The Restaurant at the Meadowood will likely long be in my top dining experiences. Everything could not have been more perfect. The staff was friendly yet not intrusive. The sommelier absolutely spot on. The atmosphere perfect. And as far as the food?? I will quote my German Chef friend who when asked what were the top three things on our... More

From the welcome by the staff and having a drink in the lounge through the end of the evening, a world class experience. The staff is great and very professional and of course the food it just extraordinary. The choice of dishes and the presentation is unbelievable, each course like an artwork. I also liked the fact that it was... More

Chef Christopher Kostow and Director Nathaniel Dorn combined to earn only the 2nd Michelin Three Star rating west of Chicago.The restaurant is everything it is touted for, the extraordinary treatment of almost anything edible, the creative presentation of every course on a different and mostly custom designed serving piece, the incredible West Point precision service and a spectacular wine selection...

Having 3 Michelin stars means that the food is so good, the restaurant is worth a trip to the area just to eat there. This is very much the truth when it comes to The Restaurant at Meadowood. This was one of the best meals I've ever had, and I've dined at some of the top restaurants in Europe and... More

Chef Chris will delight you in a culinary taste adventure, some of the most amazing foods I have ever had the delight of eating. Service is delightful, helpful and always pleasant, we go one to two times a year just to eat Chef's newest creations!

It's just not right that travelers come here expecting a 3-star experience, and then get this "unique" experience. IMHO, it's just all too precious. Too pretentious. Why not call it "Food Theater/Art" and then let the kitchen get as angular as they like? But, it IS supposed to be a restaurant. I do, therefore, need something to eat. Slate, tile,... More

After having been to The French Laundry two nights before (and being terribly underwhelmed) we headed off to The Restaurant at Meadowood to see what all the hype was about and it did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded our expectations which was a treat. The service was perfect, the food was delightful and the wine list was impressive. With... More

Taking the view that we weren't going to risk starvation, and staying positive, this was our back up if French Laundry failed to deliver. So it came to pass that we toddled off to Meadowood via a scenic country lane arriving at beautiful grounds in twilight, sat down in an elegantly beautiful dining room and - that piped music! Quirky,... More

this is definitely worth the trip and $$ spent. i've been in the restaurant business for 30 years in nyc and have never seen anywhere do everything so well. it's a testament to the chef and his staff, who are all pretty young. i think it's what surprised me - that much singleminded creativity from such a youthful staff. often...
