Level Small Plates Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Food was good but nothing special. I had higher expectations. For the value of the food I was expecting a higher class of service. Servers and hostesses in jeans and sneakers while our bill was an easy $150 for the two of us. Server was great. Drinks were good. Food was good again not amazing.
Outstanding food and service! We ordered 7 small plate items for the 2 of us, and all of them were just excellent. The grilled scallops and biscuits with rabbit gravy were especially delicious. A little pricey, but the top quality and taste of the food were definitely worth it. I understand the menu is seasonal. We'll definitely be back.
First timer and went for Valentine’s day: this is a small plates restaurant. So you can go wild with the variety — and we did! It’s a basic party by trying the different plates and they were tremendous! Try this: instead of a traditional dessert, try their butternut squash donuts, which is listed as an appetizer. Healthy and oh so good!
Also, an open lively atmosphere in the hip part of Annapolis. You will love it!
I planned a party for my friend’s birthday & invited 10 of her good friends. I had to call the restaurant 3 or 4 times with questions. The first time I left a message and received a call back within an hour. The other times my questions were answered immediately and thoughtfully.
The restaurant was wonderfully accommodating. Our server was polite and patient with our large group. And the food was excellent! Each plate was better than the next in creativity, presentation and taste! I would highly recommend the scallops and the shrimp and lettuce wraps.
My only regret is that I live in Philadelphia so I won’t be able to get back any time soon!
We had a wonderful time at Level! We tried something from each part of the menu. Our absolute favorites were the short rib with carrot puree and the banana bread pudding! We enjoyed all of our food. We did wish the charcuterie had some crackers or a harder bread, but that may be our preference. We would recommend it!
We have to give this restaurant a mixed review. The bartenders and the drinks were fabulous and we loved the drink special on New Year's Eve. The food was mostly cold which is why we are giving such a low rating. We made our reservation well in advance, when many times were available on opentable and yet we were given the least desirable table after WATCHING other diners decline the table for 40 minutes. In our opinion, the hostess showed NO customer service and interpersonal skills at the most basic level. We felt disrespected and as though we were an inconvenience. We may try this restaurant one more time, but if the service is this poor again, we won't be back.
Good food! Small plates so need to share to really get the full experience. Wait staff needs some help though. Not very friendly and way to busy to support the small staff. Nice cocktails but really need to get a wine list that complements the variety of food they offer. The worst part of the expire Nice is the notice level..... not enjoyable for dining..... way to LOUD
We enjoyed our first visit to Level. The drinks are amazing (try the Gimlet!). We tried several of the small plates. The pork spring tools were excellent, the roasted mushroom salad was different but very tasty, Brussels sprouts were ok, scallops and shrimp lettuce wraps were quite good. We spent just about $100 for these items and two drinks each.
We try something new for our monthly date night, and Level was the finalist this month. It was a cold and snowy night but well worth the outing. The food was delicious! We shared a 5 or so of the small tapas style plates and couldn't have been happier. The chorizo dip was delicious as were all of the other plates. We sat upstairs close to the bar area and had a fairly quiet evening. I'm assuming no one else wanted to venture out that night. The ambiance is inviting and warm with a touch of romanticism. We'll add this onto our list of places to revisit!
Four of us had a great get-together meal at Level. The small plates were generous enough to share, and crafted with loving care. Every dish we tasted was outstanding, including duck confit, which reminded me of my grandmother's duck (a true compliment) and red snapper. Service was attentive and informative, with good recommendations.
We tried this restaurant based on the very high review rating it got on open table. We were very disappointed with the meal. We totally understand the tapas style of dining and enjoy the fact that the items are small and typically a large selection of items to choose from. Although, there was a nice selection the number of items was much less than we see for this type of restaurant. However, our BIGGEST issue was that when the last 2 items arrived they were lukewarm at best and the plates were cold. We would have sent them back to the kitchen but getting a servers attention was absolutely impossible so rather than let the items get any colder we finished them off, drank our wine and went someplace else to enjoy a fantastic desert.
Went to Level for my husband's birthday and invited his parents with. They do not usually experiment with restaurants, but LOVED Level. The small plate experience was something they had never tried, but truly enjoyed it. While everything starts at $8-10/ plate, they give enough for everyone to have a small portion. There were 4 of us, which turned out to be perfect since any more would have meant ordering two plates of everything in order for everyone to try.
Also, delicious cocktails! Try the Bourbonappolis!
Came in for a late dinner after watching a show on a Saturday evening. This was one of the few places in Annapolis that was opened and had a diverse menu. There was not one dish that I wouldn't have considered to order. The service was excellent and the quality to the price ratio was great.
