We ate brunch at Meadowlark and found the food very good but the experience was uncomfortable with the noise level. We could not talk and hear each other, and that's half the fun of eating out!

My daughter and I ate lunch here. I had a lemon and chicken sandwich with garlic fries. My daughter had a delicious rutabaga cream chowder and a sliced beef and cheddar sandwich. Everything we ordered had a lot of flavor. There is a noted attention to detail in everything down to the home made ketchup with a twist. Neither of... More

The best burger around called the Lark Burger!! They also have fresh beets with pecans, goat cheese, and a horseradish sauce that is amazing. This is a very fresh place using local ingredients. My very fave and I try to go as much as possible!!

One of the ways our friends and we stay in touch is starting Sundays every few weeks with brunch at Meadowlark Restaurant. We look forward to these vibrant get togethers, good nourishing food, and friendly severs.

We travel to Napa every year and enjoy the many excellent restaurants. When we want a Napa vibe in Dayton, Ohio we go to Meadowlark. The menu is eclectic, excellently prepared, and there are always innovative specials. I love their Hanger Steak preparations, usually served with a side of Broccoli Rabe. Chef Wiley is a Miami Valley institution and the... More

Decent food and very good service. I would suggest a wider variety of buggers. Prices were ok but will probably try the grilled cheese next time.

This is a mid range priced farm to table restaurant We met family friends here for brunch on Sunday. We had a short wait but I could see a Friday or Saturday needing to call for reservations. The wait staff is friendly, and everything is made fresh, so you may have to wait a bit for food. This did not... More

This is one of our go-to places when we want to celebrate an occasion. The food is ALWAYS good. On our last visit, I had the hanger steak w/ veggies. It was perfectly cooked and delicious. One of my dining companions had brussel sprouts hash. It was absolutely wonderful. Another companion had their burger -- perfection. At times, it can... More

We made an 8:45 reservation to meet friends on a Saturday evening. Our knowledgeable, friendly server, Josh, recommended a wonderful bottle of wine for the table to share, and we also shared a couple of apps. The lamb salad and sweet potato fritters were so very tasty! My husband and I shared the Trout special, which was cooked in classic... More
