Greeted and seated promptly! Server was a bit slow and had too many tables to spend much time at each table. The spicy Ahi Tuna Poke was a great choice and came out very quickly. My quest had the Ahi Tuna salad which looked great, tasted the same. My roasted chicken came out perfect, it was done, but still juicy!

First time to this restaurant. My wife and I shared a couple of items. First we had the watermelon, tomato, and burata cheese salad. It was excellent. The next
night we went back and each had this salad.
We shared the French Dip Sandwich. They included plenty of very tasty skinny French fries. The half sandwich was enough for my wife but I could have eaten a whole sandwich. Good beer and wine selection.

We enjoyed our evening and started at the happy hour. The Blood orange martini was a hit with our group. Then we went to the dining room for dinner where our group had everything from burgers and french dip to rib eye steak. Everyone said their meal was delicious and I heard raves about the crispy french fries. I personally had the special which was a pasta with scallops and prawns. The scallops were seared just perfect and were good size sea scallops. The wait staff were friendly and effective and contributed to a great evening.

I was there for lunch and the team was great. My nephew had the western burger and a mocktail and enjoyed both. (Grilled cheese and tomato soup were excellent as well.) And, our service was fantastic. I would definitely go again.

A very open eating area and very energetic atmosphere, not a place for a quiet meal. Parking can be a challenge but they do offer valet service. However, don't use the lot next to them unless you're desperate as it is $20.00 on weekends. Overall a good place to eat.

Food and service are top notch. Unfortunately we were seated right next to the kitchen and we could not hear anything but the kitchen noise. Not good for conversation unless you specifically ask for a quieter location

We had a reservation for a group of 7 and ended up having more decide to come last minute. I understand this can be extremely frustrating to staff, yet they handled it politely and were very accommodating. Our waitress handled the large group with grace and was friendly, helpful, and patient. I wish I could remember her name so I could brag about her. The food was delicious, as usual, and we will definitely be back.

There was 6 of us for lunch. I ordered 2 small plates. The mac 'n cheese was outstanding. The chorizo soup was ok...My husband had the meatloaf and we was thrilled with it! He also said you could tell the mashed potatoes were fresh and they were great! Everyone else loved their food which included 2 more meat loaves, fish and chips, and 2 more ordered small plates like me. Decision at the end was we would all come back again!

There was a school conference in town so they were slammed with people .
Once we were seated we had to try and get some help but we finally got the attention of the asset manager and she was great . She apologized and we told her we understood what was going on .
We will return when we go to the next Music Show in July because we are all ways happy .

We had a fantastic anniversary date to Cafeteria 15L. Our server was lovely and attentive and she had good menu recommendations. The food came out quickly and was delicious. We especially loved the Thai steak salad. There’s lots of natural light in most parts of the restaurant and we thought the vibe was cool, eclectic, and classy but still relaxed.

I took my family to 15L prior to going to a musical at the Wells Fargo Pavilion and not only was the food tasty it was also delivered quickly so we didn't have to rush through our meal to get to the theatre on time. I would recommend highly.

The food was excellent, server was very nice. We ordered two small plates, the spicy ahi poke, which was amazing, and pull pork sliders, which were very good. We shared the delicious fish and chips, then finished the night off with the butterscotch blondie sundae. The only two negatives were the restaurant is very loud, and their wine and beer selection were lacking. Other than that, great place for a great dinner.

Too many great vegetables out there to not offer on your small plates menu - asparagus- cauliflower - watermelon radish - Brussel sprouts, etc. The small plates are mainly starchy and way to heavy to enjoy on a hot summer night. (My opinion)

We enjoyed the spinach dip which was good. The poke taste more like guacamole for some reason.

Burgers and fish dishes were good, the Thai salad had too many noodles.

The onion soup was delicious.

Made reservations for my birthday and asked for a quiet spot. Unfortunately, we were put right in front of the kitchen. Very loud so I wasn’t able to talk to my family. Fries were so salty that I couldn’t eat them. I told the server they were too salty but I wasn’t offered an new ones so that was a waste of money. Overall, the food is good but I expected a little more since birthday reservations were made.

Cafeteria never disappoints me whether its for brunch, lunch, or dinner! Love love love! And this visit was my first one where the club (Park) was open and with that it provided an even more upbeat, lively vibe. Music was great too.
