Delicious Food

We ate here for the first time this week and enjoyed it very much. I ordered the flank steak off the seasonal menu, and it was very flavorful; the sides were also good. My husband liked the strip steak and mashed potatoes. Save room for the buttermilk chocolate cake--it's fantastic! Our server was... read more

My husband and I recently visited Meadowlark for the first time, although in the company of friends whose taste in restaurants I respect, who have visited the restaurant multiple times, and have declared it their favorite Dayton-area eatery. Before we went, I researched TA, looking at the reviews rating it highest and lowest. I can only say, based on my... More

A true gourmet experience a la Chicago-like bistro. Seasonal menu, fresh locally sourced ingredients. Real chef-craft and real effort on every dish I've tried. My fave: I tried a brunch item that was an egg and curry dish. It blew away my next best example of Indian food anywhere. It was savory, spicy, deep flavors and yet light enough to... More

Had a delicious meal at Meadowlark and would recommend to friends. Very good service in an attractive space. Though the location is central (Kettering, right off of Far Hills Ave). The restaurant is tucked away at the back of a small strip shopping plaza, so it's easy to miss. Make sure you seek it out.

I loved everything about this place. The pork shoulder with kimchee sandwich was absolutely delicious and the beet salad was over the top. We enjoyed the entire experience and whenever we visit Dayton this will be one of our main dining stops.

Meadowlark has easily become my favorite Dayton restaurant. Entrees, sandwiches, salads and desserts are exceptional. My favorites: shaved beef sandwich, meadow burger, chopped salad, ricotta tacos.

My family visited the Meadowlark for Father's Day brunch 2015. My FIL and I had the Spanish Chorizo and Asparagus scramble. My MIL had the shrimp & grits and my wife had the fried green tomato sandwich. Every dish was delicious and that's an understatement. The grits were creamy, the scramble & hash browns were perfectly seasoned and the sandwich... More

Meadowlark has an easy, laid back ambience. Is chef owned and with an excellent menu selection and prepared with fresh and organic ingredients. Way better than most restaurant offerings in the area. Would definitely recommend if visiting the Dayton and surrounding areas.

Meadowlark is a chef owned business in the suburbs of Dayton. It is slightly hard to find. In a small strip of stores, with the name prominently listed among the stores, it doesnt appear to be there. Then suddenly you see it in an opening between stores in the back, in a stand alone building. For some reason we have... More
