I came here with a few girlfriends for my engagement celebration. We did the drag brunch and when I say phenomenal, it was beyond that. The place is small and the bathrooms can definitely use some updating. Food was great! I had the salmon salad,...More

I have NEVER had a bad time here. I've sat here with friends, lovers, and family and enjoyed it every single time. It has actually gotten better believe it or not. Mimosas are my weakness so bottomless ones make my life so much better. lol

Good food, good service, good patio. I would recommend this place for Sunday or Saturday brunch. People are nice and the food is good. Great to sit and watch the people walk by.

This place is for fun loving open minded individuals. During Breakfast they provide a FABULOUS drag queen Show. They love audience participation. If you can hang, tips are optional, I encourage to have them available. We had a GREAT time!

Located in DuPont Circle, Level One is casual. The perfect place for the first date or friends meeting for dinner. Large parties are no problem, the music's great & the atmosphere is pure energy. A huge outdoor patio is perfect for people watching. Saturday and Sunday brunch is very busy and first come first serve. Sorry, no reservations for parties of less than 10 for brunch.
