The food was delicious! Chef knows what’s what. Everything was delectable, well sized, and special! Even the Brussels were unique. Wait staff was helpful and knowledgeable without being obtrusive. Loved this place and will definitely return!

We've been wanting to try this place and glad we did. We had 7:45pm reservations. Seated upstairs. Our waitress, Courtney, was delightful. Loved the Pork Belly tacos. A tad pricey, but then again maybe we should not have had that 3rd glass of wine :-)

We loved the unique variety and exceptional combinations of tastes on the menu. We started with the cheese plate and the Charcuterie plate. The pate and the goat cheese were my personal favorites. My boyfriend loved the blue cheese and the pâté
I had the grilled steak and it was so tender it practically melted in my
Mouth. My boyfriend had Duck confit and we shared the pastrami cured salmon - sooo good
Dessert was the s’mores for me , deconstructed cheesecake and banana bread pudding for my boyfriend
Our server Sam was great and we met the chef as he came to our table! So
Nice :-)

Dinner for 4 of us on a Wednesday evening. Not a busy night, but the service and food were wonderful, as usual. Enjoyed a nice relaxing dinner with nobody next to us in any direction. Everything spotless and Omar did a terrific job taking care of us. A keeper for sure.

Took my young son on a weeknight. No problem getting a table. The server, Omar, was excellent! He addressed my son directly, which was very kind. The food was delicious! Dessert was fantastic! We had the s'mores skillet and the cookies with cereal milk. We will definitely go back.

Great food in a small plates setting. A bit pricey depending upon what is ordered, but the happy hour specials are a good deal! Go for the Bourbonapolis cocktail!

Dishes were good, drinks were excellent. It's still winter here but the dining are was freezing cold, almost uncomfortable to be there. Service was slow our server was not very attentive. A better place for drinks and snacks than your dinner.

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.
