Great environment and lots of tasty small plate choices... tuna tartar, brussel sprouts, calamari, tacos, ... and then top it off with some warm cookies and milk!

We had quite a few of the small plates, which were very small for the price, but pretty delicious! The drinks were fabulous as well. The only thing I was disappointed by was the S'more dessert. I was so excited to end my meal with it, and it was so disgusting. The graham crackers tasted stale and the chocolate was not even melted. Would totally go back for Happy Hour though if that helped make the price more reasonable.

Valentine’s Day dinner with my momma! Food was great. The Brussels sprouts were so amazing. The steak and mashed potatoes were very good. The potatoes were prefect but the steak was slightly salty. The tuna tartare was delicious. The vegan paella needed more flavor and veggies. The s’mores dessert was amazing!! Overall it was very good.

We love Level - have been there a number of times and it never disappoints. The small plate concept is great and allows us to sample several different apps/entrees as it is tough to just pick one or two. Service is always excellent - Easton is the best!

My boyfriend and I went in on Super Bowl Sunday for a relaxed dinner. We were one of two tables in the whole restaurant, and we decided to sit at the bar to be socially distanced. Jen was knowledgeable and punctual, and I can’t wait to go back. I got the mule and the cold brew martini, both of which were phenomenal. This restaurant is tapas styled, so for an appetizer we got the old bay frites and the Mediterranean plate, and for dinner we chose the chicken and dumplings and the pork belly tacos. It was the best chicken and dumplings I’ve ever had! To top it all off, I got the s’mores skillet for dessert and my boyfriend had the cheesecake. All of it was made with care and it showed. Thank you thank you thank you for taking care of us!

I enjoy going here to try different items. On this occasion tried the fried catfish, duck risotto and the crab cake. All were excellent. The duck risotto was the surprise of the three. Not all restaurants do a good job with duck so I was not sure what to expect, but it was outstanding. I’ll be back soon to see what the chef is cooking.

Great food, a little pricey but worth it. Wife and I enjoyed it and we went on 1/29/21. Near the end I thought our waiter was ignoring us when the time was wrapping up for the check but I think one of the managers (didn't catch her name but she had on a black face mask, long brown or reddish/pink dress, and black boots) was very nice and got us our check when I off-handedly mentioned wanting it and apologized and said they had a call out. I understood that as I have worked in food service before. Overall, I'd definitely go again.

Food and service were excellent. Portions of food for the price was not what I thought. Very small. I realize it’s small plate dining but it was really light. Chicken and dumplings had like 6 pea sized dumplings and less than a spoonful of chicken. Only portion that was worth it was the dessert. Atmosphere was excellent. Service was excellent. We don’t drink alcohol,so maybe not really the place to go to enjoy dinner without drinking. Overall good experience. Hate to bash serving size but I eat a Vin 909 often and the small plates are much larger servings of food.

We love Level - we have gone to it 4 times in a short period. Their Gimlet is one of the best drinks we’ve ever had, and their Brussels sprouts are great too. We always get the best service and love Omar. He makes a killer lemon drop martini.

Love Level! Had a couple of great cocktails! The Granada Old Fashioned was an interesting twist in the standard old fashioned for this time of year with rosemary infused bourbon and cranberry butters. Subtle Christmas in a glass. And the Gimlet is my go-to amd did not disappoint! We had four small plates, all of which we were delicious.

Absolutely amazing on all fronts! I love the tapas-style presentation of the food and everything we tried not only came out in good-sized portions, but it was all SO GOOD. The cocktails are great, the wine list is very nice, and the hospitality we received from everyone from the moment we walked in the door was top-notch; we felt so welcomed and comfortable in this beautiful restaurant. Looking forward to ordering more food and cocktails-to-go during this ridiculous month-long shut-down of restaurants here in Annapolis!

We tried the Gimlet - absolutely incredible. Did not have any food and just stopped for drinks. Fell in love and our bartender was great.

Restaurant was spacious inside and we weren’t near anyone, which we appreciated. Came back the next day to enjoy more Gimlets and try their tuna tartare.

We were given a gift certificate for our anniversary, and while I enjoyed the night out I am surprised at the reputation of this restaurant. It was extremely expensive for the slightest amount of food (yes, I realize it is "small plates"...wondering why anyone would pay full meal prices for a child's portion!). I must say, the gimlet was delicious, though. Probably will never go back.

Our server Omar took excellent care of us. We opted to eat outside in the tent. Omar made sure the heater was on and that we were warm enough. He was also as attentive to us as anyone could have been if we were sitting inside.
The food here is always yummy. It is one of our favorite neighborhood go-to’s.

I had been to level before and really enjoyed it. Now we are in the age of Covid so I must be lenient. I spent almost $300 including tip and we did have 5 Alcoholic drinks 3 adults and 2 boys 16 Thought that was way too Expensive
