    Our experience at Meadowsweet was filled with one disappointment after another. We were seated an hour after our reservation time (3pm for a 2pm res), had to order immediately upon seating because kitchen was closing, numerous items unavailable, and food arrived cold and varied quality. The whole experience was strange and disappointing. We've been to the restaurant before and understand this experience was probably an anomaly.

    Very friendly host The apps we got were great. But the positives end there. Our waiter didn't care that we were there. He didn't come to table for 15 minutes. At one point he even pushed my arm out of the way at one point. I'd avoid this place till they can figure out their service.

    We dined at Meadowsweet in celebration of a friend’s birthday, and had a perfect evening. The service was friendly, prompt and knowledgeable, and everything we ordered was scrumptious. Will 100% return again.

    Amazing value for the price. I am not sure one can find a 1-star (Michelin) restaurant at that price level in NYC or any other large city around the world. In addition, you get that experience in a very informal and local eating place atmosphere, with a very efficient, professional and friendly service you can expect from such a place. Really a great experience end to end.

    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.
