Always superb food and service. Most people do not think a hotel restaurant is quality, but Level III never disappoints.

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.

Meh. People were unbelievably lovely as was the service. The food was unremarkable.

Food was fresh and excellent. I went back for the tuna Poke...although it was more like tartare.

It doesn't say on the OpenTable description that this is in the Marriott so we were wandering around a bit confused. It's a Hotel atmosphere which is ok but not really special. The food is really good, the wait staff quite attentive. Hard,y anyone was there so we had their attention! It's pretty, not wrong with it but it just has the feeling of being in the hotel lobby.

Went to hostess stand for our reservation no one was there. Waited a few minutes, no one came over. We went somewhere else.

Over-priced food - nothing special and small servings. Had to search for someone in order to be seated. Service - despite the fact the place was empty - was slow and we had to repeat requests. The "view" is of the buildings across the street and the waiter seated us with our backs to the window.

Absolutely no point in going back!

Went on a Saturday night before seeing Noises Off. Only 1 other group eating there so very quiet, which is what we wanted. I gather it is much busier during the week. Limited food options and pretty expensive, tho maybe typical of San Francisco.

Delicious fish tacos and wonderful club sandwich. This is a great spot for lunch before the theater.

The menu selection for our business luncheon was highly recommended by knowledgeable staff and thoroughly enjoyed by all. The braised short ribs were absolutely the most tender and tasty I've ever experienced. We enjoyed a very fresh and flavorful Kale salad (only time I've ever liked Kale) which was accompanied by a toast point with something like a pear marmalade...a great combination of flavors. Needless to say, there wasn't a plate on the table with a morsel left.

A la carte breakfast is OK, but nothing special. Friendly and fast service.

Not what the propaganda says it is - effectively a coffee shop reservations are certainly not required. When my colleague asked the waiter which salad he would recommend the Quinoa or Kale - the waiter replied I don't eat either so can't comment - bless but maybe the Chef had an opinion we never heard.
Burger was very nice but wouldn't rate it higher than any other good burger place that may not come with the attitude

It was a nice hotel lounge and restaurant, ambiance was lovely. Good was delicious and plentiful, I love brunch hotel restaurant settings.

Not a great menu. Fries were soggy.
Salad had too much dressing.
Felt like a typical hotel restaurant

Overage ambiance good, eat indoors or outdoors. Noisy vibrant crowd and good service. The food, only average. Salmon dried out small portions and veggies uninteresting

We had breakfast here. They did not recognize our reservation, although it was not a problem because the restaurant was fairly empty. The waiter took us to a table back in the restaurant, which was somewhat secluded and great for conversation, but the service was slow and intermittent. The food was OK.

We were looking for a sophisticated place for dinner on NYE and chose Level III. Worst decision ever. The meal was terrible, we left hungry, and the service was even worse. We sat in the lobby of the hotel (hoping to have better ambiance) and it was not what we hoped. Save your money and go to Roy's instead.

We had great service and food but no ambiance. The place is too big and too white bright, feel like I was eating in a cafeteria at a hospital. Portions are small and a bit pricey. Not too many options on the menu.

We didn't realize this was a hotel restaurant when we made our reservation. We arrived with our two children, 6 and 9, and were seated with one menu for the four of us to share. It took a good 10 minutes for our waitress to greet us and offer us additional menus. When I had questions about how a couple items might be modified for kids, it dawned on her that they actually had kid menus, so then she brought out two of them. Then, when I asked if they could do plain buttered noodles instead of noodles with marinara, she said she would have to ask (!!), and then came back to say it would take 30 minutes. After she left, I discovered the kids menu had a reverse side, with plain buttered noodles as a regular option. When my husband asked for a beer, she didn't know what they had on tap. And when she brought Shirley Temples for my kids, they didn't taste at all like Shirley Temples, and they were probably 16 oz each. The food was mediocre. If you're staying at this hotel for a conference and you're starving between meetings, this is the place for you. But if you can get out of the hotel, you'll be better off.

Food was amazing but it was a little slow coming out. I enjoyed the staffs attitudes and attention to detail. My Filet Mignon was tender and very tasty.

We went to Level III because it was close to our hotel and had good ratings. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent and the service was spot on. As they have small plates and large plates we let the waitress guide us on quantity and she steered us right. We enjoyed: Flat bread with three "dips" - delicious - perfect starter; Sea Bass (daily catch) - perfectly cooked and the sauce, oh the sauce was amazing - perfect balance of lemon and creaminess; Crab cakes - I order crab cakes every time I see them on the menu so I've had a few crab cakes - Level III crab cakes are some of the best I've had. Little to no filling, beautiful chunks of crab inside, crunchy on the outside, served with an one of the best dipping sauces I've experienced (I ordered extra sauce). Overall a wonderful dining experience.

With restaurants getting way too noisy, it's such a pleasure to find a place where one can have a quiet private conversation. Our dishes were delicious, very generously sized and beautifully presented. We can't wait to go here again!

As a repeat diner at JW restaurant, I'm always amazed at the exquisite blend of flavors on all of the slections....simple, uncomplicated and pleasingly artistic to view. And, it's always at the right temperature and cooked to perfection.

Nothing special about food at this restaurant. Menu was fairly standard and so was the preparation.

OpenTable Diner (Seattle)

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The place was dead in the dining lounge, there was maybe 1-2 tables at max that were occupied. It took more than fifteen minutes for the waitress to come over. Then she had a slight attitude and not very friendly, we left right away and told the manager that it was the first and the last time they had our business.
