While there’s nothing out of the ordinary on the menu, the food is tasty and the portions larger than at some other Sac restaurants that serve similar fare.

The noise level is not acceptable. We were seated very close to the door and had to wear our coats all evening. There was no toilet paper in the restroom even thought it was still quite early in the evening (around 7:30 PM). The location is very convenient, but the next time we attend the symphony we may try a different restaurant.

I went with my friends for weekend brunch, The bottomless mimosas were great! My drink continued to be filled throughout my meal with very friendly staff. We were amazed at hope quickly the food came out after we ordered. The food was delicious and filling. We will definitely be returning and bringing more friends.

This was a date night for my wife and me. She generally doesn’t like the downtown restaurant scene, since there’s usually parking hassles and a long wait to be seated. The valet parking took care of the first issue and we were immediately seated, which resolved the second. Our server gave us great advice on what to order, though she seemed stretched thin. She would disappear for long periods of time but the other staff helped her out.

I went for Dine Downtown. The food was awesome. The drinks were awesome. My only complaint was that the entrees came out while we were still eating our appetizers, our appetizers came like a minute after we were given our cocktail, so it felt a little rushed.

We went to Cafeteria 15L for Restaurant Week and it did not disappoint. The service was friendly and timely, all 3 courses were delicious, with great portion sizes, and the ambiance was intimate and relaxing. We loved it and definitely recommend it to others. Cheers!

I went on line and found that CAFETERIA 15L in Sacramento was a good option for Sunday brunch, so I made a reservation through Open Table. We were NOT disappointed! Excellent comfort food for breakfast/brunch, reasonably priced, excellent service, and fun atmosphere. The only negatives were difficult parking (even on a Sunday!), and when I tried to make a reservation on Open Table, the only time we could get for a table for 2 was 9 or 9:30. So I made a 9:30 reservation, but when we got there, there were plenty of tables—as there were at 10 and 10:30. If I'd know that, we would have arrived at 10 or 10:30. But no matter. We had a great time and will definitely go back.

The hostess who was working while I was there was great! Helped me set up a surprise for my now girlfriend. It was a great experience! I’ll definitely recommend it to friends and will dine here again.

Great place, food was great, service was great, however, the wine list is full of grievous errors that are inexcusable. Newton Cabernet Sauvignon list from Napa, but they served the Sonoma version. Similar with most of the list, not very honest.
