Pretty location, great atmosphere. The server recommended the Thai steak salad as house favorite. I was not impressed with the food: steak was burned (not well done as I ordered), the salad was soaked in dressing that overpowered the different ingredients. I was hoping for better food for the buck I paid.
The food has really gone downhill in recent years. I've kept coming in the hopes it was a fluke, and I've ordered a variety of things, but it's not. Service is still great.
Service was excellent as was the food. One of our favorite places.
Brunch date with the fiancé. It was awesome! The food came out super quick and my bottomless mimosa was never empty!
My husband and I went for Sunday brunch and were seated promptly with our reservation. We both enjoyed our meals and the bottomless mimosas were definitely kept on on!
Found egg shell in food but they took it off the ticket .
Service was friendly and prompt. The food arrived in less than 5 minutes.
Group of ten for a birthday celebration. Wonderful food and service,
Yummy food, fun atmosphere - great for a bite before going to something at the community theater.
Service was next level! The tall chef with the tattoos went out of his way to talk to our table and recommend an appetizer. Much appreciated.
This place is great! Relaxed fun atmosphere with amazing food. The shoestring fries are to die for.
It was just amazing the staff and everything just was great
Cafeteria 15 L is a great little spot, with good food. It had been awhile since I had been, but it didn’t disappoint. Food was good, ambience great, service was just a little slow.
Valentine’s Day. Service was great.
The food and drinks were not as good as in the past. I miss the Barbie bubbles cocktail!
Good American fare. Not fancy or assuming. Reasonable time re service etc. Prices are slightly above average. Great for lunch.
We were greeted by the waitress as soon as we were seated. She took her order and within 15 minutes the whole table was covered. We went for the happy hour and had wonderful dining experience! Awesome Happy Hour menu and such beautiful decor. We will DEFINITELY be back!
We had a party of 3; 2 of our party ordered the daily special. About 10 minutes later, we were informed that they were out of the special and those two would need to order a different dish. Another 5 minutes later, the manager comes back to inform one of these two that they second dish they ordered was also not available. We ordered 3 appetizers, 2 came out before main entrees. The one dish that was originally ordered and did not have to be changed was brought out before the third appetizer and about 10 minutes before the other two entrees were brought to the table. Disappointed with the quality of the dishes as well; over salted and not hot.
Our service was the best, most attentive and responsive service we've experienced in a lonnng time. (And that's saying a lot).
If you want brunch, make a reservation! I've been several times and the food is always great, the service quick and attentive throughout the meal. Parking is the biggest challenge and you'll want to arrive well before your reservation if you're looking for any street parking. The lot behind the restaurant was also full when we went, so we ended up parking in the garage across the street. Great food and service, make a reservation or you'll wait a LONG time.
I made reservations in advance for a party of 6. We were seated right on time. Great Place for a get together.
The food was good but the service was horrible. We were early for our reservation so we ordered an appetizer at the bar while waiting for our table. When the food came out, they didn't give us plates, utensils, or napkins. They didn't give a device to let us know when our table was ready but asked us to check back in when it's closer to our reservation (I booked a reservation via Open Table so I received a text thank goodness). When I walked to the hostess to let her know I got the text, she said, "Right this way" and let me go first. When I turned around to tell her my friend was at the bar and we still had our appetizer, she had walked back to the hostess table and neglected to tell me. Instead, she was helping patrons of the surprise party. When I asked her if she was supposed to seat me, she said again, "Right this way" and walked several steps ahead of me. I kept saying, "Excuse me" several times to get her attention and ask about whether we should stop at the bar and get my friend. She said that I would have to close my tab at the bar but she would rather show me to the table first and then I could go get my friend. Granted this was a Saturday night but it doesn't excuse the lack of professionalism.
We had a fantastic time! Customer service was outstanding!
Reservations were made for 1:00pm. We were finally sat by 1:30pm and first greeted by our server at 1:40pm. Food and service was good once we were finally sat, but our experience was ruined by waiting 40 minutes with a reservation. I expect minimal wait times with a reservation.
Great Sac midtown experience! Food and environment are very good. Great location; close to theaters. Highly recommended.
The food was delicious. We started with a mushroom bisque which had an amazing flavor. It was followed by meatloaf wrapped in bacon, mashed potatoes with gravy and fresh green bean. Everything was seasoned perfectly and we enjoyed every bite. For dessert we enjoyed skillet s'mores. What a fun idea, just like camping with a twist. A cute touch was the fact that the chairs were mismatched. Our server was friendly and offed great suggestions when asked. We highly recommend The Cafeteria15L.
Cafeteria 15L is our go-to place for dinner before Broadway Sacramento shows. Food and see are always outstanding.
The food was good and the wait staff was very attentive. Great comfort food with a nice selection.
We had a great meal before the theater. The food was great and the service was excellent.
Great service and comfortable atmosphere: ... our favorite pre-theater dinner restaurant!
As always a pleasure to be Cafeteria 15L which was its usual wonderfulness.
Server was great.
Great after theater dinner in walking distance with good food and drinks!!!!!
It was a great experience! Our server was amazing. She was sweet and very attentive. My friends had bottomless mimosas and she was so good at refilling them the second their glasses were emptied. The food came fast and everything was delicious! We came for my birthday and I’m really glad we did because everything went so smoothly. Thank you Cafeteria 15L!
Great service and great food!! We really like this place.
Despite delicious food, our first trip to Cafeteria 15L was a dud. We arrived a few minutes after it reservation time. We were not greeted when we walked in. Upon checking in with the hostess, who acted like it was an inconvenience to speak with us, we were informed that we would probably be looking at a 25-30 minute “or more” wait. There were roughly 12-15 people with reservation times before ours that had not been seated yet. How does that happen? Isn’t the purpose of reservations to skip the wait? We scanned the packed bar for place to sit and when we could find one we headed on our way out. We had budgeted 1.5 hours before our theater show, which was just around the corner, but we would not make the show if we waited. Asking the hostess one more time if she could squeeze in our party of two somewhere, were were sat at a long table with two other couples. While the seating arrangement worked — we had a place to eat — it was less than ideal for our all-too-infrequent date night. The food service was solid and the food was very good. Unfortunately though, the initial experience with the reservation situation and hostess’s sour disposition left us disappointed.
Have been to this restaurant a couple of times now and have not been disappointed!! It's well worth another trip back just to have their Brussel's Sprouts!!!! AWESOME!
Happy hour was good with solid food and drinks, but nothing to write home about.
The service was lacking and our food was barely warm when it came out. We’ve been before and had great experiences but won’t be back.
We had a party of 12 and had a great experience. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the downtown Sacramento area.
