Level Small Plates Lounge
On the LevelThe Level is one of our favorite Annapolis places. Just beyond the action of historic Annapolis, but still within walking distance, the small plates menu never fails. From the duck spring rolls to the flat breads to the brussel sprouts, the food is always excellent. They have a fun drink menu too!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food, and great drinksThe food is all sourced locally. The mixed drinks are their own inventions and are all really fresh and good, stuff that I would never have thought of. The place can get loud because of the hardwood floors and brick walls, but its fine with me. They have small plates of food so you can have variety. The food is done right. This has been our favorite place to go to. Its more for the hipster or foodie crowd.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING ADVENTUROUS DININGFOR AN OUTSTANDING EVENING OF ADVENTUROUS DINING ONE MUST TRY LEVEL RESTAURANT ON WEST ST. IN ANNAPOLIS.

CHEF JOSH BROWN IS TO BE COMMENDED FOR HIS CREATIVITY IN PROVIDING SO MANY SUCCULENT CHOICES.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious as alwaysWe ate there at 830pm on Saturday night and it was bustling with the typical trendy crowd. Thanks to OpenTable we walked right in and received the last table available. The tuna tartare is spectacular, spicy and tender. The rest of the food was amazing as well, but the fries left a little something to be desired (but who goes there for the fries anyway). It's always pretty loud at those peak evening times (there is nothing soft in the room to dampen the voices carrying) but the food far outweighs that.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was just fabulous!!!The food was just fabulous!!! We brought our two children. They did fine, but go early if you have kids. We strongly recommend Level! Will be back!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious but ChillyThe Tuna Tartare was out of this world fabulous and the chocolate chip banana bread pudding was delicious too! The door was open for most of our dining experience and although it let in fresh air, it was pretty chilly inside and we actually had to move our table to another part of the restaurant. Overall, it was still a great night!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMeverything was great, oureverything was great, our table was ready in the vibrant bar area.

Seating was conducive to group eating. Liked that there was just enough food for one but could be shared with more. No need for doggy bag. Great prices.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NoiseyWe had very good service, but we were seated near the bar & couldn't hear what one another way saying. If we return, we will sit elsewhere.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOver the Top!Food quality at Level is 'over the top'! Besides the freshest ingredients, the combinations of flavors, textures and plate presentation is outstanding. This is now the ONLY restaurant we go to for dinner when visiting Annapolis.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved It!This was our first time to dine at Level, and we loved it. The food was amazing.

Our favorites were the shrimp and grits and the duck confit. We would like to return with a larger group to try a bigger variety. Service was very fast and efficient. Wish we lived closer to Annapolis!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappointed!Level is always a good time. We find the food to be fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented. This visit we were seated upstairs, very nice. We order two small plates at a time and share them. We ended up ordering seven different items, got to taste a variety of foods, and were very pleased with our choices. Grilled calamari with crispy capers is a favorite. The lamb dish that was a take on a gyro was very tasty. Beet salad; excellent! Shrimp & grits; spicy! Eggplant; awesome! We also enjoy their risotto and since it can be a heavy dish anyway, we always order it last. No room for dessert! It does get busy (and noisy)on a Friday night, we did not have any issues with service, our sever was pleasant and patient, meal was well paced.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent small plates restaurant.Excellent small plates restaurant. We ordered 8-9 plates and each was excellent.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food !We were on holidays in Annapolis and saw the review for this restaurant in Yelp. The food was fantastic as my wife and I shared 5 dishes which were all freshly made and tasted delicious (the scallop flatbread was a standout). We also had a nice wine (a Worthy cab sauv). The deserts were very tasty and capped off a great meal. Overall, highly recommended !3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat farm-to-table artisanGreat farm-to-table artisan tappas. However, expect to pay a hefty premium. We go there only for special occasions, but the food and specialty cocktails are both delicious.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMi had a reservation @ 7:30pm,i had a reservation @ 7:30pm, was told my table would be ready in a few more minutes. 15 minutes later i asked again about our table as there was a 6 top in front of us that was empty since we arrived as well as two four tops with no one seated. i was told again they were waiting on one table to open up then we would be seated. @ 8:00pm the hostess came and told me they would be putting an extra seat at the end of one of the two empty four tops. by this time three other two tops had opened up as well. i explained that this was unnaceptable, i was told the other tables were for reservations. i questioned her choice of words and explained that we needed to be seated. i was seated promptly after and from there in the evening was wonderful.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery dish was very good.Every dish was very good.

There was more on the menu we wanted to try, but as it was we were all very full by the time we left. We would easily go back when we are in Annapolis again.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
