“love the innovative cocktails..”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This place takes Annapolis to a whole new LEVEL..that it desperately needs. The cocktail menu is amazingly inventive. The unique flavors they provide using natural herbs enhances any normal, everyday drink. Love the small plate idea since you can taste a lot of different menu options. The owner is sweetheart and makes sure you are well taken care of as one of his customers.

“Hard to choose my favorite dish!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

I went to Level based on reviews and it did not disappoint. Every dish we had was so good from the fried brussel sprouts to the scallops to the bread pudding! We had an outstanding, reasonably priced Cabernet and our waiter was great too. The ambiance is fun as well!

“Local Sourcing Star!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

The move to local sourcing brings marvelous food to the table. Couple local source with the small plate movement, and a star is born! This lively place focuses on foods from the area with dairy products & cheeses from western, central & The Shore in Maryland, oysters from Maryland, lamb from Pennsylvania, beef from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley - you get the picture.

Food choices are ingeniously grouped: from the field, from the pasture, from the water and accompanied by group plates to share (appetizers) or flatbreads. An ample selection of dessert plates tops off your meal if you choose.

Wine and bar selection superb. Rare to order a pisco sour without getting, "A what?" By the way, mine was expertly prepared.

We chose the hand cut fries to share (just the right seasoning - piquant), the special - a bison bolognese with gnocchi, fried brussel sprouts, and shrimp & grits: 1 from the field, 1 from the pasture, 1 from the water & 1 from group plates to share! While all were good, everyone thought the shrimp & grits superlative - spicy & colorful!

Our only disappointment was the French press bland and weak coffee. The luscious chocolate bread pudding and pot de creme more than wiped out memories of a lagging coffee.

“Great value and food!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Loved it. We sat upstairs, in the corner table closest to the front window. Yes, it can be loud. It was loud (plus the obnoxious House Wives of Annapolis) table next to us didn't help, but that did not make it a less enjoyable meal at all. The plates were all amazing (except the duck/parm cheese risotto -- that was the blandest risotto I have ever had but hey nothing's perfect). But between our party of 8 we ordered a lot of small plates and the rest of the dishes were great. The value is great too, I'm not saying its inexpensive when I say good value, but you get what you paid for in the quality of food. I like the new farm-to-table places popping up and this one sets the bar pretty high. And they serve Moscow Mules! One of my favorite drinks ... you can't beat that! Definitely take a crew with you, order a lot, drink a lot (safely of course) and have a great night!

“Good food but a bit loud”
Reviewed March 30, 2014
