    The food was sublime, the wine list was very good, and the staff were knowledgeable, helpful, but not too overwhelming. Spot on. I'd say the noise levels were extremely high. My hearing is fine, but it was difficult to hear my dinner companion, which made the experience slightly less good than it could have been. I'm not sure what they can do to make this better - we were there at 8pm on a Saturday, which is probably peak noise. However, all the other elements meant I'd definitely go again, but maybe at a quieter time.

    Levan is quite an expensive place to eat, at least it is by my standards, but the cooking does feel special. Everything we ate was utterly delicious... plates were wiped clean with bread and then fingers. No shame when the sauces are that good. It was full, Saturday night, but the service was attentive/not intrusive and knowledgeable. Took us a little while to get the bill, but that's the only small negative and it was peak busy time so not complaining. Overall, a memorable and very satisfying evening.

    I'd not been to Levan for about a year - cost of living and all that - and had forgotten just how incredible their food is. We had the chefs menu with friends and every dish was absolutely delicious. Love the fact you leave feeling completely satisfied without being overly full. Note to self to come back again soon.

    We went to Levan and tried the chef's tasting menu - 5 courses. The food was truly brilliant: a fish-based menu, salty and creamy and delicious throughout. My one criticism would be that the portions are quite small - so much so that you might be a little disappointed as they make their way to the table. However, my partner and I were full upon leaving the restaurant, so perhaps this is a case of our eyes being bigger than our stomach. Still, I might recommend the restaurant to pad the plates out just a little bit more. Final note - the bread was a standout, served warm with salted butter. Always a very good sign in a restaurant.

    Every morsel at Levan brings sensuous delight. It takes the pleasure from food to a whole new level. The chefs are genius. And the service was both super slick and entirely personable. We brought a friend from Rome to eat with us and she was as impressed as we have been not only with the food but with the wine list.

    We had a fantastic meal at Levan. The food was delicious (we had several plates to share), drinks were great too (a wonderful wine list), and the service was really good - super helpful, just the right level of attentiveness, and just generally really nice people and a lovely vibe. Really enjoyed it, and would highly recommend!

    The food was great and the service was friendly BUT… the table we were given was minuscule and the waiters brought all the sharing plates at once, I felt like I was under pressure to eat really fast just to clear some space on the table. I didn’t even have somewhere to put my drink down… unnecessary stress really when they could have just served stuff with more care Other than that really good

    Levan always does a knock-out seasonal menu, and this time (October) was no exception. They use great seasonal produce with bold flavors and it's all beautifully presented. Nothing is over-engineered or pretentious, just great food. My gf is a pescatarian and their veggie/fish substations are as always just good as their meat counterparts. They do great value wine pairings too, with plenty of interesting wines for a good price. The best seat is at the counter so you can watch the chefs work their magic. 10/10 every time. Thanks!

    Woman who met us at the door was not friendly, did not smile or welcome us, just marched off and we guessed we were intended to follow. Our actual waiter was nice but seemed harassed, I guess it is quite hard work serving 5 courses to so many people in such a tight space. Very interesting food but expensive and such a small room that feels a bit claustrophobic. We were seated near the loo and waiters and other customers were constantly jostling passing us so not relaxing.
