My husband and I always seem to go the same places in Walnut Creek, so we decided to try something new. The food did not disappoint, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. The bar was hopping by the time we left; however, the bar and restaurant are separated, so the noise didn't carry over. Both my lamb and my husband's steak were prepared very nicely.
Very happy with the ambiance, the food, and the service. Would definitely go there again. Enjoyed the dinner and brunch! Patrick was our server on both occasions and was very attentive.
The restaurant is very nice on the inside and outside, and the food was decent but I feel it was slightly over priced for what you got. They have a decent wine list and large bar so maybe happy hour would be more feasible here.
The table we were given was horrid. It was right by the kitchen with a thin curtain flapping right in the face of one of our party every time someone went in and out of the kitchen, which was constant. Plus the sound of the kitchen doors. We went for a special occasion which as a let down.
They did not close the doors between the bar and restaurant area and there was a bar full watching a ball game and we could not hear one another at all.
Very poor ambiance, good food although one of our party was given the wrong order....not even close to what he ordered.
We had reservations well in advance so we should not have had such a bad table.
I took out my team for a Christmas lunch. I had never been here before. The food was excellent! The appetizers are a meal in themselves. Everything was well presented and tasted delicious. I had the french onion soup to start and it was full of onions and topped with bread and cheese. Most of the time you get a watered down broth. My pear salad was wonderful. Someone got the tuna tartar which looked like a piece of artwork. You should try this place.
Excellent choice of plates and ambiance for a business meet and greet lunch. Not too stuffy or to casual...nice place.
1515 is my go to place - brunch, lunch, happy hour.
Always fun and overall enjoyable👍
Very disappointing, barren tables, ambiance lacking. Made reservations telling them it was my wife's birthday and no acknowledgement whatsoever. Also on their menu they list prime rib but what they don't state is that they reheat on grill. That is a sin!!! So many better places in vicinity, save your money.
This place has good, solid food, with decent portions at a fair price. The medium-rare lamb chops were cooked medium-well, though. Service is professional, although it can be difficult to get the waiters' attention at times. The atmosphere can get pretty noisy, especially if there's a game playing at the bar.
We were seated at a table next to the kitchen. Noisy and hectic.
Served mussels that were in an oily, spicy broth. Spice was not mentioned on the menu.
Had to search for a server to get a refill of water. Server was disinterested and harried. Won't return.
Our dinners were very good with unique spices. The wait staff was helpful and attentive.
Choices for all courses offered good spectrum. Wine selection was creative and reasonably prices.
The Sea Bass was delicious!
The food is consistently of high quality. Love the crab stack.
Food was surprisingly good! Not expected on a main street in Walnut Creek. Service (Theresa) was excellent. Food was some of the best in a very long time. WE WILL GO BACK (AND SOON!)
Starters and desserts were excellent but my entree was extremely disappointing. I ordered prime rib and what arrived was unlike any I've ever had. I expected a pinkish-red cut of meat; instead it was covered with a dark coating and was pretty tough and tasted of tenderizer. My expectation of creamy scalloped potatoes turned out to be a dry square with an off taste. I wanted to send back my entree but my dining companions were satisfied with theirs, even the one who also ordered prime rib but the end cut so it would be cooked through so I didn't want to make a fuss. I did bring home the left over beef and my husband made an excellent stir fry with it along with some Chinese bitter melon flavored with Chinese oyster sauce.
