Great service and good food make Level III a good restaurant bet. I just wish the menu had a little bit more variety. But the food they do serve is very good.

Total rip off. $66 each for a super plain breakfast buffet plus an 18% tip automatically added to the bill just because it was during the JPMorgan Healthcare Conference was really obnoxious. Felt very taken advantage of.

The food was okay, not something I would look forward to going back for.
The most frustrating thing about lunch & reserving via OpenTable, is that there was NO indication in advance that there would be a $125.00 table fee + automatic 18% gratuity for a lunch reservation.

I understand there being a city-wide conference and space being a premium; but to have 2 managers say we were told about the table fee at arrival was a lie when I pushed back on paying the table fee. If we were advised of the table fee even with a lunch reservation, we would have been able to decide if the table fee was acceptable or we could have decided against being seated for lunch. Being repeatedly told by 2 managers that they could not do anything was extremely poor customer service in my opinion.

Surprising how this very upscale hotel in chosen to utilize this restaurant. When I arrived for our reservation for 6 at Noon on Sunday, I assumed I was in the wrong location. This looked like a casual lobby area with a few tables. Service reflected this as it seemed to be a complete after-thought, almost as if "Oh, you want to sit down and eat? Well, let me see what I can do to help." I must saw, that the salmon on my salad was incredible, though the salad was completely uninspired.

No, I would not go there again, nor recommend to friends, until they decide to be a restaurant.

Excellent menu, expertly prepared and presented. The salmon with green curry was absolutely delicious with its subtlety of flavors. The crab cakes are the best I have ever had. On top of this was an excellent wine list with a nice and unusual choice by the glass.

Basically the restaurant is in the lobby area of the hotel, noisy, children running around, people in shorts and T-shirts, it’s not the nice restaurant ambience wise it could be. However, the food was very good. Note the menu on OpenTable is not accurate. They do not have ribeye steaks and many other things.

In the 3rd floor of JW Marriott San Francisco, it exists. Even in the Friday evening, I could reserve it 30 minutes before, why ?
As inside of the high level hotel, the atmosphere is good and staff is gentle. Even for a non-alcohol cocktail not in the menu, the staff showed us the solution.
All food and drink were good.

Lunch service at a fairly empty time, seemed to be only one employee. Multiple people looking around trying to get service. Ordered very bland shrimp tacos and the waitress only reappeared once to give us the check. It was a super weird dining experience.

The Crab Benedict was a bit dry, my wife had to send hers back as the eggs were fully cooked, while I asked for more hollandaise sauce to compensate for the dryness of the English muffin

This is our ‘go to’ place for dinner before the show at San Francisco Playhouse. This was our fifth dinner here and we are consistently pleased with the food, the service, and the value,

We highly recommend it and will be back.

This restaurant is in an open style lobby of the JW Marriott. Perhaps if I’d known that, I may not have chosen it. The experience was ok overall, few small mishaps but ok.
I would stay at the hotel ... properly is very spacious and elegant.

El lugar esta escasamente decorado, es en el lobby de un hotel, un lugar abierto, sin intimidad.
Los mozos atienden a desgano, si prestar mada de atencion, casi molestos de ser llamados por los comensales.
La comida en cambio es de alto nivel, todo muy cuidado, bien presentado y sabroso. Hasta los postres fueron deliciosos.

For a JW Marriott experience this has lacked good service. Food was excellent but obviously, staff has to be trained accordingly to offer the same level of experience. Had to ask for water, bread and butter. When one uses a fork for the appetizer, the fork is not out back on the table for the main dish but goes with the plate!
Food was tasty and quite nice but service ruined the experience.

We found this restaurant on Open Table and it was truly a delicious and fun experience. It is a hidden gem in San Francisco and a must-go-to place. The Crab Louis salad was the best that I have had.

We sat down and wanted to order drinks. I gave the gentleman my order of a French Martini and he said that they would have to google how to make it. He walked away & came back & said that we could only order drinks off of the menu (about 10 specialty drinks). My friend ordered the sangria & again the gentleman came back & said it wasn’t ready yet. This was during prime lunch hours. We got up & left. Very disappointing experience.

Went for Brunch and it was a poor selection and poor quality food. It was in the JW Marriott so we expected it to be good. I would not go back and do not recommend anyone trying it. There is significantly better choices.

The food was delicous and the bar selection quite nice. The wine list was varied and had many offerings. The fish tacos were tasty with a nice ‘kick’. The main dish meat was tender and flavorful and in lieu of mashed potatoes, my friend was offered a special vegetable side that was not on the menu. While our meal was praise worthy, our server pushed our experience over the top! Jason was fabulous! Fortunately for us the restaurant was quiet and slow, and Jason spent extra time with us fielding all of our food and life related questions. We would have a meal everyday at Level III if we could sit in Jason’s section. Hotel restaurants are sometimes viewed as ‘less than’, but Level III holds it own.

My bf and I came here for the Christmas dinner, but the server is not excellent as we excepted. we ordered Christmas dinner $78 per person, the main course is fine. But the dessert is terrible, they are easily to make and in any drawing around.
