Great meal and ambiance. Service was outstanding and our table was right next to the window. Both of us had salads that were well made and plentiful. Will go back again.

We usually have a good time here but this past saturday our waitress was rude, and we had to ask another waiter for our mimosas. Not worth the money we spent.

Nice place to catch brunch and enjoy a bottomless mimosa on a Sunday mid day, fast service food is served fast and hot, I recommend and will be coming back for many more Sundays to come

Went for brunch and there were several large parties (bridal/baby showers, etc.) and we still got our food in record time. Good food and great vibe!

Very inattentive. Food was dropped off and we were never checked on again. Ended up staying longer than expected and having to wave down a waiter to get our check

Sisters weekend in Sacramento. My sisters and I decided to have brunch at Cafeteria 15L. I enjoyed the decor to the food and great service, that we decided to give it another round since our first experience was so good. I ordered the same thing I had on Saturday morning. I ordered malt waffles and tots but no mimosa that day. Everything was great and that is my go to place when I visit Sacramento again.

I used to dine at Cafeteria regularly—despite the then snippy wait staff and semi-incompetent management. The staff seems to have improved, but the food quality has decreased

A wonderful find near the Hyatt Regency, thoroughly enjoyed everything about Cafeteria. Our server Camille was attentive and helpful, her advice/recommendations spot on. The meatloaf and friend chicken/waffles were perfection. Half price wine bottles on Monday was a nice surprise. Mint chip mud pie made it back intact to the hotel! Definitely will be back when next in the area, thank you!

The food was great - hamburger, quinoa/asparagus salad and the spinach/salmon salad. My only complaint is that bread was not served with the salad. I had to buy some sour dough toast and you almost could have broken a tooth because the bread was so hard.

Our server was very attentive, friendly, and timely. Our brunch party of 7 had a reservation, and our table was more than enough space for all of us. The entrees arrived awkwardly fast, but our app was forgotten, arriving after a reminder and after the entrees, so that was odd, but it definitely did not have an overall negative impact on our experience.

One our favorite dining place prior to attending the Music Circus or Community Center Performances. Just have to remember to make reservations since it is very popular... The Shrimps & Haystack Fries are my must have...

I’ve eaten lunch with friends three times now at Cafeteria 15L, and I’ve enjoyed each experience. The food is excellent and comes to the table reasonably quickly. The service has been responsive, even if the server is attending to a large party as well as our table.

Has gone downhill. The chicken was dry. The food cane out before the drinks and when we finally received our drinks they were not worth the cost. The alcohol content was barely noticeable (we each ordered one drink from their cocktail menu). Now I specifically mention this because in the past they were known for their bar and we just took a Bartending class which made this experience even more disappointing now that we know more.

While the food was a little more to be desired, it came very fast and our waiter was attentive. My southern benedict; the sausage was a tad burnt and my biscuit was tough but it was fine. I think I’ll stick to the sweet brunches from now on though.

We enjoyed ourselves this past Saturday during brunch. We all purchased the bottomless mimosas and our server Zach did a great job refilling our waters, mimosas, and checking in to see if we needed anything. We will be back again!

Promptly seated at 11am (reservation time). However, after 20 minutes of waiting for someone to take our drink order, my fiancé had to ask the front desk staff who/where our waiter/waitress was. Shortly after, our waitress came to take our drink order and since we waited so long, we provided our food order. Also, my fiancé had the bottomless mimosa and it took awhile to receive the drink and refills.

Usually this restaurant has great service, but maybe this time they were short staffed and that caused the delay.

Weekend Brunch at 15L was super. We were in town visiting. We stayed at Embassy Suites which has their own breakfast. But after experiencing breakfast combat style we searched out 15L using Trip Advisor. They were spot on. The place is great, big, clean and well decorated. The hostesses were very accommodating. The Wait staff were excellent and the food was outstanding. I had a skillet breakfast which was first rate. All the veggies were super fresh. II also had a side of bacon which was delicious. Thick and smoky and perfectly cooked. My girlfriend had poached eggs which were perfectly cooked as she ask for them. The broasted potatoes are unique and delicious (I COULD HAVE JUST EATEN THOSE FOR BREAKFAST). We split an order of housemate granola with yogurt which was also delicious. Super place. We will skip the free breakfasts in the future and go to 15L.
