We had 3 plates and enjoyed them all. Roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon pieces and creme fraiche were tasty. If you are a Mac and cheese Person you will love this one, rich, creamy, full flavored with a delightful touch of gouda. The ribs were tender and succulent with an Asian flavor-pleasing without being overpowering.

I am ok with a smaller plate if priced correctly. I did not like paying Entree prices for smaller than average appetizers.

The food was excellent. Sat upstairs on Saturday. Made a reservation through Open Table and was seated right away. Our Server, Sam, was good for the first drink, but maybe as the restaurant filled up he realized we were only a party of two. Well, if he had ever come back to the table, he could have tripled the bill. We left hungry and need of a drink (not water).

Took my girlfriend out to dinner with a few other friends to celebrate her engagement and everything was amazing! Not one complaint. Food, server and atmosphere was above and beyond. Not to mention it didn’t break the bank either. Highly recommend!

I reserved a “semi-private booth upstairs” for a business chat and it was just that, for about 2 minutes. A couple was sat right next to us almost immediately, literally less than a foot away. Nothing about the chat needed to be private, but the place was about half full. It was odd to have them sat almost with us with so many open tables.

Our waiter was great and so was the bartender. The ladies at the head were extremely condescending to a, I presume new, waitress. You could really feel the tension in the air, started the night off on an uneasy note. She had a good clap back tho!

I’m not a fish person, but the scallops were absolutely amazing. Soft like butter, immaculate. The steak on the other hand was blue. I wasn’t asked how I would’ve been liked it prepared and had I been it would’ve been medium-rare.

I’d recommend going, if only for the scallops, at least once to see how you like it!

We ate upstairs and everything was fine but the bathrooms were really really disgusting, i felt like I was at a bar. I know you cant clean up after everyone but it was bad and everyone in my group that went in came back warning how bad and which one to stay away from and I am pretty sure all were covered.

I've been to Level several times and have enjoyed it each time. This visit was my first in two or three months. I was happy to see several new items on the menu. These are always very creative and I cannot recall a single plate that I have not enjoyed. The highlight of this visit perhaps was the Chorizo dip with Naan. Pretty spicy for this part of the country and a great mix of flavors. Really fun spot and great place for sharing plates.

This was a welcome find on a night. It is a relatively new restaurant, and it did not disappoint. It had a good wine selection, and the tapas style menu allowed us to really enjoy some interesting and tasty bites. The waiter was well informed and assisted us to navigate the best way to enjoy the evening. We would recommend this to any of our closest friends and family.

Perfect choice for large group on New Years. Especially loved the scallops, Brie and fig melt, gnocchi, and mixed green salad was a fresh bite between courses. Hubby loved the cauliflower and chorizo dip was a spicy hit. Vegetarian in the group had a lot of choices... enjoyed the Mac and cheese and hummus spread plate, along with fig melt. Everyone had fun tasting many dishes.

We could have gone anywhere on Christmas Eve but wanted a small plate tapas venue for something light to eat. I had been to Level for a 40th birthday party and LOVED the food. Interesting, eclectic tapas and great wine made for a lovely Christmas Eve. The bruschetta was amazing!

There were four of us (three women and one man) and we ordered eleven small plates plus one dessert. It was the perfect amount of food and every dish was delicious. The Lime Gimlet with the lime foam on top may be my favorite cocktail ever. So good! Server was knowledgeable and super friendly. Loved this place!

I was disappointed that the restaurant was so well lit on a Saturday night. My husband and I went for an early dinner (we have two small kids) and the upstairs was as bright as midday despite it being 545pm and pitch black out (December). At one point the air conditioning went on so we got cold as well. They corrected the issue quickly though.
Great food but I don’t think I’d go again on a date given the bright lights.
