizers and small plates for table sharing or lite meal. Great favor with all of our choices. Had the pork loin for main course and was very tasteful. Heard no complaints from my other 3 diners. Will go back and experiment some more.
Great little neighborhood gem. Outstanding service that makes you feel like a regular. Check it out if you haven’t.
Expanded brunch menu. Yay! Can heartily recommend the smoked salmon. Yum!
Absolutely delicious. We chose to take our time ordering the doughnuts and their appetizer toast. I had coffee that was scrumptious. We were nearly full but chose to order entrees anyway, the bunch pizza was so savory the the flavors working perfectly together. Also got the chicken biscuit with sausage sausage gravy- the chicken was cooked perfectly and the gravy had a wonderful consistency.
It was a wonderful brunch with a lovely atmosphere.
Excellent food and service!!
The food is vegetable forward which is why I chose it and everything was underdone and unseasoned. They were also out of the first 2 bottles of wine we ordered and they only have about 7 to choose from. On the positive side the chocolate tart dessert was a star dish.
The food was very good. The lighting inside of the restaurant is terrible. The overhead can lighting really does a disservice to the ambiance. Also it needs better signage to find the restaurant within the maze of shops in other restaurants. Overall it's good enough to definitely merit a second visit.
Best new restaurant in San Antonio
Wonderful dinner and wine pairing. They went out of their way to pair beer with the food simply because my husband is not a wine drinker. What an amazing team!
I really wanted to like this place given it's legacy. We went for NYE and did the tasting menu with the wine pairing. The price for both was reasonable compared to other places and the menu was interesting.
It started with us showing up at the reserved time and having to wait while they sat up the table (even though the restaurant was half empty). Everyone was polite, but everything was off. They skipped over one course (and delivered the wrong food even for that course). The wine pairing wasn't - we'd get the wine then wait about 20 minutes for the course to appear. Every course was this way. Apparently it wasn't just us - the couple at the adjacent table was experiencing the same problem and it seemed to be systemic.
For an evening with a limited menu, they really didn't have their act together - the management, the wait staff, or the kitchen. (Three different people ended up bringing us our food and there were only two of us - it's like no one has experience running a restaurant).
The celery soup was very good. Everything else wasn't bad, but was just OK.
This is a very rough start for a restaurant in a niche location. Unfortunately, I don't think they'll make it through the year.
Really enjoyed the new year's 6-course meal with wine pairings.
The cabbage pancakes were divine. Not too cakie. Garnished with cilantro and mint. Perfect. Striped bass was delish. The black eyed peas and rice were like risotto. Fried chicken was fabulous.
Great date night! Amazing cornbread with honey-lard-butter, broccoli, and fried chicken with collard greens. Fast, attentive service. Highly recommend!
Nice place with good ambiance and value. We were not impressed by the service or pairing selection during a wine + prix fixe but a bit of alcohol and some good company can go a long way.
The only negative was a very tough and stringy New York strip. Almost inedible. All other food very good.
Our first experience here. We were looking for something new to try for Christmas Eve. This was meant to be an immediate family "special occasion" dinner. The menu was basically a price fixe with 4 courses and a choice of 1 of 3 entrees. My issue was related to the service. It should be understood by the staff that Christmas Eve is special occasion and my sense is that they should be going above and beyond to impress. My number 1 restaurant pet peeve is observing a table that was seated after me (by at least 15 minutes) being served before me. This included the main course which were the same dishes that we had ordered at our table. I believe that this was due to the "attentiveness" level of their server versus ours. Once we finally received our main course, we were nearly finished before the server returned to the table to see how the food was. My stepson did not receive the "side" that he ordered and we had to ask twice for the waiter to bring him a soda and he never offered a refill.
So having entered into this with every intention of being generous especially due to people being required working on Christmas Eve, I was mentally reducing the tip with every annoyance during the dinner. When we received the check, that's when I realized that they were including a 20% gratuity. Now maybe I missed that somewhere but of course the waiter knew and that's when I understood why he probably wasn't so concerned about the quality of service. I certainly don't have a problem with a 20% tip but I expect the server to earn it.
Bottom line is that the food was good, no complaints there but, I have had better service in many many restaurants that I had much lower expectations of.
Santa themed brunch was amazing. Free photos with Santa, cookie decorating and Holiday Cocktails. Food was Delish! Try the fried chicken, be prepared for it is WELL seasoned. The biscuit sandwich was huge. Grits with onion broth were super tasty, could've been served warmer, but very tasty.
Third time to Meadow Eatery and first dinner. It’s every bit as good and the awesome brunch. The chicken is next level delicious. Creative dishes like the pasta or pickled veggies make the experience memorable. Solid entrees round out a terrific dining experience. Can’t wait to go back.
What a nice place to have a weekend meal with the family! The service and ambiance were amazing. It definitely captured the comfort food experience, as the cornbread and fritters started things off right. We enjoyed the fried chicken and vegetable plate for our main courses. With a one year old, we were happy to see another family there with a little one also. We highly recommend the experience and will definitely be back for many more!
We had the fried chicken which was prepared well and was tasty. However there was only one skimpy side portion (very small) of greens which I believe was kale. Taste of the side was just ok. There was no bread/biscuits accompanying the meal. Meal needed another side such as mashed pot or some other veggie such as corn. We left the restaurant hungry which is not good. Our bill, with happy hour drinks, one appetizer and 3 meals was 150.$. Not worth it by any means.
Atmosphere is nice so that’s a plus.
In summary, overpriced and you leave hungry
I hosted a business dinner for 11 and the entire experience was fantastic. Creative menu options with something for everyone to enjoy, even the less adventurous eaters had delicious options.
Everyone enjoyed the exceptional food, drinks, and casual atmosphere.
Hope to see Meadow gain an enthusiastic following as we need unique offerings in this part of town. You should totally treat yourself to this experience.
Food was fantastic! Every bite was unique and delicious. They are still working out some kinks in service, but everyone was so friendly. Highly recommend!
The fried chicken was excellent! We really enjoyed the cabbage pancake too! It sounds weird but it was delicious. Very good cocktails. Service was very attentive. Nice casual feel to the place. Some food was just OK. We will be going back. If you are looking for a casual place to hang out with friends for food and drink, this is the place.
Second time and still very very impressed. Cabbage, pork belly and fried egg amazing
Cher’s plate amazing. Corn fritters super amazing
I have only gone once, for Sunday brunch. Disclaimer - I was with someone with some 'press' recognition. However, we ordered off the menu and had a great, casual, brunch. I asked for an egg over-medium instead of the menu 'sunny side up' and they did it perfectly. They have a good wine menu and I was looking for a dry rose'. The one I asked about - the server immediately told me was semi-dry and that if I wanted really dry (I did) she would recommend this other wine. I give big kudos when a server actually knows the wine list/menu items well enough to answer questions. That seems simple but is not common in practice. Oh, I would recommend the 'State Street Biscuit with fried chicken, egg, and sausage gravy'. Another winner is the cheese fries with bacon - sort of a Poutine, very tasty. Go, you will have fun!
Sunday brunch was the second time I’ve eaten at Meadow and it was wonderful. I had the ribeye and scrambled eggs pizza which was so delicious and my friend had the biscuit Benedict that she raved about and I’ll try next time. The staff was outstanding on all counts and I’m looking forward to returning soon.
We went there to celebrate our son’s birthday and we sat for 15 min without anybody to come and take drink orders from us. We had to call the hostess who walk around for another 5 min before she came back with water and a promise that our waitress was on the way. Another 5 min went by and we had to wave a different hostess to help us out, she took our drink orders and some appetizers. The drinks came back in 5 min but one was wrong my husbands was right and mine did not make it to the table because it was being “shaken” as we spoke, it took 10 more minutes. By now we are 40 min. in and the hostess came to let us know there was no more lettuce for the tartar and also they have run out of stakes so my son had to switch his order. Finally the tartar came and it was great but the cheese plate and the waitress did not make it so by then (1hr) we decided it was time for us to get up and leave the restaurant. The sad part is that the people behind us were thinking about it too and they told us they consider to let us know before we sat down that the service was to slow.
The hostess was very kind and apologetic but when you are celebrating a birthday the last thing we want is to sit down at a table not being helped.
Maybe it would have been better if they had let us know they were behind and we could have make the decision either to stay or leave before being seated.
The food at Meadow was good, but the service was very lacking.
Nice cocktail, beer, and wine list. Lots of shareable plates make it really easy to share and experiment with some new flavors. Dishes themselves were interesting with Southern influences. Execution of the dishes could have been stronger, and service could have been more attentive. But overall a good experience that I would expect to get even better as this restaurant gets some more experience under its belt.
Tried them for Sunday brunch. Very welcoming and relaxing. Such a simple thing but their basted egg was outstanding as was the fried chicken leg. Sausage gravy and biscuits was good but just not to my personal taste as I prefer a less chewy crust and less dense gravy. Will definitely return for dinner. Oh, yes, also appreciated the mimosa and good coffee.
We had a double date dinner at Meadow and it was perfect. Everything we ordered from our starters to our meal was delicious. We could not stop eating the pimento cheese that came with the cornbread! Can’t wait to go back!
Great happy hour drinks, wine and food! Also shared fried chicken, a pizza and a cheeseburger.all very good!! We'll definitely be back and bring more friends!!
Excellent service, highly recommend
We had a great time at Meadow! The cornbread starter had jalapeño pimento cheese, which is a favorite of mine, and it didn’t disappoint. As other reviewers have mentioned, the fried chicken was top notch! My husband got the cabbage pattie with a fried egg and pork belly. It sounded so strange, but it was a great combination. We got the chocolate chess pie for dessert, which was ok, but not the best thing we’d eaten. Overall, I think this will become a favorite of ours!
Meadow is my new favorite place in San Antonio. The food is seasonal and delicious with great drinks and appetizers during happy hour. The ambiance is perfect! It was not patio weather when we went, but I can’t wait to hang out there on a nice evening. Inside there is fun music in the background, but you can still have a dinner conversation with your date ;)
Overall, I would say that this restaurant needs time. With only a month or so under its belt, I think that there is a significant amount of potential here. My experience started with a waiter (I couldn't tell whether he was our waiter or the busboy) who tried to clear two of the place settings on our table, but ended up dropping utensils on the floor. Being that I was here for brunch, I ordered a Bloody Mary (which restaurant that is open for brunch isn't prepared for a patron to order this drink?), which took too long to receive. I think they had to do a Google search for the recipe. Our experience then moved to a brunch starter -- corn fritters. I was excited by the prospect of a delicious corn fritter, which is accompanied by "Nduja marmalade. The fritters were okay at best. They lacked seasoning and definitely needed the marmalade to make them acceptable. Next was my plate of grits Barton Springs mill grits and a poached egg. Okay, you got me. If my experience was based solely on this dish I would have given this restaurant 5 stars. Delicious! My dining companion ordered the apple butter, caramel french toast. Looked great. Tasted okay, but was slightly burned. Come on, there weren't that many people in the restaurant. Take your time and do it right. Finally, the restaurant lighting. What can I say -- I don't want to eat in a hospital environment! Change the light bulbs, invest in some lighting and create a more welcoming mood. The food has tremendous potential and I would love to return. That said, I think I will wait until some changes are made.
Can not say enough about the food and service. Extremely helpful and enthusiastic waitstaff. Every thing we tried was delicious. The fried chicken leg was a surprise on the menu and a great addition to the smoked fish salad. Katz coffee was fantastic and our waitress never let me run out. The meal began with a poached egg on toast with pickled tomatoes and ended with wood oven French toast. Both will be repeated on our many future brunch dates. I can’t wait to return.
We sat outside! Perfect atmosphere. Not noisy. Nice fire. My family is extremely picky.
We had gluten allergies and soy allergies and the staff went overboard (in a good way) to make sure we were all happy! And we were.
Cornbread was gluten free and delicious with pimento cheese and creamy butter!
The drinks were all good. We were all pleased.
We had the pork loin, fried chicken (omg!), pancake and shrimp!
Meadow seems like a great new offering to San Antonio with a few minor kinks to work out. They were freshly opened, so while there were some slow service woes, I'm guessing it's just because they're still getting the flow down. Overall the food was good, the cornbread was a bit bland but the accompaniments were spot on. The fried chicken & honey hot sauce I ordered for my main was excellent, and the mahi mahi my gal ordered was also pretty tasty. Good drinks too! I'll likely be back, but maybe for brunch & once they've had a little more time to get established.
