Controller MLS clearance. We received clearance to 6000 ft and readback and confirmed between crew and descended to 6000 ft. When reaching 6000 ft, controller call ed and informed us that our clearance was to 7000 ft. We replied that we copied and read back 6000 ft and we were told to maintain 6000 ft. After landing, we phoned bay approach and were told by manager that there was 'no event' as far as they were concerned, nothing happened.
