Mother's Day successHad a very nice time with a diverse group of 7, with varying tastes. Happily, all were satisfied. I loved the Chicken and waffles, which was awesome. Large portion of boneless chicken, perfectly crispy coating, with moist interior. The gravy was especially good, and the dish also comes with a nice dollop of pecan butter. Wow. Delicious.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent for Mother's Day BrunchI could not have been more happy with my entire experience at Cafeteria 15L. I had made reservations and then had to add an additional 3 people the night before. I was told that we would have to squeeze 9 people into a table that serves 8 and I totally understood. Due to the fact that it was last minute, I said we would make it work. When we arrived 15 minutes early, not only did they seat us right away but they upgraded our table to fit 12 people so we were not crammed!!! It was awesome! Immediately I ordered a Bloody Mary and it was top-notch - spicy like I ordered!! Also, our waitress Karen could not have been more awesome! Not only did she provide excellent service, she happily split up our bill in accordance to the 3 groups we had!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have never been disappointedWe have never been disappointed when we have dined here. The service and food are always excellent. Whether you order a small plate and a salad or a full entree, the food is always prepared as described and delicious.
We come here for many special occassions like birthdays and always have a wonderful experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!Food and service were great! I was there for a business lunch and our server was attentive without being overly agreesive.

Service was prompt but we didn't feel rushed. A very pleasant way to spend a lunch hour downtown.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food. Great service.Wonderful food. Great service. Nice outside patio. A bit noise... But not terrible.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love this place. Its ourWe love this place. Its our regular, before the theater dining establishment.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a fun place to goThis is a fun place to go and a great location. We used the valet parking and then left our car there while we went to the theater. I tried the Prawn Haystack appetizer. It had a raw egg yolk on the bottom. I was dubious, but it was delicious. The egg made a great sauce - I would definitely order it again. I also ordered the French Onion soup. I had had this before and thought it was delicious. Unfortunately they changed the recipe. It was now like a grilled cheese sandwich on top of onion stew. Still tasty, but I was really looking forward to the yummy broth and not something so thick.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat part of the bar/loungeGreat part of the bar/lounge area at 15 and L in downtown sac. Features delicious upscale versions of comfort food, smart and tasty non-alcoholic and alcoholic cocktails, reasonable prices and attentive, friendly service.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome, just awesome.Great place with amazing food. Loved the style and ambiance. I wish I lived less than 500 miles away so I could go more frequently.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMYour Server Can MakeorBreak It.Our meals were all very good. The evening was made much more enjoyable as we had a wonderful young server. She was excellent, answered all our questions with a smile and great attitude.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than mama used to makeI live in West Sacramento, but I'm a native of the Central City. Love seeing all the changes to the downtown dining scene. Found Cafeteria15 through Open Table when looking for a place to take out-of-town guests. Great food, super bar and a comfortable ambiance. LOVED the tomato soup! Waiter was a tad attentive, but not what I would call bad. Food was delivered promptly and hot, and the waiter was informed and helpful with choosing from the menu.
I thought the portions were large, but that made for a good lunch the next day.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the trio of fries.Loved the trio of fries. Generous quantity, reasonable price, and tasty. Waitress was very helpful and patient in answering questions, and even asked the kitchen a couple of things. There wasn't a kids menu, but she managed to get a special request side of asparagus for our granddaughter. Spent Easter afternoon having a leisurely and tasty meal. The braised short ribs were our group's favorite (besides the fries!).3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThird time dining at CafeteriaThird time dining at Cafeteria 15L. This has become a "go to" place for dining near the State Capitol. Food is excellent and very creative. We enjoyed Easter brunch during this visit. I ordered one of the specials, bacon eggs benedict on brioche. It was very tasty, with homemade hollandaise. The addition of bacon under the eggs was perfect. Serverd with a side of their homemade potato tots, there was plenty to eat and we were very satisfied. I would recommend 15L to everyone wanting a great meal close to the State Capitol and midtown.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWell done comfort foodFood was good as always. Well done comfort food. The servers are always friendly and attentive.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place before going toGreat place before going to the community center. Valet parking a deal.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe underestimated our lunchWe underestimated our lunch reservation but were accommodated. The waiter was great! We came back for dinner the following night to celebrate and sit in the patio area with 2 additional small groups sitting near by. Bad thing---there was only one waitress to attend to everyone in the patio, the celebration was for me and was the last person to receive their drink. Good thing was that the host quickly remedied the situation once it was brought to his attention.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy our dining experienceAlways enjoy our dining experience at the cafeteria 15L. Friendly staff, excellent food quality and presentation. A little pricy for the types of food offered.,not enough diet conscious choices.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne disapointmentWe eat here whenever we are in the area. We have never been disapointed with the service OR the food. All is wonderful.
But this time we had two children with us and our only disapointment was the cost of the drink for them. I think the waiter should have told us the childrens apple juice was $3.00 each. And one had a refill for another $3.00. So much for healthy children....Just let the customer know.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMthe food is good, missed thethe food is good, missed the lobster rolls(not on menu any longer)started out a little rocky on service, new manager was nice and the birthday girl got a dessert plus another for the table. sitting outdoors is a treat there.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were seated on the patioWe were seated on the patio which was very pleasant. The food was good and the service was fine. All in all, a good experience.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this restaurant!Loved it! This was our first visit -- but it will not be the last! Don't let the name "cafeteria" put you off. It's really quite gourmet, with "real world" prices. Everything was delicious, cooked perfectly, served in a beautiful presentation. Wait staff was extremely attentive without being intrusive or pushy. A very happy dining experience that I would highly recommend to anyone.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Place!We had a group of 10 and had fantastic food and service. It wasn't too loud to carry on a conversation across the table, which is appreciated! We'd eaten there before and everyone was looking forward to it and enjoyed their meals. Personally, I was disappointed in the lack of vegetarian menu choices. The waitress had some good suggestions to alter existing menu items to be vegetarian, which was appreciated and worked out fine for me. But, as a vegetarian, I wouldn't feel inclined to go back there, except for a drink in their nice atmosphere.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
