    Although we weren’t approached or acknowledged for a while after coming in - despite having a reservation and arriving as they opened (6:05) - the service once we sat down was very good. And the food is absolutely amazing. The green curry, Scottish salmon blew us away - some of the best fish I’ve had in NY. Meadowsweet’s dishes mange to work in harmony while being so multidimensional. Try the flourless cake too if you get the chance, such excellent baking!

    The food here was amazing. For starters we ordered the olive rolls, fried green tomatoes, shisito peppers, and a lamb sausage special. For the mains most of our table ordered the wagyu beef and one person ordered the pan roasted chicken. Everything was incredible. Cocktails were quite special too (I recommend letters from paris) and the flourless chocolate cake was a banging dessert. The service was notable too - our server was extremely attentive and yet nearly invisible. It’s easy to see why this places has a Michelin star. I highly recommend going here for a special dining experience.

    The appetizers were all very good and tasty. The entrees were good also but the chicken I felt was ordinary and slightly uninteresting . I’m not from Brooklyn and won’t go out of my way to eat here however if they relocate to UES I would try again .

    My husband and I loved it here. Small restaurant in the Williamsburg area. My husband had scottish salmon and I have fennel sausage. The sauces were complex and pleasing to our generally SOUTHERN palates... The cocktail recommendations by our server were also on point! Definitely recommend.

    My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary here and we were treated with a glass of complimentary champagne. We had shared the sourdough bread with pumpkin seed butter as well as the pasta for starters, then we both had the American wagyu steak for our entree. The atmosphere inside is quiet and we both really enjoyed the music playlist that was playing in the background (a good mix of hip hop and r&b tracks by Kanye west, Khalid, Erykah Badu, etc.) Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with my first time dining here and the experience at meadowsweet definitely makes its Michelin Star rating well deserving!

    With regards to the quality of the food, I have no notes. Everything we tasted was absolutely excellent and well-deserving of the the Michelin Star they've received. I do have a few disappointing notes on ambiance/service, albeit small things: 1) Our waiter was switched out in the middle of our dining experience. While this doesn't bother me, our new waiter's first question to us was "how are the noodles?," as we was referring to the Fettuccini with Blue Crab. I'm being picky, but this is an unpolished question. Noodles are for children. At a high-end establishment, I think that the staff should look like they know what dishes are on the table. 2) We were sitting near the kitchen, however the entire restaurant was way too hot for a July 9 reservation. The temperature made us feel sleepy and overall detracted from the experience. 3) Lastly, I think that the men's room could use a little updating. It wasn't very clean, which again, you wouldn't expect at a restaurant that maintains such a high standard for their food.

    We had a wonderful time celebrating my husband’s 30th birthday! We got seated right away and they greeted us each with a glass of champagne which was so nice! Our server was awesome, attentive and personable. The food here is amazing! We started with the sourdough boule, the shishito peppers and the burrata which has fresh peaches- all delicious. Then we split the cauliflower main and it was the star of the show- perfectly cooked and seasoned so well. We also had cocktails which were refreshing and delicious. Definitely will be back!

    Outstanding evening at Meadowsweet celebrating the first night of our honeymoon. The staff were absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make our special night very memorable. We will never forget the little touches and complimentary drinks, which were so generous. The food was also incredible - we tried the duck parpadelle, tajarin with truffle (my favourite!), chicken and bavette - all beautifully cooked. Cocktails and wine were also fantastic. Very cool spot as well. Thanks again Meadowsweet for a night we’ll never forget
