Great food! and diverse menu. Attentive staff. We dined there before a theater event. Perfect location if attending anything at Community Center Theater, but make sure you have a reservation. Only complaint is the noise level - VERY loud - due to the high ceilings and large open room.
Food and overall experience made up for service gaps. Don’t offer bottomless mimosa if servers don’t return. Since we were clearly celebrating a birthday offering dessert would have been nice. We also had to bring our bill to the bartender to pay. But the food is good.
It was my first time coming here I’ve only heard really great things and cafeteria 15 l didn’t disappoint
Great food, great service. We will definitely be back. Only hassle was parking.
This place never fails to impress. Their unique menu is so delicious. I love the ambience of the restaurant at night.
The music included some very loud hard rock.
Although this is good for the "bar scene", it isn't desirable for early evening diners.
We had very good service provided by a charming server.
Food was good.
I would go back.
This was my first visit to 15 L. I chose the location because I was seeing a show at the Sacramento community center. It was within walking distance from our parking. The service was fantastic. The food was very good. We asked to split a meal and they were very accommodating and split it for us and put it on two different dishes before they even brought it. They had a nice selection of wine and cocktails. The ambience was very suitable. I would dine here again.
Delicious food all the time‼️. Never fails we leave will happy faces and full tummies.
Our server was pleasant and attentive. We always enjoy our meal and time with our family at cafeteria.
I decided to take my girlfriend and our friends because I’ve been so many times and have always loved it. Not the case this last time. We had a reservation for 1245 but we weren’t sat down until about 115. When we were finally seated it was in a dark “overflow” room. Our waitress took forever to come over to us. We all ordered bottomless mimosas which took quite a while to come out. In fact we actually didn’t get them until AFTER our food came out. Speaking of food...we had to send a set of waffles back twice. They were COLD and OVER COOKED! How does that even happen? Our mimosas were only refilled three times. Finally we had enough of the awful service and decided to just leave. I wont be returning to Cafeteria anytime soon.
Great food and service.
Parking can be tough and expensive
Service was super fast for such a busy place, and the food was very good.
The dinner menu is fairly small so I was expecting those few items to be poured over and perfected but it came up lacking. The Western Burger was dry and the French Dip was mediocre in flavor. The drinks though, the drinks were fantastic! I had a Carol Ann and it was delicious! The atmosphere is fun and inviting, the wait staff were helpful and attentive, but the food did not hit the spot.
Our food was good and the service was exceptional. Would highly recommend it and an added bonus was the discount because we were going to the theater afterwards.
Took a colleague for his Bday and we had a very good lunch.
We love this restaurant after the plays, the service is excellent, the food is delicious, what more could you want!
We were late for our reservation due to parking snafus. Yet we were seated as soon as we got there! (We'd asked for the window,but understand that we couldn't have it since we were late)
Our waiter gets 6 stars! He was excellent: helpful, friendly and attentive. My Salmon Salad was great!
The food and service was outstanding
Another outstanding meal at Cafeteria 15L. Arrived a bit early, but were seated right away. OUTSTANDING service! Food was delicious. Made it to the theater on time. There's a reason 15L is our favorite downtown restaurant!
Our server Veronica was very attentive and made sure we were served in plenty of time to enjoy our meal before the play.
The space was beautiful and inviting and that was more or less the end of the positives. The food was poorly executed and too expensive for the effort expended in its preparation. I ordered a grilled chicken Caesar Salad, which is very simple to prepare but requires excellent ingredients to be great. The chicken was well but there was no evidence of it being grilled although it did have a lovely lemon flavor. The lettuce was very white and almost translucent, the croutons were neither soft nor crispy but seemed to have been pulled out of the oven too soon so they were unsatisfying, the cheese while abundant was almost flavorless and the salad was underdressed so I had to request additional dressing. All in all it was not a great experience.
Love the food! Love the kids’s Menu..
Pasta and red sauce. Great place for a date for family for a meetings and to party !
Had a reservation arrived a bit early and waiting list was seated first no apologies were given and we had to wait
Meeting up with a friend from out of town
Great food for a great price!
Burger was good. Ahi appetizer was underseasoned roasted beet salad was also underseasoned
We love going here before the Theatre! Food is awesome (a little pricey) but worth it!
We've been to Cafeteria 15L many times but it was soooo crowded that they really couldn't serve properly. Half our table got coffee, cream was forgotten, silverware wasn't brought. I loved my hamburger (cooked perfectly) but others were disappointed with their meals. May have just been a bad day.
Great food, consistently over many visits. Service is also very good. We will definitely go there again.
The Sunday brunch, atmosphere, and waiter service were all stellar. It was my first visit, and I will definitely be back!
Poor service and the location of our table was next to the lounge and the lights were up and staff was setting up; very distracting and drafty.
Unfortunately the food was not good. Drinks were incorrect, food wasn't cooked enough. The waitress was nice enough, just problems with the kitchen. We usually go as a family 2 times a year before a show@ the convention center. We will find a new place from now on. It is unfortunate due to the convenience of its location for Broadway show.
I went for my 19th birthday with my best friwnds and had a great time, our food came quick and fresh for a large amount of people. I’m glad I made a reseevation though, because it was PACKED.
A very noisy place for a Saturday lunch, and the website didn’t indicate it’s a brunch-only menu until 3:00 on Saturdays and Sundays. The food and the service was average. I was also disappointed to see no amber ales on the beer list!
Food and service were excellent.
Great place to eat before Broadway Series Matinee.
Crowded but very quick
Had an amazing first meal ! Wait staff was on point, felt like family! From a date night to a meal-out-w/ friends, you'll leave feeling energized and at peace. Highly recommend the French toast with maple butter cream. A big hug to the restaurant for an inspiring first meal.
Had a fantastic Salmon Salad and a tasty Iced Tea. Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal.
Made a reservation the day before and was seated right away. The menu had some great options though not as many as the online menu we had viewed earlier. We ordered various soups and salads on the menu, and our food was delicious. The Park Lemon was especially tasty and the service was very good for as busy as they were. The restaurant was decorated for the holidays, everything was clean and it had a really nice atmosphere. There was a nice bar/lounge area available as well.
Second time. Elevated comfort food can be amazing or disappointing. This place does a good if not spectacular job. Creative menu. Decent food. Friendly service. Fancy diner.
