Food and atmosphere is far
Food and atmosphere is far superior than what you would expect from a restaurant located in a strip mall. Service is always fast and friendly. Great kids menu. Highly recommend!

Excellent, as always
My sweetheart and I have become frequent repeat guests at 15 Walnut. We know enough wait staffers now to have friendly discussions, and the food is consistently very good. I tried the brisket on this visit, just as a departure from my usual favorites -- short ribs or margherita pizza. The brisket was good, but I'm afraid that since it was the best meal my mother ever prepared, this version came up a little short of that. It was still good, but I'll never order apple crisp anywhere for the same reason. Nothing will ever compare to mom's brisket and apple crisp. My sweetheart had the scallops with shrimp risotto, which was excellent. I always recomment 15 Walnut highly. Warm atmosphere, wonderful waiters, fine food.

We went there because they have $1 oysters on Mondays and they did not disappoint! Not everyone got oysters, but everyone was content with whatever they got!

Love this place
We love 15 Walnut, especially the choose your own antipasto boards. The cheeses and options are always great. We go there for special occasions but its also family friendly. The day boat scallops are outstanding.

Friends and family
Tried 15 Walnut for the first time for a birthday dinner accompanied by our daughter and her husband, and a houseguest. We were pleased to see other friends from Beverly when we came in, and later another couple from our church. That, together with the open feeling, attractive décor, and friendliness of the staff, gave 15 Walnut a very pleasant neighborhood "gathering spot" feel. The menu had many items of interest; all of our choices were nicely prepared and attractively presented.
Our server, Debbie, was a delight: knowledgeable, sociable and engaged, without being intrusive.
The bar also looks like a comfortable dining spot; thankfully, the TVs don't dominate either area.
Altogether a very pleasant evening, and sure to be repeated!

I brought my friend here for
I brought my friend here for her birthday. I love the ambience. It's cozy and inviting; I could see myself stopping by to sit at the bar for a drink after work--the Moscow Mule was perfect, as were the Pomegranate Mojitos--having dinner with friends, or meeting a date here. Our server was friendly & informative. The food...well, I might have dreams about the Dijon cream sauce on the perfectly cooked pork tenderloin (my friend's dinner) and I know I'll *have* to go back for the Day Boat Scallops. Also, Try the local cheese plate. Just do it. I live and work on the South Shore but I would absolutely go out of my way to return here. Fortunately my friend & her husband live closeby so I'll be in the area frequently enough to get my fix.

Great, as always. Bring back
Great, as always. Bring back the sushi--15 Walnut Roll, especially!!!

Hit the Mark and then some
Delicious food, fresh ingredients, excellent atmosphere. The service was attentive and top notch. Try the calamari as a starter. It was simply outstanding.

Delicious Father's Day Dinner
We were a group of 5 on Father's Day evening. The Service was outstanding and the food was great. My 88 year old father has difficulty understanding the waitstaff anywhere we go. Our waitress noticed that and turned toward him and moved a little closer and spoke a bit louder for him to hear. That is a rarity. Dad understood and we were all appreciative. She was comfortably attentive, not too often and not too little.
They have a nice selection of microbrew beers. The Whales Tail Ale is excellent. We ordered 2 pizzas, a salad and two fish dishes. All were delicious. Since it was a Sunday night, it wasn't noisy, so we could have an easy conversation.
I'll definitely return and you should go there too.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Got a GC here wasn't sure if we would like it. Didn't know what to expect cause its in a strip mall but was immediately impressed as soon as we walked in. We were greeted right away by staff, the kitchen is open so you can see what's happening. The bar is good size and appears to be very comfortable for eating and conversation (we were at a table which was very nice also ) waitstaff was great and the food was very good and nice sized ,portions. All 4 of us were pleasantly surprised and will be returning.

15 Walnut is truly a gem.
15 Walnut is truly a gem. The menu is fun, the food is wonderful, and the service warm, gracious and efficient. The bread and oil brought out at the beginning is terrific. Such a fine beginning. We enjoy everything--but last time the steak tips with side of spinach and sweet potato fries was fabulous. We do miss terribly the sushi options, particularly the 15 Walnut roll. Bring it back!!!

Went there on a whim with my friend, took the last reservation of the night at 9:30 pm on a Friday. It is in a strip mall area which I found to be awkward but for it being almost 10:00 pm on a Friday the place wasn't crowded at all. The bar had more people in it than the actual tables. The food was great, me and my friend split the buffalo chicken wings appetizer and fries and they were exceptional.
It is a good place to go somewhere for a quick bite to eat but I wouldn't go there on a date or anything like that. The next time I would go there would be if it was the closest place around.

Excellent presentation of food; service was attentive and excellent...food was delicious. Busy but not noisy. Honored reservations.
I recommend it.

Pizzas and Ice Cream
Burgers are excellent according to my wife. However she would like to see half sizes offered as at Opus in Salem. I am a vegetarian and would like to see more options with protein sources like quinoa etc. or arancinis or gnocchis. The farm Board is beautifully presented but needs more protein. The homemade ice cream and pizzas are excellent.

Our new favorite place
we have been here a few times now and just love it.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best meal we've had out in a long time. My wife and I are pretty good cooks and sometimes we walk away from a restaurant experience thinking we could have done it better ourselves in our own kitchen.
Our party of 4 was very impressed by the creative menu and pairings of foods, flavors and textures.
We ordered an 'anti-pasta board (?). The fried chickpeas were out of this world....bruelled figs...what a great idea!! (Also included red and orange beets, very thin toasted bread and salami. Delicious!!

This is a great place to go for good food and pleasant atmosphere. Rarely disappointed.

15 Walnut continues to deliver
We had another great meal at 15 Walnut on 8-26-13. The menu has changed a bit and the old tapas a la carte has gone. However the offerings are still varied and locally sourced whenever possible. We had two salads: caesar and wedge, both delightful. We shared the crab cakes and a margarita pizza. It was more than enough for us. The service was wonderful, and we were able to have the slow and quiet meal that we requested when we came in. Because we arrived at 6:30 with an open table reservation, we had a booth and the restaurant was quiet. By 7:30, the joint was jumping as the commuters came home and the college kids came in for "last suppers" with their families.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
15 walnut has never disappointed us. Food and staff are top notch. We had a friend from Europe here for business and decided to bring him here for dinner last minute. Reservations were thankfully available for a Friday night. He is used to very high end restaurants worldwide and he was very happy with the whole experience. He loved that the food was high end quality but that as we feel, atmosphere makes you relax and allows you to enjoyed each others company. Continued kudos!

Good time was had by all
Easy to find, plenty of parking, no wait with our reservation, food was very good for our brunch with group of six, service was excellent and they did not rush us (we stayed there for well over an hour). I liked how they reminded me on email of our reservation confirmation twice before our dining date. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

15 Walnut rocks!
My friend and I enjoyed a tapas plate, and grilled chicken Caesar salads! Our waitress was extremely nice and accommodating! Everything was delicious! It was not our first visit and definitely won't be our last!

Excellent service. I had the haddock burrito and my friend had the salmonBLT She oohed and ahhed over her sandwich and said it was the best she had eaten. And I thoroughly enjoed the burrito. Well presented with a small salad and very good.

Overall we had a great time
Overall we had a great time and experience. Waitress was awesome. This restaurant was pretty expensive for a place located in a strip mall. Entrees range from $20-28 and not for anything extravagant. (chicken, haddock....) Menu is pretty limited. Food was great but not big portions. Is a good place for a few couples to go out. Not loud. Nice bar.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
From making the reservation(via opentable) to leaving after our meal, a fantastic experience. Staff was attentive but not obtrusive(hard balance to maintain) well done.
Noise level was good, lively but not overpowering able to carry a conversation.
The food exceeded our expectations, excellent presentation, value for price.
Will definitely return and recommend to friends.

The steak with porcini mushrooms
The steak with porcini mushrooms was excellent as well as the striped bass with fingerling potatoes, chorizo, and kale in saffron sauce. The appetizer, scallops with foie gras, was very good. The scallops were large and fresh. They didn't have the wine we ordered from the wine list, but the substitute our server suggested was quite good. The dessert, banana pudding, did not disappoint. As for our server, she was friendly and attentive. I love that we sat outdoors and that it's next door to Warwick Theater, so after dinner my husband and I just walked over to see a movie. Don't be dissuaded by negative reviews as you can't please everyone. We're local residents, so we'll definitely be back. I highly recommend Palmers. A neighborhood gem!

Very good spot
Found this OT as it was near a place we had to visit. Happily surprised to find out it is owned by the same company that also runs Alchemy and Lat43. Great bar - large, well stocked, fun place to have a drink and talk with friends. Food was good. On Friday night service was just OK. Literally had to wave my arms to order a 2nd round of drinks from the bartender....our empty glasses at the edge of the bar did not get their attention.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was excellent. The sides were very, very good. The entrees were good if overpriced. The drinks were excellent, the appetizers seemed to be very popular, and the desserts were out of this world. It wasn't too formal and there were lots of kids. I think the best use of this place is meeting friends after work for appetizers and drinks and watching the game at the very nice bar. Happy place. I would definitely return.

We found out about 15Walnut
We found out about 15Walnut about 4 years ago when a friend gave us a gift certificate, and it quickly became our favorite place. We haven't had a bad meal there yet, the staff is always very friendly and take good care of you. Atmosphere is also very nice with comfortable seating and it's décor is well thought out. Then there's the food, what can I say it's awesome! Everything is from local fishing boats & farms so it's very fresh, and the chefs really know what they're doing, not only is everything delicious, but the presentation boarders on gourmet. We recommend 15 Walnut to all of our friends that haven't tried it, and take out of town relatives there often.

15 Walnut - give it a try
We will definitely go back to 15 Walnut. Our server Elliot was great. Answered all of our questions and made great recommendations. The food was delicious, but a little pricey. The salads were filled with too many greens which took away from the other ingredients. The sushi was the freshest we have had in a long time. Delicious! They were out of our favorite wine, but had a reasonable alternative. We will go back
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I like 15 Walnut and we go again, but not on the nights they have a band. Why do bands think dinners want to do nothing but listen to them. It is too small a place to have a rock group overwhelming everything else.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed by all
Once again we had a great night. We have brought several different people to 15 walnut. This week it was our foodie friends and they asked us to recommend a place. We chose 15 walnut but they were concerned because of a few yelp reviews. We got them to agree to try it and when the six of us had finished dinner the first words out their mouths were , "Those people on yelp couldn't have been talking about this place."
So again, 15 walnut has proven that they do not disappoint.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pure and delicious.
We love this place. The food is free of unwanted ingredients and filled with flavor. I especially enjoyed the ample portioned house salad. The menu changes with the seasons and I tried the stuffed squash,.. it did not disappoint. We will be back for sure.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM

Good food in wenham
We had a very good meal at 15 Walnut--not outstanding like our last meal here,but very good. The squash bisque was excellent though s little sweet fid my taste; wonderful silky texture. Vegetarian chili was a hearty, flavorful entree. The burger was perfectly cooked but I confess to missing the Ipswich grainy mustard,and my sweet potato mash was lukewarm. Wine selection is good but overpriced.

Great Dining Experience
We love the Serinitee chain. 15 Walnut is one of favorites for consistently great food with innovative touches. They keep the restaurant experience fresh and by so doing entice you back. Last night we benefited from our Serenitee loyalty points with a free entree - sirloin tips with two sides - tender. We also had the roasted beets which were delicious along with polenta and mushroom goulash. We had two special fall martinis which were creative and finished with a free dessert.
The cooks are talented. Lindsey is just about as friendly and attentive server as you are likely to find anywhere.
