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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 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.
