Diner Reviews
  • "'Level' was a fantastic experience. On our first visit we were very impressed. Creative cocktails to start--I had "Angels & Demons," a creative, brightly-colored Tequila-based cocktail with a Habanero bite to it. Fantastic. For you foodies who like creative, off-the-beaten-path menu items will love the small plates approach because you'll get a taste of lots of different items, all prepared from select organic farms, most local if I'm not mistaken. As a double date, after our cocktails we ordered 4 small plates and a flatbread and passed them around until the bowls/plates were literally scraped clean. The dessert was equally delicious--chocolate banana bread pudding with a rum-something sauce--home run! Summary: Go. You'll enjoy it!"

  • "Went there for my father's birthday, the small plates were flavorful and big enough, my kids were accepted, (they don't always sit still perfectly), the food was fantastic the service was fantastic would definitely try again to see what's new on the menu."

  • "It is difficult to say nice how a of place Levels is. Every time we go we are taken aback by the quality of the experince. The "Olde Annapolis" ambiance, the expertly prepared and presented dishes and the great waitstaff (this evening we were taken care of by Sean - most helpful with menu choices and an budding sommelier.) Go. Period."

  • "Great service, great food. Clearly supports local farms...not clear if products are GMO free or organic. Acoustics were terrible. There was a large party at the bar and although we were seated as far from it as we could be table conversation with our guests was very difficult. Not sure what could be done about that but thought you should know."

  • "I have had two flawless dining experiences with Level. The food is insanely delicious, the drinks are unique and heavenly, the service is spot-on, and the atmosphere is comfortable and contempory. Pricing is reasonable but it's easy to get carried away ordering. I really do love this place. It's now my go-to for any special occasion"

  • "Level is a nice spot to hit for a classy date night. The service was excellent and our waitress knew the menu very well. She made some great dinner and drink recommendations. We had a couple drinks and shared 4 small plates and left satisfied. We will definitely go back."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The menu choices were varied and interesting. Very knowledgeable waiter. Wine choices were somewhat limited but very good. Cocktail choices, however, were varied and abundent with many specialty drinks. The small plates were a little larger than we thought, and were stuffed after 2 small plates each. The garlic fries are a must, but enough for 4 people to share..."

  • "We were not disappointed when we decided to come here for dinner! My friend and I were on a short weekend trip and stumbled on this restaurant, drawn in by the simplicity and freshness of the menu. The presentation of food is part of the joy of eating and the flavors did not let me down! Nailed it on both accounts. And the way they brought the check is brilliance...if I was in the area, I would be sure and return!"

  • "Had read reviews and decided to pick this restaurant and it was awesome. Great atmosphere, attentive waitstaff, and fabulous fresh food. We ordered a variety of items including dessert and everything tasted excellent."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This is one of those restaurants that you just want to go into for a drink and a light snack even if you have other dinner plans and even if you are not even hungry. The place is pretty narrow, but if you find a seat at the bar, it will be fairly comfortable. They do have a pretty good wine list but what they do extremely well is craft cocktails. I recently had a Moscow Mule from here where they used their ginger beer to make it. It was an impressive showing. We also had their seared calamari and the food here never disappoints. The bartender / server was pretty engaging. Will definitely return to this restaurant for eats."

  • "We came here with our kids during a vacation. The restaurant is a hip, trendy place, and my husband was worried they wouldn't be accommodating to our kids. The staff was gracious and exceptionally kind. Even though there was no kids' menu, our boys loved the burger sliders. It was a wonderful meal: kid-friendly, yet delicious. Without kids, this place is perfect for a date night or just to sit at the bar! We'll definitely be back if in the area again!"

  • "This restaurant is amazing. Staff is very attentive and knowledgable. Food was AMAZING!! We had the hand cut fries which were delicious and unique, loved the garlic and herbs they put on top. Bison sliders were awesome and scallops melt in your mouth. Looking forward to our next date night to try more!"

  • "Great "small plate" spot (although, small plates were generous). Scallops we're tad undercooked, but crab risotto is the BEST USE OF CRAB EVER! Great food - Great fun - Fabulous service. Go soon and often!"

    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Innovative and quite good portions for "small plates" so we ordered more than we could handle (we took home most of the very good flatbread pizza". Tuna Tartar is a must as an accompaniment to the many hot plates."

  • "I found this restaurant quite easily by searching for gluten free friendly menus on yelp. The food, service and ambiance were phenomenal. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated with a feeling of intimacy. Our waiter was attentkve, knowledgeable and fun. Everyone in my group had a great time and we all enjoyed the experience very much. We can't wait to go back!!"

  • "We choie this spot for an anniversary dinner and did not disappoint! Reasonable portions allowed us to try several different items and the wine list was very good! Level has a good feel, and lots of choices for almost anyone!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "This was our second time at Level, and the food was outstanding, just like our first visit. We particularly liked the roasted beets, the cheese plate, and the shrimp/grits. The only complaint we had was with our server, who seemed a little too impressed with himself. We told him we were torn between ordering cocktails or a bottle of wine. He said he was the head sommelier and would be glad to help. We mentioned a few cocktails we thought looked good as well as a bottle of wine. He proceeded to slam our wine choice by saying, "We're no longer going to carry that bottle, upon my suggestion." We were insulted. Other than that, the experience was great. Food was outstanding. We'll be back, but hope we don't get the pompous server again. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We enjoyed levels. We liked the farm to table concept, and the menu offered lots of items that look tempting. The cocktails we had were great, but the food was hit or miss. We liked the pistachio-crusted lamb chops (yum!), but the sautéed kale was watery and under-seasoned. The mushroom risotto is great comfort food, but a bit on the bland side. Still, we'll be back to try more."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Went with another couple who also love trying new things. The drinks were awesome - try the Moscow Mule. We ordered two plates each to start and then reorder two of them. Quick turnaround from the kitchen and each was perfectly done. It is no wonder why the spicy tuna is their most popular dish - try it and you will know what I mean. "

  • "Awesome restaurant, my fav in Annapolis. I've never had a bad meal here and their drinks are amazing as well! "

  • "If you enjoy fresh, local food, a good wine selection and imaginative cocktails, all expertly served in an upscale urban bistro setting, you need to visit Level. "
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "We started off with cocktails, both of which were excellent, imaginative, and tasty. We continued with the pork ragout and a cheesy flatbread. Again, both were excellent. Service was just right; always there when you want them; not over-attentive or intrusive."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Really wanted to love this place, came away only liking it, fabulous concept, food was on point (fried Brussels sprouts were delicious - who knew?). Level would have been four or even five stars had we had a waiter that gave a damn. His tip could have been 2x what it was, if he had cared. Mike G, it was your loss. . .you were horrible. Once you saw that the size of our party was going to get you 20%, you didn't give a damn. It was not the food, it was not how loud the upstairs was. it was the horrible service that we received that really made me give this a three. If you go, ask for a table downstairs, upstairs acoustics cause it to be VERY LOUD. Try the sliders, or the scallops and the Shrimp and grits. . .but get a better waiter."

  • "We had a late lunch so we only wanted something light before we went off to the show at Ram's Head. Our shared beet salad, his pistachio-coated lamb chops and my pan-seared scallops were all excellent choices but it was my "360 gimlet" that was the super star. Get this drink!! Not only is it made with fresh lime juice but it's topped with an amazing frothy foam that will have u licking your lips and wishing you didn't have show tickets so you could down another. Our server was knowledgable, pleasant & efficient. I'd go back in a heartbeat for that gimlet alone!"

  • "Level Small Plates is our destination for special occasions, this visit being for my wife's birthday. The food is excellent and the serving portions are great when you want to taste a little something of everything. The atmosphere and serving sizes encourage an extremely social outing. Everything about this place is great - minor hiccup in service on this visit when 1 of the meals did not come as ordered and the server asked us if we wanted to order another one (intending us to pay again for a dish that was prepared incorrectly) - Not too happy about that. The acoustics are very loud so you'll want to be seated on the 1st floor or visit when the weather is nice so the front wall & windows are open."

  • "Fantastic food, good service, and decent prices. My wife and I were in Annapolis for a short visit, and ate at Level on the advice of a friend--and great advice it was! We will definitely be back. "
