Nice place to have a glass of wine and a meal. The shaved beef sandwich ( like a French Dip) with a crispy bread was good. Tabouli with Sharma Chicken was just the right thing to have. Our wait person was attentive.

Service was wonderful. Cocktails were wonderful. The food was divine. The hummus: YUM. Fish chowder was delish. I had the salmon, which was served medium and was wonderful. Loved every bite we had. We will be back.

This was a great place that you kind of have to have someone tell you to go there. Unassuming location, eclectic decor. Fabulous, if not passionate dishes, and I liked the balance of offerings that allows everyone to find their thing. Extra marks for taking...More

Great place to meet a friend for lunch! The atmosphere is contemporary, yet casual enough to feel comfortable to spend time catching up over amazing food. I'd go back again and again just for their delicious Homemade Ginger Ale. WOW! Loads of choices on the...More

yes, but they only do reservations for parties of 5 or more. If you have a smaller party and it's a weekend I recommend calling ahead and asking to be put on the "list"

I like to make a bit of effort at dinner time, but very casual at lunch. Certainly no dress code, and you will not be treated any differently based on what you are wearing.

Meadowlark is a chef-owned and operated neighborhood restaurant in the heart of Dayton, Ohio. Our menus feature high-quality ingredients cooked simply but imaginatively with lively, bright-tasting flavors. Our cooking is geared toward the American palate, which means fluffy, buttermilk mashed potatoes, homemade pickles and cornbread, great pancakes at brunch and yes, there will always be a burger on the menu. We also feature meat, fish and vegetarian dishes that employ the flavors and techniques from around the world that we have all come to love. This is contemporary everyday cooking, from scratch, made and served with local pride.
