We ate with some friends at Meadowood and truly enjoy our meal. The dining room was beautiful, the service impeccable and the food was innovative, intriguing and delicious. My only complaint is that I think the chef is trying to be more creative then necessarily focusing in on his flavors. Having said that I am splitting hairs, if the presentation... More

If you are looking for a Michelin star experience, go some place else. Go to French Laundry. I have eaten at wonderful restaurants of this level all over the world and this is the first one that I have had such a strong reaction to and will never go back to. I was with a group of 20+ people and... More

For my wife's birthday we went to The Restaurant at Meadowood and sat at the Chefs Counter. In a word this is Epic. The Counter has a commanding view of the entire kitchen. You are seated in front of the pass. You see the orchestrated ballet of service, expediting the food and frankly the drama of running a 3 Michelin... More

The Meadowood is a culinary experience, the food is prepared in interesting and unusual ways. Everything was delicious, and even though we were worried a few times, each bite was extraordinary! The menu is selected for you, price fixe style. You either have the $225 and 11 courses or $500 and 20 courses. We chose the 11 course menu and... More

Very innovative menu - would be good to be shown it rather than presented at end. Creative small dishes, just the right size. Perhaps if anything a little too creative like eg The Fat Duck in the UK where you are more impressed with the creativity than the enjoyment of the flavours. Service was faultless - not too formal. And... More

From the moment you book to the departing goodbye The Restaurant is perfect! Set in a woodland setting up a long driveway the expectation builds. Arriving at the understated but very classy building your door is opened and a warm welcome awaits. We entered the restaurant to even more warm welcomes. We were 2 couples celebrating anniversaries and a small... More

Beautiful restaurant which mixes modern architecture with countryside materials, top notch service without the stuffiness you sometimes get in high end restaurants and wonderful wine selection to match the tasting menu from a very talented and friendly sommelier Courses which magically unfold in front of you for 3 hours like movements of a symphony; playing with all senses and emotions......
