Great service and a generous portion of a giant salad. The steak was excellent quality but a little bit tough. The Sunday was presented attractively, but they used Hershey’s syrup and would’ve expected a more gourmet chocolate. The hot fudge was not hot.

Had high hopes for a nice patio dining experience, but alas, the patio at Cafeteria 15L lacks warmth of any kind. Some potted plants would brighten it up. And please put some comfortable chairs on the patio - the steel chairs are horribly uncomfortable. We did Happy Hour and on the plus side, it's from 4-7 p.m. We ordered the shrimp stack and whoever thought shoestring potatoes go with shrimp, was wrong. A real miss on this one. We also ordered the artichoke dip which was great, but it came with tortilla chips (really?). Again, very strange pairing. Maybe we ordered the wrong food items. On the plus side, the blood orange martini was fabulous. We not return until the HH menu is tweeked.

Let’s start with the pros. Two of us had the special salmon dinner and it was outstanding, especially bed of salad it rested on. Server was efficient and very polite. Now cons, food for all was not served at same time, nor was desserts, and my sundae would have been better with only the hot fudge not unpleasant tasting chocolate on whipped cream plus sundae arrived without an utensil. Place does not have a good feel as too chopped up. Feels like a few restaurants jammed together. Update wouldn’t hurt ambiance!

After reading reviews, we decided to have my fiancé’s birthday brunch here. The waitress brought the wrong plates out, took forever to come back so we could let her know, then came right back with the right plates. This means the correct plate was sitting ready and was cold when it reached our table! We ordered bottomless mimosas, but frequently had to wave down a waitress to even get refills. There do not have high chairs for the children which made it extremely difficult. I will say my children being loud was not a problem, so that’s a good thing right? Overall the experience was not worth the bill.

Central location for a family gathering for Sunday Brunch. Cafe 15L was great. Would definitely go back. Menu selections were very good for both breakfast plates and lunch entrees. Reasonable pricing. Loved the bottomless Mimosa pitcher. First time for Open Table recommendations and for Cafe 15L. Will use both again.

I came here to celebrate my 21st birthday and wrote this down on my reservation note. Nobody in the restaurant said happy birthday, our waitress wasn’t very good: our food came out cold, and service was slow. Ambience was perfect but wish everything else would’ve matched up to the hype.

Always great service - they are very cognizant of the fact that many people eat there just before an event downtown - and really make sure they get the food out quickly - always good, variety of menu helps with mixed group of eaters, too
