  • ".Had brunch at Level One Sunday., April 13. Our waitress was unfocussed, spent a lot of time with one table, was slow to bring us coffee. We never were offered a refill. We waited at least 40 minutes for our food to arrive. The waitress told us they were overwhelmed. For brunch??? My eggs Benedict were hard boiled, not soft and runny as they should be, and lukewarm at that. There was no Hollandaise sauce over the top of the eggs. The home fries were quite good and hot. I had ordered a side for fresh fruit. It did not come with the meal and I had to ask for it. When it arrived the fruit did not taste fresh at all. I won't be back."

  • "The person greeting us said he didn't have our reservation because he hadn't checked Open Table as yet. We requested a table in the shade. After a long wait for food, we were completely in the sun. When we left, I told the greeter about the sun and no apology came. He acted as if he hadn't heard the complaint. We will never return."

  • "I always love LevelOne but the time the food didn't wow me. Perhaps I ordered the wrong thing- the frittata was very dry and overcooked. However, our server, Unicorn, was amazing."

  • "I have been to level one more than once and everytime the service has been fantastic and everything i've had on the menu so far is delicious. It's more or less a typical brunch menu but the bottomless mimosas are delicious and never empty-- I tried to play a game called finish your glass before they re-filled. I don't recommend this."

  • "Absolutely loved this spot. A group of friends & I came here for my birthday. Great food & the Drinks were Just Right. The drinks were never half full, the waiter walked around constantly refilling our cups up. Everyone were beyond friendly, which made this birthday event memorable. Absolutely would return & I highly recommend."

  • "Saw ad and was excited to see drag show during brunch. Got seated at table to find out no show. Drinks were weak and food was bland. Huge disappointment with experience. Waitress couldn't remember to bring items and took too long to check on us. Next time we'll stick to Annie's on next visit."

  • "Level One is always a top of the list for best places to go for an affordable brunch on the weekends. People are drawn for the value of good food and the bottomless Mimosia and Bloody Mary drinks ($15). Staff is always very friendly and fun, and the food is a good value. Recommend making reservations for brunch as this is a popular place for the young and young at heart to eat, drink, and be merry. Do have to warn however that this is not the place to go if you want a quite brunch, at times it can get extremely loud due to the energetic crowd and the acoustics, but always a fun experience."

  • "The food was delish! I had the blueberry pancakes and my gurlie had the French toast. Both were absolutely tasty! Service was amazing, the waiter never once let our mimosas get less than half full. I was super tipsy & stuffed after we were finished, I couldn't ask for a better brunch!"

  • "Great brunch, but they were running the heat on a 60+ degree day and it it made the room smell old and musty. Other than that, great brunch!"

  • "Wow, we loved having brunch at Level One! It was tough choosing a menu item because everything looked so good, so we decided on the hashbrown w/bacon/scallions/cheese/topped with fried egg! We absolutely LOVED it! Our waitress continuously refilled our bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Mary's! What a great place!"

  • "I had a great time with friends for brunch. The only thing I would say is that the brunch menu is small and needs more variety. in addition, our server was slow. However I think that had to do with the fact she was one server for an entire table of 9. Other than that the food was great and we had a great time. The mimosas were great and were always refilled. Not the best brunch but definitely one of the better brunches in DC."

  • "Great Experience! We visited Level One to kick start a bachelorette weekend and it was GREAT! The staff was super energetic and very attentive. The food and mimosas were great, and we all talked about going back again in the future!"

  • "This was my first time going to Level One- and I loved it! I live in Maryland and am most likely driving into DC on the weekends. Everyone knows that parking in DC can be a nightmare, so if you're going to brave the District for brunch- it should be worth it- and Level One is definitely worth it. Bottomless mimosa, reasonable prices and outstanding food. I will certainly recommend to friends and I will venture there again. I love brunch, and this just went into my Top Five for go-to spots in DC."

  • "I made a reservation with my wife for brunch on Saturday (1/11/14) based on boasts of Best Brunch honors for 3-years in a row in the Best of DC awards. Unfortunately, that wasn't the brunch that was delivered. I had the frittata with home fries...plus a side of turkey sausage, organic grits and a bloody mary. Frittata: this was the biggest disappointment. I've been spoiled on great frittatas recently, but that wasn't the issue. The frittata was rubbery and dry throughout. Frittatas should be served immediately...and I'm certain the dish was either poorly prepared, or it sat for a very long time before it was delivered to the table. Also, the bloody mary was really sweet if you're a traditionalist. Wish I had room to go into more detail."

  • "I went to brunch with two of my girlfriends and we had a great time. The bottomless mimosas were truly bottomless, and the brunch Bowl was cheesy deliciousness Our waiter was hilarious. I wish I remembered his name. He was tall and very skinny."

  • "Level One Brunch is the best DC has to offer. I came to celebrate my birthday, with my family and some friends in tow. Everyone from my country-bumpkin mother to my NYC-native friend loved the restaurant, the food, the (bottomless) drinks, and definitely our server (Jason). We had a BLAST and will all definitely be returning."

  • "The food, as usual, was good. The service, as usual, was lacking. Our server was very personable, just not a good server."
