We came in for an office Christmas lunch. We know the sous chef and love the food and his specials. Our reservation was at the end of lunch and they were very gracious and did not rush our meal.

Cafeteria 15L was exceptional. From the moment we used the valet service for parking to leaving after a great meal expectations were exceeded. The menu was full of quality choices and all our selections were full of taste and the presentation of the food was impressive. Our service from Amanda who was pleasant and very attentive was fantastic. She even noticed one of the filets not cooked to perfection and without us asking advised she would request another one immediately. It was brought back within a few minutes and enjoyed. Great Sacramento restaurant that won't disappoint.

My group of 6 was running late for a reservation for Saturday brunch. Called to let the restaurant know and they saved our table for us even though we were actually 10 minutes past the cancellation deadline. We sincerely appreciated this great customer service. We drove from Stockton for our annual club Christmas luncheon and would have been so disappointed if we had lost our table. The food and service was great and our special outing turned out perfectly!! Thanks to all the staff at Cafeteria 15L for a wonderful dining experience.

We made reservation for a party of 10 and was seated exactly at our reservation time. We were where at 2pm on Sunday and the place was popping. The brunch menu was great and their mock-tails were delicious. The only issue we had was with the under cooked chicken for the chicken and waffle. We sent it back and they gave my husband a new one. They ended up comping it so no biggie. The staff was quick.

Love the ambiance. Good was good. I had the French toast with a side of bacon. The cuts of bacon were thick. However, the bottomless mimosas were not worth the $15. They're watered down and flat.

I had the roasted chicken with the sides from the pork chop meal. Only thing I didn't like was the gravy which didn't seem to be seasoned or have any taste. Overall the food was great. Love that there are options and they had no problem doing substitutes. I had a margarita, rose by another name I believe. So good! I would come again as this was my first time.

We have been to Cafeteria 15 L a number of times before and had a good experience. I can only give it a "meh" this time around. Service was good but not fabulous even though they were really slow on the Sunday night that we went. Food was disappointing...just "OK". I ordered a Thai salad that in the menu was described to be on red cabbage but no red cabbage to be found when served. Flavor was a little bland, especially the beef that topped the salad. For Thai season very disappointing.
The most disappointing thing was the bill for $120 after tip for our family of 5 even though we didn't order any alcohol, apps or dessert. I would have been happy to pay that price for a great meal and service but not when I leave unsatisfied.

We like having brunch here...I'm wondering if they are focusing more of their efforts on their bar business. Based on our dinner, we won't go back for dinner again...too many other great restaurants in town to enjoy. Will probably try again for brunch sometime.

Recently the food has gone down hill but I was pleased to see that they stepped up their game and it is back to what it once was. The only real issue I had was being seated next to the bar. Their bar mats could use a good cleaning. It was stinky in that area. And bad smells don’t go hand in hand with enjoying food.

Sweet staff loved the ambiance. I did use to make a special request which might have been why the hostess put us in a quiet corner booth that was nice but a little below expectations. Overall would definitely eat here again but was a little let down that I couldn’t treat my wife to something more special.

Gator tots were super salty. Steak was tough on the steak salad. Didn’t care for the Asian dressing on it either, which saturated the spaghetti noodles and the lettuce.

I recommended Cafeteria 15L to business associates from out of town based on feedback from friends who had gone there for lunch. There were six of us at the table. These associates were very impressed with the food and the casual ambiance. They complimented me on my restaurant selection. I’m sure we’ll all be back.
