Very Good for a different experience

The meals are on the high end price wise. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara which was very good. Hubby had the Shaved Beef Sandwich which he loved. Portions are not bad. My co workers rave about the brunch. The staff was very good...attentive and helpful. This place is good for getting off the beaten... read more

I wish we had encountered a redeeming feature to this place...apparently our reservation meant nothing for seating priority, the hostess was unfriendly, and the bartender disappeared for long stretches. After an hour of trying, we left and found dinner elsewhere. Never again.

I have been a fan of Meadowlark until recently. Last night we ordered the steak and it tasted like old meat disguised with sauce to cover it up. We brought it home to feed to our dog. Will be a long time before I return to this former favorite.

I ate at the Meadowlark with a family member for lunch. I ordered the Vietmanese cold noodle salad which was very spice, noodles were somewhat on the hard side and for 12 dollars was not a good value. We also had the fries appetizer that was nothing more than thin fries, with cheap cheese and salt sprinkled over them served... More

I've eaten here several times, for brunch and dinner. Everything is delicious and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly. Its a little pricey/fancy for regular visits, but perfect for special occasions.

The food here is consistently good with excellent specials and lively cocktails. I had the swordfish special served over a simple risotto with spinach and broccolini. The fish was very fresh and the flavors of the dish were subtle yet excellent. They have a nice wine list by the glass or bottle. In this town dominated by chain restaurants, Meadowlark... More

Food was good but the noise level was unbelievable. So glad to get out of there and we found a quiet place down the street where we could converse.

Meadowlark has innovative, locally sourced (when possible) food, as well as a carefully thought out wine list and a great bar. It is one of my favorite places to eat. It is not inexpensive, but not ridiculously expensive either for the quality. Food is cooked to order, in a small kitchen, so expect to spend some time dining. This is... More

Very good food though not cheap and the place is a bit noisy for the price and the ambiance is nothing to boast about.
