Great service. Food was good. Prices were high for some of the plates. $15 for 3 scallops is a bit pricey.

Nice place!! Upstairs-downstairs- it was Freezing when we were here - Freezing since we were at Dinner-time, and it had not filled up. The French fries are delicious- the seafood charcuterie is a good idea- but cut so thin -I could not really discern any flavor except in the more regular salmon. Drinks are good and nice wine list! Fun place

Great food from an innovative menu, and a friendly and attentive waiter. The only negative aspect was the table we were given by the hostess, despite a reservation from a few days before and lots of empty tables: a small two-top near the bar, at the edge of a wall separating the two main dining areas. Possibly the worst table in the restaurant, the one they save for last when they're really crowded because it has such high traffic/noise. Hostess just put the menus down and walked away.

Had a nice dinner with friends. The Tuna Tartare in a spicy oil with pita chips and the charcuterie tray with homemade pickles, 2 cheeses and fresh pate were very good. Everyone ordered something and shared. I enjoyed my gimlet and our friends enjoyed the sangria.

We live close to Annapolis and had tickets for Rams Head to see Hot Tuna. The place was very nice, with lots to choose from on the drinks and food menus. We had the charcuterie board with the best pate ever. Fried Brussel sprouts were a bit underdone, and had the Banh Mi and Spicy Ahi tuna. It was a really good dining experience and the wait staff was attentive but not intrusive.

The portion size of the small plates and REALLY small. However, the price of the plates are about what an actual meal at most other places. The mixed drinks are good. If I go back, I will just order and share the tuna, beet salad and french fries. The rest of the menu is just ok. A 'real' small plates restaurant is Ambar in DC and Virginia. They offer very good food, smaller servings to share and try things but the prices are 1/2 what Level charges. I give Level credit, they charge for a meal and give less than an appetizer! What a business model!

The food was ok but came up short with each small plate. We were also put in a room with a loud 20 person birthday party which destroyed any chance of enjoying the night.

I would be devastated if I missed dining at Levels when I visit Annapolis. The food is very good and well served. We are welcomed at the door and seated in an area which is very comfortable and we request ahead of time.

The management should be applauded for what must be excellent training and supervision to maintain the high standards which exist over time in the areas of food and service.

Excellent tapas restaurant, with the recommended 2 to 3 plates per person proving to be a little too much. Our group of four ordered seven dishes, and we were all pretty full. Food once again delicious, excellently and lovingly prepared. We would have liked a little more guidance from our waiter regarding the selections.

Cocktails are amazing, their small plates are delicious. We all ordered a chartucerie board to split and then 2 plates each and that seemed to be enough. 3 probably wouldn't have hurt if you're really hungry!

Another fine tapas experience at Level. Service was most excellent - Jake was our server and took great care of our table of six. Most memorable dishes - the cauliflower dip and brussels sprouts were the most memorable. That dip alone is worth the trip - and I'm not a cauliflower fan. Good drink/wine selection. Highly recommend.

The lighting in the front room is so bright! We were laughing with the table next to us about how we can see the flaws in our makeup under the brights lights.
The food wasn’t as good as previous occasions. I guess my expectations were high. I’ll go back to try it again, I have had wonderful meals at Level before... but I will never, ever sit under the lights of the front room again!

The food was delicious from starter plates to dessert!!! Our only complaint is that the drinks we ordered (sangria and margaritas) were chockful of ice that greatly diluted the flavor--and probably alcohol-content--of the beverages. Stick to the wines or cocktails that are normally not served with ice cubes.

We had such an amazing dinner our first time that we returned the next night! The apple & arugula salad with blue cheese was so fresh and flavorful and you must order the hand cut fries with Thyme! The second night the fries were crispier, but both nights excellent. The highlight dishes are the tuna tartar -amazing flavor and again super fresh, the braised short rib with carrot puree - the most tender and delicious I have ever eaten. Our server was not only attentive - but super helpful in answering questions and even made our reservation for the next night! Having traveled to many places, including NYC, London, Boston, etc., this restaurant is truly top notch. We did not have any of their signature cocktails, but they too looked fantastic. Our two wine selections were perfect with our dinners. Highly recommend.

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.
