Level was established as a locals first atmosphere with welcoming attitudes to all. The cocktails are all handcrafted with fresh juices, mixes, and garnishes. One of the many things that makes us unique is our ability and commitment to source as many fresh ingredients locally from the State of Maryland and surrounding markets. We are dedicated to supporting the area small businesses, watermen, farmers, and the environment on a local and global level. Our small plates style of dining encourages this sense of community and sharing. Level is located on the second block of West Street known as the Arts District.

The food was ok. We had to wait a long time to order. We could not get water almost the entire dinner because the dishes were being cleaned. We could not get serving spoons for the dishes. The place was too noisy. The price was too high given the experience

Everyone is so nice at Level! Never a bad thing to say about the people and food and drinks are always outstanding. Our favorite date night place! Never get rid of the fries or tuna tartare

Better than expected with reasonable portions for small plates. Somewhat noisy on the side with the bar and lloks like some sound absorbing panels have been removed from the ceiling.

We had several small plates. All were delicious. Quinoa and snap peas, lamb, tomatoes and feta, French fries were standouts. The speciality mojito was a scrumptious concoction.
Our server was extraordinary. She had multiple tables (too many) but she was always there and joyful in her work.

Have dined at Level with great results for several years. Always have had great experiences and food until Sunday 5/30/21. Maybe they're still adjusting to regular business post-pandemic? A lot of new staff? The service was waaaay off. Fortunately the food was still pretty good. It will be a while before I feel like spending the $ to eat there again.

30 May 2021/7PM: Restaurant was loud - they need sound absorbing acoustic panels or something to reduce reverberation. Restaurant was out of coffee and potatoes (for fries) and several other menu items but did not mention it until after we ordered. Restaurant made substitutions for ingredients without mentioning this to us ( for example, the blood Orange curd was made with standard orange juice). Overall, the food was average and unimpressive.
Servers were friendly but the host was less than hospitable when we arrived.

Alice was our server and she was great on recommendations ! Brussel sprouts were delicious! Sweet slightly spiced. Calamari light ! Salmon done just perfectly All the dishes are small plates and the four of us shared the dinner. They are know for the cocktails and we enjoyed the bourbonnnapolis. Cute place great service and highly recommend.

Food was very good. Service was super friendly, but they kept checking on us, and then forgetting what we asked for- wine, water refills... that’s what made it not 5 star. To be fair we were sitting outside because of covid, and they had many more tables inside, which had great ambience, so that may be why we were hard to remember.

We were completely rushed from the time we sat down and throughout our meal. Our waiter apologized several times however that did not alleviate the pressure we felt to eat quickly which completely took away our ability to enjoy the evening. In addition, we were never told the bar was closing and when someone joined us they were unable to order drinks. Very disappointed.

First time out to a fancy dinner since beginning of pandemic, this was a really spectacular way to break the fast! Service was prompt but not rushed, food great and enabled lots of cross-talk amongst our four about what we wanted to share together. We arrived at 8 on a Saturday, and noise was a bit high, even with reduced seating; we stayed until 11:30 and folks drifted away and talking was easier. Even as they were cleaning up, no sense that they needed us to depart - and we enjoyed every minute of it.

We had a reservation for 4 people and were meeting another couple at the restaurant. There was much confusion about finding the reservation when I arrived. The other couple arrived first and were seated upstairs in the back although there were many tables throughout. Two alcoholic drinks ordered by the other couple tasted like water and the server was told so. We were credited for one of the drinks. Food was left on the table throughout the entire meal. Plates were not cleared for a very long time after food had been eaten. It was quite unappealing to sit there with food left on plates. Servers did not come back at the end of the meal to see if we needed a check. I had to get up and go to the bar for the check. Very disappointing experience! We do not plan to return.

I’d come back here for the drinks and atmosphere. We had the crab and arancini and cornbread as appetizers and the scallops and NY strip steak special for our main courses. Highlight was the steak, the other dishes were not worth the price on my opinion.

This is just the way that I like to eat! Lots of little tastes of things. I have been dying to go to this place for a long time, but one thing or another kept us from being able to make it! I was so glad we finally did! Everything we had was great! Also I am gluten free and they had lots of options! It will now be a favorite go to! We will go back!!!

Very tasty “small” plates but They are big portions!!!
Friendly service but could improve by not rushing courses.
Love this place and food that is different/more gourmet from more traditional fare in Annapolis. Will definitely go back!!

Tapas locally sourced. Unique drinks poured to perfection! Fast and kind service! I highly recommend starting your night in Annapolis here! We actually ordered four things (get the sprouts) then decided we needed more! We came for our anniversary and will be back! Plus, get a famous gimlet to go!

We did not make it to a table. The hosts were so disorganized and had no idea what they were doing. They took people and seated them without reservations before us. It was such a mess that we just left.

The menu was new for spring. The food was excellent. The biggest surprise was the vegan paella. Great side dish to accompany the other plates. Calamari and ahi tuna were winners, too. Our server was excellent.

Wait staff was great. But the food was just ok and the sangria was very underwhelming. We are local so we’ve eaten here at least a half dozen times. The past two have definitely been less than great. It used to be really wonderful.

Really neat food, excellent service, fun atmosphere, and really well made drinks. They’ve succeeded in finding a really interesting niche between fru-fru and ordinary. The locally sourced ingredients make it interesting, a little bit unpredictable (fun), and responsible. Our server Cheyenne was extraordinary... she went above and beyond putting up with our questions and changes! Very cool place!

Thank you PapaBear! We are working on the Spring menu currently and will definitely take a look at that as an option.
