Level III Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant is located on the third floor open to the mezzanine. The ambience would of been better if they would dim the lighting a bit, it was a little too bright. We went for Thanksgiving dinner. The butternut squash bisque was excellent, turkey was good, vegtables were under cooked and bland. Overall it was an OK experience.
Great food and service. The location is a definite plus: near a lot of venues around Union Square and Nob Hill. I think the marketing is pushing too much the bar scene and groups; we came for a semi-romantic dinner in a quiet place, and Level III was able to provide that. Also, I was not aware of any outdoor dining.
We booked a reservation here based on the website menu and the general feel we got based on the website. When we arrived we were incredibly disappointed. The waiter indicated they had 'cut their menu down' which actually translated into a very small selection of overpriced food. We actually walked out without ordering because we couldn't find anything that interested us. It also didn't help that the place was dead on a Saturday night - the atmosphere was bland and boring. However as a plus, the wait staff were very friendly and when we let them know we wouldn't be staying they were not rude to us at all.
Level III had excellent food at an excellent value. We did the 3-course prix fixe menu and had poke, a salad, steaks, and one of each dessert. Everything tasted delicious, the service was excellent, and the restaurant was beautifully decorated. The only drawback to this restaurant was it was open air inside the Marriott and the hotel noise was quite noticeable.
We had a late lunch and were the only couple in the restaurant. The drink - French Cosmo - was delicious, with just the right amount of raspberry. We enjoyed the seafood chowder. We ordered ribeye steaks with garlic fries as our entrees. The steak was terrible and shouldn't have been served. It was at least 60% grissel and fat. Mostly inedible and incredibly disappointing. The sauce on the steak was lovely, but that steak was unacceptable. I expect better quality cuts of meat from a place like this. Very disappointing. Service was fine, not overbearing even though we were the only guests. Decor was comfy and inviting. I'd go back for a cocktail and maybe some appetizers, but not for entrees.
My fiance and I visited Level III on our first trip to San Francisco. We decided to have lunch here after seeing the prix fix menu they offered for the Dine About Town event. We both had the seafood chowder and the ribeye with garlic fries. Given the discounted menu choice, we were delighted when bread was brought to the table before our meal. The chowder had great flavor, but both of our steaks were fatty and overdone. The booth we were seated at had peeling seats and the chandelier was low enough that I could see plenty of fingerprints and dust and it was a distraction while trying to talk across the table. Overall the food was alright, but I don't believe we'll be visiting again.
Overall the food was quite good, both well-prepared and well-presented. The filet mignon was very tender and had a good amount of pepper flavoring. However, we did feel that the service was not as good as it could have been - mainly that our water cups were not refilled on a regular basis. Otherwise, service was okay, the food has a large part to do with the higher overall score.
Did the Dine Around Town lunch menu which was very good, especially the garlic fries. My companion's steak was not cooked as ordered and the server noticed, and despite our saying it was OK, took it upon himself to make amends by offering a free dessert. Will go back again just because of that graciousness even if the food wasn't also worthwhile.
We opt for the 2-course DAT lunch menu. Appetizers were the seafood chowders which were good but very thick and heavy. I was full before the entrees were served. Entrees were the rib-eye steaks...mine arrived medium which was fine, but my friend's steak also came medium rather than the medium rare she requested. Decor was pleasant and spacious and chairs were comfortable. The dining room was quiet and empty...only 3 tables were occupied. Service was adequate.
This was an overall bust. I arrived and had no clue I was actually staring the restaurant in the face. It looked like an airport lounge. It was painfully quiet. The lights were way too bright for any kind of dinner you'd like to enjoy with ambiance. The curtains out-dated. The blinds were shut, i didnt even get to experience looking out onto the city streets. The booth was comfy to sit. The Jalepeno martini was great. The eppler wine good- decent price. The manhattan was deceit needed a spike. The margarita was weak, we had to ask to top it off; the server seemed to understand why without explanation. Seems that is a typically run in. The pepper-crusted steak was the only highlight. Service was slow for an empty restaurant. More attentive.
I did the "Dine About Town" Menu and, for me, it was really not worth it. For $35 I got a salad of mostly frisee (1st course), an over cooked piece of fish that didn't have enough sauce to moisten it (2nd course), and a cheap looking cheese plate (3rd course). Two other people with me ordered steaks and they were both cooked incorrectly and were sent back. The service was fair, but definitely not good. It was more like 'diner service' - not 'nice hotel restaurant service'.
It;s a shame this place is a little outdated on its decor and stuck in a stodgy Marriot (I think it was the Marriot) - the food was surprisingly really great (we were nervous given there was nobody there AND it was in a mediocre hotel), great service, portions weren't ridiculously huge - a good solid meal that wasn't terribly expensive - our only "complaint" if you want to call it that is the location and the environment of the restaurant - too outdated.
We had a wonderful meal at Level III and would go back for sure. The food was excellent, and the menu was varied and interesting. The best part was the waitstaff, and in particular our waitress who had perfect timing and a fantastic tableside manner! In fact, she had the kitchen concoct a special 20th Anniversary dessert for us that we were very impressed with. She even took a great picture! Thanks so much. Great food and atmosphere.
This restaurant is located in the JW Marriott so I arranged a meeting with colleagues in the restaurant at 4pm. I told the hostess that we would order coffee/espresso beverages but probably not any food from the menu as it was too early for dinner. She was very courteous and seated us. We were greeted by a server who took our order for Cappuccino and Coffee. We were the only guests in the restaurant. My guests and I were in a discussion when the server approached saying that the tables are only for dinner, but "we could stay since the entire restaurant was empty". His comment was entirely rude and completely inappropriate and his demeanor was condescending. Being the only table in the restaurant, we clearly were an annoyance to him.
