I have been to the restaurant before it was great. This time not so good. We were late for out reservation. The restaurant was closing for a couple of hours..we never received our drink order and felt like we were being pushed out the door...

Cafeteria 15L is a fun place to eat. We took my mother-in-law to Sunday brunch for her birthday. Service was great and the choices were extensive. We all enjoyed ourselves. Will definitely go back!

The service was very good considering the crowd. Brunch before the Nutcracker performance, so the restaurant was very busy.

Me and my friends meet here on Sundays about twice a week and I decided to try something new, I ordered the chicken fried steak for breakfast and it got to me in 5 or so minutes, and it was amazing! Couldn’t have asked for a better way to start my morning!

The mac & cheese was great. The waffle breakfast sandwich was average, but the accompanying smashed potatoes that came with it were OUTSTANDING -- yum! The truffle tater tots were OK; I personally didn't think there was enough truffle to call them truffle tots. The accompanying rosemary ketchup was also a delight.

Great ambiance. There's outside patio seating that would be great during proper seasons. Nice portion of food on some dishes. I had shrimp scampi with minium shrimp. I did not have leftovers which is unusual for me. Parking is a pain but they will valet for min $5. Overall pretty nice.

Had a family reunion brunch. Our table was ready when we arrived. The food came out quickly after we had ordered and was hot and tasty. Service could have been a little more attentive with drink refills. But overall we'll definitely be back.

I never have a bad meal at Cafeteria 15 L. I especially love the fact that you can get tater tots instead of breakfast potatoes if you want. If you're going to eat carbs, they may as well be tots!

Food and service was great but hostess needs additional customer service training. She was rude and dismissive. No need to be this way. Another host came to help and he was much more friendly and communicated the same policy. It’s all how you say it not what you say.

This is a young people's place but I and my friend, two senior citizens, were treated very well (which does not always happen in young people places) and enjoyed the food. It is the MOST convenient restaurant to the community theatre (concert venue). We'll go back..

I came here with a group of girlfriends for a bachelorette party weekend. We stopped here for brunch and really enjoyed it. It is a really fun atmosphere and the staff was really nice. Not to mention the bloody mary and breakfast food was delicious! I would definitely come back again.

Very nice place for breakfast. The potatoes with our eggs benedict were absolutely delicious. We enjoyed our meal and our time there. Huge place, but we were in the main part of the restaurant and were happy with our table. Be warned the plates are copious and you really need to bring an appetite.
Don't forget to make reservations.

Absolutely the best thing about dining at 15 L is the freshness of the food. Both my guest and I had excellent dinners accompanied with a delicious specialty cocktail. It is a little loud in the restaurant, but that doesn't matter much because the dining is so good and the ambience is friendly.

We had a group of 12 on a Friday night and our server was so attentive. I don't remember her name, but the restaurant was packed and she still came around often enough to refill our drinks and answer any questions we had. Overall the ambiance and food was great! Just what I expected for a Friday night. Will be back again!

The Salmon Salad was delicious and we both would order it again. The macaroni and cheese was very good but we called it butter and macaroni because we could taste more butter than cheese. It was served very hot which was really nice. Our waiter may have forgotten that we were going to the theater as we waited a little too long for our check. We have eaten there many times and overall like the food quite well and the service is typically very good.

Four of us enjoyed dinner before seeing the play "Beautiful" on a Wednesday night. The place was very busy and very noisy, however the vibe was friendly and fun. Limited selections for Vegtarians, which my husband I are. We both ordered the French onion soup and a salad and we shared an order of their Truffle Oil Tater Tots which were excellent. Service was good and staff were pleasantly friendly.
