We were going to see the Japanese drums program at the Altria theater. That meant we were looking for a Japanese/sushi venue! This was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised. We were there at 5:30 on Friday and were the second set of customers in the restaurant. Have to tell you that the appetizers were great, I’ve never had gyoza with a thinner skin and they were wonderful. The rolls that we had were excellent! The server was helpful, attentive, and genuinely happy to offer suggestions. We are looking forward to our next visit!
Excellent sushi and lichee nut martinis to die for!
Ate here for a Valentine's day dinner. Food was excellent, as was service. Kitchen was a hair slow but I blame it on the holiday. Still went to eat and left in a reasonable time.
New to Richmond visiting with one of my best girlfriend. We love Asian food and this restaurant was very good. We were smart to have had a reservations because it got busy right behind our arrival and folks were waiting to be seated. As we dined we understood why, the food was top notch! Will satisfy the "foodies" in your circle. Prices reasonable and our waitress attentive, but not too much. I would have to say the one draw back is that the noise level is very loud. We found ourselves having to lean into one another across the table to be able to hear. Would revisit in the future.
Always a good meal at Level. Started with great duck bao and miso soup, and ended with a massive tray of great rolls. My wife got the pad thai (a first for us here as we normally get sushi) and it was very nice and tasty. Love the sweet potato roll, shrimp tempura roll, and chesapeake roll! Family favorite.
Overall a great experience.
We chose Level for our family Christmas Eve Asian food dinner. The food was great! The service was timely and accurate. We would choose Level again.
Definitely not my favorite.
This was our first eat in experience (having done take out a couple years ago). Was very pleased with experience. We enjoyed several rolls and some sushi. All was very fresh and tasty. Joey our server was great. Definitely recommend Level for sushi!!
Best sushi in town - excellent staff and service and the ambiance inside is incredible considering the outside looks less than stellar.
First time going & best I’ve ever had. Definitely going to be going back VERY SOON!!!
We finally found another restaurant that serves good sushi. The hot and sour soup was also the most substantial and tasty that I’ve had anywhere. We’ll be back.
I underestimated this place based on the outside and location. Well we were missing out. Have plans to return and I've told everyone about this place
Incredible sashimi so beautifully displayed!
Sat at the bar and had great service. The bar top is amazing with sensor lights and kept us entertained :) food was amazing! We will be back!
Great food as always! Great service. Only complaint is it’s really dark in the back where our table was
The server was amazing!
Nice atmosphere with extremely good sushi. Great happy hour as well! Will definitely be back!
Great food. Will be back.
We thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered, from the duck bao to the specialty sushi rolls. Some of the best sushi we’ve had in quite a while. We will be back. We had Dynamite roll, Mango Madness, and something Love that had fried tempura eel inside the roll. All delicious and easy to eat.
Never been before. Definitely favors the sushi crowd but had a great meal and drinks regardless. Will probably be back!
This is only the 2nd time I have used OpenTable. We arrived on time and waited almost 20 min. for our table. Our server was very impatient wanted our order before we even had drinks. Our dinner was excellent! I thought using OpenTable would of helped getting a table, but no. We have eaten many a dinner here and will go back. Just know you WILL wait, and don't bother with reservations.
GREAT EXPERIENCE. Third time going and it just keeps getting better (we were worried after last two).
Food is awesome (sticked with apps, sushi, and sashimi) and you can't beat the happy hour. Only crazy thing is they only have one bartender for the whole restaurant and bar during Saturday happy hour. No barbacks, nada. It's not a small bar either. I swore someone must have called out but nope, we asked and that's how they do it. Definitely was backed up there for a while, waiting to order, for drinks, and to place food orders...bartender was clearly in the weeds. But after he caught up and happy hour ended things were great .
It was our first time and we enjoyed it.
Love the food and fun ambiance. The Love Boat is a great value and the presentation is very festive. The service was slow the night we were there, but will try again.
Sushi was outstanding as were the speciality drinks and the attitude and customer focused service from our waiter. We will be back!
Level continues to surprise me with beautifully plated, carefully prepared, and deliciously fresh sushi and sashimi. What a treasure.
I hope they will stop using plastic straws soon. Sushi is good. Off street parking is great!
It took a while for a server to arrive to take our drink order, but from that point forward, the service was outstanding and attentive. Food was plated beautifully and delicious. Easily the best sushi spot in RVA.
We had the love boat. It was the most sushi and sashimi I've ever eaten. A good experience besides the self-inflicted wasabi fire in my nose. This time it was 3 different tunas salmon and red clam.
I found Level on Open Table while looking for somewhere new to eat in Richmond. We read the great reviews and off we went! We got there a little bit earlier than our reservation. We walked in and the lady didn’t say anything, she just pointed to a seat and told us to sit. I tried to tell her that we had an Open Table reservation but to disregard since we got sat earlier. She interrupted me before I could even finish my sentence and walked off. Not a great way to start off the evening.
However, when we were introduced to our waitress (someone that wasn’t the rude lady who initially greeted us), faith was restored. We told her that this was the first time we’d been there and she made us feel so welcome. She recommended what appetizers and sushi rolls we should try and she was just accommodating and amazing overall.
We did order drinks and let me tell you, you definitely get the bang for your buck! They do NOT skimp on the alcohol there. If you’re a lightweight, plan on having a DD.
The food was delicious! I loved the portion sizes as they weren’t small like some of the upscale places around town but they also weren’t overwhelmingly large like you would get at your typical Asian restaurant. Everything we had was hot, cooked perfectly and was just great!
We will definitely be back and plan on introducing friends and family to this hidden gem. Hopefully the hostess changes her tude by then!
The sushi chef at Level continues to surprise me with his creations. The soft shell crab roll was particularly delicious. Each plate is beautifully composed... almost a shame to wreck it by eating its contents but I never hesitate.
Made a reservation through opentable. When we got there we were standing around for 15 minutes because they didn’t receive our reservation. We were eventually shown upstairs and sat at a small bar table.
Food was too weird and not very tasty.
Another solid meal at Level. We always enjoy our dinners at Level and this night was no exception. Great food, great service, and good fun. Will be back!
The food was delicious! The service was great, a little slow to get our food , but it was worth the wait!! Definitely will be back and recommend to my friends!!
Delicious sushi, friendly staff and nice happy hour specials
Great neighborhood gem with fantastic selection of sushi. Friendly, prompt and attentive service too.
