Great for a group. One comment was "We could hear each other talk." Everyone got what exactly what they wanted and their diets required. If you have to plan for a group lunch or dinner, keep put this restaurant on your list to consider. And just for the two of you, it's a good choice as well.

Our server was fabulous with food choices & recommendations. We ate outside on the patio. The lights kept flickering, turning on and off. Not sure what that was about, but it was a bit distracting.

Our group had a nice evening at Cafeteria 15L. The service was just perfect - not hovering, not MIA, just there when we needed her. The food was delivered pretty quickly, even though the restaurant seemed somewhat full. We enjoyed and recommend the beet salad, wedge salad and shrimp haystacks. A good value was a burger and upgrading the salad to a 1/2 size wedge.

The only bummer, and certainly not the restaurant’s fault, was the very pricey parking ticket we got for parking in the confusingly marked parking spot/loading zone out front. Beware!

15L offered a great transition between outdooor, indoor and "at the bar" dining. The Happy Hour crowd was active but not loud and the bartender and follow on waitress made great suggestions.

Best breakfast food around town. Endless mimosas are good price but very watered down with not a good flavor too them. Also, they were warm mimosas and not ice cold.

It was a lovely day so we asked to be seated outdoors. While it was a little quieter out there and the ambiance was nice, we kind of got ignored. We sat for quite a long time before our order was taken and then did not get drinks refreshed when needed. Food was great, server was friendly, but very busy and did not make it back to us in a timely manner.

I always enjoy the food and service at Cafeteria 15L. And my last visit was no exception. While it is very noisy at busy times, it is still tolerable. Food portions are large and prices are reasonable. Have always enjoyed whatever I have ordered.

Awesome food- fast service- we only had 45 min before our play- that was no problem except for the fact we were having such a nice time we would rather have stayed at the restaurant! Megan our server was delightful! Loved the Thai steak salad.

We made reservation but got seated next to the kitchen where everyone was coming in and out around our table. This was a birthday dinner but felt very rushed and we did not felt relaxed. Asked to be moved to another table but it was too busy or for lack of effort, not sure. Later, I noticed outside seating was available, no one suggested it
Food was great, location good.

My first time at Cafeteria 15L. Enjoyed our before theater dinner. The salmon bisque soup of the day was outstanding. The poke was too mild for me; however, it was tasty. Waitress was lovely, helpful. The food came quickly which, for our plans to go to the theater, was just fine. Next time I'll try the desserts.

My sister and I had the guacamole burger (not sure of its name on the menu) with sweet potato fries. We both loved our choice and will definitely go to Cafeteria 15L again.

Group of 8 business associates selected Cafeteria 15L based on recommendations from coworkers. Menu provided something for everyone. Place was hopping and had a great vibe, noises but you could have a conversation easily. Service was very good, meals delivered at same time and waitress was attentive. Everyone was pleased with their selection. Braised short ribs were the hit, burgers and salads were good- not great, but all agreed we will return.

This restaurant really caters to the theatre crowd. We ordered and were served promptly on a very busy Prom night. Food arrived hot and prepared exactly as we requested it. We could linger over our dinner and still make the show in plenty of time. My husband had the roasted chicken and I had two appetizers (brussel sprouts and hamburger sliders). The Brussel Sprouts were done to perfection and beautifully flavored.

This is the second time I have visited this restaurant the first time the food was amazing but service was bad, and this time the service was amazing but the food was just terrible which is unfortunate. Debating on if I will return for a 3rd time just to see if 3rd times a charm and seeing if I get the best things from both visits in one trip.

They show a happy hour until 7 O'clock at night... what they don't say is you have to be at the actual bar to get the happy hour. We had a table of 8 that we intentionally picked Cafeteria 15L because they had a late happy hour. Waitress was not anything to impress. Just disappointing! Will not go back.

Love that there was not a long wait at all to receive our food for a table of six and the tater tots where delicious. Highly recommend. However, because there was not a long wait to drive our food the meals where not hot, they warm. Meaning it probably was already made and not made fresh.

This was our second visit. The food is sooo yummy. Especially the mashed potatoes and gravy. The noise level was high but that just shows the popularity of the restaurant. They have an outdoor patio which would be enjoyable during nice weather. There is paid parking right next to the restaurant. Definitely will go again!
