My friend and I started off our Saturday evening dinner with a suggestion from our server. We tried some cheesy pork croquettes which featured a light and crispy coating. I liked that these were not too greasy and enjoyed dipping them in the accompanying sauces.

We couldn't skip out on dessert so we ordered two items from the dessert menu. Level Two features changing flavors of housemade ice creams and on the evening we dined, we tried strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla, all topped with fresh berries. I loved the strong, fresh flavor of the strawberry ice cream and appreciated having the nice topping of blackberries and blueberries on top.

|Flourless Chocolate Cake with Walnuts, Caramel & Sea Salt|
Overall, it's clear there are some high quality ingredients that go into each dish at Level Two. The menu is varied enough to please any palate, and the atmosphere is clean, modern, and classy. However, it's clear they still have some service kinks to work out since they are fairly new, and the cocktail menu could use a little less sugar, and a lot more creativity.
I will not be giving a star rating as Level Two covered the cost of our meal.
