Excellent food and service. We tried the Vietnamese sandwich and the Fried green tomato sandwich. Both were prepared well and had great flavor and texture. The Vietnamese sandwich was slightly spicy which added to the taste. This resturant is one that beckons for a return.

We visited the restaurant for a date night and was not impressed from time we arrived. Greeting was lacking and so was the menu. It wasn't the worse meal we ever had but won't return.

Chef Wiley rocks! Always great food, family friendly, well informed servers, and wonderful fun-to-read specials and wine list. It's a favorite, we go often and it never disappoints.

Imaginative entrees, presented well. Gracious wait staff. Locally owned. Try the Broken Enchiladas. Or the chicken thighs. Or Spaghetti Carbonara. And the hummus is so fine!

I was recently in Dayton for a family funeral; I met several cousins the night prior. The menu was a delight to read; I think we all had difficulty figuring out what we would order. Everyone was very pleased with our selections.

Had been to restaurant before, but seem to have made changes since last I visited. I had the roasted beet with pecans and horseradish appetizer--ok, but would not get again. The cream of potato soup toped with bacon bits was very good--took home a bowl,...More

While visiting friends in town, I met a friend here for lunch. As usual the food and service were superb. Our cocktails were delicious, the food perfect and the service so attentive without being cloying.

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.
