Level Five is a moderately priced restaurant for a good dinner before a show at the Guthrie. It's best attributes are its proximity to the shows and the low noise volume such that one can actually converse with friends without shouting and sacrificing one's hearing....More

We had dinner here before the theatre. Limited menu but we had no problem selecting our meal. I had the corned beef sandwich and my husband had the burger. Both were very good. Nice selection of moderately priced wines. Jacob was our server. Excellent service.

This place is perfectly located in the Guthrie to cater to pre-dinner theater goers. On a predictably busy Friday, we arrived quite early 6.00 pm and were informed two dinner entrees were (already) sold out. Well, OK. Two glasses of wine were forgotten by our...More
