Is the gradient perpendicular to all surfaces or just level surfaces?

For instance, if I I have a function f(x,y)=z where z is the dependent variable then that is a surface, wouldn't that be a level surface to a function of x,y,z so shouldn't the gradient also be perpendicular to the surface and level surface?
